We recently stayed in Switzerland for ten days. Rather than pushing on to our final destination after an 8 hour overnight flight we decided to stay overnight in Zurich. On our way out we stayed again since we had an early flight out.

We chose hotel montana due to it's convenient location, close to the train station and the old city. We were glad we did. The hotel is very clean, the staff are very polite and helpful. Our room had a king size bed with a cot for our son. It was a tight fit what with three full size suitcases but that is what you get for trying to fit three people in a two person room. The room itself was clean, modern and the bed was very comfortable. There is no air-conditioning, but this is Europe several establishments do not have air-conditioning including Zurich airport. Both nights we stayed there it was 28 celcius in Zurich. We opened the windows lowered the blind and slept well. The Hotel has fans if you need them. Was there noise? Yes, but you get noise when you open the window in a busy city.

The breakfast which was included in our stay was very good. There was a selection of cheeses, meats, bacon, eggs, fantastic croissants, coffee tea etc.

We were very happy with our stays at Hotel Montana and would gladly stay there again.

The hotel is ideally located if you intend to travel and/ or just take a stopover in Zurich - it is 5-minute walk from the railway station. Interestingly decorated halls, the room is not big but enough and clean.

Decent breakfast in the charming hotel's restaurant hall.

There could be certain problems when it is hot - as you can't sleep well with the window open due to the street noise, and it's suffocating with the windows closed, so air condition would be nice to get.

And last but not the least - good value for money in Switzerland!

Room Tip: If possible, try to ask for a room that does not face the street.

This hotel is centrally located and perfect if arriving in the city by train, as it's just around the corner. A couple of bars close by, but only a 5 minute stroll and your right in the thick of it. The room we had 521 was very spacious with a refurbished bathroom which was excellent. Even had BBC & ITV channels of the tv.
We opted for B&B and the breakfasts were very good, served in the lovely restaurant. Nice for b'fast but not sure about it as an evening dining area! Staff very friendly and helpful. I had noticed some reviews just before we visited about it being very hot as no air-con. The temperature's were ok when we visited Zurich and the room & corridor's were very warm, so I can imagine during hot spells it could become quite uncomfortable. We enjoyed our stay here and would consider again(outwith very hot weather)and it was priced very well given it's very central location

Room Tip: Room 512 was ace

The Staff was friendly, the breakfast was good and the room is great as well. Really central and close to the city center and shopping. The only annoying thing was the slow elevator, since there was only one for the entire hotel.

I have just left Zurich after a 6 night stay in the Hotel Montana. I have no complaints, yes there was no air conditioning but I knew that before I booked and yes the rooms are on the smallish side but as I was out seeing the sights and not living in my room that wasn't an issue. The staff are very friendly and welcoming and the hotel was always spotlessly clean. The breakfast was delicious and a great start to each day. The location is fantastic and a 5 minute walk to the train station or a 2 minute walk to the bus depot where all sightseeing tours leave from. If I am ever lucky enough to return to Zurich again I wouldn't look past this hotel.
