very small rooms

I booked the pinnacle room which costs extra and according to the hotel web site is supposed to be bigger and have a good view of the alps. in reality all rooms are the same size and tiny. The bathrooms are also extremely small and uncomfortable. The gym upstairs is a joke: closet -size and almost no equipment. The pool is not bad. A typical Holiday Inn in the US offers much better rooms, facilities, and overall experience and calls itself a 3 star hotel. I liked the location: right across from a train station and a 10 min train ride away from either airport or the main rail station in the center of Zurich. did not try their breakfasts which cost 35 chf and supposed to be good. they charge extra 7 chf for wi-fi.

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.

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..

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.

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.
