Nice welcome through young receptionist - offering welcome drink while check in. The price of the hotel is good in comparison to other 4 star hotels in this lovely location. We took a tram from the train station to get there. The number of the tram was 4 and it brings you just to the door of the hotel. Rooms are spacious and the breakfast offers everything what a business traveler needs.

If you are planning a trip to Zurich and researching hotels, you know by now how expensive they are! This hotel is very affordable and a great value for the money. We've experienced much more expensive stays that weren't half as wonderful as this one.

Hotel Helmhaus made our first trip to Zurich perfect. We were greeted by the amazing and accommodating staff with hot cider and the offer to take our luggage up to our room. The room, while small (as many have noted), was perfect. Cozy, very clean, amazingly comfy bed that we slept like babies in, and was also on the breakfast floor.

The breakfast buffet was included in our room cost (very hard to find in Zurich) and was perfect. Yogurt, fruit, pastries, scramble eggs, bacon and any kind of juice you can think of. Plenty of coffee, too.

Our room faced Limmatquai and the courtyard with Starbucks in it. It was a wonderful, sunny room during the day. The location of this hotel is just steps from the Old Town area, Grossmunster and many public transportation stops to take you wherever you want to go.

We highly recommend this hotel for a trip to Zurich!

Room Tip: Corner room on the breakfast floor (2) was perfection.

Thank you for your recent stay at our Hotel Helmhaus. We are delighted to know that you had a comfortable time and enjoyed your stay within the walls of our little historical building.
Especially when travelling to a city for the first time without really knowing what awaits you there raises expectations and excitments. I am glad to know that your expectations were not disappointed – on the contrary. Our rooms have been refurbished over the past five years, and for breakfast we only use Swiss products of the highest quality.
And a sunny day makes exploring the immediate surroundings of our hotel with the most major sights in walking distance all the more worth doing.

Thank you for recommending us, and we wish you all the best.

Your Helmhaus Management Team.

This is a lovely hotel. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful and make me feel right at home. I had chosen the hotel partly on the reviews of the good breakfast but even my high expectations were exceeded by the excellent spread. The room was an excellent size ... it overlooked the street but on a cold winter Sunday night it was perfectly quiet and with double glazed windows would probably be fine on any night. The location is perfect and is within walking distance of anywhere you would like to go. I

Thank you for having been our guest recently and for sharing with other travellers and us how comfortable you felt. You were absolutely right to have high expectations about our hotel, and it is an even bigger compliment for us to know that we even exceeded those and could make you feel „home away from home“.
The sound proof windows have been added five years ago to give our guests an even more comfortable sleep – especially in the summer with the individually adjustable air-conditions in each room.

We look forward to seeing you again in the future and wish you all the best.

The Helmhaus Hotel is a delightful small boutique style hotel. The service was excellent and friendly. When we arrived for our three-night stay, we were informed that our room had been upgraded. The room was spacious, with a sitting area and plenty of desk space. The hotel was quiet, even though it is located in the heart of Zurich. Windows are openable, but this is not required in warm weather, as the rooms are air conditioned. The location is ideal and we were able to walk to shopping, the lake, museums, restaurants and churches. The main Zurich rail station is a 15 minute walk. Doable for day trips, but you may not want to haul your luggage on foot. One plus for this hotel is they get a reduced member price from the CHECK-IN ALL WAYS airport shuttle service. This service is a good option, as you can be dropped-off and pick-up at the hotel door. This is more reasonable in cost vs. a taxi and more convenient than the trains. Finally, the breakfast buffet was a treat. It is not huge, but the quality is very high. This from a person who spent 100-125 nights on the road for 30 years and ate 400+ meals out per year, over the same time span.

Thank you and your partner for your recent stay with us and for sharing your postive thoughts with other travellers and us. We are delighted to read that you had a comfortable and relaxing stay with us. Each of our guests has his / her expectations when chosing our hotel, and these are even higher when one has spent half a life on the road and in hotels.
It is nice for us to know that you appreciated what our little historical yet modern Hotel Helmhaus has to offer, since it is our aim to deliver quality, not quantity.
With our location which you valued especially among other things our guests can easily reach the Chagall windows at the Fraumünster Church or the famous shopping mile „Bahnhofstrasse“.

We wish you both all the best and look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

Your Helmhaus Management Team.

This is one of the gems in Zurich - the proces are good and the decor is always clean and tidy. The rooms are comfortable and the bathrooms are a real highlight for the price you pay! I am never disappointed in this place as the standard is always high as is the service.

Room Tip: As high as possible for even better views!
