We stayed only one night as we were passing through Zurich on our way back from Florence to the UK by train. The hotel is a pleasant 20 mins walk from the station and only 5 mins walk to the lake. Externally it's not in a pretty building but the interior is well kept and of a good standard although...

This hotel, by far, is the best value we have ever had in a European vacation. The hotel has a great location -- 2 blocks from the main high end shopping avenue; the lake, and the riverside (its a short walk across a bridge to the other river bank). It has all modern amenities including central ac which provided a...

Reviewed 30 August 2016

I've been staying at Glaernischhof for many years and only when I can't get a room tend to stay somewhere else but still prefer coming back as it's clean, quiet and a professionally run hotel that's perfect for downtime. The only thing I don't like is the perpetual turnover of staff in recent times.
