Marktgasee Hotel | Where to Stay in Zurich | Lightfoot Travel
Marktgasse Hotel Zurich

After two years of meticulous renovation, the Marktgasse Hotel reopened in 2015, offering guests a haven of luxury and comfort in the heart of Zurich’s Old Town. The historically-listed building, which dates back to the 13th century now seamlessly blends old-world authenticity with modern elegance, creating an incomparable experience for guests from near and far.

Original elements like pillars paneled walls, and tiled stoves combine with clean palettes, streamlined design, and modern Scandinavian furnishings, to create richly layered environments you’ll never want to leave. The 39 rooms (including two suites and six junior suites) each feature unique layouts, offering a new experience with every stay.

On the ground floor, Baltho Bar and the Café Take-out offer simple snacks. On a sunny day, the terrace is the place to sit and observe the comings and goings of city life.

If you can tear yourself away from the exquisite comfort of your room, you’ll be rewarded with boutiques, galleries, restaurants, and bars, all close at hand.

Location & Getting There
The Marktgasse Hotel is situated in the heart of Zurich´s Old Town, just 500 meters from the lake. Zurich International Airport is a 25-minute drive. 

Accommodation
From cozy single rooms to the spacious Marktgasse Suite, each of the 39 rooms at the Marktgasse is completely unique and individually furnished with high-quality modernist designer pieces. Oak parquet floors, contemporary furniture, and a graphic palette of black, grey, and white are reminiscent of understated Scandinavian design, while historic details like stucco, wall paneling, and tiled stoves bring a Parisian flair to every space. It’s the perfect blend of Europe’s most cosmopolitan cities.

All rooms and suites at the Marktgasse include premium Schramm mattresses to ensure a good night’s sleep. Many of the ensuite bathrooms are equipped with a rain shower or bathtub, and all feature Aesop hair and body products – a total delight for the senses every morning and every night. With a different floor plan for every room, each stay at the Marktgasse is a completely unique experience.
