My wife and I stayed three nights at the Alexander and found the staff very helpful and accomodating, the location ideal, and the room comfortable though compact. The breakfasts were part of the room charge and had a nice selection of meal choices. Given that Zurich is quite expensive the breakfasts add real value to staying there. If there are... More

Hotel was selected for location near Hirschenplatz and to have a cobblestone alley ambiance. Stayed in room 309 which overlooked a courtyard garden. Rooms are very clean and nicely appointed contemporary designs although not very large. Air circulation was by window only so if traveling during hot periods, it may get quite warm. Breakfast was suitable for a good start... More

The location is Great! You can just step out of the hotel and start walking down Niederdorfstrasse. Great pasta place right next door. Rooms were a little bit small. The bathroom has a frosted glass door. A little bit inconvenient when you share with 2 other people.

Dear Luciana C., Thank you for your very affirmative comment. You are right, our rooms, specially if you share with 2 other people, are a little bit cosy. We have tried to combine modernity with usefulness. If you feel more comfortable with a regular bathroom door – we recommend our Alexander Guesthouse. If there is anything what we can do... More

This is a lovely little hotel, with a clean modern feel located on a lovely Street full of shops and restaurants. It's a short walk from the station and gives for a lovely stroll down the river to the main lake. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. Great place to stay
