Zurich Hotel

Zurich: Claridge Hotel Tiefenau
Near the Art Museum, above the opera, 10 minutes walk from Old Town and Seefeldstrasse, 20 minutes walk from Bahnhofstrasse. 4 stars.
Very good quality small hotel in an historic building in a residential area. Not much noise from the streets, but on our recent stay we were kept awake one night by helicopters flying overhead (I have no idea what that was about).
We stayed here for two nights in 2002 and again in 2003. Both times we were not able to get into our room before noon, which is understandable because it is a small hotel. Next time I will either book with a larger hotel, or book an extra night. Our room the first time was a good size with a nice bathroom; this trip we had a smaller room with a very small bathroom (in two rooms – one toilet only, one with sink and tub/shower).
My favorite thing about Hotel Tiefenau, besides the excellent location, is that you can have breakfast sent to your room. Coffee, hot milk, a basket of croissants and rolls with butter and jam.
