“no eateries around, expensive meals”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

but nice shuttle service to airport and good but expensive breakfast. head to zurich old town for dinner, not here. the train station is only a stone throw away - literally right behind the hotel. great bathroom and the drinks and fruits at the front is a nice touch.

Overall I liked this airport. You can easily access the airport and train station. It was a nice, modern, clean room. The only drawback is the lack of air conditiioning. If you're traveling in summer and are used to the convenience of keeping your room set to 70 degrees, you might want to consider paying more to keep a cool room.

It was also only a few minutes via train to central Zurich.

I traveled from Basel to the Zurich airport by train, and chose this hotel because of its proximity to the airport. A shuttle runs regularly from the airport to the hotel, and my flight from Zurich to Madrid left early the next morning, under these circumstances, a wise choice. However, if I planned to visit Zurich, I would choose a hotel in a more centralized location.

A well decorated, bright, immaculate room with a small terrace welcomed me. The restaurant offered a fair meal. However, the waitress, likely new on the job, kept asking me if everything was okay, this happens often in Canada, my home country, and seldom happens in Europe or Mexico, where I now live. I find the continual, "Is everything okay?" question annoying. This may or may not be standard practice at this hotel, and to complain about such a thing gives an impression of pettiness.

The one legitimate complaint is with regards to the shuttle driver. He took it upon himself to arrogantly issue unsolicited instructions. Firstly, he grilled me to ensure I had a reservation. Then, he demanded to know which airline I was taking the next day. Next, he told me which terminal the airline departed from. He continued by telling me which shuttle to take the next morning. He repeated his instructions several times, as if I were a fool. Since he did not treat anyone else taking the shuttle this way, I can only conclude he wrongly believed that because I'm a woman traveling alone I need help. It was very annoying.

Dear Guest,
First of all I would like to thank you for your detailled comment and your rating. I am glad to hear you had a good journey all in all, the choice of hotel, the early flight and to location close to the airport. I apologize for the "annoying" shuttle driver, I am sure he did not want to treat you like a fool, but I am very sorry if you felt like that. We will react for sure and brief our staff seriously.
The question "is everthing okay?" is very common and polite in Switzerland, you might asking the question in english in a different way, but in Switzerland most people expect this question, it shows the honest interest of the staff, how the meal / drink is and gives you the opportunity to order anything else or give us your opinion.
I hope to serve you with this information.
Kind regards,
Your Hotel Allegra Team

Stayed here as it was cheaper than staying in Zurich. Just 1 train stop away from Zurich, it is very convenient for us.
Room was very clean even though sheets were a tad old.
Very near Kloten train station.

I am a freqent traveller to Zurich (business) and probably have been to most hotels around the airport. While most of them are ok - Allegra has become my no. 1. Reachable by airport shuttle (leaves on the hour and .30) in 10 minutes (shuttle leaves on the arrival floor between terminal 1 and 2), the hotel offers spacious and very clean rooms. The rooms have showers only - no bathtubes which is no disadvantage for me. In most of the rooms, the carpets have yet been removed and replaced by decent wooden floors. The rooms offer HD-flat TVs, fridge (no minibar - but complimenary bottled water) and FREE (yes!) wifi-internet which is very speedy! Rooms are quite. Breakfast is rich while you have the choice between a quick buffet (around CHF 10) and full continental breakfast buffet (around CHF 20). Check-In/ Out is ALWAYS quick and friendly. Rates vary - but usually are very competitive (for a Zurich airport-hotel). The hotel is located within 3 minutes walking distance from the Kloten trainstation from where you easily reach Zurich downtown in 10 minutes by train. Complimentary parking provided (outdoor). If you want to save on a pricy stay downtown for a leisure - this hotel might also be a good alternative.
