Great location for travel. The hotel is 2-min walk to the main train station. Very small (single) room. A bit noisy, but ok with closed windows.

Had been skiing in the mountains and wanted to be in Zurich the night before my morning flight out. With frequency of trains from the Bahnhof to the airport stayin in town is ideal. The hotel is perfect for that. On exiting the train, simply drop into the tunnel at the outer end of the platforms, turn towards the higher numbered tracks, go to the end and up the stairs. You're looking at the hotel sign right then. You have to walk around the building past Starbucks to the entrance. 10 minute walk to old town, 15 to the lake.

The hotel is ideally located near the main station, and only a few minutes away from the main areas of Zurich. Ideal for anyone planning to use the trains frequently to/from Zurich. The rooms in the main building are good. The rooms in the second building (nearby) are not as confortable. Overall a good place.

My first time in Zurich, and knowing it's an expensive place, I wasn't expecting much from the rooms at Walhalla. I was pleasantly, in fact very pleasantly surprised by both the size and quality of the room -which we had booked at a discount rate online. Spotless room with plenty of light and space, great bathroom with double sink and powerful shower. The only slight downside was the beds, which were soft and the pillows, which were lumpy. Location-wise, you couldn't ask for more; it is a 2 minute walk to the central station, and another 5 mins beyond that to Bahnhoffstrasse (for shopping). If you're wanting to go further afield, the trams stop right outside the hotel too! All in all a great hotel in a great location for a decent price -by Swiss standards!

Clean, basic accommodation that couldn't be closer to the train station. The area nearby isn't very interesting but I was just staying overnight to take the train into Italy. It was spending more time I'd have stayed in a more central neighbourhood. Restaurant choices nearby were very limited.

As I was travelling by train I chose the hotel mostly for its location, literally 5 minutes safe walk from the main rail station (good directions from the hotel web-site). Pleasant location, surprisingly not too noisy, very compact but clean room and pleasant staff Suited my needs for a one-night stop-over with breakfast provided. Price seemed fair for Zurich! Museum opposite hotel which I did not have time to visit. Bus station very close.

Room & bathroom were pleasant however reception staff, both at checking in & out, left a lot to be desired. The breakfast could best be described as basic & served in a room with absolutely no atmosphere - we could hardly wait to finish & leave. We used this hotel as an overnight stop to break a long journey - and our choice was solely based on proximity to the railway station.

The Walhalla is extremely convenient to the train station and very easy to find. It also has a tram stop and a metro stop right outside the door, so it's very easy to get around town. The staff was very nice, and let me check in early in the morning, as I had arrived by the night train. They are not too knowledgeable about the area (where to find a church, restaurants, night clubs, etc.) but the train station has a great tourist information booth. The room was spacious and clean, but the lack of an air conditioner made it pretty uncomfortable. Fans are provided, but it doesn't reach the window so it's hard to get fresh cool air in. And you don't want to leave the window open at night because of the noise from the trams/trains/etc. Breakfast was good and free internet was a plus!

Zurich is an expensive city but the Walhalla gives value for money. Clientele seem to be business types but the rooms are very suitable also for visitors to the city (ourselves). Maybe not so suitable for young families. Location is excellent, a short walk from the main railway station and another short walk to the shopping areas and the lake of Zurich with its pleasure steamers. Breakfast is included and the staff are very helpful, as we only speak English.

Good location with trams at hotel door step and walking distance to train station and main city area. Hotel is just opposite the excursion bus terminal making it very convenient for tourists to join daily tours. Hotel rooms were very warm as we have to close the windows to keep the noise from the street from getting into the room. Hotel staff took away the electric fan on the last 2 days of our stay claiming that the weather is getting cold but the rooms were extremely stuffy with the windows closed.

Switzerland is expensive there is no doubt about it. One has to know that going in. This hotel, 3-star, was recently, and beautifully remodeled. Of all hotels to include 3-star and 4-star hotels, was absolutely the best of the places we stayed in Switzerland. The breakfast was the best we had in our three-week visit around varied parts of Switzerland for quality and variety. It is easy to get to this hotel from the train station. As in many city hotels, rooms away from the street are far more quiet. We will ask for a off-street room here when we return in the future.

It was a perfect hotel with really helpful and charming staff, a spacious well equipped room and bathroom, superb location - 1 minute from the main railway station and trams in front of the hotel. It was very good value for money, given the high price of hotels in Zurich. I would definitely recommend the Walhalla.

A central and convenient hotel if you wish to stay in the heart of zurich. If you plan to spend a lot of time at your hotel I don't recommend this hotel because of the somewhat sparse nature of the hotel, but it is a very suitible place to stay if you need someplace decent to put your baggage and sleep while exploring zurich. The location is extremely convenient as the hotel is located approximately 100m from zurich hauptbahnhof.

The two rooms we saw were quite nice. Located right next to the railroad station on a busy intersection so request a room at the back. Other reviewers mentioned the constant noise of the trolleys but our room was very quiet. There are several good restaurants around the hotel and in the railroad station. The tub and tile floor in the bathroom were dangerously slippery. I don't believe the rooms are airconditioned, so check if you will be there in mid summer.

Walhalla is a nice hotel very close to the train station. It is right on a tram line and very convinient to get to and from. We could hear the trams going by but they are not very loud. The staff was compentent and helpful. The rooms are a good size--bigger than most European hotels, but smaller than an equivalent American hotel. I would stay there again, no question.

For the price, considering that we are in Zurich, this is an excellent choice. Almost everything is within walking distance and the employees are very cooperative and helpful. The only problem is the noise generated by the wheels of the streetcars that are squeweking as the cars turn on thee rails. Not too bad though.

The website map is woefully inadequate. Although it is actually very close to the train station, we walked a long distance in circles trying to find it. It actually lies behind the train station. Rooms were good for the price in Zurich. Service was average. Breakfast was not included in the price.
