clean. friendly. and clean. this is what i've come to expect of the ibis chain. and the ibis zurich city west doesn't disappoint.
situated a short train stop away from zurich central in an area called zurich west, you'll have to get off at the hardbrucke station and walk to this hotel. it's just about 5 minutes, so you can't really complain.
the rooms are not too small. it's about the size of a room in a one bedroom apartment in suburban mumbai. (yeah that's where i live) there's about enough of space for a double bed, a clothes rack, two suitcases and a wee bit to walk around. enough if all you’re gonna do is come back to shower and sleep.
the guys at the reception are really sweet and helpful. so thumbs up to them. the restaurant is nice and has a quaint lil' swiss feel which is nice considering that the rest of the hotel is modern.
another thing that accor (the group that owns ibis) does that is really nice is their green initiative. wherein you can reuse your towels and don't really need to get them changed every time. so you help save energy washing them. and honestly you don't really need to change your towels every time you shower, zurich is one clean city and chances of you getting dirty or muddy are pretty slim.
now you'll probably spend a lot of your time if you are a tourist in the city centre. but if you do have some time to spare, zurich west is not a bad place to hang out in. there's a biggish jazz club just a few steps from the hotel and a few nice restaurants around the place too. plus there's a coop (the local supermarket) just round the corner.
so all in all. good. clean. affordable. that's what the ibis zurich city west is all about.
