Hotel Zum Goldenen Kopf
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Buelach
Reviewed 25 August 2013

A lovely little hotel, in the heart of the old part of Bulach, one of the walls being the old city wall..
Not far from Zurich's airport, easy to reach and find. Good parking facilities. Nice, well-equipped rooms (though, on a Saturday night, the pub across the road can be quite noisy..). Lovely, friendly and efficient staff. Good breakfast and, in the restaurant on the ground floor, excellently prepared dishes (some with obvious austrian influence) and outstanding wines (some from the region and others from further afield, e.g. Italy). Perfect for a week-end get-away, also to visit some of the very picturesque little towns and villages in the neighbourhood (Eglisau, Rudlingen et alia). A very nice part of Switzerland!

Room Tip: Best not to be facing the pub across the road on a Saturday night..!

Got here about 10pm and had to leave early the next morning. Very nice spot, would loved to have explored the charming hotel and and town. Resteraunt open til 11 ( but with a reduced menu), but a cold beer and a bite to eat were just fine. Room very large and comfy, great nights sleep. Staff very friendly and helpful. Cab ride to Zurich airport was 40 euros, so a bit far for this to be a great airport hotel, but a super place for a night away.

I spent one night at this hotel before flying out of Zurich airport. The location and indeed the village or Buelach are beautiful, and there is some nice shopping (boutiques and groceries) in the immediate vicinity.
I booked a double room for single occupancy which was lucky because I needed the second bed for my luggage. The room (Nr 3-5) was too small really for a double, and I have no idea how two people (possibly even with luggage!!) would live in there. It all reminded me of hotel rooms in Japan...
At night and in the early morning it was quite noisy, but I guess with the central location of the hotel, this is unavoidable.
The staff are friendly and helpful, the room and bathroom were immaculate and the restaurant deserves at least one Michelin Star!
The taxi to the airport took no more than about 20 minutes (45 francs), so very convenient in that respect too.
Rates are very reasonable compared to the rest of Zurich. Will definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: check the size!

Stayed for 3 nights. Room was functional, a bit small but clean and well-equipped. Only negative is the fact that they believe that it is necessary to place all sorts of brochures, informations etc. on all the available space on the desk, the night stand and the table. Breakfast was quite varied. Ample parking space and also very good connection with public transport to downtown Zurich (by train) and Zurich Airport (by bus). Friendly staff at the reception desk.

Room Tip: Preferably towards the rear of the building. Others give out to the main passage way which could be...

If you don't want to spend a few hundred dollars for a hotel inside Zurich or even at the airport, take the 15-minute bus ride from the airport terminal to Bulach and enjoy a typical Swiss town that offers a great Riesling wine and good restaurants along with this easy little hotel on a lovely street. Though the guestrooms are nothing special, this hotel offers all the basics a traveler needs at great rates by Swiss standards. The room furnishings are a bit worn, but beds are comfortable and bathrooms clean. Staff are very friendly and accommodating. The breakfast buffet offers lots of delicious options. And the building itself is centrally located in a walkable, pretty, 1,200-year-old town that is near a river and scenic farmland -- and the big Zurich international airport beyond that. Zurich itself is a short train ride away, so you could make Bulach your base if wanting to explore the big city without the big hotel prices.
