Stayed here for 1 night on my way back to Los Angeles. Loved everything about this hotel - classy and chic. The room is spacious, nice king sized bed with comfortable pillows, bedroom slippers and white linen toiletries. Although the bathroom was a little tiny even for a petite lady like myself BUT it didn't bother me. Book online using... More

Not only is the hotel charming and in a great location, it gets the prize for quality service with a smile. The staff really care that you are satisfied and happy with your accommodation. They could not have been more welcoming or gracious. We stayed here for 6 nights and would happily return on our next visit to Zurich.

OVERVIEW My fiancée and I have stayed in plenty of fine hotels over the years, but Hotel Europe, situated along the beautiful waterfront promenade in Zurich, easily approaches the top of our all-time favorites. As another reviewer said, it simply "cannot be better in any way," a sentiment with which we agree whole-heartedly. LOCATION: 5/5 First of all, getting to... More

The location is superb, staff is very friendly and the rooms are simply beautiful decorated. If you're looking for a nice, well designed and full of charm place to stay with your other half, that's the right place! The room was not big, but it's right on lake Zürich and the restaurant bar makes you think you're in France. So... More

Room 43 is dreamy. Service perfect and thoughtful. Location extremely convenient and very quiet. Everything you can possibly need all nearby. Friendly and helpful staff. Tastefully designed, furnished, and serviced. I urge you to stay here when in Zurich.

Within walking distance of trams, Old Town, the lake, the Opera House and Bahnhofstrasse, you couldn't ask for a better location. The hotel is in a historic building, more than 100 years old, so if you're looking for modern and trendy, go elsewhere. If you value service and charm in addition to a perfectly lovely room with all the needed... More
