The hotel is situated near the center of the city and right next to Zurich's main shopping street "Bahnhofstrasse". The breakfast selection was really good, and the service provided by the staff was great. However, the rooms seemed to be small and not much spacious. Also, there are no beautiful views as the hotel is situated in the city near Zurich's main train station. Overall, its a great quality hotel in a very good location.

Our third visit to this centrally located and very comfortable hotel. Next to the railway station on Bahnhofstrasse which is the shopping street of Zurich. Famous retail names are on every corner, some very expensive ones but it is good to look. Checking in was easy and made all the better by the offer of a warm towel and a glass of Prosecco. Luggage delivered to your room and you can settle in very quickly to a very pleasant room with a lovely bathroom. The hotel bar, cafe and restaurant are all quite excellent. We tried all three during our stay and service levels are very high, a committed and well trained staff. Breakfast is very good with a good selection of food and drinks. Again service is excellent but the breakfast room can be very busy and turn over can be quick as there are a lot of business people staying. This all adds to the bustle of the place. Incidentally while turn over can be quick, you are never ever rushed. Breakfast can be as leisurely as you wish and I would certainly recommend taking your time and soaking up the atmosphere. We stayed for a fourth time shortly after the third visit and once again enjoyed our stay. well done Schweizerhof! We will be back!

This iconic hotel is just steps from the main train station and Bahnhofstrasse, tej shopper’s paradise. Well equipped, quiet and comfortable rooms and a delightful buffet breakfast. But the hotel’s most precious asset is the staff. Friendly, efficient, helpful, they make you feel at home. Many thanks!

The staff at the Schweizerhof are extemely helpful and friendly and it was always great to be cheerfully greeted everytime I returned to the hotel after an exhausting shopping expedition down the Bahnhofstrasse :) The rooms are as one would expect in a five star establishment. Being alone, I had a standard room both times I stayed during my week in Switzerland and it was fine but not generously large. My son and his family had a room which was like a junior suite and it was definitely big enough for them. The key feature of the hotel is the location, it's across the street from the main station so it's really convenient. As mentioned, the shopping is totally accessible. The Old Town is nearby so walking to charming retaurants is very easy. Highly recommended!

One of the best hotels I’ve stayed in. From the moment I arrived until check out everything was perfect. The staff are friendly and helpful and always available to assist. It’s located with. 3 minute walk to the train station and is surrounded by the tram stops with close distance to Bahnhofplatz and a short walk to old town. They gave me great restaurants recommendations and arranged my airport transfer efficiently. The rooms while a little small are well appointed quite and have everything you need. With tea coffee and toiletries. They are clean and even has an adjustable electric bed. Highly recommended well run top quality hotel - would definitely stay there again.
