    Nice hotel, right in the middle of the Altstadt, exceedingly clean, small room but that's Europe!

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel du Theatre Zürich

    Prima Hotel in guter zentraler Lage


    Das Hotel liegt direkt hinter der Bahnhofsbrücke auf der gegenüberliegenden Limmatseite, keine 5 Gehminuten vom Hauptbahnhof entfernt. Im Hotel nach Möglichkeit nach den Zimmern zur ruhigen Straßenseite fragen, doch selbst die "lauteren" Zimmer sind sehr gut schallisoliert - zudem gepflegt und sauber. Das Frühstück im sehr schönen verglasten Frühstücksraum mit faszinierenden Blick auf die zur ETH Zürich im Minutentakt hinauf- und hinab fahrende Berg-Polybahn ist der Hotelkategorie angemessen, mit guter Auswahl.

    Das Hotel liegt zentral, alles gut zu Fuß zu erreichen. Nächstes mal werde ich wieder dort sein.

    Not bad


    We stayed here for only one night and had to leave very early in the morning so we didn't really spend too much time in the hotel at all. The hotel decor is pretty modern with a "space-age" feel to it. We did get upgraded to a "suite" which probably just meant that our room was larger and it had a couch so I'm not sure if my experience would have been the same if we had a regular room. Very clean and tidy - what you would expect of the Swiss.

    Nothing special


    I didn't like this hotel as much as other reviewers. The location is fine, although it's quite loud on both sides of the hotel (on side has lots of tram and car traffic, the other has only car traffic, so this is better bet). Rooms are minimalist, although I wouldn't say stylish. Bathroom is small and shower is tricky, as the showerhead is on the long end of the tub's wall, making it a challenge to keep one's balance while showering. Hotel staff at front desk seemed very unfriendly each time we saw them. We didnt' have breakfast since it costs extra - easier to walk around the corner to Starbuck's! Overall, I would say if you can get a good price, go for it. But skip it if you find something better -- there's nothing special about this hotel.

    A great hotel in the heart of the city


    A well located hotel a 5 minute walk from the train station. Rooms were recently renovated, great bath rooms, excellent water pressure in the shower. Theatre themed rooms with great photographs everywhere. Staff was very pleasant. Bed was very comfortable. Free internet in the hotel lobby across from check in desk. A great, affordable hotel in the heart of the city. Would definitely stay again.

    Excellent value


    We spent 2 nights in Hotel du Theatre. The location is just perfect - close to the train station and to the river. Our room was rather small but well furnished and the decor was very interesting. Breakfast is served in a very nice terrace and it is lovely. The staff is very helpful and friendly. They made a reservation for brunch for us and let us leave our luggage after cheking out till we were back from the restaurant. We had a very nice time in Zurich and would highly recommend Hotel du Theatre.

    Great Little Hotel!


    This is a great boutique hotel on the edge of Zurich's Old Town and just 5 minutes from the main train station. My cozy room on the fifth floor was quiet, very clean, and very modern--recently renovated and with an attractive bathroom. Rooms are decorated with celoprints from movie classics, and there are quotations from writers woven into the carpet and the breakfast china. The morning buffet for 15 SFr is a good value, and the staff is friendly and helpful. An excellent value for the money, especially on the weekends.

    Really, really like it


    I stayed in this hotel for a weekend, It was excellent, very modern, clean and well located. I would go back next time !

    OK, but avoid the street side


    We stayed in this hotel for one night due to the rave reviews we read on this website and its close proximity to the train station. The decor was as clean and bright as the previous reviewers have stated. It's a wonderful area to walk through in the evening where there are lots of restaurants and cafes.

    We were in Zurich on a day where daytime temperatures were in the 80s. Unfortunately, our room had an outside window that faced the street that had both a funicular and a streetcar line. There was a fan control, but that didn't seem to make any difference. We were tired after a day of traveling, so when we were ready for bed and realized how warm the room would be, it seemed too much to ask for a room change.

    We booked our room on line and I was under the impression that breakfast was included in the price. However, when we checked in, we were told that breakfast was going to be 15 CHFr per person. That on top of 195 CH Fr for the small room we were in.

    We ended up buying baked goods from the farmer's market and getting coffee for considerably less and more romantic as well!

    Very Modern, New, Clean, and Artsy


    My favorite hotel by far in Zurich. Located right next to the train station for easy access, also in the heart of town. It was very clean and modern on the interior. The tall slender shape of the hotel was accented by crystal clean glass and sleek chrome design. I felt like I was walking through the hall of a great music center. The lighting was soft and relaxing. The rooms were the best part. I loved the separate shower and bath (we got a junior suite--the best!). The shower door was clear glass. The fixtures were shined to a perfect gleam. The toiletries were extensive and very catering to our needs. We had bathrobes and more towels than we could use. The headboard on the bed was a shiny glass that lit up! There were various artist/actor themes placed throughout the room. A minimalist approach to design, yet with an artistic theatre flare. My favorite hotel on the trip. Highly recommended above all the other hotels in Zurich, seriously (and I've seen a lot)!

    Contemporary and friendly


    What a find. Great location in the city, but still very quiet. Lovely modern conteporary style. Breakfast was really nice. The staff were so friendly. English speaking, but willing to endulge my not-so-good German as I wanted to practice! I would definately stay here whenever I go back to Zurich.

    After leaving Munich at 12:30pm we take the train to Zurich. A 4 hour trip, we stock up on food and comforts as we board our cabin. We get a great view of the German and Swiss countryside as the trains takes us to the rim of the Bavaria Alps and the Black Forest. The Swiss side offers greater views of small towns and the unique ^ shaped roofed …

    Here we are in beautiful, beautiful Switzerland, and first impressions are excellent. On the airport transfer train, which takes you from arrivals to the baggage collection area, the loudspeakers broadcast typical Swiss sounds - bird song, cowbells, yodelling choirs, goats bleating - it was lovely and such a blood-pressure-lowerer after that …

    After a packing frenzy we headed to Marienplatz to shop and watch the Glokenspiel at 11 before taking the train from Hauptbahnhof central at 12.30. We bought very expensive pjs for joe from the "Myer" equivalent called galleria that runs under most of Marienplatz and some dangerous and expensive tweezers as well. The train trip proved enjoyable …

    ... is great. Ray's colleague offered to lend us his golf cart so we could explore the community a little easier. It seems like everyone here has a golf cart and anyone who we have talked to so far begins the conversation by telling us that we NEED a golf cart. I usually respond that I think that the bikes will be good enough. This is typically followed by a little chuckle and comment to the effect that that is what they thought too when they arrived. I should ...

    ... We saw the town hall, clock tower and the Spreuerbrucke (spreuer bridge- with the dance of death paintings). By this time we were so hungry we could eat a cheese fondue! So we did. We also tried a local dish called rostï, which is shredded potatoes baked with cheese and assorted toppings. We chose vegetables. Our server recommended a local white wine called Chateau des Lains, which was a perfect pairing for the cheese. We were so full ...
