Greulich Design & Lifestyle Hotel
Ranked #26 of 137 Hotels in Zurich
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 July 2012

We spent just one night in one of the standard rooms. The hotel is located in a quieter part of town which was exactly why we chose it. We liked the simple but modern room which had everything you need for one night.

Dinner at the restaurant was excellent and we liked their new concept called "Small Plates". The plates were not as small as we expected, though. We absolutely had no room for dessert, unfortunately. Next time, we're going to order less... Price is as high as you'd expect it in Zurich in a good location. Very good choice of wines, many also by the glass which is definitely a plusfactor.

The next morning we decided to treat ourselves to a nice, long breakfast. For the considerably high price of Swiss Francs 26 per person the buffet was nothing special. It was ok, but bread, cheese, cold meat, juice etc. were just very ordinary items. A bit disappointing...

Next time we come to Zurich, the Greulich will be our choice again, but maybe with just a cup of coffee in the morning.

We spent 2 nights in the hotel and really enjoyed our stay. Rooms are modern and minimilistic with nice little extras. The hotel staff were extremely friendly and service very good. We rarely eat dinner in hotels but thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience and their concept of 'small plates' is excellent. The wines by the glass were also very good. They use quality produce and my only comment would be that eggs could be added to the breakfast buffet. We used the hotel bikes which was fun and we would definitely return to this hotel. They are also extremely dog friendly which is important to us.

I stayed in one of the chalets at the back of the hotel, it was nicely laid out if a little sterile feeling with all the concrete and frosted glass. The hotel staff were excellent and willing to help whenever they could. We had dinner in the hotel restaurant which was excellent and again the staff were very professional and friendly.

It was my first time to the city and to the country and after battling the confusing Zurich HB, I arrived in this hotel with a smile. Greeted by a very friendly lady who checked me in and upgraded me to the Suites from the original superior room I booked.

The room: It was bright and divided into 4 sections of kitchen (electric stove, coffee machine, fridge, cutlery, etc), living room (dining table, TV, sofa, Chairs, Work-desk, iPod dock), bedroom and bathroom (with bath-tub), also, a huge sheep doll. The room was of a high quality with a simple minimalistic design and of course, very clean. Bed couldn't be more comfortable and windows cover the bedroom from the kitchen all the way to the bedroom making the room bright and airy!

The service: I found all staffs (checked-in and our and in the restaurant) were all professionally trained and very friendly. Services were all accompanied with a smile, can't fault them on this sector.

The Food: had both lunch and dinner in the restaurant, healthy food that comes in a right portion! Tasty and at a reasonable price. Breakfast selection was fine with all the essential (fruits, yoghurt, cereals, cheese, eggs and breads).

The Location: was centrally located as my friend and I managed to walk around central Zurich, 20 - 30 minutes walk from Zurich HB and surrounded by a nice neighbourhood.

All in all: First hotel I stayed in Zurich and it won't be the last, will definitely stay there again!
Special thanks for the lady who checked me in on 7th June 2012 around 1PM.

Just cool. Superior Room- #1. Yoga mat! Tivoli radio, xess + baba throw! shower and tub, electric windows and shades. Dreamy bed. One night wasn't enough... the front desk service was exceptional! Small plates of delightful creative food from the restaurant were above my expectations. Bravo to the inspired young chefs of Zurich!! 10
