Recent guest reviews

The was very quiet, friendly staff, good location, we will definitely stay again, when we come back to Zürich. The breakfast was also very good. It might be better, if the mechanical key would be changed to the electric one.

Best staff and very friendly hotel in excellent location. The hotel is just next to the main railway station Zürich HB. Excellent for all shopping. The hotel staff is very helpful to guide you in all your queries.

Superb location across from the train station, with super markets close by. The service was excellent and great breakfast. rate was a little high but probably due to the peak season as it coincides with Zuricch Pride event

Centrally located by the main railway station and close to the old town, a must see location with an interesting history. Comfortable rooms with all amenities of five star accommodation, clean, well maintained and serviced by professional friendly staff. Offers a good breakfast. After 17 hours of traveling, to have an early rest l ordered room service dinner. The beef burger couldn’t have been worse and French fries tasteless. I left half the burger and all the fries. Probably the worst meal I have had in any hotel. I have not considered this in rating the hotel.

Centrally located in the heart of Zurich. Our room 505 was very nice. Separate room for the bed and bath with curtains dividing a lounge space with TV and chairs. A little hallway and extra door to reduce noise. Very quiet. Lovely linen and towels. The house coats were super nice. Beautifully renovated. Impressed with the bathroom reno and very functional for a small space. Housekeeping was quick and timely. Fantastic breakfasts that were included in the cost of our room. Loved the coffee machine and coffee in our room. Bottled water was complimentary. However, the price of food in the hotel’s restaurant was pricey so we ate out for lunch and dinner. They had umbrellas available as it rained here. Highly recommend this place.

The historic Hotel Schweizerhof Zurich is a wonderful hotel in an excellent position directly opposite the Bahnhof and around the corner from the Bahnhofstrasse, the main shopping street of Zurich. The welcome was warm: a glass of sparkling wine, the check-in friendly and efficient, the porter with the bags took us to our deluxe junior suite. Perfect service, which continued for the rest of the stay. All the staff were marvellous. The junior suite was quite luxurious – the bedroom and sitting room separately divided as it should be in a suite, the lovely marble bathroom had twin sinks, a separate rain shower and bath. After turn down, the butler visits the rooms with a range of goodies: chocolates, yoghurt, magazines. Such a nice touch. The breakfast was very good (but the chef is challenged by poached eggs which were rock hard!). The bar is small but delightful and the restaurant (we had lunch) was very good. And for whatever reason, this hotel is classified as a four star. It felt more like a five star luxury hotel to us.

I loved this small hotel, across from the train station. Lovingly cared for to a high standard. This was an excellent place to recover from jet lag. The room was comfortable and soothing. Both the bistro and bar had excellent food and service. Tremendous breakfast. All in an ideal location, walking distance to old town. A classic.

What makes this hotel special is the staff. They were very accommodating in every way. The restaurant served excellent food. The coffee shop served some of the best coffee I've ever had. The staff from the bellman to the consierge to the maid staff were so pleasant and helpful. It is conveniently located to the railway station as well as the old city. Everything is in very close walking distance. There are many restaurants close by or you can dine at their fine restaurant on site. I highly recommend this hotel.

Just landed in Zurich and opted to stay in this beautiful hotel.. Clean and within a few walking distance from the train station... Excellent quality Internet service and good staff.. Recommended.....

This lovely hotel situated right across the street from Zurich HB main Station and is at the corner of the main shopping street . The location is perfect . All the staff were highly professional and always wear a smile . One gets a sense that you are being looked after in this hotel . Highly recommended .
