Great located and friendly service

by klapsta on 16 Oct 2016 (Couple Traveller)

We stayed in one of the large rooms. The beds were very comfortable and we straight away good additional pillows. The bathroom is great with nice shower. The hotel is in walking distance to all the sights and different areas and as you would expect this comes with traffic noise. When closing the window the noise is reduced to minimum but rooms are quite warm so we had the fan on in October! We were allowed to checkin early without a problem as room ready. Dinner in the evening was very ta...

Visiting Zurich after a 40 year absence

by NancyZanios on 02 Sep 2016 (Couple Traveller)

Hotel Helvetia is charming and well decorated with interesting pieces. The rooms are small but comfortable with nice linens and Kiehl products. No air conditioning on a hot night made the room a little too warm, but they did have a fan. The windows opened helped cool it off but then you hear the traffic. The restaurant is small and filled with locals. The hotel is right on the river. You can easily walk to the main part of Zurich or take the tram that stops almost in front.

Clean but room very small and with no air conditioning. Very nice and helpful staff. Lovation perfect for business travellers. Will stay here again. If only staging s couple of days it's perfect but in the heat of the summer could do with air con. Loved the Kehils bathroom toiletries

Good hotel in central Zurich

Overall a very good hotel, however some things stand out, booth positively and negatively. Our room (#52) was very spacious and even included a small kitchen (which we did not use due to lack of time). Very nicely designed interior. Kiehls bathroom products are great. There was however no proper ventilation in the room, it seems like the hot...

Hip hotel - not luxe if that's what you're also looking for...

by HedgehogLondon on 28 Aug 2016 (Family Traveller)

Atmospheric hotel with character decor; there is a masculinity in the generally black-and-white colour scheme. Check out pictures to see if you like it since I sense that it may not be for everyone (for me, rooms are way too dimly lit). Hip but a 4-star hotel at its core - so don't expect smooth quality bed linens, comfy mattresses or plush white towels. You pay for the hip factor rather than in-room comforts and attention to details, which are important to me so I didn't have a great stay. Very...
