Wherever I go traveling, I look first for the Stigenberger brand, so I may be a little bias! but I have stayed with them in multiple cities and have never been disappointed. The main reason I stay with them over all else?? they let me bring my dog! Why do soooo many hotels say no!
Anyway, Zurich... The hotel is RIGHT on the edge of Lake Zurich... I mean get your feet wet close! and the restuarant & breakfast rooms are all on the first floor with a fantastic view over the lake and towards the mountains. Breakfast with this view was a pleasure each and every day.
An easy walk into the old town, but it is a walk.... perhaps 10 minutes? but again, alongside the lake this was never a chore... and plenty of Taxis & trams around should you wish.
The room itself was very Swiss if that doesn't sound odd... very high quality, but lots of wood (including the floor)... I think it is the first hotel I have been to without a carpet in the room.... but it totally works for the look of the place.
And then all the usual Stigenberger stuff.... amazing food, fantastically and genuinely helpful and friendly staff.... generally exactly what I would expect having been to a fair few of these hotels.
All in all... cant recommend it enough!More
