Great hotel with free breakfast buffet
Located about a 15 minute walk from Zurich HB train station. A few good restaurants nearby. This hotel has a bar/restaurant downstairs which serves great food.
Diana, us3 night trip
Very Good 8.0
Would recommend.
Overall Altstadt was very good. It has modern, clean rooms with good bedding and is situated in a desirable spot close to public transport as well as within Zurich’s old town itself. The front desk was also friendly. I also definitely appreciated the free breakfast though I do have to say that it was very standard when compared to the other places I stayed in Switzerland. For instance the croissants were really just standard United States super market croissants. Overall good stay and would recommend.
Matt, us2 night family trip
Very Good 8.0
Zurich stay
It is a great hotel with very friendly and helpful staff. The only thing that was disappointing was the breakfast. The spread was really really sad and didn't live upto my expectations. It was good that there was something to eat in the mornings but definitely nothing to get excited about. The rooms are quite nice and cozy. Another thing to note for people travelling solo and booking a single room is that they are not air conditioned. So could be a problem in the summers.
