short answer: sounds great (okay, i'm maybe a bit biased as "Zürcher").
BTW: I found at http://www.vs.inf.ethz.ch/contact/location.html a
quite nice description of location and how to get there, so imho it's
really quite central and nicely accessible.
At http://www.inf.ethz.ch/services/reservation is a little overview
about the rooms that can be booked, now I ask you as our "internal":
What do you think, which room(s) would be appropriate for us? And, how
long in advance do they need to be reserved?
