Monday morning my mom and brother came to visit me in Luxembourg. I picked them up at the train station at 12 and took them around the city before going to class. after class we went to get dinner and then hung out in the room. Tuesday we hung out and went to dinner. Wednesday we went to Trier germany. it should have only taken 45mins to get there …
... now' they were closing for lunch. We took the passports etc. to the reception a little later to be met by a very fierce lady who would not accept our identity cards (every other site we have been to has without any problem - there's always one!) She then explained where the toilets/showers were...not sure what she thought we'd been doing for the past three hours! Then she insisted that we had to have a very small rubbish bag ...
After a long night of deliberation and planning Haydn and I decided to break ranks and head to Zurich Switzerland by ourselves. We had found out on the net that Swiss National Day was 1st August, and for no reason at all we wanted to be there! Lauren, Gregg & Will continued on in the car to Italy and I would catch them up later after leaving Hadyn in Milan to meet up with Angus and Nella.
It was about a 1.5 hour drive to Innsbruck train ...
... br> We bought another one of those bagelly thingo's, which everyone munches on here in Zurich. Everywhere you go, people in trains, trams, walking along streets, are all feasting on them. I called them Bagel Biters. These bagels come in several forms & textures. Kaye thought they were a bit like a Pretzel, but of a slightly softer texture. Some are covered in seeds, some resemble a form of Pizza, some looked donut-like. Any way they are big here, along ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Plattenhof Hotel Zürich
We stayed here for the Easter weekend and really liked the Plattenhof. Our room was very modern and very clean, As some have mentioned, a bit of noise from the corridors or adjacent rooms can be heard but it really wasn't a problem. Not enough to keep you awake anyway. The whole place felt quite tranquil to me with very pleasant staff and a nice little bar downstairs to chill out in.
This hotel was swanky, boutique, in a great location. Three tram stops from the city center, in a quiet part of town near the university.
Nice design Hotel in excellent Location
My wife and I love this hotel very much which just two tram station from the central train station and located at a quiet street near the university! it is convenient for you to travel to all view points if you stay there! All Staff are nice and friendly! Beautiful and stylish indoor design with comfortable bed. Futhermore, the breakfast is good! We will stay again!
Great location close tot he city!
We checked in to the Plattenhof late on a Thursday night and were greeted by an extremely cheerful man at the desk. Our room was quite small and basic, but the bathroom was fantastic. Walk in shower!
The Plattenhof is located near the University of Zurich, so fairly quiet at night. However, the hotel's bar is actually a nice place to sit, and the restaurant serves great food (although a little pricey). We could walk into the city within 15 minutes or catch a tram from the nearby stop.
The included breakfast was possibly the best hotel breakfast I have ever had: fresh bread, cheese, eggs and muesli.
I would highly recommend the Hotel Plattenhof to anyone visitng and we will definitely go there again.
i stayed here for 3 nights in March after seeing their website; it reminded me of W in NYC, modern and stylish, but with its own personality. it did not disappoint in person. the hotel is actually quite small, with an exterior that looks like a new york townhouse. the decor is modern and hip, but what i didn't expect, was the zen-like feel (almost like some new age spa); it had a very relaxing, calm quality about it. i found my room nicely sized, with a huge bathroom in black tile and open shower, and a vestibule/hallway separating the two once inside (that is, the bedroom & bathroom each had their own doors that close -- though i think that was one of the few rooms that had this). other features included the 12 feet high ceilings, 2 large windows with ceiling to floor sheer white curtains, and a low platform bed (some kind of memory foam) with down comforter and pillows (all in white), closet, TV, and desk. the spa-feel was completed with the robe, scented tealights, bottle of Evian, and scented toiletries that remind me of peonies. the staff is quite young (all looked in their 20's) and very friendly, with none of the pretention that one'd expect in a place like this. Plattenhof is in a somewhat residential neighborhood, so it was very quiet at night (except for some church bells, though they're far away). take Tram 6 from Hauptbahnhof, and it's only 4 or 5 stops (roughly 10min); the hotel is less than a block from the Platte tram stop. i thoroughly enjoyed my stay and would not hesitate booking at the Plattenhof next time i'm in Zurich.
We chose the Plattenhof as a reasonably-priced option for a weekend break in this lovely city. Our concerns about its situation, a good 15 minute (uphill) walk from the centre of town, were allayed by the excellent tram service, with a stop just 200 metres from the hotel.
Nice hotel, excellent value, great location
Great value, centrally located, quiet, friendly staff. Also liked the coffee shop and Italian Senso restaurant which is part of the hotel. Excellent breakfast with fresh fruit, authentic muesli, great selection of Swiss cheeses and breads.
Reasonable Choice and Value for Money
A bit tricky to find but situated close to the University Hospital. about 15 minutes walk to the city centre.
Friendly staff, modern minimalist design, rooms are nice and clean with LCD screen TV. Has an italian restaurant on site, adequate continental breakfast buffet on offer.
Stayed here for two nights at the end of July. Excellent value at 250 SFr a night for design room with queen bed with breakfast included for two. Small ensuite shower, loo and wash hand basin. Very clean and with minimalist design. Situated in University district - only about 5/10 minutes walk to edge of the Old Town and block away from tram service nos 5/6 to Railway Station. Buffet breakfast with a good selection of fruit and delicious meusli served in Santo restaurant which forms part of hotel. Both nights were warm so needed to have windows open. The area is very quiet except for the church clock bells which sound each quarter hour so ear plugs needed if you are a light sleeper.
Very quiet boutique hotel
This charming hotel offers an oasis to all travellers. This newly opend desing hotel is located in the very quiet university district. Everything is within walking distance. The hotel staff is out of this world. A welcome teas is offerd to all arriving guests. The italian restaurant Sento is famous for its fresh cuisine and the award winning wine list.
