Visiting my old hometown is always a treat for me. Staying at the Illuster Hotel, right at the center and towering over Uster became a treat. It's true, the rooms are a bit run down and the owners are aware of it. Soft renovation started already and I had a glimpse into a newly renovated room which makes me want... More

Stayed for two nights on business. Its very basic and you are really getting what you paid for. No one told us that the reception will be closed after 8pm and if you don't have a mobile to ring the management you will be sleeping outside - its not the most savoury area of Uster either. The rooms are quite... More

Hotel Illuster Located in Uster Switzerland, a few subway stops outside the city center. I arrived in Zurich one evening when a large academic conference was in town. No rooms at any of the Inns I tested. So I got on an S-Bahn heading south, just my intuition. I asked a subway attendant what stop she thought I might find... More

As some of the other reviewers mention it's close to the train station. There is also a pretty good Italian restaurant around the corner. The hotel is rundown, the service level swings from friendly (the employees) to grumpy (the owners) but it's clean. While not expensive by Swiss standards, it is considering what you get for the money. There are... More

Stayed in Switzerland for 3 weeks on business and the hotel was chosen for me. Good location for train station. It is within a shopping centre do that's handy also. There are no frills ... rooms and reception only. Clean all around but a few signs if 'tiredness' here and there. The staff had on & off days. Served It's... More

Hotel is located in a shopping centre, close to the station. Rooms are basic and have a seventies look and feel to them, but they have everything you need incl. a balcony. The view is not great, but this is Uster - which is a convenient rather than a charming town. Breakfast is limited, but alright for a 3* hotel.... More

For the open-air Rolling Stones concert on August 5, 2006 in Dübendorf (Switzerland) we stayed one night in the Illuster Hotel in Uster. The hotel was located in a nice little town and conveniently close to the railways station where we could step on the train to the military airport of Dübendorf where the concert was held. The hotel was... More
