Despite its being one of the most expensive cities in the
world, Zürich can still offer a reasonably full range of accommodation,
and if you book ahead you’ll have a good chance of finding something pleasant
within your price range. Prices at the higher-end places, though, can be frightful,
and some mid-range hoteliers take this as carte blanche to overcharge:
you’d be well advised to take nothing for granted and investigate what you’ll
be getting for your money before you check in. Nearby Baden and Winterthur offer equally characterful accomodation at more affordable prices.
The tourist office’s dedicated hotel reservation service (01/215 40 40, fax 215 40 44, firstname.lastname@example.org,
or over-the-counter) can book a room in the hotel of your choice for free within
Zürich, or Fr.10 elsewhere in Switzerland. Make sure to ask them about any weekend
or off-season deals the city happens to be running, which can often slash walk-in
rates to bargain levels.
