When booking the hotel, which may seem expensive for a Best Western, you soon learn from comparisons that Zurich overall is very expensive - especially to stay in the heart of the city near the lake. Once we arrived though, being unsure about it being a "best western" and thinking of the traditional BW hotel, this was anything but what...

Dear guest I was very pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us and hope to welcoming you back in the future.

Convinient for public transport - and jet you sleep very well in the top quality rooms. Just next to Bahnhofstrasse, a five minutes walk along it brings you next to the Hotel. Beautifull rooms, wonderful hidden little garden with all day summer garden restaurant, charming staff and very good quality food. Cooking is traditional but of very high standard. Little...

It was an nice hotel it was clean the service is amazing with free wifi and free breakfast ! The breakfast was good although. We were three so we took economy room with extra bed for 180 frank , it is a good price for a room in Switzerland since the country is so expensive.

This was our second stay in this property after many years. Obviously upgrades have been done over the years. The lobby and rooms have brighter colours now. The room was adequate, the reading lights on the wall behind the bed are a bit sharp and dangerous if one moves quickly. The bathroom is kept in dark colours and ventilation could...

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...

If you're a US Citizen, don't be afraid of the Best Western Brand in Europe. This hotel in particular is a great city-center hotel. Rooms are of ample size. Staff was cordial. 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...

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...
