And so, on Sunday, we rose to those lofty heights to sample their “Urban Breakfast”…

At first at least, it may take a bit of getting used to searching for the “normal” brunch staples like eggs sunny-side up or muesli among all the hot, Indian-inspired lentil, chickpea and sundry other dumplings.

The new 25hours hotel has opened in Zurich’s West End. The team from Alfredo Häberli Design Development rendered Zurich’s newest Design Hotel in funky colors and with a young touch and lots of little reminders of Zurich.
