Nice hotel on a good location, 10 mins from the main station.. The staff is nice and helpful.. The rooms are quite basic, not too much modern, as this is one of the oldest hotels of zurich.. Well maintained.. nearby nice turkish resturant to eat..near to lake zurich, may be 10 mins walk..

We stayed at this hotel for one night after taking the train from Geneva to Zurich. We really only needed a bed to sleep so we pick this hotel because of its amazing location. The hotel itself is located near all the shopping and stores in old town, and is a quick walk from the train station. It also was...

We loved our stay at Hotel Hirschen in Zurich. It is located in the old town, a short walk from the train station.. It is close to many old sites; churches, the University, the river and the big lake, and many restaurants. Our room was very clean, not large, but very comfortable. The staff was extremely helpful, friendly and kind;always...

Our room was not too big but had everything we needed. As for the staff, they were more than helpful and always kind and willing offer their services even in the middle of the night. Although the hotel is on a busy sweet little square in the centre of the old town, it was quiet and we slept like babies....

We found the Hirschen difficult to locate!! The frontage is glaringly obvious but the actual entrance is well hidden. It is the little door on the left of the restaurant, which we, and a few others walked into with suitcases thinking it was the entrance. The hotel is brilliantly situated for the Old Town and has good tram access but...

As usual I use a number of techniques to select a hotel. Again my program checked out when we checked into this location. Our travel partners arrived earlier in the day and sent a text to us. GREAT HOTEL GUYS! Said it all. It is just off the busiest part of old town Zurich on a small piazza. Out the...

Directly on the Niederdorfstrasse, this hotel is a very charming place to stay. The pedestrian street and the emplacement in the old town are very interesting. The room wasn't a big one but nice and the staff very helpful. The breakfast, with the view to the place, is also a good time to share...

I was a guest at this wonderful hotel on August 15, 16, 17, 2016. A friend of mine was meeting me at Zurich International Airport on the 18th so I decided to fly in early and stay by myself in the area. I chose to stay outside the city and thought that being on the lake would be a wonderful...

Perfect location near night-life and the river. The staff were really helpful and had chosen a lovely bright corner room with windows on both sides (I had requested 'light' in the booking) At the front desk they suggested I buy 24 hour travel ticket for CHF8.50 which I used on the boat and trams. I didn't eat here but there...

The central location is really good - everything is right in front of you. The inside of my room was basic but it had everything you need in a 3star hotel.
