When my normal hotels were full this week i checked in with Hotel Schwan in Horgen. Very nice place with small well equipped rooms in a recently renovated old building in the heart of Horgen. Breakfast in the resaturant on the ground floor was excellent and the team working there was very supportive (even if i did get locked out... More

The manager Rudy, and his warm and personal staff, provided me a great stay. I was here on business and I felt very much at home. The restaurant was a great surprise...to find such authentic Italian cuisine here in Horgen, Switzerland! I highly recommend this wonderful hotel and taverne.

A friend and I thought this place looked nice and ordered a carafe of the house white. It was not large, 500ml at most. I was shocked to be charged chf40, yes, 40 for a casual couple of glasses of wine on a patio. Even in expensive Switzerland I would have expected chf16-24. I spoke to the manager who told... More

We had the fantastic tasting menu for our dinner. The food, staff and service was exemplary. Attention to detail good. Lovely atmosphere. We will most definitely be going back sooner rather than later. A great gem of a find in Horgen.

Absolutely fantastic boutique hotel with charming rooms and ambiance in the historic building just in the midst of old Horgen! The most friendly personnel I have ever met, exceptional. Restaurant is a top class facility with excellent menu and outdoor seating around the small fountain, quite expensive though. in the morning the restaurant serves breakfast which is tiny but very...

The rooms in this hotel are charming, and the management so helpful. I specified that I would do a lot of computer work, and Betty put us in just the right room for this. It seemed so homey and cosy, going down to breakfast and dinner in the restaurant. In the summer it is lovely to eat outside at the... More

The manager, Frau Heider, is rude and impatient. I made a reservation by telephone, then called back to ask for an email confirmation and she gave me a "lecture" about "this isn't America, things are more slow here in Switzerland." Rude and unnecessary. During checkout, the woman handling our payment received a phone call right in the middle of helping... More

We stayed in Radisson and Bahia, Iberostar and Grand du Cap-Ferrat but in this hotel we got real calm and pleasure. Even the tolling of the church bell couldn't destroy this mood and gave more admire of the hotel and the Horgen place (really can't explain why because at home I switched off the sound of all the clocks).

Small hotel in a original antique house with small but cosy room incl. flat TV and modern bathrooms. Excellent location at the heart of Horgen, altough the nearby church bells make it a bit noisy in the morning. Hotel staff are extremely helpful and friendly. Breakfast is very good. Restaurant is excellent, super food and good service. My absolute favorite... More
