Once a brewery, now a boutique hotel. Since March 2012 the B2 Boutique Hotel (4*) promises a hotel stay with a (hi)story. But there is no need to worry – although the walls are ancient and full of history, the outlook is very contemporary. The 51 rooms and one suite in the brewery's old mash house/powerhouse and the eight duplex Hürlimann Suites in the former cold store have been comfortably and functionally fitted using high-quality materials. The library is the centrepiece of the hotel. With over 33,000 books, it is an inviting place to read, lose yourself in a good book, experience history at first hand and meet new people. Breakfast consisting of regional products, is served in the library. The wine bar serves a small food range, as well as drinks, wine from Zurich and of course the legendary Hürlimann beer all day long. Thermal Bath & Spa Zurich is connected to the hotel. Hotel guests enjoy special conditions and direct access. Enjoy a spectacular view of Zurich from there roof top terrace, a 150-square metre open air roof pool with spectacular views of the city.
The buildings of the old Hürlimann Brewery will take on a new role following their conversion into the B2 Boutique Hotel & Spa Hürlimann Areal Zurich. However, the industrial character of the buildings has been carefully preserved to illustrate the history of Zurich's legendary brewing era.
These rooms are located in the former mash house and measure between 24 and 28m². They have parquet floors and an open bathroom. They feature a queen-sized bed and standard room fittings. B2 Boutique Rooms are ideal for solo travellers and short stays.
Culinary delights are provided in the form of SWaPPas's (Swiss tapas), wine from Zurich and traditional Hürlimann beer. Swappas are the Swiss interpretation of the famous Spanish tapas that can be enjoyed as a snack, over a glass of wine, or to make up a delicious meal. We also serve cheese specialities from the Zurich region. Breakfast consisting of regional products, is served in the library. The wine bar serves a small food range, as well as drinks, wine from Zurich and of course the legendary Hürlimann beer all day long (until 23:30.).
The luxurious Thermal Bath & Spa Zurich opened in December 2010. It is run by Aqua-Spa-Resorts AG. Spread over 3,300 square metres, this temple of relaxation is nestled in the former barrel filling area of the Hürlimann Brewery. The spa is one of a kind thanks to its unique architecture and an inimitable structure that includes the old barrel vaults of the former brewery. Simple brick walls lend the spa an atmosphere reminiscent of a monastery. Huge metal tanks in the vaulted cellars have been replaced by basins made of larch wood, a reminder of the large beer barrels used in the brewery. The peaceful atmosphere is very relaxing and restorative.
With its tall arched windows and eleven-metre high ceiling, the library is reminiscent of a cathedral. The inventory from an antiquarian bookshop has now found a new home in the hotel library. The books are not merely decorative objects, but can also be borrowed by guests during their stay in the hotel. The library is not only a place to read – it is a space where you can work, talk business or meet a date. This is where you will come to relax, chat, surf, socialise, flirt and network. Breakfast consisting of regional products, is served in the library. The wine bar serves a small food range, as well as drinks, wine from Zurich and of course the legendary Hürlimann beer all day long.
