“Sweet and Hip”
Reviewed December 20, 2009

Many hotels in Zurich are eye-wateringly expensive and I began to despair of finding a hotel that was acceptably priced that met my (quite high) standards. As a frequent business traveller and fussy holiday-maker, I searched in vain for many hours to find something that would suit a short trip to the City. This was a recommendation of the Guerlich, a design hotel, that was fully booked. The Helvetia is more of a bar and restaurant with rooms than a hotel. The bar and restaurants were buzzy and the food was really good. Don't expect the services or facilities of a business hotel, although the staff are friendly and helpful and there is wi-fi. The Helvetia bedrooms are fashionably modern yet comfy with well equipped bathrooms - the rooms NOT facing the river are bigger and I would recommend these. Best to go for the number 2 or 3 rooms on each floor. Well located, just ten minutes walk to the Banhofstrasse. I liked it - it has a really nice atmosphere and would go back.
