It was a magical lunch. Thank you to the organizers and sponsors. I know from experience how much work goes into holding a successful and profitable fundraising event. I believe you did indeed succeed in raising a lot of money for Pinocchio's counseling center for parents and children, so, once again... Congratulations & chapeau!

My 2-day stay at the Baur au Lac with 2 children aged 8 and 4 1/2 was just perfect. The room was huge and tastefully decorated.

We have just spent three glorious days in this wonderful Hotel...no wonder it's amongst the Leading Hotels in the world category and deservedly so.

A classic with wonderful accommodation and excellent service. A must stay if you plan on citing the city. It is one of my favorite hotels in Switzerland and has been constant in perfection every since my first visit twenty years ago. Highly recommended for a vacation.

This hotel has the traditional touch with elegance and service of the old school but with modern equipment. I really recommend it if you are in business in Zurich. I stayed in the top floor in a Junior Suite, a lot of space in all the room, but a great walking closet and a huge bathroom.
