About the property

Elegant, bright full floor Apt. - 4 Bedrooms, 3 bathooms, near downtown Zurich

House built in 1873, freshly renovated in 2006, elegant, spacious and bright 4-bedroom Apartment on Zurichberg, 2nd Floor, 200 square meters. Apt. has original hardwood floors, a wood-burning stove, piano, full of antiques. The 3 modern bathrooms offer 2 showers, 1 bathtub, washer/dryer, 2 private balconies in the nicest part of Zurich, central to everything Zürich has to offer.

In one of the largest bedrooms we can easily set up a single bed for a total party of 9 adults.

The neighborhood of Hottingen is close to all University Hospitals, the University + ETH, the Art Museum, Bellevue, the Opera House, Lake of Zurich, Botanical gardens, forest, etc.

Always available: 1-bedroom apt. with private entrance, full-bathroom, balcony, eat-in kitchen. This separate studio apartment has a King bed, own balcony looking into the trees, a charming eat-in kitchen with stove, oven, fridge, plenty of dishes, pots, pans, cutlery, basic stock of spices, oils, etc., combined washer/dryer, bright cheery feel. Modern bathroom with walk-in shower, generous sink, bright feel too.

You will not need a car while you are here. You are just a train, bus, boat, bike,cable car or streetcar's ride away from countless points of interest: breathtaking alpine trips, dips into alpen lakes, along Zürich's bustling streets are hundreds of galleries, restaurants, sidewalk cafes, nightclubs, discos, and theaters; visit Zurich's renown concert halls, opera house, zoological gardens, museums, sporting and cultural events followed by dining on swiss specialties.

Located just a 9-min.walk from Bellevue, the lake, the forest, the downtown area. Amazing location.

Take a quick hike up the nearby Uetliberg Mt. which overlooks the whole city and lake of Zürich. You are also a brisk walk down to the crystal clear 30 mile long Lake of Zürich (which can also be circled by bike!), or a quick ride up to the forest and famous Dolder 'wave' pool or ice skating rink for a totally refreshing change from the fast pace. Bargain shop along Zurich's Bahnhofstrasse, Europe's most exclusive shopping mile.

An elegant apartment in a house built in 1873, 120-year old hardwood floors, generously large rooms, comfortable bed with king-sized pillows, a balcony for two with flowers and plants, and a small yard downstairs.

The guest will be torn between staying at home or exploring the culinary and cultural adventures Zurich has to offer.

Zürich can be home base to a wide range of destinations. Two major ski areas within an hour's trip are Hoch Ybrig or Flumserberg. For high alpen skiing areas count a 2-hr. trip. You are three hours from both Verona via Milan and Munich. The Black Forest of Germany, Geneva, the Austrian, French, or Italian boarders are only a trip away, trains generally leaving once per hour. Only 45 minutes to the famous city of Lucerne. In Zürich you are literally situated in the heart of Europe, yet may enjoy the cosmopolitan life the citizens of Zürich cherish!

VERY comfortable apartment in Zurich

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was amazing...spacious and comfortable. It has 2 bedrooms with a 3rd room with a murphy bed. The modern kitchen was a surprise and the living room has a balcony that overlooks a private courtyard. We stayed for 8 days and it was so nice coming "home" from a day of exploring Switzerland! The apartment is on a very quiet street and there are 2 metro stops within a 2 minute walk. We would definitely stay again.

A Excellent Stay in Zurich

  • 5 of 5

We spent 10 days here in September 2015. It was fabulous. The location is excellent - a close walk to trams or the train - which take you everywhere you need to go -and/or a 15 minute walk to the old part of Zurich (with great restaurants), the lake, river, or the main shopping street. It is in a lovely residential neighbourhood, with grocery stories conveniently located nearby. Many of the main tourist sites, including the wonderful Kunstmuseum, are within walking distance. The apartment has everything you would need, including a well equipped kitchen and lovely deck off the large bedroom. Even the bed is really comfortable! The apartment has a lot of space for a one bedroom. We arrived at night, but there were breakfast fixings (eggs, croissants, milk) in the kitchen so we had something to eat the next morning, which was very thoughtful. The owners were very welcoming and helpful - a wonderful source of knowledge about Zurich and the surrounding countryside. All in all, you cannot go wrong with this property. You will not be disappointed!

Great hosts

  • 4 of 5

Steve and Crista were gracious hosts and met us at the train station to give us a ride back to the apartment. We enjoyed getting acquainted with them during our week stay. They made sure we had everything we needed and were helpful with ideas for exploring Zurich. We were there in July, and it was unusually warm for Zurich, but the apartment was always pleasant. The apartment was located in a very nice neighborhood of Zurich. It was also a short walk (a few blocks) to several tram stops with easy access to anywhere you would want to go. It was very close to the University area with many nice markets. Zurich is a beautiful city on a beautiful lake, and we would love to go back some day.

Our "Home" in Zurich

  • 5 of 5

This apartment and the owners made our month in Zurich exactly what we had hoped for. A great location is one thing, but the caring and assistance from the owners, when needed, and the superior equipped and appointed space, all rooms, were what the big difference. We felt at home the moment stepped into the apartment: A mix of antiques, personal touches, art work on the walls, a cozy outside balcony looking into trees and a courtyard, a roomy light filled kitchen, and connectivity via wifi that easily worked, are but some of the highlights here. I especially appreciate the well equipped kitchen. And, it was spotlessly clean. We hope to return more than once. We were comfortable and happy! We rather liked the walk up to second floor as it, and the daily waking in the city, replaced gym time. If raining or in a hurry, the trams, in either direction, are about 4 minutes away. All the services that we needed were close. Highly recommend this apartment.

The place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family of three, with a 14 year-old along, found this an ideal apartment for our 10 days in Zurich. It is all the things other reviewers noted. Especially so the cleanliness, quiet and comfort, spaciousness, and proximity to central Zurich. We would stay there again most definitely. Crista is friendly and as helpful as you need her to be (we were already familiar with the city). There are three flights of stairs. This was not a problem; just good to know.

I wish I could've stayed longer!

  • 5 of 5

First, the owners are SO NICE! Not only were they VERY PERSONABLE and had everything written up in the apartment (how to get on internet, use TV, do laundry, etc.), they did little things that made the place so welcoming and comforting, such as a nice vase full of fresh flowers. But they did not interfere either - great owners! Second, the location is awesome! 2 minute walk to the tram line that goes directly to the city center, or you can walk (walkable in 10-20 minutes, depending on where you want to go). It's also about 1 tram stop outside of the hustle and bustle of the downtown, so you really get the feel of a native. The apartment had all the modern luxuries one would expect and it was kept miraculously! Great art work, great flowers on the balcony, and great balcony. I couldn't have asked for a better situation!
