    Beautiful hotel in a lovely location in old Zurich. Easy 10 minute (swiss walking time) 20 minute (American with too much luggage walking time) from the Zurich main station. After two weeks in small country BnBs through out Switzerland it was a refreshing pleasure to be met with the comfort of this hotel. The Jr. Suites are spacious and well appointed. The staff was friendly and attentive. The computer and printed available to the guests was helpful for printing boarding passes, etc. There is an abundance of cafes, restaurants and bars just steps away.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Adler Zürich

    Great location and staff


    We wanted to stay somewhere typically Swiss whilst in Zurich and having read the other users reviews and having visited the Hotels own website we decided upon the Hotel Adler.

    We were not disappointed.

    Switerland was having a mini-heatwave on our visit so the comments about lack of air-conditioning are valid and were the only downside to our stay.

    Passing locals/tourists means the location is quite noisy but the soundproofing is fabulous and with the windows shut you could not hear any outside noise.

    The staff were all very helpful and friendly. We ate in the Adlers own restaurant which was really excellent and traditional.

    Breakfast was Continental Buffet-style with hams/ cheeses/ breads/ cereals/ juice/ fruit/ yogurt and with very good coffee served to the table by lovely staff.

    Rooms were spotlessly clean and simply but nicely furnished with fabulous murals on the walls depicting Zurich landmarks.TV with lots of channels and languages. Free internet too which was a bonus.

    Apart from the lack of air-con the Hotel Adler was truly very good and also at a great price for the location/food and service. Excellent.

    Adler Hotel Zurich


    We stayed in the Adler Hotel for 3 nights and really enjoyed the location. The hotel itself is older and definately not fancy, but very clean. The staff was always friendly and the breakfast was free and very good. It's located right in the middle of Zurich along a cobblestone street with shops lining the street so you can walk everywhere. One block away is the train system where you can catch a train to anywhere in the city, but we walked everywhere. I definately recommend this hotel to explore Zurich from. We took a one day tour of the Heidi-land and Swiss alps and that was very good too. All this can be arranged at the main train station, about a 10 minute walk away from the hotel.



    My wife and I spent one night at the Adler as we were driving back from Italy and flying out of Zurich the next morning. Given only one short night I saved the money vs. some of the towns more expensive properties. The Adler is a good location once you find it. I couldn't locate the street on a map, a half a dozen locals had never heard of it when asked and once located a small detail; no cars (in old town) or on property parking. The front desk said we could drive up for a few minutes and drop bags off then park across the river in a parking garage. No on staff bellman. Had a junior suite over looking square. Room was clean but average. I will pick another place when in town.

    Enjoyable stay


    The Adler is in a great location for getting around Zurich. Close to the train station and in a very picturesque part of the city. The hotel also offered a shuttle to the airport, which was great because by the end of the trip we were tired of hauling our luggage to and from train stations. The room was nice and clean- almost spacious by European standards. The Adler is located in a busy square so the soundproof windows were a plus. The only negative was that shutting the windows was necessary to be able to sleep- people walking on cobblestones and church bells every 15 minutes- and that meant there was no air! In August it got fairly uncomfortable in the room quickly. Earplugs would be a solution! The hotel restaurant was great for local food- fondue and raclette.

    Great Little 3 Star Hotel


    Stayed here in July, 2004 for 1 night and really liked it. Don't expect 5 star amenities - soap comes from dispenser on bathroom wall. However, they do put a nice piece of chocolate in the pillow. Bed is very comfortable, though a queen is two twins pushed together.

    Great location in Old Town. Noise from street was completely blocked once the window was closed.

    Internet access is free, but computer is in a podium so you have to stand while using. Makes people get off quickly.

    Lovely breakfast and nice front desk staff.

    Great location, forgettable rooms


    I was struggling to determine where I wanted to stay when I visited Zurich, particularly in light of the exorbitant prices for rooms in Switzerland. This hotel seemed to receive consistently great reviews and the price was reasonable ($130, or 160 CHF). Without a doubt, you couldn't ask for a better location for this price. I had dinner at their fondue restaurant on the ground floor and it was excellent. The room was very clean but also very small. Unlike many European hotels, this one fortunately had an elevator. There weren't many amenities available (particularly in the bathroom---bring your own shampoo!) but it was comfortable. I found it mildly noisy, but that's just because there was a Euro Cup soccer game the night I was there.

    I guess the one thing to take into consideration is that Zurich is a relatively small city, and of all the hotels I considered, I chose this one because of its reputation for being in such a great location. There's certainly truth to this claim, but the other hotels without that reputation ended up being no more than a 5-10 minute walk from this hotel anyway. If I return to Zurich, I'd gladly consider staying here again, but if I can get a room for $50 less elsewhere, I'll probably stay at the cheaper hotel and spend the money I saved on fondue at the Adler Hotel's restaurant.

    Excellent Hotel - a Unique Gem


    An excellent hotel, strongly recommended, good value and a unique gem.

    Stayed at the Adler in May 2004 and it was a perfect choice for our first visit to Zurich.

    Normally book a four-star and the Adler is rated as three, though I'd seen lot's of very positive reports before my booking. But, I had some apprehension from a couple of slightly opposite remarks. Having now stayed there my view - great hotel, strongly recommend you go to the Adler.

    Location is ideal - equidistant from the lake, the shops and the station (just 10 mins slowly trundling cases between station and hotel). It's sited on the corner of a very nice, photogenic square in the cobbled old-town area (not sleazy). It's a particularly good location for the evening as there are lots of restaurants (outdoor and indoor, and covering all price ranges) within a couple of hundred yards; numerous bars as well.

    Hotel itself has a top specialist fondue restaurant. That's not our thing, so we had breakfast only in the restaurant - it was excellent, lot's of choice and a very nice setting (no, there's no smell of cooked cheese each morning).

    Rooms are stylish and clean; we felt the junior suite was excellent value and spacious. The bathroom was sparklingly white and the huge murals on a wall of the bedrooms are a designer feature of the hotel - great.

    We found the hotel very pleasant and quiet. With the window open there was a nice bubble of conversation from the outdoor bars (unwarrantedly, I'd feared loud discos) and there was the wonderful sound of the Zurich's clock-towers tolling their bells. Heidi the painted, plastic cow brings a smile to your face when you see her on a first-floor balcony, honest!!

    Friendliness of the hotel staff was top-notch and overall service was excellent.

    The Adler's website is interesting and accurate - and its own internet booking service worked well.

    Nice place


    I only stayed at the Adler for one night, but I had no complaints. I read the other review that complained about noise and lack of a/c.

    Well, let me tell you, I went for a walk at 10pm and stayed out until 2am. There is clubs and bars around there. Lots to do. There is noise everywhere in that area, not just at The Adler. I used ear plugs and had no problem sleeping. I went in Oct. so it was cold, no need for a/c. The room was clean and nicely priced. The hotel is centrally located to food and shopping. There is even a McDonalds right there for the less daring eaters. There is a market just across the river by the train station. I very much liked The Adler and would recommend it.

    Great location, but beware of noise


    The Hotel Adler is a charming hotel in a great location. The only problem was the late night noise from the restaurant and bar behind the hotel. It got worse in the early morning hours when a man was sweeping hundreds of beer bottles below our window. We heard the bottles shattering as he swept them for almost an hour. Other than than that, the room the was very nice, breakfast was better than expected and the staff was very helpful and friendly. Maybe staying at this hotel at a slower time of year and not on a Saturday night might be the solution to the noise problem.

    Noisy at the Adler


    The Adler is a nice, clean hotel in a wonderful location. Easy access to buses, trains, and old-town Zurich. Staff was friendly but not very helpful in our trip planning.

    It has one major problem. It is in the busiest place in all of Zurich and the noise starts outside at about 10:00 PM and goes until 2:00 AM in the morning. The noise picks up again at 6:00 AM when they start cleaning the area outside the Adler. There is no air conditioning so you have to keep your windows open to stay cool. Due to the noise we never got much sleep.

    The noise is probably not as much of a problem outside of summer. Think twice before staying here inthe summer.

This is the area on either side of the river that runs through the city from the north end of Lake Zurich.

It's a town full of boutiques where well heeled tourist can stroll in the afternoon sun browsing. As part of the canton of Ticino, it's the wealthy Italian part of Switzerland and cost of living is high.
