With an attractive setting where river meets lake, Zurich makes for a picturesque city break indeed. Consider its ornate church steeples and the charming winding lanes, its contemporary edge and its rich culture, and you won’t be surprised to learn that it’s not only one of the world’s most popular destinations to visit, but also to live. As Switzerland’s largest city to boot, you can expect big things from this gem.
Steigenberger Bellerive au Lac occupies an excellent spot right by the water, affording it wonderful views from the front terrace. Elegant in design both inside and out, you’ll find a tempting international restaurant on site, a bar with a plush member’s room ambiance, and comfortable guest rooms brimming with minimalist-chic, 1920s Art Deco flair; the best bit – your comes complete with an enviable lake view.
How to Get There
good location at the lakeside, five minutes walking from the zurich opera. many good restaurants and bars are at a walking distance
very professional service
good room: clean and in good condition, elegantly decorated, good size, with minibar, coffee maker, a good bed, good bathroom with good amenities, more than sufficient storage capacity in the wardrobes, good lightning. in my case, a small balcony with a table and two chairs overlooking the lake (these rooms are more expensive than the city view ones)
soundproofing was excellent: no noises were heard in the room neither from the corridor nor from the street once the balcony was closed
free wifi worked well, but loggin in was complicated
breakfast was good with the exception of scrambled eggs, too dry and hard
dogs are allowed for 30 francs per night
the hotel does not have its own carpark, but the valet parking can do it for 40 euros
i did not try the restaurant. i did not try either the sauna and fitness facilities
the price was clearly below zurich standards for this category of hotel, so the value for money was excellent
certainly recommended, but i was told the the hotel will unfortunately close in the next months
The registration staff were extremely efficient and helpful through the duration of our stay. Maid service was exceptional. We were delighted with the Jr. Suite upgrade and relieved that this lake view room on the main street was quiet. The hotel has class, and the staff has polish. Situated on the lake near the opera house, but not far walking distance to the quaint old town.
The room was pretty clean (with wooden floor+++, fed up with those disgusting carpets that you find in lotsa hotels!, no one puts those things at home anymore, the 70s are over!) service was good,
lake view is very nice, and breakfast very good.
In addtion, the centre is very close.
