The SPA is today a very pleasant thing to have in many gyms and hotels even homes. One will always want to go to such to relax. It was very surprising that a big hotel like yours should have a spa which is mixed and that is not openly indicated in its brouchers and reception. The receptionist at the spa... More

I visited many times swissotel in Zürich and I was always very satisfied! Unfortunately this time was a very bad experience. I was in Zürich from 30 until 31 August 2014, room 1501. The only kind and proactive person was the one at the check-in. She was incredible kind and very professional!!! During my stay all the others people were... More

If you Need a decent hotel near the station this is worth trying. Stayed here loads. Decent rooms, good view if you ask for high floor. Good pool on the top floor and decent bar for working or socialising.

Easy to get to old town area (1 stop away) where most tourist will want to go at least once to wonder around the... More

The hotel is quite a long way out of the Zurich centre but this causes no difficulties because there are tram stops and a train station directly opposite the hotel. What keeps drawing me back is the pool and spa. The gym is really small but is well... More
