“Nice hotel. Excellent breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

Very nice hotel. A spa on the top floor (32) with a great view, swimming pool (with jets for those who want to swim in one place...), a small gym and two saunas (that were closed for renovation but should open in the beginning of November). The room is nice and spacious. Breakfast is very good - a lot of different things to choose from.

Room Tip: The high floors have a great view. You might stop a few times on the way down in the elevator to pic...

I had the opportunity to follow a training in this hotel. Rooms are very comfortable, service is impeccable, organisation is very good.
Breakfast is nice, and the dinner we had in the evening was very good as well. Nothing but positive experiences !

We spent there the night before taking off the next morning and is rellay the place to be. The rooms are fair sized, Swiss-cleanliness and very well located. The train is (literally) next door and it takes 5 minutes to get to the airport. The restaurant is not really something (service good but food so-so). Fast breakfast in the lobby at Starbucks very convenient.

This hotel is so convenient. Located in the nice town of Oerlikon, with shops and restaurants in walking distance. The train/trolley station is directly across from the hotel, and its a quick ride into Zurich city. Nice restaurant and bar downstairs named "Le Mu". Also attached to hotel is a very nice Starbucks, and also a patisserie (pastry and chocolates).

Stayed here before flying home after a few weeks in Italy & Switzerland. Attentive staff (Luca the Concierge was excellent). Hotel restaurant excellent. Few bumps on check in with room choice not being available but not a big deal given one night stay. Very clean, Quick checkout and one train stop from Zurich airport.

Stayed in Swissotel Zurich in September 2013 for 2 nights. Overall we had a great staying experience. Staff is very friendly and especially people at the reception do their best to make you feel treated as very special.
We were given the option to choose between a high floor room for single occupancy or a lower floor double room. We selected the first option, so our room was a bit small for 2 people but we were quite high and room was very quite, we could hardly hear and noise from the train station.
Pros: Very friendly staff, nice breakfast and great food at the restaurant. You can borrow for free umbrellas from the reception, Oerlikon train station just across the street, tram station also right next to hotel
Cons: Not close to Zurich center, wifi is bit expensive

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor room to avoid noise from nearby train station
