How has this hotel rated in the past?
Hotel Krone Unterstrass was a hotel located 15 minutes walk from the centre of the old town and 5 minutes by tram. The hotel was clean and comfortable and the staff were friendly. We did have some trouble getting our room when we arrived but seeing as check in was not until 2pm we could not complain too much. Rooms were not huge but not the smallest we had seen. The website did say that the rooms all had timber floors but ours still had the carpet. Overall it was a good hotel with a tram stop right out front so the distance to the old town and train station was not a problem. We would probably stay here again if in Zurich.
