Historical Traveller Reviews of Crowne Plaza Hotel
I got a good price, so I love itfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Breakfast costs 30 CHF (probably not worth it), and airport shuttle is 15 CHF per person (maybe worth it, but for us it was free to take the tram to the train station and then onto the airport and I could pick up Bratwurst and chocolate along the way).
There is a gym with a jacuzzi, pool, tanning beds, sauna...etc. I would say overall, I can see why some people on this board complain about it not being a great four-star hotel, however it is still a four-star hotel.
Still a 4 starfrom jokemuc
Do not Stay Here...from thebigfinn
To start out, the location is really terrible. Zurich traffic is a nightmare and unless you're prepared to use the tram and switch, getting a taxi to come out between 4 and 6 PM takes forever. Once you're in the taxi, the ride to just about anywhere takes forever during this time period. You cannot walk to the center of Zurich and the area aound it is not very interesting unless you're there to see a soccer match (it's close to a stadium). The hotel lobby is fine, but just next to it is the breakfast restaurant (which also serves lunch and dinner buffet) which is an ugly cafeteria style restaurant with no warmth or atmosphere. The bar is ok, but the better restaurant just past the bar is not very special. The food is just ok and the service (while somewhat friendly) is inconsistent and slow. Our lunches there took way too long. Overall, the staff of the hotel seems to try, but it's such a disappointing place that they probably have a hard time getting excited to work there everyday. The worst thing about the hotel is the bedrooms! They are tired and in desparate need of updating. My assistant had kindly reserved an executive room for me. I shudder to think what a normal room is like. I had an ugly mauve leather loveseat in my room to go with the rest of dark pinkish decor. The built in (tiny) closet has a few nasty grey plastic hangars and set a shelves. There was a desk with internet/monitor. The bathroom was extremely basic, although the staff was generous with soap,shampoo, lotion. The shower tub had a shower curtain!!!! I was in shock from this. I don't think I've ever had a shower curtain in any European hotel - yuck! But the worst was the bed - it looked like a metal framed portable bed and was extremely uncomfortable. I am not someone who has trouble sleeping naturally in hotels and on planes - I never need sleeping aids and I typically never suffer from jet lag...but I found it hard to sleep in this bed because it was so uncomfortable.
I do have one positive - the conferencing staff was very helpful and attentive - a bright spot in an otherwise dismal stay. They tried really hard to meet our requests and no request was too much for them. Too bad they have so little to work with at this hotel, because it could be so much better.
Comfortable placefrom David Collier
A 3 star Hotel - AVOIDfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Least favorite Intercontinentalfrom LorraineGilmer_TX
Nice for the Business travelerfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Zurich itself was great. Have the concierge arrange a night tour for you. Ours was great. The river is beautiful at night with all the lights and there are plenty of fun shops and restaurants in the old city. We also met some friendly people who wanted us to go barhopping with them, but we didn't have time!
Zurich is worth at least a night or two stay, and this hotel is fine if you aren't looking for luxury or something in the old town. Since it was our last night in Europe, we had a few drinks in the bar. The staff was polite and attentive, we quite enjoyed ourselves. Yes, the drinks are expensive, they are that way everywhere in Switzerland.
Awful Intercontinentalfrom Flaesb
Great service - small rooms - would stay againfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Top Local Tips for Zurich
Hidden bar Next to the main station, there is a museum with a very nice bar in the interior court. Sunny and peaceful.
Zurich Card Zurich Card is a great value - usuable for all public transportation including the public boat on Lake Zurich and includes many attractions including audio guide at the museums.
Lots of Shops Bring your cash or credit card. Everything including meals are very expensive here. We had dinner at a couple of restaurants and with one beer a piece, the price of the meals were at least 70 SWF. That's about 42 Euros/60 US dollars and that didn't include a dinner salad or bread with the meals. If you are into fashion, there's plenty of that, but I saw polo shirts for 99 SWF. Shoes for 250 SWF. Way too expensive for our tastes.
