      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.

      Excellent breakfast.

      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.

      Very nice


      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.

      ... the traditional guilds of Switzerland and where to get the best Swiss hot chocolate. Our tour ended at the Cathedral and after a quick snoop in the church we headed for lunch. Lunch was insanely expensive and all we ordered was a bowl of soup and a small charcuterie board. It took a good half an hour for us to come down from the shock. To calm our nerves we went for leisurely walk along Lake Zurich. It is a huge lake and the grounds surrounding it are pristinely maintained. The ...

      ... we followed the signs to our gate which led us to a train/subway like thing in the airport. On the trolley, we heard strange noises like cow bells and mooing. And at one point on the wall outside there was a bunch of pictures that when we moved passed made a movie while the train made a yodelling sound. We arrived at our gate just in time after admiring the Swiss chocolate (which ...

      Julie has forgotten to mention the ice cream. Julie may find Cartier but I seem to find all the cake and ice cream shops, not to mention the chocolate shops! The ice cream is beautiful. We finished our dinner off with glacé (ice cream), Julie shared mine - see how generous I am! We finally managed to get our extra pillows, so tired with the days excursion, well fed and topped off with a nice wine, I am sure we will both sleep ...

      We travelled over to Lucerne via the Zentralbahn, which seems to be a special line on the Swiss railway system. I suspect this may be because it uses cogs for some sections, can't be sure, but we did go up and down some very steep hills, and there appeared to be a cog track in the middle of the rails for those sections. We had panoramic 1st class tickets, and its definitely the off season, as we were the only people in our carriage ...
