“Traditional first-class hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

Excellent hotel close to the Central Station in Zurich. The service is really immaculate. They even have a butler-service at night, one member of staff - in my case a distiguished gentleman in his 60s- knocked on the door to see if I would like to have a magazin or newspaper or chocolate or something else before bedtime. The breakfast is also excellent. Well spent money!

Evety year we visit Zurich on our way to the slopes and every year we stay here. And it never disappoints! Old fashioned comfort and service! Clean, comfy and professional! From the evening treats trolley, to chocolates and water at reception to the classic breakfast... Your feel like you have stepped back into a grand old hotel of the golden era of travel but with modern conveniences! The beds are comfortable, the bathrooms excellent and toiletries plentiful! Room service is excellent and the jams at breakfast are home made! A classic hotel and convenient for the train station across the street with all rooms soundproofed! Thanks for setting the standard... Old school is still the best!

Room Tip: Inside courtyard upper floor is very quiet!

I have stayed in many hotels during my travel and some had inconsistency between price and service. However, nobody can beat the Schweizerhof in Zuerich. Extremely, small rooms with premium 5 star price. You will be greeted at 16:00 in the afternoon with a statement that you still have to wait for a check-in time at 16:30. Unbelievable. I have also lost my trust in the trip-advisor advice after this debacle

Conveniently located in front of the main railways station. Staff is very welcoming and nice. Rooms are a bit small. Nice amenities in the bathroom, and free tea & coffee facilities in room too.
Good breakfast buffet with delightful home made jam. Free Wifi gives additional value.

We were on our way to Italy via a self- booked train ride thru the alps. Zurich was an overnight stop and after viewing trip advisor selected this hotel for its proximity to the train station. A porter met us at the Eurostar, smiled and called us by name and took us straight across to the hotel. We were offered wine, given a warm towel to freshen and quickly checked in and escorted to our room. A short time later we were sent fruit and when I asked for additional mineral water it was brought promptly. Afternoon butler brought choice of snacks and a wonderful selection of chocolate. Evening turndown was wonderful to see on our return from dinner and made us feel ready for bed. I found the hotel to be clean, well-furnished and modern. The bed slept well and I rather liked the duvet. Positives: close to train, beautiful room, clean, plenty of toiletries, modern bathroom, wonderful and welcoming staff, porter service to and from train, great map and directions from staff for a quick walk around. Cons: sorry just don't have any!

We enjoyed only one night at the Hotel Schweizerhof, but we're returning in June. We were greeted with a complimentary welcome drink and shown to our room immediately. It was elegantly appointed, updated, and immaculate, yet had a historic atmosphere. From the doorman to everyone at the front desk, and the bellman we could not have asked for better service. When we checked out very early the following morning (6 a.m.) we found coffee, tea, juice, and croissants waiting in the lobby--at no additional charge. Being able to walk from/to the train station was a major convenience. The location allowed us to wander Bahnhofstrasse, Old Town, and the area around Lake Zurich--all without a taxi ride. We found restaurants galore of every type in every direction. We are returning with our four teen-aged grandchildren in June. The reservation office worked with us to identify three interconnecting rooms that will accommodate all of us comfortably. They returned our inquiry within seven hours and offered two alternatives. If only U.S. hotel staff (even in five star hotels) were as helpful, prompt, and service-minded as the Schweizerhof staff.... Is it expensive? Yes--but so is all of Zurich. Is it worth the price? Yes.

Room Tip: Ask for advice from the reservation office if you are unsure about the room type to reserve. They wi...
