Nice and clean big rooms. Good location. Limited breakfast. Big rooms. Helpful staff Close to the main attractions and main train station very expensive. Over priced. We expected more by paying all this amount.

I titled this review sweat. Because that's all I did while at this hotel. Now I'm a pretty simple guy that doesn't have very high expectations but when I'm traveling somewhere in August and I'm paying $170 a night I do expect air conditioning especially when you advertise such. From supposedly broken AC's that were there then fixed it pours...

This hotel was booked for me, but I had a good stay. My room on the top floor at the back had a wonderful view over the roofs of the old town to the river, with the facade of the Swiss National Museum completing the scene. My room was quiet and cool - I think some of the others were...

Excellent location: in short walking distance from the main train station, and also very close to the Limmat river and to a number of clothing stores, restaurants etc. in the old city. Very clean; my room was very comfortable and the bathroom amenities more than adequate. The personnel was very friendly and polite, and always willing to answer questions and...

I had an excellent stay at this hotel, the room was clean, the service excellent and the breakfast generous (I was there early). I appreciated the comfort of the room with simple yet thoughtful furnishings. Everything I needed was here. The toiletries were again both generous and thoughtful. The location was second to none and made for a very pleasant...

We recently stayed at this hotel (room 101) for 3 nights at the end of a trip to Europe. We chose this hotel based on its location, earlier reviews, and a desire to stay in a more "authentic" hotel than one of the big chains. Unfortunately the only thing right about the Rutli is its location. I will try not...

Great location (short walk to Hbf and other attractions, restaurants, shopping etc), polite staff and modest breakfast BUT - Air conditioning was broken. We checked in on a a hot and humid Sunday night in July and were told it would be fixed on Monday. Come Monday night, still no relief! We were advised to keep the window open for...

There was a very rude old woman working in the breakfast area who told us we had to clean the bread from the table we didn't even put there and then she didn't bring my coffee although i had ordered one. It felt like because i was a younger woman i didn't get the same good service as the older...

The hotel room itself was acceptable at best. The room was across the street from a bar, and there was shouting and partying until way into the morning hours. We had to have the window closed in order for it to be quiet enough for us to sleep. There was no air conditioning or fan working. We asked about it...
