Reading Time: 4 minutes

Hosted in the hear of Zürich airport in Switzerland, the Radisson Blu hotel is one of these places where you forget where, when, what you are. Crossroad of many travelers, especially if your check in is at 07h am, like me, you can discovery an amazing and surprising place. It is already my second staying at this hotel and I am always positively surprised by the people, the place and the services.

This business and lifestyle hotel is one of Switzerland’s largest conference hotels, offering over 46 meeting rooms spanning more than 3,720m2. Behind the impressive façade of stone and glass, business and leisure travellers can experience a cosmopolitan ambience of avant-garde design and lifestyle.

330 rooms including 6 one-bedroom suites and a Presidential Suite offer state-of-the-art hotel design in a wide range of room styles, including ‘Chic’, ‘Fresh’, ‘At Home’ and ‘Charme’. In addition to high-quality furnishings, guests can expect exciting design details, a safe large enough to accommodate a laptop, a mini bar and a flat-screen TV.

The rooms were designed by famous artist and designer Matteo Thun. He stands for long lasting solutions with holistic approach. Architecture means designing the soul of the place. This implies an aesthetic, economic and technological sustainability. It means to create a synthesis of the existing, the purpose and the area. The solution is different, each time. Product design must reflect the soul of the brand. It is architecture of simple, pure and beautiful gestures to serve a daily life that goes well beyond our present life. He is italian-born artist and have been working around the world as an accomplished designer. What we appreciate on Matteo Thun work at the Radisson Blu is that the rooms are full of small clever and chic details. Each staying reveals different features in the room. It is comfortable, cosy, elegant and yet very contemporary. In my case I did not noticed these door handles below. Also check some of the rooms I got on the past 2 times here.

In the bathroom, I was positively surprise to find Anne Semonin beauty and hygiene products. This french brand has the aim to propose an holistic approach of beauty, blending essential oils and oligoelements. Well-being for happy few.

The PACE Fitness Club, with views of the Wine Tower, state-of-the-art fitness and stamina-building equipment, sauna and steam bath, is the perfect place to revitalise both body and spirit.

Guests at the Filini Restaurant enjoy a modern interpretation of classic Italian dishes, while the angels’ wine tower grill offers meat and fish specialities from the open grill. A spectacular highlight in the atrium is the 16m wine tower, housing around 4,000 bottles of wine and Champagne and featuring regular Wine Angel performances.

In this 16m high wine tower, we can admire white angels flying up and down inside the glass monument. Just get a nice cocktail at the bar and check the flying dancers. Check this short video I did about one of these Angels… My bailey’s was much softer..

So, is it the doors of heavens or the gates of “soft” hell ?
