Having been a regular at the Hotel Hottingen, I was on friendly terms with the staff, and felt familiar with the accommodation in the "studio" with its kitchenette. The rooms are generally clean and simple and the common areas have a slightly dorm-like ambience. Unfortunately when, on one of my regular visits, a number of trivial things went wrong -...

Good hotel not too far from the centre of Zürich. Hotel is very clean and pleasant, breakfast is great and the staff let me check in very early as my room was already ready. Prices are humane for Switzerland! Would stay again.

We enjoyed our stay: it's a plain hotel,reasonably priced by Zurich's standard. It offers few frills, but everything it does offer is well and, of course (this is Switzerland!) efficiently done.I'd stay again. MMcC

I stayed in this hottel for a business trip for 2 weeks. The service is excellant. The location is very near to city center, only 10 mins walk. Breakfast is really good. You can always take a walk to Lake Zurich or stroll around the Theater road if you feel bored.
