We were thrilled with the wonderful wedding reception for our daughter and her husband - August 2012 at the gorgeous Baur Au Lac.

All of our guests from Canada, USA, Switzerland and Dubai were incredibly impressed with this beautiful hotel.

Thank you so much for the outstanding service that you provided to our family during the planning, as well as the actual day of the wedding reception at Baur Au Lac. Every guest said that it was the most beautiful wedding reception they had ever attended.

The Baur Au Lac is a breath-taking setting. The hotel itself is stunning and from the moment we arrived everything was superb! The accomodation was beautiful and to be honest I have never experienced such a beautiful hotel suite.

Our guests were thrilled with the elegant champagne cocktail hour in the garden. As well, the beautiful banquet room, delicious cuisine and the impeccable service were wonderful.

Manuela, I sincerely hope we cross paths again at the hotel. It was a pleasure meeting you and we sincerely appreciated the superb service you provided. We greatly appreciated your prompt answers to our emails from North America. The Baur Au Lac is very lucky to have you on their staff.

In closing, on behalf of our entire family, thank you for making the wedding day so special. Without a doubt the memories created at Baur Au Lac will last a lifetime!

All the best,

Susan (Canada)

Room Tip: Simply contact the hotel and ask for their assistance. They are very knowledgable and provide excellent guidance.

I have 2 go to Europe several times a year for work and find the Zurich airport absolutely the easiest one to arrive to from America. Once I arrive there I go straight to the Baur Au Lac Hotel in Zurich. There are in reality many other hotels to go to in Zurich which are lesser in price. But for me the Baur Au Lac is the place 2 go . It is minutes away from the main shopping street, minutes away from the Train station and a very short walk to the old town. The Baur au lac was just recently renovated and the rooms are lovely and comfortable and for me very quiet.
It is elegantly run, the service is meticulous. The restaurant in the Pavillion , which also was recently renovated, has the most beautiful atompshere which overlooks their gardens and the buffet for breakfast is great, from their selection of cheeses, to their muesli and nova lux.this is surely one of the best run hotels and most elegant in the world. Though a little pricey compared to
New York city or London it really isn't. Don't hesitate to go if you go to Zurich.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the canal it tends to be very quiet there.

This is the second time i stayed at this fantastic hotel.

The rooms are very tastefully decorated and very comfortable, but what is incredible is the service and the courtesy of the staff.

Almost every member calls you by name even on the first meeting!! AMAZING!

Location is superb ofcourse though not may rooms have a great view!

definitely the first choice for a hotel for business and pleasure stay in Zurich!!

Room Tip: All rooms are great you cant go wrong!!

The rooms are large and have heated floors in the bathrooms. Very clean and fully equipped. First class amenities. The shower spills gallons of water on you and there are more towels than you could ever use.
The restaurant is on the same level is tour d'argent in Paris. Very pleased with the location, nearest hotel to the lake.
Did not get a room with a lake view. Not necessary, however, I might try that next time. Black out drapes, in addition, automated plantation blinds that completely block all light.

Our family stopped here for one night on our way back to the USA. I have to say everything was fantastic.

We required transportation for six people from Basel to Zurich and then to the Zurich airport the following day. We had the same driver both days and he was phenomenal. He was friendly and assisted us all the way to check in at the airport on our way out of town.

The rooms (two adjoining junior suites) were huge, immaculate, and beautiful. There was ample closet space, sitting space and huge bathrooms. The beds were extremely comfortable.

The concierge made a wonderful restaurant reservation for us and was beyond helpful when it came to sharing directions, maps and the like.

I will definitely return to this hotel and give it my highest recommendation. I have not one complaint.
