“Well located, comfortable hotel”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

This hotel is very convenient if you are travelling by train as it is just a few minutes walk from the main railway station. It is also only a slightly longer walk into the old town and to Bahnhofstrasse for shopping. The only minor downside is that the area immediately around the hotel is rather lacking in character.

Our standard room was not large, but had lovely bed linen and the bathroom was beautifully finished with high quality fittings and a large shower. We had requested a quiet room, and were given one at the back of the hotel overlooking an internal courtyard which was indeed very quiet. And it had windows that opened! The free wifi worked well.

The breakfast buffet was one of the best I have experienced. An excellent range of all the usual components of a Swiss breakfast, including wonderful breads, as well as being able to press your own fresh orange juice, collect honey from honeycomb, and home-made jam. The kitchen would also prepare egg dishes to order. As we had a room rate that included breakfast, this made the hotel very good value for the price, considering that this is Zurich!

The hotel also has some charming touches in keeping with the MGallery brand; the Swiss chalet decor, the apples and fresh apple juice provided in the lobby, large bottle of sparkling water in the room, and Swiss chocolates delivered to the room each evening.

Service at check in and out was friendly and efficient. Staff were happy to provide restaurant recommendations. All in all we had a very pleasant stay and would come back.

Grüezi Jenny Y,

We take you for granted and look forward to your next visit. Your review is a treat for my team and all future guests. Thank you so much for it.
Hardly anything I could add. Maybe only the fact that we are easily reachable from the airport as well - board a train and two stops later you are at Zürich Central.
Kind regards,

Positives
- Location - 5 mins from the Zurich Hbf, if you have lot of luggage take a Tram its one stop but you avoid climbing a slope. Walking distance to all hot spots, Bahnofstrasse for Shopping and Old town for eating. All the excursions (Mount Titlis etc) bus stops are also 5 mins away.

- Service - Free sparkling water, Apple juice and Apples in the lobby. Good and efficient room service

- Rooms - Spacious with working Air Conditioner for April.

- TV - I like seeing a bit of TV on my holidays and loved the fact that they had over 100 channels and quite a few English ones! Hurray!

I cant think of any negatives, but there is 5 Francs Swiss Tax per night which I wasnt aware of.

Room Tip: Because the Hotel is on a slope, we stayed on the 4th floor but I could have jumped out of the windo...

The MGallery Collection Continental is a slightly made over Sofitel hotel near the main railway station in Zurich. Considering it is a two stop ride on the train from the airport to the trainstation it means the hotel has an excellent location. The rooms are modern and wellfurbished, although they could have been slightly larger. Cleanliness is good (This is Switzerland after all...) and the service is friendly and efficient. The breakfast is very good with a manual juice press for that extra fresh orange juice.

Dear Ptm27 ,

True, this hotel used to be a Sofitel but was re-branded to MGallery with the launch of this fantastic individual brand. In any case it stays an Accor property.
Thank you for your kind review.
We offer rooms in four different room categories. Try one of our spacious Superior Rooms for your next stay.

We found this hotel very good value for the price we paid ( Switzerland not being the cheapest place to visit ) The service was excellent, the room had complimentary carbonated water, chocolate ( yum! ) and in the lobby apples and apple juice, quite a lot of freebies which is always a bonus.
Our room was not huge but adequate, very clean, we had the use of bathrobes and slippers and had THE best nights sleep of any hotel we have EVER been to. The pillows and mattress were sooooo comfortable it was like sleeping on a cloud, extremely comfortable.
The hotel is well located, everything was within easy walking distance, especially the train station which is handy. It is not far from the old part of town which was very convenient in the evening to get better value for money restaurants and not have to fork out for taxi's every night.
If you go out of the Hotel entrance and turn left, a few minutes walk down the road on the left is a lovely little bakery that bakes beautiful pastries, bread and yummy breakfast treats if you want a cheaper breakfast or like us didn't have it included with the hotel room rate.
We would definately return to the Hotel Continental if we ever have the chance to visit Zurich again.

If you're looking for a hotel that places a high quality on good beds and sheets, look no further than the Hotel Continental Zurich. Unlike other hotels in Zurich, this one has a comfortable climate control setting, allowing guests to actually reach their personal comfort setting. Many other hotels I've stayed at were either too hot or too cold, which is ridiculous, considering the money we spend on rooms in this city. Located two blocks from the main train station, everything you need is accessible from this hotel. As I mentioned earlier, if you desire a good location AND a good sleep, you will be pleased by choosing this hotel. Finally, the staff was very courteous, adding the proverbial cherry on the top. Good luck and enjoy a beautiful, fine city!!
