    « Good location »

    Good location, big room, clean, tidy, near Station (only 5 mins walk, the station is opposite the hotel) but for my room I can't hear noises from station, the cleaner clean everyday the room. And if you birthday during your stay the decorated your room with balloons, birthday card, and chocolate :)

    « Very pleasant stay »

    I had a very pleasant one night stay in Hotel Wartmann. Friendly staff, clean, great location and good breakfast. I had my room on the trainstation side, but there was no disturbing noise. Can highly recommend this hotel.

    « Great time! »

    Very nice people and welcome. Great room with space, internet access and all the comfort. Food (breakfast) very nice, except the Bircher-Müesli, it was just yogurt without the müesli :-( ) and just another negative point, proximity with the railway station (which is also a postive point!)->have to sleep with the closed window.

    « Super location »

    Just next to the train station, but you are not hearing the train, the location is just perfect. Service is very friendly and helpful. Good room, and a great breakfast buffet. All works, I will for sure stay there again.

    « Good value hotel. »

    I have stayed here a few times and am rarely dissapointed. Reception staff are polite and helpful. The hotel rooms have recently been refurbished and the one I had this week was tastefully decorated and well appointed. For the business traveller the room had a desk, comfortable chair and ample electrical sockets. Well appointed lighting was also noteworthy. Key for anyone on business is speed and stability of wifi connection. Couldnt fault it on either point and log on access was easy. There is complimentary water and juice in the fridge and coffee making facilty. There is also a safe but it is too small for a laptop. The bathroom and shower were clean. I didn't have breakfast, which was included in the price, so cannot comment. Why not a 5 rating. My room faced the railway station and unfortunately the double glazing was not sufficient to silence out some background station noise. Check out was as quick and efficient as check in. Well done to all at this hotel. I will definitely stay again.

    « Nice Hotel »

    Firstly the hotel is very nice and quite. Secondly, the staffs are very professional, enthusiastic and patiently, they all always willingness and kindly to share their good ideas and suggestion to make us have an excellent experience in Winterthur. By the way, the hotel has conveninet transportation and very near to shopping center.

    « Clean, modern, well located »

    Stayed here periodically since 2007 before its 'Best Western' days, its just round the corner from my office, well located by the rail station. Work normally arranges one for the smaller rooms at the back, they can be a bit hot in summer but as they are at the back, the windows can be safely opened. The bigger rooms do have AC and apart from the trains over the street, the area is fairly quiet at night.. Breakfast is a good range of options, wifi is good and stable, coffee is freely available in reception.

    « well placed quiet hotel »

    This hotel is well located close to train station, whilst still being quiet overnight. Good size rooms, with range of charging sockets for appliances. There is a good choice for breakfast and the reception staff are most helpful. English spoke throughout.

    « renovated and comfortable »

    this hotel is renovated recently -the bathroom I had was modern, with a good modern shower -toiletries are in the usual 3stars german/swiss style, big bottles -strange enough (it happened to me in another Winterthur hotel) the towels were very small and limited -silent room -good bed, it was a kind of wide single bed, fully enough -breakfast correct for the class of the hotel, no frills -reception people kind and efficient -position, convenient, good for the city centre -parking: you have to use the multistorey parking of the station, which however is just in front with an elevator ; good even if you have a lot of luggage -wireless , free -swiss price,of course (comparatively expensive for the hotel class) -might consider as an option next time

    « Nice city nice hotel »

    Booked here because it was quite a bit cheaper than anything comparable in Zurich. Right across the street from the train station and yet totally quiet. Large room, excellent bed, shower and breakfast. The nicest touch though is the complimentary E-bikes. What a great way to spend a few hours exploring this lovely town.

    « Peaceful hotel at great location »

    Despite the hotel is right at the train station, the whole place and rooms are very quiet, comfortable and peaceful. Location of the hotel is perfect due to the walking distance to the Winterthur center and of course to the train station from where you can take train to Zurich (takes 20-30mins) or other locations, f.e. beautiful Rhine Falls are only 30mins by train from Winti. Staff is very helpful and pleasant, overall experience is definitely worth more than for just 3 stars hotel. Highly recommended!

    « Nice hotel in excellent location »

    Hotel direct opposite the railway station and 100m from city center. Rooms are small, but very nice and with style arranged. The bed are small as everywhere in Swiss. Would choose this hotel again for a future trip.

    « Perfect for an overshot stay before flying out of Zurich »

    This is not a luxurious hotel but it is very comfortable. It is perfect for an overnight stay with a flight the next day because Winterthur is closer to Zurich Airport than Zurich. We are warmly welcomed and were fortunately that our room was ready - it was before midday at this stage. The room for three was a good size and well soundproofed. The only strange thing is that there is no coffee (but there is tea) in room but there is a coffee machine for takeaway espresso in the downstairs lobby. Not great if you want a cuppa while you are getting up. They had only provided cups and glasses for two but I'm sure we could have got more if we had asked. Our only complaint was that we wanted to ask reception for dinner advice - but she as too busy on a call which lasted for over 15 minutes. We gave up. It didn't sound like a business call! Breakfast is fine but the room lacks atmosphere. On arrival we made the mistake out exiting the train station to the street and didn't realise that you have to go under the train station to the other side. If we are exiting Europe from Zurich we would certainly stay here. You might find other cheaper places in Winterthur but the convenience of proximity to the train station is worth a few more Swiss Francs.

    « Very correct hotel. »

    I just spent one night in this hotel, but cannot complain about anything. The staff was very helpful. The room was spacious and clean, and the bed very comfortable. Internet worked without problems. Also breakfast was very good, even a bit more variety would have been better. However, in general, I would recommend the hotel without doubt.

    « Best surprise of our trip! »

    We were able to reserve a family room here after checking into a hot, noisy, dark disappointing hotel in St Gallen. What a find it turned out to be: the friendly desk staff were ready to receive us at check in; the room was large, clean, and comfortable (we felt at home immediately), and amazingly quiet (despite being across from the train station); the breakfast was fresh and bountiful; the parking across the street at the train station lot was convenient and reasonable (15 Swiss francs/day); and the hotel was easily accessible to the shops and restaurants of the old town. It was easily the best of the four hotels we stayed at on our vacation!! Would highly recommend if you're coming to Winterthur on business or using this location as a home base for a stay near the Appenzell/Zurich area. We were within an hour (typically less) of everywhere we wanted to go!

    « very nice hotel »

    Spent there 4 nights on business trip. Had room towards railway station, but the trees and glazing did the perfect job and I had very good sleep. The breakfast included, decent and pleasant tables in the garden available. Free reliable wifi reaches to the restaurant garden on the street. Free bike rent. Train to airport takes 20 minutes. Would be happy to return anytime.

    « Good value for money »

    Very easy to travel to by public transport. Rooms very convenient and modern with spacious bathroom, airconditioning and business facilities. Very clean! Free wifi. Good breakfast and excellent staff. When weather is nice you can have breakfast in the garden.

    « Fait hotel extremely near the train station »

    I had stayed one night during a business trip. very conveniently located at the back of the train station (2 minutes from station really) I gave it a three just because it did not leave a souvenir on me. But simple reception, room was ready. Small but efficient rooms. I have to say my bed was quite comfy and nice pillows as well. I did get the business room and it has a bigger bed (well worth the money). I think also the price is fair for what you get. I would have appreciated a little extra in the room like a bottle of water or a simple something. I think there is definitely no extra to keep costs down. All was clean and it was also quiet. The back street is quite quiet. The breakfast in the morning was also not great. Very simple. Would have appreciated a bit more variety. So i gave it a 3 star.

    « Marathon May 29th, 2016 »

    Special offer for participants of the Marathon in Winterthur was a great option. Early breakfast for the Marathonis and late check-out we highly recommend! Stuff was there with a helping hand whenever you needed it. Great! Thank you guys.

    « The hotel is centreally located & easy access to train station, bust station as well as shopping places. »

    Overall staying experience is very good. The service & Wi-Fi speed is very good. Food is very tasty & different Varity is available in breakfast. The train & bus stations are very close to the hotel. The airport is just min. from the hotel location by train.

    « Cosy, friendly and good location »

    I have stayed here on several occasions and would recommend a hotel for following reasons. It is spotlessly clean, comfy, located next to train station and well priced. If you are travelling solo I would recommend to pay a bit more and take a double room, because the size of a single room is a size of a shoe box. A very nice shoe box, but you will risk straining your neck watching a TV. Also ask for a soundproof room and if you want a good night sleep choose a room that is facing a back of the hotel and not a train station. There is a possibility of going to fitness accross the street for am extra fee of 15.- frs. Breakfast is rather poor and boring and also their dinning room feels empty and impersonal. The staff at the reception desk is friendly and often painfully slow as if it was their first day at work or they are not being happy with their job.

    « Great location !! »

    Hotel is located on central of transportation in city and it nearby Co-op. It take 3-4 mins to get to train station and Co-op. Inside the hotel is quite small but it's not the problem because room is clean. Breakfast is good.

    « Smart and very good location! »

    Very nice hotel! Personal is very kind and efficient. Family Room are nice, big and modern. Great bathroom with italien shower! Nice breakfast! Very near to the station and to the city center. Very practical!

    « Comfortable and Convenient Location »

    The hotel is by the train station and 5 minutes walk to the city center. Personnel/Service/Breakfast are all great. Rooms are modern, spacious and well equipped. All sorts of rooms available. Family, Solo w Friends. I have stayed in the same hotel many times at different sides. Insulation is very good (rooms are noise free).

    « Comfortable and strategic »

    Nice hotel in the middle of the city. 40 secs from the station, 1 minute from the city center. Rooms are modern and very well equipped, staff friendly. Breakfast is oriented to Swiss/German people (eggs and bacon, don't expect cake and sweet).

    « Comfortable and convenient place in the center of Lucerne »

    Well located hotel in the centre of Lucerne, very close to the train station. Service-minded, very friendly staff, helpful in all regards. Clean, comfortable rooms, well equipped with all essential features. One little grain of salt is that dogs are allowed in the restaurant/breakfast room. All in all, a great place, to retain for future stays.

    « Great location/service »

    The hotel is centrally located and it's very close to my friend's house. I also loved the breakfast and the service. The hotel room is very clean and large enough. It is also good choice for business travels.

    « Always meets my expectations »

    four nights spent again in this cosy hotel. Breakfast is always tasty, comprehensive enough and you'll find free table to sit on. Room was quite and I just love those vast soft pillows. I'll surely come again if there is just free rooms left, unfortunately sometimes I've missed this hotel fully occupied.

    « Great location / great service »

    Location is perfect just by the main railwaystation. Hotel is clean, personnel super helpful and breakfast is nice. Been here multiple times due to business and always fast and reliable service. Also sometimes have had to request receipt later on via email and personnel responds quickly. Nothing to complain.

    « Excellent hotel »

    This is a pretty nice hotel, convenient location, very good facility, and considerate service. It's a good choise for business travelling and family tour. It's my preference during my travelling. The only problem is can't get reservation evertime.

    « training at Rieter »

    I used to stay at Hotel Wartmann since 2007 and later it converted into Best Western Hotel Wartmann... Love to stay there, everything is wonderful in this hotel i.e. location wise, very very friendly staff, breakfast buffet always full of variety and restaurant is awesome with delicious food. Abid Imam Pakistan.

    « Business Trip »

    This hotel is very well located regarding the Train Station. The room was nice, the bed good. The breakfast was complete and with choice. People at the desk were nice and helpful. I will come back there for my next trip to Winterthur.

    « Birthday trip »

    This is one of my favorite hotels in Winterthur Super clean, super friendly, excellent breakfast and ideal location for train travelers I loved my single room. The hotel is located behind a train station, but the noise from the trains did not bother me, because I was homesick to Winterthur and Switzerland, so I was longing to hear the train sounds.

    « Burckhardt Compression training »

    During my next stay at the BEST WESTERN Hotel Wartmann, I would prefer to stay on the side of the hotel that faces away from the train station. My room was on the first floor and faced the train station. I found this location quite loud and made it difficult to fall asleep.

    « Always comfotrable and frienly »

    Good friendly service at the counter. They once even gave me a Birthday present. The room has lately been renovated and are completely up to date with a good comfort. In addition a good breakfast buffet.- what more can I say.

    « Business Hotel »

    I was there on a Business trip so couldn't use much of the hotel facilities. However the Hotel is located very well. Close to the market,Bus station.train station. The reception is friendly and do speak a variety of languages. Rooms however are a bit smaller.

    « Business trip »

    Great hotel and convenient for all business ares. Staff very friendly. Nice rooms. A good restaurant is attached to the hotel. Don't be put off by the closeness to the railway station, I have not lost any sleep due to train/station noise. Winterthur is approximately 20 minutes from Zurich airport and the hotel is opposite the station.

    « cozy and comfortable with good service »

    I've spent several nights at the hotel Wartmann on business trips and always been very satisfied with the level of the hotel and service. Breakfast is comprehensive and the rooms comfortable.The only minus is that I have not always been able to book a room as the hotel has been fully booked.

    « Excellent Hotel and Services... »

    Best location and best services and attention. The room is very confortable, clean, It has free wi fi and it is located very close to the train station and easy to get the Zúrich airport. The staff is very nice and helpful . I stayed very well.

    « Next to the railway station »

    This hotel is just opposite the railway station and therefore very practical for those travelling by train and is also within a few minutes' walk to the city centre. The personnel was friendly and helpful. The room was spacious and clean, the bathroom impeccable and the bed comfortable. A full buffet breakfast is included. Avoid a room overlooking the station as it could be noisy and there are other, quieter rooms.

    « All you expect and need! »

    What a nice change!! I've arrrived quite late but got surprised by a nice and friendly man welcoming me in a heartfelt way! I felt welcome immediately! The rooms are nice and comfortable and breakfast has all a good breakfast need. Check out was efficient and friendly! The hotel itself is located close to the railway station and very central. I will clearly book this hotel again

    « Excellent Hotel! »

    perfect location close to the station, very friendly welcome, very helpful staff, would choose it again for a overnight stay. Had excellent dinner at the argentinian restaurant in the hotel! very friendly staff and brilliant food!!

    « Hotel Wartmann Winterthur CH »

    I was on a business trip, Hotel had nice rooms well appointed clean tidy, staff very helpful, ideal for trains across the road and buses, everything worked in the room, excellent breakfast in the morning, meals good at the adjoining restaurant. It was a little warm in the room as no cooling was on however it was in November and we had great weather.

    « This is what a central city hotel should be like! »

    I stayed three nights on a private trip to the city. The hotel was as perfect as could be - two minutes' walk from the train station, and five minutes to the streets of the old town. The hotel has been very recently refurbished in great comfort and with excellent taste. Comfortable room, a large (140cm) single bed, pristine shower/WC (I felt as though I was the first guest to use it). With the window closed you could not hear the trains 100 metres away! On the other hand, the room was a bit warm... Very good welcome by friendly, multilingual staff; good breakfast. Would certainly stay here again.

    « The best hospitality »

    This is the second year in a row that we have stayed at this hotel. It's the same staff from last year. The staff is incredibly professional and nice. They go above and beyond to make us feel welcomed. The first time we stayed for a week and a half and this year we booked 2 weeks. -Super clean rooms. -Delicious, fresh breakfast with many choices. -Free coffee machine, all I can drink Cappuccinos is a major plus. -Strong WiFi. Staff is great, from Martin at reception, the reception ladies in the morning (very cheerful), the breakfasts lady (very nice, hard worker), and the room cleaning staff, ALL of them work hard to make you feel welcomed. They all seem to love their jobs and it shows in the service they give. A big plus is that they all know English (my German is still a little choppy, but I'm learning). We will definitely be returning next year. Do yourself a favor and book a room here.

    « Excellent Hotel in Winterthur »

    Stayed for a night. Rahel who manned the front office and reception was very polite and considerate and allowed me to check in early at 11 AM itself (I had arrived early because of flight timing) even though the normal check in time is 2 PM. When you come across such a good gesture from the hotel staff at the outset, it can make the whole stay all the more pleasant which it turned out to be in the end. Clean, comfortable room. Central location in Winterthur.

    « Short but enjoyable stay »

    Friendly and helpful staff, comfortable room Easy to get to from the train station (though I did go to the wrong side at first - I followed signs to the centre of town - I should have gone the other way).

    « Business trip to Winterthur »

    Hotel Wartmann is very good located near the train station, surounded by nice restaurants, shopping área and easy access everywhere by bus, train or taxi. Near to the historical Winterthur center, nice tours are possible by bicycle or walking.

    « Always good service, good quality / price ratio »

    This hotel is always in good shape, nice personnel and price / quality ratio is very appealing. Breakfast is good, nothing special but just good and there is enough food and options. Hotel is close to railway station and in the heart of the city. But train noises do not bother in the night. You can sometimes hear a bit train leaving but that is all. And if room is in the inner yard, then no issues at all.

    « Good hotel, perfect location »

    This is a good choice hotel for a business stay in Winterthur. Literally next to the train station and within walking distance of town centre. Rooms are well furnished, with good tv channels and good wifi. Breakfast is buffet which is also very good. I have also stayed in banana city hotel in Winterthur, but in future will stay here in wartmann. It's a shame that there isn't a small area of the hotel where they could put in a few gym machines. But, that said, I'm happy to stay here again.

    « Comfortable Stay @ BEST WESTERN HOTEL WARTMANN »

    I really enjoyed my stays @ your hotel . Very comfortable, neat & clean rooms with good ambience. Rooms are spacious enough. People are very enthusiastic & ready to help at any time ! Location of hotel is an added advantage all the major location are just walk away!!! I like spacious lounge to relax with separate smoking zone & 24 hrs WiFi connectivity. Once again I had comfortable & pleasant stay in BEST WESTERN HOTEL WARTMANN

    « nice hotel, good location, friendly staff »

    This was the first step in our vacation. We stayed one day but we would have stayed more. The hotel is very nice, BW standard (which is quite good in Switzerland), well maintained. The location is good, you need to cross the railway station (nothing unpleasant or dangerous) and in 5 minutes you find yourself in the center of the city. Staff was very friendly with guidance. Good breakfast included in the price, good wi-fi. The hotel has no parking of its own, but the parking lot of the rail-station is across the street.
