I've been in so many places around the world 3,4& 5 stars hotels.

This hotel is the best, I like their generosity & kind help, they are No. 1 in my opinion.

If you plane to visit Zurich, don't go to any other hotel but this

Perfect location average prices to Zurich hotels & kind staff

Cheers Schwizerhof Hotel

The Schweizerhof is a lovely hotel and the location could not be more convenient. They are not kidding when they say the rooms are quiet; you would never know you are in the heart of a bustling city. The staff was very friendly and professional, and the front desk staff in particular was very enthusiastic. We had a problem with our reservation which the front office manager handled promptly and courteously. The restaurant staff was top-notch, and the breakfast buffet was outstanding (special thanks to Yves and René).

A terrific experience all around. My wife and I would not hesitate to recommend the Schweizerhof, and we look forward to staying there again.

Excellent location just across the street from the central train station! Nice decor and clean facilities and professional service standard! Kind ambience and helpful attitude among the staff. I arrived slightly before the standard noon check in time and the staff seeing how tired I was allowed me to check in my room slightly early.

I had the occasion to stay just before Christmas 2012. This location is perfect walking distance from the bahnhofstrasse and the train station. The staff was a pleasure as always. It was very convenient having a shipping station on-site to handle some gifts I had purchased. Always a pleasure to walk in from a long day and be greeted with a flute of champagne.

Room Tip: Rooms away from the rail are quieter, but with less view.

Ok, this place is not cheap especially compared to the swanky places in Asia you can get for the price. However it is a historic hotel and in comparison to its peers in the area it was very nice.
You can't do better location wise, bang in front of the lovely main train station with the world famous Bahnhoff Str starting to the left of the hotel and the old city, river and lake to you right.

The quality and cleanliness of the rooms were excellent, real luxury. Bigger than most hotels I have stayed in the city and they have thought of everything a business traveler needs.
They also have a old school concept of amenities which was nice, fresh fruit and coffee on the corridors, postcards that they will send for free anywhere in the world (brownie points from the Mrs)... I mean who offers that in the world of emails and skype.

Service was the best, from the welcome drink spontaneously presented by the receptionist to the swiss chocolates the 'butler' brings you in the evening the staff really look-after you like they care.

I've stayed in Zurich only for one night. The hotel is just in front of Zurich central station, which makes it better to use it from airport transfers (and also cheaper). The welcome desk reception was efficient and friendly. The hotel room was comfortable and loved the soaps and shampoo. The perfect touch was the eau de parfum sample that was also available. Good table to work and good insonorization. The complimentary tea, coffee and cookies was also nice and having a basket with fruit was great. The hotel is also in a great area for shopping although I did not have that luck... I would go back again but I would watch out prices because it was an expensive rate.

The hotel is located across the street from the main train station and also right next to the main walking street, which is extremely convenient. Staff is friendly and service is good. However, the rooms are expensive and also quite small. I would have to say that there are similar quality of hotels in Zurich with a more reasonable price.
