Average

This was a nice hotel and was OK. We enjoyed the bathrooms which are really nice, however, the "queen bed" was simply two twin beds pushed together.

Great value

Great location if you are looking to save a few dollars. Zurich has an amazing public transit system and this hotel is just around the corner from a tram stop (Escher-Wyss-Platz) and a couple minute walk from the train station (Hardbrücke) which takes you to and from the airport. The airport is just two stops on the S16 train and takes only 10 minutes, however it only runs every half an hour. This hotel was perfect for us because we wanted something nice, clean and comfortable without breaking the bank. Having the tram stop right around the corner was bonus and you can be right in the middle of shopping and old town within 10 minutes. Also the staff was friendly, helpful and spoke fluent English. Would definitely stay at this hotel again.

A good night in Zurich

Everyone knows Zurich is expensive. Fortunately, it doesn't have to break the bank. The Hotel Senator was very reasonable (besides their additional breakfast if you so choose). The room is nice, clean and more then adequate. The staff was very helpful and friendly. It's location was right near a tram stop, but a bit far to walk with luggage from the main train station (we did it, but I wouldn't recommend it). It's in a fun area, and walking distance to the main sites to see.

Good value in Zurich

Whe stayed at this hotel in May 2014 for two nights. When planning our stay in Zurich we quickly realized that Zurich is very expensive and busy, so hotels tend to book quickly. This hotel is good value and much better priced than some of the more central hotels. While not right in central Zurich, it is still decently located. We walked from the hotel into central Zurich. It is very easy to find and is about a 20 minute walk. It is also close to a train stop, about a 5 minute walk if you want to take transit into the central train station, and also to the airport. The rooms were clean and comfortable, nothing fancy, and with a good bathroom. Another plus was that our room had air conditioning. If you have a room facing the street, it can be loud at night as there are a couple of night clubs nearby. If you have a car, they have a good secure underground parking garage, but it's not cheap at 20 francs per day; however this also seems to be the case at most places in Zurich. There is some street parking available nearby which is free at certain times overnight and weekends, we were able to park for free on the street for one night. WIFI access is good in the rooms and is free. Breakfast is not included however and is pretty pricey at 22 francs per person.

Money-saving tip: In Hotel

Try not to have a car while staying in Zurich, parking is expensive and the city is easy to navigate by walking and public transit.

Cool and very professional

For a comfortable, quiet and harmonious stay in Zurich, you have a choice. Senator. As the name implies, it means sanity and rule of the law, plus the beauty of hotel preservation and rectitude. Excellent restaurant manager with a well sorted out menu, ideal for people of all ages. Try your luck . It quite good food. But make sure you register quickly. Its perfect price for a 5 star hotel in a 4 star window dressing.
