I love returning to Zurich so that I can stay here - they are so friendly, the rooms are clean, comfortable, the wifi is of good quality, and it feels well looked after (as do the guests!). The breakfasts are delicious and have lots of local produce, breads, and delicious coffee. Restaurant, both from the hotel and the neighboring fish... More

We have stayed at the Glarnishof on 4 occasions, with our family and as a couple, enjoying their hospitality, our rooms have always been spottlessly clean, with comfortable beds, little nicetities in the room, swiss chocolates, fruit, water, bathroom toiletries etc the reception staff are outstanding, together with their porters who are always helpful and smiley. Our last visit we... More

After a long flight we arrived early and were expecting that we would have to drop our luggage and come back to check in a few hours later but we were so pleased that our room was ready and we were able to have a shower before heading out to explore. Our room was very spacious with comfortable beds. The... More

The hotel location is perfect for both business and pleasure. It is located near all tram stations, near very good restaurants, shopping and tourists' attractions. The hotel personal are very polite and professional. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Very good breakfast and dinner at the hotel.

Nice centrally located with (paying) car parking outside. Room clean, minibar and pay TV free of charge (as well as wi fi). Breakfast ok but fresh orange juice would be expected. Currently they have a large construction next door. You will wake up at 7am sharp during the week.

Generally prefer 5 star hotels especially when traveling abroad but this was a last minute trip so options were limited. This hotel is in a great location, rooms were spacious and service top notch. You are greeted with a welcome fruit and chocolate plate and everything in the mini bar is included as well as coffee in the room. Very... More

The single room is very small. Claustrophobic.. Service excellent. Very clean. Good breakfast. Prices in Switzerland are unbelievable high for everything. A salad for 20 dollars is normal and even 8 dollars for a coffee..

Had a wonderful experience at Hotel Glaernischhof. The hotel is located in a terrific part of Zurich. Near shops, trams, train station, the lake and old city. The staff could not be more accommodating especially Noel. Breakfast was excellent. The rooms are modern. It was a very good choice for us.

Though, it looks small at first arriving, it's very good hospitality. Very nice room and good location with reasonable price. It was raining whole night on one day that we visited. This made us have to stay and have dinner at the hotel. found excellent food and services.
