2020 Travelers' Choice Best of the Best
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.

I would like to send you a new review about the Baur au lac in Zurich! We had yesterday the 24th of October 2020 lunch with friends in the Brasserie of the hotel mentioned above. They have renovated the restaurant and it did turn out very, very beautiful. The food and service was absolutely excellent. The only thing they still have to work on is there BABA ou RUM it is not very good, the pastry 🥮 was far to try. We thought the cook did keep the Rum for himself. With my very best regards Mrs. C. Steiger - Maldaque

It's such a beautiful hotel, my personal favourite in Zurich! The rooms are spacious, elegant and just fabulous. Breakfast in that lovely pavillon is always a highlight, even if currently no buffet can be offered, the variety is large and the service is fast - really enjoyable. The staff members were super charming, from the friendly receptionist upon arrival to the lovely lady taking care of my order at breakfast, it's an amazing service. Unfortunately nobody has a name tag but they are all great ambassadors of true luxury service.

Swiss hotel standards have diminished over the years as standards of service have become worse and worse. But at Baur au Lac it is family run, and it shows. The cuisine at the Terrasse is modern and fitting to the most spectacular garden that faces the lake. The garden has two most magnificent trees, one Japanese Ginko planted over a hundred years ago, and the other is just as impressive. Facing the lake the garden has an art in the park sculpture is awesome. The suite I stayed had the charm and modern luxury with a fantastic shower and bathroom area. The bed is impeccable and the overall impression is grand elegance and luxury in the centre if the city.
