Hotel Glärnischhof is a very nice place to stay for business in Zürich, where I have visited several times. Its location worked well for me, a short tram/taxi ride away from train stations, close to the center of the city and a short walk over the bridge to Bellevue/Opernhaus, where I stumbled on the Christmas market this year. Very good...

We always stay on 4+ star hotels, as an ingredient we enjoy in our vacation, not in a snobbish way. Most 4 star hotels cover the minimum and barely keep the 4 while feeling like 3 stars. Glaernischhof is different, everything is perfect and the staff is amazing; one detail after another, my family was always pleasantly surprised and we...
