A comfortable, but rather basic hotel a short walk from Bahnhofstrasse. Very friendly staff who make you feel welcome. The ground floor restaurant is good and is open until 11 pm also on Sundays. We handed over our car keys for parking. Excellent service!

Every time I go to Zurich I book Glaernischhof hotel. Why ? Location (walking distance to the lake, shopping street, old town, restaurants ); rooms are clean, bed is very comfortable. Staff is very helpful and friendly. I am traveling a lot around the world and this hotel is one of the best for me.

Super friendly FO staff, tasty welcome drink, great amenities are only a few of the fantastic drinks at the hotel. A very unique thing they do is free 20 CHF restaurant voucher plus free mini bar. We were amazed. I...

Hotel Glärnischhof is a very nice place to stay for business in Zürich, where I have visited several times. Its location worked well for me, a short tram/taxi ride away from train stations, close to the center of the city and a short walk over the bridge to Bellevue/Opernhaus, where I stumbled on the Christmas market this year. Very good...

Glaernischhof is different, everything is perfect and the staff is amazing; one detail after another, my family was always pleasantly surprised and we...

I took my grandson with me, he thought the room, bathroom and especially the beds were just perfect.
