Nice things to do in Zurich?

Does anyone know a nice place to stay for a weekend in Zurich? My friend and I want to visit Zurich and see the city. Any good hotels to recommend? We search for something special or something that people know as good. What about fitness and spa? do you have nice spas in zurich?

I for one am confused. Your location says you are in Zurich - and yet you want to visit Zurich for a weekend. Have you looked at the SBB.ch website

Re: Nice things to do in Zurich?

Zurich has one public spa: http://www.thermalbad-zuerich.ch/ but its awfully crowded on the weekends, its best to go after 17.00. The roof pool is great at night when its cold and the views are amazing

You also have the Dolder Hotel but this is beautiful but pricey. You may even get to see Tom Jones in the steam room.

Yes, it's not unusual for him to be there.

Re: Nice things to do in Zurich?

As an alternative to the Hürlimann spa, this one here is pretty nice too, though also crowded on weekends (as are all others): http://www.asia-spa.com/en/

Or either of the following (though at least Stockerhof is a bit less fancy than the above) :
http://www.fitnesspark.ch/muenstergasse/
http://www.fitnesspark.ch/stockerhof/
http://www.fitnesspark.ch/puls5/


Hotel recommendations are endless and plenty of special and good places, but an indication on budget is needed here...

Alternatively to ther thermalbad zuerich, you could go to Asia Spa @ Sihl City or to the Hamam in Niederdorf.

EDIT: Samaire13 was faster, sorry for "double post"
