You can never have enough of addresses of good hotels to stay in Zurich. So let me add another to your list. It is the Marktgasse Hotel, recently reopened after two years of careful restoration. I was invited to celebrate the event with an overnight stay.
I checked into a spacious low-ceiling room that overlooks the pretty cobblestone street. The interior is a mix of conserved historic details and modern eclectic designs. Instead of a standard guided tour of the rooms, the hotel arranged to have open rooms, each with a short musical performance in the form of a classical or jazz piece. Musique de chambre takes on a whole new meaning! One small room in particular enticed me – it has stairs that lead to a big terrace with a splendid view of Zürich (a night shot above).
Before heading back early to Lausanne the next day, I took time to enjoy breakfast at their “Delish Café” (also open to non-guests). The buffet spread was generous and I took a copious fruit bowl and chocolate croissant.
If you are looking to stay in a charming offbeat boutique hotel on your next trip to Zurich, put Marktgasse Hotel in your shortlist.
