I was lost and I stopped by this hotel and even though I wasn't staying here the staff were incredible. They called me a cab and offered my daughter and I to stay in their comfortable lounge. The hotel looked amazing and I would stay there in a heartbeat when I visit wonderful Zurich again.

We visited overnight to spend time with my aunt. She booked dinner in the hotel for convenience. The dinner was good but not great. That is the only negative about the hotel. The bedroom was very modern and lovely. Creative use of space. Loved the materials in the bathroom. I asked for a quiet, allergy friendly room and that is... More

Great breakfast each morning. Did not like the shower/tub in the bathroom. Design was not great...and the entire floor was soaked. Bed was comfortable. Had an issue with... More

We feel this is an ideal hotel for Zurich – it's convenient, not overly pricy, and is rather classy. Located just one block from Bahnhofstrasse with all its glitter and the trams, Hotel Glockenhof is an eight minute walk from the main train station (slightly uphill going to the hotel) and about 15 minutes to the Limmat River and the...

Have stayed here several times. Great position in centre of Zurich. Staff always very attentive and friendly. Restaurant and bar good and breakfast included. Pricey but not over the top for Switzerland. Internet in rooms good.

Heated tiles in the bathroom floor? Elegant bedding and linens? Yes and yes. And you get champagne at the exquisite breakfast included in the morning, with a great array of food choices. Very friendly concierge. Great location to city center.
