Gorgeous hotel perfect local

The location of the hotel is perfect right across the street from the train station, a 2 minute train ride to Zurich's town center, and less than 10 minutes by train from the airport. There are also at least 6 great restaurants less than a block from the hotel. The hotel is also across from a grocery/department type store. The hotel is gorgeous the staff was super friendly and helpful. The pool and spa was beautiful as well. If we ever go back to Switzerland we will definitely stay there again. The hotel bar had the coldest beer in town. The only down side to traveling in Switzerland and it's not just this hotel it is that the Swiss do not believe in proper pillows on the beds. We had this issue on our previous trip so it's not necessarily this hotel it's just a Swiss thing. Thanks Swissotel for a wonderful stay!

Bring cash to switch to swiss franks or travelers checks to switch to franks. The swiss like to use cash not credit.

Business quality

Spent a week om business, standard room nn 25th floor. 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.

Great location and Great Hotel

Absolutely great location - right across the street from the trams; 1 stop from airport and 2 stops from downtown. Rooms are very, very clean and orderly

Great shopping in downtown Zurich both in the old and new areas. Very quick from the trains - I wouldn't recommend any other way to get to and from the hotel.

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.

Get the 24 hour rail pass (8.00 CH) which allows unlimited travel in Zone 10.

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.

Actually, a short train ride. The Kronehaus Hotel is absolutely worth the money.

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.

Very Nice

The hotel is very nice and convienient to the Zurich airport and the city by train. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The pool on the 32nd floor was very impressive. This is a great place to stay and relax before an early morning flight out of Zurich.

To save time and money, definetly take the train to/from the hotel to the airport rather than a cab. The train is much cheaper and much faster.
