Historical Traveller Reviews of Hotel Schweizerhof Zürich
Wonderful Hotel, fabulous stafffrom Wootie
The room was wonderful--a bit small--but overall great. The service was outstanding. Twice daily housekeepingkept everything in our room refreshed. A wonderful elderly gentleman came in the evening with chocolates, fresh towels, newspapers and other amenities. And a great big smile. It was heaven.
The breakfast was free and incredibly good. Fresh breads, cheeses, meats, salmpn, eggs, bacon, sausages. It was all hot and fresh. And refreshed constantly.
The location is terrific--across from the rail station. We never heard a peep of noise thanks to the triple glazed windows. The tram stopped just outside our hotel and we used it extensively.
You cannot go wrong with this hotel. We absolutely loved everything about it.
Great choice in Zurich!from Mme_X
Room 412 faced the Bahnhof and a busy street, but we never had a problem with noise -- just a lovely view and a very convenient location to this train station, the shopping districts, easy walk to Old Town, the financial district, etc.
The room and bathroom were spacious, classy and comfortable, with exellent housekeeping. The room was nicely furnished with tasteful, traditional furnishings; large roomy desk; sofa; welcome plate of fruit on the table; in-room safe, etc. Perhaps the only thing "missing" from this type of hotel is an ironing board, but that's typical of many European hotels, and there is a pants press. The comfy beds are motorized so that you can comfortably sit up in bed. We'd usually ask for the duvets to be changed to regular sheets and blankets as they are often too warm without really cranking up the AC. Not here -- they must switch to the perfect "summer" weight. There is a secure drawer in each room to recharge laptops, etc, and the wireless connections, etc. are good.
The bathroom is a spacious, luxurious delight, with a wide array of Bulgari Green Tea toiletries, lots of counter space, etc.
The breakfast buffet is excellent -- wide array of breads, pastries, meats, cheeses, fruits, juices, with good champage if you are in the mood. My husband, a longtime salmon/lox afficionado, claims that the smoked salmon here is possibly the best he'd ever had -- a reason in itself to return.
There is a charming lounge/bar ara for pastries, light lunch, drinks, tea. Even if you have a long wait at the Bahnhof, cross the street and come here for a nice experience.
The staff and concierge are excellent -- very helpful with restaurant reservations, directions, etc.
Personally, we always book in-city hotels with A/C. Zurich in June was cool enough that the temperature would have been fine, but we avoid street noise if we can keep the windows shut at night. Lack of AC eliminates our staying in many older hotels. The Schweizerhof's AC worked quietly and perfectly, easily adjustable.
Admittedly, we got a nice weekend promotion for a room that we may not have afforded during the week at the usual rack rates, but this wonderful experience will make me check this hotel first on any future trips. This place tries very hard to get everything right, and does.
A delightful haven....from LausanneFrederick

Does it get any better than this?from G-Opine
Excellent service - fantastic hotelfrom DSOhara
The bed was probably the most comfortable I've ever slept on in my life!
Breakfast (including more champagne) was lovely, the whole hotel was lovely and the staff were even more lovely - I have never come across more helpful and friendly staff in a hotel.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone, and I can't wait to go back.
The location is fabulous too - right across from the station, though it's not noisy at all as the windows are triple glazed.
Love Love Love this hotelfrom MTLGAL
And wow - a heated towel rack in the bathroom!
I went shopping - the famous banhofstrasse is right outside the door and upon my return a lovely fresh fruit basket was in my room. Nice touch!
The next morning a champagne breakfast buffet was included - delicious! Breads, cheeses, hot food, fish, etc etc, Just great!
Finally it was time to check out and I received a little parting gift of chocolate.
Like I said I can't think of anything negative - it was a great hotel and even the price was right - 200 CHF. Quite reasonable considering all the positives.
If you like a charming hotel with outstanding location and service, stay here!
Top Local Tips for Zurich
Use the train The train station is right in the middle of the town. It's convenient and easy to get to and from the airport. And, it was convenient to go to and from Geneva for a few days. The train station is easy to navigate. The airport can be a bit tricker--make sure you know what check-in area handles your airline or you'll wander all over. The Zurich airport is huge and has a shopping mall and food court inside.
Where to stay Tray an investigate hotels in towns just outside of Zurich. many of the towns just outside of Zurich have excellent accommodation's for 1/2 to 1/3 the price and excellent train service into the main Zurich Station
Easiest way to and from the airport... Take the local train that runs between the airport and the main train station (known as the HB). It's inexpensive, quick (only about 10 minutes) and takes you direct from the airport to the central part of Zurich. Only qualification is if you're traveling with a number of bags, then you'll probably be more comfortable taking a taxi.
