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 Google 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 google 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 Google Maps, which in Zurich works amazingly).
