The Hotel Kindli is a lovely property located on a side street of the upscale shopping district of Zurich. It is very near the train station, an easily walk able distance even if you're pulling a sizeable suitcase, as I did. It is a luxury boutique hotel on the small side, but unlike othe reviewers, i did not find the room to be small. Ours was quite commodious and extremely comfortable. On the corner of the hotel, the third floor, we had windows that looked out on to the adjacent streets and a nice view of the surrounding Swiss apartments. there are all kinds of sights to enjoy within walking distance of the Kindli,mincluding Lake Zurich, the center of the Zurich triathlon the day we were there. The neighborhood is also home to some very nice restaurants, including one famous for serving typical Swiss cuisine. I'm sorry I can't recall it's name, but the Kindli staff will know which it is. Excellent sausages and FABULOUS potato salad, all served with big steins and glasses of beer.
The Swiss are famous for their neat and tidy country and the Hotel Kindli expresses those values. Our room was decorated in neutral colors, the bathroom in white. Everything was on tip-top condition. Very nice Kiehl bath products in the latter. The furnishings are all first-rate: the bed has a down mattress and duvet that made for a restful night's sleep.
The breakfast was standard for Europe: croissant, fruits, cheese, coffee or tea, but very nice offerings, nonetheless. My sweet husband got a tray from the helpful uoung woman at the front desk and brought it to me in the room.
It's a bit on the spendy side, but Zurich was recently identified as one of the most expensive cities in Europe, so the Kindli's rate is in line with the relatively high costs there. Still, we loved the Kindli. It's worth scrimping on other parts of a visit to Europe to enjoy the comforts of the Kindli at the end of your trip as we did at the end of our month-long visit to the continent.
