This was my second stay in Hotel Altstadt. During my most recent stay I stayed in a triple room with family. The hotel is located in Old Town Zurich. It really is a great location as it is only a few stops from Zurich Hauptbahnhof while being in the heart of the Old Town. It's very fun to just walk...

The location is just perfect - once you step out of the hotel you are in the midst of all the wonderful things in Altstadt. The rooms, their "literary" differentiation and decoration were great. Pre-arrival: Fantastic service. We had a slight complication to be accomodated, and they went the extra mile to support us. Room: Lovely room, proper french bed....

We stayed in this hotel for a Saturday night in June. This is a lovely hotel in a really picturesque part of the city. The staff were very welcoming on arrival and through out the stay. The rooms are themed after authors and with a collection of their works within the room. The rooms were spacious and thoughtfully laid out....

We were looking for a historical Swiss hotel in old town Zurich while there for a business meeting and Altstsadt was perfect. Friendly staff, comfortable room and perfect location within walking distance of everything in the old town and the lake. Breakfast was good and the service was friendly. Would definitely go back.

Just 10 minutes walk from the central station I checked in to this small and charming hotel, perfect location if you have meetings in the center. Small but nice rooms. Great comfort and with a large and nice bed. The breakfast was ok, just missed thy gluten free stuff.. I'll be back D.

A simple, clean hotel with (typical for Zuerich) small rooms. As standard in Zuerich you pay a lot for what you get. All in all: if you're looking for a hotel in the walkable centre, there you go. The staff is friendly, a nice café connected to the hotel, all good. If you arrive by car, be prepared: it's really...

We spent two nights and although we live in southern Switzerland and are aware how expensive this beautiful country is this hotel is absurdly priced. The room is very small and the bathroom is beyond tiny. There is not even space for a shower door so the bathroom gets soaked from taking a shower. We stayed in the fifth floor...
