              Excellent location and friendly staff

              Fairly costly for facilities offered but hotels are expensive in general in Zurich in busy periods

              • Average rating
            • Older travelers

              Great location, near the city center and the old town, in front of the lake. Very attentive and helpful staff - they do everything to make your stay comfortable. Wifi internet available (I payed 25 Euros for 3 days).

              Poor and expensive breakfast (from 25 to 35 Euros per person); rooms need renovation (they have an 80´s look); beds are not king size (not acceptable for such an expensive hotel). The quality of the hotel is not compatible with the price paid.

              The location overlooking the lake, as well as being central to the old town. Comfortable bed and well insulated, quiet room

            • Older travelers

              The staff were probably the most courteous and helpful staff I have had the pleasure to meet in the last ten years of extensive travelling. Really nothing was too much trouble and they were full of useful advice as the weekend took place over a National holiday. The room was very nice and quiet and we had a lovely view over the Lake, which was so relaxing.

              The staff were so very friendly and spoke perfect English and were always happy to explain certain customs so we would better understand how to get around the city. They gave great instructions for getting around the old town of Zurich and it is truly a beautiful historical city. We loved the churches (and the church bells) the lake front, the river cruise and Cafe Felix (best hot fudge sundae ever). The shops and restaurants in the old quarter were quaint and friendly too.

              Everything was perfect but we did forget to put our Do not disturb sign up one afternoon and the housekeeper walked in on us . . . sleeping (thank goodness :-)! No harm done and she was truly apologetic.

              Location, on the lake and close to the business area and old town

              This time I was unlucky to receive a room which could use a refit and which had a view over the courtyard i/o lake. Not worth the money and next time I will consider to stay here only if they give me a better room

              Spa is nice. View of the Lake in Zurich is excellent. The location is good - though off the main area - only a short walk. Though we did not have breakfast this time - the last time it was superb at the hotel.

              The room was much smaller than the last time we stayed there. In addition, the last time we had wonderful Viener Workshtadt style furniture. This time the furniture was not as nice and was more akin to older hotel furniture.

              We stayed in lake view room - view was wonderful. The areas is very quite and beautiful. Straff is friendly.

            • Older travelers

              Excellent value for money and perfect location! The lake-facing room was very comfortable with a beautiful view and we liked the layout of the bathroom, separate wc and plenty of hanging/drawer space. Our room had minimalist glass-tiled furniture and wooden flooring. Double bed with 2 duvets in typical Swiss style. Reception staff were very helpful, in particular the Reservations Manager Alexander Gibb. Modern but very small reception/lobby area that was mostly deserted.The bar and the dining room looked very welcoming. Lovely sauna (heated on request) with small rest area. Steigenberger Hotels are of a consistently high standard. Would stay here again if room rate as attractive.

              A hotel of this calibre should offer free wifi.

              intelligent room design; very practical. Enough possibilities fro your (elec) plugs, space enough... again very practical.

              old fashioned; lot of older people / directly to the road (noise)

              I found the staff to be very helpful. The hotel was ideal for a business trip

              The restaurant menu was a little over adventurous for the clientele. More standard fare would have been appropriate.
