              :( Very bad service and hotel for crazy money.

            • Group of friends
              8.2

              Nice, clean, and modern hotel with a cosy bar. Friendly staff and perfect location.

              Three rooms share one bathroom and one restroom.

            • Family with children
              7.8

              It is not a standard hotel, but an hotel with its own atmosphere. All rooms are different.

              15 mins to main station by foot

              smoking

            • Couple
              7.8

              Good location, close to train station and tram stops. Lot's of nice restaurants and shops in short walking distance. Rooms were all individually decorated and quite funky (and clean). Breakfast was basic but the croissants/bread was nice and fresh.

              Still expensive considering you are sharing a bathroom, but I think that's just because it's Zurich. The bar and street made it noisy in the evenings, but it was ok with the windows shut (though it got a bit hot).

            • Couple
              5.4

              The breakfast is good ! hotel staff are good !

              There is no air condition and it's very noisy in the very early morning.

            • Group of friends
              5.0

              The design of the room and the location of Hotel Otter were great!

              The smell of smoking is quite strong

            • Single
              6.6

              The location of the hotel is excellent.

              The bathroom is shared. There was no air conditioning in the room, breakfast was poor.

            • Group of friends
              8.2

              the design of room is special and good~~

              the bar on the ground floor is noisy at night.....

            • Single
              7.0

              Very central, clean.

              The free wireless internet didn't work during the evenings on the top floor where I was staying, the connection was only working in some parts of the room as well. Very poor sound isolation towards the corridor, you could constantly hear when people closed the doors. No breakfast before 8 during the weekdays.

            • Couple
              5.4

              Good breakfast and nice late checkout. Helpful stff on level one

              Terrible noise level when trying to sleep.wifi not working properly, big guy in the pub below unhelpful and did nothing to fix wifi or reduce noise level even after the pub below had closed at 1am. Woth paying more and staying somewhere else unless you go out and come home late each night

            • Family with children
              7.8

              It's just very good value for money. Bang in the old centre of Zurich, old, but extremely clean rooms and a very nice breakfast.

              The toilet is in the corridor, you share it with two other rooms.

            • Family with children
              9.2

              Tha staff, the view, the location.

              Surprised to find that the rooms all come with a shared toilet. But it worked well - only 3-4 rooms share, and it was all kept clean and nice.

            • Single
              9.2

              This hotel is very original and in some way your experience may depend upon the room you are allocated as all have variously themed designs. I stayed in a room with the potentially underwhelming title of 'mix', but found a tasteful and refined room which I greatly enjoyed. The included breakfast was also fantastic, being served in the bar downstairs meant real coffee which was a great bonus.

            • Single
              8.2

              Great hotel at a great location. Clean, very convenient location and spacious. My room had no noise from the bar downstairs.

              The only drawback is that the toilet and bathroom are shared but luckily on the same floor, so you share only with 2 other rooms, and there is a sink in the room. However, for the price, it is an excellent steal.
