Swissotel Zurich

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Hotel is a large building right across the street from the train station. Rooms are quite and neat. Not so large. Hotel has a great pool on the 33rd floor. Nearby are plenty of restaurants and shops. A good hotel for a short visit.

Really enjoyed the quiet clean room and kind staff. Excellent meals in the hotel restaurant if needed. Garage parking. The train to Zurich is literally outside the front door. A great choice!

Excellent. Very clean and comfortable stay. We enjoyed this hotel.

I like the location of the hotel. And the breakfast.

Very comfortable and convenient. Staff very friendly and efficient.

Great value ,next to metro very clean room ,stuff very friendly

Had a 24-layover from Istanbul to Washington. The Swissotel was an excellent place to cool my heels. The neighborhood was not particularly exciting, but the rooms themselves were wonderful. Very soft bed, clean bathrooms, and solid amenities. The front desk was very prompt and helpfu.

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.

Close to train station & downtown. Very nice staff and wonderful breakfast.

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.

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.

The staff is very helpful and allowed us to check in early on our early arrival. The room was very clean and the ammenities were good. The pool is on the crowded side as well as the sauna.

pool on 34th floor 87 degrees farenheit great i have been their several and will be back

Check-in very friendly. Very friendly staff. Good location for city transportation. Close to airport. Issues : 1. Water pressure too low in shower/bath. 2. Dryer electric cord was not long enough - you had to blow-dry hair standing over the toilet. 3. Shampoo supplied, but no conditioner. 4. Room temperature was hard to control. 5. No breakfast - Breakfast not included @ 146.51 USD/per night. 6. Upon check-out, was told we had taken 2 beers from the minibar, which was not the case. 7. The hotel describes great views - our room was high, but we looked at train tracks.

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.

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.

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.

Stayed here for one night. Location is a few min train ride away from downtown Zurich and the hotel is right in front of the train station. Great location. Staff was incredibly helpful. Room was comfortable with all the necessary amenities. Highly recommended. Internet access does cost extra, but overall a great stay.

great position,clean very goodhotel,nice staff,very helpful, room very comfortable.

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..
