Stayed at the Hirschen in December - what a great choice! Small, family run hotel in the heart of the old town, just footsteps away from all attractions Zürich has to offer. Helpful and motivated staff 24hrs a day, delicous buffet breakfast with fresh products. Rooms are quite small and basic but charming and very clean. Don't miss out the historical wine cave! Will be back!

Stayed at the Hotel Hirschen while on a business trip to Zurich. Hotel is in a great location - about a 10-15 minute walk from the Zurich main train station. Staff is very friendly and accomodating. Arrived eary on a Sunday morning after an overnight flight from the US, and they had a room ready for me for an early check in. I then asked for a room toward the rear of the hotel, and they were able to make the change. Rooms are small and not well appointed, but very comfortable and very clean. At CHF170 per night, a great value for the location, as most other hotels nearby are over CHF200 per night. Will definitely stay here again.

I work in Zurich during the week and have recently moved to this hotel from a large, higher star category due to the reviews and what I heard of the service.

My first room was to load, they moved all my things for me to another room, this one was to cold, they moved my things to another room for me...no questions asked and very eager to please.
I am served my coffee each morning, I try to pour it myself but the woman is so sweet, she insists.
Great breakfast room looking out to the old city, the rooms are quaint and comfortable, cable TV and all one needs.
I usually end up chatting with the reception employees when I return from work, such interesting and motivated staff is seldom and this hotel is not a chain, star rated or very well know...pretty amazing.
The hotel is the OLDEST B&B in all of Zurich, built around 1600 so you can imagine the inside, absolutely beautiful lobby and fixtures.
The best of all, it is over 100€ less expensive per night than the 3 star hotels I was staying in but they care!
If your in Zurich and you do not stay here, you are missing something.

Room Tip: If your a light sleeper ask for the rooms on the back side of the house, away from the elevators and...

I stayed here for 2 nights in January. It was very easy to reach this hotel via train and tram from the airport rather than using a taxi which is expensive in Zurich. The staff at this hotel were great throughout the booking process as well as during our stay.
The breakfast was great, fresh meat and cheese, yogurt, fresh fruit, croissants, bread, juice etc. The coffee was wonderful (not the pre-perculated stuff, ask for a latte or espresso & they make it fresh).
As other reviewers have stated, the room was spartan, however it was very clean. We had an outdoor deck, however as it was winter we had no cause to use this. Also, although they reset the wifi for us a couple of times, we found it to be very slow.
Overall, I would say this was a wonderful little hotel, good value for money considering the very central location. I would stay here again.

Hotel Hirschen was a great value in the perfect location for visiting Zurich. The room was a little spartan, but very clean. Breakfast was quire nice as well. The real treat was the historic "Weinschenke", a wine bar in the basement featuring a 14th century well.
