The hotel more than exceeded its lofty reputation. We were upgraded to premier rooms which were exquisitely furnished, spotlessly clean and with all the modern technologies. Public rooms & restaurants were also spectacular. However, even better than the facilities was the service. Some of the reviews was that service was sometimes a little "snooty". What we saw was extremely friendly...

The Baur au lake overlooking the lake is the grandest of the old palace hotels. The room has been given contemporary twists oversized photographs and original art works swirly carpets and padded leather headboard for the bed. The lobby bar and the light flooded Pavillon restaurant are glorious. The brand-new restaurant Rive Gauche just off the main bar is contemporary...

I like Zurich I travel there quite often, so I stayed in many hotels in Zurich. But during the last three visits I have been staying in Baur Au Lac, and I can say that it is the best place to stay. The service is impeccable. From the moment you enter the hotel until the moment you check out everything...

There is type of Swiss understatement that i find unique: being stellar and reliable without any need of showing off. No Swiss institution embodies this virtue more than Baur-au-Lac. As long as I can travel, I will recommend and return to this marvelous hotel.

This is definitely a classic. Unfortunately, rooms enjoy a very limited view. Most of a inside, "industrial" courtyard or of surroundings by buildings. If you choose a room, get one overlooking the creek. Service is old school excellent, arguably the best in Zurich. The food is ok, pavilion restaurant is very well versed in culinary technique. Front desk and bell...

This is a beautiful property with an elegant decor. From the moment I arrived at the property, the members of the staff were extremely attentive and accommodating. Throughout my stay, the service was impeccable. My room was absolutely lovely and very comfortable, although a bit small. It was elegantly appointed and the layout optimized every inch of the relatively small...

If you are spending any time at all in Zurich, this should be your spot. From the outside arrival to the final wave goodbye, every interaction with the staff does not disappoint.

My main disappointment with Baur au Lac is that I'd booked from seeing pictures of the Pavilion & accompanying terrace. The Pavilion was closed during my stay and the terrace un-serviced. It's also a hotel you have to get used to as all the doors are unmarked and you have to get an idea where everything is or keep on...

We spent one night at the hotel which is indeed very nice and has a very profesional concierge. We appreciated the welcome chocolate in our room and the very nice room and bathroom. Breakfast offer can be improved. We were a little upset because we asked to have a room with a lake view but this was not the case.👍👍🏼👍

This hotel was excellent. The ambiance and the rooms are beautiful. The staff was wonderful and very accommodating. I had to leave at 5:30am to make the train and they even prepared breakfast for me to take along. They were professional and helpful with everything I needed. I highly recommend this beautiful hotel.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Baur au Lac has the discerning tastes of its guests to thank for the leading position it has maintained for more than 170 years in the international luxury hotel industry. Set in its own park, the hotel enjoys a unique location overlooking the lake and the Alps - and yet is still but a few minutes' walk from the Paradeplatz financial district and the Bahnhofstrasse, Zurich's celebrated shopping high street. While offering the ultimate in comfort and privacy, the rooms and suites have been equipped with every, yet hardly noticeable technical refinement. The large marble bathrooms with heated floor and daylight match up to the highest demands of comfort, design and equipment. ... more   less
