Stayed here with work and wish I hadn't. If you are British or don't like smoke than stay away.
It was £70 a night for a business rate with rooms like Travelodge.
The rooms are small, with the TV on shelf so you can only watch it in bed, and no easy chair to sit on (nowhere to put it!). No space to put the laptop down except a 2 foot wide space under the TV. I eventually found a striplight under the shelf to cast some light on what I was doing. The usual problem with the TV, of course, that CNN is the only English channel.
There is a public Italian restaurant on the ground floor where most people eat, but so many of them smoke. There is a non-smoking bit which they don't really like you going in at breakfast, so I had to put up with chain smokers several days. The food is passable during the evening, and if you want cold breakfast food, eg cheese, fruit, rolls etc it's OK. I prefer hot food, but the bacon was inedible, the sausages lukewarm, and the scrambled egg old.
There are no facilities to relax except a bar (with smoke of course): no fitness room or pool. Reception could speak English OK, but the restaurant staff weren't so hot. It was lucky I was with two German speakers, otherwise it might have been a lot more diifficult.
There was a trade fair on in Zurich so our travel agents couldn't find anything else under £250 a night, otherwise all three of us would have moved.
A colleague was in the Arte, and hated that so much she transferred to the Hostellerie Geroldsville, which is run by the same family as the Ticino, and was even less thrilled.
There is only one other restaurant in Dietikon that we could findand that was Italian as well, so not exactly a lot of choise. Zurich centre is the best bet.
