Spent one night here before our river cruise. Very clean, very quiet. In the heart of old town. Easy to walk around and see this part of the city. Close to the river. Great breakfast!! And best shower of our 3 week trip!!!!

Just enjoyed a great few days at this lovely hotel. Perfect location in the old town, very close to everything you could want. Beautiful breakfast and super helpful staff. The room is on the small side but well appointed and very comfortable. Would recommend!

We loved out stay at Helmhaus. A small, quiet boutique hotel perfect for couples. The location was wonderful...easy to walk to the train station, shopping and food and a tram pick up just outside the hotel if needed. The staff were all so friendly and helpful, really going out of their way to help with anything we needed. The rooms... More

Really enjoyed my stay here. It is very convenient to hop a tram or simply stroll through the historic streets. I stayed on business and it was quite pleasant, room was great. You are only a few blocks from Bahnhofstrasse where there is tons of high end shopping. I prefer the smaller shops which are right around the area myself.

Yes, the hotel is centrally located, spotless and quiet, with a great breakfast spread, but the real jewels are the staff. We have stayed in hotels in most major European cities and the Helmhaus staff are the best we've encountered. The leader of this wonderful group is Mario, or in our opinion, Super Mario! He does it all, knows everything... More

This is a very classy little hotel situated in a lovely part of Zurich.Very professional yet friendly service on arrival and a room that was just right for the two of us with an ipad system for guests to use as opposed to the traditional hotel folders or television information..Nice breakfast,really enjoyed our short stay.

Perfect service - perfect location - comfortable bed - and a lot of complementary extras! The breakfast buffet is one of the best I have ever seen (and included in the room charge). Would not stay anywhere else in Zurich!
