Wherever I go traveling, I look first for the Stigenberger brand, so I may be a little bias! but I have stayed with them in multiple cities and have never been disappointed. The main reason I stay with them over all else?? they let me bring my dog! Why do soooo many hotels say no!

Anyway, Zurich... The hotel is RIGHT on the edge of Lake Zurich... I mean get your feet wet close! and the restuarant & breakfast rooms are all on the first floor with a fantastic view over the lake and towards the mountains. Breakfast with this view was a pleasure each and every day.

An easy walk into the old town, but it is a walk.... perhaps 10 minutes? but again, alongside the lake this was never a chore... and plenty of Taxis & trams around should you wish.

The room itself was very Swiss if that doesn't sound odd... very high quality, but lots of wood (including the floor)... I think it is the first hotel I have been to without a carpet in the room.... but it totally works for the look of the place.

And then all the usual Stigenberger stuff.... amazing food, fantastically and genuinely helpful and friendly staff.... generally exactly what I would expect having been to a fair few of these hotels.

All in all... cant recommend it enough!

Room Tip: Facing the lake of course!

Hotel was great. We had the Junior Suite and it was beautiful. Very spacious and worth the extra money. It was also sound proof, so we did not hear any of the noise from the street. Loved the view. Location was great, we could walk to everything. Lots of great restaurants nearby with many different themes.

The negatives were: Balcony was very small, not really functional. Cost of breakfast was very pricey. Also, hotel doesn't provide airport shuttle which was surprising, and the cost of the taxi was very expensive - around $65.00.

Room Tip: Junior Suite was worth the money!

This hotel was wonderful. Nothing was too much trouble for them either for the conference suite we rented or the rooms. The staff were knowledgeable friendly and very amenable to our requests. Beautifully appointed rooms, with everything you could possibly need. I wish I hadn't had to work so late and could have enjoyed longer in the bed. The most beautiful thing was sitting eating a very good breakfast, whilst watching the sunrise over the lake. I definitely recommend.

Very clean, comfortable and good toiletries!

It takes you only 10 minutes of walking to the old town of Zurich. The staffs are friendly. The rooms are cosy, we stayed in a room with a balcony facing the lake - the view is spectacular! I personally like the bathroom and the hotel's sauna.

The hotel is very dull, and the rooms were too small. The whole hotel needs a total renovation in my opinion. The nearest tram station is not very close, so it hard to roam around the city. However, the room was clean and the staff were friendly.

Dear Guest,
Thank you very much for taking the time to write about your experiences while staying with us and your kind words regarding the cleanliness. I will share your comments with my team.
We do offer 4 different types of rooms. Our regular rooms have a size of 25m2, which is a regular size in Zurich. If you prefer more space, we recommend our Junior Suites with 55m2.

Kind regards from Zurich,

I've been trying to find a hotel of quality for a reasonable price in Zurich for the past year and the Steigenberger could be it! The location, on the lake, is perfect as it is within walking distance to most tourist attractions. A huge advantage is that it is just off the tourist path so we found the hotel to be extremely quiet. The hotel is tucked between two car dealerships, which is odd, and the lobby area is very small. There is a lounge on the first floor which doesn't have much character but is sufficient for a quick drink. Our hotel room was lovely and very well laid out with a desk, sofa, coffee table and side tables in addition to the large double bed and end tables. The flat screen television was on a clever mobile stand and could be moved to face the bed, sofa or desk area. The marble bathroom was a good size and the room/bath were spotlessly clean.

The hotel staff were extremely helpful giving us maps, written directions, restaurant recommendations and the use of umbrellas during a rainy few days. All in all it was a great choice for our short Zurich visit and we will be pleased to stay at the Zurich Steigenberger Bellerive au Lac again.
