Hotel Altstadt exterior.


A typical room in Hotel Altstadt.

The Hotel Altstadt is a small hotel in Zurich, (Switzerland) located at Thyrmand Strasse 6.


In some earlier point, the area left between the Room 12 and Room 14 was turned into a secret base for the Intelligence Agency General Headquarters.

Agent Kara visited the hotel and asked for the Room 13, but was told by the receptionist that such a room does not exist in the hotel or any other hotel in Zurich for that matter. The receptionist recommended rooms 12 and 14, which were both available and Kara booked the room 14.

She found a peculiar set of numbers between the bible and decided to dial them into the telephone. This opened a secret door to the room 13. In there Kara received instructions to search Zurich Hauptbibliothek.


Hotel Altstadt's has a restaurant, which is open from 8 o'clock in the morning to 11 o'clock in the evening. The hotel it self seems to be open around the clock.

The hotel charges ten Franks for a room. Changing a room is free[1], if there are open rooms.

The hotel lounge is decorated with striped beige wallpaper and some flowers.

Rooms all have a sink and a soap for washing, plus a mirror to check your appearances. Bed, telephone and a bible are also a standard.


  • The secret room 13 is possibly inspired by an M.R. James novel.


  1. In Covert Front Episode 3: Night in Zürich Kara doesn't have to pay, if she changes the room, no matter how many times she does this.
