Hotel Review: Hotel City, Zurich, Switzerland

Zurich: The cosmopolitan city by the water combines creative urban life with nature in all its glory. We were looking for a hotel which will provide us the Zurich richness in aesthetics. We needed a place to relax as well as a place where we can set up our virtual office too. And we found Hotel City which very much balanced our need of the hour, our traveling escapade and amenities to carry out our business work.

We stayed in Business Double Room. The hall and bedroom are large enough for 2 persons.  The room setting is simple but practical. Close the door between the two rooms and you have your personal office. 

Located on a very busy street, rooms are very well soundproofed from all the street noise

Lovely interior. Rich ambiance and an actual classic wooden piano for music lovers.


 A stone’s throw from the main rail station(Zurich HB) which connects you to the entire Swiss railroad network with easy access to Zurich Airport (ZRH). Tramline is right there. This hotel is right in the heart of downtown. Located in the main street full of shopping opportunities and restaurant options. If you do not want to dine in the hotel, opposite the hotel, there is a large supermarket Migros in which you can find fast food & restaurant. If you need anything outside normal Zurich business hours there’s a mall complete with a supermarket at the train station.

Löwenstrasse, The City Hotel’s street view

You can walk to almost everywhere from here, from the lake to the cathedrals and most of the landmarks. Zurich lake is at just 15 min walking distance. Places like Old Town (Altstadt), Bahnhofstrasse, Landesmuseum Zurich) and fraumünster zürich are within 10 minutes of walking.


A good Business hotel, room are provided with the tablet with tons of info about attractions around the area that was extremely helpful, with newspapers and magazines loaded on and other helpful links. Also pairs to the TV for films etc, good WiFi. Room is equipped with Coffee machine with coffee pods and minibar.  All basic amenities are provided. The other room i.e. the bedroom is very comfortable and elegant.                               

Business trip friendly:

The hall room in the type of room we stayed in is equipped with a spacious work area, the table, has more than one power plug for plugging laptop, etc. free Internet access and printer can be provided on demand. They have a bright conference room.


Hotel’s Experience

Hotel staff is very friendly, multilingual, and obliging. Upon entering one will notice that hotel lobby and escalator are a bit small and will make you doubt but trust us, the rooms are spacious.

Our Verdict

A hotel aligned to business people and discerning travelers, offering good value for money for a city like Zurich. A good essence mix of old and modern Zurich. Best location.  Easy commute to the city’s popular must-visit sites.
