"Right in the Heart of Things"

The Alexander is a short walk from the train station and convenient to all the fun of the Old Town in Zurich. We were given an upgrade from the Guesthouse to the Main Hotel. Our room was clean and comfortable. We were right among the cobblestone alleys of the Old Town and only 5 minutes walk from the shopping along Bahnhofstrasse. We'll stay at the Alexander again on our next trip.

This location was very close to an event I was participating in. I arrived late in the evening. Luckily I had my confirmation number in the email on my phone because I needed it to automatically release the key card for entry. Without it, I would have been hosed. The amenities were simple: instant coffee and tea. The light switch in the bathroom had a broken frame but functioned fine. The wood slats in the floor were loose, but not problematic. I appreciated the real glass drinking glass in the bathroom. The water was nice and hot. The bathroom fixtures were modern. Staff was friendly the next morning when I went for breakfast (a few blocks away at the main desk). I would stay there again.

This hotel is reasonably close to the train station, and not too far from the major tourist attractions. It is, however, in a semi-seedy area (strip clubs and transvestites abound), though it doesn't feel unsafe. It's fine for an adventurous couple, and it is very clean and comfortable.

Room was clean and attractive. Late night/early morning noise levels from in-house bars are annoying but bedside ear plugs are provided. "G" Hotel means gay but did not bother me. Interesting and picturesque neighborhood.
