Hotel Helmhaus is practically perfect. It's perfectly located in Old Town, next to iconic churches and the beautiful river. It's small, as many European hotels are, but the updated bathroom was nice and spacious and the bed was comfy. There's a fridge, good closet space and a little desk. Breakfast was continental but had enough food that I came back...

Reviewed 20 September 2016

Really enjoyed my stay here. It is very convenient to hop a tram or simply stroll through the historic streets. I stayed on business and it was quite pleasant, room was great. You are only a few blocks from Bahnhofstrasse where there is tons of high end shopping. I prefer the smaller shops which are right around the area myself.

Yes, the hotel is centrally located, spotless and quiet, with a great breakfast spread, but the real jewels are the staff. We have stayed in hotels in most major European cities and the Helmhaus staff are the best we've encountered. The leader of this wonderful group is Mario, or in our opinion, Super Mario! He does it all, knows everything...
