“Choco-heaven!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

What an experience to stay at this hotel. We were met at the train station by a uniformed porter, who whisked us and our bags over to the hotel. At the reception, we were offered a glass of fresh orange juice and hot flannels while we checked in. We'd been upgraded to a room which would not normally register on our list of affordable places to stay, but was very comfortable and quiet. There was a basket of fruit and some little chocolates waiting for us, Bulgari toiletries and individual, electronically-adjustable mattresses. There was an unexpected visit from room service each evening, which was delightful for a chocoholic, but I don't want to spoil anyone else's surprise! Or maybe we're just easily pleased...

The staff deserve a special mention, as they were all extremely courteous, helpful and friendly. Impeccable.

The only thing we didn't have, is a view of anything other than a shopping street, but you can't have it all!

Room Tip: I bet they're all good!

After arriving from Paris on the evening of 16 March 2013we were greeted with the warmest of welcomes. Warm towels to freshen up with and a glass of sekt at reception! The porter carried our bags to our luxurious room which had everything you could require. Breakfast the next morning was just as enjoyable - with every kind of bread, cheese, cereals, cold meat, fruit etc., you could wish for, and a glass of champagne served by the charming Rene really made our stay one to remember. We will be back!

The hotel offers great service with friendly people in a perfect location. some rooms are bigger than others, but the beds were comfortable. the breakfast is terrific. being right across from the train station makes travel so easy. I highly recommend this hotel.

Both the hotel and restaurant were absolutely perfect in every way. So much attention to detail that I hardly want to reveal all the surprise extra touches that make this Hotel truly a delight. Drinks upon arrival, an afternoon fruit bowl and chocolates delivery, a sublimely delicious meal in the 'Restaurant La Soupiere' with the knowledgeable and friendly host 'Helmli', to more after dinner complimentary treats (twice!). A hop and a skip from the main train station and easy access on foot to all the main Zurich sights makes for the perfect location too. Whoever ignorantly said the Swiss were not friendly and helpful have clearly never stayed here.
I travel frequently for work and pleasure and this is one of the most lovely Hotels I have ever experienced. Book without delay!

Great place to stay if you are doing business in downtown Zurich. The welcome is excellent, the rooms are well appointed and clean. Internet is free and works well. The breakfast is very good and served in a personable and period dining room which would also work for a working breakfast. The hotel is right next to Zurich's most fashionable shopping street if that is what you are after. Highly recommend and good value for money.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back or the trams may keep you awake. Also there are a lot of smoking rooms so...

We travelled by train from Manchester to Budapest via Zurich and Vienna. The two highlights of this trip were the train ride from Zurich to Vienna and The Schweizerhof Hotel. We were met on the platform by one of the hotel's very smart staff who carried our suitcases over to the hotel. On check in we were given hot towels and a choice of drink (other hotels take note!). They also advised us of an upgrade to a corner room as it was our anniversary together with a bottle of Champagne delivered to the room by the butler.A big thank you to all the staff at the Schweizerhof, Your standards of service, courtesy and care are a benchmark for other hotels.

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!
