“Great base for first trip to Zurich”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

Nothing was too much trouble for the very friendly staff in this hotel. They started by meeting us on the train platform with a luggage trolley which was swiftly loaded and transported to our rooms. Rooms were very comfortable and well stocked and the little extras were a nice touch. An extra course at dinner, water on leaving and the offer of chocolate each afternoon. Loved the styling and the ever-present brand of the hotel.

This place gets a 5 star for room quality and service level, with a higher end breakfast thrown in. No pools and I didn't check for spas, but this seems to cater to shorter stay, business oriented customers. This wouldn't discourage me from using it for family purposes if you can afford the overhead; excellent location if you have lots of luggage from the train, and short walk down Bahnhofstrasse to the old town. High end restaurant appeared to be mothballed, but other food outlets available in the hotel.

Room Tip: Standard rooms are very good, so upgrades aren't necessary unless you are really trying to impre...

We have stayed at the Schweizerhof many times. It seems like our home away from home In Zurich. The Hotel is comfortable, the staff are helpful and friendly, the breakfast is yummy and the location can't be beat. I want to return right now.

This is my second stay at this hotel located across the street from the train station. The service is impeccable, room was very nice with a very comfortable bed. Lots of extras - chocolates, turn down service, fruit in the halls, water when we left, etc. the breakfast is extra good. Eggs, omelets, fruit, breads, fresh squeezed orange juice on and on.

We stopped here for an overnight break on our rail trip to Venice.
We were met at the station which was a really nice touch.
When we got to the hotel we were offered hot towels and refreshment.
The room was spotless and well furnished, also had sweets chocolates and fruit.
The beds were superb each bed had it's own reclining sysyem. We had a evening mea lwhich was beautifully cooked. As was the breakfast. The attention to detail in this hotel is second to none. We cannot wait to stay again.

Room Tip: We were in 508

How can you beat the location of the Hotel Schweizerof in Zurich. A quick ride from the airport by car, taxi or train, right across the street from Zurich’s primary train station, and steps away from the Bahnhofstrasse arguably one of the most expensive and exclusive shopping avenues in the world. Take a stroll next to the river to the lake and dine at any one of the dozens of nearby wonderful restaurants. This is a luxury hotel and priced accordingly. That said, the rooms are beautifully appointed but are small as is the lobby. This is typical for old European hotels but if you are not used to it can feel a bit confining. That said, with so many wonderful things right outside your doorstep, why spend your day inside the hotel. Extremely clean, safe and with excellent service, I recommend this hotel.
