Sorell Hotel Zuerichberg

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

While the hotel does have nice rooms with certain amenities and it is a quiet location, they do not have air conditioning and only a certain number of fans for guest are available upon request. When we called for a fan, reception told us they will have to put us on the list in the morning for the next night. They need to spend a little extra and make sure their guests are comfortable during the warm summer nights.

highly recommend this for someone who doesnt want to be downtown with all noise. overlooks Zurich and got amazing sunrise photos of Alps. park surrounds it and beautiful setting close to city. staff are great!! i call it my piece of heaven.

We stayed on the 3rd floor and had a wonderful view of the lake. Although not in town, it's tucked away in a quiet part of Zurich just a short tram ride away from town. The room is large and very comfortable with all the necessary amenities, as was the bathroom. Breakfast is buffet style with a choice of eggs that you can order. Staff were very helpful (we had trouble with our rental car and they went all out to try and help us contact the car rental company and when that failed, they tried to sort it out themselves although with no success but kudos for the effort). A stay with nothing to complain about.

Loved this place! Recommended by our son, who is a world traveller as a must stay accommodation when we were in Zurich. Well worth the effort to get there, we took the local tram, very easy, and even though we were only there one night, it could have been a convenient home base as no problem to get to town, quick and simple. Had a delicious gourmet meal in the hotel restaurant, then strolled on the paved footpaths across the hillside after dinner, and watch a glorious sunset on the Alps and twinkling Zurich below. Loved it, wished we could have stayed longer!

The hotel was very clean and the staff very friendly. The view of the lake whilst distant, was very nice. Cost for the Brits even with devalued post brexit pound seemed quite expensive. The Sfr9 ticket per day for the electric tram for the whole day was very good value. Got caught out with taxi from the airport at Sfr65 but it would have been an obstacle course any other way. The food was excellent.

Lovely hotel near the zoo (so there's a very regular tram service - every 10 minutes from the city centre) it's uphill all the way from the city past amazingly beautiful university buildings, it feels very rural. Gorgeous views across the city, lake and towards the snow-topped mountains from the breakfast room/restaurant, the terrace and even from our bedroom balcony. Staff particularly friendly and helpful.

Very nice and pleasant little Hotel high above Zurich with stunning view over the city, the lake and if you are lucky over almost the entire swiss alps. Staff is friendly and rooms clean, spacious with excellent bedding quality. Hotel restaurant is nice and the seasonal asparagus from the surrounding area is delicious. Just: it's sauce hollandaise that comes normally with asparagus. Not sauce béarnaise which clearly doesn't fit.

We chose this hotel as the location looks to be in really peaceful place, and we made the right decision. The location is fabulous as it's in top of the hill overlooking city and lake. Walking trails in nature and Zoo near, and you can get tho the city by Tram in about 15-20 minutes. Great atmosphere to relax. We had Deluxe double room which was one of the nicest rooms I've stayed. Big & roomy and good bathroom. We had spectacular view to the city and lake, so I'd suggest to book room with a view. Breakfast was also one of the best I've had, there were not as much choices as some really big breakfasts, but all was expectional quality and tasty. Check in was fast, checkout took a moment as there was some misunderstanding about the price of the room due our booking from another website, but it was sorted promptly and all went as should in the end. All together service was really good and we were appreciated as a guests.

Great spot in the hills above Zurich with a gorgeous view (when there's no fog!) across the city to Lake Zurich. The hotel is 200m to the super-efficient Zurich tram that takes you direct to the city, allowing connections elsewhere in the city via tram or train. I had a single room, which was very comfortable with good heating, a king single bed, desk and chair, as well as a sofa chair and small occasional table. The bathroom was well-appointed with underfloor heating and towel rail, although the water from the shower in my room overflowed on to the floor because of its design. The rubber duck was a sweet touch. The breakfast was high quality (even champagne if you want it at that time of the morning!) and enjoyable. I also dined in once for lunch and dinner and both were also very good. The highlight, especially on a winter's evening, is the bar with its comfortable sofa-style chairs, soft lighting, and cosy atmosphere. Perfect with a red wine! All the staff were efficient.

Room was great with the nice view over the city, quite at night, fresh air breeze from the trees, birds singing in the morning, nice for jogging in the nearby park and forest, with the FIFA headquarter and zoo walking distance. loved it!
