Location is great, near the main train station and at the entrance of the old city. My room was large, clean, modern and equipped with a nespresso coffee machine. Breakfast was average but of good quality. Personnel was very polite and helpful. Only downside was the high prices (like everything else in Zurich)

The hotel is located 5 minutes walking from the train station. It's a quiet street, and has multiple tran and bus lines very near. It's possible to visit the main tourist area of Zurich just walking. The room is very clean and comfortable, the staff is very kind and helpfull! beakgast is ok.

The breakfast was a rich buffet with plenty of food, great veggies and excellent service! The location is superb, just 5 minutes from the central Zurich HB station, and with quite a few bars/pubs within a short walking distance.

We spent one night in the Sorell Hotel. The hotel is located right near the train station which is handy. It's well located to access most parts of the central city by foot. The hotel is nice and has everything you'd need. The bathroom was small but did the job. The coffee machine in the room and free bottled water... More

It is approximately 2 blocks from the train station. The room has a safe, several English speaking tv channels, good storage for my things, and the bed was comfortable. There is a breakfast buffet starting at 0630 every morning, which is nice, so one can get out the door to the train station at a good time. There are places... More

Good location close to Railway Station, staff were friendly and helpful, room size was good and views were okay. WiFi was free and worked well. Bed was good and nice pillows. Breakfast was quite good with a variety of options although some trays were slow at being topped up. Very expensive for what you got but isn't everything in Switzerland.... More

I have come to the conclusion that i will only book 4 star hotels from now on while in Europe. 3 stars just don't cut it. I choose this hotel for it's location--close to the train station, although with luggage, it felt like quiet a hike. The location of this hotel felt a little uncomfortable to me, the neighborhood was... More
