Overnight stay in the chocolate hotspot in Zurich

  • 5% discount if you book here
  • Free cancellation until 2:00pm on day of arrival

Are you planning a city trip at the weekend or are you looking for a place to stay in the city centre? The new Swiss Chocolate Hotel was built in 2021 and is located in the heart of Zurich – only a 4-minute walk from the main station – at the gateway to the old town (Niederdorf). The location is perfect for discovering the diversity of the city. You can easily reach Zurich’s famous Bahnhofstrasse, numerous restaurants and bars, Lake Zurich, the Grossmünster and other exciting sights on foot.

During your stay, immerse yourself in architecture and décor inspired by the fabulous history of Swiss chocolate: From the cocoa forests to the chocolate bar, without forgetting the pioneers of production. Already at the reception, all gourmets are warmly welcomed with our chocolate fountain.

Where can you find us? In a prime location in the centre of Zurich:

Zähringerstrasse 46
8001 Zürich


Enjoy the extraordinary flair and diversity of the city of Zurich also in the hotel. From our 56 non-smoking rooms, there are two panorama rooms with a view of the picturesque Polybahn as well as a skyline room with a view over the rooftops of the old town. Each of our hotel rooms surprises with an individual design devoted to the Swiss Chocolate History, creative mix of styles: playful yet tactful. Your overnight stay will be something very special – we promise.
