This was my first time to stay at a Swissotel - it was fantastic. The hotel is across the street from Oerlikon station and very convenient to get to the hotel via train from the airport. 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

This was the last hotel stop of our 10 day vacation before flying back to the USA. It was recommended to us by a friend back home who told us it was "right by the train station". And it IS but I didn't realize there are several train stations in Zurich and I had assumed it was by the main... More

I have stayed here several times, on business and with my family. 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

A good modern hotel ideally located opposite the train station with easy access all over Zurich. The rooms were clean and comfortable, the staff were all very helpful and friendly and there is a very nice pool on the 32nd floor with great views over Zurich and gym next to it. We had breakfast which was varied and overall pretty... More

This hotel was modern, comfortable, and frankly did it's job very well for us. Proximity to train station is key with this property allowing for fast access to and from Zürich airport and the city center. Built for the business traveler the room was full of amenities such as a suit presser, Nespresso machine, (which is awesome), DVD player, etc.... More

This is my second home in Zurich, where I spend more than a hundred nights a year for business purposes. Modern, clean, and good level of comfort. Ideally located in the city, five minutes by train from the airport, and right at the Oerlikon train station. All amenities are almost perfect, outside of the training sport room could be better...

Three years after the rooms remain the same but reception was refurbished in a more minimal style (not bad). I re come d that the bathtubs should become showers in order to... More
