tripadvisor Traveler Reviews
  • Harry J. P :
Outstanding value

For Zurich, this hotel is an outstanding value: clean rooms with good service and excellent breakfasts. About a mile from much of the shopping and restaurants of the old city, the area around the hotel is quiet and safe.

  • Toonyin : Singapore
Really good

Booked this online, not knowing Zurich, bit of a climb from station!Really new, staff great, bed very low, breakfast excellent. In beautiful part of city close to university. Not sure if value for money as Switzerland is very expensive but booked through Expedia.

  • CKBG :
Terrific location for university visits, good price, nice room

The real challenge in Zurich is finding a good hotel room for a decent price. While the Plattenhof is not the ideal solution, it is without doubt a perfectly acceptable stand-in until I someday find one better. Great staff, excellent location, good price (for Zurich). Clean and safe, while rooms are predictably a little cramped (hey, this is Europe folks).

  • LBC325 :
Very nice little place....

This is a small place near the university area. There are a couple of restaurants nearby and the old town area is walk-able. (Though a mostly uphill walk after dinner!) The room was small-ish but OK. The platform style bed was set very low to the floor which was uncomfortable to get into and out of, but slept well. The bath was shower only. The lighting was strange, but served the purpose. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the continental breakfast was fine. All in all, this was a good find and a reasonable price.

  • Dîna I : Paris, France
Rip off prices for fairly standard accommodation in Zurich

I stayed on for two extra days after a conference which had booked us in the hotel. I had queried in advance about the price, and was quoted 215 CHF and I thought this would be the total I would be paying. It was only on leaving that I realised I had overlooked a piece of information that was stating that the price was for a single night. I ended up paying 435 CHF for two nights. This is about $440 US or €400. In any other city in Europe (including London and Paris) I could stay at the same level hotel for four nights. I felt the price was a rip off, even though I was not deceived. Of course I paid my bill, but I would not like to return to Zurich and most certainly would be happier to book a hotel of this quality which would allow me a stay of four days for the same price:)
