I picked this hotel based on the fellow traveler reviews. My experience was ok but not stellar. To start positive, check-in was streamlined and breakfast service was excellent. The room was fairly large in European terms. The location is excellent. On the negative side, Wi-Fi in the room wasn't fast (but was quite fast in the breakfast room). I cranked...

Hotel was easy to get to from the airport, just a 20min tram then a 10min walk, and only a 15min walk from the city centre. We were able to check in early, and the front desk attendant was so friendly and helpful, and gave us lots of ideas as to what to see and do. The staff all spoke...

Most important asset of Plattenhof hotel is its staff, extremely helpful, always exceed our expectations. My wife and I have been staying in this hotel for years. Location on a quiet street, proximity to old town and the main train station, lovely rooms, great breakfast, and outstanding value.

Very nice hotel! Great shower and comfortable beds (they are separate -FYI for Americans not used to that). It's in a quiet area not far (walking) from the center of town. There's also a nice cafe and restaurant attached.

I stayed here for one night while in town for work. A modern and minimalistic style hotel, yet with a nice and welcoming feel and friendly and helpful staff. Rooms are great for working and breakfast buffet was of high quality. A nice café is connected, but didn't get the time to try it, though it looked good. Although this...

For Zurich, this hotel is an outstanding value: clean rooms with good service and excellent breakfasts. About a mile from much of the shopping and restaurants of the old city, the area around the hotel is quiet and safe.

Booked this online, not knowing Zurich, bit of a climb from station! Really new, staff great, bed very low, breakfast excellent. In beautiful part of city close to university. Not sure if value for money as Switzerland is very expensive but booked through Expedia.

The real challenge in Zurich is finding a good hotel room for a decent price. While the Plattenhof is not the ideal solution, it is without doubt a perfectly acceptable stand-in until I someday find one better. Great staff, excellent location, good price (for Zurich). Clean and safe, while rooms are predictably a little cramped (hey, this is Europe folks).

This is a small place near the university area. There are a couple of restaurants nearby and the old town area is walk-able. (Though a mostly uphill walk after dinner!) The room was small-ish but OK. The platform style bed was set very low to the floor which was uncomfortable to get into and out of, but slept well. The...
