The simple, friendly Hotel Marta was completely gutted and refurnished in October 2010. The result was a brand new two-star establishment in the heart of Old Town. The rates here are on higher end of the EuroCheapo spectrum, but we think the Marta is splurge-worthy for its prime location and social mission.
From the angular lobby to the uncluttered guestrooms, the theme at the Hotel Marta is minimal, frill-free and spotless. The boxy beds and minimalist lamps in the guestrooms smack of Ikea, and although we thought the dark gray linoleum floors were unfortunate, the baby blue walls are breezy and spotless. Each room is equipped with a fan and television.
The private bathrooms are spacious by European budget hotel standards, and each is bright and done up with sparkling white tiles and glass-walled showers.
Make no mistake, the Hotel Marta is a basic budget establishment. You won’t find state-of-the-art stereos or quirky room service options here, but the super central location and moderate Zurich rates explain the hotel’s steady stream of guests.
Another plus: The Hotel Marta gives back to the community by reserving a set amount of positions for disadvantaged women.
Breakfast is included in the room rate. The hotel offers a free Internet station and free Wi-Fi throughout.
