Pretty, personal, elegant

Hotel Helmhaus - the boutique hotel in Zurich 

The present, family-run Boutique Hotel Helmhaus in the old town is one of Zurich’s oldest guesthouses: Records of the guesthouse once called ‘Hie zum Rosslyn’ go back as far as 1356 AD.

Today simple elegance and generous esthetics distinguish the hotel Helmhaus. There is a choice between 24 recently renovated rooms, each individually designed and furnished. We attach great importance to premium comfort. A particular eye-catcher is our collection of paintings by Swiss artist Gisèle Mengis.

Services as complimentary wireless Internet access are a matter of course. The qualified staff takes distinctive and personal care of you during your stay.

The Zurich region is the economic centre of Switzerland. Thanks to the strong presence of international companies that benefit from the exceptionally favourable location factors: The densest public transport network in the world, countless direct flights to destinations around the globe, reputable education institutions such as the University of Zurich, the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) and IBM Lab. In addition, Zurich and the region around Lake Zurich offer culture and art collections of world renown. Preserved nature, clean lakes and rivers, rolling hills, dense forests and mountains, picturesque villages - and all just a stone's throw from the Alps. The Zurich metropolitan region is an ideal starting point for varied excursions - and provides a globally unique quality of life.


The lakeside discovery metropolis with views of the snowcapped Alps on the horizon offers a unique mix: over 50 museums and more than 100 galleries, international shops and urban Zurich labels, the liveliest nightlife in Switzerland, countless lake and river swimming spots in the town centre as well as hiking and biking opportunities on the local mountain Uetliberg. In Zurich, the highest level is standard - Zurich regularly wins awards as the city with the world's best quality of life for a reason.
