I rarely deviate from my preferred hotel chain, but took a chance with this because of the recommendations. Absolutely phenomenal from the time we checked in to the time we checkout out. First of all, you can not beat the location. It is directly across from the main train station in Zurich. I thought this would be a problem with... More

We chose this hotel because of its reputation and location as we were pre-advised about how expensive Zurich is & we planned to arrive from the airport by train. Easy walk even with luggage. Wonderful welcome, extremely accomodating staff. However, bu US standards, the room was extremely small, with room for only 1 suitcase and no where to put clothes... More

The only downside with the Schweizerhof is that a few of the rooms are on the small side. However, others aren't. While it isn't on the lake it more than makes up for this by its convenience right opposite the station. Inside, quality and attention to detail are the watchwords. Always immaculately clean, it has become my standard hotel for... More

Were booked in here en route to Venice. Location brilliant as we were travelling by train and it is across the square from the station. We were given a glass of sparkling wine while we checked in and there was fresh fruit all over the hotel to help yourself from. Breakfast was excellent and when we asked for more coffee,... More

Over the years I have stayed in many a Zurich hotel.....this is the first one that feels like home away from home. As a travel agent, I am constantly looking for hotels that have the right balance between location, service, style, friendliness and some features that set them apart from the rank and file. This is one! It is perfectly... More

Location: possibly the best location for a leisure trip to Zurich. Located right at the beginning of the Bahnhofstrasse, you can wander out to the shops, restaurants and bars. Also just opposite the railway station so no taxi needed, trams are also located just outside the hotel. Best city centre location available. Service: smooth and friendly. It was nice to... More
