I ended up staying at this hotel last minute, so I think I ended up with one of their least impressive rooms as every other room in the place was sold out. Nevertheless, I found the hotel to be an all-around good experience. The staff was friendly and professional, the breakfast was good, the rooms were a nice size (and... More

The location of the hotel is convenient as shops, restaurants and transportation is just a walk away. The reception staff were very friendly and happy to help; overall amazing service provided to suit our needs. Rooms were very clean, not a speck of mold or dirt in the bathrooms which is a first for me. Marbled walls and floors speculated... More

Location is perfect, within walking distance of the main shopping area - Bahnofstrasse as well as the station. A tram stop is just a minute away. The hotel is described as a business hotel, mainly because it does not have multiple restaurants, a swimming pool and other luxuries of a five star hotel. But, the rooms are excellent, as are...

We stayed in the Hotel Glaernischhof for 3 nights in July before departing for a scientific congress in Bern for 3 nights, a 45 minute train ride from Zurich. The rooms are very comfortable, air conditioned, with great beds that staff are willing to modify depending on your desire for more or less stiffness or softness and everything between. They...

Great hotel, good central location, with easy walking distance to the old town and access to the lake. Nice big room, very comfortable beds, large bathroom with good room facilities and a good choice at the buffet breakfast.

The hotel is in an ideal, quiet location in the city centre, a few minutes walk from the lake, Bahnhofstrasse and three very short tram stops from the train station, get off at Paradeplatz. We used the train from Zurich airport which was very easy, and like all Swiss public transport runs like clockwork. The hotel itself is well maintained,... More

I just returned from a week long stay and the hotel was outstanding in every way. For an unknown reason I was upgraded from a single room to their spacious relaxation room without even asking for the upgrade. Beds were very comfortable. There is a flat panel TV, safe and mini-frig stocked with water, soda, beer and chocolate all free... More

Great staff, very kind and helpful. Room was beautiful and sooo comfortable. The air conditioning was great and real, was necessary during the day in mid July. Breakfast was very good and tasty. Close to all shopping and to beautiful Lake Zurich.

Clean hotel, short, less then 10 minute walk to Banhofshtrasse shopping district or the Lake. Would like to recommend for business or leisure travelers. Good breakfast, with coffee, smoked salmon, or the variety of the cold cut meats. Good quality supportive mattress and the pillows, delivers great refreshing sleep after transatlantic flight. Complimentary, water in the room, free Wi-Fi, good... More
