Editorial review:

This classy, old-world business hotel dates to 1844 and has perfect Swiss-German service in an excellent location on the Zurichsee. The cleanliness is remarkable and it's incredibly calm and quiet here. The rooms have nice furnishings, and the seasonal outdoor café was praised by guests. The only negative reviews were that it seemed a little drab and somewhat snobbish.

Verified Reviews:

  • Fantastic shower - Ac in our room worked well - Would definitely go back
  • Great breakfast - No plasma tv - Beautiful view of the lake
  • Staff is polite - Too expensive - Hotel was beautifully decorated
  • Rooms are big - Beds comfortable - Free wifi
  • Bathrooms were perfect - New furnishing - Lack of a swimming pool

                        I enjoyed my stay there & liked everything !

                        Location , lake view, garden & resturants.

                        The highly profesional response of all the staff in the hotel , the location and the comfortable stay that we had in the hotel.

                        Just gorgeous! But not snobbish. As Baur au Lac is located very close to the Lake Zurich and to the old town, we could enjoy the sight-seeing too.

                        We enjoyed breakfast at the Pavilion, also the outdoor cafe had a very nice ambiance.

                        The polite and efficient staff. The lake walks. This is the first hotel I stayed at that provided free mini bar, which is a great idea along with the free wifi. It does not make you feel you are being ripped off.

                        Breakfast was not served outdoors!

                        Staff efficiency and politeness most excellent.

                        The mini bar (although complimentary) was poorly stocked for a hotel of this calibre. The shower was never hotter than mildly warm, but I forgot to mention it to them. Bath and sink temp. were fine.

                        extremely cozy and stylish design in room and in the hotel facilities

                        No. If room rate could be less expensive.

                        the hotel is very nice, the breakfast is excellent. The price is a bit too high for accomadation.
