Hotel Limmatblick
Ranked #118 of 137 Hotels in Zurich
Reviewed 12 July 2013

I stayed here since the hotel was the least expensive listed on a conference hotel list. This hotel is artsy and interesting, near a lot of restaurants and shops, plus it has its own bar. BUT, if it's hot, spend the money and book a 5 star hotel for air conditioning.

Yes, it's a North American travel need but you won't be able to sleep in Zurich on a hot night because the law apparently disallows a/c in hotels with less than 5 stars. So, you're already paying a lot of money and then you find out there is no a/c. Why does this matter at this hotel?

Well, the back rooms face the noisy restaurants, drunk people at 2am until 6am, and it's suffocating not to have the windows opened. The front room is somewhat better but still lots of noise.

Definitely choose this hotel if you're going on cooler months. Service was very good, very chill. Evening staff was more helpful than the morning staff. I really liked this place but the first few days in the heat were miserable. If you're there on business and need to sleep well, try to get a 5 star hotel.

Room Tip: Spend the extra for the front room with a balcony.

The room was very small. There was no air conditioning and the temperature was 92F. My husband and I slept with the windows wide open with no covers on. We were within 2 feet of the next building and could see the man next door brushing his teeth. Because the windows were open, the street noise and people at cafe's kept us up most of the night. It was way too expensive for the size of the room and no air conditioning. We spent 3 weeks in Switzerland and France - 8 hotels in all - and this was the worst.

Room Tip: Book in the winter.

Friendly helpful staff, but no AC in a heat wave made the room uncomfortable as one needed to open the (broken hinged) window to get air - and the hotel being surrounded by bars, did not quiet down until quite late. The breakfast was lovely; varied and tasty items. Yes, close to train station, river across the street, interesting shops nearby.

Room Tip: Front or back, you will have bar noise at night, since you will have open windows for air in the sum...

We stayed here for one night as we toured through zurich. The place is RIGHT near the main action and Old Town. So, if you want tranquil and quiet this place would not be a good fit. It is however, very convenient (one block from the train station, downtown and old town). Rooms are very nice. Good value for the quality of the room and location.

We spent 3 nights at this hotel in a double room. First of all, the biggest plus point for this hotel is this hotel is its location. Just located at a stone throw from the Zurich Main Station you can just take a train from the airport and drag your bags to the hotel. The rooms are nice, compact and efficient. Dont expect too many frills, though. I loved that little sit out our room had overlooking the Limmat river. The breakfast spread was good and had some good quality stuff. The 180 odd franks we paid per night may sound a little expensive by the standards of other cities. But this is Zurich, prices are crazy out here. Given that, I think we got a pretty good deal. The staff very friendly and helpful. The WLAN speeds were decent (both at the bar and rooms).All the major attractions in the city are just a short walk away (Opernhaus, Niederdorf, Lake etc). In addition the central tram stop is right outside the hotel. For those willing to splurge on taxis, they have one too outside the hotel. Overall, I would highly recommend this hotel given its brilliant location and competitive pricing.

Room Tip: A couple of rooms in the first floor have a nice little sitout facing the river. Recommend that.

I dont know about most people but Hotel accommodation in Zurich is normally daylight extortion. Likewise the hotels are efficient but down right dull and not always in the best location. Hotel Limmatblick was a real find. Firstly, it sits on the quayside less less than 75m from the main railway station. It has a wonderful cafe frontage and its reception is actually the restaurant and bar. The staff however could not have been more friendly without the stuffy Swiss distance and you felt right in the swing of things. The rooms were very comfortable and frankly the same as any 5 star down the road. Location wise, we just had to stroll out to the buzzling back streets of Zurich old town with a massive choice of restaurants, bars, clubs and above all people having fun. Not usually seen in the rest of Switzerland. The breakfasts were excellent sipping a cappuccino on the quayside terrace. The bill was 120 CHF per room per night. That is an exceptional price for a city where the average is way into the 300 mark. For business or pleasure, look no further. This hotel is the real deal.

Room Tip: They have lakeside views. Just ask.
