Nice hotel, good amenities, central location

Posted Aug 13, 2014
Pros: location, staff helpfulness, amenities
Location: Close to Swiss museum, shopping district, steps from the main train station, ten minutes from old town and 20 mins from Lake.
Stayed there 2 days, and it's situated close to most of Zurich's main attractions . The staff is extremely helpful and will help plan your time there. The room had a window and a view (rare for european hotels)! And the bathroom was clean, renovated, room was comfortable, they provide slippers, tea and even a tablet PC in your room to surf! Excellent hotel!

Pros: We upgraded to a bigger room and it was more than adequate. The breakfast was typical of what we found in other hotels-good quality and selection.
The hotel was adjacent to the main train station, which really simplified travel to and from Zurich. We were glad to be within walking distance of the Swiss National Museum,shopping, restaurants and the lake. Because of this, we did not have to rent a car or use public transportation during our 3 day stay in Zurich-everything we needed was close by. The desk staff was helpful in making recommendations for restaurants and helping us with train schedules. The location is a bit noisy in the early evening but it does quiet down later. If you want to be off the beaten track, this would not be the place.

Next to train station

Posted Jul 23, 2014
Pros: Location and staff
Cons: Bathroom privacy
Location: Located across from the train station and within walking distance of Old Town, shopping and museums.
The staff is very helpful and friendly and will do anything to make your stay in Zurich enjoyable. It is located just across from the train station next to Starbucks and within walking distance to Old Town and museums. The tram is right there too. The room was spacious and comfortable. No AC so when it is warm you must have the windows open and it can get very noisy with the traffic downstairs. There is a fan in the room which is very helpful. Our room had a desk and a small seating area but the chair smelled of body odor which was not good. The bathroom was a bit odd. It is nice and new but there is a full length, mottled glass door right next to the toilet and across from the shower. At night, if you have the light on in the bathroom I assume everyone outside can see you...or at least your shadow. There is a small balcony off the bathroom (outside the glass door). Zurich is very expensive and this hotel was very reasonable so aside from the few things mentioned I would definitely stay here again. The staff and location make up for it.

Very good hotel near the railway station

Posted Jul 19, 2014
Pros: Close to the station which is why we chose it. And everything else.
Cons: Better air conditioning.
Location: An easy walk to the city center and the lake.
The hotel was very clean and our room was lovely. Breakfast had a good choice and there was plenty of it. The staff could not do enough for you and always smiled while they were talking to you in perfect english. The only downside was that our room was an bit noisy at night as we like to sleep with a window open, but overall very good.

Not In The Heat of the Summer

Posted Jun 27, 2014
Pros: Breakfast
Cons: Air Conditioning
Location: This hotel adjoins the main rail station with the underground shops, several eateries, and a Starbucks.
This may be a 3 star hotel but without air conditioning in the summer, this place is barely tolerable. The staff is friendly and multi-lingual. The location by the main rail station and just steps away from an entrance, lets you get to your train connection or the underground shopping mall in just a few minutes. But I think for a 3 star hotel they also have a pretty good breakfast bar.

Great staff convenient to train station.

Posted Jun 12, 2014
The hotel room was very clean and newly remodeled. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The only problem is that it was loud and we happened to be in Zurich on a hot night and needed the window open. Breakfast was above average. The location is convenient to the train station. Overall a great stay.

Dear guest. Thank you very much for your excellent review on Expedia. I'm really sorry that the temperature in your room was to high. For this short hot period in Zurich we put fans in all our rooms but sometimes it is still too warm and I apologizr for that.. I really enjoyed your comment about our breakfast buffet. We changed a lot in the last year and are very proud of the result. Feedback like yours is a great motivation for the entire team. I wish you all the best and hope to see you again at the Walhalla Hotel in Zurich. Kind regards Kurt Wodiczka

Excellent hotel for a train or airport connection

Posted May 19, 2014 on Hotels.com
This hotel is right behind the train station, so it is very convenient if you are traveling through Zurich on your way to someplace else. Trains leave every 10 minutes to the airport, and the ride is only 10 or so minutes, so it works for early morning flights. The rooms are big for European standards, and beautifully maintained. I would gladly stay there again.
