Stayed for three days, the hotel is very well situated and the staff is really nice. on the day of the check in we were offered water and small chocolates in the room. The breakfast is fine for a 3 star hotel. Booked last minute it was a bit pricey but so is all of Zurich!

My wife and I stayed three nights at the Alexander and found the staff very helpful and accomodating, the location ideal, and the room comfortable though compact. The breakfasts were part of the room charge and had a nice selection of meal choices. Given that Zurich is quite expensive the breakfasts add real value to staying there. If there are...

Hotel was selected for location near Hirschenplatz and to have a cobblestone alley ambiance. Stayed in room 309 which overlooked a courtyard garden. Rooms are very clean and nicely appointed contemporary designs although not very large. Air circulation was by window only so if traveling during hot periods, it may get quite warm. Breakfast was suitable for a good start...

The location is Great! You can just step out of the hotel and start walking down Niederdorfstrasse. Great pasta place right next door. Rooms were a little bit small. The bathroom has a frosted glass door. A little bit inconvenient when you share with 2 other people.

Dear Luciana C., Thank you for your very affirmative comment. You are right, our rooms, specially if you share with 2 other people, are a little bit cosy. We have tried to combine modernity with usefulness. If you feel more comfortable with a regular bathroom door – we recommend our Alexander Guesthouse. If there is anything what we can do...

This is a lovely little hotel, with a clean modern feel located on a lovely Street full of shops and restaurants. It's a short walk from the station and gives for a lovely stroll down the river to the main lake. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. Great place to stay

Not just only Zurich's well-known landmarks but also the business quarters with the banks and shops, the high-end shopping district «Bahnhofstrasse», the university quarters, amongst them the ETH «Federal Institute of Technology», the car-free lake- and riverside promenades and many Cafés, bars and restaurants.The Hotel Alexander, renovated in February 2012, has more than 41 lavishly appointed and well tended non smoking rooms.
