WHAT IS A SERVICED APARTMENT?

With all of the planning that goes into a business trip, exploring the usual hotel options can often seem more convenient. But with the lack of tailored location focus and unavailability of rooms – especially in Zurich – many hotels don’t cater to your full requirements which are mandatory. The combination of amenities, hotel services and privacy available with an apartment are second to none, with a lot of other benefits to unravel, including:

Privacy and space. Differing to a hotel room which has a generic layout and restricted space, a serviced apartment offers complete privacy and allows you to relax after hours in your own private and separate space. There is a kitchen area in every apartment in our portfolio, so preparing food after hours is completely feasible.

Luxury facilities. Booking with SilverDoor offers you an array of properties that offer luxury services and features. Each apartment differs, but many host similar advantages such as an on-site fitness suite, concierge services and housekeeping services. All of these benefits not only help you settle into your travels but encourages a well-balanced variety to your stay.

WHAT DO I NEED TO KNOW ABOUT STAYING IN ZURICH?

Weather

The climate in Zurich is particularly warm and temperate, although there is a prominent amount of rainfall throughout the year, including January which tends to be the driest month of the year.

The best time to visit the city is typically June and August when temperatures settle, however the hospitable climate can cause flight prices to rise, making it an expensive season to visit.

Culture and customs

Littering

The Swiss city is particularly immaculate and this is due to Zurich’s policy on littering. The city is deemed so clean that it’s quite common for locals or travellers to fill their water bottle with water from Lake Zurich or one of the city’s fountains.

Currency

Switzerland differs to other European countries, in that it doesn’t use the euro for currency exclusively. Whilst euros are accepted as payment, change will be given in francs and Swiss francs is the most common currency in Zurich.

Language

Although Switzerland as a city has four official languages (German, French, Italian and Romansh) the majority of residents in Zurich tend to speak German with small amounts of French dialect. It is recommended to come acquainted with a German phrasebook or dictionary just in case.

Tipping

Switzerland doesn’t require visitors to tip as it is already incorporated in the meal and service price. There may be exceptional services however, and it can be customary to add a small tip by rounding up to the nearest 10 francs.
