Zurich Continental

Stayed at the Hotel on September 10 and 11 2010. The room was small compared to other hotels we have stayed in Europe. The A/c did not work properly and it would have been better to open the window but they did not open. We were charged alot to park there and got billed for the breakfast that we did not want. Cannot get the refund yet.

On the east side of the river we got better food and service than the higher priced area around the shopping.

Nice hotel, good location

This was a short overnight after arriving from Munich by car before departing in the morning for Chicago from Zurich Airport. The staff was helpful and courteous. The room was on the small side, but clean and comfortable. All of our requests where handled efficiently and accurately. The complimentary internet access was a plus.

Excellent weekend base

We chose the Continental due to its location being a 10 min walk from the station and handy for trams, the Old Town and all the city sights. Could not have asked for more. The staff were excellent from the minute we arrived. Very helpful and so willing to help us find our way about and offer suggestions for restaurants etc. Even better we were upgraded to a deluxe room which was spotless and very comfortable with complimentary chocs, fruit, water and bathrobes. The personal welcome notes left by the manager were a nice touch. The Zurich travel network is well known and you can get a No. 11 or 14 tram within 100m of the hotel and from there reach anywhere in the city. The 8 CHF day ticket is well worth it and is valid on trams, trains and river taxis, tho unfortunately due to the high level of the river when we were there the river taxis were not running. Zurich is a wonderful city and the people are great too, but when you buy something or eat out, take a deep breath before the bill arrive especially if you had wine ! Would go back anytime.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Use the Day Travel ticket, but beware it does not cover you out to the sirport or to the top of Utiberg which is the mountain overlooking Zurich. The Zurich Pass cover both these so may be a better option if you also like museums.

Solid hotel near the train station

Hotel Continental Zurich is about a 5-10 minute walk from the main train station (depending on how much luggage you are carting!) - which also means its a 10-15 minute walk to the main old city sights. The staff is friendly and speak English well. The hotel isn't cheap, but the rooms are nice (the standard double we stayed in wasn't large, but it was fine) and there is air conditioning (not freezing, but many hotels in Europe don't even having any!). Zurich is VERY VERY expensive, and finding a reasonably priced restaurant anywhere is near impossible. Breakfast is not included in the price of the rooms, and it was 32 Swiss Fancs (about $32) to add it on - RIDICULOUS!
