December 8th flying to. Zurich today. Getting anxious. After 2 hr delay due to weather and having the plane de ice, we left at 9 pm instead of 7 pm. Arrive at 11am instead of 840am. After a shower will go out and see the sights. Believe it or not, we have more snow then they do. Weather is great, not to cold but not to warm. And everything is green …

Kev said the seafood was great Friday June 15th -we eloped!!! we had a great …
After visiting Linderhof Castle we started the drive to Zurich. We have had somewhat of a difficult time navigating out of cities to go the correct direction we want to go. We were planning on driving through Germany to get to Switzerland but got on the highway going the wrong way and when we figured it out we were in Austria so we just decided to …

Our Swiss air flight had us arriving at Zurich airport on time as promised and as expected.
It is no coincidence that Swiss watches and punctuality go hand in hand. Tony
exchanged our remaining Euro into Swiss franc and we set to hail cab into the
city of Zurich. Our ride was both pleasant and …
Woke up to sun but a much cooler temperature than we have been having...my tootsies were freezing...only problem is that when we left the UK I hadn't thought about coming back at the end of September when it would probably be cooler, and I only took my flip flops!... You still wearing yours chicken? Left this lovely site and set off towards Ottenbach, our second stop in Switzerland. Haven't got to travel too far today. To get ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Continental Zurich Zürich
We stayed 2 nights in July. Arriving by car, it was quite difficult to find the hotel - not helped by bad-tempered local drivers with a "you ignorant foreigner - why don't you know which lane to drive in?" mentality. Even worse than London!
Got an upgrade
We had booked our standard room online with a rate of 235SF including breakfast and were very surprised when we were upgraded to a suite! We had a big bedroom and a big living room with a couch and a chair and a desk area, two TV's and a beautiful bathroom -- well actually two bathrooms, since the toilet was separate from the sink, tub and shower (around the corner even which was rather odd). The front desk staff was very helpful with directions and tram tickets. The breakfast was excellent, with eggs made to order included. The bed was great and we slept better than our previous five nights in Paris. The location is a bit away from everything, but it was quiet. The tram stop is almost directly in front of the hotel and you could easily walk from the train station as well.
Habe hier Anfang Juli 3 Nächte verbracht und hatte ein Deluxe Zimmer gebucht. Die Angestellten waren extrem hilfreich und freundlich. Das Zimmer war gepflegt und rech gross. Das Bett war bequem, vielleicht weil ich ein Deluxe und kein Standardzimmer hatte. Das Frühstück war in meinem Zimmerpreis inbegriffen und das Büfett hatte eine erstklassige Auswahl. Man konnte warme Gerichte wie Eier bestellen und musste dafür nicht extra bezahlen. Das Hotelzimmer hat tolle Annehmlichkeiten. Meine einzige Kritik ist, dass die Lage des Hotels nicht ideal ist. Es gibt eine S-Bahn Haltestelle 3 Minuten vom Hotel entfernt. Der Hauptbahnhof ist ungefähr 15 Minuten zu Fuss entfernt und man braucht 20-25 Minuten bis zur Altstadt. Nicht so nah am Trubel zu sein, kann auch ein Vorteil sein, wenn man den ganzen Lärm und Verkehr nicht will.
Stayed here for 3 days in early July. Booked an upgraded deluxe room. Staff was extremly friendly and helpful. Room was well kept and size was generous. The bed was very comfortable. It may be because I booked a deluxe vs. standard room. Breakfast was included in my room rate with a cold buffet with excellent selections. Hot items, e.g., eggs, baked beans etc. may be ordered at no extra charge. Excellent amenity supplies in room. The only draw back about this hotel is its location which is slightly off. There is a tram stop nearby about 3 minutes walk from front entrance. Otherwise, the main railway station is about 15 minutes walk at leisurely pace or 20~25 minutes to the old town. Not being so close is also an advantage too, depending on what you want, without all the noises and traffic.
Nice subtle friendly hotel
Its a nice hotel, conveniently located 5 minutes walk from the main shopping district.
The hotel does not have a airport shuttle. So instead of taking the cab from the airport, go for the 'big ben' bus which charges 10francs/person.
Avoid the sofitel chinese restaurant: expensive. Found a fly in my meal, terrible response from the host interms of customer service.
Greek cafe opposite the hotel and some restaurants down the street are a better bet.
Railway station 5 minutes walk to from the hotel, great for quick day trip to geneva( where i spent 2 nights, but did not think was worth it)
I stayed Saturday night 7 May 2005. The hotel is a square block about 10 minutes walk from main railway station, itself just 10 minutes by S-bahn (local train) from the Airport. The hotel is in a main street, with trams running outside. It is built round a small internal courtyard. My room 427 was looking out on side street. Room was well furnished, with a compact bathroom. Bedroom was relatively small too but adequate. Beds had quilts. Lighting was good. Airconditioning functioned fine and the noise insulation was effective. Breakfast on 1st floor could be either full buffet CHF 32 or a light one for CHF 20 which was very good. On same floor was dining room and a bar. There is no pool in the hotel and business centre consisted of one laptop PC facing ground floor reception which I discovered only on check out. I paid CHF 170 for the room. A good functional hotel where I would stay again
I recently stayed at the Sofitel and was pleasently suprised. The location is great because you can walk to the major tourist attractions. The rooms were very nice and the beds comfortable. The hotel staff was courteous and able to answer our questions. In the morning the buffet breakfast was delicious but quite expensive. Overall I was very pleased and would definately return again.
I really enjoyed this hotel. I stayed here in early November 2004. It was only a 5 minute walk from the Zurich HB. Definitely very covenient to the Hofbahnstrasse and the Zurich Old Town. You could walk to Zurich west if you really wanted to althought that would have been about a 20 minute walk down the river.
I completely enjoyed the rooms as it was the right size for a couple. The bathrooms colors were cherful (wood with off-white tiling) were very modern. The room had a queen bed with TV, desk, big closet, and safe. It was quite modern and there were no signs of age. While we didn't need A/C, it did have it. The elevator, lobby, and hallways were pristine. The reception and room service people were quite accomodating. I would defiinitely stay here again.
Ich fand dieses Hotel klasse. Ich war hier Anfang November 2004. Es ist nur 5 Minuten vom Züricher Hauptbahnhof entfernt und in einer tollen Lage um zur Hofbahnstrasse und zur Altstadt zu gehen. Man kann auch nach West Zürich gehen, aber das dauert zu Fuss am Fluss entlang schon 20 Minuten.
Good place to stay when visiting downtown Zurich
Stayed here for two nights Oct 2004. Rooms are small in typical European fashion, but all was immaculate, in typical Swiss fashion. We had an issue with our first room in that the plumbing was not working. We were quickly switched to a new room and the porter came to carry all our luggage to the new room. My one complaint was that the king size bed mattress was very weak and we both had backaches in the morning. Was only here for two night so I did not request a new room, but I'm sure if I had it would have been quickly accommodated. Common areas are very nice and access to the train and downtown sites is fabulous. Was able to walk everywhere. I would definitely stay here again.
