Interaction with Guests
As much interaction with me as you like. I can provide information, maps and leaflets on regions, places, museums, etc... just ask!
It's not so expensive or snobby as some areas of the city, more down to earth. People are friendly but not pushy. Great access to airport, city, lake, but also close to nature, just a 10 minute walk to the river and gorgeous countryside, or half an hour to the foot of Zurich's home mountain and nature trails
Tram on the next street, you can see the tracks from the kitchen! Trams every 7 minutes during the week and every 10-15 minutes at the weekends. Or 7 minutes to the nearest railway station for trains to the airport and other parts of the country.
Other Things to Note
Street parking with a permit, which you can get online at the city website:
If you make an inquiry (not a booking), I will hold the room for you for 48 hours, before releasing it to the next booking!
Wenn Du eine Anfrage (keine Buchung) machst, werde ich das Zimmer 48 Stunden für Dich blockieren, danach akzeptiere ich die nächste Buchung!
Guests are welcome to make use of the facilities and cupboard/fridge contents, but please replace what you use.
I will set out breakfast every morning from 7 to 9 am, please put dirty dishes, etc in the dishwasher and return uneaten fruit and drinks to the fridge.
Please do not eat in the bedroom, use the kitchen which has a dining table for 4.
I am an early riser, and work until at least 6.30 so prefer check in around 7pm unless otherwise arranged on a weekend.
Check out is flexible but easier if by midday.
Thanks for your understanding.
Gäste können gerne die Küche benutzen, aber bitte ersetzen Sie die Sachen, die Sie nehmen.
Ich werde das Frühstück jeden Morgen zwischen 7 und 9 Uhr aufsetzen; bitte räumt das dreckige Geschirr in die Maschine weg und stell die nicht gegessene/getrunkene Sachen wieder in den Kühlschrank.
Bitte nicht im Schlafzimmer essen, sondern in der Küche, wo es einen 4-Personen Esstisch gibt.
Ich muss früh aufstehen und bin erst gegen 18.30 Uhr wieder zu Hause, also einchecken bitte um zirka 19 Uhr, ausser wenn wir eine andere Zeit an einem Wochenende vereinbaren.
Auschecken ist flexibler, wenn möglich bis Mittag.
Dank für Ihr Verständnis.
Cathrine hat mich herzlich aufgenommen. Mit ihrer freundlichen und offenen Art hat sich schon an diesem einen Abend ejn nettes Gespräch ergeben gehabt.
Das Zimmer war sauber und ordentlich und zum Wohlfühlen.
Würde mich freuen wie bei Catherine "Unterschlupf" zu finden.
We had a great time staying at Catherine's place and I wish we could have been there more than one night. It's a really nice and clean place in a good location. Catherine is really cool and helpful. I would strongly recommend staying here for your trip to Zurich.
Catherine is a wonderful host. She is very detail oriented and takes care of the smallest of the details. Her apartment is also very charming and about 10 minutes tram ride away from the center.
She also has this special ability to make you feel at home right away. When I arrived with 13+ hr train ride, she made nice coffee that instantly charged me up again for another day of exploring :-) She is also very resourceful. She gave me 'american->swiss' electric converter. Also gave me lot of tips about exploring Zurich, and recommended me a fondue place - that was the best Fondue of my life! Highly recommended...
The reservation was canceled 2 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
I really enjoyed my time staying with Catherine in Zurich, a home away from home. I was able to relax with a cup of tea and a chat after a long and busy day. The location was great, with the tram just a few metres away to go directly to the city centre and the apartment was very quiet and calm. Overall a great place to stay.
Alles war super, gibt nichts was man nicht positiv Bewerten kann. Es gab sogar Frühstück, trotz einigen airbnb Übernachtungen war das mein erstes! Ich würde in jedem Fall wieder kommen.
Absolutely the best time I've had in an airbnb house, and I haven't had a bad experience yet. Catherine is warm, friendly and fantastic for a chat, as well as being generous and accommodating. The place itself is lovely - the room is comfortable, light, clean and well-furnished, the kitchen is big enough to have four people cooking and eating at a slight squish, and everything works really well. Thanks Catherine for a wonderful time in Zurich!
