THE ESSENTIAL

Inaugurated in March 2012, this 60-room, four-story property was conceived by Turicum Hotel Management Group, based in Switzerland, as the first of a new brand of small urban hotels with an unusual location. It occupies three buildings that once formed the main facilities of the Hürlimann brewery, which in 1880 was the largest in Switzerland.

In what was once the mashed house, there is now an expansive lobby with extravagant details such as luxurious two-tone chairs girdled with brown leather belts and, instead of standard coffee tables, stacks of hardback books and coffee boxes. original wood from Hürlimann. Further, 33,000 more books fill the three walls of the Library Lounge of 36 feet high.

LOCATION

In recent years, the 16 acres of the old brewery have been transformed into a cobbled complex of small shops and home to the Zurich campus at Google. It is a 10-minute tram ride from the elegant Bahnhofstrasse shopping street, and from Lake Zurich and its Rentenwiese park.

THE ROOM

My husband and I checked into a 300-square-foot Hürlimann executive room, which, like all the others in the hotel, had a sense of spaciousness thanks to the white gauze curtains, the broad oak plank flooring and a scheme of design that takes clean lines seriously (The phone was hidden in a sliding shelf). However, the extravagant touches were not sacrificed by minimalism; A collection of books was displayed behind the bed, and Tom Dixon’s futuristic brass pendant lights hung from the ceiling. We sleep deeply thanks to two layers of windows (the arched outer window is a remnant of the brewery), blinds that go up and down at the touch of a switch and dark panels.

THE B2 Hotel Zurich BATHROOM

Our small bathroom, with heated glass mosaic floors, had a friendly rain shower with the displays surrounded by three glass walls that looked into the room (and the city, beyond), a sink with ample countertop space and Ada Cosmetics toiletries Green collection made with extracts and oils of organically grown fruits.

The Unusual City Hotel‎

The Zurich thermal and spa bath (25 Swiss francs for hotel guests instead of 55 Swiss francs for non-guests) offers indoor thermal baths installed between the stone walls of the brewery and vaulted ceilings, and a heated outdoor pool on the Roof with spectacular views of the city. The hotel has two conference rooms, one with concrete walls that rise three floors above in a dramatic zigzag pattern.

Breakfast, included in the price of the room, is served in the Library Lounge and local pinchos: gipfeli (Swiss-style croissants) and zopf (a braided bread similar to challah), dense homemade muesli, bacon with herbal spots and air-dried meat from the Grison Alps, cheeses from the Highlands of Zurich and poultry eggs cooked at the time. The lounge also serves an all day menu that, unfortunately, is very limited (there are only a handful of hot dishes).

B2 Hotel Zurich Room Service

In 10 minutes a sandwich of hot chocolate arrived at night and a strudel paste with carrot and hazelnut filling. However, it was not presented on our room’s bill, so we informed the concierge at the time of departure.

BOTTOM LINE

The Library Lounge menu could have an expansion, and the service a bit finer, but the urbanites will be delighted with the pleasant contemporary design, the first-class spa and the sense of history of this luxurious hotel.
