Novotel- terrible service

The hotel staff were non - responsive. I had reserved an executive room which was supposed to come with a free mini bar. We were there for 3 days and they didn't restock the mini bar. I called twice on the 2nd day and they finally restocked it in the evening, but after 2 calls on day3, I just gave up and they never restocked it. The bed was low and hard as a rock and the piloows were also hard and uncomfortable. This is an Accor chain hotel and rooms were$360/ night. Attached to this hotel is another Accor hotel called Ibis. Don't know what the rooms were like, but they only cost$125-$152/ night. The restaurAnt in the Ibis hotel was quite good and reasonable for Switzerland.

Money-saving tip: Long walk from hotel

Don't buy the Zurich pass for train/tram/boat/museum pass. The cost was $36/pp for 3 days and it was never checked on the train or tram. It was checked on the boat and most of the museum on the pass were free. The walk from hotel to train or tram was 2-1/2 blocks -OK when sunny , but not when it rains, and lots of road construction in the area, so walking at night was a bit sketchy.

2 night stay at Novotel West summer 2010

I was in Zurich on business and my boyfriend came along for pleasure. The hotel, as many have noted, is not in central Zurich, but its access to the train station is very close and Zurich HB is literally the next stop on the line so it's a quick and easy trip in to the city center. The area is marked by several industrial buildings where ships were once built, and the buildings have been redone into small clubs, eateries, cafes, and whatnot. We found while wandering that we were quite close to the river as well, and it was very hot while we were here so we went swimming in the river (strong current, so be prepared). Back to the hotel itself: The staff is extremely friendly, they speak English well and are helpful in suggestions for the nearest market, how to get from point A to point B, etc. We kept leaving our room keys behind in the room and they re-did new keys for us more than once without a problem or raising an eyebrow. The breakfast buffet is quite lovely and includes meats, fruit, cereals, hot prepared food, hard-boiled eggs, prosecco located conveniently next to a juicer where you can squeeze your own orange juice with oranges available right there...it's great! The staff tracks who comes and goes and lets you know if your breakfast is included or not, so there should be no surprises. The room was clean and had air conditioning. The AC was key because we were here during a heat wave. The one item missing for me was the availability of a power adapter to keep my laptop charged in the room. I guess I've been spoiled in the past, but I've never stayed somewhere where there wasn't one available in the room, or where you could call down to the desk and they'd bring one up and track it with your credit card in case you leave with it. We had to go buy one next door at the Ibis. Weird. Also, the check in time isn't until 3pm and our US incoming flight got in at 9am so we had to wait until late afternoon to get our room. There were none available for early check in. This wasn't too bad as we went into the city and did a little sightseeing, but we left our luggage behind and I wasn't entirely convinced it was safe. They put it at the side of the front desk and said the luggage storage was full, but I never saw them take any luggage to/from the back while we were there (and other bags were added next to ours), so I question whether there's luggage storage at all. They do put a tag on the bag so you have to match your tag to the luggage to get it back, but there's nothing stopping someone from grabbing your stuff and walking off while the front desk staff is busy doing other things. It was the same situation when we checked out in the morning but weren't leaving until later that day, bags next to the front desk, and other bags were there as well by the time we left. I was a bit worried because my laptop was in my carry on bag. I trusted the situation in the end and didn't incur any loss but I'm still wary of the set up.

Convenient and Comfortable

This was the last stop on a 5 city quick tour of central Europe. The room and hotel in general were quite comfortable and easy access to public transport getting you into the Old Town within 10 minutes. There are high quality restaurants across the quad. The closest tram is the Forrlibuckstrasse stop, which is frequently overlooked. The Hardbrucke train station and Escher Wyss Platz tram station areas are both currently (July 2010) under construction, but are navigable -- this construction was my only negative about my experience at this hotel. Also, the breakfast is quite nice with lots of options.

Novotel Zurich City-West

Exceeded my expectations. Very friendly staff, great breakfast, clean room and nice atmosphere. This was the far superior compared to rooms in Paris and Nice.

value alternative

Zurich was our flight transit location. we were searching for reasonable room rates with good access to downtown and the airport. The hotel provided clean modern rooms. Internet access for the nonbusiness traveler was helpful in checking on our next day flights. The staff provided helpful hints on using all day tram tickets to get to our dinning and shopping destinations.
