Excellent hotel for business-travellers; just 1 minute to the station with trains to Zurich city centre more or less every few minutes. The rooms are comfortable with a fabolous view over Oerlikon. When checking-in at 10.30 p.m., there were quite a few people in front of the reception desk with all kind of issues, the desk being staffed by two... More

Staff was committed to my issues. All I need is a stay without any issues and so it was. Location was very good to reach almost every part of Zurich. Had a great sleep and very clean room. Strongly recommend for business travelers.

Excellent stay while on business in Zurich and Basel. Comfortable room, efficient service, clean, great bed and helpful front desk staff. Across the street from the train station in a low key business district and only a couple of stops away from Zurich main station in one direction and the Zurich airport in the other. Recommend!

Nicely re-done hotel with great staff and super convenient to Airport!! Food and restaurant service was great also. Remember to train it in given convenient access. Our only mistake was cabbing it from downtown instead of using train.

Good location in zurich, good beds and pillow menu (though they had very few available), looks like it was recently renovated. Restaurant was average at best. Pool was very nice with good views of Zurich from the top floor.

Great location across the street from the Oerlikon train station and very close to Zurich airport and downtown (Zurich HB). Service was personal and very helpful with recommendations, bfast buffet was impressive. I'd consider going back again to this hotel, especially if you can get some of the good online deals.

We spent 3 lovely nights in Swissotel Zurich, just one stop from airport. Easy to get to (recommend the train) and found the modern ammenities and decor a treat of luxury and sophistication. Room was simple and clean. (you will need more pillows so check out the 'pillow menu' and warm pillows will quickly be delivered to your room). Staff... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in June as part of our 10-day Switzerland tour and I must say that this was one of my favourite hotels. We had a lovely corner room on the 26th floor and it gave us great views of the Zurich's suburbs. Hotel's location is fantastic as it's just one station away from the Airport... More
