Excellent staff offering helpful service. Excellent breakfast offering the usual hot and cold foods. The room was spacious although the bed might have been a bit small for two people (I was on my own). They will alter the firmness of the Airlux mattress if you ask (mine was fine). Get tram 7 from the station to the Stockerstrasse stop (about 10 mins). Trams are around the corner from the hotel and it's only a short stroll to the Lake past the Congress House. I defy anyone not to enjoy Zürich - it's a wonderful place where everything works!
The building itself is in an amorphous corner block, but inside is fine, and with so much to see and do in Zürich, the outside look is irrelevant.

Alstadt is a small boutique in the old town of Zurich that has been tastefully renovated giving each room a theme. The service is friendly and personal and it's position means we could walk to everything easily. It was a great place to finish our European holiday.
This hotel gets 5 stars from me! From the moment I arrived I was made to feel welcome and valued - I was offered a glass of local wine at the front desk. My room was more spacious than I anticipated and exceptionally clean. The front desk staff member had even brought my luggage up for me as the lift is small and I couldn't have done it in one trip. The bed was comfortable, the toiletries of a great quality and plenty of English TV channels to chose from. The hotel location itself is fantastic - right on the river and with plenty of restaurants, cafes, shops and food stalls within walking distance. Zurich is a very walkable city and there is plenty to see near the hotel. The central train station is not far - 10 minutes walk from the hotel and very efficient. On my birthday there was a hand written card and a block of Lindt chocolate waiting for me on my coffee table when I returned in the evening! the continental breakfast was of a high standard with great variety and quality. I would recommend this hotel to singles, couples or business travellers in particular and would not hesitate in staying there again on my next trip to Zurich.
The best welcome I have ever received at a hotel from Mr. Schneider. Genuinely welcoming not the artificial welcome one usually gets (if that). Went out of his way to make dinner recommendations with candid and accurate assessments of the various possibilities.
Our stay at the Statthotel was pleasant and comfortable. We arrived during the receptionist hours, and were checked in by a person rather than the after-hours system. I recommend timing your arrival for this, if at all possible, as it makes things easier. There is a small elevator to get up to the third level (check-in), so we took turns going up due to amount of people/luggage. The hotel door is on a small street, next to a bar. Going in during the late evening was safe, but you will pass by several people out at the bar. The rooms were clean, and fairly spacious. I liked that quantity of windows, and that they could open for fresh air. No air conditioning (from what I could tell), but it was not needed in late June. There was a fan, though. The shower was great! And, a regular hair dryer was in the room. The nespresso machine made great coffee, and the daily snack put in the room was a nice treat.
The only negative thing that may bother some guests is the noise - being located near two bars, noise is an issue. We did not mind it, however, and it seemed to stop shortly after midnight. The amazing location of this hotel -- right off the water, near a metro stop, and by many shops/restaurants -- made the slight noise totally bearable. There are earplugs by each beside, as well. We liked the minimal contact with other guests and hotel staff -- it seemed more like an apartment stay, which was relaxing and easy. You won't be disappointed if you stay here!
