#8 of 147 hotels in Zurich
Travelers' Choice
The Baur au Lac has the discerning tastes of its guests to thank for the leading position it has maintained for more than 175 years in the international luxury hotel industry. Set in its own park, the hotel enjoys a unique location overlooking the lake and the Alps - and yet is still but a few minutes' walk from the Paradeplatz financial district and the Bahnhofstrasse, Zurich's celebrated shopping high street. While offering the ultimate in comfort and privacy, the rooms and suites have been equipped with every, yet hardly noticeable technical refinement. The large marble bathrooms with heated floor and daylight match up to the highest demands of comfort, design and equipment.

First time at the Baur au Lac, the team made us feel at home all the way. We had a wonderful short stay and the rooms were beautifully designed just as expected from such a great luxury hotel. We will be back!

In Zurich for Christmas shopping, we enjoyed a wonderful short stay at this iconic hotel. The room was very spacious, with a sumptuous and comfortable bed, quiet and with pleasant lighting. Bathroom with great amenities. But overall, staff is the hotel greatest asset. Thank you very much

Great hotel. The decor is amazing. The details in the room are just perfect. Service is wonderful as well. But housekeeping is rude. I have long hair and tangles easily. I asked for extra conditioner and the lady said we already put one! I said know but I need two and she was thoroughly annoyed. Kind of weird attitude for such a high end hotel. The restaurants and lounges are superb. I would stay again but I would avoid interaction with housekeeping!!!!!! PS I love that the windows open.

This is the third time I have told TA that the BaL is the finest hotel in the world. It’s almost biblical. Did not Peter deny our Lord three times? Is not the Trinity made f Three? Thus, for the third time, I am going to utter the immortal phrase of which Man should be made aware. The Baur au Lac in Zurich is, was, and always will be the finest hotel in the world. Full Stop

I enjoyed a fantastic stay at this beautiful property in October 2021. From check-in to check-out my stay was flawless. My room was beautifully appointed and very comfortable. The entire team was so welcoming and friendly and could not have been kinder. I would like to extend a special "Thank you" to the Concierge team who ensured my stay was so special. Thank you very much to Khalid, Imad, Jérémie and Roberto. I also enjoyed the wonderful dining options-both Baur's and Le Hall. I look forward to returning again soon to this exceptional property.
