Who are we? EuroCheapo is a guide to cheap hotels in Zurich and throughout Europe. Our editors have visited, inspected and reviewed budget-friendly hotels in the city, from the train station to the far side of Grossmünster. If it is even moderately affordable, we’ve visited it!

Zurich does not give a hearty Swiss welcome to budget travelers. The city’s “high season,” ironically, is during peak business times—so hotel prices can drop a bit over weekends and during holidays when business travelers go home. Regardless of your dates, the hotels we’ve recommended should offer affordable rates year-round.

Getting started: First do an availability search in the box above or read through our list of recommended hotels. If you need help choosing the right neighborhood to sleep in, read through our neighborhood descriptions.
