My husband and I stayed here for one night on 30/12/07. Having seen photos of the hotel rooms that looked very modern and stylish, I noticed that the reality didn't quite live up to my expectations. However the staff were friendly and helpful, the location handy, and we got a great deal for B&B on the internet (£65pn), so can't...

Loved the Hotel Plattenhof in Zurich. It is quiet, easy to get to via the trams from the city center. Extemely clean, breakfast buffet phenominal and staff could not have been more attentive. One minor set back, no room darkening window treatments.

Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights and was pleased overall. The room was sort of minimalist and the bathroom adequate. I would recommend for a short trip to Zurich. As other reviewers have said, it's close to the tram and a short trip to the city center. Parking was a little steep, but I suspect most people won't need...

In a quiet neighborhood, close to the tram stop and a nice walk (10 min) away from the center. Room big enough but not very stylish but at least not terribly old fashion like some hotels in Switzerland. Bed was comfy, bathroom a bit small and old fashioned. Shower small but powerful and hot enough. Breakfast is well organized and...

Hotel Plattenhof was a good place to stay for one night in Zurich. It is located in a quiet area near the university. The tram stop was a block away and got you to the train station in a couple of minutes. The staff was helpful. The room we had was a good size, but the furniture was a bit...

Stayed here with 4 female friends on a weekend away in Zurich. The whole hotel is very stylish and well designed. Rooms were large with comfy beds and cool furniture. Our bathroom was bit on the small side but our friends room had a bathroom which was huge so I guess all the rooms are all different. There is a...

Good location for weekend break with easy access to city centre via tram and only a twenty minute walk. Hotel is clean and comfortable, room amenities are fairly basic but adequate. Breakfast is provided and is plentiful. Popular bar area serves snacks throughout day. Good place to stay if you can get a deal on the price otherwise expensive for...

Lovely location, mostly quiet except for loud church bells every quarter hour, which is nobody's fault, just a little annoying if you have jet lag! Staff was courteous and helpful, the only improvement I would suggest is that they deoderize the lobby / entrance as it smells like cigarrette smoke. Also, would have been nice to have free WI-FI connectivity,...

This hotel is not really 3 star hotel, I would say. The location is quite good but the hotel room itself is terrible. We had double room and for example our bed was not in line. I mean that the headside was lower than feetside. And there was really nothing in room but 1 lousy bed, small tv and chair....
