My wife and I had a really good time there, every thing was perfect, so clean and great location. The staff were so nice and helpful. The airport shuttle was late for 20 minuets and the hotel offered us taxi and paid the extra fee for us.

Hotel Helmhaus was our introduction to Switzerland and it could not have been better. A warm welcome from the front desk and efficient sign in were just the start.
