“Exclusivity in the heart of Zurich”
Reviewed 5 January 2009

Hotel handles you with the same exclusivity and attention to detail typically reserved for the private banking industry made famous by Zurich; an extremely high level of professionalism, courtesy, and respect for one's privacy expected from top-tier boutique properties does not disappoint here.

Service was exceptional and the availability of the staff leaves nothing to be desired.

Further acknowledgment for the seemingly endless amount of COMPLIMENTARY amenities offered where other hotels levy surcharges for such simple services to enhance comfort.

A short lakeside walk to the heart of Zurich's charming old town.

Will not hesitate to return next time I travel to, or through Zurich. Recommend 100%.

Simply stated, not just suitable for CEO's and Captains of Industry, but for artists and lovers alike.

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!

Our visit to hotel Alden was perfect. We were greeted with a glass of champagne and a delicious snack. Our suite far exceeded our expectations. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Breakfast (included in the price of your stay) was fresh and offered many choices. It's located in a quiet residential area of Zurich, close to the lake. Make sure you rent bikes (for free) outside the Opera House and explore the lakeside.
This hotel is worth every penny/franc!!

This hotel takes the word Boutique to a new level. It is modern luxury with a sophisticated flair containing every detail to please the guest. From elegant -service oriented staff who knows you by name and preference -to a teddy bear for your child. We had Suite number 3D it was like having your own apartment in Zurich, position bed, plasma TV with internet, music in the Roman bathroom suite (tuned in to chic music), automatic toilet , huge shower with set temperature, Bulgari soaps, loofah and towel warmer. The decoration, modern with antiques and walls like art gallery with modern paintings and antique portraits. The ceiling was a work of art, probably original mouldings from the building. Details like a bowl full of cherries, chocolates, orquides. We love the Alden.The food was incredible! It is 5 min walking distance away from the action , but is worth it.
