25 HOURS HOTEL ZÜRICH WEST

Neighborhood Guide: Zürich West
Sling away the old Swiss stereotypes, because in the former industrial neighborhood of Zürich West in District 5 you’re more likely to spot independent cultural spaces and eclectic design stores than watchmakers or chocolate shops. Add jazz clubs, antique bookshops and graffiti-splattered streetscapes to the melting pot, and you have the perfect setting for the 25hours Hotel Zürich West, a property that places the local environment at the core of its design concept. Here are some of the neighborhood's best spots.
