“Convenient stay and well located”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

Hotel Continental Zurich is located within 10 minutes walking distance from the train station and close to the city centre. Tram station is next to the hotel.
The hotel is not stylish, but otherwise, my stay was very comfortable.
The staff is friendly, professional and polite. At the reception area you are always welcomed with a traditional apple juice and coffee can be made in the mornings.
There is a coffee shop in front of the hotel, however, the buffet breakfast offered at the hotel is very enjoyable and with a good variety of choices. I would recommend booking a room with breakfast included.
I stayed in a single room, which was well furnished and comfortable. The room was very clean and quite, and had all the comfort and ementies you would expect from a 4 star hotel.
Overall, my stay at the Continental was very good and I can easily recommend this hotel to others.

The Continental is within ten minutes walking distance from the train station but close to the centre of the city.

The staff where great and the restaurant fabulous. It was also great to meet so many Aussies in the hotel.

When next in Zurich this is where we will stay.

Good hotel not far from the centre. Good access by car. Underground parking, good bar, smoking place in the atrium. Nice staff. Rooms clean and beds comfortable.But the best value is excellent Chinese restaurant. As everything in Zurich, a little bit expensive.

Room Tip: Try to avoid rooms to street.

We stayed at this hotel for one night as a stopover for our European vacation. We chose it since it was close to the train station. We were given a handicapped accessible room which in and of itself is not bad but that's the best thing I can say. The air-conditioning on a rather warm day did not work. When I called the front desk the woman who answered came right up and confirmed that it was not working. Instead of offering to move us to another room or calling someone to fix the air conditioning, she ended up bringing a fan for us to use. This was not a satisfactory solution! The door to the bathroom would not stay closed. The shower curtain was broken and falling down while in use and the remote for the television did not work. I understand that Zurich is an expensive city but for what we paid for this hotel I expected more. Upon check out when I was asked if I found everything satisfactory. I responded with the list of problems we encountered. The response from the front desk person was "okay, thanks for staying with us". An apology or at least an attempt at some compensation would have been nice. Anyone visiting Zurich, my advice is to look elsewhere for a hotel.

Where can I buy one of these beds? Damn that was a great nights sleep! This hotel was fairly well located, nice and handy to the train station and Bahnhofstrasse shopping/dining strip. Although other hotels may well be closer, Hotel Continental is close enough to be handy yet avoids any night time street noise.

The entrance to the hotel from,outside is a little drab looking, it's really just a spinning glass door entrance in the side of an otherwise grey concrete monolith... But once inside it nicely resembles the traditional swiss chalet style look n feel... At least reception area does. The hallways could do with a makeover, perhaps new carpets etc but nothing wrong with our room itself. Shower pressure was good and water was hot! Both very important to me.

Had a most enjoyable buffet breakfast in the morning, which was included in our room rate and the selection was of the standard you would expect from a 5 star hotel.

Personally I think the price was rather steep in comparison to everywhere else we stayed on our European trip... However, having said that it was one of the cheapest prices we could find for accommodation in Zurich.... So it might be very well priced when compared to other Zurich hotels of a similar star rating. The staff were very warm and friendly not to mention helpful.

Zurich itself is quite expensive, and is definitely designed for the rich and probably famous. We felt totally put of place. The prices of accommodation, taxis, food, drinks were all well outside our budget and we struggled to find somewhere to eat that we could actually afford. I wasn't going to pay the equivalent of AUD$96 for a steak. Eventually we did find a nice Chinese restaurant (I wish I knew its name so I could review them because their food was very good), but for the most part almost very restaurant we reviewed the menu too we had to walk away from based purely on price. Even McDonald's wanted AUD$35 for 2 burger combos with small drinks and small fries! Ridiculous!
