About this listing
I'm living in a super lovely apartment in city center, last floor, in Schmiede Wiedikon (Zurich, Kreis 3).
I have a spare room for you with a big king bed.
I just have one bathroom so we'll have to share it.
I also have a big pull-out sofa in the living room, should you be more than two (for exceptions).
I live 10' from Zurich HB or Paradeplatz with tram (15' from Bellevue), and a short walk from Banhof Enge (10') or Banhof Wiedkion (6').
My neighborhood is super quiet (even too much) and I live just behind (website hidden) office. There is a big mall (Sihlcity) 10' walk and a few shops and bars. Closest public transport is "Schmiede Wiedikon" (4' walk), with bars, restaurants, and shops. There is parking in front of the house but it's not included (15CHF/day).
I won't promise breakfast because you might have some expectations I might not be able to guarantee. That being said, I'm pretty sure I'll help you get fed, there's always good food in my apartment and I'm super happy to share!
I am a clean person and I expect you to be clean as well (no shoes around the house, ...).
What makes my place unique is the apartment itself (is *really* nice) and my guidance: I can help you to get the most out of the city: logistics, restaurants, ... and if you are alone I'm happy to show you around. I'm an Italian "social butterfly" and I'll be more than happy to show you nice places to eat and (website hidden) I don't speak a good German: English/Italian/Portuguese/French please.

Interaction with Guests
If you let me know in advance, I'll be more than happy to show you around, go for drinks, .. in the evening. In the weekend I prefer to stay on my own (sports, computer, washmachines, ..) but I might walk you up to Uetliberg if it's a sunny day! Beautiful view up there and pretty close to my house.
My neighborhood is incredibly *silent*.
Lovely cherry trees when it blooms in spring.
Plenty of shops just 4' away and a nice Mexican to have fun ("Desperado").
Public transport is excellent in Zurich.
Schmiede Wiedikon connects you to center via 9 (Paradeplatz/Bellevue) and 14 (HauptBanhof and ETH). Both take you to Stauffacher, where you have further options.
Use (website hidden) maps to check your logistics.
From the airport, do the following:
1. Buy a ticket to city center (zone 110 and 121)
2. Take ANY train which goes south from quay 3/4 (quays 3 and 4 all go to city center, while 1/2 go north)
3. If it stops in Wiedikon, stop there and walk 6'. You're lucky! Otherwise, stop in Hauptbanhof (HB) and take 14.
(there might be slightly better routes if you use (website hidden) Maps, which in Zurich works amazingly).
- please no shoes to walk around
- free wifi
- some free food available, probably I can also cook some pasta if we get along! :)
- please give me a quick call to phone before arriving.
- if you have kids, please let me know in advance.
Riccardo was a great host! He was super friendly, which was nice since I was traveling for work by myself. The room was comfortable - I had everything I needed during my two week stay, including laundry and use of the kitchen. Thanks, Riccardo!
- Ricardo is a super Friendly Host
- he cooked me some pasta when I arrived so I directly felt like at home
- his apartment is super clean and located in a quiet street
Riccardo was kind enough to allow me to rent his room at the very last minute. He is an amazing host and told me what I needed in order to move around in such an awesome city. He is a very flexible, educated & kind host.
The apartment was perfect, centrally located and at walking distance to town. It's good to walk around when you are visiting a place for the first time so you can really connect with the City, and you can definitely do this if you stay at Riccardo's place.
Also, the apartment was very clean an organised.
This was, with no doubt, my best airbnb experience so far.
Riccardo, sei un mito. Grazie mille! stammi bene.
Riccardo has been really nice. I was there for an Ironman race with a lot of gear, he helped me with a lot of space, quiet and kindness. Everything was perfect, too bad i Couldnt go out with him and his friends. Strongly suggested!!!!!
Riccardo was very hospitable and the room was cozy and nice. Highly recommend if you're staying in Zurich.
Riccardo is a very accommodating and flexible host. The place is neat and comfortable in a nice, fairly quiet area, close to public transportation. Thanks!
