Amazing hotel”

Good location with very friendly staffs. Good range of selection for breakfast. I was surprised that complimentary drinks were available in the fridge. One downside was that soundproof of the room was not great. The hotel provided some earplugs though. Nonetheless, I would highly recommend the hotel.

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.
