A large group of us popped in there after a hike. We were welcomed, even though we only ordered coffees. The food looked lovely and the setting incredible. I would like to go back with the kids and SUP there, hire Kayaks and check in for the weekend to make the most of this beautiful area.

Nice service, large rooms, good breakfast. However, the hotel is old. There is no a/c nor do the rooms shine for their modernity or design. On the other hand, rooms are large and the hotel is really quiet.

The Glarnerhof is perfectly located in the center of Glarus and next to the railway station. The rooms are adequately furnished - some more spacious than others, the service friendly and courteous and the food is great! This was not my first stay at the hotel and it will not be my last! This property is warmly recommended.

We have a night in this nice hotel in the heart of Glarus. The rooms are nice and spacious, the corridors and stairways, and lounge are historically furnished. Its a great location from which you can easily explore Glarus on foot.

Good friendly hotel with excellent location, facilities and friendly staff. Rooms look a little tired but with views like that who looks at the room decor anyway. English cable channels and a pc for guest use.

I stayed at this hotel for a single night in early March whilst on a business trip. The room was small, specifically for single occupancy, but the standard was good. The staff were friendly and welcoming. Views from the front of the hotel were great - the park below and the alps above, and on all sides. THe hotel was... More

A lovely place if you want to be close to everything in Glarus. Outside the hotel is a park with a fountain (that shuts down during the night), and a parkinglot for guests and public during the day. I stayed here over a month and always got a spot. The people there is really friendly and the food in the... More

Hotel Glarnerhof had plain bedrooms, but was in a great location and the view from our room was fabulous. The hotel is located across from the park so we could see the beautiful fountain from our window, and more improtantly, the amazing views of the Alps. Food at restaurant was pricey, but phenomenal. Staff very accommodating. Only complaint is that... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
“Our small grand hotel” is centrally located in Glarus – the smallest capital city in the world. Built in 1861, this traditional hotel is a harmonious blend of modern requirements and nostalgic charm. It is an ideal base for business travellers, leisure seekers and active, sports-minded holidaymakers alike. The large, modern rooms afford spectacular views over the mountains of the Glarner Mittelland. From small, tasty snacks, regional specialities and juicy, charcoal-barbecued treats to the gourmet menu, the “Le Gourmet” restaurant and the garden terrace leave nothing to be desired. The extensive wine list offers an exquisite selection, ranging from the small Glarus vineyard to the vast expanses of Spain and Bordeaux. Our three banqueting suites provide a perfect setting for conferences, seminars and festive occasions for up to 200 people. ... more   less

“I would recomend to stay above the entrance like I did, on the right side (standing with your back against the entrance) of the hotel there is a main road through Glarus, but there is a house in between to take the sound...but then you cant see the mountains. And on the left side is a train-station and the outdoor dining during summer.”
