Unique Qualities: Located on top of Uetliberg, this 4 star hotel is overlooking Zurich and offers breathtaking view at day and even more at night. You are about 400 meters above the city.

We had a nice room in the second building, with view over the city. Great stay!

Hotel Schweizerhof Zurich: Hotel Schweizerhof Hotel Schweizerhof Zurich Review
Show Prices

I spent a week at Hotel Schweizerhof during a Businesstrip. I assume that we got the smallest rooms in the whole hotel, because of our corporate rates. The room and the bed were very small.

Unique Qualities: I love the breakfast buffet especially because of their cold cut, bread and cheese selection. The service was also great. My favorite is the butler who drops by every night with his trolley. He offers a wide selection of chocolate, adapters, magazines, etc. - free of charge!

And of course, you can't beat the location. But this is why the hotel is quite expensive.

Address: Bahnhof Platz 7, 8001 Zürich

Comparison: more expensive than average

Directions: Opposite Mainstation, just a few steps from Bahnhofstrasse

My friends stayed there during a business trip.
The rooms were very small and only good for a night or two. Since then they made a huge renovation. I don't know, how the room look like now. I guess they must be bigger then prices are a whopping 300 to 500 Francs a night!

Unique Qualities: The location can't be beaten! Right at Central, just 5 minutes from the Main Station, entry point to the Old Town, huge Tram Stop right in front of the hotel. GREAT!

City Backpacker / Hotel Biber: Awesome location! City Backpacker Hotel Biber Review
Show Prices

Well, I'm living so close to Zurich, that I never had to stay in a hostel or hotel in Zurich. But if I were a tourst, I'd stay here.

Unique Qualities: The location is excellent. Right in the heart of the Old Town, about 10 minutes walk from the Main Station, 2 minutes to the next Tram Stop and just about 10 minutes walk to the lake. GREAT!

Address: Niederdorfstrasse 5, 8010 Zürich

Comparison: less expensive than average

Directions: The Niederdorfstrasse is the main walking street in the Old Town. The hotel is about 5 min. walk from Central. Check out the map. The entrance is in a smaller sidealley. You have to turn to the right at the nice Kebap Stand on the left.
