Hotel Helmhaus
Ranked #10 of 137 Hotels in Zurich
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 September 2011

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.

I only stayed there one night but the Hotel exceeded my expectations.
The staff at the reception was very friendly and professional and handled my requests very quickly. A Welcome drink was offered not only at check in but also when I arrived later to my room. the room and bathroom were very clean and modern furnished. The Wireless Internet was for free in the room what I think is a very unique selling point for the Hotel, it was not clear to me when I booked the room so I was very positive surprised when I got there. I did not have breakfast therefore I cannot judge this service. I would definitely recommend this hotel to my friends, not only locationwise but also for the service!.

We arrived with three children after a 20 hour flight from Australia. Our room was already available even though it was only 10 am. Rooms were lovely, staff were helpful and my children voted it the best breakfast ever.

I chose this hotel for its contempory furnishings as well as its excellent location in the old town. I was not disappointed when i arrived.
As a single mature female traveller I felt very safe not only in the hotel but in the surrounding streets. It was an added advantage that English was spoken by all the exceptionally helpful staff - nothing ever seemed too much bother.
The room was spacious, comfortable, clean and well appointed for the price. The breakfast was generous and delicious. It unexpectedly included a delicious cooked breakfast dish as well as the normal Swiss cold cut selections which I appreciated. Quality coffee was available at all times in the reception.
The Reception was very friendly and helpful as was the kitchen staff. As my departure flight was late at night, it was reassuring that I could wait in comfort at the hotel for my airport transfer.
The location of the Helmhause Hotel was amazing, just a short stroll across the road to the lake, an interesting 5 minute walk across the bridge to a morning market and 1 minute to bars and cafes in the old town. I would definately recommend it!

I wished I could have stayed here longer! All the staff at the Helmhaus were lovely and always helpful. The room was a great size and even had a couch to sit on in the room. The breakfast was delicious. Also the location was of the hotel close to the old town.
