    Fantastic Hotel in the city of Zurich

    Check in was very friendly and efficient. The reception staff were all fabulous especially the 2 guys who attended to us were helpful in every way. We love the convenience of the location. The housekeeping also did a very good job. Only minor feedback was out of the 2 rooms, one of the smaller rooms was in an awkward shape but the other bigger room was great. Breakfast was great too. We would stay at this hotel again if we return to Zurich.

    Clean and spacious room. Very friendly, kind and patient staff. Loved how pet friendly it is. Excellent location very close to the main train station. The only thing I did not like was the uncomfortable mattress in the room I stayed in.

    Superb service, superb location

    This hotel is located in the heart of the city. The main station is 10 minutes walk and Paradeplatz about 15 minutes walk. Löwenplatz tram stop is 2 minutes walk away. The hotel is superb. I had an upgraded room (it was called business single or something like that) which was really comfortable and also spacious for Zurich standards. It had a safe, a Segafredo espresso maker, a chair and a desk which was very practical for doing some work with the laptop and had enough space for making notes / having a look at notes. The fridge was a practical addition for stocking your own cold drinks / cheese / whatever you had. It was empty, i.e. not a mini-bar and a good size. My room was very quiet. I did not hear anything from the outside or from the neighbouring rooms. The service at the reception could not have been better. A dealt with a couple of different of people, who were all friendly, helpful and professional. A special thank you must go to Sarina, who was incredible. A couple of examples: In the morning I wanted a coffee but could not work out how to use the Segafredo machine. I went to ask her if it would be possible to send somebody to my room to help me. She told me that I would also be welcome to use the coffee machine in the breakfast area, immediately on the left. I did that and was very pleased with this quick solution. I also asked her if a bit later check-out was an option. Again, not a problem at all and I enjoyed the room until 3pm. Many thanks for everything!

    We were very comfortable in our spacious room which was attractive with a nice bathroom. We stayed 5 nights & our sheets were changed after 3 nights which was very civilised. We loved having a coffee maker in our room.The only criticism we have is of breakfast which we found expensive (20.5 SF) as there was little variety & not of high quality ingredients. Overall though this was a good stay for us & the best of all the Zurich hotels we’ve used.

    The hotel has a lovely, central location. We only really saw the staff when we checked in and out (our choice), but they were amenable and friendly when we spoke to them. For us the only downside of the hotel is that it is opposite the entrance/exit to an underground car park. This meant that during the night there was often a fair bit of car revving going on.

    I was able to check in at arrival (early afternoon) which was great since I had just arrived from the US. The room was small but clean and efficient.

    A lovely boutique hotel on top location in Zurich. Hotel City is in walking distance of main station, Bahnhofstrasse and Paradeplatz but yet it is in a quiet but lively area (Löwenstrasse). Wonderful decorated rooms.
