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.

Fantastic legendary hotel in the very heart of Zurich. The grounds are beautiful and the service is excellent. PROS: Perfect location, very attentive service, beautiful renovated Junior Suites with amazing decoration, very nice Terrace restaurant with a chic lounge vibe, beautiful garden CONS: Lobby looks a bit dated, no Spa/pool and no state-of-the-art gym (small fitness room), no expresso/tea machine in room

Very nice hotel with a great ambiance and amazing staff. Coming back here time to time is a bless! The service is perfection and they accommodate every request. Special thank you to Lenka, Stefanie, Max and the charming italian server at Baur's -whose name I am missing- to make and maintain this place very unique!

“The Baur au Lac, internationally renowned as one of the world's top luxury hotels, an establishment steeped in over 175 years of tradition, has been owned by the same family for six generations. Being one of the world's oldest luxury hotels still in the ownership of its founding family the Baur au Lac represents modernity and progressivity at the same time. Over the last decades, some 160 million Swiss francs have been invested in new facilities and renovations at the Baur au Lac.”

We stopped over for a short stay and we’re just amazed by the quality of services and the generous rooms. Also a stop at the Baurs restaurant did not disappoint. Recommend to everyone even on a short Weekend stay- real relief and beautiful environment during these challenging times.
