“Great location.”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

This is a really nice hotel, located on the lake of Zurich.
The staff are very pleasant and helpful (my luggage never arrived - airline's fault).
Rooms are a decent size for Zurich city.
My shower was not as powerful as I would like.
I would return to this hotel.

We like this hotel but the family room is a bit odd in terms of how it's set up but it was nice & comfortable. We had a long skinny room with two balconies, one at each end of the rectangle room. Not much room to walk around or store luggage. One balcony faced the lake and the other faced the city so we had great views. The hotel & room are slightly older with modest decor. Very basic.Small lobby. Bathroom was very large & modern in dark green marble which seemed like masculine decor. It took some time to figure out the lights & fixtures, and the shower is small. Staff was nice. Breakfast was not included. Free WiFi. Far from train station & airport, need to take a taxi. About 20 minutes walking distance to major sight seeing. But lovely hotel situated right on the lake.

Its the best bet for you in Zurich if you are in Zurich for leisure with family and want to relax and free your mind from your work pressures.

Great Service, always smiling and ready to help staff.

Wonderful view, try to take the top most floor available for a clear and unhindered view of lake. Balcony will become you favourite spot of your room.

Most wonderful sight is when sun is setting and fountain starts on the other side of lake.

Lots of birds, swans and ducks are a treat to eyes.

You like jogging you have the track just across the road.

Room is big enough for a family of three.

Room Tip: Try Top Most Floor for an unhindered view of lake

We enjoyed our stay at Steigenberger Bellerive au Lac very much. The staff was wonderful - accommodating and most helpful! Our room was very comfortable, clean, spacious and had a splendid view of the lake. The bathroom was large and modern. The food at the restaurant was exquisite! We thoroughly enjoyed each of our meals and the waitresses were wonderful. The location of the hotel is also excellent. The Zurich Opera House is only 5 minutes away and the walk to the center of town only takes about 10 to 15 minutes (and it is a lovely walk). The only thing that put a slight damper on our stay was the poor internet connection. We either had a very slow connection or no connection at all. That being said, we would be very happy and content to stay at Steigenberger Bellerive au Lac again!

On the shore of Zurich's lake, the Steigenberger is very modern, elegant, and clean. The personnel is cordial, the rooms are modern and have most of the requisite amenities of a 4 star hotel. Very nice large modern bathroom. Very comfortable bed. From our fourth four room the view of the lake and the hills in the distance was idyllic. The position is perfect, in easy walking distance of the center of town and myriad restaurants, bars, etc. The breakfast (not included) offers everything any client could ask for. The hotel would earn an enthusiastic 5 stars except for the fact that it did not have air conditioning. The options thus were, leave the balcony door close and become submerged in sweat or open the door and be kept awake by the high-power sports car that tested the volume of their exhaust pipes at all hours of the night. In May it was barely tolerable. Frankly, I would hate to be there later in the summer.

Room Tip: The views of the lake are breathtaking but the noise is problematical given the lack of air conditio...

Dear Guest,
Thank you very much for your review. We know you have many choices when it comes to accommodation in Zurich and therefore highly appreciate your stay with us.
Due to the age of our building and local laws, it is rather an impossible project to install an air condition. Our hotel has an air ventilation system, which we are constantly updating.
The traffic in front of our hotel does get busy on certain times as it is one of the main roads entering Zurich. I am really sorry to read that you also experienced a misbehaviour of car drivers at night.

Kind regards from Zurich,
Claudia Egli

A calm, well-organised, un-fussy hotel in a beautiful position overlooking the lake close to the Opera House and all the attractions of the Old Town. The rooms and en suite bathrooms were spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The staffing seems to be kept to a minimum but the service offered is excellent. All staff were of a high professional standard. I can highly recommend this hotel for a quiet tourist trip or as a business venue. Much like Zurich itself!
