“Good value friendly hotel with a very central location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012 via mobile

We stayed overnight in this hotel. It is very centrally located on the city's main street just opposite the station with its great link to the airport. The room was of average to good size for a city hotel but very well appointed. The service was top notch. The hotel has a great bar and lovely cafe. We did not eat at the fine dining French restaurant but had a wonderful breakfast there. This is highly recommended for a city break. We plan to stay again soon.

Our 3-nght stay at Hotel Schweizerhof Zurich in August was a perfect one. The hotel is 5 minutes walk across Zurich Central Station or you can request the hotel concierge "The Red Doorman" to come and help with lugguage. Fruits, candies, in-room coffee/tea and amenties are abundant. They even have a butler delivering newspaper, fruit, chocolate from room to room every evening. What a pleasant surprise! This is one of the very few hotels offering Japanese breafast (order in advance). A quality Swiss Hotel impressed us with every thoughtful details.

Excellent upmarket Hotel very central, traditional. Like everything in Zurich, very expensive - about 80% over UK, perhaps double US. I'm told everyone wants the Swiss Currency, some regard it like holding gold, and demand sends its price up. The Hotel does however throw in a super buffet breakfast.

Room Tip: You could spoil yourself - we did - choosing a junior suite, effectively 2 rooms divided by a curtai...

They pamper you and you feel they do make an effort to make you feel at home.

The room i got was a tiny single room, maybe too small - room 301. it was towards the inner yard and no nice view. There was a glasswall seperating the room and the bathroom so it felt bigger, but thw truth was is was small.

Its close to the trainstation so thats good if you need this to get around.

all in all it was exspensive when you take into consideratiin the room size.

This is clearly a hotel from the old commercial travelers days...the rooms are small and a bit tired. However, I have never been treated so well in any hotel!

The Schweizerhof Zurich is located immediately across from the train station. Upon arrival we were immediately offered a choice of beverages (including wine), fruit and chocolate, then escorted to our room. The room, although small, was well appointed. Shortly after arrival we received a basket with fruit and chocolate. Later that afternoon the "butler service" arrived with a selection of more fruit and chocolate.

The front desk helped us with reservations and information.

Although across from the train station there was no noise at all in the room which was comfortable. The hotel is conveniently located a few blocks from the tourist areas, and the following morming it was very easy to roll our luggage across the street and take the train to the airport.

Robes and other amenities were very nice, adequate closet space and though small, the room was well laid out and had plenty of outlets for use. Also free wifi.

I stayed at Schweizerhof hotel on last week of July for a vacation.
All the hotel information facilities like large well equipped comfortable room, excellent breakfast, great location you can find in details at the various hotel booking sites.
What you can’t find at these sites, is the impression from who spent 8 nights at this wonderful hotel.
The staff (reception desk, concierge, technical, dining room) was very professional, efficient, reliable and kind.
The service I had was extraordinary.
I was helped a lot the concierge for booking tours, buy train tickets (all this without extra commissions), advice for recommended restaurants, and get information of how to go to sites on town and out.
I have never met a technical service man that comes to replace a bulb in my room at 10 p.m., right away after I ask for that.
The fresh fruits and chocolate that I found every day in my room was not a “first day impression gift”, as I experienced in other hotels, as well as the fresh fruits in every hotel stage.
Without doubt, this is a very high class hotel that really cares for his guests.
I’m sure I’m going to stay again at Schweizerhof when I’ll be again at Zurich.

This was our second time at Schweizerhof and if anything it surpassed our first visit. The staff are wonderful, happy and very helpful. the breakfast is superb, the tastiest I`ve had anywhere and we had a meal in the restaurant for my birthday which was expensive but worth it. The room was lovely again - they upgraded us - and as we were leaving they presented me with a cake for my birthday which was wonderful. I`d recommend this hotel to anyone

Room Tip: ask for a room overlooking Bahnhof Strasse
