Hotel Glaernischhof
Ranked #12 of 138 Hotels in Zurich
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 11, 2012

The Hotel is nice, clean and the stuff is very friendly. If I am on a business trip, I would stay there again. One positiv aspect - one of the reason I took it - free Wifi. Even if it should, thats not state of the art in many hotels!
The disadvantages:
The breakfast offered is ok if you are hungry, but I have seen better buffets - very small, no big choice - but its included / for free.
As stated on the info page the fitness center is "outside" - a real gym. +: a REAL gym, you have everything. -: if you want to just jump into the sauna after a long day, the gym closes at 22:00 :-/
Distance to center: you can reach everything per feet in Zurich, Bürkliplatz and Zuricher See are very near from the Hotel. But for the "center" Niederdorf there are enough other Hotels.

Room Tip: I was in the first floor. Ok with closed windows, if you prefer sleeping with open windows, ask for...

Good, quiet, kind personal and great breakfast buffet!
A little bit expensive for the quality of the room, even if they are spacious.

The back rooms can be noisy due to construction in the area. The hotel is clean, well run, offers free wireless, and a decent breakfast. It's close to Banhofstrasse and major shopping and bank offices. Highly recommend for short trouble free stay.

the staff was helpful, although it seemed one of the girls was making things up as she went along. You may want to cross reference before making day plans. THe hotel was nice but a bit pricey. We dealt with construction on our Monday morning that we were not warned about ahead of time. It put a large damper on an international conference call my husband was having to place for business. The staff was less than apologetic but did leave chocolate in our room with the turn down service. The gym they give you access to is super nice.

This hotel's location, 3 minutes from the Tonhalle and 5 from the lake and the Bahnhofstrasse is ideal. Our room was in the 'relax' category with ample space and modern well planned facilities. Like the hotel it was quiet despite the drag race going on outside. Breakfast, included in the room rate was superb, a wideranging buffet with cooked items available on request. The two restaurants are mentioned in Michelin, one of them staying open until midnight every day. The lounge is large and comfortable. Cleanliness was at all times perfect. The staff are multilingual, competent and friendly.

Room Tip: Just specify what you want - they confirm your requirements on the booking confirmation. 'Quiet...

Outstanding location, service and amenities in the heart of Zurich. Rooms comfortable and super clean. Value for money (strong CHF vs EUR, USD would be applicable everywhere) :(
Restaurant in hotel has sumptuous buffet breakfast included in room rate. Also offered are Swiss Spezialitäten for lunch and dinner.

The hotel is ok only if you must spend one or two nights in Zurich for business because of the good location near the main business streets. For the rest: a bit noisy, very basic rooms with uncomfortable beds and average bathroom, poor breakfast and average front desk service. Not really a 4 stars hotel, maybe 3 stars. I am sure that there are better hotels in Zurich at the same price.
