Great location, great value

Perfect location, 5 minutes from main rail station and Old Town. We arrived by train with luggages, so we took tram # 10 to get to hotel. For the rest of the trip, we took the short cut, just walked down a few stairs, then across the Walchebrucke to get to main rail station for our excursions. The walk back up to the hotel was more challenging because of the steep hill but we took our time and it was totally doable. The room is very clean. The room facing the street is noisy because of the trams stop. Ask for a room away from the street for better sleep. The middle age gentleman at the front desk very intentive to the guests. We enjoyed his service very much.

Just across the street, in the Comfort Inn building, there is a family owned Italian restaurant with very good food and wines. The price was reasonable, not expensive like other restaurants in Zurich, and the service was excellent. Try it out!

Mrs.

Room was nice, but smelled old. they tried to place scented bags the closet to cover the smell. We not too bad, but I did notice. Over all I would stay there again. It was clean and had a great location, with the bus transfers. , just outside the front entrace of the lobby.

Friendly and inviting

The Leonid has a bar called "The Crazy Cow." That gives you an idea of the sense of humor the management has. The room was small but comfortable. There is a tram stop directly in front of the Leonid, which goes to the Airport. Very convenient for coming in and leaving Zurich. The ride was about 30 minutes. (It's a shorter ride on the train.) We bought all-day passes for the tram almost each day we were in Zurich. The all-day pass gets you on the tram, bus, train, even on the funnicular (basically a cog railroad) - pretty much any public transportation in Zone 10 (Downtown Zurich). Even so, we walked kilometers each day -most of it up and down hills. Bring walking shoes!

a great hotel for the price

The hotel and staff were great and the location was near everything that we wanted to see and were able to walk to. The train station is five minutes away by walking and a real plus. The wifi did not work on our iphones but the free hotel computer was very adequate. And the staff were fantastic in helping us.

Decent

Flying into and out of Zurich, we stayed at this hotel twice. Each room was on the street side, and the first night in particular was very noisy, between the trams and people. Staff was friendly, helpful, very capably English speaking. Free internet available on limited basis. The hotel does charge $17 francs per person for breakfast. The location is about a ten minute walk uphill from the train station, but is also only a ten minute walk from the heart of old town, which has many shops, cafes, restaurants.

Fantastic location

Our hotel room was clean, tidy and on the quiter side. The location is great - close to old town and about 5 minutes walk from the main train station. The tram stops right infront of the hotel and is very convenient getting around. Staff were cheerful and very helpful. For a price it is a fantastic stay.

In a great location and very friendly

The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable and well cleaned every day. Only negative was the pillow but hey that's not a big problem. The Crazy Cow Restaurant and Bar was hilarious - the Swiss have a great sense of fun and it really shows here.

Swiss public transport is second to none and we found having a Swiss Travel Pass (for use on trains, buses, boats, trams) is invaluable. We hopped on and off at our will and it was delightful.
