“Average Hotel in Good Location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2011

For the money, it a good choice in very expensive city. Short walk from RR station. Large, clean, recently renovated room. Front desk clerk was friendly and helpful but didn't see any other staff. Adequate breakfast buffet. Recommended for one/two nights but would look elsewhere if staying more than that.

This hotel is totally unsuitable for unaccompanied female travellers. Please be aware of the fact that sex workers parade outside all night. This alone is OK as they do not bother other women who are clearly not touting for business, however thier presence attracts men looking for sex and it is these who are the problem.

Room Tip: Don't go for any rooms that face the front street

Located close to all shops, restaurants and attractions. Friendly and helpful staff, great food. But as another guest mentioned, the area seems to be the base of unattractive character. Spacious and clean room however. Would love to come back and stay here...

We received a corner room with a lot of sunlight. The view appears to have advantages and disadvantages. The advantage mentioned above was that the room was vivid and had natural sunlight during the day. The disadvantage was when night falls and then the whole area seems to attract some unattractive characters. At the corner off the hotel were around 5 young girls who tried to seduce pedestrians to visit a strip club...
Overall the location is good at the city center and 5 minutes from the train station but keep in mind that you won't get bored at the evening when staring out the window...

I booked this hotel because of the location (very close to the train station), and because the photos looked nice. The photos are actually vastly different to what the hotel actually looks like. It was 37 degrees in Zurich when I stayed, and my room, although it had a nice balcony on the 4th floor, had no air conditioning - it was totally sweltering hot. The bed was very uncomfortable, very saggy mattress - they were two single beds put together, and I had to sleep in the middle of them in order not to feel like i was disappearing into the mattress. My television didn't work, and nor did my hair dryer. There is a radio that I think dates back to around 1925. To add to the discomfort of the mattress and the heat, I had to sleep with all the windows open resulting in being eaten by mosquitoes, and being kept up by a lot of noise from rowdy people on the streets all night. There was no coffee or tea facilities in the room either. Bathroom was fine, clean and good pressure in the shower.

Breakfast was very basic - rolls with cheese and some cold meets. Coffee at breakfast was delicious though. For it being 'best in its class', I fear to think what the other hotels 'in its class' must be like. Very expensive hotel for what you get, but I guess Zurich is very expensive anyway. I won't be staying here again.

Room Tip: Room 401 has the balcony.

While expensive by NA standards, location was good, room modest but adequate and service great. Checkin with Mr. Baltsiakis was excellent and Mrs. Bulkler was delightfully helpful with my WiFi needs. Breakfast was acceptable with a reasonable variety of cold cereal and attentive service. Early access to room was and unexpected delight however costly WiFi was a disappointment and another BW inconsistency.
Overall, good value.

Less than a 15 minute train ride from the airport to Zurich HB and then 10 minute walk into the old town to the hotel, Best Western Hotel Zuercherhof is fabulously situated in the old town. After our visit to Zurich, we could not think of any other area (old town) that we would rather stay as everything is only a walk away with the hotel situated in the middle of all the charming lanes. Thanks to tripadvisor posts, we had asked for a room on the top floor at the back, and were given #401. What a room! We had a rooftop patio that was large and had a view of the rooftops towards the canal. Crisp, pristine white sheets, covers and towels and the room was very clean. Tripadvisor posts had warned that the area can be a bit noisy at night so we went into with this in mind. As it was warm out we had left the window and patio door open and towards midnight could hear singing from the surrounding area; however, we were not bothered at all, as unless you are staying outside the city limits, you would be bound to get some noise, including the charm of the many church bells ringing through the morning and day – the hotel’s location, cleanliness, service and price is well worth it. If you are really bothered by it, a pair of ear plugs would be all that you need (usually a must anyway to travel with in any European city). Well worth the $ for this gem of a hotel.
