It was in walking distance from Zurich HB and you get restaurants and grocery shops near by. Very convenient.

Cosy stay in Zurich old town

We had booked a short stay with the Alexander Guesthouse on our way back and we received a really warm welcome and a room upgrade! I should note that our upgraded room was actually at the Alexander Hotel (not the guesthouse) and we were even allowed to check in early. Notes: - staff was super polite and made us feel really at home - a very cosy experience overall. - modernly furnished room, big comfy bed, nice bathroom. Not very spacious but not too small either. Very clean. - complimentary coffee, filtered water and fruit at each floor - complimentary access to the Zurich Zoo (upon availability) - this was actually the highlight of our experience. - location is excellent, right at the heart of the old town, very close to the main station too. Despite the location, the room was very quiet. - great value given the hotel rates in Zurich. I recommend this place and would book again if I return to Zurich.

Convenient and efficient base camp for exploring Old Town

Location was very walkable for riverfront, cathedral, and lakefront activities. There were two twin beds and plenty of electrical outlets.

We were very well received.

Both the girl at reception and the man who does the general service were fantastic. We were very well received.
The hotel is very well located, the rooms are small and have no mini bar but we were warned beforehand.
The price is not far from the high prices in Zurich.

Nice and cosy stay

Nice and cosy stay
Really a nice place, that I enjoyed, even if I stayed only a night here. Pleasant staff, that make you feel a friend, not a guest there. Clean room, bath, bedsheets, basic hygienic things provided. Would have never expected this much, from a 2* facility! Pleasantly surprised 💖 Quiet place, perfect for exploring the heart of Zurich! Would definitely consider coming again 🥰

A rare bargain in Zurich!

A rare bargain in Zurich!
You don’t get a lot for your money in Zürich so this place is great value for money. Really well located in the middle of the Old Town, minutes from Tram, Train and Boat stations and surrounded by bars and restaurants it makes an ideal place to stay.

Rooms are quite basic, but comfortable - pillows are huge and soft, and bathroom has all essentials.

Staff were very welcoming and really helpful when I needed to stay a little time behind checkout due to a work issue!

Free coffee in reception is very good too!

The Alexander Hotel in Zurich is win!

VThe Alexander Hotel in Zurich is win.
It’s not as though I planned to stay long in Zurich, and in fact, we only needed a hotel for the first night of a longer trip. The Alexander Guesthouse and Hotel was convenient, centrally located in the old town, and just a walk from the Zurich HB (hauptbahnhoff, or central station). The location is the first point towards 5/5. Next is the service. Upon arriving, carrying at least one bag too many, I left my partner at a bench, while I went to check in. As I checked in with the front desk, they sent a man to collect her. He carried our bags (from around the corner, and down a block), and with a friendly smile, and great welcome brought our duffels and packs inside. The service was welcoming, and as they informed me that they’d given me an “upgrade” I was pleased to find our corner room on an upper floor, with a pleasant view of the small plaza below. An Alnatura grocer is situated right next to the hotel, which is also convenient. The area around the hotel is a pied a marché, where there are many shops, restaurants, and, as is the only real problem with Zurich, smokers.
But the hotel is a winner. Relatively inexpensive, well situated, and staffed with excellent people.

Best in Town

This is the best place you can stay in Zurich.
All the staff are friendly and helpful. Don't think, just book here. Believe me, you will enjoy it.
