Hotel Glaernischhof
Ranked #12 of 137 Hotels in Zurich
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 August 2014

Good location, comfortable room with ample space, excellent service and check in procedure.
We arrived at 8:30 AM after an all night flight from South Africa. The normal check in was 3:00 PM but the desk manager put a special effort into the prep for our room and we were in the room by 10:30 AM after it had only been vacated as we arrived. Breakfast was included and although it was the same everyday for four days it was of excellent quality. The desk clerk doubled as the concierge and did a great job making us reservations and offering advice.

We stayed here for 3 nights in August as we were in Zurich to watch the European Athletics Championships. The hotel staff are lovely - they can't do enough for you. The room was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. The room includes a complementary mini bar with chocolate!! The TV had BBC 1 and 2 so we could watch the athletics when we weren't at the stadium. The buffet breakfast was excellent. I particularly liked the luxury tea bags! The hotel is in a great location near to the lake and easy walking distance of the old town. If we came back to Zurich we would definitely stay here again.

This hotel is incredible. I have stayed in various hotels around the world but none can match this hotel in the quality of the rooms and the quality of service. My wife and I and our 4 children had the best experience during our overnight stay at this hotel. In summary, it was the best of the 4 hotels we stayed in during this 3-country tour of Europe.

Room Tip: All the rooms are excellent.

Staff could not have been more polite and helpful. I would mention the reservations team as when we wanted to amend our booking during a very busy period in Zurich, (European Games) and with a full hotel, they still managed to accommodate us by rechecking all bookings until they found the 2 rooms we required.- Just about every other hotel was booked up.
Very central and with easy walking to the transportation links and the old town.

Dear guest

We are very glad that we could reserve you rooms in the end and it is great to hear that your stay with us was a good one.

Even if we are already “fully booked” in the online booking engines, it’s always worth it to contact us directly via telephone. If we get any late cancellations we might be able to offer you an accommodation last minute.

Like every reservation made direct with us, we would grant you a 5 % discount on your last minute reservation, too.

With best regards and hoping to welcoming you back soon

I made a booking through booking.com where it'd allowed me to book a triple room & pay for an extra bed so I thought that meant 4 of us were ok. Arrived & only had a triple room (max 3 persons) booked, the staff went out of their way to sort this out for us & another bed was put in.
Complimentary drink on arrival is a nice touch & it was good to have breakfast included in the price.
Very close to everything, centre & boat terminal.
Had a lovely stay.

I stayed at Hotel Glaernischhof over the weekend of Ironman Zurich and would highly recommend this hotel for anyone thinking of participating next year. The hotel is also a great location for anyone just wanting a break in Zurich, being it is close to the lake, the old town and near to many central tram links.
All the hotel staff were welcoming, across front of house, housekeeping and the restaurant team. My room was great and overall the hotel far exceeded my expectations and was good value for money with some lovely touches (including free toblerone!).
Of specific value for anyone involved in the Ironman is that the team went out of their way to help my 4am preparations, including laying on a special Ironman carbo-loading breakfast for participants and an early breakfast for supporters. The start is about a 15 min walk by the lake, which makes registration, access on the morning etc, very straightforward and a bus also runs direct every 15 mins if you want to rest your legs.
