There was a lot of restaruants and shopping within walking distance of the hotel. It was also a short walk to the train station. The staff was very helpful booking day trips into the countryside/Alps for us.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel with good location"
The hotel lobby and rooms are decorated well. The rooms are spacious and beds are comfortable. The hotel is an easy 5 min walk from the maintain station. You can walk to "old town" a beautiful area to walk through Zurich, just 3 min walk. Breakfast was included was good but wish there was more variety. I would return to this hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Hotel Ruetli in Zurich - impossibly well located"
I love love love this hotel. It is always a little nerve-wracking to book a hotel blindly, especially in a country where you don't speak the language. But this was a big big win! It is a quick five minute walk over the river and has plenty of restaurants and nightlife in the area. I know that might be a negative if you're looking for quiet Swiss solitude, […] but despite boisterous bar patrons singing late into the night, I slept fine, and it was fun to be near the action. Zurich's downtown area is compact, so this hotel location isn't exactly exclusive, there are plenty of places that are equally convenient, but this place is recently updated, with stylish looking rooms, even when it is just a single bed. The "Central" transit terminal is right outside, so if you want to venture on the public transit, there are several lines that come through there. The internet is pricy - like most places in Switzerland, but the breakfast is included and is really generous - there is even prosecco!! I mean who DOESN'T want that when on vacation. Stay here - you won't be sorry! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
First, I got a fairly good rate. The hotel is centrally and conveniently located - very close to the Old Town and the Main Train Station. The day time receptionist was very nice, patient and helpful. The breakfast buffet was really a welcome and very good. Will definitely stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect center/town location"
Great location just a few blocks from the main railroad station. The street it is on, and the next street are the heart of the 'old town' and the location of all the restaurants as well as the way to the Munster itself in the center of the ancient city. The hotel itself is immaculate and charming, with very modern accents, friendly staff, free computer, […] and lots of assistance. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location and value"
Hotel has been recently remodeled and rooms are very contemporary with large bathroom (at least in our room). Rooms have AC so windows can be closed at night eliminating all street noise. Totally convenient to Zurich main train station and right at the north end of the old town making the river and lake an easy walk. Given the location in Zurich and […] the recent remodel, we felt this was a good value. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect Spot in Zurich"
I booked this hotel after looking through reviews and comparing prices, and Hotel Ruetli is definitely a great value. The location is perfect, quick walk from the main train station and center of town for shopping, sightseeing, etc. I stayed in a city room and it was very comfortable; nice bed, spacious bathroom, minibar and nespresso machine. I only […] wish that the internet was included in the rate. The breakfast was simple but very tasty. All of the staff members were friendly and willing to help with questions about the area. I highly recommend the hotel for any kind of stay in Zurich! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ease and Convenience in the Heart of Zurich"
A very convenient and comfortable place to stay in Zurich. For a single female traveler, the central and convenient location of this hotel was perfect, as was the 24 hours-staffed front desk. Very helpful and attentive staff that spoke English well and were efficient with check-in and check-out. Nespresso coffee makes a plus!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel Rütli in Zurich - Nice hotel, great location"
The Hotel Rütli is located a few short feet from Central at the entrance to Old Town. The location is great for exploring, as the nearby tram stop has several lines that cross here. The hotel is also less than a 5 minute walk from the Zurich Hauptbahnhof (main train station), again making this an extremely convenient location in the heart of the city. The […] hotel was renovated in 2010 and the rooms are very nice and modern, with many of the amenities you'd want, including flat screen TVs and private bathrooms. Another nice thing is that the room windows open completely, which is great for when the weather is nice. There is also a free-to-use computer with internet access located in the lobby near the fireplace. The staff was very nice and accommodating. They allowed me to check my bags until my room was ready, and even prepared my room early so I could check in after a red-eye flight from NY. The hotel offers a small continental breakfast each morning with basic foods: breads, meats, cereals & granola, yogurt, etc. Nothing outstanding, but nice nonetheless. There are a few things that I would have to advise other travelers of, however: (1) You will hear guest in other rooms in the hotel, in particular if a chair is moved or a door opened or closed. These noises were frequent and much louder than you may normally expect to hear in a hotel. For me, there were far too many other guests up at all hours, making sleep at times difficult; (2) the heating/cooling unit in the room was either too difficult for me to figure out, or outright broken. I could never get it to work, but thankfully the weather was cool and I was able to regulate the temperature by opening or closing windows. (3) While the location is outstanding, be advised that there is a slightly seedy element at night just a few blocks up the street to the East (away from the Central tram stop). Nothing that I felt was dangerous, but something to be aware of. Despite a couple of issues, I would recommend th Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"friendly, efficient, fantastic location"
Can't beat the location 3 short blocks from Zuirch main station, around the corner from the Central tram stop. Some have complained about the noise, I stayed in a city room on the 4th floor and didn't hear any kind of street noise. The 4th floor city room on the end is interesting, it features three skylights (in place of windows) that frame one of […] the Zurich steeples exactly -- refresh change from standard hotel setup. Staff was friendly and efficient, breakfast was ample and tasty, the coffee was great. Wouldn't come just for the breakfast but was a nice bonus on the room. Overall would definitely stay again when in Zurich. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is within 5 min. walking distance of the main train station. The reception staff were professional and friendly throughout the week, helpful with questions about nearby restaurants and attractions. The breakfast selection always fresh and plentiful. The restaurant attendant kept the area clean and neat, she was exceptionally friendly. Housekeeping […] excellent. Room was spacious and well appointed. Air/heater worked perfectly. A bit noisy at night from the street below. Overall and excellent hotel stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Its probably the best bang for your buck in Zurich. Very nice place, especialy considering that Switzerland is very expensive. Very clean, very safe, nice staff. Has free internet station at the lobby. Good Breakfast buffet, which would normaly cost around 15 to 20 franks anywhere. Exactly in the center of the city. 5 minute walk from the train station […] HB. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice enough, expensive, rip-off internet charges"
The hotel was nicely appointed, very clean and tidy. They even had Prosecco to go with the very good contintental breakfast on Sunday morning. Zurich is expensive, but their internet rates were egregious. Expedia needs to include these in the hotel information as this is often a decision point.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Clean, new, good location"
Very pleasant stay, well located, 5.minutes from Main train station. Elevator, excellent breakfasts: reall could not ask for more.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Would stay there again"
This was a very cute, small, and modern hotel. It is located within walking distance of the main train station and close to restaurants. The staff was nice and helpful. Breakfast was ok. It was the same food everyday, therefore if you're staying for more than 3 days you may be tired of the same thing. But would definitely stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel Rütli in Zürich"
We stayed 3 nights at Hotel Rütli, and it was fantastic! First, the location is great. If you are arriving by train, the hotel is a short walk across Bahnhof Brücke from the main train station, or if you take the #10 tram from the airport, the Central stop is even closer to the hotel. The area in which it is situated, the Niederdorf, is also great. […] It's a younger area with a lot of takeaways, restaurants, bars, and cafes. From the hotel, it's also easy to see the major sights in Zürich. Although it's up the river from the Fraumünster, Großmünster, etc., the main part of Zürich is easily walkable (e.g., it's about a 10 min. walk to the Großmünster from the hotel and 15-20 min. all the way down to the lake). It's also just below the hill on which the ETH and university are located, and between the train station and hotel is a great supermarket for snacks or a cheap meal. In addition to the great location, the hotel itself is great! We had a "City Room," which was decorated by a graffiti artist. The furniture was comfortable and sleek. Our double room had a small sitting area, desk, comfortable bed, and a nice bathroom. We also had breakfast included, which was quite tasty. It was a typical Swiss/German breakfast consisting of yogurt, müsli, breads, croissants, rolls, cheese, meats, soft boiled eggs, etc. Additionally, we found the staff to be very helpful and friendly, as we asked for assistance several times. Although we speak a little German, we found Swiss German difficult to understand, but the staff kindly spoke English when requested. They also helped us call a local restaurant to make a reservation. Finally, the free computer/internet in the lobby is nice -- very convenient to look up info. on where you're going in the city on your way out (and much better than paying the pricey rate in your room if you don't mind not being online all the time). Overall, we had a great stay and a wonderful time in Zürich! We highly recommend Hotel Rütli! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"At the centre of action"
I stayed three nights at the Sorell Hotel Rütli. It is a clean, comfortable and well located hotel, in the old part of Zurich, and close to the river and walking areas. I received friendly and attentive service from the staff, and my room was excellent. Although fronting the street, it was well protected from sound and cold by double glazing. I recommend […] using the extra pillow - supply of a feather pillow as well as a thicker pillow is in each room. Breakfast was fabulous and the buffet was well maintained throughout the breakfast period. There are a large number of bars and restaurants in the area, and the train station is a short 5 to 10 minute stroll with luggage. Highly recommended for short or longer stays for business or pleasure.. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

I asked for a room in silent zone, but it was on the 1st floor and you could hear noise from the street (a lot of bars nearby). Central location, 5-7 min walking distance from main station, near known street with restaurants, bars and night clubs..Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Very Nice Place"
This was a pleasing hotel with a modern look, I had a single room that had no view, but the room and bathroom were very nice with a comfortable bed.

Hotel is in a great location close to the Hauptbahnhof and Central tram stations. Facilities were fine. Room was large and cool in the summer.

"No Problem, Can try this Hotel Ruetli."
I have stayed in Ruetli twice already. The Hotel is located very close to the central station just across the river. its merely 5 mins walk from central Station. The staff is very warm and wonderfull towards their guest. The room was ready much before commited time and everything was in its place. The bad part is: there was some water leaking in some […] tap all thru night and that really disturbed me, more so ever because it was not from my bathroom tap. The voice came from somewhere I dont know how? The worst part is the breakfast is just not worth it. Very poor spread. They have almost nothing for Indian Vegitarian.

Travelled solo, spent three nights at the Ruetli. Excellent location, staff courteous and helfpul (all clearly proud of the hotel, which is a very good sign), invigorating breakfast, pleasant decor, nice homely feeling to be back in the evening after a day out in the snow.

"Great hotel in a noisy street."
This was a really nice hotel with friendly helpful staff. Excellent breakfast, and a comfortable room. The only drawback (which isn't the hotel's fault) is the noisy (and late open) bar just up the street. You have a choice: close the window (it's then a quiet room) but you have to use the airconditioning, which is fine: or, have windows open and put […] up with the noise from the bar - which wasn't really an option as the noise was too much for sleep. I suppose we could have got dressed and joined them! I expect in winter, when the drinkers are inside, the issue wouldn't arise. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

I really like this hotel but they charge a lot of money for 3 hours to use the internet! So unless they sort this out I wont be staying again. I very much like the rooms and location, but if I need to work, I cant sit in the lobby to use the internet! And paying 15 CHF for 3 hours is a total rip-off!
