Within very easy walking distance from the main train station. The room 101, was facing the inner courtyard, smallish with a double sized bed, although advertised as king sized bed 140cm, which reception advised we could upgrade for 60CHF, but as I felt the room was pricey enough we did not upgrade. The air conditioning was very welcome on such...

We stayed at the Hotel Glockenhof again recently, and thankfully it was every bit as good as the first time with reliable, free internet; bowls of apples; a voucher for a free drink etc. Our stay also included the same niggle as our last review! The breakfast buffet was good, but guests were picking food up with their hands for...

The hotel is located just off the main shopping area, Bahnoffstrasse. The areas of interest are within walking distance too. Just across the river is the quaint old town, and the old church of Grossmunster. You can get to the hotel from the train station by walk, even with luggage in about ten minutes. The lake can be visited on...

A lot of hotels spend all their refurb money on Reception and Public Areas and leave the rooms as an afterthought. This hotel is the other way round. It is centrally located, friendly staff on reception and in the bar and a fair 4 star hotel. 5 star prices tho, this is Zurich! Go direct to the hotel and avoid...

The "Best Western" in the name of this place could put you off, but despite that it is a really good, 4 star hotel, right in the main shopping area. The reception area is a bit dowdy but the rooms are clean and fresh and there is a lovely garden courtyard for dining. The staff are really helpful, a real...

Central location with nicely renovated rooms! Bathrooms were clean and nicely done up. Shops are located nearby to the hotel. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was normal like the other hotels. Wouldn't mind coming back again.

This Best Western was excellent in all areas if you do want to pay a little more than others in an outlying area. It is close to restaurants, city transportation, shopping , and all tourist sites. It is in a rather costly area so be prepared to pay a little more than in another area.
