Having stayed at the Baur au Lac at least 30 times in the past 30 years, the latest being January 2017, I can safely say that the Baur au Lac runs with the effortless perfection of a fine Swiss watch. Everything, but everything, always works beautifully. The staff can't do enough. The food in its Rive Gauche Restaurant is outstanding,...

This was my first time in Zurich and did not know what to expect. I had booked this hotel after reading a number of reviews which said the hotel was excellent. Upon arriving at the hotel I was not disappointed, this has to be hands down one of the best hotels I have stayed in anywhere. From the moment we...

Baur au Lac has an excellent location, beautiful rooms, and delicious food, but the service is what makes the experience so memorable. The staff really cares about making your stay special, and everyone we encountered was kind, helpful, and friendly. Try to book a room on the river - it is much quieter than the street side of the hotel,...

Beautifully located on Lake Zurich as well as the famous Bahnhofstrasse. A recently renovated hotel that always confirmed the hospitality of its hosts. The best of all were the concierge team members who relentlessly endeavored to make my family's vacation a memorable one.

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
