The room is in our cool and charming flat located in the heart of the multicultural district of Zurich (Kreis 4), 15 min on foot from train station, surrounded by nice restaurants and cafes and very close to a beautiful park. It has wooden floors, a balcony, and fits 2 people. We are happy to share all the rest of the flat with you and provide suggestions to what to do in Zurich.
The flat is on the second floor of an old house in Zurich multi-ethnic, multi-cultural district (Kreis 4). The bedroom is large, with a handmade arvenwood wardrobe that makes the room smell of mountain wood, a double bed and plenty of space.
We are happy to share with our guests the other spaces of the flat. The living room is a large luminous space with plenty of comfortable armchairs, two large tables, plants and all our books. It has old wooden floors, creaking and bright.
The kitchen is small but fully equipped with dishwasher, oven, kettle etc. We love cooking and you are welcome to use it to cook. Francesca is vegetarian and would appreciate not having too much meat cooking smell around :).
The bathroom has a bathtub and shower, black and white tiles.
Zugang für Gäste
We rent this room when we are at home (and the entire flat when we travel). We are happy that guests enjoy our flat, as we have often done while travelling the world with Airbnb.
You are welcome to use all the spaces as long as you respect it, as this is really our flat, where we live and where all our things are, it is not a commercial operation.
We go around by bike in Zurich (which we love) and we have a spare bike guests can use if they take care of it and lock it properly.
You will have your own set of keys for the flat.
Interaktion mit Gästen
We normally rent this room when we are at home but travel a lot. We both work at ETH Zurich, the main federal University in Switzerland. Francesca is since February 2015 working between Zurich (ETH) and Newcastle, UK, so she travels a lot. If you rent the room, we will welcome you in person. We are happy to chat with our guests, getting to know them some, suggesting places to eat and go and see in this city we love, but we also understand that guests need their own privacy when travelling. The flat is at 15 min walk (20 if you are slow ;) ) from the station and we will provide instructions how to get there.
We can also provide suggestions for what to do in Zurich and in the area. We have been living in Zurich for 15 years, and have been living in the same Kreis 4 for almost all this time except for a one year break in the earth of the old town. The old-town flat is the one for which we have all our other reviews.
We speak English, Italian, French, German and Spanish.
Weitere wichtige Infos
We do not have a TV (see under Amenities). We have had a bad experience with an aged couple being very disappointed by this, so I write it now clearly also here.
No smoking in the flat but possible on the balcony. Pets are not allowed. Please remove your shoes in the flat, thanks! This is our flat, where we live and that we like a lot. We expect guests to respect it and take care of it, while enjoying it as much as possible.
