      Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Schweizerhof Zurich Zürich

      Great hotel


      Convenient location, comfortable room, fine restaurant - what more could one ask? Plus the welcome drink is a nice touch after a long day. I would definitely stay here again.

      The best


      Unfortunately we only had one night in this superb hotel, but it is on the list to return to in the future. The location was excellent, particularly if arriving in Zurich by train, as it is across the road from the main station. The staff on arrival were attentive and friendly and the room was beautifully appointed. It is located near the business and shopping district which is very convenient also, and the buffet breakfst was one of the best we had during our 4 weeks travelling in Europe.

      Great time in Zurich


      We agree with the other reviews.

      Great location for tired travellers (just 2 minutes walk from the station) and right smack in the middle of the shopping district, restaurants, close to the old town and other attractions. Rooms well appointed and room service very attentive. Front of house staff and reservations super friendly -- this was a hotel that pays great attention to detail. Breakfast buffet was fantastic.

      BTW - check their special AMEX summer rates - a veritable bargain for the quality they offer.

      We will definitely return.

      Great hotel, great location


      Very probably Zuerichs best located hotel. Right opposite the Bahnhof, round the corner from the famous Bahnhofstrasse shopping area.

      Staff are very hospitable and can't do enough for you.

      Rooms are good and beds very comfortable. Does a good line in breakfast.

      Only downside, though is that it is pricey - but you do get what you pay for.

      Efficient, very pleasant, bit pricey


      If you're arriving and/or departing by train (we did both) there is no finer location, as it faces the Hbf.

      Very efficient service (quick check-in and out), very comfortable room (although duvet too warm), limited choice for dinner but very enjoyable meal and wine, very comprehensive breakfast.

      Only problem is the £ rate to the SwFr needs to improve!



      We spent a very pleasant weekend here,the staff were very helpful and friendly, the room was attractive, the beds comfortable and the (genuine) champagne breakfast a fine start to the day.

      On a sour note, it seems rather mean to close the bar so early on a saturday evening when guests would surely appreciate a drink after a long days shopping!

      We had dinner in the french style restaurant...the food was good enough but did not warrant the prices, I have eaten in michelin starred restaurants at cheaper prices!

      The best service anywhere


      I have to give the Schweizerhof 5 stars just for their fantastic service. This hotel can't do enough to please you. If it rains, they will wait at the door with umbrellas. If you need dinner reservations they will call all over Zurich to get you in. On my last visit, I mentioned briefly that it was my mothers birthday only to find a box of chocolates and a card hand signed by the whole staff left in our room. Besides, the excellent service, you can't beat the location. Across from the train station with easy access to everything and around the corner from Zurich's famous BAHNHOFSTRASSE for shopping. Rooms are pleasant.

      A quiet weekend away..


      If you are planning on spending a weekend here, be prepared for the bar closing at 5pm Saturday and the restaurant closing Sunday evening.

      Clearly they know their market as the hotel was very quiet, but for those who do stay it can be inconvenient.

      Location, location, location..& service.


      My 3-nights here were the best I have had in any hotel round the world. Aside from having the BEST location of any hotel (across the road from the train station, 5 min walk to the bus station where tours depart, and on the doorstep of great shopping and eating), the service was outstanding.

      Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Enjoy a refresher towel and cool drink while you are checking in... fresh fruit awaits you daily.. an inclusive breakfast buffet that was to die for. They even provided guests with the recipe for their Birschler muslie.

      Try to time your trip for a Fri-Sun night, as they offer great weekend discounts.

      ... so there's that too..) We woke up, went to a place for breakfast where the served us coffees with latte art, which was a pleasant surprise. That was about the final pleasant surprise of our day. We headed for the train station, where we hoped to stash our bags before going to the mountain. After finding the lockers were 9 francs, we deemed it worth it, until the locker took our money (12 francs since it was counting it originally) we had to put it in ...

      ... regime?
      It's pretty easy to find and pinpoint unhealthy weight loss programs out there. Many loss weight fast diets that promise dropping greater than a few pounds weekly might be warning signs. Other warning flags are diets that include eating just one kind of food for prolonged amounts of time (lemonade, cookies, etc). Another huge notice part is these diets that promise you can ...

      Kunsthaus Museum and Imagine Restaurant/Bar

      Culture day. Decided to go to the Kunsthaus museum where the Edvard Munch exhibit was. He is the artist that is best known for "The Scream." It was an interesting exhibit and he was fairly controversial during his career.

      After looking at his exhibit we wandered through some of the old Masters and some Impressionists and a few Swiss artists.

      We came home via the train station and stopped at IMAGINE and had a glass of wine and shared some appetizers. Nice day.

      ... name. Surrounded by the Alps in each direction, the flat bare ski runs await the first snowfall. It's a town full of boutiques where well heeled tourist can stroll in the afternoon sun browsing. As part of the canton of Ticino, it's the wealthy Italian part of Switzerland and cost of living is high. In fact during our very short staff, we easily blew our budget on a simple meal but I guess that's the price you pay to live in a mountain paradise. Our trip through ...
