We had a day in Zurich and wanted to have a place in downtown just to walk around and get a feel for the city. Altstadt Hotel worked very well for this. The room was neat, clean. I say this meaning as an absolute positive thing, it gave us a feeling like a collage dorm room of a very chic (and pretty well off) person. Perhaps the only thing was the folding bed. I am pretty hardy, but that was a bit hard even by my standards. We had the windows open a few times. While the area is pretty quiet, but I was impressed how well the windows muffled just about all outside sounds.
Breakfast was on the 1st floor with a very nice selection.
Kind of funny system for keeping the room keys :)More
