As we walked into Mövenpick Zurich-Regensdorf I knew straight away I was going to enjoy this hotel. Why? Because they were having a free chocolate tasting in the reception area as we walked in! Okay, it was more than the chocolate that impressed me but didn’t hurt!
Greeted not only by chocolate but also friendly staff was a great introduction to this Swiss hotel. Everything looked fresh and new, and I later found out they had a recent renovation so everything was fresh and new.
The room had the same newness to it and immediately we felt at home. The room was spacious and beautifully decorated. And the bed? One of the most comfortable bed I’ve ever slept on! It had a pillow top mattress and it felt like I was sleeping on a cloud!
There are a few things that are important to me when it comes to a hotel; 1: A good bath (I do love a good bubble bath!) 2: Good WiFi (the bloggers lifeline) and 3: Good food! Thankfully they had all three items covered, especially the food.
It started with the chocolate of course (a way to win over any woman!), but got even better from there. Mövenpick Zurich-Regensdorf have three eateries to choose from; the Italian restaurant Ciao, the Mediterranean restaurant Atrium Garden and 8105 Lounge & Bar.
We had the most amazing dinner at Ciao; in fact, I’d dare say it was better than most of the meals we had in Italy… Probably because the chef was Italian, so he knew what he was doing! We also had some great after dinner drinks at 8105 – They know how to mix some pretty fancy cocktails!
Of course all the calories consumed by eating a truck load of chocolate, a carb heavy Italian meal and tasty sugary cocktails meant spending time in the gym the next morning. Guests have access to a 3000 sqm fitness center which is attached to the hotel. Even better, there is a wellness area where you can have your after workout soreness massaged away.
Another great feature is the shopping center which is adjacent to the hotel. Everything you need is right there! The train station is also really close by so very easy to get to other parts of the city if you don’t have a car. Zurich isn’t a huge city so you will find it very easy to get around on public transport.
We really enjoyed our stay at Mövenpick Zurich-Regensdorf. The staff were friendly and helpful, the room was super comfortable and the dining choices were amazing. We will be staying here again when we return to Zurich!
