Dear MalissaSantana

Thank you very much for having had the privilege to be your host and for your comments on Tripadvisor.

We are thankfully aware of our privilege of being located in the beautiful historic city center of Zurich. Most places of interest are within walking distance like the main railroad station, cultural sites, restaurants, the river Limmat and the Lake of Zurich. It is a town that knows how to keep it’s many secrets.

Thank you once more for your evaluation. It is essential for us in that it enables us to continue enhancing our service quality. We hope to see you again soon and wish you a good time.

With best regards from Zurich
The Hotel Alexander Team

It's a bit like a premier inn or travel lodge (uk hotels), with little to offer other than rooms and breakfast room. However the place is clean and tidy, and actually a nice little hotel in a really convenient location. I've been staying here for work regularly for the last few months and going to stay so longer still. They've been accommodating about room choices etc.

Hotel has free wifi, which can be fast enough to stream but not all the time. you have to get a free 24hr username and password from reception. a little annoying, but you just ask every day.

It's on a main street which can be noisy but the rooms seem very tranquil when in them. I've never had any issues with noise, but others I know had on front facing rooms. higher you go the better.

If I was coming to zurich personally now, i'd come here.

Room Tip: high room, rear or side facing

We stayed at hotel Alexander for one night, but we'd love to spend longer time there. A perfect place to recharge our batteries!
It's located in the middle of everything: the old town, by the river, in a lively restaurant- and shopping street, a 5-10 minutes walk from the train station. It's amazingly quiet considering it's location.
The bed was comfortable and large (we had a queen bed). The breakfast room is small, but inviting, with good food.
We will definitely come back to Hotel Alexander out next visit to
Zurich.
Thank you!

The hotel was located in the heart of the city, which was a huge plus, the free high speed internet was again no problem. I really liked the stay there. The elevator was quite small, but the building is not that high, so there stairs are a good option too.

This hotel is just right for a short stay in Zurich. Location is great, in the picturesque Old Town and within walking distance of a lot of sights, restaurants, and shops. Tram stop just a few steps away. Clean, newly renovated rooms with AC. Free wifi and good quality breakfast included in the rates. The lady at the reception desk was very helpful and patient with all of my questions. My only gripe was the quality of the towels, jarringly out of sync with everything else the hotel offered.

Will definitely stay here again if in Zurich for only 1-2 nights.

We were staying in the dependance building. Small rooms but clean bed and clean shower.
Breakfast in the main building, but its not even a 2 minute walk. Good breakfast. Friendly staff.
Wifi code only lasts 24hrs so you need to get a new pass at the front desk.

Location is perfect. Lots to see and so many restaurants in walking distance.

Dependance building is next to the redlight district, in the evenings you notice. But its not troublesome
The parking arrangent was very confusing

We are very pleased that you have chosen us to be your host. We are more than pleased to see that you have enjoyed your stay with us. In fact, customer satisfaction is our ultimate ambition.

Concerning the parking: It is very unfortunate that you experienced it as confusing. As the space is very limited in the centre of Zurich we can’t offer anything else. We hope that this issue was not too much trouble for you.
The WLAN codes can also be requested by calling the reception at any given time.

We wish you a very pleasant day and hope to see you here again.
