“Great location, good value”
Reviewed 16 September 2013 via mobile

Great location at a reasonable price. Very happy with this hotel as a base for my weekend in Zurich. Clean room, coffee machine provided, stable wifi and a comfy bed. Only thing to mention for other travelers is that you do get a bit of noise from the various cafés and restaurants nearby, didn't bother me at all but if your a light sleeper it could be a problem.

The very centrally-located Statt hotel is different in many respects. It has no central lounge area and doesnt offer breakfast. The reception desk (and that's pretty much all you will get) is on the third floor, with the rooms scattered on the other floors. Buzz your way in or once registered, just use your access key to open the door, but make sure no one enters behind you. Facilities are nice, cosy, simple. I opened my windows on both sides of the room so I got a breeze. There is otherwise no airconditioning, and I found the fan a little too noisy. This is very important because the main drawback (perhaps the only drawback) to being here is the bar that is directly below the main hotel fascade that opens around 4 pm and closes after 2 am. Voices and other unwanted sounds bounce off the narrow walls of the adjoining buildings so you will hear them as you try to go to sleep.The helpful and friendly staff thoughtfully assigned me a room on the top floor away from the noise but I still heard it anyway. I wont go back but only because I am prepared to pay a little more for other places I've visited in town. Otherwise, if you can sleep through noise, this is a good choice.

Room Tip: If by "good room" you mean away from the noise, I'm afraid there aren't too many o...

We found the stattHotel exactly as we read in the reviews. Perfect location, helpful staff, good coffee machine all added to a great experiance.

Yes there was some noise from the bar downstairs, our solution was to go there and drink with the noisemakers!

We stayed two nights, saw a lovely city and staying in such a central loaction was just right.

I stayed at the StattHotel at the beginning of July 2013. The most convenient aspect of this hotel is its proximity to Zurich station being a 5 minute walk away and its central position in the city making everything very accessible. Don't expect anything else though. There is no view, tucked away as it is behind a busy cafe and in a small street that is difficult to locate for the first time. There is no lounge; no air-con --- even the fan supplied was defective and didn't work making it very uncomfortable; the sliding door in the shower only closed half-way; water didn't drain away in the shower base --- the angle to the drain hole is obviously not big enough for the water to flow away. At 220 euros a night it was extremely disappointing.
However, Zurich is probably the most expensive city in Europe with the least to see in terms of cultural attractions. I thought it was dirty and many of the streets smelt of urine. Dogs are allowed to defecate and urinate on the pavements and there is no effort on the part of owners to clean their pet's mess. It really is quite disgusting.
If you have to visit, spend the extra dosh and book a bigger hotel with all the amenities. It will make your stay a lot more pleasant.
I would NOT recommend this hotel to anyone.

A wonderful 15th century building revamped for the 21st century tourist. An intimate 16-room hotel with cosy touches in the ideal location in Zurich. Room was clean and cosy with an espresso machine added and friendly staff.

Although the room was located in a nice area on the water and within walking distance to the train station, the rooms are small, although clean, there were no personnel at the reception office although we checked in at 2:00 PM, the elevator was extremely small. From what I expect of a 4 star hotel it did not meet my expectations and, I have stayed at some 4 star hotels that were great. It could be this is the standard for a 4 star hotel in Zurich, I don't know.

Dear Mr. Mancino
Many thanks for your feedback. Kindly note that we are officially only rated as a one star Hotel because we don't provide any meals and because our reception opening hours are limited. Compared to other Swiss Hotels we do believe that we meet the standards of a three star Hotel. On Tripadvisor we are listed correctly. Could you inform us where you had this information from in order to make the necessary corrections?
Kind regards from Zurich, Martina

Ideally located in the old town of Zurich. The Reception is on the third floor and my husband did not notice the lift, so we hiked up our luggage on the narrow staircase. The staff was friendly and helpful during our stay. Our first room was on the forth floor facing the courtyard, clean and cosy with a small kitchenette . We decided to extend our stay by two days and was moved to the second floor just above the restaurant/bar at the front of the building, however their was little or no noise coming from it. Again clean however there was kitchenette. Complimentary cookies and Nespresso were in both rooms. Close to the railway,shops,restaurants and the lake. Really enjoyed our stay there in beautiful Zurich.
