  • In the family room, it show there is one double bed and one large double bed, does that mean there are two bedrooms and one seating area?

    The Family Room consists of two - normally separate - rooms, each with its own bathroom, tv, chairs, desk, etc. Both rooms are reachable via one antechamber. This antechamber's front door can be closed, changing both rooms to one Family Room.

  • good day. Do you have stairs to access rooms as elevators are usually too small for me? Thank you.

    Dear guest. Yes, our hotel does also have a staircase to access all rooms. Our lift is indeed smaller since our building is 700 years old, going back to 1356, und thus space for a lift is limited. And our team is certainly helpful with luggage. Kind regards, your Helmhaus Team.

  • Hi do you have parking?

    Due to our location in the pedestrian zone of Zurich's old town, we do not have our own parking facilities. Guests are allowed to drive in front of the hotel at any time. We will then help with directions to the nearest public car park.
