The Florhof, Zurich / Switzerland





















After its recent renovation, the historical Florhof is the most beautiful hotel in Zurich’s town centre. You reside above the “Dörfli” and enjoy your breakfast croissant on the lovely sun terrace.

Let’s start with the most important data: The Florhof is a building from the old school, but has been renovated with a loving eye for detail. The facade stems from 1763, it has been run as a guesthouse since 1907. Even then, this place had a great reputation with artists and creative people. And it’s going to be the case again: The third generation of the owner family, together with the new director Isabelle Zeyssolff, have created a wonderful retreat, which people like to visit, but don’t like to leave.

The 32 rooms are not very large, but very comfortable, stylish and clean. The bathrooms especially have been beautifully renovated and because of the view to the surrounding houses and gardens, you don’t feel as if you’re in a city, but rather in a historical village.

However, we have to admit: when we visited, the evening sun was trickling into the old rooms just like in a fancy movie. It is in such moments that Zurich, as a city, and this area above the historical “Dörfli” is obviously unique. This location is very impressive. Small alleyways, pretty shops and small houses shape the cityscape. It is only a few steps to the surrounding restaurants at the Neumarkt, which we can highly recommend.
