Mandarin Oriental Savoy, Zurich

Zurich’s reinvented grande dame

Everything old is new again at Mandarin Oriental Savoy, Zurich. Originally built in 1838, the city’s oldest luxury hotel received a 2023 top-to-bottom facelift at the hands of world-renowned hotel brand Mandarin Oriental but still retains its historic charm and excellent city-center address.

Positioned on the prestigious Paradeplatz, Mandarin Oriental Savoy, Zurich puts you within arm’s reach of the city’s best shopping, top historic sights and the tranquil banks of Lake Zurich. With just 80 accommodations, the property maintains its boutique appeal, especially thanks to interiors reimagined by Parisian designer Tristan Auer. Refurbished rooms and suits exude timeless elegance without forgoing modern creature comforts and sensational city views. A sweep of swanky onsite eateries completes the scene, providing everything you need when staying in Switzerland’s largest city.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • You’d be hard-pressed to find a better address in Zurich than this luxury hotel. A picturesque promenade offers a scenic walk to the shores of Lake Zurich, while the upscale fashion boutiques of Bahnhofstrasse and the historic old town lie a quick taxi ride or stroll away.
  • Auer’s head-to-toe refresh of the historic hotel strikes a harmonious balance between classic elegance and contemporary flair. Luxurious materials like satin and velvet, intricate details, carefully curated artworks and a timeless color palette of neutrals and earthy tones recall Zurich’s jaw-dropping Alpine surroundings.
  • Among the 80 fully refreshed rooms are 36 of the city’s largest suites, ranging in size from the comfortably spacious 645-square-foot Zurich Suite to the palatial 2,152-square-foot Presidential Suite.
  • Looking to explore beyond the sites of Paradeplatz? Mandarin Oriental Savory, Zurich provides a wonderful array of curated Switzerland experiences, including an Alpine hike and fondue lunch, a watchmaking workshop and a chocolate-tasting class.
  • Look for the many thoughtful details throughout the property. Large picture windows afford gorgeous vistas over Zurich’s historic skyline and Alpine mountains beyond, bespoke wallpaper designed by French artist Florence Girette adds an air of stylish sophistication and in-room extras like Bose Bluetooth speakers, gratis minibars and Diptyque bath amenities provide homey luxuries.

The Restaurants

  • Classic Italian flavors are transformed into works of art at Orsini, the Zurich hotel’s exquisite fine-dining restaurant. A menu imagined by acclaimed consultant chef Antonio Guida (of Mandarin Oriental, Milan) features unique plates like bottoni with wild rabbit, carrot cream and nettles or a dish using every single part of a blue lobster, from claws served with black lentils to a rich coral sauce enhanced with stock made from the shells.
  • For something a little less upscale but no less swish, visit Savory Brasserie & Bar. The French-themed art deco dining room features plush blue banquettes, white tablecloths and a menu of seasonal Parisian-meets-Switzerland staples served alongside Prohibition-era cocktails.
  • After a long day of exploring Zurich’s charming sites, cozy up with a cocktail at the living room-like Mandarin Lounge. An enchanting open fireplace keeps the space feeling both intimate and chic, while a lengthy list of signature cocktails, spirits, coffee, tea and treats ensures you won’t have to wander far to find comfort.
  • During temperate summer days, head up to 1838 for a tipple paired with Alpine views. The inviting rooftop bar is a popular spot to snack on Asian-inspired bites surrounded by lush greenery and some of the best vistas in Zurich.
