“located in the city centre, close to tram stop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

The Hotel is small modern, very well located. It is clean, the service is good. The tram stops across the street and it is convenient to reach the lake, the station or the airport (40 min). Rooms are not very big but comfortable.

Not a convenience location (not so close to walk to the centre) and no AC. We were there in the end of June and it was super hot, had to open the windows but it's by the road so it's quite noisy.

Very hard pillow, actually my partner got headache because of that. The so called free wifi was only for 1 device a room.

Bathroom was tiny. I'm not big and still found the shower cabin was super small. Plus the rubber between the shower cabin doors were falling apart.

4 star boutique hotel? Really don't think so. Will never go back to this place.

Dear Nikki_ID,

Thank you for your feedback.

We belong to the hotels in Zurich which are under preservation and are therefore not allowed to install an air conditioning system. But we are working on a solution to keep the hotel cool in summer.

We have different categories in the Leonardo Boutique Hotel Rigihof. It would be a pleasure to assist you in taking your booking to find the perfect category for you.

Of course we will double check the showers to ensure the cabin doors are fully functional.

The hotel is located next to the tram station and main street. I stayed in a single room and it was a size of a shoe box with everything crammed inside that would qualify the hotel as a 4 star. The staff was kind and professional and I enjoyed my stay there, but I would never pay the full price for the room. It is simply too small!

It is just boutique in name. They have three stars standard at best. With tiny bathrooms. Named boutique to cheat you more out of your money. Avoid if possible. Even the location is not practical if you are a tourist. And plus that they told us one price during check in and when we checked out it was different price: 140 CHF more. Never again.

Nice hotel, but if you will be there and its summer, be prepared cause there is no aircon... Other than that we enjoyed our stay there... Welcome refreshments and all kinds of vanity kits plus a high powered hairdryer are really great additions to this hotel. You can even buy day pass for the public transport at the reception! Overall, it was lovely.

We chose this property due to it's proximity to the Unispital Zürich. That and the nice staff were about all I can say for the positive side. The original room given to us on the quiet side, next to a construction site, school and church bell tower did not quite meet amnesty international's approval, I'm sure...TINY! We upgraded to a so-called suite that was a bit bigger, but due to it's location (quietside), was exposed to the sun from morning 'till evening! The old windows offered no insulation whatsoever and temp. in room must have been around 40-42 degrees C!!! We stayed there (had to!) for 11 nights! While pay checking the final bill we noted that we were charged 3(!!!) different nightly rates during our stay. Still waiting for contact from said hotel regarding that!

Dear firdos k

Thank you for your feedback regarding your stay with us.

We appologize that your room was not ready by 3pm, which is our check in time. This should have been guaranteed.

We belong to the hotels in Zurich which are under preservation order and are therefore not allowed to install an air conditioning system – therefore we do not mention an air condition in the description of the hotel. But I assure you we are currently working on a solution to keep the hotel cool in summer.

The ringing of the church bells is something very traditional about Zurich and Switzerland and we cannot influence it unfortunately.

we hope we have the pleasure to welcome you back.
