I have spent couple of weeks in Glockenhof hotel Zurich at the end of May 2013. Hotel staff was polite and very efficient. The room is good and the bed is very comfort. Hotel location is excellent. I warmly recomend.

This is my third stay at the Glockenhof. We moved here after one unsatisfactory night at Seidenhof just down the street. Rooms are new, spotless, the beds are comfy and the location is unbeatable. Like every other hotel in this category in ZH it is pricey compared to similarly rated places in other cities - for ZH I would go so far as to say it is Preiswert.
Two small complaints: wifi Internet access is provided by Swisscom and is (thankfully) now free of charge. However it is hopelessly cumbersome to log-in to and the rate of dropped connections and overall speed make it frustrating.
Second, we requested non-feather pillows. Additional pillows were delivered while we were out during the day, but they too were feather. We didn't discover this until our return later in the evening. We called reception and the lone night porter was weary about leaving the front desk to look for our pillows. Eventually he did look, but couldn't find any...

Dear guest
I would like to thank you for you lovely review and your loyalty. I am sorry that your request for a pillow without feathers was not solved to your satisfaction. Usually we do not have feather pillows in the rooms anymore. But you can be assured that the housekeeping and night staff will be further instructed.The free wifi is just meant to check the e-mails and for simple surfing. For services like Skype etc. we recommend our premium wifi which comes with a charge or the connection with a cable.
We hope to have an opportunity of hosting you again soon.

A very nice hotel, perfect for business: well priced for Zurich, good facilities, fine service. The baskets of apples on every floor were a nice and welcome touch. The bathroom was very nice, if slightly dark. The bedroom was more spacious than I would have expected. The only downside for me (other than price - which, frankly, is a problem everywhere in Zurich) was that the ironing board they provided was rather flimsy, and not up to the standard I've seen at comparable hotels elsewhere.

I have the pleasure to travel to Zurich twice a year for business purposes and have stayed at the Glockenhof 3 times over the last 2 years. All I can say is that this hotel is perfect for all the good reasons.

First the location is very central, you can have access to the hotel either directly by using the train link from the airport to the main station, tram or by taxi obviously. The hotel is also very conveniently placed when exploring Zurich, it is few minutes away from the shopping part of Zurich, Old Zurich and the lake. What more would you want?

The staff at the reception is always spot on, charming, professional and very polite. They will make sure that you stay is as goo as possible and they are very efficient. We always get welcome with a free drink and discount for the hotel restaurant which is a nice bonus also.

The facilities are very good, breakfast room spacious and quiet, the food plentiful and the quality of the breakfast of very high quality. For evening drinks the bar or the interior space is the perfect environment to chill out and relax after a long day of work.

The rooms are spacious, very well laid out and the bed is super comfortable. I always struggle to sleep when I spend my first night in a hotel but at the Gloeckenhof for some reason I always manage to find myself sleeping without too much problem. In the room, you will find all you need, and you can enjoy free wifi or wired internet for free which is a nice bonus.

Maybe one small negative... I stayed in room 404 giving straight onto the HITL restaurant and it happened that I could hear loud music for quite a long until very late in the evening. Hopefully I had a set of earplugs, but could be a problem if you have a light sleep. Not sure if this music a recurrent thing, but if it is maybe try to ask for another room?

Anyway, overall a fantastic hotel and I am looking forward my next stay!

Dear guest, wow, what a moral boosting review. You have covered all aspects of your stay and I am particularly appreciative about your comments about our staff. It is always hugely motivating when one takes the time and trouble to acknowledge the service they have recieved. Concerning the noice from the Club opposite I recommend to reserve a room to the courtyard the next time you stay with us. Simply mention it with your reservation.

We are looking Forward to welcoming you back in the not too distance future.

if you are in town for business, pleasure or else, this hotel supplies all the needs. Location is great (city center) comfortable facilities including a deal with nearby Holmes Place (20 sec walk), fair price, good service. What else do you need?

Very pleased with the stay at the Best Western Premier Hotel Glockenhof.
Location is perfect, we had no car and everything is closed by: restaurants, bars,...
Service also was adequate. The receptionist were very kind and helpful.
