Sorell Hotel Zurichberg
Ranked #50 of 138 Hotels in Zurich
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 21, 2011

If you like the feel of open spaces, green fields and fresh air of the country side and still want to be in the city. If you can't decide which desire to fulfill - relaxing in the countryside or shop till you drop. If you want to have peace and tranquility and also a night life. This is it.

Hotel Zurichberg is a boutique hotel, about fifteen minutes from Bahnhofstrasse. Locationally, it is near the Zurich Zoo and Hotel Doldergrand and a direct Tram #6 (with no changeovers) will take you straight to the heart of the city.

The place is luxurious and very uniquely designed (see pictures attached). The breakfast spread is lavish and delicious. But the best part is the location. The lawns where breakfast is served overlook Zurich city and you feel like you are far away from the hustle and bustle of a megacity. The place is a bit pricey but it is every bit worth it.

There is a lovely Swiss restaurant nearby, which again is highly recommended as much for the food as for the setting. If you stay at Zurichberg, you must have at least one lunch at this place. Don't remember the name of the restaurant but I am sure he concierge will be able to help out.

Enjoy the best of both worlds - countryside in the heart of a megacity! Hotel Zurichberg!

They appear to treat normal guests as an irritation to their business seminar and brunch events. Guests were moved to the bar for one breakfast but they assumed everyone would know this without telling us. Breakfast choice felt a bit mean. Beware as this is a dog friendly hotel and personally I object to eating while guests walked their dogs through the restaurant ! Couldn't find a way of stopping the morning light coming through the en suite glazed door for a lie in either. No spare pillows and rotting fruit not removed from the fruit bowl. Simple things really. 3.5 stars for me, a long way from the 5 the location and building deserve. I will be staying further down the hill next time.

I think for most people this hotel would fall somewhere between 4 and 5 depending on if they like the location.

The hotel is a restored older building with gleaming wood floors and high ceilings but decorated with modern, functional furniture. It is extremely clean and has nice touches like Bulgari soaps in the bathroom. The location is in the suburbs above zurich surrounded by miles of nature trails. The outdoor deck and patio have gorgeous views of lake zurich below. The lounge is nice and the restaurant is pretty decent too. It's about a 15 - 20 minute drive to the town so if you want to be able to walk to dinner, etc. this is probably not the place for you.

I stayed at this hotel for a small vacation and leisure. The hotel is located about 10 minutes from downtown. From the hill you can enjoy a splendid view over Lake Zurich.
The property consists of an older building (where is the restaurant) and other modern construction.
The rooms are furnished in modern style and are comfortable.
The breakfast is excellent and varied. The friendly staff is always available.
The hotel also has a large garden terrace and at the evening is ideal for a drink overlooking the city.
Underground parking.

Optimal solution for a short weekend!

We had an amazing time here. The service staff are great and the hotel didn't have a fault we could find. The location slightly outside of the city suit us perfectly. Absolutely recommend this place for a weekend away with your loved one.

The Sorell Hotel Zurichberg is at the outskirts of Zurich on Zurichberg. You have a wonderful view over the lake and Zurich. Getting to Bahnhofstrasse (downtown) takes about 30 minutes with the tram.
We stayed in the circular building which has an amazing design. The rooms are beautiful and the spiral walkway is just so cool.
The breakfast was really good. Everything you need is there.
I really recommend this hotel, if you want to stay in Zurich and want to have a nice hotel with a beautiful view.

I absolutely loved this hotel. It's simply beautiful - everything is designed to be simple, functional, and gorgeous. I had a corner room and it was quite large. The wood floors are stunning, open your windows to hear the birds singing, the evening turn-down service with chocolates is wonderful. I loved sleeping with the windows partly open, huge comfortable bed and the sounds of nature outside. I've reviewed a lot of hotels and this is probably my favorite! My rate included the breakfast buffet, and it was delicious and bountiful. I love the location - at the end of the tram line, right next to the woods. However, if you are staying to tour Zurich, this probably is not the best location since it is about a 20 minute tram ride into the city (and if it's raining, you've got to walk to the tram station down a hill about 5 minutes). The internet price is also completely ridiculous - worse than most. Other than that, I really loved this hotel and would love to go back in the future.
