It's worth learning how to find the hotel. The hotel is located right in the middle of the pedestrians only old town shopping area. As a previous reviewer commented, they were charged a lot of money by a taxi driver who had difficulty. It is not too hard to find from the Stadlehofen train station and only takes a few...

I stayed 1 night because I had a flight to catch the next morning and didn't want to spend a lot of money. The location is excellent. It's in the old town near the Stadelhofer train station, on a cobble-stone pedestrian-only lane. Tons of restaurants and bars nearby. Price was low for Zurich, though more than I normally pay for...

...well, I agreed with them and I really liked this place. I could only add- taxi drivers found it hard to get me here. I walked nearly all the way on a nice evening well after sunset and because it's on a cobbled pedestrianised street and there's a one way system, the fare was huge- it involved a detour and...

if you just need a functional place for a short stay, then Hotel Otter is just fine. We shared the toilet and bathroom with two other rooms on the same floor, but the arrangement was acceptable. The neighborhood is great with the old part of town and good restaurants just a few minutes away. But we would not stay beyond...

We had a single night stopover at this hotel on a Saturday night. It was winter so noise was not a problem. The room was clean, large and centrally heated. The staff were very friendly and helpful and have an Australian connection. No rooms have private facilities which is reflected in the tariff. However, the shared facilities were clean and...

This was an overnight stopover only, which was a pity, but Hotel Otter was a pleasant experience. It was spotlessly clean, the staff were really friendly and it was obviously well run. Breakfast was very good, taken in the bar downstairs which we really enjoyed. We were a family of 2 adults and 2 teenagers and it suited us perfectly.

Excellent hotel right in the centre of Zurich, and only a couple of minutes' walk from Stadelhofen train station. The room was very clean, comfortable and spacious, with a sink in the room, and a shared toilet and bathroom. The staff are friendly and helpful, the wi-fi is good (and free), and the breakfast buffet (croissants, bread, boiled eggs, cheese,...

Great location in old town with themed bedrooms. Very clean and cute touches like bright pink dyed eggshells on our hard boiled eggs this morning. Very happy with hotel for the price. Close to train station and trams and beautiful tiny bakery across the road.
