Hotel Wellenberg
Ranked #55 of 137 Hotels in Zurich
Reviewed 3 June 2014

Luckily we were only staying overnight, but (in our opinion) Room 301 was not the standard we expected in a 4-star hotel. The bathroom - with shower - was tiny and the room itself 'tired'. The paintwork could have done with touching up in places, and there were burn marks on some surfaces.
The hotel's in a good situation in the Old Town, and the service is excellent, but we won't be going back.

Stayed in this hotel during a conference visit to Zurich. All hotels in Zurich seem overpriced and this is no exception. The location, however, is excellent for anyone who enjoys a lively downtown scene, with lots of restaurants, bars, and shops nearby -- but with no street noise audible in the rooms. Breakfast (included in the room charge) is fantastic. It was quite warm and I asked about air conditioning, but was told that "no hotels in the Old Town are permitted to have air-conditioning." For this reason I was surprised to see that one reviewer mentions having had air conditioning at teh Wellenberg.

Have used this hotel quite a few times, and have been very satisfied. The location is great in the old part of town, close to the restaurants and bars, close to Main Central Station and the city center. Rooms are good, modern and clean - and staff are very friendly.

It is very close to the main train station ( 10 minute walk) . Good breakfast, Wi-Fi was good and the staff was very helpful. Glad we had A/C did not really need it but we got to keep the windows closed which kept the street noise down. In fact, we never hear it. Wellenberg has a refrig, safe and alot of closet space. Room could have used a carpet cleaning and a little update. Alot of restaurants within a short walk from the hotel. I would stay here again.

I had a wonderful weekend stay at the Wellenberg. It is located in the "good" end of the old Town Walking street. Good being further down towards the lake. In my book the restaurants and even some of the smallish hotels at the begining of the Walking street are a bit touristy and boring. The wellenburg is on a small Square so it gets much more light. And it has 2 lifts so no conking up and down multiple flts of stairs. Updated rooms with all the little things that makes for a nice stay. Give it a try...you wont be disappointed.

Room Tip: 508 was good and had a funky view over the rooftops up to the University

A very comfortable and well-equipped hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful, breakfasts very good. Room clean and comfortable. It is a short walk down to the river and lake, or uphill to the Kunsthaus. The railway station is within walkable distance if you only have cabin luggage. Lots of cobbled streets and atmosphere. Area perhaps more like Prague, architecturally, than Geneva, or Montreux.

Room Tip: If you overlook the square outside there is a possibility of disturbance from people going home in t...

Best for location and cleanliness as well as free Wifi. The room was very comfortable. Lots of things to do within walking distance and trams are close by for visiting further afield. Only downside was that the room was very hot and opening windows allowed noisy party-goers to disturb my sleep
