“Fantastic top notch service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2012 via mobile

First time in Switzerland. We brought my 72 year old mom and my 11 year old daughter with us. I absolutely loved this hotel! We were there 3 nights and it rained nearly the whole trip. The staff was friendly, helpful, inviting. Small boutique hotel so everytime you came in u were greeted with a hello and your name. Concierge Andre was the most genuine and great host. Hotel had great attention of detail including afternoon treats in lobby including champagne and appetizer. My daughter and husbands favorite was the nighttime cart service to the room where they could select chocolates, fresh fruit, yogurt, and drinks. They left us feeling special and pampered and that is how I wanted this trip to feel to my mom and daughter. Top notch hotel! Loved every minute even with the rain!

Traveling to Zurich for business i stayed in several hotels. so far this is the best hotel i stayed in and once of the better hotels in Europe. the main reason for this is the staff, they make sure you are taken care of all the time. the highlight was when someone knocked on my door at 8 PM while i was still working and offered me some night snacks ( i took the yogurt ).

In addition to the great room which is very comfortable, the hotel location is right next to the Train station and on Zurich main street. what more would i ask :)

If you can afford it i recommend trying this hotel.

Room Tip: Go for room that face the street not the back. also make sure you stay in none smoking room

You just cannot beat the location, the size and provisions of the rooms or the generosity of the breakfast buffet. Everything you want to see is within walking distance. It might not look like a 5-star hotel but it is! The service is beyond compare.

Our second time back to this hotel,but this time with family.
I must say that this is the best welcoming hotel that I have ever stayed at.
Rooms are lovely and ours, room 403,(which has been just upgraded) is about as perfect as one can imagine for a hotel in its class.It has a wonderful high tech bathroom! And we also had a butler. I was not really prepared again for this high class personalized service.
Amazing.
If one can afford it, it is quite a lovely hotel to stay at.

Room Tip: Room 403 has been upgraded-no view to speak of BUT the room is superb!

A fantastic hotel; great location; 5 + Star Service. Would recommend everyone should stay here, their attention to detail (the small things that matter) from warm towels and a welcoming drink upon arrival, to the chocolates and fresh fruit in their excellent rooms is superb. Not fogetting their Breakfast!. Everything in Zurich is just a 5 minutes walk away. You can not get a better a hotel. Upon hearing we were celebrating a birthday, they gave me a personal hand written card when we left, this was in addition to the gifts we had received upon arrival celebrating a 25th wedding anniversary. Nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff, who from the Porter; to the Reception to the Restaurant staff were so helpful it has set a standard that many, if not all, 5 Star Hotels don't even achieve. Thank you Hotel Schweizerhof - we will see you again!

Location location location!! The hotel is across the road from Zurich HB and sits at the beginning of banhofstrasse. It takes less than one minute to walk to the train station and there are many tram routes in front of the hotel too.

However it does not take its location for granted. I was greeted with warm and hospitable service both at the time of check in and check out. I was given choice of a welcome drink and then given chocolates as a takeaway gift at check out. In addition a butler service comes around every evening to offer snacks such as fresh fruit, yogurt or chocolates and reading material. Breakfast was also wonderful with champagne served upon request. How grand!

I suppose my only gripe was that the rooms were small. That said I also note that most hotels which are centrally located within Zurich in general are very compact and small. Although the rooms were compact, the hotel's furnishings were very comfortable and elegant. Soundproofing was not very good though so one could hear guests speaking along corridors. Best to get a corner room for light sleepers.

We checked in bit early (by 04 hours) after a 12 hour flight from Singapore.
But Ms.Gabrilla (Front Office) took due care of it.
Rooms are big with mandatory chocolates & fruits in the evening. Location is superb, everything is just few steps away. Great Hotel & good service. Surely return.

Room Tip: Request to allocate you the corner rooms.
