Late-night hotel room without reservation in Zurich possible?

Hi, just wondering if there are any such facilities in Zurich where you can get a room at like last minute, say even late at night/early in morning. To be blunt, ever heard of love hotels in Japan/Korea? Anything like that here?

Asking for a friend ; )

Re: Late-night hotel room without reservation in Zurich possible?

I can't claim any experience in finding hotels in an 'emergency situation', but you, er ..., sorry, your friend, could try http://www.accorhotels.com and navigate to Zurich, Switzerland. Accor includes brand like Ibis, Novotel etc. and include airport hotels.
Incidentally, I've just checked and they claim 12 Hotels in or around Zürich available tonight for 1 night from SFr. 99.-

Of course! You can walk into any hotel that's open in Zurich/Switzerland and ask if the have a room for the night. If they have one, I see no reason why they shouldn't let you have it. They might ask for pre-payment or at least a credit card and some sort of ID mind!

Booking.com are great for finding hotels with good discounts in urgent situations and they have an app for your phone, I've used it, not for what your "friend" needs and it works really well.

You live in Seebach... cant you just get a taxi back there? Or do you want to get back out and hit Caliente right after doing the nasty?

That would be too obvious.
Better ask the question on a forum.

Re: Late-night hotel room without reservation in Zurich possible?

Given the post time, I suspect it might be too late now.

Whatever happened to using the bins round the back of the club? There's just no romance these days.

It is hilarious that someone would even post this thread as opposed to just being discreet and looking for a couple of hotels nearby.
