My review of the “25hours” hotel in Zurich, Langstrasse
I had the honor of being invited in Zurich, Switzerland to review the 25hours Hotel Langstrasse, this 4-star hotel of the famous 25hours Hotels chain (The 25hours Hotels are 9 hotels located in iconic cities : Paris, Florence, Dubai, Zurich, etc.).
They own 2 hotels in Zürich, mine is located in a cosmopolitan area.
It is a 14-minute walk from Zurich Train Station and 1 km away from the luxury shops of the famous Bahnhofstrasse, the Swiss-style Champs Elysées.
Switzerland ? A first for me, and I’m completely charmed, especially when I learn that bikes and MINI car courtesy are available to residents of the hotel for 24 hours! That’s awesome! There is also a chic restaurant serving Middle Eastern cuisine, which also serves a breakfast buffet, a cozy bar, a sauna, a gym and a lounge with a record player and games. Many evenings festivities take place within the bar area, the place is ultra trendy, modern and at the same time very chic!
The industrial theme of the ground floor continues with polished concrete floors, raw concrete ceilings and painted concrete walls. The spaced details add warmth to the room : a metal pole suspended above the bed was decorated by toys, design magazines and reading lamps, giving a Stranger things vibe to the bedroom. The rooms are compact and included in the private bathroom, mine with a bathtub (I love it). The room has bay windows with “sofas seats” on the windowsills, overlooking the tracks of the Zurich train station. I am afraid to hear the sound of the trains, but in the end I sleep very well.
The rooms and bathrooms of the hotel 25hours Langstrasse in Zurich
True to the 25hours brand, the rooms are thematic. The room’s decorative palette is adorned with vintage kitsch items like 1970s toys, golf caps with tinted visors, coloring books, colored pencils, a Polaroid camera. Large, extremely comfortable beds are available. As in the other 25hours hotels, there is also a collection of original signs to hang on your door as of “Do Not Disturb”, connected to a spiral, which allows you to choose a spiritual motive for housekeeping (very fun and absolutely unique). It feels good in this room. This is a fun place, particularly suited to young urban travelers who are venturing more and more to Zurich knowing that this goes beyond stereotypes, the hotel is gay friendly, a plus!
The breakfast of the hotel 25hours Zurich Langstrasse
It reigns a happy atmosphere, very creative. A whirlwind that takes you away and makes you feel more alive. High places of life, the Bar Cinchona, in the basement, and the NENI restaurant, which serves oriental cuisine, are very popular from Zurichers. This restaurant serves breakfast. On the menu, a rich sweet and savory breakfast buffet, and share plates inspired by the Middle East – hummus, falafel, sabich, salads but also a lot of sweet pastry. There is something for everyone, it’s a treat.
The sauna and the gym of the hotel 25hours Zürich Langstrasse
Everything is simple at the 25hours Langstrasse Hotel. The atmosphere is relaxed and chill. It feels like living in a microcosm, a world apart where borders are abolished between customers. On the seventh floor (top floor), the “Saunas Trainspotting” has a window that overlooks the railway (another “Surprise”) and also allows you to see the city and the mountains from the outdoor terrace. The small fitness room with several cardio machines also offers panoramic views. The view of the tracks can be surprising if you do not like trains, but I think it gives a charm to the hotel.
