Novotel Zurich Airport Messe

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

No complimentry anything. No coffee no ice. The staff was nice but vet costly.

We arrived fairly late and tired from the long flight. We were very pleased that the hotel was less than 10 minutes tram ride away and very easy to get to. The staff at the reception was very welcoming and helpful. We slept well in a very clear and comfortable room....felt much refreshed as we woke up in the morning.

Excellent! The front desk staff were friendly, and very helpful. The room was immaculately clean, and we had a very quiet, relaxed evening before catching a flight the next morning out of Zurich. 5 mins to the airport on a for pay shuttle. We would recommend this hotel. Thank you.

a great place to stay while preparing for an early flight the next day. the breakfast buffet is marvelous.

Clean, well laid out rooms with all the mod cons. Decor runs to attractive Scandinavian spareness. Breakfast buffet is very ample and it's a short distance to the airport.I recommend the rate that includes free WiFi, mini-bar and movies - a great savings.

The hotel is perfectly located for a stopover stay between flight connections being both near to the airport & a 15 min tram ride to the centre of Zuirich. Rooms are clean & modern with freindly & helpful staff always at hand

Was in Zurich on business for a few nights. This hotel is convenient to the airport with a tram stop right outside the entrance to the hotel. I was able to take the tram to and from both the airport and my meeting location. Room service was quick and tasty. Staff were wonderful. Would definitely stay here again.

Easy access to the tram. The tram system is easy as long as you are in by 12:30 am, after that it just stops wherever you are, we ended up walking several blocks and then catching a cab. Thankfully Zurich felt VERY safe so this was all good. Didn't eat at the hotel, too expensive. Did enjoy a beer at the bar and a great jar of complimentary peanuts. :)

Hotel is well-situated for airport access with clean, contemporary design. It advertises a bar/lounge but was not in service. Restaurant offered limited fare, well-prepared yet outrageously overpriced. The bad...bath linens did not accommodate the number of guests in the room and after 2 requests of the housekeeper and 1 of the manager on duty, none ever arrived! Sharing towels and washclothes isn't fun! The ugly...with one exception, the desk staff was incompetent and profoundly rude! No response to the linen request; failure to provide the requested wake-up call therefore barely making the last plane out of Zurich; DOUBLE CHARGING for the room and refusal to review the final statement of charges until I produced my own copies of prepayment and only then begrudgingly reversed the improper charges; overall indifference to proper guest service. The really, really ugly...the male front desk clerk literally fighting with a guest on the reception area floor because their room had been sold to someone else! An appalling experience and therefore I could never recommend this hotel to anyone.

Great room, quite, many english tv channels.

The staff were competent but not overly friendly. The rooms are small by American standards but not by Zurich standards for the price. There is free plug in high speed internet in the room or you can pay for wireless. There is no shuttle to and from the airport so you will have to take the tram or taxi. The room was extremely quiet and neat. We were by the elevators and you could not hear people coming and going. Also, unlike America, where even when you put up the "Do not Disturb" sign, you will still get woken up by people checking out and housekeeping banging around in other rooms during the morning hours. Not so here. Completely silent, even with a full hotel. It is about 25 minutes by tram to Central, the main part of town, but easily accessible. The station is right outside the door and the tram runs almost around the clock with the exception of Sundays with fewer runs. Very nice public transportation.

Staff was very nice and helpful. For Americans - food prices are considerably higher that we are used to in the US. Since near the airport not many other restaurant selections w/out going into town. Lounge/elevator very smokey if you are not used to smoke.

We had two days between the end of our Rhine cruise and return to the U.S. Lindbergh-Platz was a perfect location ... really short walk from the hotel to the tram stop and a quick trip downtown. On our departure day, just a couple of tram stops to the airport. ATM just around the corner from the hotel. Front desk sold tram tickets. Good buffet breakfast in the morning (not included in room rate). Roomy, quiet, comfortable, modern room.

Best hotel of the three we stayed at during this trip. Plenty of parking (particularly important in Zurich). Quiet,unobtrusive, but efficient staff. Could use an additional chair in room. Excellent food. Surprisingly moderate price for this type hotel.

Quick stay between flights. Good location and connectivity, not many restaurants close by

The hotel is very clean and modern. The internet connection was extremely slow and did not transmit well. The hotel is in a business park some distance from Zurich Main Station. There is a trolley right outside the hotel that, with connections, allow you to make it to Zurich Main station in about 20 minutes. Parking is outside, when it is not full. The staff were friendly, BUT, there never appeared to be sufficient staff to suppor the front desk needs. You often had to wait in line to obtain an answer to a simple question.

We chose the Novotel Zurich Airport hotel because of its proximity to the airport. The train stopped right in front of the hotel and traveled to the airport in about 9 minutes. Very convenient! The room was quiet, clean. European design and very functional. Bed and pillows were great! Great free breakfast buffet!

Good location to go to the airport specially early in the morning. Tram 10 stops next to the hotel making it convenient to go to the airport or to downtown. Clean, somewhat spacious, organized.

Staff was very friendly and helpful. Equipped with all of the necessary amenities. Hotel had a great decor. However, the location of the hotel was not great. Had to take a shuttle to get to anywhere in downtown Zurich. Not the worst thing in the world, but it would have been nice to be able to walk to Zurich from the hotel. Other than the location, everything was great. All in all, happy with my experience.

They had a beautiful bar with full services. The restaurant had outstanding menu with quality food.It was recently remodeled.

the good, the bad and the really ugly...

GetawayWithFriends

Hotel is well-situated for airport access with clean, contemporary design. It advertises a bar/lounge but was not in service. Restaurant offered limited fare, well-prepared yet outrageously overpriced. The bad...bath linens did not accommodate the number of guests in the room and after 2 requests of the housekeeper and 1 of the manager on duty, none ever arrived! Sharing towels and washclothes isn't fun! The ugly...with one exception, the desk staff was incompetent and profoundly rude! No response to the linen request; failure to provide the requested wake-up call therefore barely making the last plane out of Zurich; DOUBLE CHARGING for the room and refusal to review the final statement of charges until I produced my own copies of prepayment and only then begrudgingly reversed the improper charges; overall indifference to proper guest service. The really, really ugly...the male front desk clerk literally fighting with a guest on the reception area floor because their room had been sold to someone else!
