"Nice, well located, and comfortable hotel"
I had a very positive experience at the Glockenhof hotel. The room was comfortable and the staff helpful. The complementary breakfast was sufficient. The coffee maker in my room was truly appreciated. I had no issues with the free wifi. The Glockenhof Hotel compares favorably with the 5 or 6 other hotels in Zurich that I am familiar with. I can comfortably recommend this hotel for a business or vacation stay in Zurich. One word of caution, my room had the very large window between the bathroom and the main room. I thought it was nice, but I’m not sure I would want to share the room…

"Excellent location and value"
Not the first time I've stayed here and will certainly be coming back. Rooms are up to date, service is good and that's all one needs. Good value (in Zurich terms) for what you pay.

Foi uma excelente experiência morar no hotel Glockenhof. Muito confortável e acolhedor, localizado em região central a privilegiada. O pátio interno onde funciona um restaurante ao ar livre é muito bonito.

Rymligt, smakfullt renoverat och rent rum. De gemensamma utrymmena såg äldre ut. Frukosten var tråkig trots att det var en buffé. Ligger centralt och bra.

normal, demasiado caro para lo que es. el baño es horrible, hay un hueco en la puerta lo que te deja la intimidad cero ( un diseño horrible), se les olvido dejar las toallas en la habitación, la maquina de cafe no funcionaba. El desayuno esta bien y la situación del hotel también, cerca de la estación de tren, pero por lo general no lo recomendaría y no volvería a reservarlo.

"Convenient location and great value for Zurich"
07/20/15 2SLOTRAVELER California
We feel this is an ideal hotel for Zurich – it's convenient, not overly pricy, and is rather classy. Located just one block from Bahnhofstrasse with all its glitter and the trams, Hotel Glockenhof is an eight minute walk from the main train station (slightly uphill going to the hotel) and about 15 minutes to the Limmat River and the lake. For us, it was a perfect location for visiting most of Zurich's points of interest. Our room, 302, was very quiet and overlooked the inner courtyard. We learned that some rooms have a terrace (not ours) and suspect those that face the street may be noisy. The room was not spacious but didn't feel cramped thanks to smart design and efficient use of limited space. Temperature control was quiet and effective and the European-style manually adjustable bed was super comfortable. Along with tea making facilities our room had a Nespresso coffee machine for that early morning caffeine jolt. Room service was superb with evening turn down and replenished towels if needed. The classy ground floor breakfast room has a far better than average buffet, cooked to order items, and superb coffee – all with great table service in an elegant setting. For those familiar with the Best Western lodging group, especially in the United States, this property is branded as Best Western Premier and is a very significant step up from US standards to perhaps 4 star level. Our long weekend package had an attractive reduced rate, a 20% off coupon for the hotel's restaurant, and a round of complimentary drinks at the bar. Considering the hotel's convenient location and the generally steep price of a room in Zurich we consider this a very good value.

I highly recommend this hotel which is just next to the main shopping street Bahnhofstrasse with lots of nice restaurants. We arrived just after 8 a.m and were checked in within 30 minutes while enjoying a free drink.Staff were extremely helpful amd efficient in recommending restaurants, arranging transport etc. Rooms were newly refurbished,bright, clean and spacious.The airconditioning, bed and other furnishings were excellent.

Have stayed here several times. Great position in centre of Zurich. Staff always very attentive and friendly. Restaurant and bar good and breakfast included. Pricey but not over the top for Switzerland. Internet in rooms good.

It was like a bad monty Python sketch - I took a napkin and roll out of the breakfast area and was screamed it several times by a waitress accussing me of a form of theft The other members of staff lacking leadership look on in horror but did little to help. I never got the appropriate apology but credit to the front desk they tried to their best. Manager needs to up his game Great location but overly expensive add ons and thought the rooms pretty basic for the price (thin walls) but impressive housekeeping

Heated tiles in the bathroom floor? Elegant bedding and linens? Yes and yes. And you get champagne at the exquisite breakfast included in the morning, with a great array of food choices. Very friendly concierge. Great location to city center.

"Friendly Reception, Nice breakfast, Internet Slow"
07/08/15 lee O Portland, Oregon
Staff at the reception weere friendly and helpful. Breakfast buffet is good. The Swiss cheeses were all very nice. Nice latte! good location - 8 mins walk from the Main Train Station. Also nice that our room came with free interent. The not so good - -internet is really really really slow in the room. Clicked on a url,, wait, wait and kept waiting. I gave up!. We arrived on a super hot day in Zurich (94F or 37C), the AC was just not strong enough anywhere in the hotel to cool down. If you dont like heat, then you are in for a 24 hours sauna>

"Situated off Bahnhofstrasse in quiet street"
07/07/15 VisitorT Spain
Within very easy walking distance from the main train station. The room 101, was facing the inner courtyard, smallish with a double sized bed, although advertised as king sized bed 140cm, which reception advised we could upgrade for 60CHF, but as I felt the room was pricey enough we did not upgrade. The air conditioning was very welcome on such a hot weekend. Room was clean, coffee machine, sufficiently large wardrobe and bathroom. Breakfast was a good selection of food, tea and coffee brought to the table. But with the main door to the hotel permanently open and the door open to the outer inner courtyard, the effects of the air-conditioning were lost, and room was slightly uncomfortably warm. All the main tourist attractions are within easy walking distance of the hotel and there is a tram stop on the main street just metres from the hotel. I liked the fact that you did not need to enter a password to access the wifi each time.

"As good second time around ..."
07/02/15 BugLet England
We stayed at the Hotel Glockenhof again recently, and thankfully it was every bit as good as the first time with reliable, free internet; bowls of apples; a voucher for a free drink etc. Our stay also included the same niggle as our last review! The breakfast buffet was good, but guests were picking food up with their hands for themselves and their children, some of the plates were empty suggesting it was understaffed. Despite that, we like this hotel and would have no hesitation in staying there again.

"Charming place in the heart of the city "
07/02/15 Shwetha S
The hotel is located just off the main shopping area, Bahnoffstrasse. The areas of interest are within walking distance too. Just across the river is the quaint old town, and the old church of Grossmunster. You can get to the hotel from the train station by walk, even with luggage in about ten minutes. The lake can be visited on foot too. This property itself is very nice, and don't go by the size of the front office. The rooms are clean and spacious. There's a charming little garden restaurant and a cafe facing the road , which serves lovely hot chocolate among other things. There's a restaurant called Hiltl right across the street which is entirely vegetarian , which was a delight for us since we are vegetarian too. Nevertheless, it seemed to be popular with everybody. I'm thankful to the hotel for obliging us with an early check in as we had landed early that morning after an overnight train journey. Special mention to N. Wehrle for making our stay pleasant.
