    Helpful staff. Extra effort for storing the bicycles in the cellar. Location quite good in the old Zurich town center

    Expensive breakfast (we didn't) The 'secondary site' with no staff. Staff was only in the main site.

    Very friendly & helpful staff. Good location, easy walk to main train station & shopping strip. Nice hot shower. Kettle provided upon request.

    Pillows were horrible & flat. Quests should be given clearer instructions when booking regarding the guesthouse location being separate to the hotel where you have to check in/check out. Quite expensive for what you get (which is limited) but I guess all of Zurich is expensive.

    Have to check in (and have breakfast as well) in Hotel Alexander then the staff would take you to the guest house. Only 10 mins walk from Zurich main station but took me 30 mins to figure out. Go out from the main station, go straight and cross the bridge on the river, will see a Starbucks at the intersection. Turn right to the small lane, walk down in the old town, then you can find the hotel at your left hand side (Niederdorfstrasse 40). The stone road around is not easy for a tourist carrying 17kg luggage if you get lost like I did. I checked in in the early evening and the reception didn't seem very professional. No receipt for currency change. But the gentlemen helped me carry the luggage to he guest house was nice. Guest house is simple and clean however. Better for people with longer stay but not for biz trip.

    The place is nice and clean and the location is excellent

    Unfortunately, the prostitutes gather in front of the building and it was very noisy at night. Also the bell of a nearby church sound all night long!

    The location quite good but maybe hard to find by yourself because it is too small. The room is tiny but clean. Overall is good.

    The lift is too small and it very hard to use if u have a big luggage

    Convenience of the hotel to everything I wanted to do- walking distance to train station, quiet rooms but set in the centre of the old town and virtually on the walking tour route

    The room was just a bit too hot

    I liked the location, as it was close to the rail station and convenient for doing some sightseeing.

    The beds are a bit hard for my liking!

    The room was clean and had all the basics, but this really is a two star hotel. Wi-fi was decent which is a big plus. It's OK for a short term stay.

    The room was outdated; the bathroom was clean but everything old; the materials in the room were cheap. Pricey for what it was, although this is Zurich. Location is central, but in red light district, although this is pretty benign in Zurich. Don't go for the overly expensive breakfast. We found a charming cafe by the water which had a generous breakfast for far less.

    Location is very good, close to old town, the main train station and downtown. Staff is friendly.and breakfast is quite good. Service was good and rooms were clean and beds comfortable. Availability of daily newspapers and coffee with croissant very welcome.

    The room was very tight and without A/C although the weather was not hot and thus need for A/C not a high priority item. Lack of a reception room where guests could sit, receive friends and read the papers. Price was high for the level of facility of Alexander although we realize that Zurich is a very expensive town.

    Great Location, close to the train station and river.

    Street noises. Ask for a room away from the street.

    - Right next to Niederdorf street and Migros. - Room window facing indoor courtyard, quiet and pleasant.

    - Room space too small, can get a bigger room with same price.

    Comments on Alexander Guest House / Hotel Alexander Staff. Very friendly and helpful reception staff at the hotel where the check in took place. Location was very good and convenient for public transportation & close to many restaurants. The reception supplied all what you need in the room, like adaptors for the chargers, electric kettle etc. Close to the lake for an evening walk.

    In the very centre of Zurich

    Too expensive for what it is (small dull room, very slow wifi...), but probably that's cheap for zurich!

    No tea/coffee facility in room.
