The location is great, just a few minutes walk to one of the train station plaza, and the Bahnhofstrasse, shopping street. I've stayed a couple of times and each time found it very clean, attractive, and quiet. Very good value!

We stayed at Hotel Glärnischhof on our first trip to Zürich. It was easy to find just two blocks from the Paradeplatz and we walked there from the Main Station in about fifteen minutes just straight down Bahnhofstrasse and to the right when you get to the Paradeplatz.

This hotel is not really centrally located but it is very close to the centre of Zurich. The price it offered was really good and that was the main reason we selected this place for our short stay. Our room was spacious and comfortable, the staff was friendly and overall our stay was short but quite enjoyable.
