“Yon need a deluxe room”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

Been there recently. The room I got at the beginning was a standard room. Old and dark. Since I wanted a double bed i went back to reception and the upgraded me to a deluxe room. This room was fresh, clean with a nespresso machine .

The breakfast was good but what i dont understand is that they not serve also nespresso but regular cafe. Rest was good and solid

location was convenient direct opposit orlikon station with an s bahn direct to the HB Zurich (7 min)

We visited Swissotel in Zurich this Summer in May 2013. It is a very conviniently located Hotel bang opposite the Train station Orelikon which is 2 stations from Zurich HB station.
The Property indeed is wonderful and the high rise building gives you a wonderful view of Zurich and also the Swiss Alps.
The rooms were neat and clean and the Breakfast spread was good too.
Had a nice time at the Hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for the rooms on higher levels for wonderful views.

Overall experience was memorable, great service the moment I check in, from front office to guest service staffs to the buffet breakfast staffs. Very friendly, and helpful, in all my enquiry . Especially the guest service counter, was very helpful in helping me with all my train trip schedule and explaining the details. This was my first trip to switzerland, and I feel very at home. I will certainly go back to this hotel on my next trip.

Room Tip: High floor facing the train station

Over the years I have been a frequent vistor to this hotel, for business trips... Can't believe I have not written about this before now !
Hotel is a very clean and efficient place in Oerlikon, right across the road from the train station, and very close to the Airport. It is also only a short train journey to Zurich HB, the central train terminus... so makes it a very convenient place to stay. Also because it is not right in Central Zurich, it is not quite as expensive as equivalent hotels in that location.
TIP: Taxis are VERY expensive in Zurich, especially from the airport. Just stick to the trains and trams, as they are clean, easy to navigate, cheap and run like clockwork.
This hotel is good if you are stuck out here on business trips for days on end, as hotel is surrounded by shopping centres and plenty of bars and restaurants too. My favourite has to be 'Rolies Steak House', where they serve sizzling steaks on hot stones ! Get the concierge to book for you, as this place gets extremely busy !
OK, hotel itself is extremely clean and efficient, as you would expect in Zurich. Staff all speak perfect English, are very courteous and very helpful. I like the fact that I am now such a regular visitor I am known by name and always given a nice room,with a lovely Lavazza coffee machine ! Rooms are clean and spacious, and there is even a 'Kissen' Pillow menu... with umpteen choices ! Despite hotel being directly opposite the train station, I have never had any issues with noise.
Bar is nice, and does get busy early evening - of course being Switzerland, expect to pay alot for beers and even more for spirits !
Breakfast is a comprehensive affair, and they even have their own Croissant oven in the restaurant. Within the hotel complex there is a Starbucks and a chocolate shop too !
The dinner in the restaurant can be a bit limited, so I usually wander out to eat. As I said, Rolies Steak house is great. Alternatively there is a nice Italian place across the road, or further up there is a Tex-Mex type place - I think it is called "Cheyenne" ?? Finally. if you really can't be bothered there is a BURGER KING on one side of the hotel, and a McDONALDS on the other side !

Room Tip: Fortunately I have always been given a nice room, that is on one of the higher floors. Maybe this is...

Stayed in the hotel with my wife and 9 years old daughter. Location is pretty good as as not too far from airport and very near from a train station. Room were clean and spacious (relatively in Europe not as spacious as what one would see in USA). Bathroom was small but functional and clean.

Service was very good. We did not eat in hotel other than breakfast, so can't comment on food but breakfast was surely up to the mark, what we expect from Swissotel.

Overall, hotel was a very good value for the money.

Room Tip: Higher floors are surely better as its located in a busy area and higher the floor, quieter they wil...

Swissotel is a good chain of hotels and this Zurich site is no exception. Note, it is not downtown Zurich but Oerlikon which is a town halfway between airport and city centre. However, the train station is right across the street, it is a 3-5 min ride to either destination and a taxi can get you there in a pinch. The benefit is a very nice hotel but not as expensive as downtown hotels of similar quality. I recommend it.

Room Tip: stay up high and get a view of the city and mountains.
