Baur au Lac, Zurich
Incredible hotel!
We absolutely loved our stay at the Baur Au Lac! The staff were extremely attentive and helpful, the room incredibly spacious, and the location perfect (easy to get to everything by foot). Having a fully stocked mini bar (replenished each day) at no additional cost was a great touch. The stay is worth the splurge!

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.
