Hotel Florhof

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This is a very nice little hotel (more like a bed and breakfast) just up the hill from downtown. The grounds are very well maintained, with an excellent garden area that has tables with umbrellas and chairs. The common areas are all inviting and pleasant places to while away an hour or two. The rooms are small, but filled with a mix of old-world charm and modern amenities (flat screen tv and a tablet). Toiletries are generously sized, from Kiehl's and the towels and linen are good quality. The breakfast is nice and nicer still in the garden, with really good coffee and croissant, plus a selection of cheeses, bircher muesli, and so on. As others have mentioned, there is no AC. But the column fan and an open window (on a quiet street) make for a pleasant night's sleep. Lastly, the staff are VERY friendly and accommodating. All in all, an excellent two-night stay in lovely Zuerich. Would definitely recommend.

Stayed one night Cute hotel with great location just outside of old town Room was small as expected but overall hotel was great and free parking !! Breakfast great. No air conditioning of course but great place to say away from tourist feel but close enough

The hotel is close to a tram station and within walking distance of restaurants and shops in the Old Town area. The staff is very helpful and friendly. They even prepared breakfast for us at 3:30 am! Now that is service!

We were "lucky" to be there during the super hot weather and there was no air-conditioning in the room. Thankfully, a little tower fan helped us through the night. The restaurant staff were friendly, but my sis in law did not have good experience with the reception and housekeeping staff. Do not expect a big breakfast buffet spread. They serve very simple breakfast with freshly baked bread and the fresh fruit juice was great. According to my picky son, the hot chocolate was very nice. For the ladies, do note that there is no concierge to help with the luggage and will have to carry the luggage up the stairs to reach the lobby. Very unique small little lift just for 2 luggage and 2 medium size body max. :) Room near the restaurant was a bit noisy at night. Walking distance to Zurich old town.

The Florhof is a very pleasant and welcoming hotel near the old town in Zurich. The rooms are comfortable, even if air-conditioning would have been a welcome addition the night I stayed. I don't like having to step into baths to take a shower, which is the situation here. Good free Wi-Fi. Bottled water in the room but no coffee/tea. Standard but good hotel breakfast. Overall, very nice and certainly a place to consider staying the next time you're in Zurich.

We celebrated our wedding at the Florhof!!! We both love the Florhof, and as residents of Zürich, we visit the restaurant regularly, the more so since my great good friend Ludovic Pitrel became chef de cuisine something over a year ago. In the mean time he has won Gault Milhaud stars and the restaurant has become very much much one the places for fine dining in Zurich. Both our stay, and the reception which we held there in the restaurant, which seats 35-40 maximum, were made the more enjoyable, our preparations the more easy by the tireless attention of the staff, in particular Susana Sampaio, for whom nothing ever seemed to be too much trouble. Her wisdom and advice together with that of Chef Pitrel were amazing, always the aim was to give us exactly the event that we wanted, which they absolutely did. We had a suite, not overly large, but wonderfully comfortable, and spotlessly clean- we didn't want to leave after our 2 nights there!! The wonderful little touches made such a difference- the bottle of Cremant d'Alsace (the same which we had as an aperitif to our reception) chilling on arrival was most welcome, the personally hand written note from Susana Sampaio touched us both deeply... I just cannot recommend the Florhof too highly

I stayed in this hotel for just 1 night on a business trip. The staff was very friendly and helpful, also with providing some "work-space". The room was small but clean and comfortable - since it was quite warm during my stay (on the upper floor, beneath the roof) I had to open the window to sleep resulting in some street noise. Breakfast was wonderful - the staf allowed me to sit outside in the sun! City center and lake within walking distance

This is a comfortable, stylish hotel in central Zurich with relatively spacious rooms (compared to some hotels in Geneve!), very friendly staff, and a lovely garden outside with a sitting area. There is free wireless and breakfast is included. Due to an early departure, the staff packed a portable light breakfast for me. The amenities in the bathroom are high class and the rooms simple but comfortable to work or rest in.

Very Swiss very nice Good visitors Excellent service Simple rooms but good beds quality Nice breakfast Walking distance to old city and university and quit are Was just lovely staying Would definitely recommend And restaurant is good as well both a nice terrace, should be very nice in summertime

What a pleasant surprise, this beautiful old chalet hotel in the old centre of Zurich. Very personal style with friendly staff that go out of their way to make you comfortable. The rooms are spacious with small bathrooms, water and wifi complementary. The restaurant deserves special mention, wonderfull menu with nice choice of wines. The whole experience comes highly recomended.
