This is a very charming hotel in a perfect location in the old town. Wonderful staff, clean comfortable room with queen bed and the breakfasts were great. The room was very quiet and peaceful. Steps away from the beautiful clear waters of the lake.
We had 2 rooms. This is a boutique hotel. Its in a great location across the lake in the old town. All the shops and restaurants are steps away. The rooms are a bit small, also the bathrooms. But they are renovated and very cute. This feels like being at home. The staff is very nice and hospitable. The breakfast buffet is relatively small. A few basic items. Precooked omelet and sausage trays. Selection of fruits. The restaurant staff is wonderful and very attentive. I thought that the rooms would be noisy considering the location of the hotel, but the rooms are incredibly quite. We had a nice view of the plaza from big corner windows. The beds are a little too stiff for me. These are not spring or foam mattresses. Also the pillows are not the best quality. But everything else is excellent. I was a little worried about the air conditioning, as there was a heat wave in Europe. But, the A/C is very good. …
We were able to get our most restful stay of our trip here—and good sleep sure is priceless. The rooms aren’t super fancy, but staff were great and room layout and TV selection was also great. We had connecting rooms to accommodate our family of four. Very convenient proximity to attractions in old town. We enjoyed our stay here.
Beautiful, well appointed hotel with lovely helpful staff. Great location for exploring Zurich. The building is over 700 years old and has been beautifully restored and provided very comfortable accommodation. The breakfasts were delicious!
We stayed at Hotel Helmhaus for two nights with our son in a triple room. It’s very well located really near the lake and lots of restaurants and shops and all the major sights. The staff were very helpful with instructions for transport, spare chargers and printing tickets for us. I’d recommend a trip to the mountains to FlumserBerg where there is a toboggan on a rail - and it was cooler there which was nice!
Everything was perfect at this lovely hotel! The room was perfectly appointed with 2 twin beds that could be moved together or separated. Bedding was luxurious and comfortable. The bathroom had a tub and was probably one of the largest I’ve seen in Europe. Best part was the location - right on the canal and central to all the best sites in Zurich. I would also be remiss if I did not mention the amazing front desk personnel who could not have been any more helpful. Don’t hesitate to book The Helmhaus when you visit Zurich!
One of the best hidden secrets in Zurich. Located in the heart of old Zurich and 6 min walk to the opera house and Bahnhofstrasse. Absolutely the best service and great breakfast. Also, super clean and very quite. The only thing is that the rooms are very small even in European standards and the beds are extremely small.
This boutique hotel is ideally located but is away from the hub-bub. Close to everything including the Bahnhofstrasse. Tucked away from prying eyes, there are restaurants, the pier, lake Zurich, all within a stones’ throw. The building is over 700 years old and has been magnificently maintained. Look for ester Portman, she is the proprietor and really takes care of you.
This is a beautiful hotel on a side alley in the old city. Exceedingly friendly reception and capable of multiple languages. Very convenient to transportation from the Hauptbahnhoff and to the airport. Cafes within meters... and several of the sites you'll want to see within a very short walk. 700 year old building is fantastically built and renovated. We thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay.
Our party of 6 stayed two nights in this charming hotel. The rooms are spacious, clean and well appointed. Good size bathroom and plenty of closet space. The service was good and the location is great - very close to the bridge and a great area for walking. Plenty of shops and restaurants nearby. Would definitely choose this hotel again!
