We've had 8 hours sleep! Yep, that's right, we've actually been in bed for a sensible amount of time! And boy did we need it!
We didn't book breakfast with our room in the hotel, so after waking we started our day with peppermint tea & Jaffa Cakes. It seemed to do the trick. We showered and dressed & headed out to …
... 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 ...
... lovely day filled with Lindt bunnies, red wine and special people.
After watching the snow fall all day on Sunday, Matt and Alex headed off for a snowbaord session on Monday (a lovely, sunny day). Matt got home that afternoon wet, tired and with the biggest smile on his face I've seen in a while. He promises a post dedicated to ...

The next day, we traveled to an elevation of over 1,000 meters up in the nearby alps and saw a lot of snow, and a beautiful lakes with crystal clear water surrounded by beautiful mountains.
... drink? Not happy Sweden. It’s probably just as well, because when we weren’t eating cheese or chocolate, we spent the rest of the time drinking tap water and eating other people’s leftover pasta. When you’re charged CRF 5 (about AUD$7) for a cup of ****** coffee, you tend to lower the standards... as if they already weren’t low as backpackers. We did a boat cruise up the river, out to the more remote, mountainous part of Luzern (where ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Park Inn by Radisson Zurich Airport Rumlang
This hotel was a wonderful choice. We had a group of seven who needed accommodation for a one afternoon/night stop over in Zurich. We did not want to spend a lot and found a great deal on expedia for 2 double queen rooms for $277! The helpful woman at the front desk even gave us a family room which had 2 separate bedrooms.
Myself and my friend spent 2 nights at this hotel. It was very clean and the rooms were fantastic. Staff were very friendly. Breakfast they have served was basic though but at acceptable level...
Overall, its suitable for singles, couples and even familiers...
Our long weekend in Zurich was supposed to be a Valentine's break for 4 (my husband and I and my brother and wife) but when my brother announced that the terrific deal he has secured through Expedia included accommodation in the Park Inn (an Ex-McDonald's hotel and within shouting distance of the airport to boot), we were sceptical to say the least and our romantic break looked set to be more like a stopover for a businessman on a budget. Yes, the Park Inn is near the airport (so much for wandering out of the front door into downtown Zurich) and yes, it's an ex-McDonald's hotel with a McDonald's restaurant right beside the main entrance, but leave your prejudices aside because it's immaculate, it's funky, the staff are outstanding and we'll be back! Because we got such a good deal (flights from Heathrow and 3 nights accommodation for £150 per person), we decided to splash out and stay in another hotel in the centre of Zurich for our middle night. Suffice to say we felt a real sense of homecoming as we returned to the Park Inn for our final night - the seriously comfy beds, the red curvy walls, the amazing round shower in the bedroom! Stay here - you will not be disappointed. And bring the kids because they even have seriously cool family rooms.
I can highly recommend this Hotel as a stop over before or after a flight. It is very near the airport, but very quiet. We arrived there late at night as our flight had been delayed and we had to collect a hire car. The Hotel was easy to find, the McDonalds next door was still open so we were able to have something to eat. The Hotel staff were very friendly and welcoming, even late at night! Our room was a very pleasant surprise. The were very well designed, bright and modern. The beds are fantastic, we enjoyed playing with the remote control to raise and lower the bed. The shower was brilliant and a very good design, it is a pod in the room. We enjoyed our stay there which left us refreshed and ready for our weekend trip. Fantastic value for money, with breakfast included. I would definitely stay there again.
Fun and convenient, but unreliable shuttle
Stayed one night at Park Inn in late June 2004 with a special AAA rate. Excellent price for level of amenities, including breakfast buffet. Hotel is funky and pleasant, and rooms have more than all mod cons. Staff was helpful, but misadvised us about airport shuttle. Told us we did not have to reserve a space on shuttle for AM trip to airport and when we arrived for the 7:40 a.m. shuttle were rudely told by driver to get off overloaded van. Had to order a cab to meet our plane. Overall, the hotel is probably a good one, but needs to take more trouble over details.
We stayed at this hotel last July. Our room was fine, clean, roomy, very nice. However, our son and his wife's room was on the other side (river side) of the hotel and had lots of big spiders on the walls. After speaking with the management, evidently they had been having quite a problem with spiders on that side of the hotel. They made no effort to help or offer assistance. Very disappointing.
Would not stay there again!
Great ..love the showers
great hotel ....modern,clean ...its now call parkinn but still loads of macds bits ...great bus service as well to the airport and the showers are so coool try it even if its 4 one time
This hotel was one of the most pleasant hotels we had. It's clean, comfortable, climate-controlled, affordable and has all the ameneties one could ask for. It's connected to the McDonalds restaurant so the kids should be pleased. It also has a real restaurant for the older people. The underground secured parking and free luggage carts was also a big plus. Its location is about 5 minutes from the Zurich airport which is especially nice for the last night's stay before an early flight. We also booked on the internet, but found out about a cheaper rate for travellers. We had no problem with switching the rate. The staff is top-notch and eager to help.
A Unique Experience
The golden arches are everywhere! We loved the sit and sleep-style beds and very modern amenities. The shower is part of the guest room so it's not for the shy! The hotel restaurant is very expensive but the on-site McDonald's is an inexpensive alternative. The free airport shuttles are frequent and convenient. We booked on the internet but then found the rates were cheaper upon arrival. We had to fight for it but we managed to have our rate lowered to the current special. They offer free internet service from their business centre. It's a truly unique experience!
Sleeping inside McDonalds
McDonalds transformed their restaurant concept into a hotel. The colors and arches are everywhere. The rooms were clean and simple but had everything a businessperson mght need. The room had a wireless keyboard so you can access the internet using the TV set, as well as electric beds that recline using a remote control. It is definitely different than the regular hotel room you've come to expect. You don't feel you're in Europe though.
