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.

... wonders after a good 1/2 hr of shaking. Today is especially exciting as we are meeting our daughter Sarah at the airport as she flies over from England to be with us on our 4 night stay in Zurich. Just as a side line- we heard & saw on last nights news in Singapore that there was an indefinite train strike in (I assume) all of Germany. Let's hope it has been resolved by next Tuesday. We are taking a train from Munich to Mannheim( 3 ...
... like no one, especially Patricia could change it. It was frustrating & Noel was quite agitated about it all along, particularly this morning when he talked to the Swiss Air attendant. We thought he was almost ready to tell her off, but he got the right response from the nice Air Canada ladies, who righted it all & cancelled his Vienna portion. All of a sudden, we knew we were getting closer to home & our ...
... my life would be like back in the Renaissance and how we would be walking around the city trying to navigate through many markets and not having a tour guide. As we are driving our tour guide stops and shows us the Munster Bridge. Here on the Munster Bridge it over looks the entire Old Town and gives such an amazing view. Our tour guide stopped to give a speech about the history that my other friends were very fascinated ...
... and in no time at all, we were parked up and knocking on the door. I felt a bit apprehensive on two counts. Firstly, she was not expecting us and was now 77 years old. Secondly, she nor her husband can speak one word of English! The last time I had seen her, I had been with another of my mothers' school friends, Lineli, and I had not understood hardly anything they had said, though admittedly they had been talking in Schweizerdeutsch, a ...
... very beautiful...but only if you see the whole scene..cause after listening to the video of it on my camera, it was not so peaceful!! After watching the parade for "two rounds" and having a schnapp from one of the the stalls lining the sides of the streets, we went in to warm up in a local bar where some instrument men from the parade were enjoying a beer or two. It was quite a rustic and small town atmosphere, and very connected to the annual event. As we ...
