As a frequent traveler I am having pleasant surprises one after the other this year. Whenever I felt like being convinced about an hotel that I would not be able to find a better hotel than that one, I have found myself staying at a better one at my next trip. Not long after staying at Maison Souquet, Paris, which... More

We have stayed at the Schweizerhof regularly for over 20 years and it is perhaps one of the best hotels in the world. Quietly understated and modest in size, everything about it is excellent. Its location across from the Hauptbahnhof cannot be beat, and the staff at every level is excellent: from the maids who take care of your room... More

I stayed twice at the Schweizerhof in the course of a business trip to Zurich punctuated by a weekend out of town. I was extremely impressed by the focus on service. It is increasingly rare to find such attention to guest comfort shown by all members of staff. Breakfast is included in the room rate. The evening butler service is... More

I have to say that I was quite impressed, it's truly Swiss quality and hospitality, very accommodating, I would definitely stay there again! Ok let's start from the beginning: Staff helped us carry our luggage from the trains door until the hotel, free of charge! Staff greeted us warmly and efficiently, Gabrielle was very fast and professional ( just what... More

But why oh why does a person traveling on their own get a single bed? To be fair, it's a Germanic thing and not specific to this hotel (I've had it in other places in Switzerland and Germany too) but it is annoyingly! The bed itself is very comfortable and the staff are friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffet hasn't... More

We were delayed on the Euro star so we were late getting into Zurich. Thankfully the hotel is just across from the station. When we arrived at the reception desk we recived a lovely welcome and congratulations they also knew that we had been delayed. Upon arrival you are given a hot towel to freshen up with and a drink...

One of the Grand Hotels of Europe . Definitely a 5 star experience. We loved this hotel with first class service and lovely extras. Clean and comfortable with excellent food options. Can't fault it. Zurich is expensive and the hotel offered value for the first class experience and convenient location it offered. We would definitely stay again!

Chose this hotel for 2 night stay in Zurich as part of rail holiday to France, Italy and Switzerland. Could not have made a better choice! Lovely room and so quiet despite location on main road opposite Station. Expensive like everything else in Zurich but worth it for the quality of accommodation and service. All staff were both efficient and... More

Although little bit expensive but they do give you a service. The staff were excellent in welcoming us and overall accommodating us. The rooms were excellent. They send one person with a cart to our room and asks us if we need anything from the cart (chocolates and other things). The room is large with sufficient space. Beds can be... More

I stayed at this hotel for one night and it was a wonderful experience all round. The staff know the true meaning of hospitality. From the minute we entered, we were welcomed as guests, and not customers. The steamed towel, the offer of a drink at reception were all nice touches. I was allocated a room on the fourth floor,...
