“Fantastic boutique hotel - book the roof terrace room 52”
Reviewed 9 February 2011

I stayed one night in the Altstadt Hotel in the old town. Downstairs is a small cafe that includes the reception desk. First floor is a breakfast room. Lifts and stairs to 3 more floors of rooms. I had the 'roof terrace' room on the fifth floor. Vaulted ceiling, small bathroom with toilet and shower, bed and a couple of contemporary chairs. Inside the room is stairs that lead to a private roof terrace with views over the rooftops, the river and churches. Very clean room. Excellent breakfast, I had on the roof terrace. I would have given 5 stars if there was very high-speed WiFi (no signal at the top, only plug-in), morning English newspapers and having a 'do not disturb' sign for the door (?)

Excellent location and what a great little hotel! in the centre of the old city of Zurich this hotel was so easy to find / get to via Tram once we caught the Train from the Airport to the main station. Great staff and very friendly, always happy to help with any questions and point us in the direction of 'must see's' in Zurich. Good breakfast and a nice bar downstairs with plenty of restaurants / bars around the area aswell. Only downside was that rooms can be a tad small but still decent!

Great location walking distance to everything. No climate control in rooms so you need to open windows and it gets noisy at all hours. Lots of bars and restaurants may be too close by? A relative value in an expensive city.

I couldn't have been happier with the hotel. The location was excellent, it was in the heart of the old town and within minutes of all the bars and restaurants. The room was a good size and nicely decorated. Breakfast was continental style, cold meats, cheese, etc. The only slightly negative point is that you do occasionally get the odd slightly sozzled person singing outside but this is to be expected as its in the heart of the city.

Stay here if: you are after a nicely decorated, good value hotel in the centre of Zurich
Don't stay here if: you want to sleep soundly all night and like to have a fry up for breakfast
