If there's an actual middle point in Zurich, this hotel is it, offering exceptional service and accommodation in an exceptional location. Directly opposite Zurich Main station, the Hotel Schweizerhof Zurich induces nostalgia for an age when men doffed their caps and long-distance travel was done by locomotive. Positioned on Bahnhofstrasse, this neoclassical property is decorated with elegant period furniture plus the modern accoutrement of flat screen TVs, Wi-Fi access, adjustable motorized beds, and complete soundproofing - a must given the hotel's busy location. With boutique cafes, high-end restaurants, and luxury stores at the door, there's no shortage of things to do from here, even if the weather doesn't permit a lazy walk down to the lake. Breakfast at the Hotel Schweizerhof Zurich is also somewhat of an affair, offering the usual egg-related dishes plus smoked salmon, gourmet coffees, and champagne.
