This hotel does not provide breakfast alongwith your stay. forget the breakfast they don't even provide tea or coffee alongwith your stay. Rooms are too small. Pathetic. I had convince a lot to even get one empty plate and bowl to feed my baby. would not advice any family to stay here. The person at the reception is too rude....

Dear Sirs We were a little shocked when reading your comment - because it is unfair and incorrect! We certainly provide breakfast - if you book it inclusively. And even if your rate was excluding breakfast, you had the chance to take it at surcharge. Since we don't know your name, we unfortunately cannot follow up details of your booking...

Reception = very unfriendly, rooms are really badly maintained. The club is also a catastrophe , they've lost a lot of expensive jackets wool rich,Canada goose when there was a concert ( ear drummers). I tried to ask, got punched and thrown out . Even if you tell them you are a diplomat , they throw you out with force...

Not sure how often they have live band in the club at the ground level of the hotel. I was here a Wednesday and the music was so loud that it was impossible to sleep. Things in my room vibrated to the heavy tunes. I simply don't understand how the hotel accept that - and even without informing guests. Never...

Our travel agent suggested X-Tra Hotel when I went into meltdown at the sight of Zurich hotel prices, and we were very grateful for his advice. The hotel is within walking distance of the station, and very close to a tram stop. I wasn't overly keen on having to share a bathroom but that turned out to be no problem,...

My stay was OK. The rooms were modern and clean. I had shared bathroom/shower but a sink in the room. The breakfast was ok, they weren't helpful with me being vegan, so I bought some groceries and brought to the breakfast place. Overall too expensive in my opinion for a single room with shared bathroom/shower. The best part was the...

I wanted to visit Zurich and was intimidated by seeing so many hotels in the $300 to $500 per night range. I don't have Swiss Bank account money so I was trilled to find this hotel. It is in a good area close to the main train station and walking distance to most of the town. I paid $110 per...

Stayed here for a week in September. The hotel itself is staffed by nice people. The property is a cleanly run hotel, with rooms that have basic (if not Spartan) furnishings. Our group stayed in a triple, as rooms are very expensive in Zurich. The furniture was basic, but clean. The rooms lack electrical outlets, if you bring a lot...

It's been several times, that I stayed here. The reason is that it is close to my office. Did not expect much from the hotel, so basically it was OK. Last time I got a room on the top floor, that room was very small, and did not look that nice. (before I was on the 2nd floor, those rooms...
