Location, location, location! This hotel has more than that. Besides great position close to the Main train station (not too close to get woken up by early trains) and to the City center at the same time, they have kind and always helpful staff, including breakfast serving early birds. Speaking of breakfast, you should try the salmon and assortment of...

This hotel is located right outside the central station in Zurich, this is one stop away from the main train station if regional/airport connections are needed. There are also plenty of restaurants in the area to choose from, ranging from sit down dinners, bars and fast food. The hotel itself was for its location fairly quite. The rooms are comfortable...

The Sorell Rutli is perfectly located for those travelling by train and first timers who want to be a stone's throw from the old town attractions. The rooms are clean, service is efficient (if not exactly warm) and everything works. Breakfast is simple but sufficient. There is little excess but given the prices in Zurich, this is best for a...

The location of this hotel is perfect for Zurich. It's 5 min away (literally!) from the actual train (i.e., S4 line). Despite being next to the train station, it is very quiet (I stayed a whole week), because it is on the other side of the river. Plenty of restaurants nearby, although be prepared to pay a high price for...

Location is good for the rail station and for night life Yet still in a quiet location. All staff very helpful. Room had plenty of room and a novel solution to those that find bathrooms claustrophobic. Good breakfast (but no egg and bacon.) a little pricy but then that's Switzland. River is round the corner The lake a 20minutes away.
