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...

It is not easy to evaluate this hotel, since it has many important pros but also a few important cons. Pros: It is very well-located (a ten minutes walk to Zurich's Main Station), the staff members are very nice and attentive and the rooms are clean and comfortable (plus the free Wi-Fi). Cons: The hotel is located near a church...

Reception staff gave very little information about the hotel & it's restaurants & facilities, no menu in the room for the food, 1.5 kilometers from any restaurants except for a fast food across the street, the area was far from clean. to expensive for the sevice & emplacement.

This hotel is close to Main Railway station and it has lot of restaurants and markets in walking distance. Worth for paying. Don't expect much facilities in hotel as it is very old. Front desk staff was not pleasant, they just work like machine.

Hotel is basic but very clean. No air conditioning but there was a fan in the room.Our room had an ensuite but not all rooms do. Reception staff are very helpful. Great location as there is a tram stop directly outside the hotel. Would definately recommend this accommodation.

Zurich is not a cheap city, in fact its said to be the most expensive city in the world. We were in Zurich for one night to go to a concert and booked the Hotel Xtra. It's well located close to the train station and on a tram route with a tram stop very close by. There are plenty of...

I stayed twice at the X-TRA Hotel and overall my experience has been pleasant. Please note that in the very expensive city of Zürich, X-TRA hotel is a very good budget choice if you don't mind sharing a bathroom. First of all, the bedrooms are good. Since I had been there twice and got two different bedrooms (both with shared...

The staff here were very friendly. This hotel is one street over to the train and very close to the rest of the city. We walked everywhere. There is free wifi, but for breakfast you have to pay. Great option for travel on a budget.

Very simple and in not updated. Rooms are noisy from the tram, poorly sound proofed. The TV is prehistoric and really small. Have not seen a tube TV for ages. However. It is clean and everything is working, room size is also OK There are better places for the price.
