Midrange Zurich Hotels
NOT enough cash (or credit card limit) for luxury Zurich hotels and would rather stay in some less expensive hotels?
No problem my friend, Zurich has some good choices of midrange priced hotels that you can choose from.
Again, booking well in advance is always highly recommended in order to avoid the busiest times of the year.
Many Zurich hotels offer weekend discounts (including Friday) so make sure to plan your trip accordingly.
Let´s see the list now:
"Welcome to the Hotel California, such a lovely place..." remember the Eagles song?
This 3 Star Zurich Hotel is located in the old town, close to the Grossmünster Church, the Bellevue Platz, and the Lake.
In other words: At walking distance to all the main attractions.
Rooms are decorated in California Style featuring a TV, minibar and hair dryer.
Once you see the entrance for the first time it´s impossible to forget. (This is good if you had too many beers and are worried about confusing the hotel...)
Wireless Internet is quick and free for all guests!!
Check out the American style breakfast menu. If you are like me you´ll get hungry just by looking at it.
And yes, all the guests remember how great the breakfast was.

Close Up of the main door
This Hotel has 58 comfortable rooms that are equipped with TV, minibar and Nespresso coffee machine (without George Clooney, sorry ladies...)
If you are travelling by train then you´ll appreciate that it´s only a 5 minute walk from the main train station. (and even if you didn´t arrive by train there are advantages beeing close to the station, more about that in the future)
Wireless Internet in the rooms is available (check with Front Desk for the rates)
There is also a free internet terminal in the reception lounge so those of you who don´t want to spend your travelling monies on the wireless, here you got a solution.
