“Excellent Hotel for Buisness”
Reviewed December 12, 2010

I frequently stay at high end brand name hotels, so I was expecting something signficantly less enticing from the Schwieterhoff. All I can say is, the service is excellent, the bar is great, the location is fantastic, the rooms are spotless, and the girls at the front desk (Carmen and Florina) are incredibly pleasant and helpful. The rooms were tiny, and when I say tiny I mean tiny, but since I was staying in my own room and wans't in there much, it was IDEAL for business. Absolutely great value, and I would recommend this hotel for practical business tri[ps every time.

This hotel cannot be rated highly enough. 5* truly in my books.Apart from its terrific location across the road from the main station (where there is a wonderful Christmas market), it is the epitome of understated luxury and elegance. Glass of bubbly and hot towel given on arrival; fruit bowl in the room---exceptionally friendly and helpful staff;special mention of the concierge---so helpful and sympathetic to me when I had to arrange a 2nd night's stay due to flight cancellation occasioned by bad weather in Dublin--reorgaised my airline booking, and eased the stress occasioned by this type of situation(iwas even upgraded on my second night).

Rooms are incredibly well appointed, free wifi, luxury robes and toiletries , luxury toiletries/accessories, trouser press, mini bar, wide screen plasma TV and exceptionally comfortable electronically adjustable beds.Breakfast , included in the rate , is as good as it gets, in its elegant French restaurant on the first flloor- freshly squeezed juices, everything imaginable , hot or cold , and again, wonderful friendly staff, who really do enjoy their jobs.

Nice touches all round- a warm farewell greeting and a thoughtful , nicely wrapped little Christmas pastry given on departure.

I cannot recommend this hottel highly enough.

We only stayed here for one night but were really impressed with staff, they were incredibly helpful and friendly. This is a great place to stay if you have a layover as it is very close to the train station and thus the airport (10min ride). I think we were off the plane and at the hotel in under an hour. Sure the rooms are on the smaller side, but they are very comfortable, actually very similiar in size to what you might expect from a similiar class of NYC hotel.

Stayed at the Schweizerhof for 5 days and it was truly excellent. The bellman took several minutes to show me everything about the room, the maid stopped by every evening to ask if I needed anything, and then there was the butler who comes by with a trolley filled with newspapers and multiple types of chocolate! The single room was small but well-appointed, including a shower that actually drained properly, a bed with an electric lift (like a hospital bed), free Internet that got great reception, tea and coffee service, fresh fruit, and TV with a large selection of channels in several languages. My room overlooked the courtyard as I had requested a quiet room, and I never heard a thing. The courtyard isn't very pretty, though; it contains the rubbish bins and some other odds and ends. The breakfast is pretty good: scrambled eggs, sausage and bacon; cold choices such as a variety of sliced meats and cheeses, yogurt and fruit; a daily special selection like cantaloupe with proschiutto; and they bring you a pot of coffee or tea and even heat up the milk! A wide range of newspapers are available in several languages. I did't eat in the restaurant but they gave me a 20% discount coupon at check-in. There's an Asian restaurant next door with inexpensive good food. And as others have said, the location is unparalleled. I would most definitely stay again!

I enjoyed many aspects of my stay at the hotel. There was always a member of the staff a moment away with one phone call. The restaurant and free breakfast were quite good. The rooms were reasonably sized for Zurich. I found the hotel to be quite affordable in comparison to other offerings in the area. My only complaint would be the lack of a gym area on-site as I workout daily. I would highly recommend this hotel.

This hotel is fab in so many ways, the location is superb right in front of the main train station with its little shops, and superb macaroon place and main shopping street right around the corner (yet, if you request a quiet room you truly get one - I slept with the window open and it was quiet as anything). Welcome drink and nibblies on arrival, service with a smile, terrific breakfast room and service, complimentary fresh seasonal fruit in room and in the corridors, lovely room decoration, in that classic understated style, fresh flowers in the room, proper turndown service, etc. The only gripe I have is with the Wi-fi, which though included in the price of the room, was not working, nor did the cable, very frustrating when one is staying for business and cannot get urgent work out. It was down most of the night and into the morning, though they have deducted the costs of the cable connection off my bill. Provided internet is working, I would definitely stay here again. Very good value for money for what it is.

This hotel is very well-located, and was very convenient for me, with excellent access to the train station (and, by extension, the airport). I could check in early; the hotel offered fresh fruit and chocolate in the room, which was itself small side, but had a very comfortable bed as well as good bedroom, and everything I needed - and a bit more. The decor is nice, and the breakfast excellent.

The only small flaws that I would see in this hotel is that there was a (brief) waiting time for breakfast, while I was in a hurry, and that service at the reception desk is not always equally professional. While the service at check-in was quite OK, when I wanted to check out, three staff were apparently busy with something else at the same time. I think that, in a professional environment, the guest should always be the main priority at the front desk. Nevertheless, I might return.
