I love the location. Some updates to the room would be necessary at some point. It is pity that the toilet is the same area with the rest of the bathroom
Velimir, us2 night romance trip
Very good 8,0
Good to experience once but not extraordinary
It was really a nice stay but for me not worth the money we spent: at this category i eould expect a swimming pool, a sauna and a much bigger choice at breakfast. Also was the room not fully clean (carpet and seat protection in bathroom). Also the service at breakfast could have been more attentive.

Incredible hotel!
We absolutely loved our stay at the Baur Au Lac! The staff were extremely attentive and helpful, the room incredibly spacious, and the location perfect (easy to get to everything by foot). Having a fully stocked mini bar (replenished each day) at no additional cost was a great touch. The stay is worth the splurge!
