Burn off energy in the fitness area

A casual morning workout with a sunrise view of Zurich. Working off energy after an eventful day. Get ready for your personal fitness programme! The fitness area at the Placid Hotel Zurich boasts state-of-the-art equipment and a sensational city panorama. Free for hotel guests, open 24/7.

Breathe deeply in the Room of Tranquility

Room of Tranquility: a place to pause and relax. Zurich-based artist Hans-Peter Kistler created the very special atmosphere. Room-high panels of fabric, epoxy resin, dyed with pigments from around the world, screen the windows.  The resulting optical effects change with the light, producing a drama of magical power.

Enjoy the breeze on the roof terrace

40 metres up on the 11th floor. The noise of the city far away, an occasional breeze. The view spans not only Altstetten and the sights of Zurich, but extends as far as the neighbouring Limmat Valley. The Placid Hotel Zurich's two rooftop patios offer a panorama par excellence. And you realise that those on cloud nine really are almost in heaven.

Relax in the lounge

Open atmosphere, wide vista: the lounge on the 9th floor is the most diverse space at the Placid Hotel Zurich. Inviting guests to relax and unwind, it is an informal place to chat and relax. Use the business corner with notebook and printer and serve yourself with fresh fruits and tee which are free of charge.

On tour with design bikes

With "Max" and "Marlene" - our design bikes of the brand "Zweiradgeber" - you can discover Zurich in a very individual way. The bikes were specially made for the Placid Hotel and are always ready for you.

Recharge your batteries on the garden terrace

Our spacious urban garden terrace is an oasis of peace in Zurich-Altstetten. The terrace invites you to linger - whether to eat, drink or to recharge your batteries. The terrace with its unique flair is divided into a restaurant area as well as an open area and is also equipped with a children's playground.

Discover Zurich by e-scooter

With the Placid E-Scooter - the electrically driven scooter - the city of Zurich can be explored in an environmentally friendly, quiet and effortless way.

Riding the e-scooters is a lot of fun and it is allowed to ride on bicycle paths.
