Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Schweizerhof Zurich Zürich
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.
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!
A GREAT HOTEL
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.

The window was nearly square. It looked great from the outside. Thumbing through books and magazines, and the Internet search engines, I found several plans for building a bay window from scratch. By Sunday evening we had the new window installed and the roof and skirting completed. We just felt that our particular house looked better with three panel bay window rather than the multiple panel bow windows.

With a copy from an old atlas of this region of Switzerland and MamaD as co-pilot we limped our way towards the Schaefer household and were VERY surprised to arrive with just a small delay. Thankfully the roads and villages are well-marked with signs and at several intersections I got out to read out all four directions. However, I wasn't kidding about the size of the roads. It was quite ...
