Situated in a convenient spot close to Zurich’s main station, Hotel Montana Zürich Hotel offers elegant, comfortable and good value accommodation to those who need to be in the heart of the city.
The rooms are basic, but elegantly furnished with an occasional antique piece finding its way in. Each features en-suite bathroom with hairdryer, TV with cable channels, tea/coffee stations, work desk and telephone.
Reception is open 24 hours and can assist with local information. Wi-Fi is free of charge and available throughout the property.
Breakfast is available every morning, and is a substantial buffet with much variety. Reception staff will be happy to offer dining recommendations for the other meals.
Zurich’s famous Bahnhofstrasse, a global shopping mecca, is less than a mile from Hotel Montana Zürich. Zurich’s main station is less than 500 yards away.
Montana is exceptionally close to the station - just a couple of minutes on foot. While many of the guests found this convenient when arriving or departing, they also found it a great base if exploring the city itself. Much of what they wanted to see was well within walking distance.
While there were a few contrary opinions, the vast majority of guests said that they enjoyed the breakfast. While variety was said to be somewhat lacking, it seemed to be made up by good presentation, taste and decent portions.
Friendly and helpful staff
Again and again guests mentioned how fantastic the staff at Montana were. They were said to be very welcoming and friendly, and also a breath of fresh air compared to other experiences guests had had in the city.
Rooms a bit too small for some
While this certainly wasn't a universal complaint, many did complain that their room was especially small. They obviously realised that Zurich was an exceptionally expensive city, but felt that the rooms were too small even then.
A bit difficult to find
This was a surprisingly common comment. While reasons were not really given, quite a few guests mentioned that they had trouble finding the hotel. It may be a good idea to print out a detailed map prior to embarking.
No in room snacks
While guests did appreciate the tea and coffee supplied, a couple commented that the hospitality tray would have been so much better if it had contained a couple of snacks as well.
