Great location, nice service, friendly staff and clean, also nice continental breakfast. However, the hotel has a bar/cafe/restaurant at the ground floor, which is the source of noise. Hotel is close to a lot of bars/restaurants, so there is a tradeoff between convenience and quietness. Overall, my experience was quite good.

Stayed at the Altastadt Hotel for 3 days. Room was a little smaller than expected. Location Superb! My main grouse is the breakfast. It was a European breakfast, so coffee, juice, bread, croissant, corn flakes, yoghurt & cheese. In all these were limited choices (1-2) The Bircher Muesli (nice taste) bowl was always empty & refills were done after 0.5-1...

A lovely small boutique hotel in the Altstatd. Close to the Kunsthof museum and gallery, and a a fabulous private gallery around the corner where you can see, and buy, Picasso and Dali originals. Fun!

Stayed at the Altstadt for 2 nights. Very good location. Near to shops, restaurants and places of interest. Just a short walk from the river in a narrow street. Room adequate and very clean with modern fittings in the shower room/toilet. The coffee bar on the ground floor is a good place to savour excellent coffee and cakes or alcohol...

Wonderful little hotel in Old Towne Zurich. Great shops and restaurants nearby and an easy walk to Bahnhofstrasse, the main shopping district. The hotel lobby was a surprise as the receptionist checked us in through a window connecting a coffee bar and the hotel. She was expecting us and immediately made us feel welcome. The hotel staff was extremely friendly...

This place when you arrive can seem awkward as the entrance is terrible, but considering the price, the location and the rooms you will love it. Ask for the rooms at the fifth floor. Breakfast is served in a nice little cosy room. Great discovery !

This is a small and friendly hotel with good location in a walking distance from the city and the lake. It was reasonably priced in mid week. Fairly good variety in the breakfast buffet. Simple and smart. Free wifi.

Receptionist was exceptionally friendly, pro-active and accommodating. Made a good welcome! Room was not as small as feared, perhaps I've travelled enough to Hong Kong and Tokyo to not expect too much. Cleanliness of the room was excellent, towels are fresh, and bathroom amenities are of good quality, if slightly limited. TV screen was a tad small, but no major...
