Sorell Hotel Zürichberg

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Great views but it seemed a little dated in the decor. Bedrooms I think need freshening up. I had a coffee cup not cleaned properly,the TV did not work and I kept bashing my leg on the corner of the bed as it was located too near to the bathroom door. Also not keen on the sliding bathroom door.

With a beautiful view you have all the mountains, lake, city and farm in a picture. 6 minites uphill walking distance from the last stop, Zoo Tram Station. And almost 30 minutes away from downtown and main train station tram ride. The tram is #6 and passes by University of Zurich by 15 minutes using tram. Food was excellent and has a wood made restaurant and rebuilds annually. Great location for walking, jogging and siteviewing, with quiet ambiance (especially those who want to be away from the city), also nearby woods and some farms.

Very very nice hotel, comfortable, clean, wifi everywhere, nice rooms, amazing bar, design, wonderful breakfast - one of the best. Nice, quiet location, beautiful view over Zurichsee, wonderful gardens.

We came as part of a larger business group. During the afternoon we used the conference area with modern facilities and good catering. All service personnel was very friendly, professional and helpful. We also tried the bar B2 which has an interesting card (which is for sure smaller than the restaurant one, called R1).

This hotel is in a perfect location, above the city of Zurich, in a quiet position, yet within a few minutes of the town. The view, over fields, of Zurich and the lake are amazing in the day and stunning at night. I had a marvellous room with this view. The room was exceptionally large, well equipped, with the most comfortable bed. The bathroom was fabulous, with Rituals toiletries and soft towels. There is a coffee machine and huge television. The bar is very friendly and comfortable and the restaurant is very good with a large selection of seasonal and local dishes. The breakfast was amazing, with freshly made egg dishes and a huge selection of food. The staff in the restaurant were very attentive and friendly. In the evening the room is tidied, the bed turned down and the bathroom refreshed, with sweets on the pillow. The hotel has an underground car park and is easily accessible on the No. 6 Tram from the Main Station. I very much look forward to returning to this hotel.

Nice hotel at a great location, 15 minutes away by car from the Central Train Station. The view to the lake and the mountains is very beautiful. There are two buildings, the older and traditional one and the new one which is less pretty, the former is preferable. Breakfast is rich and satisfying.

Interesting layout of the rooms, lined up in a spiral staircase. Inside of the room is also unusual, but pleasant. Very good selection of cheese for the breakfast. If you want to drink a coffee, please pay attention that the coffee machine is reserved only for seminars - early morning you might miss the notice next to it :) Staff is very friendly and they will bring you large quantities of coffee.

This hotel is friendly & has lovely terrace to enjoy the view of Zurich. We stayed for one night. Our room was clean and had a small patio. We received a small fruit basket in the evening. Breakfast was complete & included some unique yogurts, fresh breads, plenty of cheeses and fruits. The terrace was great for having a drink, very peaceful. The hotel is accessible by the #6 tram Zoo stop. We really enjoyed our stay.

Breakfast on the patio overlooking Zurich from on high is sublime and well worth he 20 min tram ride or half hour walk to city center. I stayed in modern part, with small patio and clean, comfortable room. Breakfast is elaborate and delicious. Bar open until midnight, can sit outside on the upper porch and relax.

We loved our stay here we have stayed in many hotels in Zurich but this was more relaxing. The hotel is situated about 15minutes by tram out of town. A great view of the city and lake. The hotel is surrounded by woods with plenty of places to walk. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. It was a very warm few days though there was no air conditioning they gave us a large fan which worked adequately. The breakfast was excellent as was the food in the restaurant, it was lovely to be able to sit outside with the lovely views. Our room was spacious and best of all our dog was welcome everywhere in the hotel. Would definitely return.
