Guest reviews

    I like the service. The first room I got was small so I complained and I was willing to pay more for a bigger room but they moved me to a bigger and comfortable room without charging.

    No lobby downstairs

  • Single
    9.6

    Very convinient hotel (both in terms of location and facilities). It has almost everything normal traveller needs. With high probability I would stay there again.

    Really minor: I would prefer more options for breakfast; the ring from the church nearby

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable, neat and clean. We liked the minimalist, tasteful style. Breakfast was delicious. The Helmhaus is very well located for exploring the old center of Zurich.

    Convenient location, high standars, reasonable price.

    Due to location, no outlook, but in context, not an issue.

    The location is excellent - close to everything (including Niederdorf that is just a 5-minute walk away) but reasonably quiet and secluded. The breakfast is excellent.

  • Couple
    9.2

    The location of the hotel is excellent. The room was clean and the staff is also excellent.

    Curved ceiling of the room was that you should exercise caution as especially on the fifth floor.

  • Group of friends
    9.6

    Very good location, everything clean, perfect service,small but good room, fine breakfast.

    Noisy in the weekends if you want to leave the window open.

  • Single
    9.2

    It was clean, central, had good facilities and the staff were very pleasant and helpful.

    My room was very warm despite the fact there was no heating on. Not sure why since the weather was very cool for the duration of my stay.

  • Single
    7.0

    Great location.

    The room was nice enough just very small and in the attic, and overlooked a narrow laneway. When I checked out I thought that the price was higher than I had booked with Booked.net but the receptionist insisted that it was correct. As I was in a rush I didn't argue but when I checked it later and called they fixed it.

  • Single
    10.0

    The reception was very friendly and kind; The room was clean, the bath room was also just adequate.

    I do not have anything to complain this time.

    Everything was perfect! Staff was very nice, rooms were newly refurnished and the design is great. I will definitely come back here.
