I chose Helmhaus primarily for its proximity to the headquarters of the Swiss banks in Paradeplatz (it is a very scenic five minutes walk from Paradeplatz). Happily the hotel not only meets this criterion, but also has many other advantages. Chief among these are its location and the friendliness of the staff. Helmhaus is situated in the old town, close to just about all of Zurich's main points of interest for the curious visitor. For me, the main appeal of the area was the picturesque streets of the old town with their abundant restaurants and bars.
My room was very comfortable and had that rare quality of feeling like a home from home. It was incredibly quiet (perhaps too quiet for someone used to the noise of London - but that is hardly a criticism!). Breakfast was great - I tucked in to some lovely Swiss cheese and muesli.More
