The last holiday season, I opted for a European ski vacation, visiting and taking on some of the most impressive slopes in the world. As well, though, I was fortunate enough to stay at some most beautiful and ideal hotels, ones that helped me explore the area conveniently while offering a great place to relax and feel at home, and making the whole vacation that much more memorable.
When in Zurich, Switzerland, I enjoyed a great say at the MGallery Hotel Continental Zürich (formerly Sofitel Zürich), part of the MGallery collection. It instantly provided a real taste of life in downtown Zurich. I was instantly happy with the hotel due to its ideal location, just 5 minutes from the main train station and the shopping area on Bahnhofstrasse.
It is in the heart of downtown Zurich, offering you many places to explore. Get up early in the day and go for a jog or walk along the Limmat River, or visit the fabulous museums and cultural attractions nearby throughout the afternoon. What’s more, it is only a 15-minute drive from Zurich Airport.
The unique, Swiss chalet-inspired decor features throughout the 138 rooms, 2 restaurants, bar, garden and lounge. It is more than just look and location, however. When I visited, the hotel was featuring its renovated urban Swiss rooms. The unique combination of the Swiss chalet-inspired decor and modern comforts including free Wi-Fi reflects the mix of tradition and innovation that is typical of Zurich.
Elegantly furnished guest rooms, 6 premier meeting rooms and 2 gourmet restaurants combined efficiency with luxury, as I could imagine visiting with a bunch of friends and family and finding ourselves perfectly at home here.
When traveling alone, I recommended the Urban Swiss room; it is a modern Swiss Chalet style suite that is perfect if you are getting away on business or pleasure. A very comfortable king size bed, a shower as well as a tub with a separate bathroom and a living, there is plenty of space and good for relaxing and working. High speed Internet, a modern desk, and a coffee maker will help you get started early in the day to get done what is needed before going out and exploring the city.
History and luxury were brought together as I loved my stay at the Hotel Continental in Zurich.
