I read the reviews and was hoping for a fabulous stay in Zurich. I have never felt so ripped off upon leaving a hotel. To say this hotel is expensive is an understatement. First this... More

Visited recently on our drive through Switzerland. I wish I would have stayed more than one night. Absolutely blew my wife away. Sooo romantic. She didn't want to leave. Room overlooking the canal on about the 4th floor. Had all the old world charm you'd expect traveling in luxury through Zurich. Very much the lifestyles of the rich and famous.... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Baur au Lac.

This is a very beautiful hotel with amazing (but very expensive) restaurants. I love the gym - had everything I needed and was clean and empty. Love that everything in the mini bar is free. Love the bedding and towels. Our room was beautiful. Staff was so nice. Enjoyed every meal I ate here.

Have just spent 1 night here. Wonderful place. Staff very friendly and relaxed. Comfortable rooms with excellent housekeeping. Breakfast is the best I have ever had in a hotel - delicious fruit; wonderful bakery selection. Expensive, of course, but in this case you really do get what you pay for.
