When I read reviews on trip advisor I often get suspicious if they sound too good to be true. I rarely write any reviews and stayed at this place almost two months ago but felt, those guys really deserve a heads up.
I stayed one night only (unfortunately). When you book the apartment which is actually more of a hotel suite, you won t get to see anyone. You will get an email with detailed instructions, a code and thats actually all you need. I appreciated the high level of privacy. The apartment itself is absolutely amazing. It is like a huuuuge hotel suite, stunning interior design (I have never ever seen something this nice) and all amenities you can think of. We enjoyed the wellness factor even only for short. There is a sauna that folds out of the wall and a roof top jacuzzi where I would have stayed forever if our flight would have been canceled. Thank you James!
This. Place. Is. Amazing - Stop reading reviews and just book it, we got it at a steal and stayed for one night, we were so upset leaving, you have bundles of space and the other review on this page says it all, service is good via e-mail but you never actually meet anyone, everything is done online (which works for me) but if you're someone who likes being shown things you may need to ask them to arrange a physical showing, the place is beautiful and the location is amazing, walking into the penthouse you enter a code three times which is unique to you, the actual downstairs building is very uninviting and it was surprising when you opened the lift door as what you see is just amazing, great space, jacuzzi which is hot and surrounded by snow which further enhanced the romantic feel. just book this place do not hesitate.
-Only room for improvement I would suggest is the wi-fi needs alot of work, constant drops and at times would not work at all, luckily we had mobile data however if you are here on business and need to access e-mail then you will find yourself frustrated.
-Also I emailed about the security element as there is a downstairs door you can lock, however the lift can be operated at all times and there is no way to lock the actual door into the lift from inside the apartment, anyone who has the code can get in. I think from a security perspective that would give any guests complete peace of mind, I strongly recommend fitting a lock. the response I recieved back from James however was satisfactory and we did feel safe in the apartment, this would have just been the icing on the cake. Take nothing away from this place we had a great time and it is the best apartment we have ever stayed in. 5*
-Some tips for guests - The fireplace is electronic, you need to remove the wood and put the water provided in the cabinet in order for it to work - no water = 2 beeps and nothing.
You can look surprised when you're infront of the beautiful medieval building in the very center of the city (I aussume Switzerland or at least the city of Zurich was founded at this square, its so beautiful). You look surprised when you look at the price tag of the accommodation and the rather old and uninviting entry. There is nobody as it is self-check in. You get up in a tiny elevator and type in your code inside the elevator on your floor. And this is where it happens: Your james bond moment. What hides behind the door is just extreem in any sense. You habe space. Plenty of space. It must be around 200 m2 or a bit less. Imagine it like a huge hotel suite because this is how it feels to stay there. Like your own private luxury hotel suite. It has everything, from luxury treats like ur own roof terrace jacuzzi to an indoor unfoldable klafs sauna. Also there are things that come in quite hany when you're travelling and would like to use the benefits of anapartment like the fully equipped kitchen or the laundry room with washing machine and dryer.
There are huuuuuuge TVs, great entertainment and many many things to explore. The staff is very friendly and helps you litterally 24/7. It was like the best and also most unusual hotel i ever stayed at and I must say: I love it! Will be there again and again.
