It is a great hotel with excellent location! It is just right next to the main train station.

Breakfast is great and people there are nice.

I will stay this hotel again if I visit Zurich again for sure.

Dear Alexalex2000.

Thank you very much for your positive feedback. The greatest praise in Zurich after the quality of service is a good price-value-ratio. Zurich, with its high quality of living, is not the cheapest city in Europe and I'm proud of my team that we were able convince you with our genuine service, the location and the price. I wish you all the best.

Kind regards
Kurt Wodiczka

Have just returned from a wonderful 2 centre stay in Zurich and Zermatt. The Walhalla hotel lived up to the excellent reviews. A real gem, nicely decorated, very clean and staff deserve the excellent feedback. It is extremely well situated and you can't get lost if travelling on your own. Our double room was not huge but plenty big enough for us and it was great to have a kettle and a nice selection of tea/coffee. Buffet breakfast was also excellent. The receptionist ( male) was extremely helpful when we arrived and we were able to check in late morning . We will definitely recommend and would stay here again without question,

Room Tip: was rather noisy as opposite a coach park but really not a problem for us

Dear LizLambourn.

It was a real pleasure reading your review, knowing that it is about the Walhalla Hotel in Zurich. Thank you very much for your excellent feedback. I'm very happy that you enjoyed the breakfast, because we changed a lot in the past. Hot items like scrambled and fried eggs with bacon were added and a good selection of Swiss cheese. It is the perfect motivation for all of us and we will continue this road. I wish you all the best and hope to welcome you again at the Walhalla Hotel.

Kind regards

Well, we did not expect too much from this hotel. Not because of any reviews, but simply because it's in Switzerland (money-service-value-balance is not always that convenient). Therefore much room for positive surprises.

Location: A minute from the main train station in Zurich - great.
Noise: Interestingly enough - quiet.
Room: Modern, clean, even with a electric kettle with tea/coffe (much appreciated).
Service: Staff is friendly and helpful.
Breakfast: Was included, not too fancy but good.
Price: In Swiss terms - cheap.
Value: Excellent

Recommandable for everybody who want's to stay in the Center of Zurich for a night or two.

We've stayed to this hotel 3 years ago in January for 4 nights and we chose it among other 3 star hotels by its name! Of course we noticed that it had large rooms with reasonable prices and was near the train station. When we got there we saw that it location was perfect! Near tram station, restaurants,Bahnhofstrasse and the National Museum. Our room was spacious with view to the lake, very clean and quiet. Staff helpful, breakfast as it should be, overall a nice stay. Definately recommend it!

Good hotel located near the main station (although on the side away from the city). Staff were generally friendly,

Pros
- good sized rooms
- very clean rooms with a good layout
- incl breakfast - had a good spread

The tablet is a bit of a novelty, but lagged alot which made surfing pretty difficult.

Cons
- located near the station, but away from the city side.

Important stuff
- free fast internet - need to provide mobile number for code. Can be used across multiple devices
- individualised toiletries
- good clean shower, good water pressure and plenty of hot water
- Would I stay here again? Yes

Dear Paul N.

Thank you for your detailed feedback. I will forward your comments to my housekeeping department. They really do an outstanding job. Yes, we are the first hotel in Zurich and maybe even in Switzerland that equipped all double and comfort rooms with tablet PCs. I apologize that the connection was to slow in your room. On Thursday we get a much faster Wifi connection from a different provider. This should help even if we have very few comments about slow Wifi. Success is never final.

I wish you all the best and hope to welcome you again.
Kind regards

Very modern hotel with really nice bathrooms and very close to the train station you can easily walk. Right above a starbucks but that was not needed as breakfast was impressive especially the latte/espresso machine. Would definitely recommend to those who are on a semi budget but still want the comforts of a 3 star in a great location.

*****Don't bother exchanging euros for francs as most places accept euros and give you change in swiss francs.

Water fountains are everywhere in the city so buy a bottle of water once and then refill as Evain etc are extremely expensive.

Dear manOFmanhatten.

Thank you very much for sharing your feedback here on Tripadvisor. Especially the part about our breakfast buffet I liked very much. I already mentioned it in prior comments that we changed a lot in the last few months and it seems we were successful. We are still missing some decoration, but I'm pretty sure we get it in the next few weeks. I wish you all the best and hope to welcome you again at our beautiful hotel.

Kind regards

Sitting here having a wonderful breakfast at the Walhalla. Great location near train and bus station. Room is small but fine for relaxing after a day of site seeing. Small balcony was a treat. Starbucks is on ground level and lots of restaurants are nearby.
