    The staff were particularly friendly, accomodating, and knowledgeable. Their restaurant recommendations were excellent. the location was convenient for walking lakeside, old town, and Bahnhofstrasse. Rooms were quiet.

    Hotel is situated within old town, all attractions/places are easily reached by foot. Pleasant personal and qood quality service accurately meets all our expectations. Hotel street corner location and limitation of a whole old town view from the windows is completely compensated by room square and room equipment.

    This was my third visit to the Helmhaus. Every aspect of the Helmhaus is excellent. The staff is genuinely welcoming, very responsive to requests and, above all, highly professional. The rooms are clean, spacious, comfortable and everything always works. The breakfast is always a wide range of high-quality product, beautifully prepared. And the location, for me, is perfect...essentially in the Altstadt, on S-Bahn line, but also only a 10 minute walk from everything, including the Hbf.

    Fabulous

    Close to the hot spots in Zurich, in between main train station and Hip Calatrava designed station Stadelhofen, close to the lake and vivid Bellevue place, Opera and en vogue dining area Niederdorf. Nice & cosy Design hotel with well furnished but small rooms, boutique hotel style. Definetively recommendable.

    Very good

    The location was really great, within walking distance to everything! About 10 min from the main train station, or a couple of minutes with the tram. The staff was also really helpful and service minded.

    The breakfast could've been better.

    Superb

    We enjoyed our stay at this nice boutique hotel. It's located in a very convenient location for sightseeing. Our room was nicely appointed, comfortable and clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. The included breakfast was excellent with a great selection. They seem to have put a lot of thought into details to make one's stay as comfortable as possible. The free wifi was also a plus.

    The bathroom, while lovely and renovated, was very small.

    The staff were wonderful, very polite and helpfull, during check-in they offered a glass of wine, at the little cosy lobby it was always possible to make your own coffee. The location of the hotel marvellous. The room we stayed was the "superior" room and very big and well decorated and furnished and very clean, breakfast was very good (the food quality), only migtht have a little more varietes of cheese, egg etc.. Having free internet is a plus also.... we would like to go back definitely and will recomend to friends visiting zurich...

    The location was perfect on the right bank and next to the lake. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The atmosphere was calm and quiet and the breakfast was varied .The room was a reasonable size and had evrythink I wanted.

    The walls are quite thin and some neighbours were not as quiet as they might have been.

    Superb

    Friendly and attentive staff, great location in old section of city loaded with shops and restaurants nearby, smaller number of rooms. Nice breakfast included.

    Wooden floors of botique hotel transfered all footsteps loudly from above floors. Beds a bit too hard for wife.

    The quality of this hotel is largely accounted for by the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. Nothing was too much trouble and everything was done with a smile. Excellent breakfasts, a spotlessly clean room and a great location made our stay a pleasure.
