"Interesting hotel with great staff"
If you are want a room that is not of the usual boring corporate hotel style then this hotel might well be for you. Further the staff at the hotel are uniformly helpful and kind. Definitely will stay there again. The only downside side if you are traveling for business and need to work at the desk is that it is at a quite awkward height. Even with that it still gets five stars from me.
"An excellent example of nice on the website but quite a bit different in reality. Luck that the personnel is so friendly"
I had high expectations after studying the website. The reality was not ... really at the same level: special lighting for atmosphere' Design, yes but not high-level. Bed OK but not more. Bathroom quite limited. Breakfast OK without anything special. The experience that you often have from not-cheap hotels that you would like their furniture in your own house was here absolutely not the case, what should not be possible for a "design" hotel. But yes, isn't everything in Switzerland terrible expensive for what you get'
"A good hotel for a short stay"
A small hotel in a quiet area close to the University Hospital. Easily accessible from the center of the city. The lobby bar is small and cozy. My room was nice and quiet and the bathroom was clean. WiFi is complimentary. Breakfast buffet offers a nice selection of food. Staff were friendly. This hotel is a good option for a short stay in Zürich.
4 night at the Plattenhoff in June. It's small bedrooms, what i think Student dormitories would look like. Staff are friendly. Breakfast is limited - No hot food but delicious croissants. Housekeeping were a little strict on restocking the soap. I had to request for more on more than 1 occasion. Location is good. About 15 min walk to the lake or 25 minute to main central station. Alternatively team is 5 mins away and central is a good 3-4 stops away. Overall not a bad stay
"Great hotel, good location in Zurich"
My wife and I stayed at the hotel for three nights from the 3rd to the 6th June. Nice quiet location, the room (well ours was big) and had a comfortable bed. The staff were really helpful and the breakfast was nice. Close to the city centre, just take the tram (number 6) which takes you to the station, then you can explore the city (like we did) I would recommend getting the Swiss-pass it will save you a fortune.
