Superb 9.0 From 161 reviews

Very Good 8.0
Small, quaint, and just what we needed!
This was the perfect place for us to stay in Zurich for one night. We hope to come back and be able to explore the city even more. We checked in quick and easy once we arrived. The room was small and quaint but perfect for what we needed as we were only in the room to sleep and shower. The breakfast was just enough but nothing to rave about. The hotel staff was prompt and helpful when needed. The only complaint we might have is that our room didn’t get as cool as we would like but nothing to ruin the stay. We will recommend hotel Alexander to anyone who needs a quick spot. The neighborhood is awesome and lively, tons of restaurants and walking distance to the river.
