Walhalla Guesthouse is one ot the best places I've ever stayed as location and cleanliness. It is literally 2 min from the main train station in Zurich. Just across platform 18(on the train station). 15 min walk to the lake, through the main shopping street - Banhoff strasse and 15 min walk by the river to the old town, with all the restaurants and little boutiques. On the other side of the hotel 2 min walk and you are in the bus terminal. With all the busses which takes you not only out of Zurich but around Zurich too(all the tourist attraction busses). Nearby there are two supermarkets where you can buy some food and drinks. One, is situated inside the train station, just one floor down with the escalator, from the main informatin desk(this is the easiest way to find it). This Migros is the only supermarket open 7 days a week And the other one is if you just keep going along Museum strasse, towards the centre, on the left hand side. That one is Coop and is open from Monday to Saturday. Most of the shops in Switzerland are closed on Sunday. The good thing is that the prices are the same in all their supermarkets. No competition on that ground. There are many trams in front of Walhalla. The Guesthouse has 3 floors and a small lift. The room and the bathroom are in immaculate condition. Very basic but enough for a good stay. The only problem is the lack of small fridge and kettle. After long and tiring walks you need a cup of coffee or tea plus a cold drink from the fridge.
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!
