The room was clean and organized. The private bathroom was clean and came with amenities. My sister and I only stayed here one night, so we didn't need anything fancy. Hotel Alexander was a good fit for us! This was our first time in Zurich and we didn't do much research before coming. The front desk was very helpful in recommending a restaurant and telling us how to travel to our next location in Switzerland. The hotel is close to lots of shops and restaurants. We came during the summer and the sun didn't set until around 9 PM, so we spent more time walking around the area in the evening. This is located across from a restaurant so I could see people outside my window and people could look in; we just kept the white sheer curtains pulled and it was no problem. However, it was a little noisy due to the businesses outside when places were still open. Overall, we had a good experience staying here.

Absolutely perfect location with happy staff”
The hotel is located at the Old Town, surrounded by many restaurants, shops, convenient stores, etc. The staff are incredibly helpful with our needs and gave recommendations on what to do in Zurich especially Luigi, who let us borrow the hotel's pocket wifi. Staying connected with my family was a big plus, esp when the older kids start to wander in shopping areas. We will definitely come back to this hotel next year! Danke, Hotel Alexander ❤️
Dear Kathleen Thank you so much for taking the time to write this nice review. We are very happy that you enjoyed your stay so much and that you spoke so positively about our staff. It is also nice that you were able to enjoy our central location. The location in the middle of the beautiful old town of Zurich means proximity to the main railway station, the Limmat and the lakeside promenade. The renowned Bahnhofstrasse and the university are within easy reach. And the diversity of the culinary offer in Niederdorf is hard to beat. We hope you will remember Zurich positively and look forward to welcoming you as our guest again! Rina and Team-Alexander

Great location, some issues need to be mentioned though”
We travelled to Switzerland and decided to set our base in Zurich. The hotel is a great option for people who want to be nearby the main train station, 2 supermarkets, bars, restaurants and other attractions (including the main monasteries and Christams markets) - all walking distance. The breakfast was excellent and provided a brilliant start to the day in an intimate manner. Water was hot at all times. Issues that need to be mentioned: - The towel-rack warmer didn't work - Travellers should note that the location of the hotel means that you will hear noise, especially on weekends, from the street, due to the bars/restaurants - On 2 occasions we were also aoken slightly early due to the supply truck arriving at the nearby supermarket (6-6:30 AM...) - There was a distinct, and slightly unusual smell in our room for the first couple of nights - it seemed like someone had been smoking in the room, wit the smell sticking to the leather headboard. Not too bothersome, but very noticeable.
The staff was so very helpful with checking in & especially checking out. Very friendly & pleasant to talk to! The breakfast was good & the room was clean & equipped with everything I needed! I would highly recommend Hotel Alexander...convenient location!! Thanks for a wonderful stay Carole (USA)

We wish you all the best and look forward to your next stay. Best regards Rina and Team-Alexander Your Team-Alexander
quiet, well positioned, clean and comfortable”
What a pleasant surprise. Reasonably priced by Zurich standards for a spacious room, again by Zurich standards and quiet too despite being positioned in the thick of it in a busy and viby restaurant and bar precinct of the old town. Close to central station and all the main sights of central Zurich. Recommended.
Nice hotel, nice people”
Alexander is a small but nice hotel just optimally located with very friendly staff and -- for Switzerland -- very moderate priced. I always enjoy staying at this hotel.
A great 3 star Hotel”
This is a last minute decision to switch to this hotel and i made the right choice. This is a hotel along the old town of Zurich which is clean and room size is above average as compare to city area hotels. But the breakfast is simple and the price is abit high, It will be great if the price can be lower.
The Hotel has an excellent location in OLD TOWN. Centrally located in the heart of Zurich. I was visiting a nephew in Zurich. He also lived in the center vow town. The Train station was about two blocks from hotel. The breakfast was excellent. I would definitely stay again.

Goo dplace to stay”
Good place to stay! located in the center of the city and very easy to go to many points of interest. The most important thing... shopping places is just right in front of the hotel. However, it was a little bit far from the main station but it was not that bad if you walk without any suitcase. Close to many good restaurants and very easy to find something to eat. However, there were so many night clubs around the hotel so it was a little bit noisy and we needed to close the window. Lucky us that when we were there, the weather was nice so we were Ok with closing window without air conditioner. Also, the breakfast was as great as you satisfy with it and you can just walk for few minutes to go shopping. Nice room and good service, great place to stay!! The only bad thing is room price is a little bit high but worth paying!
Great location + Helpful Staff”
Great location. Right in Old Town along a streeer of restaurants and shops. One block from the scenic river. Easy walk to the main train station. The staff is super friendly and helpful. Only cons are - the rooms are quite small - I did a standard full room (but Zurich is an expensive city hotels with bigger room cost a lot more). Also there is no lounge area.
Dear Rachelle We were very pleased to receive your compliment. Above all, that you took the time to address positive words to our central location and friendly staff. Please be our guest once again and benefit from amenities such as our mobile hotspots and free entry to Zurich Zoo. We send all the best from Zurich, Rina & the Team Alexander
Holiday Visit ”
My cousin and I stayed at this hotel and it was wonderful! It was easy to get to from the airport as we just took the train and only had to walk 7 minutes from there. Once we arrived, the front desk attendant let us know they had free wi-fi hot spots that we could check out during our stay. The room was small but comfortable and clean. The hotel breakfast was amazing! The best part of the hotel was the location. It was easy to walk to everything from where we were located. Additionally, all of the Christmas markets were up and we walked out the front door and smelled yummy treats! This hotel made our stay and they were nice enough to hold our bags for free on the day we left so that we could explore the city a bit more without carrying luggage. I would definitely recommend staying here!
Dear Dominique Thank you very much for taking the time to reward us with such a nice feedback. We are all over happy to read your kind words for our amazing breakfast and cenrally location at Hotel Alexander. Zurich is also worth a vsit in summer time, you can enjoy a nice flea market, have a swim in the lake or enjoy the ice hockey world championship in may 2020. We would love to welcome you again at Hotel Alexander. Until then we wish you all the best, Rina and Team-Alexander
The price for location was reasonable given we are in Zurich, mad rush for train and still made it in 10min! Room is a good size, toilet was a tad small but very functional. The heater didnt seem to warm up the room much, but the duvets will definitely keep you warm! There is no kettle in the room. Location is just across the old town / shopping district, and next to the famous swiss chucci!
Dear Vanessa, Thank you very much for staying with us at Hotel Alexander in Zurich. Thank you also for taking the time for a feedback. We do appreciate your kind words for our very central location , right in the Old-town of Zurich. We do provide kettles on request. We hope that we can welcome you one day again. Stay healthy!

Good location, less than 10 mins walk from Zurich HB or could take a tram No.4 which is 2 stops away from the hotel. Comfortable bed, very clean rooms and friendly staff. Nice breakfast. Room is slightly small to fully open 2 large luggages.

Clean hotel in an excellent location”
We really enjoyed Hotel Alexander. We only stayed one night as we were on our way back from Zermatt, and we had to fly out the next morning. We wanted a hotel in the middle of everything, so we could walk and quickly take in the sights. This hotel was perfect. It was a short (7 min) walk to the train station, where we easily caught a train to the airport. There are plenty of great restaurant around. It is on a pedestrian street, so it is very quiet. We walked everywhere. Breakfast was delicious with a good selection of items. Extremely clean, comfortable, and friendly. We very highly recommend this hotel.
Great lively location and very scenic”
Location on the old town of Zurich is amazing, but the cobblestone roads are not very easy to navigate when you have luggages.
Dear Jerson Thank you for taking the time for a short feedback. We have not missed your positive and praiseworthy words about our central location. We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Hotel Alexander so much and that you share your experience with future guests. We are already looking forward to your next visit, Best regards from Zurich, Rina and the Team-Alexander.
Fantastic location ans very cosy rooms”
The place was excellently located within walking distances to the central train station and right in the middle of the city. Staff were friendly and the rooms cosy for the price. Breakfast selection was slightly limited but still ok in comparison to the price point Overall i love the place and will be back for sure
