I stayed at the Hotel Korne Limmatquai because it was the best hotel for the cheapest price. I stayed about 2 weeks, one week each time. I am a geezer. The rooms are small, comfortable, and adequate for a single adult. Some of the rooms have showers, but I found it more fun using the common showers and paying less...

I stayed at the hotel for one night. The room was tidy and had clean, comfortable beds. The location was good, close to the train station, overlooking the river.

Stayed at the Hotel Krone from August 27-29, 2004. It's a short walk from the train station, right on the Limmat River. Great location with lots of shops, bars, and restaurants nearby, and easy access to all the sights. But I picked it because it was the cheapest room I could find in downtown Zurich. The description said check-in started...
