In a quiet neighborhood, close to the tram stop and a nice walk (10 min) away from the center. Room big enough but not very stylish but at least not terribly old fashion like some hotels in Switzerland. Bed was comfy, bathroom a bit small and old fashioned. Shower small but powerful and hot enough. Breakfast is well organized and...

Hotel Plattenhof was a good place to stay for one night in Zurich. It is located in a quiet area near the university. The tram stop was a block away and got you to the train station in a couple of minutes. The staff was helpful. The room we had was a good size, but the furniture was a bit...

Stayed here with 4 female friends on a weekend away in Zurich. The whole hotel is very stylish and well designed. Rooms were large with comfy beds and cool furniture. Our bathroom was bit on the small side but our friends room had a bathroom which was huge so I guess all the rooms are all different. There is a...

Good location for weekend break with easy access to city centre via tram and only a twenty minute walk. Hotel is clean and comfortable, room amenities are fairly basic but adequate. Breakfast is provided and is plentiful. Popular bar area serves snacks throughout day. Good place to stay if you can get a deal on the price otherwise expensive for...

Lovely location, mostly quiet except for loud church bells every quarter hour, which is nobody's fault, just a little annoying if you have jet lag! Staff was courteous and helpful, the only improvement I would suggest is that they deoderize the lobby / entrance as it smells like cigarrette smoke. Also, would have been nice to have free WI-FI connectivity,...

This hotel is not really 3 star hotel, I would say. The location is quite good but the hotel room itself is terrible. We had double room and for example our bed was not in line. I mean that the headside was lower than feetside. And there was really nothing in room but 1 lousy bed, small tv and chair....

Plattenhof is a boutique style hotel with some basic but very fashioned designed rooms, it represents all the oposite from the service of the major hotel chains, it has charme, nice people and a fair price. I enjoyed the not so standard breakfast & restaurant and its quite location, the city center is a 15min walk away. You look for...

We stayed there for one night after a hectic ski holiday in Wengen. The staff were really helpful although we wanted to eat in their restaurant and it was closed. They recommemded other places to eat.The bar in the hotel is super. We found a brilliant susi place called ' Ginger'. This hotel is perfect for a short stay in...

I had spent the 3 previous nights of my stay in the Marriot on business, checked into the Plattenhof because it was cheaper. It was ok, but really no more than a B&B and a bit of a walk out of town. The rooms are trendy, bed not that comfortable (I requested a twin and got a double room which...
