A small but intimately managed house, a real gem in the heart of Zurich, right next to the ETH and the university. This has already impressed a lot of guests: the Sorell Hotel Rex scores with its 4-star ambience at 3-star prices. And in the perfect location.

Not only was our room comfortable and unique, but Alexandra at the front desk saved our trip! I lost my phone in a cab and she called all the cab companies and got my phone back safe and sound. Great!

The hotel itself is very nice, on a tram line, close to the city center. Rooms are spacious, well decorated and well equipped. Tow problems: that staff that behaves like prison staff and a tiny little elevator that leaves you waiting for hours.

They have those mobile air-con which works out well. We were there in August and we don't find the room too hot. (My husband usually can't sleep in a room without air-con so if he's OK most people would be fine.)
