If you are looking for a small, cosy hotel in the old town within walking distance from the lake you might want to try the Altstadt Hotel. This is in a side street a few steps from Limmatquai. I had a room on the 5th floor. I specifically requested a room that was quiet and I was pleased that it...

I stayed here for two nights on a trip recently booked by the conference I was attending. Nice location - very central to Zurich and a nice walk from the station, though there is a tram. It is a small hotel, small bar/restaurant downstairs and breakfast room on 1st floor. The double room I had was not large, but perfectly...

Location is great to see old Zurich. Check-in was friendly once the receptionist/barmaid/waitress realised I was there. Room typical size and clean. Small but acceptable bathroom. Bed too hard for me. Big problem was WiFi speed - Lync, Facetime impossible. Breakfast was meagre. This hotel may be great as a tourist base but not for a business person

Nice Hotel in the heart of the city. Rooms were tastefully decorated. Not sure if it is a family Hotel as we seen a lot of business executives during our stay. Plus point is that the Hotel is close to the amazing Swiss transport system with lots of great restaurants nearby. Breakfast was basic but sufficient.

Whenever I am in Zurich, I like to stay in this hotel. From the airport, I take the S Bahn to Stadelhofen and either walk or take tram 4 or 15 to Helmhaus. The hotel is 5 minutes walk to Paradeplatz which is convenient for business or shopping on Bahnhofstrasse. The rooms are clean with modern decor but I recommend...

Overall this is a very nice hotel with a great location close to the train station (one can walk in about 15-20 minutes or take Tram 4 about four stops). The beds are comfortable, the staff are helpful, and the breakfast is good. But for the price, one would expect all of this. Overall a nice place and recommended, if...

My family and I stay in Altstadt Hotel in the triple room for 2 nights. The front desk staff were welcoming and friendly during our stay. As a triple room, we had 2 double beds next to each other. A separate bed was set up in the room. The breakfast was a good varied European style of cold meats, cheeses,...

This was my second stay in Hotel Altstadt. During my most recent stay I stayed in a triple room with family. The hotel is located in Old Town Zurich. It really is a great location as it is only a few stops from Zurich Hauptbahnhof while being in the heart of the Old Town. It's very fun to just walk...

The location is just perfect - once you step out of the hotel you are in the midst of all the wonderful things in Altstadt. The rooms, their "literary" differentiation and decoration were great. Pre-arrival: Fantastic service. We had a slight complication to be accomodated, and they went the extra mile to support us. Room: Lovely room, proper french bed....

We stayed in this hotel for a Saturday night in June. This is a lovely hotel in a really picturesque part of the city. The staff were very welcoming on arrival and through out the stay. The rooms are themed after authors and with a collection of their works within the room. The rooms were spacious and thoughtfully laid out....
