Hotel Adler is a traditional three-star superior hotel with Swiss flair. It first opened its doors in the late 16th century and has welcomed guests ever since. It should come as no surprise that the hotel enjoys a great international reputation and has many regulars who come back year after year. Resident manager Tessy Bloch says: “The ancient walls have been renovated completely and today the hotel offers modern comfort with a lot of charm. Large-sized paintings of the town of Zwingli decorate each of our 52 rooms.”

Hotel Adler also displays a large collection of the famous Swiss landscape painter Rudolph Koller (1828-1905) who spent part of his childhood in the area. Situated in the old part of town but within walking distance to the train station, the hotel is not only the perfect choice for tourists but also business travellers wanting to enjoy warm hospitality. “At Hotel Adler guests experience individual service by long-term staff,” Ms Bloch adds. The hotel’s popular restaurant Swiss Chuchi also adds to its outstanding reputation. Indulging in a traditional Swiss fondue, best enjoyed with a glass of white wine, should be on every guest’s to-do list.
“We offer a variety of packages for the holidays and guarantee a competitive price for individual bookings directly through the hotel, via our website, telephone, fax or email,” Ms Bloch says. “Guests can also choose from six tours designed by our hotel offering an insight to the Adler’s perspective on Zurich. It comes with our very own map.” Just a few weeks back, the FIFA World Soccer Museum opened and guests of the Adler can buy tickets at the hotel allowing them to skip the queues. This year also marks the 100th birthday of Dada as well as the Cabaret Voltaire Zurich. The anniversary programme at the art movement’s place of origin offers a variety of great events and is more than enough reason to book a visit. Hotel Adler is a true home from home and welcomes every guest with heartfelt service and a great deal of Swiss charm. www.hotel-adler.ch
