      Great stay but be cautious

      It was so clean, the staff were so nice and help full, we got a room in the 11th floor and it had a great view, location was nice we rented scooter and went to city center. But please be cautious if you are traveling with your friend the bathroom is made of glass so in case of taking shower you are visible to the other one if he or she is not your significant other :)

      The staff was rude over email prior to visit. They even went so far to say that we should choose another hotel when we visit Zurich.

      Minimal Beauty

      Placid was amazingly beautiful. I loved the floor to ceiling windows, the minimal decor, and hippish furnishing. Only draw back are the showers. It's just a curtain separating the rest of the bathroom and the water gets everywhere. They need to put in glass doors/wall. Staff was great for the most part. Only one day when both female receptionists never acknowledged us as we walked in. We were the only ones entering. Breakfast great too. I would definitely return - if the bathrooms get remodeled.
