Urban, centrally located and well priced! hotel marta offers affordable rooms designed in a playfully puristic way in an extraordinary location in Zurich. All 39 rooms are equipped with a private bathroom. Breakfast is always included in our rates. And of course you can use the free highspeed WIFI connection throughout the whole hotel. The hotel marta was built by the famous architect Werner Stücheli in the 50ies. The front of the building, the spiral stairs and the breakfast room are landmarks of that time. The 2-star bed & breakfast hotel marta is located at the «central square» within walking distance from Zurich's main railway station (only 5 min). At the entrance of the «Niederdorf quarter» (old city) near trendy restaurants, cafés, the sights of the old city, the universities, the lake and the main shopping area.

Property's Favourite Review
This was a great find for us for many reasons: - the staff from the moment I first emailed a question until the moment we checked out were prompt, efficent, helpful, and always happy. Possibly the most courteois and helpful rexeption staff we have encountered. - impeccably clean hotel and rooms: spotless. - awesome location: 5 minutes from main train station,1 minute from trams, old town with all its shops, bars and restaurants at your doorstep. - our large 3 bes room had more than enough space for the 3 of us. - breakfast (which is includex) was beautiful and plenty of variety. - amazing cause: offering employment to women with social difficulties. Staff were excellent. For a 2 star hotel it is a definite 5 star review for value for money, courteous and helpful staff, cleanliness, location, and included breakfast. The street noise can be heard most nights, but the hotel supply earplugs, which we did not need. I don’t think you could get better in Zurich for the price.

The hotel is located in a great location, an easy 7-10 minute walk from the train station or one tram stop (“Central” station). This was our second visit. The hotel itself and the rooms we’ve had, facing the front of the building, were reasonably quiet, considering how close the hotel is to so many lively bars and restaurants. We did sleep with earplugs (which are provided by the hotel without having to ask) as we keep the window open and there was some noise late into Saturday night from a place nearby. The hotel is kept very clean; we had no concerns at all about staying here during a pandemic. The breakfast is nice (not a hot breakfast, but certainly a nice variety of fresh bread, fruit, yogurt, cheese, cereals, coffee and tea and more) served in a spacious room where you can feel comfortable. I especially appreciate the kind staff who make the place feel warm and welcoming. This is not a luxury hotel, but it doesn’t need to be; it is a reasonably-priced, comfortable and well-run hotel in a super-convenient location. We will definitely be back on our next trip to Zürich.

Ideal for holidays and having somewhere to leave things and sleep. Don't expect spending time in the hotel, only basic necessities to then explore the city or country. Healthy breakfast buffet. Not very big double rooms, but enough to leave a couple of small suitcases.

Dear lrg45 Thank you for reviewing your stay - and for giving us 5 points on it. We are a 2-star-hotel and are not offering what 4- or 5-star-hotels are offering, but with our minimalistic style (adjusted to the architecture of the 1950-ies) we are happy to read that you found all the basics you needed and maybe a bit more. We are a good choice for guests who want to enjoy all the city has to offer within walking distance at a reasonable rate. Our room sizes vary by category, so for guests who look for larger rooms we also offer a choice. We would love to welcome you back on your next visit in the heart of the city of Zurich. Warm regards, Britta & your team at hotel marta
