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 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.

Great location & Customer Service

Swissotel Zurich is very conveniently located - 1 train stop from Airport, 2 train stops from Zurich Main train station. Customer service/reception staff were friendly. Special thanks to Luca - he was extremely helpful, accommodating and knowledgeable - made good recommendations on sightseeing and restaurants. He made our stay fuss free. Highly recommend this hotel. Downside - Room/bathrom was rather small, pillows were too soft, Internet at CHF30 per day is daylight robbery - definitely didn't justify paying such a price for using it for a couple of hours. Should have been complimentary for all guests considering the internet is such a necessary part of our lives.

Good for the money

We found it really convenient for the price we paid. Close to the train station and that was a plus. Hotel should provide better pillows or at least have more pillows available in the room to have a better night sleep. That is why my rating for the room comfort is lower. We were charged a tax before leaving and I was surprised because that should have been included in the price I paid through this website.

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.

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.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

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).
