Hotel Glarnerhof

Traveler (14)
Room & Suite (6)
Dining (5)


“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.

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

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

"The rooms don't have airco, so if you are going to stay here in the Summer, make sure you don't get a room facing the train station."
"Book a room at the front, for a better view of the park"
"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."
