25hours Hotel Langstrasse, Zurich

by Bruno Marti | 25hours Hotels

About the Hotel

The second 25hours Hotel in Zurich opened in April 2017. The Hotel is located on Europaallee at one of the nodal points in the current urban development project, where the new district runs into the legendary Langstrasse, the traditional district of subculture and revelers. The 170 rooms, restaurant and bar have been designed by the renowned Berlin design team Studio Aisslinger. The crew around head designer Werner Aisslinger created a holistic look under the working title “pocket universe”. Fittingly, the 25hours Hotel Langstrasse sees itself as a miniature cosmos, providing bright new services for a new breed of urban nomads.  The main focus lies on the public areas. The ground floor, comprising lobby, kiosk, restaurant and bar attracts travelers and locals alike. Inspired by pawn shops in the neighborhood, guests have the possibility to pay their accommodation nonmonetary in pieces of art or furniture. The hotel is also host to a regular artist in residence program and invites artists from around the world to work in its in-house atelier.

by Christina Kok | Zurich Airport

About the Hotel

“The Circle” at Zurich Airport will be a destination in itself. Just steps away from the terminal buildings, the new, architecturally striking complex will buzz with life and services. With all the bustle of an international trading center it will become a focal point for business and lifestyle. A newly designed park area will provide recreational area and nature at your doorstep.

“The Circle” covers 180,000 square metres of usable space and will cater to a number of purposes which will generate synergies. It will feature two hotels and a convention centre, international brands and companies, a medical centre and state-of-the-art office space. Fields of art, culture, dining, entertainment and education complete the spectrum.

250 rooms of the representative business hotel Hyatt Regency and 300 rooms of the select service property Hyatt Place cover the range for the traveller looking for business and lifestyle as much as the uncomplicated and practical way of life. Located adjacent to the hotels, The Circle Convention Centre Zurich Airport has space for up to 1500 people in its Convention Hall plus additional 15 venue rooms. It is not only located at the best connected place in Switzerland but offers an extraordinary infrastructure amidst The Circle, right in front of an inspiring park area.

About the Hotel

Bordering the Arosa forest, a lake and only a few minutes’ walk to the nearest ski lift, the Valsana development marks the entrance to Arosa. 

Relocated backwards from the street, three new buildings will arise on the compound of the former Sporthotel Valsana. One hotel with 40 rooms, nine administered apartments with appendant wellness area and a grand restaurant including a big sun kissed terrace with superb mountaintop views as well as 11 holiday flats is planned. In the basement floor of the buildings an onsite shopping arcade, composed of a supermarket, a sports shop and a medical practice centre, complete the mixed use complex. 

The Valsana development, which has a volume of approximately 55’000 m3, built to the highest environmental and energy standards, will have an underground car park and is just a stone‘s throw from the railway station. The luxurious infrastructure and highly desirable location provide the perfect backdrop for a wonderful alpine retreat.  

Featuring an abundance of wood, ornament, stone and light; this brand new hotel complex built in a new „Swiss-Chalet-Style“; fits perfectly into the surrounding of an alpine Village.   

The redesign of the area should become an attractive eye-catcher in the centre of Arosa. The opening of the new building complex is planned for autumn 2017.
