Peggy Böhme, Operations Assistant at Sorell Hotel Krone

My highlight as host:

Fully satisfying all the needs of our guests, from all walks of life.

You only get this at the Sorell Hotel Krone:

Every Tuesday and Friday at lunchtime, we serve our guests fresh produce from the Winterthur market.

The most beautiful place with us:

Wherever our guests want to sit. :)

Did you know that…

...the Wirtshaus zur Krone is the oldest guest house in Winterthur? It has been welcoming and catering to guests since 1448. The Krone is full of history.

My holiday tip:

The Sorell Hotel Krone in the picturesque old town is the perfect starting point for a hike in the Töss Valley, a nearby paradise for walkers. Starting from Steg im Tösstal, it takes less than three hours to reach Schnebelhorn mountain, the highest summit in the canton of Zurich.

Christine Abel & Matthias Wettstein, General Managers at Sorell Hotel Tamina

Our highlights as hosts:

Having the opportunity to run the Sorell Hotel Tamina with a very welcoming and individual touch gives us great pleasure and allows us to truly engage with the needs of each guest – this is a real joy!

You only get this at the Sorell Hotel Tamina:

Being able to offer our guests spring water to drink from the Tamina spring and to recommend them the wonderful village spa that they can access directly from the hotel.

The most beautiful place with us:

The light-filled breakfast restaurant in the morning, the garden terrace and garden lounge for a relaxed lunch in the afternoon and in the evening the Tamina Wine Lounge for a nightcap, where you will always find company and experience a warm welcome - either from local regulars or our charming staff. Some of the most beautiful places here at any time of day and night.

Did you know that ...

...the Sorell Hotel Tamina was first mentioned in the history books as early as 1670, and that "Paracelsus" once came to stay here?

Our holiday tip:

In Bad Ragaz, there is something for every sports enthusiast, hiker, shopper and couch potato to enjoy. Give us a call and our very best holiday specialists will advise you. We bet that we can find a good reason for you to come visit us too!

Irene Gangwisch, General Manager at Sorell Hotel Zürichberg

My highlight as host:

When our guests leave the house with a smile, think about their stay with joy and come back - the most beautiful thing there is as a host!

You only get this at the Sorell Hotel Zürichberg:

Legendary, contemporary, visionary - old meets new in a wonderful way.

The most beautiful place with us:

Our lounge and terrace - the panoramic view of Lake Zurich and the surrounding mountains is simply enchanting - regardless of the season! Did you know that when the weather is clear, you can even see the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau from the Sorell Hotel Zürichberg?

Did you know that…

...the Sorell Hotel Zürichberg was the first self-service restaurant in Switzerland? The house was built in 1900 by the Zurich Women's Association as a non-alcoholic people's and spa house to offer all sections of the population the opportunity for holidays in a privileged location high above the city and a place to indulge themselves with coffee and cake. Already on the 1st Sunday after the opening, the company recorded more than 1,000 guests. The walls that are protected by their homeland tell exciting stories!

My holiday tip:

Zurich, a city without borders - whether small or large - for every taste, for every weather - you will find the perfect experience here. Ask me or my team about your suitable holiday experience.

My highlight as host:

Every day at the Sorell Hotel Krone is a highlight for me – the closeness to our guests and the familiar atmosphere give you the feeling of home.

You only get this at the Sorell Hotel Krone:

Tradition meets modernity – our hotel radiates its own history and is combined with contemporary comfort. True to our motto: Eat like a king, sleep like a princess.

The most beautiful place with us:

In the summer, our secluded terrace; in the winter, our cosy lounge bar for enjoying yourself and relaxing.

Did you know that ...

...the Sorell Hotel Krone is the oldest inn in the city of Winterthur? It was first mentioned as an inn in 1434 and even Ulrich Zwingli slept here with us.

My holiday tip:

Winterthur offers something to suit every taste. Here you can explore the wonderful Zurich wine region on a walk through the vineyards with wine tasting.

Nadine Courtial, General Manager at Sorell Hotel Aarauerhof and Arte

The first day in the new position:

It was thrilling and exciting.

This is difficult:

No longer sharing the responsibility.

This is enjoyable:

Happy and satisfied guests and employees.

My favourite place in the hotel:

The lobby, here we welcome and bid farewell to guests and play a vital role when it comes to leaving a first or last positive impression of the Sorell Hotel Aarauerhof among guests. 

My favourite food from our own kitchen:

Minced beef with macaroni, simple and delicious every time.

That impressed me / that will stay with me:

Since working at the Sorell Hotel Aarauerhof, I have been impressed at how Ms Holdener and the ZFV have always supported me. The team spirit in the Aarauerhof team will remain engraved in my memory.

Marco Valmici, General Manager at Sorell Hotel Rüden

My highlight as host:

Every time I manage to surprise my guests.

Only at the Sorell Hotel Rüden:

A historical building full of charm and appeal that takes guests on a journey through time; looked after by passionate hosts who constantly surprise with their discerning little touches.

Our most beautiful spot:

Outside, at the front of our hotel, you can sit at a small table and enjoy the delicious aroma of your espresso mingling with the fresh air and the sunshine, as you watch the city wakening up and savour some peace and quiet before the rush of everyday life calls.

Did you know that…  

... Clara Schumann and Johannes Brahms were among the many prominent guests who stayed at our hotel? They too were inspired by the beautiful town of Schaffhausen.

My holiday tip:

The vineyards in Hallau. For me they are like a little corner of Tuscany in Switzerland, with such an amazing landscape, flowing wines and all of this just a few minutes away from the Sorell Hotel Rüden.



Maureen Chebbo, Receptionist at Sorell Hotel Rütli in Zürich

Congratulations on completing your apprentiship


This summer Ana Baez and Maureen Chebbo successfully completed their apprenticeship at the Sorell Hotel Sonnetal and Sorell Hotel Seidenhof. Maureen Chebbo, who completed her training as «Hotelfachfrau» at the Sorell Hotel Seidenhof, has decided to stay on at Sorell Hotels Switzerland and has started her new job as a receptionist at the Sorell Hotel Rütli.

The first day at work

The first day at work was "mega exhausting". Marta and I cleaned 30 rooms.

That was hard

I found the systems at the front desk a little bit complicated to start with. It takes some time to completely grasp the programs, but then once you do, everything is easy.

That was fun

I enjoyed all the tasks assigned to me, especially working at the front desk. That is why I am still with Sorell Hotels Switzerland, working at the Sorell Hotel Rütli at reception now.

My favourite spot

At reception of course.

My favourite food


That made an impression on me, stayed with me

When I was on the upper floors, I looked after an elderly lady as a guest. She never left her room and she used to watch me whilst I worked. She was always just watching me closely; it was very strange. In the end, she checked out of the hotel but then found a new home in a nursing home. That was the most vivid experience I had.
