    Wonderful & stylish place in Zürich

    We arrived (very!) early — a family of 4 — for a two night stay at the Helmhaus. We had traveled to Zurich from New York and arrived at the hotel at 9a and were greeted very warmly by the super kind and amiable person at the front desk who noted that while only one of our two rooms was available (since we were there way in advance of the normal checkin time) we were welcome to squeeze into that 1 room. Which we did VERY gratefully — took a long nap and woke up ready to explore Zurich. The Hotel is in a fabulous location right in the old town — with a/c and double-panes windows that ensure comfort and quiet (since it’s a lively part of town); the staff is very friendly; the rooms are stylish and super clean; the breakfast was wonderfully generous and tasty— in short, this is a great find! We loved Zürich and the Helmhaus and will return ASAP.

    All in all a nice hotel in the middle of the city. Everything was fine. Just check the invoice later on. They billed the Minibar even though there was an explicit writing, that the Minibar (non alcoholic) was inclusive. The staff is friendly. The pricing structure for breakfast is kind of strange though. They bill the eggs depending on their mood I guess:) no parking available. You need to use public parking. Good hotel, great staff, just check the bill thoroughly at the end.

    The staff was very friendly, professional and knowledgeable. The breakfast was excellent. I did not need to eat breakfast at any other establishment. They had breads, eggs,bacon, charcuterie, cereal coffee cappuccino.Several different jams, jellies and cheese spreads. It was wonderful. Eugene was always welcoming and very happy to see us. The room was also very nice. I had the corner room and you could view the river from it. The room was larger than most rooms in Europe. I was traveling with to other people and we would meet in my room to plan the day. I would definitely stay here again.
