Last week, I was in Zurich for a few days to attend the Bobbi Brown presentation of all their Fall 2013 products (I’ll blog about them soon). I stayed at the HOTEL RESTAURANT HELVETIA l while I was there as many of my friends from Zurich and Geneva have recommended me this hotel and now I really understand why. Besides its perfect location (5 minute walk from the famous Bahnhofstrasse, the equivalent of Madison Avenue in New York if you will) and affordable price, it also has a very intimate atmosphere. Zurich has a different energy, it’s completely different from Geneva as it is a much bigger city and a lot more dynamic.
If you ever get the chance to travel to Zurich, I strongly recommend this luxury boutique hotel. The whole staff was extremely attentive and as soon as you walk through the door, you’ll immediately feel at home. The interiors have a Art Nouveau meets Dandy Chic kind of vibe and the rooms have capture the Swissness aesthetic, clean, simple and luxurious. The hotel was completely renovated in 2008 so all the facilites are modern (which is, believe me, very rare in Zurich). It was designed by the renowned Zurich interior designers Atelier Zurich.
Upon my arrival, I had lunch at the hotel’s restaurant, and I enjoyed a delicious Ravioli dish with sundried tomatoes. Seriously to die for. I was staying on the fourth floor, overlooking the city and my room was really impeccable. And wait, this is not it. You know my love for Kiehl’s products, so I was really excited to find out that the bathroom were equipped with their finest products! I couldn’t be happier.
So here are some pictures that I wanted to share with you. As you may have notice, I’m trying to incorporate more of these type of posts posts wherever I go. Sharing is caring!
Thanks again to the Helvetia staff for making my stay so pleasant, I really had a delightful time and I hope to be back soon…
