“Will be back”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

Excellent service. Friendly and efficient and does not feel "forced" or faked as in so many hotels. And this stands for everybody we came across. The reception and the breakfast service is truly exceptional pleasant/friendly / efficient.
The small touches like: fruit everywhere; the trolley round in the evenings ( so unexpected!) ; the variety, and quality of the breakfast buffet ( puts the Savoy to shame, truly!).René ( at breakfast) is simply one in a million.
Excellent wifi! excellent toiletries ; a decent shower; good bed. Highly recommended.

Stayed at Hotel Schweizerhof Zurich on a family holiday in Zurich. The location makes it just so easy to goto the Railway Station which is bang opposite the Hotel. The Main Bus Stand is just 2 tram stops away. Indian Restaurants are just 2-3 Tram stops away.

Excellant Breakfast having your Choice of Hot Egg, Hot Chocolate, Buns, Cereals etc!!
Courteous Smiling Staff !!

A Must Stay !

Room Tip: A Hotel Room facing the HB Railway Station is highly Recommended to see the hustle bustle of this Eu...

We stayed there with friends for six days before joining a tour. We arrived by train so the location was excellent - just across the road. The staff were professional, friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble for them to make our stay memorable and wonderful. We felt that we were treated like royalty. Our room was comfortable, very clean and serviced daily. The bed and pillows were of good quality and comfortable. We dined at both the Cafe Gourmet and the Restaurant La Soupiere and found the food to be of high quality with such wonderful service. Breakfast was so good and we looked forward to it each day. We couldn't help but have some kind of dessert or pastry at the end of our breakfast. It was too good to pass up. Loved the man with the chocolate trolly each day - complimentary. Would go back at the drop of a hat.

Room Tip: We received an upgrade. Our room was near the courtyard and was very quiet however there was no vie...

I arrived on a Saturday am for the Zurich Parade very jetlagged. I was extremely happy the staff were able to accomadate an early check in. Room itself was clean and similar to that of a Sheraton in the USA. At night room was quiet and good for resting after my long day. The most refreshing thing that really stood out was the friendliness of the staff and their great service throughout my stay. I have no clue the cost of my room for I was there on business but would stay there again when visiting Zurich.

I stayed there recently after a night on the town. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful.
The room I stayed in seemed a little old fashioned and I was surprised to see, that they still use real keys.
The whole place seemed very clean and there were nice little details in terms of customer satisfaction (i.e. free apples in front of the elevator, a little bag with assorted chocolates upon departure etc.). The hotel is located centrally and I would certainly recommend it to anyone traveling to Zurich.

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...
