The perfect location either for business meetings or for sightseeing. A few minutes walk from Paradeplatz, the heart of Bahnhofstrasse, and near the old city and the lake. The room was spacious, comfortable and very clean. Bed was perfect. Fast WiFi. The staff is friendly and helpful. Breakfast is very good. A pleasure.

Excellent location in old town, right near the river. From the first moment ( offering fresh apple juice) the staff was extremely helpful. Our room was ample, clean with modern amenities ( no hot water kettle for coffee if that matters). It was very quiet as it was about 3 feet from adjoining building ( ok, for us that there... More

We arrived at Hotel Helmhaus after a long day of travel from Detroit, MI. When we arrived the clerk who assisted us was very warm. She offered us apple juice made from local apples which was divine. Our room wasn't ready (we were early) so she recommended a nearby restaurant that was fabulous. When we returned our room was ready.... More

The staff gave me a good service when I asked about tours she even booked for me and included the tram ticket so I didn't have a need to buy somewhere else. All paid with credit card no need to buy suise francs.

Spent a pleasant night at the Helmhaus -- our lone night in Switzerland during a driving tour of Germany and Italy. The location is great--in the old town, not right on but very close to the river (so less noise at night), and a few steps from a tram stop by the same name (Helmhaus). However, it's a bit hard...

I recently stayed at Hotel Helmhaus for one night. The location is excellent for walking around the city with lots of places near by to eat and drink. The staff at the hotel are excellent, friendly and efficient. The welcome drink is a nice touch. The negatives were that the mattress was uncomfortable. Unfortunately i was woken up a few... More

My stay at Helmhaus was a highlight of my time in Zurich. Wonderful location. Shopping and restaurants in every direction. In walking distance to a lot of places and to tram station that could get you other places. Rarely do I feel as comfortable in a hotel room as I do at home. But the rooms were clean and very... More

We ended our 8 day tour of Switzerland at Hotel Helmhaus and had a very nice stay. The hotel's location is central, the rooms are efficient but ample by European standards, the breakfast was superb, and the staff friendly and accommodating in an "above and beyond" manner. (Every request including a later than normal checkout was cheerfully and completely answered.)... More
