We stayed there for our anniversary. They put some animal-shaped towels on our bed to make it special (would have been nice to throw in a room with a view or other small indulgence!). The hotel's sheep theme can be found everywhere and makes things very cozy. The bed was very comfortable, the room and bathroom very clean, and the... More

Charming hotel and very gracious staff...we thoroughly enjoyed our 2 nights at the Hotel Europe. We had only 2 nights in Zurich and this hotel ticked all of the boxes, old world charm, beautifully furnished rooms, and a terrific location.

Your first impression of a hotel is how you're greeted upon arrival and Hotel Europe didn't disappoint us! Sebastien and Eva were extremely welcoming. This French inspired, immaculately clean hotel has more charm than most hotels in Paris. Our room, although not large, was tastefully decorated & comfortable with great rooftop & (sideways) lake views. Every evening we would find... More

I usually don't write many reviews but I had to write this one. Me and my family finished a 5 day trip to Switzerland.

We loved this beautiful historic hotel!. Great location and tastefully decorated. The room had high ceilings, a small balcony and very comfortable bed. Complimentary water bottles are just one of the special touches this hotel offers . The staff was superb, and you could tell it was family owned and staffed. Easy walk to historic Zurich; Lake Zurich is half... More

This was the warmest most tastefully decorated hotel in Switzerland! The room was spacious and extremely comfortable with all of the needed amenities. The entire staff was very professional, gracious and helpful! We highly recommend this hotel. We plan to return in the near future! Dr. John Hays and Laura Hays

We have stayed two nights before going on an rhine river tour in this beautiful historic hotel. We felt home from the very first second.

We started our trip in Zurich two weeks ago and enjoyed our two-night stay, with one caveat. The pros: great customer service, convenient location (both from train and to the rest of city), quiet location, tastefully decorated accommodations, comfortable room, room available for our early arrival from overseas, non-feather pillows for us allergy sufferers, comfortable beds, snacks in the lobby....
