“Nice Swiss Touch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

Transatlantic flights to Europe tend to usually arrive very early in the morning, very inconvenient if you wiish to check in to any hotel unless of course you are willing to dish out 50 or 60 percent of the usual room rate to obtain early accomodation. I usually request in writting earlier accomodation if it is complimentary to freshen up and go on for my meetings - I did send my request by email but did not hear back from them! upon checking in at about 07:30 AM last week the receptionist realized that they failed to respond to my email and I was immediately checked in with a free upgrade! Now that is what I call classy. the rooms are spacious, nicely decorated, bright and provides all aminities including a Nespresso machine. their Dim Sum restaurant is very well priced and I appreciated the convenience of their shuttle service to the airport which convenitentlky starts at 5:45 AM ideal if you are leaving on earli\y flights out of Zurich - the tram which serves city center is 5 minutes walking distance, so overall if you are looking for a 5 star well priced hotel with good service you cannot go wrong with the Moevenpick - I will definitly return!

We stayed here before flying home after a 12 day trip. The hotel was perfect: good breakfast, really nice staff and wonderful beds. After all of the "quaint, old hotels" we stayed in on the trip, it was really nice to be in a modern hotel with all of the amenities in the room. We slept very well in the very quiet room(didn't hear a singel plane or car.) and had a very short ride to the airport. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a stay close to the Zurich Airport.

As a one night stay before flying home we choose the hotel not knowing what to exspect. Shuttle bus was on time and within 3-4 minutes we were in the hotel. Friendly helpfull staff and a complimentary drink on arrival was a great start. Room had everything you could want. Easy 5 minute walk to local train station to get into Zurich with directions and tickets available from reception. Dinner in the inhouse restaurant was delightfull, but very busy, might pay to book. Breakfast was in the same restaurant and again excellent. Shuttle bus the next day was as usual for the Swiss, ontime and within 3-4 minutes we were at the arrival door. Great stay.

Again I stayed one night there. Again I was totally happy. Reception staff is so friendly and helfpfull, at check-in you get offered a prosecco or orange juice. Hotel is quiet. There is a highway behind but no problem with noice. Superior Rooms are upper floor what is better in comfort. I liked very much the bar. Staff as well there very very good. Shuttlebus is quite ofthen running to airport. Good beds to sleep well, clean rooms. Its just better to pay a little bit more and book this Hotel, cause for me its the best near airport.

Spent a night here with three kids on our last night of a 10 day trip in Italy. Great place to end a trip. Amazing staff, free upgrades, excellent food, clean rooms that were small but modern and cool. Only complaint was the internet wss a little expensive and they only had two house computers with printers which always had a big line of people waiting to print boarding passes.

Stayed here twice now and both times it has been quick and very easy to transfer to/from the airport. Friendly checkin with complimentary freshly squeezed orange juice while we were in the lobby area. Rooms are quiet and very comfortable. Spotless shower/bathroom area. Nespresso coffee machine in the room (although did not try it out). Breakfast has a wide range of options in a cheerful and sunny dining room. Perfect for an overnight stay in between long haul flights.

Great hotel, especially considering that it is an airport hotel: free shuttle bus from/to the airport, friendly / efficient check-in (we received a glass of sparkling wine as a welcome drink, which was a nice touch), fast elevators, clean / spacious room and bathroom, nice décor, etc. All in all I would recommend this hotel to anybody who has to spend the night at Zürich Airport. HOWEVER, I would not recommend eating there, as the food was pretty bad (unusual for Mövenpick), the service was lousy, and the restaurant had the charm of a cafeteria. But the icing on the cake is what you pay for all of this. I assume the Swiss are used to those prices, and good for them to have such a strong Swiss Franc at this time, but if you are from the EU or the United States, the prices will blow your mind (we spent 2 weeks on a wine & food vacation around Northern Italy and Southern Germany, and we had main courses in Michelin starred restaurants that were cheaper than the bad burger we ate at the least expensive restaurant in this hotel – let me explain: we are “traveling foodies” and we spend a lot of money on good food worldwide, and we usually never eat burgers, but we picked them here, as people eating next to us who had ordered regular main courses at double the price and were not at all happy with the quality / taste of their food, so we ordered the “cheapest” food available on the menu, with the same result but at half the price). In short: we really liked the hotel and would definitely return, but we would not dine at this hotel again.
