B2 Boutique Hotel and Spa

This is surely one of the most unusual places of lodging in Zurich, a kind of trip-within-a-trip. The 60-room B2 Boutique Hotel is in what was once the Hürlimann Brewery; built at the end of the 19th century, it was one of Switzerland's largest breweries back in its day. Many of the brewery's features have been preserved within the hotel's interior design scheme, including the almost unchanged brewery hall, which has been listed as an industrial heritage site.

Black and white photographs on the walls of the modernly elegant rooms capture the moment shortly before the long-idle brewery underwent its transformation into a hotel. Adding to the hotel's historic charm is the inventive use of old brewery equipment, such as a nightstand made from an old bar tap. Another special component of this hotel is the Library Lounge, a café-cum-library in the establishment's lobby. It contains more than 33,000 books, some of which even serve as stylized coffee tables. Thanks to being perched upon a hill, the hotel has its own thermal spring with which it fills its spa pool.
