Good location.A short walk to railway station and near to tram which took us directly to airport.
Also near to old town, which was great as we manage to visit places within a day before flying home. Would recommend this hotel to those visiting Switzerland ,using Zurich as lap before flight home.

it is ideally located. staff is extremely courteous and helpful. We reached the hotel at 7 am and were given an early check in.It is close to the main train station, and the Lake....
Breakfast is good and above all the staff is all smiling and helpful Our room was small and the only thing lacking was a kettle.

Perfect for a 2 night stay in zurich, a 800 metre walk tot he railway station ... If you have a lot of baggage to lug around by foot from the railway station, would be wiser to choose hotel central plaza, a 4 star hotel perhaps:)
Actually, its an easy area to locate if you have the map.. Right in the heart of old town, quaint bars, night clubs a nd the cabarets.
Perfect base to visit Zurich old town... Bustling area with nice cafes and eateries on parallel streets... The beer hall is on the parallel street.

Friendly helpful staff at the reception...Michael and Sabine... If travelling with family or a small group , recommended to take acab to the airport for chf 45... The hotel arranges this service.

They serve a good bircher muesli at breakast...unpretentious small hotel... Very clean...
Good spacious rooms... We had a decent sized room for 2 adults and 2 children at chf 300 a night inclusive of breakfast...

Excellent free wifi...

We chose this place after reading the reviews. We were very happy with our room and the location was walking distance from the train station. The room was spacious and clean, with nice beds The service was excellent and the breakfast was very nice. Yes, there are "ladies of the night" outside, but never felt unsafe. I don't think children would even know, unless you told them! This would not stop me from going. Would go back.

Room Tip: Choose higher floor on back side, which is what we had, very quiet!

We stayed a total of 2 nights at Hotel Basilea. The location is great with lots of restaurants and bars nearby. It is a 10 minute walk from the Main Rail Station and a 20 minute walk to Lake Zurich. The staff were welcoming and very helpful when we had issues getting our flights checked in.

The rooms are small but well laid out and we did not feel cramped. The hotel was quiet (even on Saturday night).

The breakfast was extensive with lots of selection of yogurts, cold meats, cheeses, cereals and fruits.

We stayed for a quick overnighter on the way to the snow after arriving late into Zurich. We had a room for 4 (family with 2 young children). It was pretty basic, just like a normal hotel room with an couple of extra beds slotted in.

For the price, I should have probably stayed at the Premier Inn at the airport, as I did on the way back, which was a quarter of the price.

The location, however, was very good. A close walk to the banhof and the old town, as well as numerous coffee shops and restaurants.

Breakfast was included, but it was pretty average, in-keeping with the rest of the place.

Location good, but you could probably do better.

Hotel was very basic but very clean and seemed good value for expensive Zurich. The staff were very helpful and the breakfast was great, esp because we didn't realise it was included in the price. Very convenient location to the main train station and given that Zurich isn't that big its very easy to walk to most of the attractions. There is also a number of decent eating/drinking places nearby.
