My first time in Zurich, second time in Switzerland. The location of the hotel is actually quite perfect, not too far from the city center, tram stop just in front, across a bakery and an Italian take away. Which does come in handy as the hotel does not offer room service, a bar, nor a restaurant (at lunch or in...

The map shows that the Sorell Hotel Rex is about 1km from the Zurich HB train station - but be advised that it's a steep uphill walk. Though a couple of tram lines go very close to the hotel, so it might be a good idea to buy your local transport passes and take the tram to the hotel instead...

Stayed in a family room over Easter - great value for money! + Cannot fault the breakfast in this hotel! Lovely hot and cold continental selection and warm friendly welcome by the staff members every morning! Would highly recommend their muffins and homemade pumpkin jam! Really appreciated the tea/coffee facilities in the rooms, strong wifi, hot shower and cozy beds....

Before we arrived at the hotel the staff had been in contact both in response to my questions and to remind us of our upcoming stay. When we arrived we were greeted by fresh iced tea and a warm reception. There are lovely plants- mainly orchids- everywhere. We arrived at 2pm and our room was ready for us. In the...

Excellent friendly professional employees. Very clean and well maintained. Nice Breakfast ... As a small hotel it might miss some amenities/services from a big sized Hotel - but I can very much recommend this fine place. Fantastic location, Take Tram # 7 (station very close) to the Main Train station down town ...it takes you just about 5-6 minutes only...

We enjoyed our stay here. The room was very small and typical price for the city. Breakfast was good not great but we enjoyed it. The best part is the location and helpful staff. Right on main metro line in a nice neighborhood. We walked to a nice restaurant for dinner. Felt very safe. Hotel was quiet even on a...

+: The room is quite spacious and the bathroom was very clean. The windows are big so providing good ventilation but the mobile aircon in our room didn't really work. The breakfast offered sufficient variety. Staffers were young but courteous and helpful. Easily accessible from the city centre/ main train station by tram stopping at the front. Quiet and safe...

We stayed here for 2 nights, one of them New Years Eve, and the receptionist was very kind and helpful! It was in a pretty good location - from the train station you take the # 7 tram (which is just a 2 min walk outside the train station) and stay on for 4 stops to get to the hotel....
