Building: 1291

Step into your own personal hideaway in the heart of historic Zurich. Now a listed building, it was first recorded in writing way back in 1291. Since it opened as a hotel, its watched as the city has grown into a world-class destination. Surrounded by charming cobbled streets and chocolate-box shops and packed to the brim with cultural hotspots, Zurich is a city breakers’ dream.

Conveniently located in Zurich’s charming old town, between Central and Bellevue, our 39-roomed boutique hotel blends modern minimalist interiors with our fascinating heritage — think tactile leather chairs and panelling partnered with slick architectural lines. A city oasis with feather-soft beds, shiny bathrooms stocked with Aesop toiletries and a dedicated library room to read away the afternoon with a coffee.

Our award-winning IGNIV Restaurant promises a masterclass in Michelin-star fine dining; the drinks list is also exceptional. Can you imagine anything as divine as cocktails and dinner after a day of experiencing the magic of Zurich?

Occasions to Remember

Some of the highlights of staying at our historic hotel


Heritage-protected details such as stucco, wall panelling, tiled stoves and oak parquet flooring feature heavily across our 39 stylish rooms. Sophisticated city pad meets the pared-back elegance of 15th-century design; dressed in crisp white linens, our comfortable beds provide a restful night’s sleep, and our rain showers will prepare you for a day of urban exploration. Order one of our extras for something special — a bottle of Veuve Fourny & Fils Champagne delivered to your room is always a good idea.


Enjoy a fine-dining experience at IGNIV Restaurant and Bar. Led by Head Chef Andreas Caminada, this two-Michelin-starred dining room is deliciously decadent and modern. Expertly crafted cocktails in the Bar are not to be missed, and with bar snacks including beef tartare and a sumptuous decor — you won’t want to leave. Delish Café, famed for its cinnamon rolls, does breakfasts of homemade granola and muffins. It opens to the street for lunchtime offerings of pulled-pork sandwiches and a range of salads.


Our library and the adjoining salon are made for lounging but double as a central meeting space in the heart of Zurich. The library is available for exclusive hire with a table that seats eight, flat screens, and an extensive collection of inspiring books. The salon features an inviting modern living room atmosphere with seating for six people. The rooms can be connected to accommodate larger groups and hired individually or together.
