We received a 5 digit pin via email to retrieve our transponder to enter into the apartment a few days after confirming our booking. It was close to a 7-minute walk from the Oerlikon train station, a stop away from Zurich HB main station. There wasn't a clear sign to the entrance of the inn, we had to ask the... More

It's not even a hotel. It's really an apartment. I received booking cofirmation from Expedia but upon arrival, was told by the (detached) restaurant of the same name that I needed a code to enter on the machine on the outside of the building. I had not received an email containing such a code so was forced to make a... More

It's taking 'self-service' to the extreme. This is my second night here and already I have helped two stranded couples from Korea and Australia who could not get their keys. You MUST be in possession of the 5-digit key collection code to punch into a box next to the door (not the box at the door), to have your key... More

Pros: affordable price for Zurich, good location with easy connection to the main train station and airport, rooms have private bathroom. Cons: no reception, so nobody to help if you need anything, key boxes are not very easy to use, almost no housekeeping (they occasionally change towels, nothing else. We stayed for 4 nights and there was visible dirt on... More

If you are new to Zurich, and need assistance/support/information on your stay, you will want to choose another hotel. We had booked the hotel for it's wonderful price in Zurich, but failed to read all the extensive reviews until the night before. I even called the day before to get the key code, but was not told that since we... More

The good part of this hotel is the location. Very near to Oerlikon station. Tram 11 is the mode of transport around. Zurich Airport, HB both are connected via frequent trains from Oerlikon. Rooms are also OK. Now coming to the not so good part. I don't understand how a 3 star facility won't have a reception. Moreover, there is... More

This is a well-located, well-priced and no-frills place to lay your head for the night while you visit an expensive city. The room is clean although they should consider replacing some worn looking furniture. There is no elevator in this hotel and if you have a lot of luggage or have a hard time going up and down the stairs,... More

To be honest we didn't have any trouble checking in, just call beforehand to get the code for the keybox if it's not sent to you prior (which is very straightforward). The location is 2 train stops Zurich HBF but very close to the station, supermarket/shopping centre .etc Beds were very comfortable, rooms well appointed and fast working wifi. For... More

This hotel is not very far from the airport/Zurich Hb but not easy to find. No reception is a biggest problem. Key boxes are not easy to find. No lift in the hotel. After a long flight when there is nobody to help, they expect you to carry your heavy baggage. There stays a phone number to call, but when... More

Small Hotel near train station Oerlikon. My room was very pretty and looked quite new. Was quite small, though. TV/Sat didn't work. Everything els was impeccable. Great value for money. Would definitely stay here again.
