Signau House & Garden

Zürich, Zurich, Switzerland

A charming boutique hotel with an integrated cinema and a beautiful garden in the middle of Zurich. That sounds almost too good to be true. The "Signau House and Garden" can also come up with an exciting history and very illustrious guests like Martin Scorsese and Roger Moore (yes, James Bond). Because before the villa was converted into a hotel in 2018, there was a film production company in the building that had installed a cinema for their professional film screenings. And so today you spend the night, so to speak, where James Bond stayed.

The villa, which is more than a hundred years old, has been extensively renovated in accordance with the monument. The beautiful wood paneling of the dining room, the stucco elements and stone floors in the foyer, the checkerboard tiles on the veranda and the parquet in the drawing room were preserved or carefully restored. The ten rooms are individually designed. Tasteful wall colors, timeless design classics, high-quality wooden furniture and elegant antiques result in a successful mix of Swiss cosiness, English country house and modern hotel culture. The very private and intimate atmosphere and the warmth of the hosts also ensure relaxation. A special kind of aesthetic jewel in the middle of the big city.

The garden is something like the heart of the property and was reconstructed according to the original plans. Colorful flower beds, ancient trees, apricot trees and rare water lilies in the pond invite you to look and linger. In summer there are always cooking events with excellent chefs who exclusively present their menus here. In the garden you can drink a martini from the in-house bar - stirred or shaken - with a cinematic view of the magnificent water lilies.

Das denkmalgeschützte dreigeschossige Haus wurde modernisiert und mit viel Geschmack verschönert. Und vor allem haben sie im Signau House and Garden Boutique Hotel dem Gast die Möglichkeit gegeben, die Mühen der Stadt hinter sich zu lassen.

Ulf Lippitz,, November 2022

Neun Doppelzimmer, eine Zweizimmer-Suite über zwei Etagen, ein Kamin- und Esszimmer, ein Salon, eine Veranda, ein Kino für 29 Personen und ein kleiner Park mit Froebeli-Seerosen, einer echten botanischen Rarität: Das Signau House & Garden ist zweifelsohne Zürichs prachtvollstes Boutique-Hotel., November 2022

Drei befreundete Zürcher Familien hatten die 1912 errichtete Villa aus ihrem Dornröschenschlaf erweckt und in jahrelanger Arbeit stilecht renoviert. Heute bietet das Boutique-Hotel neben zehn Zimmern einen schönen Garten, ein hauseigenes Kino sowie viel Raum für spezielle Anlässe..., November 2022

Ruhig gelegen im Zürcher Riesbachquartier, befindet sich das Signau House & Garden in einer über 100-jährigen, denkmalgeschützten Villa. 1912 wurde sie im englischen Landhaus-Stil erbaut und später liebevoll restauriert. Seit 2018 werden Gäste von nah und fern beherbergt – und dennoch ist das Boutique-Hotel in der Touristenstadt Zürich ein Geheimtipp geblieben. Zwischen Kreuzplatz und Hegibachplatz gelegen ist sie mit ihrem gepflegten Garten mit englischem Rasen, stattlichen Bäumen und einem Wasserbecken eine Oase der Ruhe und Erholung., November 2022
