Very nice hotel. nothing fancy but clean, well organized, with a nice cafe, located in a great area of Zurich. Many very good restaurants were very close by. The hotel cafe was very nice with many seat in the square. We would stay there again.

It must be said: Zurich is expensive. Once you swallow that, Hotel Platzhirsch is a good value, especially if you book through their website and get breakfast included. The bed was extremely comfortable! Our room was very nice and we stayed on a level with a small balcony. It provided a great place to enjoy our take-out bratwurst and chocolates,...

Granted, we only stayed here the one night before we were due to fly back to the US so I was grumpy. We knew what we had reserved as Zurich is a notoriously expensive place to spend the night.

I stopped here for one night, on the basis of location and value, which were both excellent. The staff were friendly and efficient. The room was quiet and clean but smelled of smoke, which may have been my fault for not specifying that I preferred non-smoking.

Perfect location on a pedestrian square in the old town. Small reception but welcoming staff. Great spacious room with many facilities (opt for a private bathroom). Nespresso coffee machine, comfortable large bed, complimentary fridge. Downstairs bar has indoor/outdoor seating with good cocktails. Expensive but then Zurich is an expensive city. Would stay again.

We spent one night at Hotel Platzhirsch recently and it wasn't a good choice for us. We were on a one-day layover on our way home to avoid a 3 am wake-up in Rome so we could arrive home less tired after a 3 week vacation in Spain and Italy. And I wanted to see some of Switzerland. It is...

Very nice, but with a big disadvantage if you get a room with "shared bathroom" (meaning "shared toilet"). Going out of your room every time you need to go to the toilet (and risking getting yourself locked out!) is a BIG hassle.

This hotel was a great surprise. Well located in the "old town" City Centre, it was close to just about everything. Situated in the middle of the popular restaurant area, Niederdorf precinct, it was only 5 minites to Central railway. The hotel is a renovated historic building with stylish rooms. We thoroughly enjoyed the service and locality. Rabbitoes
