The hotel was in a good downtown location,but it was a $75 taxi ride to the airport. The staff was nice and farily helpful unless you needed help in English. We found Zurich, in general, the least helpful for English travelers during our trip of 16 days in 5 countries. The hotel was very expensive for what you got. Not a vey good value, but it appears that hotels in Zurich are expensive.

Room Tip: Don't wory about a view. It looks like you will get buildings out of all the windows.

Not cozy, but sleek, efficient, professional, with a most helpful staff. The hotel is well located for walking in Zurich. Highly recommend. The room (a Relax room) was spacious, clean, and very quiet. I would definitely stay here again. Nice little bar and lovely breakfast buffet included. The staff were universally helpful, no matter what silly question we had. The bed was very comfortable. The hotel staff obviously take pride in their jobs.

Great hotel ideally located in the central part of Zurich. Close to local trams, the main station is a 15 minute walk away, the Lake is a 5 minute stroll.

The public areas are a little tired but the room was excellent with a great range of TV channels, coffee maker, complimentary fruit and water, large cumfy bed and plenty of space.

Frequented the small bar and was delighted to be presented with a complimentary trip.

I have stayed in a number of Zurich hotels and this is absolutely one of the best.

The Glärnischhof is located right in the center of the city. There ist practically no other position which is more down town than that.
The hotel has been refurbished in 1995/96 and has not really had any additional refurbishments since then, except for the hotelbar.
The rooms are still okay, but you can feel, that a renovation will be needed very soon. The bed was too soft, it was almost impossible to sleep. What disturbed me the most was the illumination in the room and all the switches you had to look for in order to turn all the light off. On the other hand there is no central switch when you leave the room.
Breakfast was poor for a 4-Star Hotel at a high rate like the Glärnischhof.
The restaurants are very small and not really cosy.

It is time for a change at the glärnischhof.

Room Tip: Get a room in the inner court, it is nice and quite.

Stayed for one night in July and the hotel was great. The staff was friendly and helpful. Got a second room for my parents who were traveling with us and they loved it. Would stay there again in a second. Walking distance to fantastic parts of Zurich.

A great little hotel in a quite part of Zurich near my client's offices. I had a 'Relax' room. They offer basic (for one person), a 'comfort' room with no desk or table, a 'relax' room with desk and couch and a few more expensive room types. I would have to say it was the most peaceful and quite room I have ever stayed in, and I stay in too many hotels. The ceilings are very high. There was an elegance to the room - understated, elegant and really conducive to sleeping. The lighting was really tasteful. The staff is incredibly helpful, the breakfast in the morning is fine (Swiss - you are not going to get an American breakfast) and included in the price. Really classy, but in no way pretentious. Just really tasteful. I love the automatic metal shades (just push a button) that come down outside of the windows that completely block out any light and all sound. It has more of the feel of a B&B with the personal attention, a small quite lobby and good restaurant. Wonderful place. Expensive like everything in Zurich. One more thing - you never hear the heater or A/C. Unlike so many hotels where it comes on and off and you can never get it right. I set it once and it just kept the room at a perfect temperature and never did I hear it operating.

Room Tip: The 'Relax' rooms are roomy with a desk, which is important if you are traveling on business...
