“Great Hotel; Friendly welcoming staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

We stayed two nights en route to Zurich and chose this hotel from review on Trip advisor. Their hotel website is very helpful with directions to the hotel and we had no trouble following them and catching the train from the main station which only took 5 mins. Our welcome was very professional and friendly - a basket of fresh fruit is by the front door which is a nice touch! Our room was on the 4th floor and was generous - we had more than enough room. liked the touch of 2 complimentary bottles of mineral water - there is no fridge or tea/coffee facilities but given that we hardly spent any time there except to sleep not a problem and there is a small bar area in the foyer if needed. Bathroom clean and great shower. Great soundproofing - didn't hear a thing from any other room.

Breakfast was delicious with the usual array of various meats, cheeses, rolls, pastries, good range of cereals, yoghurts, fresh fruit and eggs.
location - whilst a little way out of the main tourist area we chose this hotel on affordability as well and truly it exceeded our expectations. The transport card is 24 hrs and about 8 CHF each and trams 14, 10 and 11 were within a stone's throw to whisk us back in for our sightseeing - approx 15--20 min trip.

Room Tip: We had room 415 which looked out over the back of houses towards the church -

If you need to stay in Oerlikon area (you can get from there to the city center by train in 7 mins or by tram in 20 mins) Sternen Oerlikon is a very good choice at a very fair price for Zurich. Personally I like it more than Swisshotel Oerlikon which does offer a better view to be fair. The design is very nice, modern, minimalist but comfortable, very clean with very helpful staff. The breakfast is good and the coffee excellent. The restaurant/bar very nice to grab a bite or for a late drink.

Stayed for two nights and couldn't be happier with location from airport and in quieter/cheaper location than Central. Room was beautiful and modern and front desk very happy to answer all enquiries. Breakfast Buffett whilst only hot food eggs (3 ways) and toast, is just whats needed to start the day with all the other delicacies Zurich tourism has to offer. Taxi from airport approx €40 whilst tram only a couple of Euro one way. Tram stop only 15 steps from front door and approx 20min to HB and inner city shopping.

This hotel was ideally located, very easy tram ride from the airport and the stop is just outside the hotel. There is no way I would want to stay closer to Zurich which is about another 10 minute tram ride from the hotel, as this hotel is in a lovely precinct with markets on Saturday and a lovely pub around the corner. Zurich centre is good to visit but good to get out of also! The staff at the hotel are excellent, breakfast is adequate, rooms are small but very very clean and well maintained with a really nice shower. Overall a really good hotel experience!

We stayed for a week at Sternen hotel during our trip to Zurich. We read reviews on Trip Advisor about it when we were searching for a good budget accommodation and Sternen fit the bill. It is a nice 3 star hotel that is easy on the pocket. Our arrival was greeted by a warm staff with inviting smiles that warmed our hearts. We knew then and there that Sternen was the correct choice for us. The fact that us tired souls got treated with welcome drinks was great and we loved their generosity, a very touching gesture indeed. Our rooms were lovely and the bathroom as simply delightful. The toiletries in the bathroom were ample and the room amenities like TV etc, worked well. The place was very nicely maintained. We were not even charged for the breakfast. They even provided a fridge. We had an amazing time here.

This is a 3 star hotel budget hotel with first class services. On our arrival we received a welcome drink which was a nice surprise. The room we booked was with a big balcony and made for a nice view. The room had facilities like a safe; hairdryer. The bathroom had toiletries necessary for a comfortable stay. One could get a fridge after paying a meager amount. The breakfast was a big healthy spread consisting of cereals, orange juice, eggs etc. They also provided free internet connection too. The hotel is a customer friendly budget heaven.

We stayed at this 3 star hotel for 4 days and enjoyed first class services here. On our arrival the hotel offered a welcome drink which was a touching, guest friendly gesture. Our room was small but nice and cozy and cleans with a balcony with a great view. It had various modern facilities like a safe, a hairdryer, TV etc. The bathroom with spick and span and had various toiletries that were more than sufficient. We were not charged anything for the breakfast which was plentiful, healthy and tasty with orange juice, eggs etc. The hotel’s hospitality made our stay memorable and comfortable.
