Reviewed 9 May 2012

3 of us girls stayed here on a girls trip and what a nice hotel and staff. We were able to all stay in one room and the price of the room was unbeatable. Zurich is a very expensive city and was grateful to find a safe, nice, clean hotel to stay in for a reasonable price. The beds were comfortable and the room was spotless! It was a short ride to the hotel from the airport and the train drop off is right across the street. Not a bad train ride into the city center either. The staff was great with helping us figure out places to eat and how to get to the Therme Vals based on train stops. The Free Wi Fi was a nice change since in other places you had to pay for it. We did not do breakfast as we chose to eat out instead. The Coronado was very quiet and you didn't hear much traffic or people during the night. I would stay here again in a heartbeat if I come back to Zurich!!

Hotel has a lot going for it. 20 minute tram ride (#10) from airport drops you right off at front door. Across the street is a big park with many hiking trails. Single room ( #305) was good sized with a small terrace. Tram station (Milchbuck) serves 4 lines. In a quiet residential area so no drunks waking you up at three in the morning. Breakfast for CHF 15 is just average. Food store (Coop) just down the street. Paid 107 USD per night which I consider very good value. No complaints.

Room Tip: rooms ending in 05 have small terraces

We stayed only for 1 night but have to say this hotel has the smallest of rooms i have ever seen in my life. The staff was also not supportive to give us our rooms a bit early as we had reached around 12:30 in the afternoon.I was dissapointed cause they did not appear that they even planned to check or see if something can be done.
Breakfast was not included with our rooms which was additional 15 francs per person.
We had arrived from interlaken, so from zurich bahnof we took the direct tram no. 14(direction seebach) to milchbuck. You can also take a direct tram no.10 to zurich airport.
Right across the hotel is zurich university which has a beautiful park for strolling or walking.
For eating a pizzeria is just next to the hotel.We had our food from a nearby restaurant which had some doner kebabs & pizzas. Zurich is expensive for eating & anywhere from 15-28 francs is the cost of one meal.

Room Tip: All rooms are very very small.. so no point in giving tips!!

hotel near the tram station and rooms were clean and good size. Our room has a 40" lcd HD tv and it has lots of cable channels.

Didnt take the hotel breakfast and the staff were friendly.

Free wifi only valid for 12 hrs and you need to pay after that.

Thank you for your inputs regarding your recent stay at our property.

Referring to the cost of the W-LAN access, I am pleased telling you that we have FREE W-LAN for your whole stay! I do not know why you suppose that it will cost after 12 hours, but if you have been given a wrong information, I apologize for that.

It would be our pleasure to welcome you soon again and give you the joy of full FREE W-LAN!

Yours faithfully,

This hotel was conveniently located on the tram line from the airport into the city making it very easy to get around. The rooms were small and a bit cramped for two people but very clean. The location was quiet and the windows would open for ventilation as the rooms were very warm. The staff was helpful. Did not try the breakfast buffet as it was very expensive however there was free coffee and tea always available in the lobby. The only down side was the size of the bathroom. It was extremely tiny, the tub was extremely hard to get in and out of and there were no safety bars. A good place to stay if you are not looking for luxury but to save money.

Room Tip: All rooms appeared to be about the same, small size.

Zurich was recently voted as most expensive city in the world so it pays off to look for accommodation that will not ruin you financially. Coronado is the one - it is small, located half way between downtown and the airport with easy connection to both by tram. It will not make your honeymoon but for business trips or short sightseeing it's perfectly k.

Previous positive reviews were on target for convenience to the #10 Tram (not train) from the BRU airport, comfortable (bit small but manageable) and clean rooms, free wifi in the rooms (must reenter password when logging in each time), free coffee and tea in the lobby, and extremely helpful staff.

The four different tram lines that stop across the street are very diverse in destinations but extremely convenient to the hotel entrance. If you plan on touring the city via the tram within 24 hours of arrival, then I would suggest that you read the instructions at the tram ticket machine for the 8.20 CHF versus the 6.40 CHF one trip ticket before placing your coins [get the coins before walking out to the tram (not train) because the machines don't take bills] depot. The machines don't accept bills and you must date/time stamp the ticket just in case there is a transit cop checking for tickets and stamps (fine is steep for not having both).

If you want to run/jog/hike, the Univ of Zurich campus and the extensive wilderness area behind and up the hill can't be beat. If you want extensive mountain bike and moto bike trails, they are in abundant supply as well and designated in the same wilderness area.

The Saturday mass is nearby and scheduled to start at 5:30pm/17:30. If you don't want to walk the 7-8 blocks, then hop on the #10 tram and get off very close to the parish (St. Kathern). One of the breakoff Christian churches is right next door but I am not sure of their service schedule.

Grocery store (Coop) is 1/2 block away.

I highly recommend this hotel and will stay here again.

Only areas needing improvement centers on more extensive breakfast offerings if the price continues at the 15 CFH per person. The selection of restaurants in the immediate area is a bit weak and all very expensive when compared against the USA restaurant prices. Standard size pizzas (extensive number of Italian restaurants in the city) run between 17-16 CFH (currently 1.09 USD to 1 CHF).

Room Tip: Back of the hotel is very quiet and the upper floors have good views. If you keep the windows close...
