5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2011

5 star service and room. Absolutely fantastic room in a very central area of Zurich. Close to shops and short walk to main tourist areas. Not too far from the train station which is great when carry suitcases. Room was first class with all the modern trimmings. Hotel restaurant was fantastic with great service and food. Recommend it!!!!!!!!

Room Tip: Room was fantastic!

I visited this hotel in June, the second time this year and now that the renovations are finished it is a lot better.
The staff at the hotel are extremely friendly and helpful.
The breakfast is excellent. The location cant be beaten in terms of access to central Zurich.
My only complaint would be the price and the size of the rooms.
But this is Switzerland and everything is outrageously expensive.
This is good quality, comfortable but no frills accomodation.

I was skeptical that a european hotel would give us a room with the space (there were 3 of us to the room) and amenities of an American hotel, but the Hotel Glockenhof did. Don't be fooled by the name Best Western. This is a high quality hotel with high quality services in the heart of Zurich. The room was large, cool (great A/C), quiet, and comfortable. The staff always ready to serve and do it with a smile. The location was about 15 minutes from the train station and 10 - 15 minutes walking from everything we wanted to do in Zurich. Breakfast was included in our stay and it was very good.

Room Tip: Ask for room 504. Lots of space, reasonable view, and very comfortable.

Lovely hotel in the centre of Zürich. Location is great for shopping and sightseeing.

Quite big rooms with many amenities, including a Nespresso coffee machine, and international sockets which proved very handy. Bathrooms have shower AND bathtub, and you can even listen to the TV or radio inside!

All front desk staff (receptionists and porters) should be praised for their good job as they went well the extra mile during our stay, making the last night of our Austrian/Swiss trip the most enjoyable one. Special mention should be done for the receptionist on duty in the evening shifts on 10th and 11th August for his help with all our doubts and requests.

I understand extra customer service is a "must" nowadays so as to improve guest experience and satisfaction, and for sure both things were more than fulfilled. This impressions were shared by the four of us in the party. Our compliments to everyone involved in the Front Office Department.

Just returned from a flying visit to Zurich to visit friends. The hotel was booked (& paid for!) on our behalf!! What a treat!! Very professional & friendly staff. Lovely room (although I couldn't quite fathom out the air con...probably my fault!) - very fresh & modern, but not corporate in feel. Ideal for business travellers particularly with work desk & multiple electric sockets for different countries!! Nice touch! No free wifi yet but managed to get a decent 3G signal so it wasn't a big issue.....I expect business travellers would find this very annoying though. The bathroom was great but NO privacy given the huge glass window between the bedroom & bathroom!! Great for solo travellers or a couple but not good for my 11year daughter & I! Breakfast was lovely & relaxed. Nice selection of pastries, cold meats, cheeses, cereals, breads, juices etc

Room Tip: If you want privacy ask for a room with a discreet bathroom!
