We recently stayed at the Baur au Lac in Zurich [3 rooms, 6 guests] for 5 days, as part of a longer holiday. After flying in from the United States we arrived in the early morning and even in our tired, disheveled appearance, every single employee greeted us with a warm hello and a smile. What’s more they worked to get us into our suites almost immediately so we could get some rest and begin enjoying our fantastic stay in Zurich and all of Switzerland.
The hotel itself is wonderful, it is old school, European luxury. From stained glass, heated bathroom floors, fresh flowers, stocked [complimentary] bar, and afternoon treats in the room.
But what is even more important to us, are the content and gracious employees. Every single one, from Bell Captain to Valet, Room Service staff, restaurant employees or House Keeping seemed to take pride in working at the Baur au Lac. Upbeat and happy all.
We loved our entire stay in Switzerland. Five Days wasn’t enough. The cities are great, the country-side and scenery is some of the most beautiful in the world. The food is amazing. The open- air markets can’t be replicated [at least here where I live]. St Moritz was incredible. If you go, give yourself a lot of time.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Baur au Lac has the discerning tastes of its guests to thank for the leading position it has maintained for more than 170 years in the international luxury hotel industry. Set in its own park, the hotel enjoys a unique location overlooking the lake and the Alps - and yet is still but a few minutes' walk from the Paradeplatz financial district and the Bahnhofstrasse, Zurich's celebrated shopping high street. While offering the ultimate in comfort and privacy, the rooms and suites have been equipped with every, yet hardly noticeable technical refinement. The large marble bathrooms with heated floor and daylight match up to the highest demands of comfort, design and equipment. ... more less
