A weekend at Marktgasse Hotel Zurich
It's Thursday,and we are so close to the new weekend, but my mind is still on 2 weekends ago, when I spent the weekend at Marktgasse Hotel, just in the heart of the old town of Zurich.
It was not the first time that I visited this hotel, because I am used to visiting Baltho Küche for dinner, or delish Cafe for lunch, but it was the first time that I had the opportunity to stay at one of their amazing rooms!
This boutique hotel with its 39 individually furnished rooms, two restaurants and a bar is right in the heart of it all. The building from the 15th century can look back on over 600 years of hospitality. Following a comprehensive renovation, the rich stories from the past can still be felt and experienced, such as in the slightly uneven floors. Many of the heritage elements enjoy protected status and have been carefully preserved, resulting in a compelling mix of past history with timeless, eclectic design, full of charm and personality.
Surrounded by winding lanes and centuries of history, just a short walk from top sightseeing highlights, the lake and the main train station, I had the pleasure of staying at one of Zurich’s oldest inns. Following a careful and comprehensive renovation, the hotel offers a compelling mix of timeless eclectic design and tremendous charm and personality!
I stayed at one of their Junior Suites!
Each of the 39 room is unique. Individually furnished with high-quality designer pieces, they all feature different advantages and floor plans – from small and cosy single rooms, up to the spacious Marktgasse Suite. Some rooms contain heritage-protected details such as stucco, wall panelling, tiled stoves or columns. All of the rooms have oak parquet or hard floors and no carpeting. Due to the history of the 15th Century building, one of the first inns in Zurich, some floors are slightly slanted and the ceilings in three rooms on the 4th floor are somewhat lower.
Being a building under protection, the supervisory of monuments and arts wouldn’t allow for the floors to be leveled out. The premium Schramm mattresses ensure a restful night's sleep! Another thing that I really liked was that for daily care needs, they offer exclusive hair and body products from Aesop!
Of course, I couldn't resist to have dinner at the amazing Baltho Küche (see my previous experience here) , and of course to have my Sunday breakfast at my favorite delisch cafe (see my previous experience here ) .
It was an amazing weekend there, and for sure, I am going to visit it again very soon!
