When it comes to service, my usual bench mark is the quality offered by the Taj Group in India,and by those standards, I was pleasantly surprised by Swissotell. The Staff was not only very well informed, they were also extremely helpful and polite. I stayed in the Swissotel for the last leg of my EUrope Trip, and it was a very comfortable and relaxing stay.
Located at Oerilkon, its the first train stop from the Airport. Since there's a train station in the airport itself, reaching the hotel (by train) is perhaps easier than reaching the taxi stand outside the airport! Oerlikon, itself is calm and peaceful, but has a considerable amount of shops and eateries around. So you don't feel "cut-off" from the rest of the city. This being said, the city centre is a 16 minute tram ride away. The bus/ tram/ train station is not more than 25 metres from the main entrance of the hotel.
The rooms are very spacious (I booked a Classic Queen) and have all the amenities one would expect. The mini bar was also well stocked. I did have a slight problem with water from the shower cubicle flowing out, but the management was quick to address this.
All in all, it a great place to stay in Zurich and i would highliy reccomend it to any traveller looking for value for money, comfort and quality service.
