“Understated brilliance”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 February 2014

We recently spent a couple of nights in the Zurich Schweizerhof and cannot recommend it highly enough. The service was impeccable, the facilities were excellent and the staff were very accommodating. We will return there every time we visit Zurich in the future.

This is the most wonderfully understated and stylish hotels I have had the pleasure of staying in.The staff are professional to the utmost and the whole hotel and the organisation thereof, is to be admired.
The rooms are of a good size and extremely comfortable. The food in the restaurant is top class and the rissotto is to die for. They even provide small side table for the lady to place her handbag during the meal.
There can be no better hotel to stay in Zurich, and the location is ideal for the Railway Station and the Bahnhofstrasse.

Located across the road from Zurich Hauptbahnhof you cannot get a more central location in town. The rooms are well equipped and extremely well soundproofed from outside traffic noise. The breakfast (included in the room rate) is of high quality. Meals in the French inspired restaurant are tasty and well presented. However, what makes this hotel special is the very personal and friendly service rendered by all staff. Hotel Schweizerhof is clearly a hotel to return to.

We stayed in the Schweizerhof in Zurich for a few days in December on holiday before we went skiing and it was absolutely amazing! Stunning rooms with lots of space, friendly staff, amazing breakfast and happy atmosphere! Definitely a must for anyone.

I've visited Zurich for the New Year Eve, and stayed for four lovely days at the Schweizerhof Hotel. The hotel staff was very kind, and helpful. The breakfast at the Restaurant La Soupiere was delicious. I love their fresh breads and cheeses. The room was comfy with an awesome view to the main station and shopping street. Starbucks is just across the street from the other side of the hotel, that I can see it from my room windows. Coffee maker in the room + little pieces of chorale, fruit basket, and free bottle of water. The day of my arrival when i came back to my room at night I found a red XMAS slippers with pieces of chocolate and a lovely letter from the hotel management.
Most importantly, the hotel is just in front of the main central train station. it took me only 15 minutes ride from the airport to the station. The hotel also offer complimentary escort from the train station to the hotel. The day I checked out they offer me free bottle of water at the reception + chocolate and an escort to the train station.
I loved my stay at the Schweizerhof Hotel, and definitely would not stay anywhere else when I get back to Zurich.

Room Tip: I choose the deluxe room and it was a good sized room.

We have stayed in Zurich a few times but this is the first time staying at Hotel Schweizerhof. From the first entry to the hotel the service was exceptional. We had used a railway luggage trolley to take our luggage from railway, which is just over the road, to the hotel. The porter, without request returned trolley for us. Check in quick and efficient. Room well appointed and comfortable. Chocolates, fruit. Facility for tea. Dining for breakfast and dinner well worth using their facilities. Huge meals, could buy one and share!
