We're fans of unique old structures being repurposed into hotels. Case in point: B2 Boutique Hotel + Spa. This lodging is housed in Zurich's old Hürlimann Brewery, which was founded in 1836. The property's original industrial bones have been preserved, much to the benefit of the accommodations and public spaces. The 51 guest rooms and one suite reside in the old mash house, while eight duplex suites can be found in the former cold storage space. The hotel's anchor and social hub is the library. It features more than 33,000 books, a wine bar and, naturally, plenty of Hürlimann beer. Of special note is the on-site Thermal Bath & Spa, with family-friendly and adult-only areas. Guests can indulge in the signature Irish-Roman ritual (ten different treatments over the course of two hours), relax in the thermal baths located in 100-year-old underground vaults, or laze in the breathtaking geometric rooftop pool, complete with city and mountain views.
