Come in, Sit down and Relax Here.

We were just there for one night on a quick stopover and found this Hotel to be very modern and cozy and convenient. The service was excellent, warm and very friendly and I would absolutely refer this place to anyone coming through Zurich. The room was so welcoming and inviting. The only downside was that the duvet was a little small for the bed and the beds were stiff, but that's a personal preference. I can't say enough good things about the staff, though! They were superb!

This location closes shops early on weekend nights, but the Carvery next door was open and the restaurant Hot Pasta just down the hill was tasty, reasonably priced, very cozy and friendly.

A Very Nice Hotel

A really central location, 20 mins walk from the city centre and almost by a tram stop. Very useful for travelling in the city around the area. Even though we were on a main road and right outside roadworks, they did not disturb us, and did provide some amusement. The hotel room was well equiped and very clean, and staff on the reception desk were very polite and helpful. This is a hotel I would recommend to anyone.

Get a travel pass. It allows travel on any public transportation, as well as reduced costs on some other forms of travel and museum entry.

Great Hospitality

Welcoming hotel staff and great HUGE breakfast make the Rigihof a best stay in Zurich. Great location except the noise of the tram in the front rooms.

Buy a day pass at the train station for use on the tram system. It's the best 8 francs you'll spend in Zurich. Super fast and reliable trams in Zurich make exploring the whole town do-able in a day.
