"Hotel Ruetli - great location at affordable rate"
I was surprised to see how close it was to the train station which is crucial for a businessman or tourist.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good Value in a Good Location"
Although the neighborhood is on the edge of sketchy (we were propositioned by the hookers down the street two nights in a row), the hotel was clean and modern and well priced. It is also a very brief walk to most locations of interest to tourists. I would stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I've stayed in this neighborhood previously at a different hotel - would stay at the Ruetli again. Very satisfied - can't beat the price for the cleanliness & location,Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel Ruetli-Zurich- astoundingly convenient"
I travel for pleasure a lot. This 50-year old single gal from Upper West Side of Manhattan was just looking for a reasonable and convenient hotel in Zurich for a 4-day Thanksgiving weekend 2011. I was amazed at how convenient this hotel was to everything. I actually timed how long it took me to get from Airport landing, train, Hauptbanhof, walk to hotel, […] and be ready to check in. I couldn't believe how convenient it all was, going and coming. Anything I did, I knew how simple it would be to merely cross the river and be back at the hotel in no time. Usually you DON'T want to stay near a European train station neighborhood, but this is an absolute exception. The "Coop" food store is also nearby. The Swiss National Museum was a quick walk. Going back to the Rail station rear side to join a tram tour of the city was a quick walk. Going shopping the length of Banhofstrasse (often) was, each time, a quick walk to it or home from any one of the sites you'll be wanting to see. Generally, Zurich is just a pedestrian and ultimately manageable city. But I researched finding a very inexpensive hotel for the 3 nights I'd need one over Thanksgiving. Others at this price (and even more) did NOT have private bathroom, did NOT include breakfast, were NOT as close into the places you'd want to be. I also had a personal Nespresso pod coffee maker in my room with two kinds of pod coffee. (Loved it!) Also had an amazing glass-in shower stall (not the typical Euro-style drafty one). People I tell how much I got this hotel for and that I got it on Hotels.com were very impressed. I didn't want or need Internet (for a charge), although I did have my iPad2 with me, but they do supply a keyboard and there's an amazing flat-screen TV in each room cantilevered out from a wall over the desk which can be your monitor. There were the standard International Herald Tribunes each day, planted by the elevators and I was able to catch up on news that way too, along with all the BBC channels on TV.

"Hotel Ruetli Zurich"
The Hotel Ruetli Zurich is located in the Old Town area. Very easy to located. As a single female traveling alone, I felt very safe in this location. They featured an excellent breakfast buffet, very friendly staff members. Comfortable bed. Small shower. Clean room and bathroom. It was warm in the room and the AC Heat unit was hard to operate. Left […] window open most of the time. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Location is excellent! Tram system is right round the corner and gets you anywhere. Don't spend the $60 taxi fair to the airport. Take #10 tram for $6 each. So easy. We felt very comfortable here. Theonly night we had any noise from the pub across the street was a Saturday night. All other nights were very quiet.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Zurich nonbusiness hotel - close to train station"
Clean, well maintained facility. Unusual bathroom (glass walls) but otherwise functional. Efficient but disspirited staff. On-site breakfast. Very convenient to local restaurants, train station.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Close to train station, but watch out for the taxi drivers they would not take us to the hotel because it was too close but they would not give us directions.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect location and amenitites"
We were very pleased with our stay. We would recommend it to family or friends who might travel to Zurich. The bonus was an excellent breakfast buffet. The hotel was very clean and the room surpassed our expectations.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Clean and convenient"
We needed a place to stay before our early flight out of Zurich. This hotel is about 5 minutes from the train station. There are plenty of bars and restaurants nearby but noise was not a problem. Breakfast was just ok. It was a good value for the price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The Hotel Ruetli in Zurich-great location"
The hotel was perfectly located just a 5 minute walk from the central train station. The staff was very helpful and although located on a street with some bars, even with my window open I was not disturbed during the night with street noise. I will stay again on my next trip to Zurich!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel Ruetli, Zurich"
It will be good if some channels are free to watch in Television and free internet. Or can be included these cost in the rates.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Exceeded our expectations. Large updated room with comfortable bed. Breakfast excellent, a special bargain given the cost of everything in Switz. Hotel rated 3 stars with 4 star comfort but 3 star price. Would definitely stay their again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to main train station"
The main advantage of this hotel is being so close to the main train station and at a reasonable price for Zurich. It is very clean and the room very comfortable but I was not able to sleep all night because of the very noisy trams , buses and trolleys going by every five minutes all night.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
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
We thought the hotel and hotel staff were wonderful!! The hotel was close to shops and the railway station andbus station for our trips out of the city.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Excellent location. 8 min walk from the main train station in Zurich no problem to pull luggage with you. Quite spot. Easy to find, friendly staff and room well appointed and very clean.

Response by Sorell Hotel Rütli Hello Chris Many thanks for your feedback.
"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

"Nice hotel across from railway station"
No room safe but had one near reception, very good security on this. No room fridge, so we put the soft drinks in between the double glazing and the window, worked a treat. But of course this only works in winter time. Breakfast ok but a little primitive.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Sorell Hotel Rütli Hello Terri Many thanks for your feedback. In each room is normally a room safe but you can also leave your things in the hotel safe at the front desk. The minibar in the room is not a fridge you a right. For real cooling you have to bring it at the front desk that we can do it in the fridge. We will do our utmost to improve our service in your interest. Hope to welcome you back again.
It is clean and has a good location with nice breakfast, reception staff a bit cold. there's no free tv channels which I found it a bit frustrating otherwise a good price quality.Genuine Expedia guest review

Great hotel and located by everything. I lucked out and found a parking spot just outside the hotel, otherwise there is no hotel parking.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Sorell Hotel Rütli Dear Keith Thank you for your nice comments. You are right because of the parking spot you were lucky. Traveling to Zürich is much more comfortable by train.
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
Response by Sorell Hotel Rütli Hello Guest We would like to thank you for the comments that we were able to receive. Please ask for a higher floor at your booking by the next visit and we try our best to give you a nice room.

"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.

Went for a week with toddler and husband. Good location-right near central station thus connected to airport, zoo and old Zurich. Only problem was that you don't get much for your money (no pool or gym etc) but I assume that's the case with most in Zurich!Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Sorell Hotel Rütli Hello Bhavini Thank you very much for having chosen Hotel Rütli for your visit in Zurich and many thanks for your feedback. It is correct, that we have no pool or gym.

"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.

We regret that we were not able to fully meet your expectations during your stay at Hotel Rütli and we are sorry that you were not satisfied with our breakfast selection.

It would be nice if we could prove ourselves during your next visit and to show that we can be better than the last time. Best wishes from Hotel Rütli
"centrally located and accessible"
Hotel is located right next to the train station and tram central. Excellent location! Although most things in Zurich are within walking distance, it's easy to hop onto a tram or bus to get to your destination! Breakfast is delicious and you can pair it with a glass of bubbly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice little haven for a winter in Zurich"
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. Only caveat: single room a bit too small and difficult to control the room temperature […] - too hot in the middle of the night. Overall I had a good experience and can definitely recommend the Ruetli. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Fantastic. Great hotel, clean, friendly staff, great location. This is a nice quiet hotel a short walk from the Train station in Old Town, and a short walk to the main shopping street.

Many thanks to management […] and staff, we will use this hotel again next time we are back in Zurich Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
