Sorell Hotel Rütli

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The reception staff was fabulous. I checked in late in the evening, and they were waiting and ready for me. I was upgraded to a king size room, and given a "late check out". The hotel is located in the Old City, and very close to the train station. It is easily walkable to the station (two blocks) but with luggage, you may prefer a cab. The hotel supplied me with free internet,and guided me through the wi fi security. I was loaned an adapter to charge my phone, and the staff was easily the best I met in Switzerland. Breakfast is included, and was very nice, with lots of homemade breads, jellies, eggs, yogurt and cereals. While pricey, I felt the room was a good value, particularly with the willingness to allow me a late check out without charge.

This was nicely located, close to the train station and also good restaurants, shopping, etc. Not too far from the university.

I like this hotel. Stayed here now 2x. Very good staff (accommodating). Super fast Internet (upload as well). Great location. Rates/value vary but usually for in/out of town can't be beat. Always keep them in mind when coming to ZRH.

Check-in was easy and the staff were really friendly. The room was clean and the amenities were up to par. Great value for your money in an expensive city. If I return I will consider this hotel....

This hotel is in a great location. Very close to the train station and within walking distance of museums and restaurants. The A/C is a bit weak so you may be uncomfortable if it's summer.

great location, super fast Internet (upload as well), easy access to everything. I will return.

good breakfast, great location. rooms is clean and modern.

Everything is wonderful,location,staff.room.food i will stay again in this hotel in the next time thanx for all reciptionests who are more helpful and kind

This is my first time to go to Zurich. I just booked the hotel on my phone. Hotel location is very good. It is easy to go anywhere. very close to the main station. Also, it is close to Limmat river.

Great stay: welcoming staff, comfortable room and great shower. But the real plus is the position, at a short walk from the train station, which is perfect both to go out and also reach the airport quickly.

the hotel location is excellent, near to the main station, shopping area, the lake... the staff is very friendly...the room is so comfotable and its space is very good

Even though it is not next door to railway station, it is just a 5 min walk away so no need to take a bus. Hotel is decent and boutiqueish. Nothing fancy but very clean. The side that is not facing the road is not necessarily that quiet at night since it is not too far from the bar scene.

great location and I got a great price for Zurich.

I was passing through Zurich on one night stay and could have asked for a more perfect location, hotel and staff. Without a doubt, I will be staying at this hotel chain again.

Overall it was a pleasant stay. It's well located with regards to transportation, and the minute you step out of the hotel you are faced with dozens of bars and restaurants. We did not have a problem with noise though, despite the lively surroundings. The room was comfortable, clean, and had everything we needed. We stayed in a lot of hotels throughout Switzerland and we found the breakfast options to meet the standards that we had seen elsewhere - cheese, cold cuts, a variety of breads, yoghurt, juice, etc.
