Pleasant 10 min walk to the Niederdorf district, a bit further to the old town and churches. Nice staff, helpful, we needed a Swiss electric outlet adaptor which they let us use during our stay for free. Parking is very inexpensive (CHF5) and right outside the door, amazing. The standard family room was a little tight for 2 adults and...

We spent two nights here in July of 2016 and thoroughly enjoyed our stay: friendly service, nice rooms, excellent breakfast, and all at reasonable prices for the city of Zurich. The walk to the center was about ten minutes; and the tram passes directly by the hotel. The Sorell has a few parking places, and it is necessary to reserve...

The hotel is only 10 minutes walk from the center of Zurich. The hotel staff is friendly and attentive. we had a place to park the car. They were also very helpful to give information about Zurich. The room was nice, with everything you need and a private bathroom. The bed was comfortable. just I did not like the pillows...

On a leisure weekend we needed a value price hotel given the sky-high prices in Zurich. This fitted the bill well and we found the location very good as it's yards from the tramstop with trams which run every few minutes not only into the centre of town but beyond to the lakeside if you wish. Your tram stop is...

This is a lovely hotel and only a 10 minute walk from the train station. It is quiet and away from the downtown noise, but so easy to get to the shops, restaurants and bars, if you desire. The hotel is along the bus stop. Take # 7. It comes by every 5 minutes. 3 stops are free and that's...
