25Hours Hotel Zürich Langstrasse

My personal highlight: Living the urban nomad style in between of Langstrasse and Europaallee in Zurich by getting involved into NENI’s food philosophy and the Balagan lifestyle. Christoph Hoffmann’s & Haya Molcho’s life attitude is viral!

People who do not know this area of Zurich will love it right away. Langstrasse Kreis 4 meets Europaallee Kreis 5. The diversity is astonishing. Walking through Langstrasse you understand what I mean. It’s the most multi cultural area of Zurich including a red light district and plenty of amazing young art.
Across the other side to Europaallee you feel the new trend towards modern office spaces, local designer stores and fancy popup stores.

The best premise to open up a pocket universe

Who better than the creative heads at 25Hours Hotels could perfectly put into scene the vibrant changes of these two Zurich areas and merge them into a hotel concept? That is how 25 Hours Hotels Zürich Langstrasse was born.

Christoph Hoffmann, CEO of 25Hours Hotels and his team cooperated with local architects E2A and the interior Design Studio Aisslinger from Berlin. A fancy, stylish but very practical and surprising surrounding is the result.

Since art is an important topic in this Zurich area you get to see big pieces of art spread all over the house.
An in-house atelier lead by the Zurich artist Esther Eppstein has its base in the hotel. Esther invites and promotes young artists and coaches them on a defined project.
Find a Kiosk curated by local Media publisher KEIN & ABER VERLAG. Get selected books or fancy accessories.

My personal highlights

Getting to know Haya Molcho and feeling her passion for food is delightful. She is a person full of energy and ideas transmitting the Balagan style. On of her sons laughs and confirms, that she is really Balagan. This Hebrew word means: sympathetic chaos! NENI is a word play out of her 4 sons names. Nuriel, Elior, Nadiv and Ilan. The name reflects their philosophy of life. NENI is a passion paired with openness and love for food. Eating is always done at a large table with the whole family and many friends. That is what you feel when talking to Haya Molcho in person. That is also what you feel when entering at NENI Restaurant at 25 Hours Hotels.

The Molcho Family runs several NENI restaurants within the 25Hours Hotels in Europe. They make sure the NENI philosophy is lived in every NENI Restaurant. The Kitchen team at 25Hours Hotels gets regular coaching on how to prepare and maintain the NENI food philosophy alive.

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.
