It cant get more central than this, just a few minutes from Banhofstrasse, the station and the lake. The rooms are comfortable but many of rooms have bathrooms with see-through glass panels - some completely so, others with a strip opening into the rooms, so it is best to check.

The food and service in the bar was exceptional. We were able to walking to just about everything in the downtown and old town. Close to train station, shopping, restaurants, casino and the lake. Take the walk up the bell tower in the old Cathedral for best view of Zurich

My husband and I stayed at the Glockenhof for two nights in October 2014. We had booked a standard room, which was ok, but kind of "smallish". When we entered the room, we were surprised by a beautiful heart made of rose petals (not natural, of course) decorating the double bed. I don't know if this was because I had... More

As a woman traveling alone, I felt very safe in this hotel. The location near the railroad station made it easy to travel anywhere! Trams and taxis were also easily accessible. The hotel itself is very comfortable,and the staff is well informed and courteous.

This was a second visit to the hotel a year and a half later. The location is good. The service is crisp and professional with helpful staff. A standard room on the 2nd floor was fine.

I had a great stay at this hotel. Unfortunately, only for one night. I'd have loved to stay longer. The bed was super comfortable, the room (a double room) really big and modern in a century old building. I really liked the contrast of the inside and outside. The bathroom was also really big, it had a huge glass wall... More
