My wife and I visited Zürich for just one night and enjoyed staying at Hotel Helmhaus very much. We were greeted with a delicious glass of wine. The location is great (close to lake Zürich, train station and city center). The breakfast was very good, the room spacious and very clean. I found the iPad in each room a great...

This is a great spot for an overnight in Zurich. Great value for the CHf. Upon arrival they served us a local Zurich white wine. Perfect way to start. Spotless, smallish room with petit bathroom...but well planned. Spectacular buffet breakfast included with a charming hostess serving. Will stay overnight on our way back through. Ask for a within walking distance...

A great little hotel, centrally located in Zurich. Easy access to everything. Staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast delicious! Room and bathroom decent size. Nicely decorated. No gym but with plenty of walking in Zurich not needed. Front rooms can be noisy at night with window open but solved by shutting window. Will stay there again when next in Zurich...

We have stayed at several hotels in Zurich over the years and this is one of the better ones. Zurich is a small city so it is within easy walking distance of the centre and only 30 minutes from the airport via train to the main station and walking from there. It is also only a 5 minute walk to...

Excellent location, in center of the oldest part of city, with many interesting shops, restaurants, and cafes. The place and staff are small, but they pay every attention to detail and are very pleasant and always smiling. The rooms are regular "European" size, clean, with very nice recently renovated bathrooms. I thoroughly enjoyed my 3-day stay, and would return to...

The hotel is a short tramride from Zurich's main railway station ,made easier by the fact tramtickets can be purchased by credit card at the tram stop. Reception was efficent and pleasant whilst the welcoming drink was an added bonus. The room was of a good size and comfortable. Being in the heart of the old town there were numerous...

A small hotel with larger than normal rooms in the middle of the Old Town. A 15 minute walk to the train station, multiple restaurants in the neighborhood, along with the river, the churches and the shops. Great breakfast, full Swiss with sausage, eggs, fruit, cheese, etc. in the morning to get you on your way. The staff are wonderful;...

Booked this hotel as part of a business trip - as soon as we arrived at Reception, you forgot you were on business and felt almost holiday-like. We partook of a small, complimentary strawberry wine, which was quite delicious and that set the tone in terms of friendliness, helpfulness, cleanliness - I really have absolutely no complaints and I do...

Hotel Helmhaus is a very small hotel but it is very cozy. Great service. Upon arriving, I was asked if I wanted a drink, and when it rained, I was asked if I needed an umbrella. To get to the hotel, either take a 20 min walk or streetcar 4 from Zurich station. The station is very well sign-posted so...
