Glockenhof Zurich is a small boutique hotel situated in Sihlstrasse, a street very near the heart of Zurich and the famed Bahnhofstrasse. The hotel is often considered to be a preferred choice for individual travelers and those in town on business. The hotel has an excellent location, near wonderful restaurants, and shopping areas.

Glockenhof Zurich is very cute and aesthetically pleasing. The décor is very minimalistic yet provides a sense of comfort as well as class. The room was actually quite small, but it was an acceptable and normal size for Zurich standards. Despite that, the room was wonderful: we were lucky to have a garden view from our window and everything in our room worked perfectly.

The breakfast buffet is served in a room in the lobby. The breakfast is in the western style, particularly the Swiss-German style which featured both hot food as well as cold cuts. The breakfast was very healthy and very filling and was the highlight of my every morning. In addition, there is a small restaurant on the side of the hotel for meals during the day. It is an excellent place to catch up with friends over a cup of coffee or glass of red wine.

For a Swiss hotel of such optimal location, Glockenhof Zurich offers an excellent deal. It is incredibly difficult to find a good quality hotel in the Bahnhofstrasse area of such comparable prices. In order to find similar quality hotels would require a higher room rate per night in Zurich. The service in all aspects of the hotel was excellent. All members of the staff from housekeeping to the managers were well mannered, kind, and attentive. I felt very welcome in the hotel and never had a single problem with the service.

Glockenhof Zurich is a wonderful hotel and is located at the heart of Zurich. I hope to come back to Zurich soon, and when I do, I will be sure to stay again at Glockenhof Zurich. Overall, I highly recommend Glockenhof Zurich for all, especially individual travelers and those on business.

Room Tip: Rooms on higher floors have a better view of the garden.

The best part of this hotel is it’s location. It’s near Zurich HB, in Central Zurich so lots and lots of restaurants , eating places, cafes and shopping places around! Coop was near too! Our room was cosy but average (wish the tea cup plates were cleaner!), one had to ask for basics like cotton buds, moisturiser etc. The internet wouldn’t come in the room easily at times. When asked if we could have a late check out on payment , the hotel wanted us to pay for the full night or else take it only until 4 pm and not 6 pm as we wanted - it seemed the staff isn’t into smiling at all. The reception of guests is very depressing since the staff would have this serious look whenever a help is needed or a conversation happened. Strange! Why does it feel they are all so sad and serious! I thought people smile in the hospitality industry! Anyhow not much helpful. We enjoyed the stay since it was so central and we had ample places to go around so spending time in the hotel was technically for a sleep and nothing else ! ! The breakfast is average too. Probably a more business hotel than family!

Great location and beautiful hotel. Stayed 2 nights on our way to the Alps, couldn't have chosen a better hotel, in the center of everything. Great breakfast, good hotel restaurant and very clean room, especially the bathrooms. Had 2 rooms, one for us and another for our teenagers, would choose this hotel again.

The hotel is in a central location, just 10 min walk from the main train station in Zurich. Right next to the famous shopping street Bahnhofstrasse. Also about a 10-min walk to the Old Town. And basically walking distance to most things. From the main train station, it's a 12-minute ride to Zurich airport as well.

The room was a nice size, clean and comfortable. Nespresso machine in the room, and free bottles of water upon arrival. Nice breakfast buffet spread in the morning. Also, the hotel has a lovely bar and a pretty garden area as well. All in all, a great find. And also budget friendly overall for Zurich.
