Hotel Helmhaus
Ranked #10 of 137 Hotels in Zurich
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 August 2012

On arrival we received a complimentary glass of wine which set the tone of the service. The staff were very helpful. Just be warned that it is a small hotel. The elevator barely fit the two of us and two suitcases. The breakfast buffet was limited but sufficient and well prepared. There is no coffee or tea in the room, but there is coffee in the lobby. The location is perfect for walking all around old Zurich. It is not suitable if you have mobility problems. We recommend Helmhaus for your Zurich adventure.

Thank you for having been our guests and for taking the time to share your opinion about your stay with us. It is nice to read that you appreciated the helpfulness of our team members as well as the location of our hotel. Being a historical building from the 14th century and located in the heart of oldtown brings its restrictions in internal modernisation, such as the size of the lift.
We do offer tea set ups which our team is more than happy to provide in the rooms upon request.

We wish you all the best and thank you for recommending the smallest and most centrally located Four Star hotel of Zurich.

Your Helmhaus Management Team.

We loved this hotel - great location, friendly staff that greeted us with a cold drink on a very warm day, clean rooms (great airconditioning), perfect location and a small lovely breakfast. The front desk team was always helpful and attentive. Like all hotels in Switzerland, this isn't an inexpensive option but they provide value.

The Helmhaus is located just steps off the tram line from the Hauptbahnhof in an old part of the city with lots of neaby restaurants of all types and prices. The hotel is small but the rooms are modern, very clean and completely quiet. Breakfasts include all the hams, cheeses, and breads you would expect. We really enjoyed staying here because it was literally steps from the lakeshore, Grossmunster and Frauenkirch and you could walk to anyplace else most tourists would want to get to in Zurich. A great place to stay.

We appreciate your taking the time to share your thoughts about your stay with other travellers and us.
That you valued all our Hotel Helmhaus had to offer, i.e. our hearty Swiss breakfast buffet as well as location and the rooms, shows us that with our credo „Quality, not quantity“ we are on the right way. Also several renovations in the past five years contribute to the fact that our guests can today expect and enjoy the comfort Swiss hospitality promises.
We wish you all the best and look forward to welcome you back to the smallest and most centrally located Four-Star hotels of Zurich.

Your Helmhaus Management Team.

Excellent hotel, very convenient. Very cozy and where they have taken care of every detail. Great facilities for participants in the Zurich Ironman. We even opened the kitchen for breakfast at 5 o'clock. in the morning. Very pleased and highly recommended.

Thank you and your party for having stayed with us. We hope you had a good trip back home and could relax from the strains of your participation in the Zurich Ironman.
It is important for us to take good care of participants of such sport events so they can fully concentrate on the competition. It is nice to know that we could please you with our efforts.

We wish you all the best and look forward to welcome you back for the next Zurich Ironman.
