    Very good

    Very clean, centrally located, comfortable beds, and nice bathroom. Staff were helpful.

    No mini fridge and no AC. Fortunately, it wasn't hot while we were in Zurich.

    Fabulous

    I really enjoyed the location of the guesthouse. The room met all requirements. It was tidy, very clean and everything was in good condition. Despite the central location of the hotel, I thought there was little noise in the evening. Overall, I had a pleasant stay in the Alexander guesthouse.

    It would be a nice service to provide internet connection free of charge also in the guesthouse.

    Very good

    Very clean, close to train station 7 minute walk

    Breakfast not included and the additional cost would cover an upgraded hotel

    Very good

    Clean room, helpful personnel, proximity to the city centre

    Noise from the street in the room, lack of airconditioning, small beds, extremely slow non-free Internet, expensive breakfast.

    Good

    It hasn´t wi-fi. When we make the reservation, we were not told that breakfast was not included nor that there was not wi-fi. This information must be in the web page.

    The location is very convenient, the price is very acceptable. Very clean and cosy room. If I go to Zuerich again I will choose this guesthouse.

    Fabulous

    The reception were very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. They let me use the wireless internet in the lobby for free, and looked after my luggage for 12 hours after check-in. The room was clean and the bathroom was a good size considering the room price. Great location in central Zurich though it could have been noisy facing the front (street) - my room faced the side and was quiet.

    Breakfast was plentiful (buffet) but shame nothing cooked (warm). The again, as a continental breakfast, it was fine.

    Superb

    Good location, nice clean room, helpful staff, excellent value for the money

    The only little concern is that the lift in the guesthouse is really tiny.

    Good place, good service and good price - what else?

  • 7.8
    Fabulous

    very friendly staff (especially the gentleman who came to meet us at across the street), bed was comfortable. Clean. Great location!

    the sign pointing to hotel front desk was totally misleading. It creates great inconvenience for someone with a lot of luggage. Rooms are not exactly sound-proof - you can hear squeaky floor over your head.

    Exceptional

    Many thanks for Hotel owners and staff. I have spent my b est time in Zurich.

  • 7.8
    Fabulous

    Location is super-convenient and quiet, room was spacious and clean, the staff were consistently helpful, free use of online computer in the hotel lobby. And, for Zurich, not too expensive...

    Doors to interconnecting room should be sound-proofed -- I was lucky, noisy people there only on one of the nights, & they did respond to gentle protest... And it would have been nice to have an armchair. I didn't try the breakfast, which sounded expensive -- plenty of cheaper places nearby for that.

    Very good

    Excellent location, basic room, nice bathroom, friendly reception girls, way cheaper than any other hotel nearby. I'd definitely recommend if you don't want anything fancy. I can imagine it might get a bit noisy on weekends, but there was no disturbance during our stay (mon-thu)

    Bring your own pillow. :)
