“Good & reliable as a Swiss watch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

Being there on business am not able to advise as to how well located is this hotel from downtown & touristy stuff.

All I know is the hotel is rather unassuming on the outside, located amid what seemed to be a commercial plaza recently built on the site of an old papermill.
Inside though it is modern, functionality perfected to minute detail, good sized rooms, an incredibily roomy walk-in shower, decently sized rooms, perfect bed.
Good breakfast, very good service, spotless clean all-around, caring & attentive staff and very efficient & expedite (sat in line to check in with other 5 guests and what seemed likely to take 30 min or so, took less than 15.
Not to mention the affordable price.
Three minor drawbacks:
because of the location the view is virtually non existent. You cannot see much else but concrete walls or glazed windows from the buildings accross the the plaza's narrow walkways. Natural light is also quite hindered cause of it.

The other one is the washing sink placed literally in the entrance hallway of the suite. Felt a bit awkward. An unneccessary tribute to modern design.

Last but not least, wifi is not free. In 2013, yep.

If, as many reviewers here attest, the hotel is also in decent proximity of the downtown/shopping area then it sits truly high on the consideration list when traveling to Zurich, be it for bussiness or for leisure.

Comfy: Modern bedroom, comfy bed and pillows ☺ for 2 great nights there – great shower - lovely seating area - well supplied with free stuff (little cake on your pillow, water, tea).

Service: professional but friendly… in a word, perfect! We were also celebrating something special and we had heart shaped chocolates all other the bed : it was lovely!

Location location location: Hotel located in Sihlcity shopping mall. Zurich city centre is only a few tram stops away (8’) and guess what? There are of course several trams connecting Sihlcity to city center ;)

Parking: most of the parking are expensive in Zürich and CHF 40 a day is unfortunately a normal rate. The good thing about getting the hotel parking (a private parking section of the Sihlcity) rather that the public one (hourly rate), is that you can get in and out as much as you want (without extra fees) and don’t have to turn around during “hours” to find a place (the Sihlcity parking being often very busy!!!).

Asian Spa on the upper floor: (for 25CHF/pp for 2hrs) loved the Himalayan salt sauna with its entire wall of illumined salt crystals ☺, Japanese steam bath and water bed for relaxation etc. It is a real bliss during winter. Great thing is that you basically leave your bedroom in your bathrobe, get the lift to the Asian spa.

We would definitely stay again in the Four Points Sheraton!

+++ in a nutshell:
- Large, comfortable, modern rooms
- Great shower
- Parking
- Direct access to an independent spa at a discounted rate.
- Kettle and a range of teas
- Free water
- Shopping mall, cinema, restaurants, coop (huge supermarket opened until 9pm) and bars next door
- Tram stop in front of Sihlcity
- Security: you need your card to control the elevator to the rooms
- Very quiet!

Easily approachable via tram station just next to the Hotel. Shopping centre in the neighbourhood with all the shops and variety of eating out option. Business centre was under renovation during our visit. However a very spacious and well equiped rooms. No eating option during night foodie please watch out.

My husband and I stayed here 1 night at the beginning and again at the end of our trip a week later. The staff was great! Always eager to help and very friendly. Hotel is in a great location as well, a few eateries just as you walk outside and central Zurich is a 5 min tram ride away (tram is also just outside the hotel). We really enjoyed our stay here.

Just stayed here for the first time and had a lovely stay. The location is not completely central in Zurich, but there's enough close by, and you are only a ten minute tram ride to the city center. The staff at the hotel was consistently friendly and helpful, particularly the front desk staff who was always eager to be of service.

Room was very clean and nicely appointed. I have only good things to say about this property. I will be back when I return to Zurich.

Frequently stay here on business for 1-2 nights. Good location - right opposite tram stop with easy link to main part of town and train station. Modern hotel, good facilities - especially the Spa, though paying 10CHF to use the gym is not ideal, the equipment is fantastic! Fasionable decor and spacious, well equipped rooms. Service is very good, with friendly, welcoming staff.

if you are sick and tired of paying sky high prices for branded hotels in Zurich, this is a decent option - especially if you are a SPG Platinum member.

Relatively convenient to everything (very good tram service a 1 minute walk from the hotel), hotel is very clean, staff is very friendly and competent. Rooms are fine, breakfast buffet is excellent

Don't expect a "Luxury Hotel" feel here but they don't pretent to be one..

HINT - ask for a room that faces the River as some of the rooms on the other side of the building face the stone wall of the building across the alley.
