Our boutique hotel with its 39 individually furnished rooms, two restaurants and a bar is right in the heart of it all. The building from the 15th century can look back on over 600 years of hospitality. Following a comprehensive renovation, the rich stories from the past can still be felt and experienced, such as in the slightly uneven floors. Many of the heritage elements enjoy protected status and have been carefully preserved, resulting in a compelling mix of past history with timeless, eclectic design, full of charm and personality.
Surrounded by winding lanes and centuries of history, just a short walk from top sightseeing highlights, the lake and the main train station, you’ll have the pleasure of staying at one of Zurich’s oldest inns. Following a careful and comprehensive renovation, the hotel offers a compelling mix of timeless eclectic design and tremendous charm and personality.
Surprising, contemporary and relaxed: on the ground floor you’ll find our Baltho Restaurant and the Baltho Bar, as well as the delish Café.
