Considered one of the most prestigious streets of Europe, Bahnhofstrasse, is the Zurich equivalent of Bond Street, Fifth Avenue or Rodeo Drive. Only the architecture of the banks and the trams make it different.

You can find everything you need in the area. You shop, have a good cup of coffee and enjoy your ice cream while walking.

I would suggest the Leoneck Swiss Hotel, offers a great price/location/quality deal. Is very close to the Limmat and to the Hauptbahnhof meaning a walking distance of 5 to 25 minutes to almost all the attractions.
