My personal highlight: Discovering a view over Zurich’s industrial Kreis 5 through a pink glassed door in the sauna

25 Hours Hotel offer surprising spots in several European cities. These people create living concepts for travelers that make one feel home away from home. It’s not only their company philosophy, you feel this by yourself when entering their door. It’s the attention and dedication from their staff. The FREITAG bag or portable music pill you find in the room. The bike or mini car you get for free to explore the city.

What impresses, too, is the interior and accuracy of the selected design and materials. The ambience always bases on a story.

This is Zurich West

An urban fast developing industrial area in Kreis 5, approx. 15 minute bike ride to the city centre of Zurich. Around here you can feel, the startup culture. Modern living spaces and clubs are based here, too. The hotel is embedded in a building where you find offices, apartments and shops.

Food at NENI

The restaurant offers a open space for lunch, after work and dinner. The interior is very fancy bright and invites people to relax at the bar after a busy day.

NENI is famous for eclectic east Mediterranean cuisine inspired by Street food style from Tel Aviv. Haya Molcho is the Chef and founder of the NENI restaurants. She runs the restaurant business with her 4 sons. She loves to travel so the dishes are internationally inspired. Most of the food can be ordered as Balagan. Balagan is a lovely way to define an sympathetic chaos in hebrew. Order across the menu and share with your friends.

I liked the Sabich very much. Sabich is a streetfood from Tel Aviv. It comes with baked eggplant, hummus, tomato salsa, tahina with amba and poached egg in a tortilla.

The Jerusalem plate is a must try, too. Comes with grilled strips of chicken breast, bell pepper, onions, oriental spices and fresh herbs, hummus, tahina and pita bread.

For breakfast I love their tea selection called samova and hand made fruity jams  from local producers.

My personal highlights

Walking through this house feels like being on a mini tour through Switzerland. The concept of Alfredo Häberli is perfectly set into place. Guest feel like in wonderland. Me too.

The dessert is my culinary highlight! The Kanafeh with a Mozzarella-Ricotta filling, Joghurt ice cream and minced pistachios was fingerlickn’ good.

I felt home here. Thank you to the staff for this wonderful experience and being part of the Lovefoodish travel guide.
