“Really cute place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Stayed 1 night before an early morning flight home. Really cute place that tries to be very Swiss. Great staff, dinner was good (rosti) and the breakfast buffet was enourmous. Room was quite large and very clean. Also has a shuttle to the airport which makes things easy!

Spent a night at the Ibis Zurich Messe-Airport after deciding that we needed to stay closer to the airport to catch an early flight. The rooms were small and pokey, like most airport hotels. Breakfast in the restaurant was nice with enough to choose from to keep most happy. The staff were warm and friendly with some good recommendations on where to walk to for dinner. The shuttle service is excellent and free so would recommend to anyone looking for a well priced option close to the Zurich airport.

This s my fourth stay at this hotel. I chose it for the price and location. I was pleasantly surprised to see that it has been updated and so the experience was better than I expected. Everything was new, clean and bright. The rooms are small but very functional A nice large shower and good water pressure. It has a good breakfast buffet and at 15CHF it is a good value given the prices in Switzerland. We stayed two nights - one at the beginning of our trip and again on the last night. The dining room has a simple but complete menu and serves one of the best Rosti dinners I have had in my many trips to Switzerland. My husband and I split a dinner and a green salad as the size is very generous. We each had a glass of wine (Fendant) and the bill was less than 35CHF. The hotel is about a 15 min transfer from the airport and this is included in the price. That same transfer would cost 32chf by taxi. The advance booking rate was less than $100 Canadian, so given the quality of the accommodation, the transfer and the reasonable food, it is an excellent value property. The staff were friendly and helpful. I will definitely stay there again on my next visit.

Room Tip: It is in an area with other hotels and business. Not an area where there is anything to see walking...

Clean hotel close to airport + short walk to major tram line to downtown Zurich. Great value for an expensive city. Rooms are small but big enough for two people for 1 night. Did not eat at restaurant this trip but have eaten there before. Hotel renovated in the past 3 years.

Everything looked & worked just like in any other hotel of that chain. Actually, I noticed I stay at Ibises quite a lot, because they offer me a predictably good experience at relatively low prices. No exception here - same very comfortable bed, same overpriced breakfast buffet. The only problem was that the room felt a bit cold and apparently the heating didn't work even though I set it to 25C - maybe they save on energy costs by limiting how much one can heat his hotel room.

Hotel is located quite a long way away from the city center and also the airport, but very close to the fair grounds ("Messe"). Zurich's excellent public transport systems makes this a small problem, as one can get to the very center of the city in under 20 minutes.

We had to stay here when our flight out of Zurich was unavoidably cancelled . The airline quickly made us arrangements at this hotel and we were shuttled through the snowy streets with the rest of the passengers , with Swiss efficiency . We were at the back of the queue at reception , everyone was getting pretty fractious and there was a bit of hostility . The staff , however took this in their stride and never cracked in what must have been a stressful situation . They quickly allocated rooms , got everyone sorted out with meals and generally calmed a lot of disgruntled people . The restaurant staff were equally helpful and very friendly . They went out of their way to make sure everyone was satisfied .
The rooms were clean and functional . One small thing that I really appreciated was that in the morning the gentleman on reception sent us off to get breakfast on the promise that he'd come and find us as soon as the shuttle bus arrived . A good bit of service , I thought .
I'd be quite happy to stay here again in better circumstances . Full marks to the staff . Thanks .
