25 Hours Hotel Zurich WestThe 25hours brand is known for its playful take on the hotel experience, and this Zurich establishment follows suit. With an interior concocted by local designer Alfredo Häberli, the space features the usual mix of colorful, offbeat furnishings, slick design, and casual friendliness, as well as the cute touch of Häberli’s personal city tips scrawled on various surfaces.
The rooms and suites are separated into categories of silver, gold, and platinum to reflect the city’s banking-capital status. That’s as corporate as it gets, however, since the interiors are decidedly funky, with bold colors, quirky carpets and artwork, and angular work desks. The hotel also offers a restaurant, living room and business lounge (with iMac workstation and free Wi-Fi), plus an in-house kiosk that stocks everything from necessities (shampoo and toothpaste) to accessories (Freitag bags).

A Fun & Funky Stay in Zurich West
Zurich has no shortage of posh hotels, many of which are situated along its main shopping street Bahnhofstrasse. This 126-room property breaks from the mold with its relatively low rates and trendy Zürich West location just a few blocks away from the art galleries in the Prime Tower and Löwenbräukunst complex. Local designer Alfredo Häberli has outfitted the hotel with playful allusions to the city (colorful replicas of Zurich’s churches decorate the lobby, hand-drawn coats-of-arms adorn the walls) and 60 of his own design items, including his Jill chair for Vitra.

The opening of a branch of the hypercool 25hours hotel mini-chain is a breath of fresh air in this clean yet stoic financial hub. Designed by native son Alfredo Häberli, the hotel location might seem a tad off, but trust me—Zurich West is the future of Zurich.
