- What's Included
Comfortable hotel conveniently placed nest to kinderspital, University hospital and University. Large rooms, reasonable wifi (5mbs up/download), rich breakfast.Only caveat bed height is quite low (futon-style).
The Plattenhof Hotel is a quaint, pleasant boutique hotel in the university area. Given it's location, it's definitely feels like you are in a local neighborhood than a more touristy part of the city. That being said, you can walk (or catch a tram) and be in the center of it all in about 10 minutes. The hotel staff were all warm, welcoming and accommodating.The rooms are quite nice, with a nice swiss feel to them... tasteful decor, but not overdone. The pillows and duvets were lovely, and the overall design modern without being cold or austere. The bathrooms were nice, though the sink is outside the bathroom (at least in my room), and the towel warmers are a nice touch!I was there on a Sunday, so the only issue with the hotel/location is that there is not much open in the immediate vicinity, so you'll have to venture out for food or snacks. (And while I was there, there was a lovely Christmas market in the Opera square that had great food, drink and shops).
This is a tranquil oasis very near to the university campus and great retreat from a busy day. Lovely continental breakfast, comfortable bed and duvet, and extremely kind and helpful staff. There is a place for snacks adjoining the lobby as well as the dining room. I can’t click the ratings on my iPad but would give it top marks throughout.
If you are want a room that is not of the usual boring corporate hotel style then this hotel might well be for you. Further the staff at the hotel are uniformly helpful and kind. Definitely will stay there again. The only downside side if you are traveling for business and need to work at the desk is that it is at a quite awkward height. Even with that it still gets five stars from me.
I had high expectations after studying the website. The reality was not ... really at the same level: special lighting for atmosphere? Design, yes but not high-level. Bed OK but not more. Bathroom quite limited. Breakfast OK without anything special. The experience that you often have from not-cheap hotels that you would like their furniture in your own house was here absolutely not the case, what should not be possible for a "design" hotel. But yes, isn't everything in Switzerland terrible expensive for what you get?
