"Awesome!!!"
Having been to Zurichwe loved our stay at Hotel Glockenhif. The hotel is centrally located near Bahnhofstrass shopping district and the historic and cultural areas if Zurich. The rooms were pretty big for the price, especially in Zurich. The hotel staff was really helpful!!!! We enjoyed our stay and would definitely stary here next time as well

"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…

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.

"Only if you don't want any sleep!"
We stayed Saturday and Sunday night. Unfortunately the night club across the road had "bang bang" music going till 5.00am both nights. We booked a king room only to arrive and find out it was a king single. The manager offered to up grade us for the bargain price of another 69 chf per night, apparently half price. It's a shame because otherwise in a great location and a really nice hotel.

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.

"Great hotel, good value, but.."
12/27/15 holidaykh_fan London
I was impressed with the hotel for the value I got, the staff were great and Zurich is a beautiful city to visit. However I had an issue with the air con in my room! It had mind of is own and wouldn't turn off, even when the keycard was taken out of the door! Just be wary of you are a light sleeper. The food at the restaurant is great by the way. Push to get a bigger room with larger windows.

"Within walking distance of Zurich main attractions"
12/26/15 KobieMarie Pretoria, South Africa
Excellent location in Sihlstrasse, within walking distance from Bahnhofstrasse and the trams. The rooms are minimistically decorated, coffee/tea station in the room, as well as a mini bar. The breakfast buffet is excellent with a wide variety of fruit, pastries, cheese and hot buffet. The concierge desk was very helpful in planning our day trips and the staff in general were friendly and helpful. Special thank you to the hotel management for arranging birthday surprise for my son at breakfast. Great idea to buy Zurich pass to give you access to trams, cruise on the lake and the train to Uetliberg.

"Very good "
12/13/15
Centrally located, less than ten minute walk from main train station. All main attractions about 30 min walks, less by tram. Hotel staff friendly and attentive. Room clean and modern. Morning buffet breakfast good and varied. Dinner at restaurant was good, prices comparable to others in the area which are on the high side but Zurich is not cheap so that seems the norm.

"Great Location and friendly Staff"
12/11/15 Mukesh M Pune,India
Stayed at Hotel Glockenhof at the recommendation of a local business associate as it was our first trip to Zurich. The location of the hotel is outstanding, just meters away from the main shopping street the Bahnhofstrasse, a minute away from the tram station,and a six minute walk from the main rail station. Restaurants all around. The staff is courteous and friendly ( although I was inadvertently given the wrong direction of the tram and had a 30 minute round trip instead of a 15 minute one). The rooms are good for a European hotel and well appointed. In typical Swiss fashion though, we had to pay for an upgrade as the price of an early check in as we arrived after an 11 hour flight at 8 am !! Also the faucets give hot water only at high flow, which was a bit disconcerting.The breakfast is wholesome with a good variety. Overall a good experience. We will stay here again.

Great hotel, just off the Bahnhoffstrasse, 10 mins walk from the main Zurich station and 2 mins to COOP. Modern decor, excellent bathroom and very well insulated against the street noise. Lovely bed, very comfy.

"Falsely advertised king bed is actually only a twin"
11/22/15 Nickcom
I left this hotel with very few positives when considering the price paid. Aside from the convenient downtown location which in part demands the high price, the rest of the hotel didn't deliver. The rooms are recently renovated yet done so in a cheap fashion that doesn't bode well with the price or star rating the hotel commands. The bathroom had no extractor vent or windows and the paint was already peeling above the shower as a result, and any odors (heaven forbid) from the bathroom will have nowhere to escape. However the real clincher for why I will never recommend this hotel is because I booked and paid for a king bed - I decided to stay here over other alternatives solely because I wanted a king bed after having spent a number of previous nights at other hotels on single beds. However upon arriving at the room I discovered not a king bed but a twin (i.e. a wider-than-normal single bed - two people would not be able to fit comfortably). When I called reception they said that this was indeed a king sized bed and I was mistaken. I later saw on their website they have a "king bed" for 1 person and a "king bed" for 2 people which are of different widths. As far as I am concerned a king size bed is a king size bed - it would comfortably fit 2 people and can't be of a different width based on how many people are booked for the room. Therefore I didn't get what I paid for which drops this hotel from 4 to 2 circles in my books.

"Very little services but clean and modern "
11/05/15 Sean G New York
This hotel is clean, has modern rooms and consistent wifi. It does not have a gym, or pool, and the laundry service takes over 24 hours. So if you just need the very basic's this is a good option, if you need to dry clean your suit fast your out of luck, if you want to work out you have to run outside which was very nice down by the lake but I am sure during the winter that is not as nice of an option! :) It's 3.5 star facility, but 1.5 star services and amenities.

"Overpriced, but good location"
10/28/15 kasalla Honolulu, Hawaii
The receptionist bragged about the newly renovated room and how great it is. It wasn´t very big and it still smelled like paint. Not very pleasant to stay in. But at least you are close to Bahnhofstrasse and the train station.

"A Central Hotel"
10/23/15 Lameesaa
I stayed there for 3 nights but had 2 bookings one for an economy room and one for the standard double room, because I made some changes to my reservation and couldn't get the same room for the whole period, so the staff at the reception were very helpful and thankfully upgraded the rest of the reservation to the standard double room. They also offered us a room on a higher floor facing the backyard as requested to avoid any street noise. The breakfast was very good with variety of food, and the staff at the restaurant were friendly. The location of the hotel is excellent just in the center of the main shopping streets and within few minutes from the main train station. The rooms were clean, modern and renovated but they are small as well as the toilet. Hearing the foot steps from the upper neighbors was annoying as well as having 2 twin beds pushed together as a double bed!

I spent 3days in this hotel. My room was very small,but everything worked.The location is excellent, 5 minute walk to the Central Station,close to tram lines and shopping. The breakfast was good and varied. The garden is very pleasant in good weather, for a drink or food. Service good and fast.
