This is a solid Swiss Hotel with a good location for transportation (right at the train/tram station)with restaurants and shopping just as comvenient. Rooms are comfortable with great use of built ins. Staff was great, house cleaning excellent, restaurant pricy but excellent. I have stayed here before and find it consistent on each trip.

This Hotel was a fantastic choice

This Hotel was a fantastic choice for us. Rooms were small, but very clean and the space was well utilized. Top floor gym, pool, sauna, spa area was a nice way to start the day. Very convenient to get to the city centre - guest services at this hotel were extremely helpful to recommend a great tour and fantastic nightlife for us. I would definitely stay here again.

Easy access to the train

The room was clean and fairly comfortable. As usual, the internet access was a bit of a ripoff: 24 CH/day. The access to the great Zurich train system was very convenient. The restaurants in the immediate area weren't great and all of them were very pricey.

The staff was very friendly and helpfull. The breakfast was excellent. The public transport system (trams, trains) was very efficient and easy to use, so although the hotel was not in the centre of the city it was very easy to get to the centre.

This is the best hotel deal in Zurich

The location of this hotel, right across from a main train station on the airport-to-downtown line, is not to be beat. As an alternative, there is great tram and bus service which make it easy to do anything in town without traveling very far. And the swimming pool and hot tub on the top floor of the hotel were a welcome site after a busy day of traveling, sightseeing, and walking the Swiss wanderways.

Good for the business traveller. Just that little bit out of town for the tourist but it is right next to a rail stop just one stop from town centre. Good rooms, staff and hotel

Great Hotel in a Fantastic Location

My wife and I were in Switzerland for about a week to attend a friend's wedding ceremony and stayed at Swissotel the entire time we were there. The hotel is very nice, especially compared with other hotels in Europe. The rooms are extremely clean, if a tad small and the service was excellent. The country is amazing, easily one of the most beautiful foreign countries we have visited. We found ourselves wondering at some point during the trip whether the entire country had been professionally manicured. Others may disagree but I felt that the real draw of the country was the outdoor scenery. If possible, try to reduce the money you spend on food and save it for outdoor activities - biking, hiking, and taking the train to other cities in Switzerland.

Food in Switzerland is extremely expensive compared with the US. To save some money, forgo eating at restaurants and grab some food at either the outside eateries/cafes or even better, eat at Migros or Coop (grocery stores that also serve food).

Great hotel at value prices

Hotel's location is super, right next to the Oerlikon station. A bit away from the city center, but with trains every 5 mins, that wasn't much of an issue. In spite of its location, the rooms are pretty quiet. The airport is also only 5 mins away by train, though this can be an issue for folks with a lot of luggage as the hotel shuttle (as advertized for 8 CHF) is no longer operational. Rate included access to the fitness center and spa which unfortuntely we never made use of! :( Many restaurant options available nearby. For those driving in, parking is expensive (what is not in Switzerland!), 36 CHF per day. Maybe there are cheaper options nearby... Overall, I thought it was pretty good value for 165 CHF considering hotel prices in Switzerland.
