My wife and I had a weekend get-away in Zurich and stayed at the BW Hotel Zuercherhof. The hotel was easy to find, the check-in was quick and efficient, the young lady on the desk could not have been more friendly or helpful. The room was very clean and reasonably sized (for Europe) - the bed was very comfortable and...

First off: yes, it smells like cheese. Its only in the lobby and you can't smell it after about 30 seconds. You get used to it and it's REALLY not a big deal. The hotel is great, and here's why: The rooms are clean and spacious. I enjoyed the mini refrigerator because it allowed me to store some groceries. The...

Stayed here on our way to a ski resort. Great location just five minutes walk from the railway station and as close to the river with the old town sites nearby including easy access to Bahnhofstrasse and its array of designer and chocolate shops. Our room was clean and recently renovated. The service at reception was helpful and we enjoyed...

Nice location, room ok and clean but the omnipresent smell of cheese due to the ground floor restaurant is unbearable as much as I love cheese. This is way beyond acceptable and a real problem for the hotel as this odour is truly bothering and at any time of the day or night. They definitely should look for a solution...

Dear Fuangfah We wish you a happy NY! Thank you so much for your kind comments - yes you are right sometiems it does smell strong after cheese. However this is due to the season and not always - and as mentioned by you - it does not smell in the hotel rooms. Hope you enjoyed Zurich a lot! Best...

From it outside, it doesnt look like much but once you open your bedroom door, you will have a smile on your face. Lovely comfortable bed and spacious room.

Stayed here one night before heading to Lucerne with my wife and friends- the staff was super cordial and attentive - but I was a little concerned because the lobby looked very pedestrian. Got up to our room and was shocked in a very pleasant way. Virtually everything was new - including the bathroom fixtures. If quarters in the bathroom...

We arrived into Zurich on a sleeper train around 8am, and wanted to drop luggage off prior to check-in. Front desk staff were very accommodating with allowing us to leave it with them so we could tour around Zurich for the day. On check-in, the desk agent advised us of the free breakfast starting at 7am, to which I replied...

We stayed two nights in Zurich and this was an excellent choice. The hotel was clean and very comfortable. It was an easy walk to the train station, shopping, and restaurants. It was a wonderful jumping-off point for the rest of our vacation in Alsace.
