“Short but pleasant stay!”
Reviewed 26 April 2014 via mobile

We stayed at Hotel Wellenberg for one night at the conclusion of our 8 night trip to Italy and Switzerland. All in my party of four found the hotel pleasant, clean and comfortable...which is to say in keeping with Swiss standards! Our room was spacious, with a wall of windows overlooking a small square. There were numerous shops and restaurants within steps of the lobby, but unfortunately, Zurich seemed to close down just as we arrived. The waterfront was a block or so away, and the entire area surrounding the hotel was was walkable. We enjoyed the full breakfast buffet, which included many hot and cold selections. Checkout was quick and easy.

The only slight issue was due to our arrival via car. It is not possible to drive directly to the hotel, so I had to drop off my wife and our other travel mates a few blocks away. We felt harried as the road had a tram line, and we didn't want to cause a traffic jam. Ultimately, no big deal, but travelers should be ready for it! Also, there was no parking available through the hotel. I found a public lot a few blocks away in what surely was an underground bomb shelter...complete with blast doors!!

Hotel Wellenberg is an excellent choice for staying in Zurich. I wish we had more time to enjoy it!

The hotel is in a great location, very central. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was good with plenty to choice from.
My only complaint would be that they offer tea and coffee facilities in the room but they gave us one tea bag, no coffee and no milk. We did ask if we could have some but we never got any.
We don't think we got a deluxe room as booked the room was quite small and overlooked someone's balcony.

We stayed at this hotel on Christmas eve. The hotel is located in a quite central square, just a few minutes walk from the main railway station and just 50 meters from the river banks. Our room was huge with a small window which gave us a partial view of the surroundings. The room was in an attic, something that made it even more beautiful. The furniture were great and everything was very clean and stylish. The staff was very friendly and they tried to give us anything we wanted with a smile.The breakfast was quite good, we didnt have a problem, had almost everything one need to have for breakfast. The price was quite good if you consider the time(Christmas eve), the name of the hotel and the location.The hotel as i said above, is located in front of a big square with shops, cafe, food stores and bars. Everything was very nice, we had a great time and we are looking forward to visit it again.

As with most hotels, the rooms never look quite as good as the pictures (that were likely taken when the paint was still wet!), but the Wellenberg has a terrific location and is clean, decently appointed, has a full breakfast, free WiFi and a terrific staff. It's a decent value for the price in Zurich and I would stay there again.

Randomly picked for its location, ti served its purpose very well. It strength is its staff at the reception particularly Kathrin and Humma. Some of the rooms are a little tired but the basics are properly catered for, clean towels, soap, toiletries. Breakfast is adequate in variety and plentiful in quantity and the coffee machine works well. The location is far enough without being too far from the centre which makes for a really nice walk into town. Worth considering for its location and the helpful staff. Rooms are being upgraded and need to be so. Also lower floor rooms tend to be a little noisy on a Friday night but that will apply to all hotels in the area. A nice touch is the plentiful supply of apples at the entrance and the water fountain. Taxis do indeed come straight to the front door.

Room Tip: ask for the newly refurbished rooms on the fourth floor. ask for room on high floor as it can get n...
