First time in this hotel and found it very good, lovely room , large firm bed, free beer and breakfast !
Didn't get time to go on the roof for a swim - next time...
It is a short walk from Enge but worth it

I was attracted to the lovely pictures of this hotel. It is not quite central, though only 15 minutes away from the centre, so hardly peripheral. The setting is impressive, a converted brewery. The entrance is lovely, the staff good. The eating/cafe room is handsome, the very high walls stacked with books ( slightly odd to create a library with mostly unreachable books, but nice look).
As for the rooms and coridoors, they are rather bland. It feels more like a prefab there, as if all the energy had gone into the entrance and spa. Service is good, I was woken by 7am works outside and the director apologised and gave me a bottle of bubbly (hence my 'average' on sleep quality, which would otherwise have been faultless)
The spa, I found, was great. Unforgettable rooftop pool, wonderful huge jacuzzi tubs below, and beautiful. I dont know about massages etc.
All in all some great points, mainly the spa, but slightly punching above its weight.

If you are tired of the typical hotel and want something a little different then do try the B2 Hotel + Spa.

This former brewery has had a series of incarnations over the past 130 years, the most recent being a $65 million renovation converting it into a sleek, chic boutique hotel with an industrial edge. Great care was taken to preserve the brewery's past and the architects incorporated many of these into the design elements.

My room here was modern and efficient with a low platform bed and contemporary bathroom. The colors were bright and the even the chairs in the rooms were all formerly designer pieces.

One of the focal points of this property is the library. First they took more than 33,000 books from a former bookseller and created massive floor to ceiling shelving that guests can enjoy. Then they created huge chandeliers from old bottles (300 to be exact) and then put lighting filaments in them and strategically placed them on their original drying racks. Quite ingenious I thought.

Guests can also take advantage of the thermal spas here as well as a swimming pool on the roof. These are run cooperatively with the hotel and hotel guests can receive a discount for these services.

The location is close to the city trams, river and shopping areas. If you are looking for a unique accommodation give this a try. I loved it and think you will as well.

Room Tip: We stayed in a standard room but they have suites as well with a loft and a separate seating area.

Well this was originally a brewery, now converted to a hotel. The staff are very friendly and the rooms well equipped, including a free bottle of the beer. Comfortable seating in the library area where you can enjoy the books and a drink. Easy to find and close to the city with good restaurants in the area.

Room Tip: I was told I was on the quieter side, so you could always ask for that, and it was quiet.

Stayed on two separate occasions in March for Business. Very very helpful and friendly staff. I stayed in executive rooms which were bigger than the standard. For Zurich it is good value for money, although not cheap by any means. Breakfast included and very good quality. If you have the budget go for a suite, split level and very large space indeed. My fellow guests raved about the rooftop Spa, but I did not visit it personally. Wifi is free but slow. Faster wifi is available for a fee. Could do with a couple more English channels but you do get BBC1 and BBC2 on the large flat screen TV. Local wine and beer served in the lounge very good and food quality excellent from a small menu. Rooms very well appointed and comfortable beds.
Not central but only five mins into the centre by taxi. Would stay again when next in Zurich.

Room Tip: 403 is a good size executive room

Stayed at the B2 in March 2013. Given that the hotel advertised itself as being right near the tourist sites, I was a little disappointed by the location. We were upgraded to a nicer suite, which was appreciated, but our stay was only one night. The size and shape of the hotel meant that the suites were hard to find (2 different stair cases and through a large "Machinenraum"). Accommodations themselves were very comfortable and contemporary, though there was a certain prison-like feel to the suite. The in-bedroom bathtub was fun.

Room Tip: The non-suite rooms are closer to the lobby (and easier to find).
