Hi All,

I am moving from London to Zurich on 2nd Jan 2016 for work.I am British Citizen of Indian origin. I will be working in Uetlibergstrasse 231, 8045 and initially looking for accommodation for 3 months either sharing or studio apartment. Can anyone please let me know where can I find the short term accommodation?

Also my wife and 3.5 years old son will be joining me after 3 months.so please let me know the place to stay with family. Also it will be useful to know if there in any Indian community in Zurich.

Thanks for your response.

Regards
SC

Re: Place to Stay in Zurich

Welcome to the forum.

I can't really recommend anywhere as I'm not in that part of the country, but have a look at these websites to see what you can find.

www.immoscout24.ch
www.immostreet.ch
www.homegate.ch
www.home.ch

If you just want a room initially then look here:

A Swiss friend of ours just rented their place out on www.airbnb.com for 6mths. This could also be an option for you.

Re: Place to Stay in Zurich

I suggest to book a service apartment initially. I am not sure if you can get into a rental contract before coming here for the places listed in homegate or such. But service apartments you can book easily using credit card.

As Posko suggested, you can try airbnb if you looking for a shared place. It might workout bit cheaper as well if you find the right place.

For long term, suggest Oerlikon & surrounding areas, many Indian expats live there.
You can book your short term accommodation around that area, and it will easier to decide if you like it there or not.
