Experience –We booked this hotel just an hour before check in. We already had booking at Murren (Near Interlaken – South of Zurich) but during the day, we were at “Aescher” which is north of Switzerland. Do check our experience of Aescher in our page. It’s a MUST DO activity!
So After our dinner we were supposed to drive to Murren village but when we called Hotel to inform about our late arrival, they advised that we will miss our last cable line. Now Murren is roughly 270 Kms away from Aescher. Remember, there are lots of car free villages in Switzerland and you have set time table for Cable lines. Please do check with your Hotel if you are staying in car free village. As we realised we are late for our hotel and we probably have lost our reservation which was pre-paid, we decided to book Hotel in Zurich. When it comes to last minute Hotel booking and you do not have enough time to do research, then Marriott is my trustworthy brand so we chose “Renaissance Zurich Hotel”. We booked this Hotel at 2130hrs while driving and reached hotel around 2230hrs. We were just there for nice comfortable sleep and glad we booked this. Perfect WI-FI (don’t forget we work from home so we usually have to work for 4-5 hrs, after our day outing so good WI FI is very important). They have open car parking which was perfect for our SUV with roof rack. Parking is right in front of the Hotel. This Hotel charges you for WI-FI (EUR 30) and Car parking (EUR 30) but Reception guy was extremely kind. He did not charge us for WI FI as well as for CAR PARKING 🙂 Wohoooo!!!
Hotel is in perfect location (Zurich west quarter) which 10 mins from downtown. Rooms were extremely spacious and had great panoramic views. They have lovely restaurant and Bars (not that we spent any time but I did had a walk around so I can put down on my review page) & they definitely looked lovely.
From airport, it will cost you roughly CHF 60.00 one way to get to Hotel so you may want to get Subway for CHF 7.00 approx. one way.
I would definitely recommend this Hotel if you are around Zurich. Best thing is to book in advance so you can get Non-refundable rate (Advance purchase rate of CHF 195 per night) and save little bit.
Near By Attractions – If you have time, you MUST visit Aesche, Lake Zurich, Old Town, Swiss Museum, Zoo Zurich, Bahnhofstrasse are quiet nearby. You can also plan a day trip to Mount Titlis.
Applause Moment – WI-FI was very good. I must say we had best WI-FI experience in Switzerland. Would you believe we hiked few mountains and we had 4G network on top of the mountains and in cable cars in Switzerland. How awesome is that!!!
