Nice staff, good room, bathroom a bit unmodernized but functional. Breakfast very pleasant; downside: only international newspaper=Int Herald Trib. The worst thing was the internet - constantly kicking me out (they have a crazy system with 7 different network SSIDs, it is just amateurish).

I only stayed in this one hotel in Zurich, but it is a very good choice. Everything in that city is Expensive, so for the value I think this was a fair deal. Nice old building, just on the edge of old-town, and really pretty rooms. Staff were friendly but reserved, I speak German so cannot tell how it would be for others who do not. Amenities were fine. I would recommend without hesitation!

There are a number of over-the-top hotels in Zurich but if you are looking for an elegant but reasonably priced hotel, this is it. We stayed here a second time recently and it's as nice as ever.
It's located within walking distance of the Bahnhofstrasse just across the river in a quiet residential area. It's a small hotel with relatively spacious rooms and decent bathrooms.The lovely dining room offers a nice breakfast. It is closed for lunch but it also serves top notch food at dinner.
The string that ties it all together is the service provided by the staff. The women at the front desk could not be more pleasant and will go out of their way to help you.
We hope to have another opportunity to visit Zurich and will definitely stay here.

We were at this hotel with a small group. It reminded me of staying in someone's lovely home. Very comfortable. Decor is traditional. Our room faced the garden, and was very quiet. We happened to be in Zurich during a spell of hot weather. There is no air conditioning; we opened the windows, and, despite the lack of screens, it was just fine. The beds were good, and the rooms were decorated with charming fabrics. The bathroom was on the small side, but quite sufficient. Although this is an older hotel, there was no problem at all with hot water or water pressure. The breakfast was a small buffet, but was good. They could make fried or scrambled eggs, but there was an extra charge for that. Tea and pastries are served in the parlor in the afternoon---very nice! It was an easy walk to the Kunsthaus and Old Town. We could definitely recommend this hotel, and we would stay there again.

We stayed at the charming Hotel Florhof over New Year and really enjoyed our time there. Despite belonging to the association of "Romantik" hotels, this quaint hotel does not feel like a chain hotel at all.
Hotel Florhof is located within easy walking distance from Zurich's old town in a historic building. It is an ideal home base if you want to explore the central parts of town on foot.
The rooms are reasonably sized, flawlessly clean, and nicely decorated while still keeping it simple. Despite the central location, the hotel is very quiet in the evenings and nights.
The staff was always friendly and helpful. If you arrive by car you have to turn in your car keys at the reception due to the hotel's funky parking arrangements that might require the hotel staff to move your car during the day. Staff handled this very professionally, though it can be a minor hassle when you forgot something in the car, for example.
The excellent breakfast buffet offers an impressive selection of breads, cheeses, meats, cereals, etc. while hot breakfast options can be ordered a la carte.
The Florhof's price/value ratio is probably on par with the city of Zurich in general: decent value, but by no means cheap.
If you are looking for a charming small hotel in a great location you will not be disappointed with the Hotel Florhof.

We stayed here for 5 days during late June and had a delightful experience. Very clean and comfortable with excellent multi-lingual staff and ready access to tram service to anywhere in town. Parking is a bit of a problem; fortunately we didn't have a car. Breakfast and dinner are both outstanding, either indoors or out in the garden. Only complaint is no a/c; it was about 90F and hard to cool the room at night. The mostly classical soundtrack is provided by the next-door music school, which sent daily flute, piano, or strings rehearsals wafting through our open windows.

The Florhoff is full of character and charm and should probably be rated as a boutique hotel. The food in the restaurant is outstanding . Given that the restaurant is old and its original character is intact it does mean that the rooms and particularly the bathrooms are small. However it is great value particularly given its central location.

Room Tip: ask for more pillows
