This little business travellers' hotel was extremely well-situated, a four minute walk to the Oerlikon train station and #11 tram. The #10 & 14 trams are less than a block away. The reception sells tram tickets - along with advice on which trams to take downtown (a very pleasant 15 minutes). Also, several good restaurants are within 1 or 2... More

Clean and cosy rooms, good food in Braserie, tasty breakfasts, helpful and friendly staff. What's missing is coffee & tea making facilities. I personally prefer carpets to naked wood on the floor but it is only a preference of mine, not an objection.

I stayed two nights at STERNEN on a business trip and I enjoyed it very much. Friendly people at reception; good restaurants with a lot of traditional dishes; nice and clean rooms with all the equipment you need: a comfortable bed, spacious rooms, good working table. The breakfast was good and the service was normal and polite . Some remark:... More

Stayed here for 4 days. The rooms are spacious, and mostly clean (did encounter some hairs in the shower). The staff at the reception desk is helpful and friendly. Incidentily, you can buy public transport tickets at the reception desk, which is very practical. On the downside, the beds are extremely firm and the street is very noisy (traffic). Due... More

Dear guest Thank you very much for your comment on Tripadvisor and the time you have dedicated to inform us about your opinion. Despite the fact, that we provided an extra soft mattress as well as addtional pillows and duvets, we highly regret, that the mattress was still too hard for you. As we are in the city centre, we...

Stayed in this hotel for 5 nights and enjoyed the experience. I was given a spacious room with a balcony on the 5th floor. The room was warm and clean, the bed was comfortable and toiletries and slippers were available. The working desk was good and with enough light. The room had a full body length mirror and a hair...

If you are tired of staying at the larger and impersonal brand name hotels in Oerlikon then this is the place for you. It is just 5 min walk from the train station. The restaurant next door is of high quality and meet my requests for gluten free with a smile. I can also put the bill on the room.... More

I recently spent 6 days at the Sternen Oerlikon hotel. As others wrote, the access to the airport is excellent, 5 mins (!) by track, and 15 minutes by tram which drops you off very close to the hotel. The tram stops are clearly marked with the name of the stop, and inside the tram it shows the next stops,... More

I spent two nights as a business traveller. The room was big enough for me. Everything looked new and perfectly clean. Once the window was closed, you couldn't hear a sound of the traffic. staff super friendly and nice. Thank you

This is my second stay in 4 months to this hotel. Excellent staff. Clean, efficient and fantastic access to the tram. I appreciate the convenient distance to the hotel from the airport and yet an easy tram ride to city center. Buying a 24 hour tram pass or longer at the airport makes the most sense. To find the Tram... More
