Best Kid-Friendly Hotels in Zurich

View all Zurich Hotels

With its classic chocolate shops, Old World activities (don't miss the 19th-century funicular or steam-ship tour), and a high level of safety and cleanliness, Zurich is a delight for children and prarents alike. Most Zurich hotels are geared toward business or well-heeled leisure travelers, but some feature family-friendly conveniences, like extra beds and central locations. See the top kid-friendly hotels in Zurich.

  1. The 48-room Walhalla Hotel is a mid-range property conveniently located in central Zurich close to major tourist sights and within walking distance of the main train station. Bright, well-maintained rooms have tablet computers uploaded with tourist information, flat-screen TVs with DVD players, and free Wi-Fi. Breakfast is only included in some of the rates, but overall, this hotel is a good value for a famously expensive city. 

  2. The Sorell Hotel Rutli is a mid-range chain hotel housed in a charming 19th-century building in Zurich's picturesque Old Town. Modern rooms (including Family Rooms) have high-end amenities like interactive flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi, and Nespresso coffeemakers. Note that street-facing rooms can get some noise. A decent breakfast of meats, cheeses, and pastries is included in the rate, though there's no restaurant. 

  3. The Hotel Helmhaus is set on a cobbled square overlooking the River Limmat in Zurich's Old Town. It qualifies as one of Zurich’s oldest guesthouses, with records going as far back as 1356. Despite its 14th-century roots, the hotel's 24 rooms are particularly sleek and contemporary, with polished oak floors, satellite TV, and free (and fast) Wi-Fi. As this is a small boutique hotel, there's not a great deal in the way of on-site facilities. The free daily breakfast, however, is generous, and comes with a wide range of options, from homemade muesli to cooked-to-order eggs. Early-bird continental breakfasts are also available. Reception offers iPads out to loan and can help organize tours and excursions.
