vision apartments - short term rental

Hello Everyone


Firstly I would like to say hello to everyone.

My wife and I will be coming to Zurich at the end of this month
and we are wondering if anyone has stayed with vision apartments.
We were thinking of booking with them for a short term rental.

any experiences would be appreciated.

thank you
Anwar

Re: vision apartments - short term rental

hi Answar,

My husband and I have are moving to Zurich in less than 15 days and we still have not found a place to stay.
We therefore visited short term rentals offered by Vision. We were extremely disapointed: first, it is very small, very expensive, and asking for a large "caution". There are also renovating one of their building you cannot open your room's windows....

Best of luck,
G.

Re: vision apartments - short term rental

I used them from March to June this year.
Apartment was okay, small and very noisy location, but well located above a nice Thai near Goldbrunnenplatz! (you cannot have it all when there is not much choice).

Vison's administration is DIABOLICAL, DIABOLICAL, DIABOLICAL. Unless I was desperate I would not use them again.

Unfortunately, as you are probably finding out short term, furnished apartments in Zuri are like rocking horse sh1t or just damn expensive.

Re: vision apartments - short term rental

Watch out for Vision!

I also had a similar experience with them. If you don't like the flat, don't take it...negotiate and put your foot down, sometimes, by magic, a new place will be available.

Good luck!

Re: vision apartments - short term rental

thanks for all the help and good information.

Just to let you know, we did find a place for short term rental and I'm happy it was not vision. We went to see a vision apartment in Oerlikon and the lady was so nice to us. The apartment was under renovation from the outside so you couldn't see out any windows. She promised us that the renovations would be done before we moved in. We saw the apartment several weeks after the proposed move in date and guess what....still under renovation.


thx
Anwar

Re: vision apartments - short term rental

Hi I plan to be in Rolle/Nyon in Jan 1st week and I am also looking for a temporary accomodation for about a month. My relocation agent has suggested Residence du Midi in Lausanne which I think is not good for my family. Has anyone used this. If some one can suggest a good 3.5/4.5 Rooms apartment in Rolle/Nyon/Gland it would be a great help. Some of my friends in nearby area can come and finalize the deal.

Re: vision apartments - short term rental

Hi Anwar,

I visited some VisionAG apartments when I first arrived in Zurich and was looking for some temporary accomodation. lets just say, the pictures online look much better than the real thing! Overpriced in my opinion.

We found temporary accomodation with another company (Swissflats AG) which was pretty reasonable and the person in charge, Joel is a genuinely nice bloke. Nothing was too much trouble for him. Good luck in your search and let me know if you want his contact!

Re: vision apartments - short term rental

Hi everyone!

I will be moving with my partner to Zug at the begining of the year and we are looking for a temporary apartment to live while we find a permanent one. I have visited all the web pages you recommended, even the ones related only to Zug (Zug4you, TourismZug), but apparently there is not so much in Zug itself.

I was wondering if any of you had a good recommendation?! Or if you know of someone that is willing to rent an appartment on a short term basis..

Thanks a lot in advance!

Vision Apartments - Zurich - any feedback?

Dear all,

I'm going to move to Zurich next month. For first months, I'm looking for a short-term solution.. I'll search a new apt from September.
I'm evaluating a Vision Apartment, a Junior Flat in Binzmühlestrasse.. anyone has experience on it? Unfortunatly I've not the opportunity to see the apt before my move and, if possible, I would like to understand if there are critical issues, somehow...

Thanks, guys!
Luigi

Which building were/ are you staying in. I stayed with them for two months in Wolframplatz, and had no problems. The rooms were a bit small, but for a short-term assignment it wasn't bad.

To be fair, things might have changed in the seven years since that written.

Hello.

I had a friend who was a tenant there and beside the fact that the apartment was small he had no particular issues with the apartment . Have fun in Zurich

Re: vision apartments - short term rental

I agree, I also rented an apartment in Vienna. First and foremost, they lack customer service, a smile and a way to make you feel welcome. Offering a welcome drink and feeling welcome is generally what we first remember when we look back.
I stayed in Vienna and I must say the most important part for me is a good nights rest, so with that said, the beds were very old and too soft, as though sinking into a waterbed. Pillows were stained and the bathroom towels need to be renewed. If they claim to be a luxury company, they have a long way to go in order to train their employees and make sure that the residence is impeccable .

Re: vision apartments - short term rental

We stayed in the Vision Apartments near Silnau/Stauffacher for a month and a half when we first arrived. It was small and basic, but comfy enough for two people.

The only problem we had was on departure, they claimed we had cracked an acrylic side table. But after we pointed out there was no proof it was us and that it could have been the cleaners, they gave us our deposit back in full.

Overall, it was fine for a short term stay, just don't expect too much.
