“Good price for Zurich”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 November 2011

We stay at the Ascot at least once a year because for a central hotel it is reasonably priced by Zurich standards and you can travel directly from/to the airport to Enge station (ca.20 mins) which is directly across the road from the hotel. We also have a passion for Japanese food and the hotel's Restaurant Fujiya is a wonderful Teppenyaki restaurant with a diverse menu including sushi, tempura, etc.

In my opinion Ascot Hotel in Zurich offers best value for money. Big, clean and comfortable rooms, friendly stuff, nice restaurant in the hotel and nearby. I will recommend this hotel to anyone who needs to spend several nights in Zurich.

First of all, location: the hotel is very easy to reach from the airport. You have to take the train to Enge station, and as you come out of the station, the hotel will be right in front of you. It's also very easy to reach the city center, the lake is just 5 minutes walk away, the city center is approximately 10. You can also take a tram from right in front of the hotel.
All the staff were very polite and kind.
The room is nicely decorated, very clean and I would give it 3.5*. It's not as luxurious as some other 4* hotels I have been, but nice and comfortable.
Pricewise it's a bit expensive, although it's Switzerland, so I wasn't really surprised and it was still cheaper than many other hotels.
Breakfast was mainly of cold things, but fresh and delicious. I absolutely loved their muesli, try it!
All in all, it's a lovely hotel to stay in, and I would't hesitate coming back again.

If you don't mind traveling 20 minutes to reach the heart of Zurich, Ascot provides a very good option for visitors of the city. It has very comfortable and spacious rooms, courteous staff and great service. However the hotel is expensive and at the cost, you can look out for better options. However if you intend to stay here, it will be very comfortable.

I have stayed at the Ascot many times, but have chosen elsewhere for the last year and half. This was my first stay since the renovation. The rooms are now much more inviting, and the decor continues to show middle-European charm. Staff as helpful and friendly as ever. Only two gripes: The lighting in the room is very dim, thanks to no real central light fitting, and the duvet and pillow are now made of ghastly hollowfibre (which, whilst I know that many people prefer it, feels cheap and nasty to me).

Room Tip: Road side noisier, but double glazed and has air-conditioning. Courtyard has a view of the courtyard...

The Hotel Ascot is not inexpensive (very few things ARE inexpensive in Zurich), but it's a nice hotel. It is not a large hotel, so it had a personal, intimate sort of vibe. The staff was extremely courteous, friendly, and helpful. The room was immaculately clean, spacious, and nicely furnished, and while everything was new and modern it still managed to retain a pleasant old-world feel. The property has an attractive look and feel in its common areas. The breakfast buffet (included in my room rate) was excellent--one of the nicer ones I've seen in such hotels. The hotel is centrally located (though enough off the main paths to be quiet), and the location felt safe and secure. It was a nice stay, and I would gladly stay there again.

We landed in Zurich with St. Moritz our ultimate destination, but spent two nights in Zurich, one before and one after our trip to St. Moritz. We stayed at the Ascot which was both very beautiful and convenient- the desk staff is very friendly and knowledgeable, the service very punctual in the Swiss tradition.
The hotel is located right across the street from the Zurich Enge, a large train station, and trains can be taken from there to Zurich HB, the main station in Zurich.
As is with most of Europe, dont assume your room is air conditioned- if you wish for one, ask for one at the time of your reservation.
