When I was planning my holiday days as part of my work trip to Switzerland, I took a very long time to book a hotel for the time I wanted to spend in Zurich. Zurich is an expensive city, and hotel accommodation is very pricey. Eventually, I booked the Hotel Leoneck through Booking.com. The price was reasonable for Zurich, and it offered a free buffet breakfast. Also, the hotel is near Zürich HB, with easy access to public transport. The ratings and reviews on booking.com seemed to be quite good.

Now, let’s get to business! Here is my review of the Leoneck Hotel Zurich and what staying there was like!
Decor at the Leoneck Hotel Zurich
While looking at pictures of the Leoneck Hotel Zurich, I found the decor quirky and appealing. The decor featured a cow-theme throughout the hotel which I thought was very Swiss and so cute! The cow-theme is seen everywhere, the entrance, the reception area, passages and the bedrooms. They are certainly very consistent with their branding!
On another trip to Zurich, I stayed at the Limmatblick Hotel. Read about my review of the Limmatblick Hotel or book a stay at the Limmatblick Hotel.

The passage decor is similar – squirrels and pictures of traditional Swiss people like this one:
I was not disappointed with the Leoneck Hotel. Upon arrival, the reception upgraded me from a single to a double room at no additional cost. I was allowed to store my luggage in the luggage storage room since it was still too early for me to check-in.
When I finally came back to the hotel after my visit to the Rheinfalls, I was able to check in quickly. I was pleasantly surprised with my room. The room was light and airy.
There was plenty of space for sitting and my luggage.
The room even had a balcony facing the tram stop that was in front of the hotel – just lovely! When I closed the balcony doors the noise from outside was completely blocked out.
Even the shampoos and bathroom goodies featured the cow theme!
My room key also had a cow design!
At the start of my stroll through Zurich, I walked through the garden of the Leoneck Hotel. It looked like a peaceful place to spend a few minutes reading a book or just relaxing.
The next morning breakfast I had breakfast in the Crazy Cow restaurant. I enjoyed the buffet variety and felt it filled me enough to give me energy for an entire day of exploration.

Will I stay at the Leoneck Hotel Zurich again?
All-in-all I loved my room in the Leoneck Hotel. I loved the hotel, but I would have loved it even more if it had coffee and tea-making facilities in the room. Afterwards, I found out that there are more expensive rooms that have kettles. I will stay at the Leoneck Hotel again - the room was lovely, the breakfast more than adequate and the location the best!
