            10.0

            The staff stood out at the Continental. They were excellent, especially during check-in.

            Only that the elevators are old and smaller.

          • Family with children
            10.0

            Very friendly staff. Excellent hotel conditions, very comfortable,very modren. Good price for service.

          • Older travelers
            9.2

            Quiet area in business district, no traffic noise, pleasant rooms. Excellent breakfast. Easy walk to Hauptbahnhof and tour bus terminal. Longer walk to lake, or catch boat from Landesmuseum (4Fr or free with Zurichcard). Free minibar with superior room.

            No bathtub (but large shower). Slightly sleazy area (stripclub between hotel and station) with street deserted at 9pm, except for groups of drunks.

          • Family with children
            10.0

            Excellent hotel in an extremely convenient location. Very quiet, very modern. Spacious rooms with beautiful marble bathrooms. Updated Swiss accent pieces in keeping with a tradional Swiss ambience eventhough totally new. Highly recommend for your stay in Zurich.

          • Group of friends
            9.2

            Beautiful rooms and bathrooms.

            The bar and restaurant prices seemed very high.

          • Single
            7.8

            Good location and clean rooms and good breakfast

          • Older travelers

            Decor Ok but not great. Television service was second rate for a premium hotel. All in all a bit overpriced. Staff was pretty good though.

          • Single
            9.6

            The staff were excellent and very helpful within the hotel but also regarding outside activities within the region. My room was upgraded from single room. a very pleasant stay and would return.

          • Older travelers
            10.0

            Excellent Hotel room , facilities and staff

            Breakfast cost at SF30 / person is unreasonably expensive . We chose to eat breakfast at a cafe very close ---- toast cheeese, ham and eggs for SF9

          • Group of friends
            9.2

            The Hotel staff, especially the one who was on duty when we checked in on May 11, 2010 was extremely helpful. We were given advice and tips on what to do in Zurich and which tour to take. The room was comfortable although a bit too small but the kettle and sachets of tea and coffee available in the room made up for it! After being in hotel rooms in Amsterdam, Madrid and Milan without kettle, coffee and tea in the rooms, it felt great to have them at the Continental.
