We recently had the pleasure of staying at Villa Feldpausch and it was instantly one of our favourites. Our party consisted of 4 adults (two couples) plus our infant daughter.
This is more of a review of the Villa as a rental, vs. the B&B. We had the whole second and third floor to ourselves and it was very nice to come back after a long day trip out of town or shopping downtown, and hop into our pyjamas to unwind. The bedrooms are very spacious by European standards and having the well stocked kitchen was very handy for breakfast and the odd supper back at home. They had a wonderful Nespresso Machine as well for the perfect cup of Espresso or Coffee anytime time of day.
Internet via Wi-fi and the supplied computer was very convenient. If you have an Apple device you may use AirPrint to print train tickets, etc. I really felt I was at home with all the amenities at our disposal.
There is a bakery just a short walk away where you can buy some milk, cheese, eggs and cured meats for breakfast, along with some fresh bread of course! They are located about 5 km from the main shopping area, which is a short tram ride away (the tram station being a short 5 minute walk from the villa).
Beatrice was also a very lovely and gracious host. We arrived very early in the morning in Zurich and even though our accommodations were not ready, she allowed us to drop our bags off and be on our way to tour the city. When we returned, too tired to consider going out for supper, Beatrice helped us order some delivery as my wife's German was spotty at best.
Zurich was the first leg of our vacation and our four night stay at Villa Feldpausch was a very good start to our trip!
