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%

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.

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.

Swissotel Zurich

While not right in the heart of Zurich, the Swissotel Zurich is right off of the Oerlikon station; about 5 minutes from the main terminal in Zurich and 4 minutes from the airport. The staff was very friendly and always willing to help with our requests from everything from opera tickets to ZurichCards. The hotel itself is quiet in a relaxed urban neighbourhood.

At 36CHF the 72 hour ZurichCard is a steal. It allows for unlimited use of all forms of public transport (including the water taxi) and free access to many of Zurich's museums. We saved a fortune.

Great couple location

The Hotel is in a great location across the street from the train station and only a short train ride from the airport. When we arrived at the hotel we were greeted by a friendly hotel staff. The guest services staff were very helpful and knowledgeable directing us to where we wanted go and how to get there. The room was clean and neat. We would highly recommend it..

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.

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.
