Combo” projects are definitely in vogue at Accor. After the opening of an ibis and ibis budget hotel in London Heathrow, the French group has just unveiled another project involving two of its brands, this time in Zurich. For this project in the Swiss business metropolis, the combination is not, as in the British capital, economy and super-economy, but a contemporary hotel at an affordable price and for long stays. The ibis Styles and Adagio brands have been integrated into a single complex located in the heart of Zurich and just a ten-minute walk from the main railway station.
Opened on 18 October, the complex includes an ibis Styles which, as always, has been themed
with a design concept revolving around the optical illusion, notably thanks to works designed by the artist M. C. Escher. In addition to its 202 standard and family rooms, the hotel has a Yuka restaurant, a bar and a gym. For business meetings, travelers can choose from three conference rooms of 24 and 42 m2 that can accommodate up to 25 people.
For extended business stays, or for travelers who want more space and amenities, the complex also features an Adagio Aparthotel with 64 self-catering apartments, including 28 studio apartments for two people, 16 twin studios and 20 two-room apartments for four people, all with a separate work area and a living room with sofa bed.
In terms of services, the urban residence offers the classics of long-stay hotels, such as a laundry and cleaning service if necessary, and a fitness studio to keep in shape. However, it is worth noting the presence of a restaurant and a bar on the sixth floor of the establishment, whose terrace offers panoramic views of the city.
While the ibis Styles plays on the optical illusion, the Adagio has given itself a Scandinavian atmosphere, with interior architect Nicolas Thermed drawing inspiration for his design concept from the “hygge style”. This is an atmosphere of well-being that originated in Norway and Denmark, but which also fits the Swiss metropolis, often ranked among the best cities in the world in which to live.
I’m Michelle, and I love to travel. As a former hotel expert for one of the world’s largest hotel chains, I’ve stayed in nearly every type of room imaginable (including many that were not so desirable!). Nowadays, I am fortunate enough to be able to explore the world on my own terms. From international flights to learning different languages, there is nothing too far out of reach!
