Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group’s latest opening blends contemporary luxury with historic charm, providing exceptional experiences in the heart of Zurich

Mandarin Oriental is delighted to introduce the group’s third property in Switzerland as it brings its legendary hospitality to the country’s largest city, Zurich. Located on the famous Paradeplatz, Mandarin Oriental Savoy, Zurich is an iconic landmark hotel sitting just steps away from the prestigious Bahnhofstrasse and its high-end fashion houses, the historic old town, and charming promenade leading to Lake Zurich.

The story of Mandarin Oriental Savoy, Zurich started back on Christmas Eve, 1838, when a young baker from Vorarlberg in Austria called Johannes Baur founded the city’s first grand hotel, the Hotel Baur. Exactly 185 years later, again in the days just before Christmas, this icon is reborn as it opens its doors to international travellers and the local community following an extensive renovation.

To celebrate the spirit of Christmas and pay homage to the hotel’s original 1838 opening date, Mandarin Oriental Savoy, Zurich has partnered with legendary luxury jeweler Harry Winston to create stunning Christmas trees. The beautifully decorated trees sparkle this festive season in Harry Winston’s signature blue and gold as they adorn the hotel’s lobby, restaurants, and signature suites.


Mandarin Oriental Savoy, Zurich has been reimagined by the highly respected Paris-based interior designer Tristan Auer who has seamlessly combined historical details with contemporary style while ensuring that the hotel maximises its extraordinary views over the city’s landmarks. Guest rooms and suites are designed for both aesthetics and functionality, creating intimate sanctuaries of relaxation and comfort inspired by the colours of the city and Zurich’s modern art scene. Many of the 44 rooms and 36 suites boast spacious terraces and private rooftops, along with beautifully handcrafted living spaces.

With its prime city center location and more than 700 sqm of meeting and event space, Mandarin Oriental Savoy is also the perfect destination for special occasions such as weddings, parties, celebrations, and corporate functions.

To celebrate the opening, Mandarin Oriental Savoy, Zurich is offering an enticing Be the First to Stay package, affording guests exclusive benefits including daily breakfast, dining credit, and more. For more information and reservations, please visit Mandarin Oriental Savoy, Zurich.
