The Walhalla Hotel turns into Fred Hotel

The Walhalla Hotel - our first and oldest hotel - shines in new splendor. In the course of the several-month renovation, it was rebranded: Starting at the end of April, it will welcome our guests as Fred Hotel Zürich Hauptbahnhof, including a new website.

For several months, there was a busy construction site atmosphere in and around the Walhalla Hotel. For everyone involved - and also for our guests - this was an unusual situation, as hotel operations continued during the renovation. But the wait was worth it: at the end of April 2023, the hotel will shine in new splendor - as the Fred Hotel Zürich Hauptbahnhof.

One of three Fred Hotels Zürich

The biggest external change is the change of name. With the name Fred, we honor our company founder Fred Tschanz and want to bring his philosophy of hospitality into the present. Our other hotel operations - the Walhalla Guest House and the Alpine Rooms by Leoneck - will also become Fred Hotels Zürich, in each case supplemented by the location and the orientation as Guest House or Self Check-in Hotel.

Friendly, timeless interior design

The newly renovated rooms welcome our guests with a warm, bright interior design. Oak parquet flooring and muted colors create an inviting, friendly feel-good ambience. The high-quality furnishings with Swiss Bico mattresses underline the high standard of comfort and ensure a pleasant hotel experience - even during longer stays. Coffee corners are now located on the floors and are available to our guests free of charge.

Understanding coexistence

We would like to take this opportunity to thank our guests for their goodwill. A conversion during ongoing operations is a major challenge, which is why we are enormously grateful for the understanding that we received from our guests. Our team also did a great job and did everything to keep the hotel running as smoothly as possible. For example, the reception was moved to the second floor and dust protection walls shielded our guests from the construction work.

Countdown to the restart

In the meantime, the reception desk is back in its usual place - but with a completely new look. The name Walhalla will soon represent another chapter in the hotel's long history. And we can hardly wait to fill the Fred Hotel Zürich Hauptbahnhof with life and welcome our guests in a new ambience, but with classic hospitality.
