The Hotel Alden is in a quieter, more residential part of Zurich, but is still within walking distance of the main attractions & business district. It is significantly cheaper than its main rivals, and makes for a pleasing alternative to the standard chain hotels. It falls just short of the five star rating though, in my view.
The rooms are all laid out like a suite with separate lounge, bedroom and bathroom, and are nothing short of huge! The period furniture is very tasteful, and the attention to detail really makes a difference. They offer a free fruit platter, for example, and all soft drinks and snacks in the mini-bar are complimentary, which is very refreshing. Likewise, the service was attentive, and the food was of a decent standard.
The main points against this hotel would have to be that the rooms are a little noisy, despite there only being three suites on each floor. Also, some of the furniture felt cheap - the jacuzzi bath came apart while I was in it! Plus, the room service menu was quite limited and a little overpriced.
Overall, an excellent hotel, but perhaps in need of a little tweaking before it can truly claim the five star rating. Having said that, the Alden is still the best place I have stayed in Zurich so far!
