Welcome to Hotel Helmhaus, our quiet urban retreat! We are surrounded by Zurich's major cultural landmarks, independent cafés and shops and are in immediate proximity to river and lake. A perfect place for travelers to restore and explore! As a family-run boutique hotel we value personal service and quality even in the small things; clean, unobtrusive design, local produce and partners, and the fine artwork from Swiss artist Gisèle Mengis.
Our spacious double- or two-bed rooms feature a comfortable extra bed for a third person. Fluffy bathrobes as well as special pillows made of finest virgin sheep's wool and pine flakes from the Swiss Alps invite you to relax.
For families with two adults and maximum three children, we offer two rooms connected by an entrance area with a front door. Families with one to two children up to 12 years of age can also choose the Boutique Triple room with a comfortable sofa bed.
Hotel Helmhaus has been welcoming guests for 650 years and is one of the oldest guesthouses in Zurich. During the Reformation, the hotel played a central role in preserving the city’s cultural heritage from iconoclasm and in building up its poor relief.
To this date, this legacy informs the hotel’s commitment to art and sustainable business.
The care and attention you get is unique. You feel at home the moment you pass the door. The calmness, the perfection you find in every detail is special. Swiss hospitality at its best! — Claudia
