“Cheap, Clean, Close, Comfy and little Cow Crazy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 January 2014

This is not a high class hotel but it has loads of charm and all the conveniences you might need. There is a very pervasive cow theme about the place with cow themed art, lots of quirky cow stuff and even a garden off one of the levels.

Breakfast was good and the restaurant area, like the rest of the hotel, has a very relaxed atmosphere. If you are a tourist like me, you might want to take a photograph of the triangular column painted as a Toblerone bar, but do not forget to take a couple more of the others: Toblertwo and Toblerthree.

With a tram stop out front, you are only one stop away from the city centre, and catching a tram in the other direction will get you to the airport.

This was a fun place to stay, and for the price and location, was very good value.

My husband and I have stayed here for 2 nights in Nov 13, The hotel is easy accessible to central, shopping district, old town and train station. We can take the tram easily at the tram stop infront and beside of the hotel .The room size and the breakfast is average, Overall we have a good stay in Zurich.

I chose Leoneck Hotel because of its location (proximity to ETH and the train station) and its price (one of the lowest out of the hotels in the city center). The room itself was nothing fancy. A bit small and with a dated looking closet. I also thought it smelled a bit stale. Nevertheless, those are not big problems.

What I disliked the most was finding about 4 very long strands of hair (easily longer than 30cm) in several, highly visible places in the bathroom. I cannot believe someone could have overlooked them there. One was in the bathtub, one on the floor, one on the wall near the toilet. The 4th one amazed me the most. It was right on the toilet flush button.

Apart from this the hotel stay was ok. The room was warm and the Internet worked fine. The TV had many channels you could watch though not all that were listed in the booklet given to you.

We were in Zurich for one night. The hotel Leoneck was a good stay with a quiet room. The shower was small but adequate. The front desk personnel were very nice and efficient. They let us store our bags when we got there early.

If you are coming from the train station, take tram 6 or 10 and save yourself an unpleasant walk uphill with your luggage! The hotel is right next to the tram so that makes this hotel very convenient for seeing the city.

1 # 10 tram to and from the station - don't bother with a cab or walking uphill to get to the hotel
2 # 10 tram direct to the airport - don't mess around getting to the station, finding the train, dragging your bags around........get straight on the tram outside the door and you'll be at the airport in about half an hour
3 Best lighting of any hotel we've stayed in over a five week trip, I get tired of dim bedside and wall lighting, trying to see through the gloom. Well done Leonek.
4 Staff members are pleasant and efficient
5 The room was quite hot but we opened the window overnight and it was fine, you do hear the trams if the window is open but it's on quite a busy road so that's to be expected. We had a room at the side of the hotel with a small terrace outside. The room was clean, tidy, bathroom was adequate, water hot.
5 Price is a bit expensive but I guess it's Zurich which is not known for being cheap.
6 Wifi excellent, thank you for that.

Negative comment has to be about the Crazy Cow restaurant which we only used for breakfast. It smelled very stale, very old cooking odours, needed windows opening and alot of fresh air, not pleasant to walk into. The young woman hostess was pleasant but casual, sitting down talking to two men both days we were there. Breakfast was adequate and included in our tariff. I wonder if it is run separately from the hotel because the atmosphere is 180 degrees different from the professional service in the hotel reception area.

Dear client

We are glad that you had a pleasant stay with us. You are right, that the Crazy Cow does not belong to the hotel - it is rent out. We from the hotelside try our best to get a standard as in the hotel.
I hope you returned well back home.
Kind regards

Good location for accessing train station. Arrived early and appreciated being given a room early. Said we had to leave early before the opening of the restaurant for breakfast so after a big discussion between staff they put a note in the room key box to give us a take away breakfast. On check out there was no take away breakfast and there was no coffee. Reception said he knew nothing about the arrangement and I pointed out the note on the room key box- he demanded to know the name of the lady who had made the arrangement as he had not been informed. I figure this is the hotels job and who remembers the reception staff name. The literature in the room says there is breakfast services in the lobby for early risers but there is not.
Paid for a breakfast that was not delivered and worse yet made to feel it was somehow my fault.
