The X-Tra hotel is very nice hotel in good location, a walking distance from the main railway station as well as from the old city.
It was an OK hotel. By that i mean it was not very good and it was not bad either. I was warned by locals that the area surrounding the hotel is not nice. Noise, drug addicts. But I did not feel uncomfortalbe there. It really is a bit hippie area of Zürich. If you have a family vacation, book another hotel. If you like to party with friends, this is for you. Hotel has no air conditioning so in the summer you have to keep windows open. Passing trams will wake you up. And some drunken partygoers who are going home.
They had a good breakfast. Internet available in lobby.
Unique Quality: Hotel has a restaurant with a large terrace. It's a trendy place to drink and have something to eat while grabbing few beers and drinks. Couple of flatscreens was showing football and most of the clients were watching the game. There was barbeque grill in the terrace. There is a garage, which is nice if you have a car.
Directions: Walking disrance from railwaystation. You can also grab a tram.
A decent 3-star hotel located not too far from the city center either by foot or with the strassenbahn. Quite inexpensive about EUR 100 per night for a double, including breakfast buffet.

clean rooms, furnished simply
Directions: Tramline no. 13th or no. 4 north from the hauptbahnhof about 3 stops at Limmatplatz
I am flying into zurich with my husband and 2 children mid morning. We are spending 1 night and then going to Lenk by train the next day. Where should I stay? Since we will only be there 1 night and we are going to a very nice hotel in Lenk so I am looking for an inexpensive hotel in zurich. Do hotels provide cots in the room or will I need two rooms for 4 people? I believe it would be easiest to stay right near the airport/train station and that they are close to each other, am I correct? Thanks so much for your help!
You don't mention the age of your children. You identify in your homepage that you are coming from the USA. A word of warning - standard hotel rooms will be a fair bit smaller than what you would expect to get back home, so you should not assume that even one additional cot will be possible. Also, don't forget that it is pretty standard in Europe to have breakfast included in the room rate, so all people staying in the room need to be accounted for.
It might be possible to get "family rooms" in some hotels, so you will need to check into this when you are booking. This is something we have managed to do in the past for three or four people. When this was not possible, we did end up having to book two separate rooms.
First ,nothing is inexpensive in SwItzerland especially in Zurich. I was in Zurich in Sept and stayed at the X-tra Hotel,the room was larger then any other hotel I stayed in while in Switzerland.It had a queen size bed an an a single bed that folded down from the wall,if your children are small 4 would fit in this room.The hotel is 15 minute walk from the central train station or 2 stops on the tram at station Limmatplatz witch is 300 feet from the hotel.There is also a restaurant and bar and nightclub here.
