Great hotel near Zurich BH and old town. Warm and clean with very comfortable beds. Lots of restaurants and shops nearby
Pauline, nz1 night business trip
Fair 4,0
Not a pleasant stay
The hotel lobby was very clean and staff very nice. The room was warm so you had to open the window but it faces a busy and very noisy street. Very difficult to sleep and too hot with window closed. Also one side of bed up against wall making it very difficult to get in or out. The bathroom appeared to be clean but had a very strong mildew order. Bed was extremely hard.

Nice central hotel , close to train station. Enjoyed breakfast buffet there.
Tam, us1 night romance trip
Very good 8,0
Air conditioner unit was not very effective and it quit during our stay when the summer weather was very hot. It was not repaired and a fan was provided by the staff. A foul odor from the shower drain was evident on occasion. The breakfast was very good and when an item ran out from the buffet near the end of the service before we were able to enjoy our meal, the staff made a fresh small plate served to us. Staff recommendations and arrangements were excellent.

Very clean, comfortable bed, great service
Location, staff and room couldn’t have been more perfect. Very central location, close to great restaurants and a lively old town area. I would definitely stay here again.

Great place to stay but had trouble sleeping this
Noise at nights made it difficult to sleep. Someone was playing ping ping at 4 am and another night a couple had a very loud argument at midnight!

Lived up to high expectations
Sorell Hotels in general offer a high quality of service. They tend to be a cut above the typical business hotel with, for instance, Rituals toiletries, while still staying reasonably priced by Swiss standards. This one was no exception. The location is very central for travelers, while still being just a bit off the touristy mass that is Niederdorfstrasse. The restaurant gets a bit cramped because of its narrow design, but not much anyone can do about it, and the staff do their best to keep it smooth. Terrific stay and would definitely return.
