Reviewed 9 August 2017

Had a wonderful experience, and staff was very helpful. Tons of shopping and eating within walking distance. Front desk booked our excursion for us while we went out to eat dinner. Hotel doesn't offer parking but the preferred parking station is a short walk.(Parkhous Promenade via Hirschengraben) I wish I knew this ahead of time because I drove down a pedestrian only street near the hotel and got a ticket. FYI, the Polizia request payment on the spot for tickets so hopefully this review can help prevent a future ticket!

Stayed here for a long weekend. Perfectly located in the old town of Zurich, it is in the center between lots of restaurants, close to the lake.
Great service, very nice room, good breakfast and felt right at home from the moment we walked in.

Room Tip: ask for higher up (quieter)

Thank you for having been our guest and for appreciating our location, the comfort of the room as well as the service provided.
Just last year we have added to each room larger HD tv screens with 160 national and international radio and tv channels and easy-to-use touchpads with free-of-charge internet access, international and national newspapers and magazines. And our tasty Swiss breakfast buffet comes with hot and cold, mostly Swiss delicacies from local farmers and companies, partially self-made.
It is a pleasure to read that you experienced the “home away from home” feeling we want to give to each of our guests, and we hope will see you again in the future. And by booking directly on our homepage returning guests will receive a reduction on our daily rates. The promotional code for this we are happy to provide upon request.

We wish you all the best. Your Helmhaus Management Team.

Thank you for having been guest to the Hotel Helmhaus and for sharing your positive opinion with other travelers and us. It is nice to read that you so positively remember the friendliness of our team members as well as the delicious Swiss breakfast buffet. For our Swiss breakfast we offer to our guests mostly Swiss and regional products of high quality so they can get a taste of Swiss specialities.
And extensive renovations and investments over the past years, i.e. easy-to-use touchpads in each room, large HD-tv screens, sound-proof windows and hygienic hard wooden floors are intended to make our guests’ stays even more comfortable.

We wish you all the best! Your Helmhaus Management Team.

We stayed for 3 nights recently and were very pleased with our stay. Magie greeted us with a glass of delicious white wine and checked us in quickly. Our room was very nice with plenty of space. A big treat was the shower in the bathroom...no tub to contend with!!
Breakfast was very good. The location is excellent and we were able to walk to most places. The real treat was the staff, always willing to help with directions, reservations, restaurant suggestions and advice. Marie was especially helpful. We would certainly stay here again.

Thank you for your 3 nights' stay at the smallest and most centrally located 4-Star hotel in Zürich. It is a pleasure to learn that we could convince you with the “home away from home”-feeling we want to provide for our guests. Especially the friendliness of the team is a factor which makes a big difference and which is an important factor for most guests.
Your special compliment about our colleague Magie has been duly shared with her.
It would be a pleasure to be your host again for your next stay, and for returning guests we offer a reduction for reservations on our homepage. The promotion code we are happy to provide upon request.

We wish you all the best and we look forward to seeing you again in the future! Your Helmhaus Management Team.

The welcoming was warm and helpful. We got all the information we needed, for a two days stay.
The room was very good, breakfast as well and the location - excellent. A few meters to the old city and nice boutiques. We will come again.
