“Perfect position in Zurich”
Reviewed 12 February 2014

We spent one lovely night at the Schweizerhof. On arrival we were told we had been upgraded, I’m not sure what we gained in this upgrade except maybe our room was on a higher floor. We had 2 nice rooms, maybe a little on the small side, looking towards the railway station, which isn't an amazing view but this hotel is in the city. The rooms were nicely decorated and our bathroom was huge with double basins, a full bath, separate shower and interesting toilet with a built in bidet system and dryer. One snag with our room, it was an end room under the eaves which meant my husband hit his head on the sloping ceiling a few times and he isn’t very tall! Perhaps a little neon strip on the edge might alert people to the height of the ceiling here. This hotel had lots of thoughtful little extras, including a bowl of fruit on every floor and fruit and chocolates in the lobby. Breakfast was a lavish affair, huge assortment of cereals, fruits, breads, pastries, cheeses, cold meats, yoghurts and orders were taken for bacon, sausages, eggs and pancakes. Nothing seemed too much trouble here for anyone. The little coffee shop on the right of the entrance was delightful, always busy and serving a nice variety of cakes, pastries and snacks.
This is an excellent hotel, nicely positioned for the station and trams and for a quick visit or stop over in Zurich, absolutely perfect.

This is our hotel of choice when in Zurich. The hotel staff are very professional and personable
The rooms and facilities are wonderful and the food is excellent. The location is also very convenient. I can't wait to return.

The hotel is located directly across the station so ideal for business and travel from Zurich elsewhere across the region. The hotel is appointed to a good standard but rooms are small but comfortable. Prices are high as is the case anywhere in Zurich so not value for money but that issue is the same everywhere across the entire country. Its ideal for its convenience rather than anything standout and less suitable for vacationers.

The Hotel Schweizerhof is located opposite the main train station in Zurich. We usually stay at the other end of the Bahnhofstrasse near the lake, but we arrived by train into Zurich and decided to book near the station. I read some of the glowing reviews on Trip Advisor and we decided to book two nights at this hotel. We were absolutely delighted with our faultless stay. The service was impeccable and all of the staff were friendly and incredibly helpful. The room was smallish, but had all expected amenities and the room was so quiet despite overlooking a very busy street. It is located on the best shopping street in Zurich and has many lovely restaurants within walking distance. We had a delicious breakfast in the more formal restaurant upstairs, but also had brunch in the coffee shop on the ground floor. Again, the staff, even in the busy coffee shop were so friendly and welcoming. I loved our stay here and will definitely book here on our next visit.

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.
