"Sophisticated elegance, warmth and privacy"
My husband and I only stayed 1 night, but it was perfect. Remarkably spacious, well-appointed and sophisticated room (#3B). The gracious welcome to the suite included 3 luxemburgerli, 2 apples, 2 Incan berries, a spray of red currant, Toblerone, peanuts, potato chips, and plenty of complimentary water and Nespresso coffee. The understated service was outstanding. Located on a peaceful side street within easy walking distance of main sites. I am already dreaming of a return trip to show my children. Truly one of my favorite hotels in the world.
"Excellent Hotel, Nice Location"
The staff is very welcoming and helpful. We stayed in a suite facing the rear courtyard and were pleased with the cleanliness and comfort. The hotel is in a quieter area near the lake, but easy walk to the old town area. Near the Enge train station (5 miniute walk), 20 minutes from the airport. The breakfast buffet was excellent, made to order egg dishes, etc. We did not have dinner here but the restaurant looked first class.
"Special Birthday Celebration Weekend"
Luxury boutique experience within walking distance of Zurich old town and Lake Zurich. From the moment we checked in we felt special and valued. Our Suite was spacious and beautiful with everything we needed including free drinks(except alcohol) and snacks. Loved the L'Occitaine amenities and purple themed decor throughout the hotel. Although there were other guests in the hotel we felt like we were the only guests. There are no long hallways to access your room, rather private access to the front door. The staff were super friendly and encouraged us to ask for whatever we needed. A great experience.
"Staying with 'old friend' "
If you are looking for a quite, private & unique place to stay in Zurich, one of 22 extremely private, luxurious and spacious suites in this small exclusive 5 star Boutique Hotel is the right answer. Close to lake Zurich. The rooms size are above average, very comfortable bed, and beautiful bathroom;) Breakfast was reasonably good. The name ‘ALDEN’ is derived from the old English word ‘Aldwyn’, which roughly means ‘old friend’. It was a good experience staying with 'old friend' ;)
"Elegant hotel in a great location!"
The Alden is simply a gorgeous hotel in a superb location, one block from Lake Zurich. If you want a luxurious boutique hotel experience the Alden delivers big time. The staff is very friendly and they even upgraded us to a suite! Bedding and bathroom was incredible. Decor was extremely tasteful in rich colors of taupes and purple. My only complaint would be that the air conditioner didn't cool the room adequately. It was hot and muggy on our stay in Zurich and I had a hard time sleeping because of the mediocre cooling system. This wouldn't be an issue during the cooler months. That is the only reason for not giving the Alden 5-stars. But when you pay for this level of accommodation, I feel it should be spot on.
