      Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Wellenberg Zürich

      Great place to stay

      from

      Our family of 4 stayed at the Wellenburg in April. It is a perfect location in old town for walking to shops and restaurants. It is located on a little square so you do hear people walking by. It did not bother us. There is no noise from cars or busses..

      The duvets and the sheets were very nice, the shower, excellent and the breakfasts were great. The entire staff is very accomodating. I would highly recommend this hotel.

      Great Hotel, Great Location

      from

      We had been travelling around Europe staying in 4 and 5* hotels so were not sure what to expect but the Wellenberg was fantastic, no complaints. Rooms were clean and adequate size, staff were friendly, bar was nice, buffet breakfast had a really nice selection, the location was great - walking distance to everywhere. We didn't eat in the hotel (apart from breakfast) so can't comment, but we did have a fantastic fondue sitting outside the Hotel Adler opposite the Wellenberg! We would stay here again!

      FANTASTIC PLACE TO STAY

      from

      Stayed here for two nights Saturday and Sunday 18 and 19 March 2006. The hotel is in a lovely part of the old town and very central for everything. The hotel is very well equipped and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The room was lovely and the bathroom good although a little on the small side - but how long do you spend in the bathroom on holiday? The shower power was really good and all the toiletries and slippers supplied were great. Mini bar well equipped. The breakfast was good and plentiful and the hotel bar was warm and friendly. The Italian restaurant had some lovely food and drink and the staff were great fun. Chocolates supplied when bed turned down were much appreciated. Would definitely stay there again.

      Wonderful Hotel

      from

      We booked on Expedia for a Jan 2006 visit. It was in the perfect central location. In a pretty cobblestone square with pedestrian lanes radiating from it. In walking distance to everything on the tourist track.

      Friendly warm staff.

      Excellent room for the price. All new fittings in bathroom. Great shower pressure. Sound proof windows and doors, though you could hear a bit through the walls.

      Good breakfast included.

      Cute, intimate, comfortable hotel. Very pleasant stay.

      Super nice hotel

      from

      The best location in Zurich, in the center of old town on a pedestrian only street, and completely surrounded with restaurants, fast-food stands, small stores, and cinemas. It's about 10 minutes walk to the central train station, 3 minutes walk to the river, 5 minutes walk to the best shopping in Europe and to the biggest parking lot in Zurich (if you have a car).

      The hotel itself was excellent. Big conformable clean and fully equipped rooms. The hotel crew super nice and ready to assist at any time day or night. The breakfast buffet in the mornings was good, fresh, and plentiful. We stayed there for 4 nights and it was a good home away from home. The hotel has its own Italian restaurant (Cantina), a bar, and its own movie theater. There is also an Airport bus (Joker-bus) which has a direct door to door service from the airport to hotel and back every 30 min. 24 hours a day.

      If you are in Zurich for business or pleasure and you want to stay in a small(45 rooms)and conformable hotel this is the place to stay.

      Not a bargain, but well worth the price

      from

      Great location, but some rooms are small. Very good staff and manager. We thought rooms facing the square would be noisy, but things quiet down at night. Because of our concerns we were given a large rear room at the same price. Good included breakfast and bus pick-up for the airport.

      Wonderful gem and great location

      from

      my friend and i stayed at the wellenberg after trying to find a hotel when our original hotel was not what it had claimed... we walked in and were warmly greeted and given an excellent rate for our 3 night stay.... we were looking for a queen or king bed room and were concerned about noise from the square outside, and so they took us up to two different rooms that they had available and allowed us to pick our room... the room that we chose was very spacious and even though was on the square, was quiet with the windows closed... the hotel had a cooling system which we didn't even need because at night the room was cool and during the day we just left the windows open to cool the room off... their breakfast buffet in the mornings was phenomenal... the hotel is right in the old town of zurich and is located within walking distance of most of the sites to see in zurich... everyone was extremely nice and very helpful with tour information, restaurant suggestions, and general info... would stay again when in zurich...

      Comfortable rooms in a great location

      from

      I have just come back from a weekend break in Zurich. I booked my stay before reading the two previous reviews made and wondered if they had been staying in different hotels to have such diverse opinions. So, to put the record straight....

      The Wellenberg is in a lively, entertaining and colourful part of the old town, so don't be surprised if it get's a bit noisy. I stayed the last weekend of August and an annual street-party was being held. Despite double-glazing I couldn't cope with the live music in the square outside. Don't let this put you off though as this was exceptional! The large room was very well furnished, with plentiful wardrobe space, good lighting and a very comfortable bed. I had a shower room rather than bath. Once again roomy with top-notch fittings. Breakfast was served on the second floor with a large outside terrace should you prefer it. Plenty of choice on the buffet and served through 'til noon for the late risers. Tea or coffee is also available here to make yourself at whatever time should you wish. The management and staff have certainly paid attention to the details e.g. A knock on the door an hour after arrival to ask if everything was satisfactory, a board in Reception is up-dated every day with the weather forecast and yes, even a chocolate on the pillow when you return home in the evening! To sum-up, I think the team there provide an excellent service and I'd have no hesitation in recommending the Wellenberg to anyone. If you like a busy location with plenty going on, so much the better.

      Excellent location and professionally run.

      from

      I just returned from a three week visit to Switzerland and France. I stayed in about half a dozen places. The Wellenberg was my first hotel and it was the best. The location in the old town was near all the restaurants and a charming, historical part of town. But our hotel room faced a back part which was quiet and had a garden view. The room was large (by European standards). The best part was the enormous breakfast in the hotel which was generously supplied with eggs, breads, cereals, fruits, yogurts, coffee, juices, jams and sausages. They didn't skimp on food like most hotels. The staff was extremely kind and courteous. For example, when the front desk heard us coming down the stairs, they stood up and greeted us. Zurich in general is an urbane, clean and sophisticated city which retains its Swiss standards of fine transportation, education, culture, architecture, environmental excellence and politeness but also knows how to have a good time.

      Air conditioned rooms are not always needed--and when we stayed there in early July the temperature was mostly cool and we wore jackets at night.

      PRETTY BASIC AND NOT 4STARS

      from

      Very basic hotel with small rooms and definitely not worth a 4 star rating.

      Claimed to have air-conditioning but didnt eventuate in extremely hot conditions

      Overall very dissappointing and wouldnt recommend

So with that out of the way it was time for some lunch as we explored Zurich a bit.

I looked into one of the cheaper tourist tours of a walking tour to the Lindt chocolate factory OUTLET store.... 115 francs. Uh what?? Yeah let's just save that money for something not like a tour to a factory outlet chocolate tour. On the plus side... we watched a duck/bird for ...

      The carriage was very quiet, several people got off at Dijon and a lot of people seemed to sleep after that. There had been a couple of very good little kids on the train; one little boy and his mum set up in the carriage lobby for a while where there’s a toilet, the stairway, a couple of seats and baggage space and he had a dozen or more little figures set up on the seats and was having a great game talking to ...

      The end of our cruise has come and it's sad to say good bye to our new friends and our crew who have made our cruise so enjoyable. They have fed us and entertained us so well over the last seven days. Basel is our last port and our disembarkation point. We shared a taxi with Jackie and Arden to the SBB railway station and we went our separate ways, they continued on their holiday to Paris and Italy and we boarded our train bound for Zurich ...
