How to find a hotel in Zurich

There are countless hotels in Zurich, so finding the perfect one might be a challenge. What's the best hotel for you depends on your plans, budget, whether you prefer good views, and perhaps even more. We'll gladly explain about the various parts of the city, and other things to consider in your search for the best place to stay.

Hotels near the Zurich main train station

Zurich isn't the best place to get around by car (find more information here). If you are planning to take day trips out of town, a hotel at walking distance of the main train station (Zurich HB) is most convenient. That also places you in the city center, so exploring locally will be easy as well. There are many other train stations in Zurich, which all offer frequent connections, but Zurich HB is the main public transport hub.

These are our favorite hotels at less than 10 minutes on foot from Zurich HB station:

Hotels with plenty of parking

If you will mainly be traveling by car, the city is best avoided because of the busy traffic and hard to find or expensive parking options. Hotels in the outskirts, nearby towns like Uitikon and Thalwil, and around the airport (Kloten, Rümlang) generally have much more parking space available. Parking is not necessarily free though. Public transport allows you to reach central Zurich very quickly. A few examples of driver friendly hotels close to Zurich:

Airport hotels

Hotels near the airport are convenient in case of an early departure or late arrival. Please find all details and recommended hotels here.

Hotels with panoramic views

Some hotels in and around the Zurich offer a great city view, either because they are located on a hill or because it's simply a very tall building. Our favorites:

  • Hotel Uto Kulm, 4-star, on a hill south of Zurich. The hotel is surrounded by forests, easy to access by direct train, and offers an amazing view of the city, the lake and the Alps on the horizon;
  • Sorell Hotel Zurichberg, 4-star, on a hill north of Zurich. Wonderful views of Lake Zurich from a rural setting just outside the city. There is a direct tram into the city center;
  • The Dolder Grand, 5-star, on a hill north of Zurich. A luxurious hotel with views of the city and the lake;
  • The 5-star Marriott Hotel is one of the tallest buildings in central Zurich;
  • The 5-star Renaissance Zurich Tower Hotel offers an urban view over all of Zurich.

Lake view hotels

Zurich is "folded around" Lake Zurich, but if you prefer a hotel room with a lake view, the choice is very limited. Most hotels are in the historical town center or the outskirts in the north and east of the city, away from the lake. A few more options can be found in towns just outside Zurich. There are more hotels offering lake views from farther away: please see our suggestions for hotels with panoramic views above. These are our suggestions for hotels directly on Lake Zurich:

Hotels with Limmat river view

The river Limmat runs straight across Zurich, but there is only a handful of hotels directly on the river. They offer picturesque views of the water and the city.

Low budget options

If you're not picky about the location, you will for sure find some affordable options (by Zurich standards). A few suggestions to start your search with:

Luxurious options

Finding a comfortable luxurious option for a few nights in Zurich is not difficult. These are the 5-star options you should definitely consider:

Zurich, Hotel Adler

This hotel is situated on a pretty square in the pedestrian zone of Niederdorf, the eastern part of the center of Zurich. It's close to the Limmat river and at walking distance from all attractions. We recommend the Adler hotel if you'd like to taste typical Swiss dishes, as that's the specialty of their restaurant.
