“Back Again !”
Reviewed 31 July 2013

Now my third time here. Still the only hotel I have found in Central Zurich with all the important things done right and no nonsense. Of course the breakfast is on the simple side, the rooms are small, and facilities very limited. It is a budget/vale hotel. Bit once again, the bed, shower, TV, WiFI worked well. and the location is still 5*. So if you need a porter to help you or room service go and pay double. If you just need a good night's sleepand to feel comfortable, come here. I will !

Room Tip: Better not street facing if you can. They collect the garbage early in the morning.

I had a wonderful experience in Hotel City Zurich. The location is perfect, very close to Zurich HB. I arrived there (I took a train from the airport) and I just walked to the hotel, which was very convenient. The location is ideal to walk around the city and get to know the main attrations. There's a Migros just across the street with supermarket, pharmacy, restaurant. I mean, the location is the highlight, really really fantastic. Very close to Bahnhofstrasse, where you find some great stores and you can have a lovely walk until you reach the Lake Zurich, an absolutely stunning place.
Also, the breakfast was great, with lot of options.
If you're staying in the economic room for 1 person, you must be aware that the room and the bathroom are very small, but it didn't bother me to be honest, I found it confortable and attended my needs.
I can't wait to come back to lovely Zurich and once again stay in this hotel!!

Located very centrally, this hotel was perfect for our holiday. It fit right into our budget, and the comfort and ambience was all good. The breakfast was also quite good, and the staff was very courteous and responsive to our needs. It was also located right in the middle of the activities that we had planned for, and everything worked out very well. We had a good time at the hotel.

Room Tip: See the size of the rooms prior to booking. The larger rooms cost only a fraction more, and are wort...

I spent a couple of pleasant nights in this hotel. It is very close to the station (what I needed) that can connect you to any place in the country and the airport. It is not cheap, but no hotel is cheap in Zurich. It is a very expensive city. This was at least more or less affordable and very central. You can walk to almost everywhere from here, from the lake to the cathedral and most of the landmarks.

Breakfast was included and the buffet had all that I needed and even more.

My single room was quite small, but was very clean and had lots of things in it. Nice new TV, coffee and tea facilities, fridge, air conditioning, safe, toiletries, wifi, nice ensuite bathroom with hairdryer and nice towels.

The room was a bit too warm, so I asked for a lighter cover for the bed. They didn’t have any other available, so had to do with the one I had and the air conditioning. The staff was very nice though.

They can save your luggage if needed as well. My room was in the last floor that had a nice terrace with chairs and a table. There’s a huge Migros supermarket and shop opposite the hotel, very handy for buying food. Also recommended visiting the close Sprüngli shops for some nice Swiss chocolate.

The title says it all. The rooms are not large, but everything worked. One step from everything in Central Zurich and not pretentious. Can't give five stars because it's not that sort of hotel, but will come back next time. Comfy bed, clean, adequate breakfast,good shower.

Very convenient location, close to the train station and in the city center within walking distance to many popular destinations. The breakfast is very good.
The only disappointment was that we paid more than 2,000 Swiss franks for three rooms and were not offered late check out or a room that we could use to change from business suites to jeans when we stopped by to pick up our bags before leaving.
Rooms are quite small by American standards.
Overall it is a good choice

Arrived on a Sunday night and the very helpful receptionist directed me to a wonderful nearby Italian restaurant (which I will be reviewing separately). Everything about the hotel was just fine (including the location). I would gladly stay again!
