This was the second time I have stayed at Sorell Hotel Rütli. I was very pleased with my first stay and wrote a fairly detailed - and very complimentary - review of it at the time on hotels.com. I am not going to repeat the things I have mentioned before, this will be a brief one.
Everything was still as good as before. I had an excellent night's sleep on my previous stay, and, if possible, this time an even better one, because I made use of their pillow menu and ordered their neck pillow for the night. That was a perfect fit for me and I slept like an angel.
In these days of the pandemic I was very pleased to find the fully stocked minibar. I had had an early wake-up call to take the flight followed by meetings on arrival to Zurich. Therefore I had a long tiring day behind me by the time I checked in at around 4pm. Therefore I was delighted and relieved to be able to have a beer from the minibar and relax a bit in my room on arrival, without the need to go out and mix with other people. Also, at the price of 6 Swiss francs it was a fair price.
One improvement that I paid attention to this time was that they had added some pre-packed items to their breakfast menu, i.e. muesli and fruit-salad.
Both the check-in and check-out were quick, friendly and professional. The person who checked me in knew that I had stayed there before and welcomed me back. The person who checked me out was also great, asking me if needed a taxi or would be taking the train.
