We unfortunately only had one night in Zurich, but it was well spent at the Hotel Rutli. I had originally booked the Adler Hotel, but they cancelled on us with only a couple of weeks to go so it was a scramble to find something else quickly. Luckily I found the Hotel Rutli and I am very glad we did....

We have stayed here many times and have always enjoyed it. But rooms vary a lot in size and that was our (fairly minor) gripe as it did not measure up to previous visits. The previous two or three times, our room and bathroom were large by Zurich standards and certainly large for this price range as this hotel is...

Like many Zurich three-star hotels, Sorell Rutli is smallish, tastefully decorated, and well appointed. It is located at the edge of the city centre, less than ten minutes to Central Station and just over ten to the famed Bahnhofstasse. At night the area can be a bit noisy, both from people and traffic. Breakfast is adequate. Staff are efficient. Overall...

I'm only writing this review because the hotel specifically asked for one. I wasn't bowled over by this hotel. I couldn't get the coffee machine to work. Even if I had, there wasn't any sweetener. Breakfast buffet was adequate, but nothing special. The room was oppressively hot. Unfortunately, when I opened the window to get some cooler air, the night...
