perfect short break

Spent 4 nights here while attending a wedding in Zurich. Chose it because it was only affordable hotel with spa plus it is opposite railway station. Location is between airport & city. 5 mins from airport & 10 mins to city by train. Macdonalds & lots of shops & bars close by but tram or train ride if you want to spend time in Zurich city. Farmers market outside on Saturday. Hotel staff very polite & helpful. Pc in lobby with printer for printing out boarding passes for return journey & staff printed out train tickets for return to airport. Free WiFi in Starbucks in lobby but chargeable in hotel rooms. Booked classic room but got upgraded to room with free Nespresso coffee maker. Room clean, bed comfy, ensuite bath & shower small but adequate. Tv with lots of English channells including bbc & itv so got to watch the footy after the wedding! Pool on top floor is a must for relaxing with views across city & mountains. Sauna & steam room separate from pool but also with panoramic views. Swimwear not allowed in sauna & steam room for hygiene reasons but towels allowed if you are shy about going in naked. Road works outside slightly spoiled the experience but it has to be done sometime. Altogether a perfect place for us and a thoroughly enjoyable stay.

Excellent hotel and staff!

My sister and I stayed for 3 nights at Swissotel Zurich this week. The hotel is in Oerlikon. From the airport it only takes 4 minutes to the hotel on the train. The hotel is opposite as soon as you leave the station. This makes it so easy with luggage! From the hotel you can get the tram or trai to Zurich centre, the train takes 7 minutes to the centre. The tram takes about 20 mins to Zurich centre, but you can take in different areas if the city. We had a twin room. The rooms are great, all the usual mod cons. You get a nespresso machine, kettle, along with tea, coffee, milk, sugar etc. The rooms have a nice decor. The bathroom is small but perfectly formed. A great rain style shower, a magnifying mirror (great for us ladies to do our makeup). Toiletries are provided too. The beds are very comfortable. They even have a pillow menu, where you can choose a pillow and they will bring it to your room! A nice touch. We didnt have breakfast included in our hotel deal. We went to the co-op store that is opposite the hotel and bought croissants for our breakfast. Perfect! The breakfast is 35 Swiss francs per person per day, too much for my liking! Definitely consider this hotel if you are visiting Zurich. The staff are so helpful and friendly, nothing is too much trouble. We ate in Oerlikon on 2 evenings, and the staff gave us great recommendations. Excellent staff make for an excellent stay. Wifi is chargeable, but if you join the Swiss circle scheme on the Swissotel website and give your membership no at checkin, you will get wifi for free. The Swissotel circle scheme is free to join. A good tip, if you want to use the internet. Thankyou Swissotel, for a great stay.

If you need to stay in Oerlikon...

Great staff. Good restaurant and bar. Gym is modest, indoor roof top pool is nice. Rooms are clean, neat and comfortable. Local bars restaurants are OK. Short cab ride or train to town and the Paradeplatz area make this hotel a value seekers hotel.

Excellent location for an early morning flight

Stayed here for one day after snowboarding in Austria. The staff was extremely nice on arrival. The room was comfortable and the pool/spa was very relaxing. I would highly recommend this hotel if you have an early morning flight the next day. The train to the airport is right outside the hotel.

Returning from Skiing in Austria

Check-in very friendly. Very friendly staff. Good location for city transportation. Close to airport. Issues : 1. Water pressure too low in shower/bath. 2. Dryer electric cord was not long enough - you had to blow-dry hair standing over the toilet. 3. Shampoo supplied, but no conditioner. 4. Room temperature was hard to control. 5. No breakfast - Breakfast not included @ 146.51 USD/per night. 6. Upon check-out, was told we had taken 2 beers from the minibar, which was not the case. 7. The hotel describes great views - our room was high, but we looked at train tracks.

excellent choice for Zurich

It only takes 10-15 minutes to get downtown and the hotel location is literally a station for public means of transport. The breakfast is delicious,the bar is ideal for a drink before sleeping and the staff is excellent. The only problem was that the bathroom doesn't get heated and when it's pretty cold outside you cannot enjoy it 100%

Great but skip Breakfast!

The hotel was beautiful and clean, and the free drink tickets were excellent but skip the breakfast. We spent almost $100 (35 cgh per person!) on a cold buffet. Also there was no free wifi....ran about $10 an hour with only one log on.
