4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The hotel is located bang in center of city and all main tractions are walk away from this place. Stayed here for one night and experience was amazing. Facilities are nice and customer service is prompt

This property is centrally located to access some of the sites of Zurich; especially during the Xmas week. The free mini bar was a nice addition and the lodging at this hotel was good value for money; especially given the expensive hotel rates in Zurich. Unfortunately, there was construction going on directly across the street from the hotel. They did issue ear plugs (not kidding) to block out the noise. The front desk service (staff was very personable) lacked any bona fide "concierge" (sp) skills. They were not knowledgeable about some of the Xmas traditions (lighting of 800 candles) as well as the location of the main Xmas market (at the train station). The buffet breakfast leaved much to be desired. Selection was limited and there was no cook available for special orders (e.g. omelets, fried eggs, etc.).

We were in Zurich over the New Year holiday and stayed at this fabulous hotel. It is in the great location and close the the city centre and lake. The staff were extremely warm and helpful with anything we needed. The rooms are large and comfortable and free wi-fi and mini bar which is restocked daily. Our rate also included breakfast which was good and offered a lot of choices. I would stay here again or recommend to anyone traveling to Zurich.

Centrally located hotel. Easy walk to most things in Zurich. Really enjoyed the free mini bar with daily Toblerone. Great Touch! Nice friendly staff with a great breakfast. would recommend this for a short stay in Zurich

Just a minute or two walk to the very centre, every aspect of the hotel was excellent, although we didn't get the chance to try the restaurant - next time ! In particular the staff were always helpful and efficient

A well located hotel, with easy access to transport, restaurants, shopping. Well laid out breakfast but could add some more servings especially for vegans Backed by staff that is always keen to help, Made it a pleasant stay.

This is my favorite hotel in Zurich. The location and staff a great, the rooms generally quite and I love the new but classic feel of the Oak Bar. Breakfasts are great, as are snacks from the window stand that opens to the street. This is a wonderful spot to rediscover if you haven't been in a bit.

The hotel is well located in Zurich. The service is great and the employees are kind and helpfull. The free complementary minibar is nice . The hotel has an agreement with an independant fitness center which is a big advantage. It is around the corner, well eqiped and a major factor for me to choose this hotel.

Stay here at least twice a year, with and without wife (who also loves the place) Friendly and helpful staff throughout hotel and restaurant, comfortable, immaculately clean rooms... We love staying there.

This is the first review I've ever written of a hotel I didn't stay in (although I should have) On the morning of my stay, I got an email informing me that my room and that of my colleague was unavailable due to a problem with the booking system. Instead, we had been put in the 5* Savoy up the road. So far so good However, the rooms we got were the smallest in the hotel (barely wider than outstretched arms), and had none of the amenities of a business hotel (such as coffee machine and ironing board), which is what we were after. This would have been a 1* review had things remained as such. However, after I wrote a fairly strongly worded email to the Glaernischof, Yves sprung into action, and managed to get me upgraded to a very nice suite (although sadly not my colleague), and promised a review of the policy of rebooking in the future to ensure that guests were well looked after
