Hotels that has rooms with kitchen?

Hi, we're planning another trip to Zurich in April with the kids this time. We
need a hotel that has a suite with kitchen for 1 week. I'm having a hard
time finding one.

I also looked at the furnished rental apartments like City Apartments, PABS,
and Apartment Swiss Star.

City - the lady told me they cannot book that far in advance and that most
of their apartments are under "open contract".

PABS - Minimum stay is 2 weeks. I only need it only 1 week.

Swiss Star - same story as City. All full and cannot book that far in advance.

This is not our final move; it's only one week for my wife to really check
things out. I guess the nature of the short term furnished rentals is that
it is open ended until the resident finds a permanent place so they can't
book that far in advance.

Hotel rooms with kitchen or other vacation rentals seems to be my only
choice. Can somebody point me to some more web sites or even travel
agents (if those still exists!) that can help us out?

Thanks,

DavidSJC

Re: Hotels that has rooms with kitchen?

My Hubby stayed at the Hilton serviced apartments in Kloten for a few months last year. They had one double room, living area with sofa bed and kitchen. There was also a laundry room onsite and a courtesy mini bus which took you too the airport in 2 minutes. I wouldn't say it was 5 star but it was clean and with the train station at the airport you could travel wherever you wanted too.

Hope you find something!

Bye C

Re: Hotels that has rooms with kitchen?

When we first arrived we stayed in an apartment hotel in Oerlikon which had a small kitchen. Not a very nice area but it was cheap for Zurich and had good transport connections.The rooms were available for a week.

Good Luck.

Re: Hotels that has rooms with kitchen?

I think there is a Best Western close to the airport which also has apartments...

Re: Hotels that has rooms with kitchen?

Many camping sites have mobile homes or chalets to rent. Not too cold in April,

Re: Hotels that has rooms with kitchen?

hi DavidSJC--have you thought about putting an ad up here for something like a flat exchange, or to use someone's place while they're away on holiday (like I am in April)?

Re: Hotels that has rooms with kitchen?

The link below is for vacation apartments which should fullfill your needs. They are usually owner-rented - thus the fewo-direkt concept. I have been happy and am increasingly choosing this over hotels; which cost the same or a lot more, but less space. The money-does-not-matter business people have not inflated these prices....yet.

Re: Hotels that has rooms with kitchen?

I know this is very OT..but the best extended stay hotel I've ever stayed at was the Marriot Residence Inn Hotel in downtown Toronto. I was so amazed by how clinically clean it was...and the staff was very friendly and helpful too.

Re: Hotels that has rooms with kitchen?

This is the german version of homeaway.com! Yes I used them before also
for renting vacation homes here in the States. I'm actually staying in one
cabin I rented through homeaway.com in February up in Lake Tahoe here in
California.

Thanks for the link!

Re: Hotels that has rooms with kitchen?

Yes, since we will be living in Zurich eventually we have to stay there
to check out the city in detail.

I found some good leads on the vacation home rentals posted by
owners on

What I can offer is a short commute, but not in Zürich. Good luck. I know a couple who once rented something through VRBO sight unseen and were very disappointed, so please be careful. Get someone locally to check out the place for you to be sure it bears some resemblence to the photos and description.

Re: Hotels that has rooms with kitchen?

Most hotels offer "family rooms". To live without a kitchen for a week should be quite doable, no?

Re: Hotels that has rooms with kitchen?

Has anyone stayed in a similar place in the Basel region. Building work this summer means it's likely we'll need somewhere for the last two weeks in August. I did look for holiday rentals just over the border but so far I haven't found anything suitable.
Thanks
