This is my second review for the savoy. I wanted to review it again since my thoughts have changed in my last stays. Again this a very traditional Swiss hotel. It is located in the heart of Zurich on the paradeplatz. So it can't be more central. This hotel is an example of Swiss perfection. Everything is so clean and almost sterile. The rooms are very nice maybe not very stylish. The service is great but especially the front desk can be very reserved. Especially the lady who is the cashier. So you might be a little intimidated by her. Also there is no real lobby, no gym, no pool etc.

Room Tip: Ask not to be put in the back that faces windows. Prefer street facing rooms.

SAVOY HOTEL BAUR EN VILLE ZÜRICH is a unique experience. We have a room overlooking Paradeplatz -- the biggest money-handling center in Switzerland. From our balcony, we see Credit Suisse Head Office building on the right and UBS in front of us. Amazing to read about the hotel history dating back to 1838 and equally fascinating to watch night illumination of two big bank buildings being so close to us.

Inside the hotel, eighteenth-century wall clock, original flags of Zurich guilds are history-tellers.

Room is finely decorated, furnished and classy. Make me feel obliged to keep every fine element in good shape even as a hotel guest.

We had dinner in the Italian Restaurant Orsini and Restaurant Baur - good food ingredients and very fine cooking.

Hotel staff team is experienced and efficient. The souls behind are the legendary Manfred and Christina Hörger who run this unique luxurious hotel in very high standard for almost 30 years.

Room Tip: Choose a Junior Suite

The room of the Savoy was cosy and clean, but it is very small (also the bathroom), no plug for computer and phone (you need to unplugged some lights to plug your stuff... we are in 2012!) The staff, the ones who answered the phone, were very unfriendly when we asked for a late check-out (at 15:00), they told us in a very rude way that the rule is noon and nothing they can do about it as it is like that all over the world (we travel half of the year in luxurious hotels and this is not true), anyway this was not a way to speak to the clients!! we will never come back.

5 star all the way. This was not my first stay at the Savoy Baur en Ville in Zurich, but it has been quite a few years. I can safely say that the service is still first class. I mainly love their bar for meeting business associates or just a pre-dinner drink. The location is perfect.
Only regret is that the breakfast is not a buffet. Instead it is served at your table.

Room Tip: Single standard are a bit small. If you are willing to pay a bit more chose a double.

Beautiful elegant, relatively small hotel. The hotel is situated at the Paradeplatz in the Bahnhofstrasse with lots of elegant boutiques close by. Also the lake is at very close walking distance. The rooms have everything you need. The only disadvantage is that they are so very small, especially the one person rooms. And they are pretty expensive.
The bar is very nice to go to. Always busy. Good staff as well and the piano player adds to the good vibe of this place.
Breakfast is very good, no buffet. Sometimes if all the guests decide to have breakfast at the same time, you may have to wait a little since there are not so many tables. All in all though, good atmosphere, excellent beds, good food and the staff is extremely nice and helpful.

Room Tip: Be aware if you have a room facing the Paradeplatz; when opening the window it is very noisy because...
