Nice hotel and lovely staff.
When I reached the hotel there was no one at reception desk. I was being to think there was no one at the desk. Unfortunately there was noise from outside and in the hotel that disturbed my sleep. But the room was clean and welcoming. The staff were must helpful and helped me whenever necessary.

Excellent as always
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 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. Highly recommended.

A comfortable stay in the centre
The check in was swift and efficient. The hotel is on a fairly busy street but the noise isolation is excellent. I slept like a baby and did not hear a thing from the street. The room is compact but comfortable. There is a fully stocked mini-bar (a rarity these days) and an espresso machine. They have also kept the small nice extra touches which are typical of Sorell hotels: The little duck in the bathroom, the shoe shorn, the yoga mat, and the umbrellas in the room in case it rains. Often the bathrooms in Sorell hotels come with a bath, but this one only had a shower. The breakfast room was laid out in a socially distanced manner, i.e. only a certain number of tables were laid out with cutlery and napkins. The laid tables were at least two meters away from each other. That is a clever thing to do in these times. A was a little bit worried about the traditional buffet breakfast. However, take a small bottle of hand disinfectant with you to the breakfast room and wipe your hands after you have touched the utensils at the buffet and you should be fine. Also the check-out was quick and professional.
