“Excellent option in Zürich, Switserland”
Reviewed 3 October 2013

From the first moment of our arrival, tomthe last second of our departure, the stay in Hotel Glärnischhof was excellent. Even a thoughtfull decorated plate with a cupcake, fruits and in chocolat letters happy birthday was part of our memorable stay.
An optimal location, not too close to the city center, but a very acceptable 5 minutes walk to the city center and even closer to the Züricher See.
An absoltue reccomendation !
The rooms are very spacey and well decorated, very comfy beds. For family with kids I recommend the room with bed sofa !
Breakfasu left nothing to desire and the service was kind and thoughtfull.
Parking nicely tucked away behind the hotel.

I stayed at the Hotel Glaenischhof whilst in Zurich for a couple of nights. The hotel itself is clean, dry and warm and provides a good base for spending time within the city.

Whilst the rooms were a little dated, they were well equipped with TV, mini bar, A/C etc which did make for a comfortable stay. I did eat in the hotel restaurant, the food was of good quality, the wine was rather delicious, but I would say a little bit more diverse choice would have made me eat there again.

If you want a room tip, when you get to the hotel, the block it's on is quite small. There are a number of building works currently happening, and whilst it did not affect me in the night, if you did want a lay in, you might struggle to do so. Also, look out on the walls for buttons... I was slightly confused why the curtains did not fit the window width, then realised they had external shutters for that "baton down the hatches" feeling.

The hotel is located only a short walk from the old town in Zurich, and very close to the lake (it's at the end of the street). Good location for exploring, but is on the other side of the city to the train station (around a £15 taxi ride)

Dear Guest

Thank you for taking the time to comment on tripadvisor and for choosing the Hotel Glärnischhof in the heart of Zurich.

We are always happy to receive feedback - also constructive feedback as it is very important to satisfy our guests everyday and to improve our service quality.

The rooms are decorated and furnished to ensure comfort but equally as well functionality.
Our team is glad that you took the opportunity to visit our restaurant but we also strongly took note that the choice diversity in the hotel restaurant did not satisfy you.
We do offer two restaurants and perhaps you could try our fish restaurant "Le Poisson" for your next stay, which is a well known restaurant in Zurich.

We nevertheless hope you enjoyed your stay and would be delighted to welcome you back again in the future.

I stayed in the hotel with my family in August. Despite the fact that I am frequent visitor to Zurich, but that was my first stay in this Hotel. It was far better than what I expected. Very good location near Zurich Lake, big rooms, nice furniture, great breakfast and friendly staff. Many thanks to everybody in this Hotel.

This is a value proposition. Its just a few mins from barnhoffstrasse and is as central as can be -- the lake is a few minutes too , and the train station is a short ride away -- buses are round the corner -- and the cost half of pricey counterparts. For short business trips where one has no time for the resort and ambience , its ideal.

Rooms are small but very clean.

The food is good to above average. The restaurant is small but functional. A requirement if one wants to get something quickly and retire.

Service is with a smile.

The wifi is excellent and serves good purpose - a must indeed.

Lots of attractions all around.

Its the balance between price and location that makes this a good deal.

Recommend strongly.

We stayed in Zurich for two nights for our honeymoon. The staff at the hotel were wonderful particularly Denny who looked after us and organised for gifts on arrival. The gym just up the road (1 minute walk) is great with everything and the price for a room is reasonable for Zurich. The location is more in the business area of the city but is close to the water and the trams make it extremely easy to travel around. We ended up with two single beds pushed together into a queen which was probably the only negative about the visit. Highly recommend this hotel.

We spent a very pleasant week in this hotel. Only good things to talk about! For Zurich standards it is a midprice hotel and it certainly delivers a lot of value for money. Very, very friendly and efficient staff, nice rooms, adequate airco, good breakfast menu, free wifi of good quality, free usage of the gym nearby, nice gestures such as a fruit platter as a welcome gift. We stayed here during the Street Parade, when Zurich seemed overcrowded by drunken youth. The staff kept us well informed about this event. We found the location of the hotel perfect. It is in a quiet neighborhood but very close to the lake and you can easily walk to the city center in about five minutes. A minor discomfort is the tiny breakfast room, which can be crowded when many people want to have breakfast at the same time.

Room Tip: Our room was at the backside of the hotel. We did not have much of a view, but it was quiet.

Hotel is located very close to main bahnstrasse, old city, and the lake. It is not in central street, but the rooms are clean, plain design, that keeps things simple suited for short stay.
The room had coffee machine with tea and coffee capsules, which is nice, you can have coffee before breakfast.
Toilet and bathroom is separate, which I really consider thing to think when you are two people.
Breakfast was plentiful, and reception was friendly.
Overall I enjoyed my 2 day stay in this hotel with my husband.
