I stayed at Hotel Glaernischhof over the weekend of Ironman Zurich and would highly recommend this hotel for anyone thinking of participating next year. The hotel is also a great location for anyone just wanting a break in Zurich, being it is close to the lake, the old town and near to many central tram links. All the hotel staff... More

Just checking out after our second stay. Can't beat how helpful and professional the staff is here. They are all so accommodating. The hotel has a fantastic location. Easy to walk to so many places.

Our triple room has been upgraded on arrival, new room was exceptionally spacious and lovely.

My wife and I stayed for two nights in June. The hotel is ideally located centrally in Zurich right next to the shopping areas and a ten minutes walk from the station. However it's on a very quiet street so you don't feel as if you are in the city centre. The big plus is that the lake is only... More

The hotel is pretty well situated with regards its location to the lake and other amenities of Zurich but I found it to be a bit pokey. My initial room was occupied by someone else and so after a while I was allocated another room. The room was not that well appointed, the bed was hard as rock (apparently it... More

While I only stayed one night, I was quite happy with the service, location and price paid. The hotel was clean and did the little things - offering free water, fruit, wifi.

Rate CHF 375 for a double room incl breakfast too high looking at quality and services. Good hotel, but not worth four stars. On arrival heating was on in hotel room, despite it was plus 20 degrees Celsius outside. Heating every day on in breakfast/dinner rooms. Duvet too hot in spring/summer.
