The one-star Etap Hotel Zurich City West offers 160 clean, private rooms in the happenin’ Zurich West neighborhood. Etap is a French hotel chain that’s made a name for itself offering comfortable, affordable rooms, and the Zurich outlet is no exception. They may be bare-bones, but these are some of the cheapest rooms in the city.
Guestrooms at the Etap Zurich City West are cramped but spotless, with new parquet floors and a bit of a college dorm room feel. Cheery pastel walls add a bit of character, but furnishings are utilitarian. Some rooms have air conditioning (ask ahead) and all are equipped with a telephone and flat-screen TV.
All rooms have private bathrooms, but the glass-walled showers in some rooms are literally located in the room (a quick way to get cozy with a travel buddy). Fortunately, all rooms have a closed door to separate their spartan toilets.
The tiled lobby is rather sterile, and this isn’t the type of place to offer a concierge or bellhops. Likewise, there are no extras at the Etap Hotel Zurich City West. It costs an additional CHF20 to bring your pet along, CHF22 per night to park and CHF11 for an unspectacular buffet breakfast (instead head to the nearby Coop, which may have the best food court of any Zurich supermarket). Still, rooms here can be cheaper than some of the hostels in town.
Wi-Fi and an Internet station are available, both for an additional charge.

About the Etap Hotel Zurich City West neighborhood
Once simply referred to as “Industry Quarter,” this western district (Kreis 5) has been engulfed by the ever-expanding Zurich city proper. Located just west of Langstrasse and the train station, the vibrant (and still changing) Zurich West is home to trendy boutiques, unique art galleries and a slew of in-demand eateries (plus the occasional prostitute).
