Baur au Lac, Zurich
Very Good8.0
Very nice, but expensive for what you get
Terrific service in a nice old hotel. My issue with the place is that it is a lot of money for a retrofit space. The bathroom is large, but poorly laid out with several functional challenges. You have to awkwardly climb into a tub in order to take a shower and water gets everywhere. That is a good example of what I mean by retrofit. In a top dollar place it is annoying.
