Now reopened after a complete transformation is the striking, heritage-listed Atlantis Hotel Zurich one of Switzerland’s most important post-war modernist buildings.
Features from the glory days of the fifties and sixties have been thoughtfully integrated into the new aesthetics and restored to their original place where possible. Opposite the reception the 1970s spiral staircase has been repurposed to whisk guests up to the first floor to the Hide & Seek Bar which showcases a replica vault on one wall, reminiscent of Zurich’s rich banking heritage, while the adjoining restaurant boasts a hand-picked collection of novels and photo journals curated by a local bookseller.
With views over the city, woodland, or both, the 95 rooms and suites are divided into two separate room categories and three suite categories, sizes ranging from 34 to 250sq m. Dark parquet flooring, fabric covered suede-look walls, and wood accents create a chic elegance only heightened by marble and natural stone bathrooms.
The hotel’s spa features saunas and a steam room, a spa suite with hot tub, a fitness centre with Technogym equipment, a yoga and pilates studio, and hair salon and barber shop. The indoor pool includes a Jacuzzi and the 25m-long outdoor pool, complete with pool bar for the warm summer days in the mountains. www.designhotels.com/atlantis-by-giardino
