“A great new place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

Travelled to Zurich to work on my third city guide (app) and decided to stay at the B2 (B Square). What a very pleasant surprise. Compared to other hotels the rates are fairly reasonable for Zurich and for Switzerland. I had a regular room but it was so well appointed. From the moment I arrived until the moment I left the staff was warm and welcoming and always helpful. Included in the room is breakfast (all local products such as cheeses, meats, etc) with muesli, croissants, juices, etc - all very good quality. A minibar is stocked with coke/diet, flat/sparkling and beer or OJ replenished daily and FREE. Wifi was also free (we love that at onestop). The spa/thermal baths are not owned by the hotel so you have to pay to use them but it's CHF25 for 24 hours (actual 24hrs, not per day). You have a private entrance from the hotel and can use the bracelet they give you to access it and even charge items such as food, drinks. As some people have mentioned before, weekends are mobbed and you will enjoy it much more during the week.

The hotel is walking distance from trams, SilhCity with movie theatres, shopping, etc and also around 15-20 min walking distance to main train station or Banhoffstrasse. The cab I took from the train station when I arrived was around CHF25-30.

My room was 121 and had a great view, was extremely quiet and everything worked perfectly with a comfy bed. The place was spotless. My only criticism is that the hotel doesn't have a gym.

I look forward to coming back some day.

Room Tip: Room 121 was great but if you have the $, get one of the duplex suites, they are gorgeous and very o...

I spend a long weekend in beginning of February with my wife and 3y.o. daughter and we are very happy with the hotel.
At check-in we were upgraded to a suite (I believe they called it Honeymooner's) which is nice and specious on two levels - living space, bathroom, and kitchen downstairs and bedroom with open space bathtub upstairs. Service was flawless all the way. Location of the hotel is OK next to train station (5mins to Zurich HB).

The only disappointment we had (major one) was the Spa. Although it is not anything below what the photos show (nice rooftop pool and huge underground area) one should know that on slow week day afternoon there are as many as fifty people in the rooftop pool and over hundred in the basement.
I believe that this is only place with thermal water in Zurich and this make it crowded. Pools are very nice and warm but this is not hotel spa center - it is community pools. Going in a spa one would assume that it is quite and relaxing. A place where to recharge and calm down. Here however its noisy, fully with people (many students making up in the corners), and nowhere to sit & enjoy.
Also the restaurant is menu is quite poor (some snacks, and daily soup & main course).
Bottom line - the hotel is nice for sleep over. One cannot really enjoy the Spa or in-house dining.

Stayed for one night on business. Despite arriving late the welcome was warm and friendly and I was able to have a quick dinner just before he restaurant closed. The dinner fare was a bit below expectations given the really atmospheric surroundings seated in the central all of the old brewery with 30,000+ books. The room was a very good size, very well equipped and spotless - a very welcome surprise for Zurich where hotels can be exceptionally expensive for tiny rooms. The breakfast buffet the next morning was just what was required and overall an excellent stay. Will be back and next time will try and make use of the roof-top pool.

I like hotel with pools, but I didn't expect such extraordinary location!
The hotel is located close to the city centre in a high hill, its used to be a beer factory and recently turned into a five star modern hotel fully serviced with a very good spa.
The room are big, with big bed, modern interior design, the shower is created by glasses and even the lights are very original and warm.
The breakfast wasn't very big but with a very high qualities of food, but the best attraction is the hot pool on the roof of the building, from where you can see all the city of Zurich surrounded by bubbles, and once you finish there you can enjoy in the cantinas the rest of the SPA amazing number of pools with different temperatures and height.
It's really a very good experience and If are you looking for relax is the place where to go...

Room Tip: Get the deluxe room is very big, better to go to the spa during the week

Used to have a corporate rate at the Dolder but it all got a bit tired up on the Züriberg so we switched to the B2. Now staff are lining up for the Zurich trips again and the mental shift of our company travellers is as refreshing as the hotel itself. Top kudos for excellent and personal service, and a director who has instilled a can-do attitude in every single one of her staff. Interesting lobby bar concept with a focus on local food and wine. The rooftop pool is alone worth the visit. And the hotel enjoys an excellent location just a few minutes walk from the center yet still in an oasis of calm perched on a promontory overlooking the entire city. Only a few quibbles: flakey Internet service that logs you out every few minutes; cool but poorly-designed, drafty showers with limited water pressure on the upper floors. And it's location next to the Googleplex means a few of those slightly-too-loud American new media types who never quite seem to get that everyone around them can, like, hear everything they are saying, you know. But this is hardly the hotel's fault: check out the B2 for an excellent property for business or pleasure at a reasonable price (and that's saying something in Zurich!)

A modern, well-designed hotel with spacious, clean and cosy rooms. Very friendly staff. Breakfast in the impressive library lounge is included in the hotel rate. Just 10 minutes away from the city centre by tram or 30 minutes walking. Highly recommended!

Brand new hotel (a converted brewery, actually) on a hill close to Zurich's center. Suites are large, on two levels (bed upstairs, lounge and bathroom downstairs), with a minimalist design. Some problems with the temperature. Main feature is the spa: there's a large outdoor pool on the roof and the larger thermal baths in the basement. Lots of couples in a romantic getaway. The restaurant inside the stunning library is more of a café, with a very small choice of warm food. Staff alway helpful. Overall, a place which need to be ran in a little bit further to justify the steep prices.
