Re: Which Zurich suburb is the best place to rent?

Hi lalalalalililia,

This reply comes rather late but I only saw your post now. Hope it still helps.

I lived in Eibenstrasse for almost a year before I was able to find a decent accomodation in Zurich (yeap! being a foreigner does not help to get a flat!!)

Eibenstrasse is in an ok area: not too far from the center and with good S-bahn connections to Opfikon. However, it is not very lifely and you will find that S-bahns do not run at the times you want and you'll end up waiting at the station for 20 mins for just a few minutes ride to the center. My advice is to get a second-hand bike and become less dependent on S-bahns!

All in all, it is great for a short accomodation since finding a flat in Zurich can be a real pain in the ass. But it is not the place you want to stay very long.

Enjoy Zurich! It is a great city!!
