Lovely hotel in very good location. Easy tram ride from rail station. Staff were extremely helpful, even having our room available on arrival at 8am. This was very much appreciated after a very long trip from New Zealand. Reception offered very helpful information on what to do and see in our one day here. Breakfast was very nice and plentiful. Would definitely recommend

I would recommend this hotel for business or pleasure. The location is unbeatable, very close to city centre only a couple of tram stops from the Zurich train station. And the hotel is right there at the Kronenstrass tram stop. The staff was very friendly and the rooms quite large and spacious. The beds were adequate but nothing special. I'm usually more an admirer of historic hotels, but I came away overall very pleased with my stay here.

I've stayed at the Krone for over a year now and I've always been very well looked after. The location is great and the atmosphere is pretty informal. The breakfasts are very good. If you want to avoid the anonymity of Hiltons or Sheratons, it's a great hotel.

Room Tip: Town house rooms or 5th floor are best.

Good location, close to the centre of Zürich, and directly opposite the tram stop.
Very reasonable price for a single business room, and the breakfast was very good as always.
I can definitely recommend the restaurant, the food is delicious and the service is excellent.
I had a room at the back this time, and slept soundly, I do know that on previous occasions, the tram has woken me up when I had a room at the front of the hotel.
Free wifi and access to English TV channels was an added extra.

Room Tip: Try to get a room at the back of the hotel which is quieter.

Good location, but the single occupancy room was tiny. Felt more like a Japanese pod hotel!

Hotel is also noisy because of the tram stop outside. I got woken up at 530am, then the efficient trams seemed to come past every 5 minutes.

Staff were good and helpful. Breakfast buffet could do with more fresh fruit for a healthy option.
