The Premises 

Zürich’s cobbled Old Town streets wind out from Marktgasse Hotel, a stay set in two historic townhouses. Each mod-minimalist guest room is unique, but all have cloud-soft beds and period detailing. There's dining to write home about, too: high-concept culinary feats at Igniv or fluffy pinsas (a variation on pizza) and cinnamon rolls at the more casual Delish, La Pinseria. On sunny days the Igniv bar terrace is the place for chilled cocktails and people-watching.

In rooms: TV, water carafes (with a filling station in every corridor), Soeder bath products, air-conditioning; the Historic Double rooms and and Junior Suite also have Nespresso coffee machines and Geneva sound systems.


Bring your cobblestone-ready footwear and an appetite for cinnamon rolls and chocolate.


Welcome. There are games and books in the library, and baby cots and highchairs can be provided on request.


Hotel guests have free access to the gyms and wellness areas of the Fitnesspark Stockerhof and Fitnesspark Stadelhofen, both a 15-minute walk away. Here you can also book a sports massage (for an extra charge) after your cardio session. The gym opens from 6am to 10pm from Monday to Friday, and from 8am to 8pm on weekends; the wellness centre opens from 8am to 9.45pm from Monday to Friday, and from 8am to 7.45pm on weekends.


All common areas in the hotel are wheelchair accessible, there’s a lift to all floors and two guestrooms have specially-adapted bathrooms; check availability with our Smith24 team when booking.
Browse for a book in the hotel’s library or decamp to the adjoining salon for a night of drinks and board games. Both rooms can be hired out for special events.


If the main entrance of the hotel is closed when you arrive, please ring the bell on the left side of the entrance. Due to Covid-19 precautions, some of the hotel's facilities may be closed, so we strongly advise that you contact the hotel in advance of your stay to check which will be open to guests.


All rooms in this listed building have unique layouts and period details, including some parquet flooring, original tiled stoves and large windows, depending on your choice of lodging; rooms on higher floors tend to have less-lofty ceilings than those on lower floors, and rooms at the back are a bit quieter than their street-facing counterparts. For an alfresco space to call your own, swing for the generously sized Historic Double with a roof terrace and you’ll be rewarded with cityscape views from your private perch.

Food & Drink 

Unforgettable Features 

Casual café Delish La Pinseria serves a selection of breakfast goodies in the mornings and pinsas (a fluffier variation on pizza), salads and desserts later on. For fine dining, book ahead at Igniv (pronounced Inn-yif, from the Romansh word for nest), a high-concept restaurant based on sharing and masterminded by star chef Andres Caminada.

Experience the Extraordinary 

Keen swimmers are in luck: lakeside Zürich loves its lidos (there are 18 in total); we especially like Seebad Enge. Boutique lovers will find they’re only a five-minute walk from main shopping promenade Bahnhofstrasse, and foodies can explore their way through artisanal shop Berg un Tal for local treats and regional drinks. Modern-art aficionados can get their fix at Kunsthaus Zürich, which has a Swiss-centric collection that spans from the Middle Ages to nowadays. Opera enthusiasts can easily swing by the city’s main venue, just a few minutes’ walk from the hotel, to check out the schedule, and for board-treading action, there’s the nearby the Schauspielhaus theatre. For little Smiths, the zoo is 15 minutes away by tram, and the city’s toy museum is a five-minute walk away. If you're planning on shopping, note that everything's closed on Sundays.


Marktgasse Hotel is on a pedestrianised cobblestone street in the heart of Zürich’s old town.


Direct flights from major hubs in North America and across Europe land at Zürich Airport, 30 minutes away by car; our Smith24 team can arrange your flights and transfers.


Eurostar and TGV trains regularly pull into Zürich Main Station, 10 minutes by car from the hotel.


You won’t need a car to navigate the city – and they’re technically verboten in Old Town – but you can drive right up the traffic-free street to the hotel door to drop your bags; just have a print-out of your reservation handy to show to traffic police if asked. There are several paid (CHF40-50 a day) public car parks within a short walk from the hotel.


You can catch a city tram from Zürich Main Station or the airport to the Rathaus stop; the hotel is a minute’s walk away on Marktgasse.
