Zurich Hotel

You could try the Limmatblick, very close to the Railway Station.

All mod cons however a 777 pilot may feel it's a bit claustrophobic, a 737 pilot pilot will feel at home.

Zurich is a lively city, surprisingly

I remember a night stop years ago when in Gulf Air in Zurich as at breakfast I was reading my Daily Telegraph and did not notice that there was a lit candle on the table until my paper burst into flames!

Can't really recommend a hotel - I was living there - but don't go home without going to Brasserie Lipp and the Jules Verne bar above it.

I lived in Zurich for 10 years. Hotel? Hard to say, the Movenpick in Glattbrugg should be alright. I only know the bar there, which is worth a visit. The Jules Verne bar is on top of a tower in the middle of Zurich, if you get a table at the window, you´ll get a great view on the city! If you have enough time and the weather is reasonable good, I recommend taking the train up to the Uetliberg, local mountain (or rather hill for Swiss standards) of Zurich. You´ll get another great view on the city, the lake plus the alps and it has a nice restaurant up there as well.

Enjoy LSZH!

Hard to recommend any good hotel deals in Zürich, as the price level in Switzerland is generally rather high.

However, for good local food, head down to Zeughauskeller Zürich :: Home, Wurstspezialitaeten, Paradeplatz, Zuerich, Restaurant, Mittagsmenue which is just off Paradeplatz.

Hotel in the middle of town by the tram station, opposite the railway station is the Central Plaza.

Quite a lot of good eating to be had one level below ground at the railway staion, mainly lunchtime.

As everyone knows, Zurich isn't cheap, but with a bit of research you can get by. I've stayed twice at the Hotel Otter, above a bar/restaurant and each of the rooms is very quirky, but nice, priced way below many of the other hotels, downtown. If you're staying 5days make sure to buy a tourist pass and do lots of breathtaking day trips to various mountain towns, though appropriate clothing will be needed to stay warm! No 'leaves on the line' or 'wrong kind of snow' in Switzerland and the SBB functions like clockwork all year. Have fun!

Central Plaza opposite Train Station has a great "piano bar" very lively at night.....but the Renaissance Tower is really nice and a short Tram Ride into town or a 20min walk......
