Map & Directions

Zurich Airport is 20 minutes away by taxi (cost around CHF50), or you can take the number 10 tram (around CHF7) from the airport to ETH/Universitätsspital, a 10-minute walk from the hotel -- the whole journey should take around 40 minutes. Zurich's main train station is a 7-minute taxi ride or a 15-minute trip on the number 6 bus -- get off at Platte and walk around the corner to find the hotel. If you're planning to drive, the hotel has 10 parking spaces at a nearby parking garage -- these need to be pre-booked and will cost around CHF20 per night.

Overview

A small design hotel in Zurich's university district, the Hotel Plattenhof is proof of the city's younger, cooler side, but sticks to tradition when it comes to comfortable beds, a decent restaurant and easy access to the main attractions.

This is Switzerland so, yes, Zurich is clean, efficiently run and dotted with pretty churches, but it's far from dull. It's filled with shops, cafés and dozens of art galleries and museums -- from fine arts at the Kunsthaus to the Museum für Gestaltung (design) and the Beyer (a museum of that most Swiss of occupations, timekeeping). The hotel is around 15 minutes' walk from the city centre, so it's quiet without being remote. Cross the river to explore the Old Town, or (in summer, anyway) head to the lake to cool off at the public swimming areas.

Heading back to the hotel to eat? The restaurant, Sento, is open Monday-Friday for lunch and dinner, and offers Italian classics such as tomato and mozzarella salad, truffle ravioli and veal escalope with marsala -- plus ever-changing art exhibitions on the walls. In summer, you can eat al fresco on the garden terrace. For cocktails or coffee, there's also a bar-lounge area.

Rooms feature sleek, modern design and low futon-style beds -- guests rate these as comfortable, although they may not suit everyone. All 37 rooms offer free Wi-Fi, slippers, robes and hairdryers -- upgrade for rooms with a little extra space.
