Our stay at the Statthotel was pleasant and comfortable. We arrived during the receptionist hours, and were checked in by a person rather than the after-hours system. I recommend timing your arrival for this, if at all possible, as it makes things easier. There is a small elevator to get up to the third level (check-in), so we took turns going up due to amount of people/luggage. The hotel door is on a small street, next to a bar. Going in during the late evening was safe, but you will pass by several people out at the bar. The rooms were clean, and fairly spacious. I liked that quantity of windows, and that they could open for fresh air. No air conditioning (from what I could tell), but it was not needed in late June. There was a fan, though. The shower was great! And, a regular hair dryer was in the room. The nespresso machine made great coffee, and the daily snack put in the room was a nice treat.
The only negative thing that may bother some guests is the noise - being located near two bars, noise is an issue. We did not mind it, however, and it seemed to stop shortly after midnight. The amazing location of this hotel -- right off the water, near a metro stop, and by many shops/restaurants -- made the slight noise totally bearable. There are earplugs by each beside, as well. We liked the minimal contact with other guests and hotel staff -- it seemed more like an apartment stay, which was relaxing and easy. You won't be disappointed if you stay here!

Excellent staff offering helpful service. Excellent breakfast offering the usual hot and cold foods. The room was spacious although the bed might have been a bit small for two people (I was on my own). They will alter the firmness of the Airlux mattress if you ask (mine was fine). Get tram 7 from the station to the Stockerstrasse stop (about 10 mins). Trams are around the corner from the hotel and it's only a short stroll to the Lake past the Congress House. I defy anyone not to enjoy Zürich - it's a wonderful place where everything works!
The building itself is in an amorphous corner block, but inside is fine, and with so much to see and do in Zürich, the outside look is irrelevant.

From the airport to the hotel takes about 30 minutes using the direct train and a tram ride. We stayed here for the European Athletics Championship (as did a few others) and could reach the stadium from a tram stop only one street away.
We were delighted by the hotel's location, its facilities and its helpful and friendly staff. As you would expect in Switzerland it was beautifully clean and well run and the breakfast was a delight.
The hotel is situated only five minutes from the main part of Zurich using either the excellent tram network - but so close to the lakeside that it makes for a pleassant walk either morning or evening and its also where you can access the open air cinema, swimming and boating.
Locally there are plenty of good restaurants if you dont want to go into the town centre and also a good range of shops.
