Been here for a business trip, nice rooms, very nice desk service, good beer choice at Mojo bar. Close to the rail station, the old town, the famous wooden bridge. But the rubber ducky in the bathroom wins it all :)

It was very good and nice to stay in the Hotel Speer. But I suggest to check what is available in your room (I mean extras) and what id not, in order to avoid to pay for extras that you do not used (food and beverage).

Ideal when you travel by train with a heavy suitcase, the hotel is right next to the station. The hotel staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. We had a room in the back, very quiet. But I can imagine a room in the front being more noisy.

The hotel Speer is located right in front of the Railway station so for me a great location but has even more positive aspects as a traveller or holiday maker you literally have the beautiful lake Zurich just yard away and that is fabulous.

My wife and I stayed here with another couple for a biking trip. The staff was kind enough to let us store the bikes in a back room, which was above and beyond what we expected. The rooms are average sized, the bonus was the excellent air conditioning which felt great after the long bike ride. Shower was fine, the...

Reviewed 23 July 2016

Perhaps the best hotel in Switzerland when comparing the price and the standard. I only wonder -again- why it is not possible to have a 3rd floor room according to my wishes although I make the reservation over one month in advance. However, all rooms have been of a high value.
