About Zürich

Click here for the best places to stay in Zürich

Zürich today is much more than a sleek, cosmopolitan financial capital which enjoys the finer things. Its lakeside position means it's not just clean, it's beautiful. And its large expat and student population means it's also arty, vibrant and possibly even 'happening'. The Hotel Guru's recommendations for the best places to stay in Zurich offer something for everyone; from the trendy and great value 25 Hours to the Dolder Grand, a renowned five star establishment with views to die for!

The elegant lake means that in summer Zurich has plenty of water based activity on offer, as well as Europe's largest street party. And in winter Zurich is a gateway to the snow of the alps - if you're here in February you might even see snow in the city. So there's action as well as culture here.

On the Limmat river's left bank are the upmarket shops, crowded along the Bahnhofstrasse, and on the right bank, the Nirderdorf, you'll find the bars and antique shops.

Along the river itself you'll find artist's studios romantically crammed in between cafes, and you'll possibly even stumble across the Cabaret Voltaire, where the Dada movement was founded back in 1916.

For more art visit the Kunthaus, where you'll see works by Munch, Monet, Picasso, Rothko and Warhol. Or one of the other hundred or so art galleries!

On top of the galleries, Zurich has fifteen museums, a zoo and an opera house. And the local tram system makes it easy to navigate.

The old town is overlooked by the towering 'pepper pot' towers of the cathedral, a realm of coffeehouses and chocolate shops.

A third of Zürich's population aren't Swiss passport holders, and those who do have a Swiss passport aren't guaranteed German speakers, you'll hear a lot of French and English in Zürich as well.

The Best Places to Stay in Zürich

For a city break

  • Eight medieval townhouses have been joined up to create the cutting edge design of the Widder Hotel. Five stars worth of ultra modern cool, including excellent food, service and music, this hotel politely yells comfort and style.
  • Vibrant and funky, the 25 Hours Hotel is also one of the best places to stay in Zürich if you're on a budget. This is a colourful spot great for kids, and though it's slightly out of centre, in the financial district, it has its own fleet of free bikes, and of Minis.
  • Right on the river, in the centre of the old town, the Storchen has been a hotel for 650 years. The public rooms have plenty of charm, and while the bedrooms are a bit dated, they're spacious and comfortable.

Romantic Zürich

  • The Florhof Hotel is in a quiet corner of the old town, a converted merchant's house around a sunny courtyard. Cosy and close to the museums, theatres and shopping district.
  • The B2 Boutique Hotel and Spa occupies a former brewery, but the conversion is exceptional, giving the building a spectacular rooftop swimming pool and wonderful wellness centre. Plus a library lounge featuring around 33,000 titles which you are free to borrow.
