Historical Traveler Reviews Arlette Am Hauptbanhof Hotel Zürich
Great hotel, excellent value
Very pleasant experience.
Very close to the railway station. Superb rooms - clean and comfortable, nice bathroom, quiet.
Efficient and helpful if somewhat reserved staff (they must have been Swiss, lol), they even gave each of us an umbrella for our trip to Lucerne on a rainy day.
All in all, we would definitely come back with pleasure if we are ever back in Zurich.
Tolle Lage, anständiger Preis
Wir haben im Oktober 2005 im Bahnhof TI dort eine Nacht gebucht und wir wurden angenehm überrascht. Vom Bahnhof läuft man ca. 7 Minuten zum Hotel. Dieses ist klein mit freundlichem Personal und komfortablen Betten. In die Altstadt, wo es viele Restaurants gibt und wo abends viel los ist, kann man in 5 Minuten hinschlendern. Das Frühstück war über dem Durchschnitt. Wir hatten Glück mit dem Hotel, vor allem wenn man bedenkt, dass wir erst spät und ohne Reservierung in der Stadt ankamen.
Preis-Leistung gut, Lage großartig
Wir waren Ende Mai 2006 im Arlette am Hauptbahnhof. Das Wichtigste in Kürze. Zimmer: waren klein, aber sauber und komfortabel. Lage: vom Hotel kann man zu allen bekannten Sehenswürdigkeiten zu Fuß laufen. Sehr praktische Lage zum Bahnhof. Viele Restaurants in der Nähe. Service: das Personal war hilfsbereit und freundlich und sprach auch Englisch. Frühstück: Kaffee und Brötchen, alles andere kostete extra. Insgesamt ein gutes Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis und wenn ich das nächste Mal in Zürich bin, werde ich sicherlich wieder dort absteigen.
Good Value, Great Location
We stayed at the Arlette am Hauptbahnhof in the latter part of May 2006. In a nutshell:
Rooms: Small, but clean and comfortable.
Location: Walking distance to the main attractions of Zurich. Very convenient to the train station. Plenty of good restaurants nearby.
Customer service: Helpful and friendly. English spoken.
Breakfast: Coffee and rolls. Anything in addition is an extra charge.
All in all, I thought it was a good value and would stay here again should I find myself in Zurich.
Great location, reasonable cost
We booked our one night October 2005 stay at the hotel through the train station TI and were pleasantly surprised. It is about 7 mins. walk to the hotel from the station. The hotel is small with friendly staff and comfortable beds. It was an easy five minute stroll to old town where there is a lively nightlife and good restaurants. The breakfast was above average. It was a lucky find considering we arrived in town late in the day with no hotel reservations.
Stayed at this hotel for two nights early July.It was a very nice stay.The double room we had was comfortable.The washroom was clean and overall the room was very tidy.The staff are very friendly and The location is great .A good stay in a nice hotel.
Clean, but small
This hotel is clean and cozy. Nice breakfast and wonderful staff. Extremely small rooms though...if you are planning to spend any significant time in the hotel room, you should look elsewhere. If you plan to be out and about as I was..then it's perfect.
Great Location, Very Hospitable Staff, but Very Small Rooms
This hotel is centrally located a stone's throw across the Limmat River from the Hauptbahnhof (Zurich's main train station). It is also close to the Swiss National Museum and the restaurants, bars, and shops of Niederdorfstrasse. Moreover, it is not too far away from Bahnhofstrasse, Zurich's main shopping throughfare, and the shore of Lake Zurich. The hotel itself is small, very small. Even the elevator is just a little bigger than a sardine tin. The rooms, despite the lack of space, are cozy and comfortable. What the hotel lacks in size, the staff members more than make up for it with their hospitality. Breakfast, included with our room, consisted of rolls and free coffee and juice in the hotel's restaurant (a regular continental breakfast). Eggs and other items are available, but for an extra charge. Overall, it is a nice place to stay where the people will really look after you.
Clean, Friendly, Convenient
This is a clean, small and friendly place. Nice staff. Small but comfortable rooms. Veryconvenient to shopping, eating and especially the train station.

... buy your train ticket. So we waited patiently at the light with a few other cars and when it turned green we got in line and drove our car right onto the back of a flat-bed train car designed to transport us up and over this mountain pass with no roads. It was a pretty crazy experience since we just stayed in the car, turned the engine and lights off and got to ride on the back of a train for about 30 minutes. It was certainly a little scary at times (especially ...
... ago.... yep... never happened. My adventure was successful and I then tried my hardest to find a decent asian noodle restaurant in the city to no avail since I was for some reason craving them, but I had to settle for a kebab as cheap and fast was what I wanted after wandering around for awhile. I almost went out that night with a guy from my hostel after we had a couple beers together but lost my energy ...
A walk down to the water front encouraged us to get on a 1.5 hour boat tour around the lake which, again, had fantastic views of the Alps. It was a great experience, even with the crazy wind outside on the boat.
They had to catch a flight, so we said our goodbyes and I went shopping to find myself a fondue pot to bring home as a nice souvenir from my incredibly memorable time in Switzerland!
Today Cheryl decided to miss Mount Titlis. Lucky for her it was a brilliant but claustrophobic and acrophobic experience. We shopped in the morning and then went to Mount Titlis. The weather was fine and sunny. The snows that fell in early December are melting and the fields on the way to the mountains were green. We are having tea at the hotel and then bringing in the new ...
After Munich I took the train west, through Austria, to Zurich. Matthias, who I studied Spanish with for a month in Guatemala, lives there and offered to put me up while I was looking around Switzerland. He has lived in Japan too so we have a lot in common. He's an engineer and oh so Swiss. We used to go to salsa nights in Xela and you could see him counting out each step.
Straight off the train silly me didn’t realise I had to use Swiss Francs ...
