“Good hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2009

As the previous reviewers have already said this is a good hotel in a great location, I think what really makes this hotel unique is the level of service you get from the staff. It is really up to five star standards. The ''business centre'' does only consist of two computers but I never really had to wait to get onto one and if you did want to use it out of hours your room key opened the door to the room.
Received really good service from room service.

What an amazing hotel. Apart from its great location, across the street from the Rail Station and close to all downtown attractions, the rooms are so comfortable and the staff is right on the ball. I was treated with the efficiency and courtesy of a business traveller and I was only on vacation for one night. The beds are the best in the world!

It is my great pleasure to review my stay at the wonderful Hotel Schweizerhof Zurich I booked the room when my itinerary changed and needed a quick place to sleep for one night in between destinations. I did not expect or anticipate that my experience at this hotel would be so amazing. Why?... the convenient location across from the train station and close to all major attractions, the expertly trained, top notch, personal, and friendly staff, the beautiful lobby and the cozy comfortable classy rooms, the delicious champagne breakfast served in the stunning dining area. And to top it off the image of the iconic red door man representing something both modern and old world. In fact I was so taken by the red doorman image that I asked one of the staff if there were anything I could have with the image on it. He thought he might be able to find an extra t-shirt for me and 10 minutes later at my door was this gentleman with a t-shirt in a lovely hotel bag and extra chocolate. It was only later that I learned that the gentleman was in fact the head maître d' of the entire hotel who took the time in his day to bring me something I will always cherish. Thank you Helmut for the gift and the absolute pleasure of staying at your hotel.

We stayed for three nights and used this hotel as a base for travelling by train around the country's lakes. TIP = buy the family rail value package from the Reiseburo in the station for unlimited travel vs buying individual trips......we wasted a great deal of money here.
The hotel staff we exceptionally freindly and, whilst far from cheap, you pay for the excellence of the service, location and food.
The worst part of the stay were the pillows which certainly had been in use since WW Two!
all in all, an enjoyable stay.

I took my family and stayed here for a total of 5 nights. The location is just PERFECT. Stones thow from the Main Station and a great walk along Banhofstrasse (Zurich's Oxford Street). The rooms were clean and of a good size. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. August was a bit warm, and the airconditioning in our rooms was a bit weak. Can get a bit stuffy at times. Otherwise, a great place for all.

  • Liked — Clean rooms, friendly staff, great central location
  • Disliked — Airconditioning in August was weak. Did not cool the rooms.

The location of this hotel is admittedly great, but on the flip side the car parking is three blocks away which is tedious if you have a lot of luggage and you can hear the traffic of the streets and the train station somewhat despite the triple glazing. The best thing about this hotel was the lovely breakfast and the excellent service that came with it but otherwise, well, it would take a bit more than a few free chocolates to impress a girl like me...
