Nice hotel with very good views

This is a traditional hotel in Zurich. The location is excellent and it is very well located. It does need some updating and I was surprised to find that their restaurant had very little movement. We had a very good discount, but I don't think it is worth if you have to pay full price.

Asked for a room with lake view and was not disappointed. As montreux was expensive we decided- since we had a balcony- we would have dinner and watch the sunset from there. Bought food from the local supermarket downstairs and the staff were so accommodating they even gave us plates knives and forks. No tea making facilities but once again... More

It was a must to take a menu in order to estimate chef's imagination and skills. And it was really incredible! I would strongly recommend to try Kalbsruecken, seasonal offers (now it is white truffle) and to ask for somelier's advice - it will definitely add spark to the gastronomic experience. And it is really one of the finest restaurants... More

Stayed for one night travelling with the dog, they brought her a large bed, dog bowls and mats. Our room overlooked the lake with a large balcony. The hotel is in a great location and I have stayed here before but it is dated and needs updating it is by no means cheap. The staff are really friendly but sadly... More

We have enjoyed the summer menu "Tentation de homard et Champagne". It's a 4 course menu and with each serving, you will get a glass (or more) champagne which machtes the food in a perfect way. It was really fantastic. Great food, great champagne, very friendly staff. It is not cheap, but worth the money. The restaurant itself is very... More

From a restaurant like the Eden au Lac, I expected more. We had their traditional "hors d'oeuvres chaud" dish, which they serve since the WWI or so. It was good but just not as good not as I expected it to be considering the reputation of the Hotel/restaurant and its prices. Also, the service was mediocre and unsatisfying. However, the... More

Went to the terrace in a sunny afternoon in April. Great place to relax for a drink and snack overlooking the lake- good list of direction of drinks and food.

Stayed 2 nights in February 2014 at this expensive hotel. The staff are extremely friendly and professional, and I had a room on the 2nd Floor with a small balcony overlooking the lake. Had a very pleasant dinner on Friday evening, but we were the only guests and someone else paid so I can't judge the value for money. Breakfast... More

This is the fine dining restaurant of the Eden Au Lac hotel. Decor is classic, service is fine star friendly staff. Food was great a pianist was in attendance playing classical music. I opted for a salad and lobster bisque followed by turbot served on a bed of couscous. The mixture of tastes was pleasing. For desert a light plum... More
