“Nice & clean hotel but a bit cold”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

To get there from central station you need to get to a train for 1 stop, and then walk about 5 minutes. The hotel is nice & clean. the room is quite spacious for budget hotel. the only cons is that the aircon is centralised, so you can't adjust the temperature. it's too cold for us that time, as the wheather outside is also cold.

Staff is very unfriendly & unwelcoming. They were only doing there Minimum Job and we constantly had to look for them when we needed something. Cleaning Service did not replace bed sheet even though there was a 10 cm big blood stain on it. They just kept doing the bed eveyday but did not replace the sheet. We could not believe it. Ironingboard at the reception is broke. It fold down by itself while ironig. Very Very dangerouse. But staff does not seem to care. When we checked out at the Hotel. No "goodbye come see us again" or "thank you for staying with us". Simply nothing. And we consider ourselfs very friendly People. While we were there have not complained to them at all. We were always friendly. Maybe it's not the Hotel though, I realized that in General swiss People are just a Little cold and rude (not the foreigners thought that live in Switzerland). Only great Thing about this Hotel was the Location.

My husband & I stayed here one night, & I'm not sure we could've handled another! The room is modern & clean, & I suppose it's an efficient use of space...but man, is it cramped. The bed was hard, the pillows might have been the flattest pillows I've ever used, there were NO amenities (bring your own shampoo & extra soap if you need more than one tiny little bar!), I had to "rent" a hairdryer...& make sure you really know your roommate well because the shower is basically IN the room. Virtually no privacy! And we ended up with a 3-person room - a twin bunk bed was above the queen bed - but I have no idea how 3 people could possibly share it.

The location is good, though. The tram to get into the city is right across the street, & the train station to get to the airport is just a short walk away. We chose this hotel because Zurich hotels are so pricey & we were only there for one night, in which case it met our needs. Just make sure your needs are BASIC before staying here!

We stayed in many Ibis hotels in different location but it is not as good as the previous one we stayed. Only good thing is we got locker to keep our bag when we went out after checking out. Overall it's OK for one night stay. Compared to Lucerne Ibis budget hotel and our other stay in Switzerland and other Locations I would give Zurich Ibis budget hotel the least ranking. Its just OK and not bad.
