I was looking for someplace special to stay for this holiday to be a romantic getaway as well as a city break, a hotel with old-fashioned European grand hotel charm, and Baur au Lac turned out to be perfect! The decor, the look and feel of the hotel, the service and attitude of staff were all exceptional! Very good quality breakfast buffet with eggs/french toast/pancakes cooked to order and (again!) exceptional service in a beautiful dining room with views of garden and lake Zurich. Double room is good size with a very large bed, desk and coffee table with 2 chairs, lovely spacious bathroom: large bathtub, double sink, heated floor. We had a canal view room so with a balcony from the room and a window in the bathroom - lots of natural light!
Location is great - right on the lake Zurich, at the end of Bahnoffstrasse, within easy reach of train station (15-20 mins walking) and old town. Perfect access to shopping and sightseeing in and outside of Zurich!
Overall, an amazing stay with no complaints at all! Would definitely stay here again and recommend it! Of course, it will cost you a good deal of money to stay here but you get what you pay for so I consider this good value for money spent!More
