The hotel offers great service with friendly people in a perfect location. some rooms are bigger than others, but the beds were comfortable. the breakfast is terrific. being right across from the train station makes travel so easy. I highly recommend this hotel.

Both the hotel and restaurant were absolutely perfect in every way. So much attention to detail that I hardly want to reveal all the surprise extra touches that make this Hotel truly a delight. Drinks upon arrival, an afternoon fruit bowl and chocolates delivery, a sublimely delicious meal in the 'Restaurant La Soupiere' with the knowledgeable and friendly host 'Helmli', to more after dinner complimentary treats (twice!). A hop and a skip from the main train station and easy access on foot to all the main Zurich sights makes for the perfect location too. Whoever ignorantly said the Swiss were not friendly and helpful have clearly never stayed here.
I travel frequently for work and pleasure and this is one of the most lovely Hotels I have ever experienced. Book without delay!

Great place to stay if you are doing business in downtown Zurich. The welcome is excellent, the rooms are well appointed and clean. Internet is free and works well. The breakfast is very good and served in a personable and period dining room which would also work for a working breakfast. The hotel is right next to Zurich's most fashionable shopping street if that is what you are after. Highly recommend and good value for money.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back or the trams may keep you awake. Also there are a lot of smoking rooms so...

We travelled by train from Manchester to Budapest via Zurich and Vienna. The two highlights of this trip were the train ride from Zurich to Vienna and The Schweizerhof Hotel. We were met on the platform by one of the hotel's very smart staff who carried our suitcases over to the hotel. On check in we were given hot towels and a choice of drink (other hotels take note!). They also advised us of an upgrade to a corner room as it was our anniversary together with a bottle of Champagne delivered to the room by the butler.A big thank you to all the staff at the Schweizerhof, Your standards of service, courtesy and care are a benchmark for other hotels.

Excellent hotel close to the Central Station in Zurich. The service is really immaculate. They even have a butler-service at night, one member of staff - in my case a distiguished gentleman in his 60s- knocked on the door to see if I would like to have a magazin or newspaper or chocolate or something else before bedtime. The breakfast is also excellent. Well spent money!

Evety year we visit Zurich on our way to the slopes and every year we stay here. And it never disappoints! Old fashioned comfort and service! Clean, comfy and professional! From the evening treats trolley, to chocolates and water at reception to the classic breakfast... Your feel like you have stepped back into a grand old hotel of the golden era of travel but with modern conveniences! The beds are comfortable, the bathrooms excellent and toiletries plentiful! Room service is excellent and the jams at breakfast are home made! A classic hotel and convenient for the train station across the street with all rooms soundproofed! Thanks for setting the standard... Old school is still the best!

Room Tip: Inside courtyard upper floor is very quiet!
