I´ve stayed twice at this hotel; the first time was good (it was 2 years ago) and that was the reason why I decided to book again the same hotel for this occasion, but the second time, which exactly was last week (it was a long staying, 9 nights!!!) has been extremely bad; the room was completely FULL OF COCKROACHES,...

This is a clean, convenient and calm apartment hotel in the center of Oerlikon. It has no reception and no services, but the rooms are clean and comfortable, there is no gimmick but all you need is available.Beds are comfortable, there is a fully equipped kitchen and bathroom with shower. By foot to theatre 11 or sports or music events...

I stayed in this hotel as part of a business function as it was within walking distance of the venue. It does not have a reception area and I did not have the 4 digit number of my reservation handy. After calling I found out I made a mistake in the reservation, instead of November I had reserved December. The...

We firstly arrived without knowing you needed a booking reference number to be able to get your key from a machine outside of the building. Because we have been travelling for 4 months we rely on wifi and do not have simcards. So we tried connecting to the wifi but you need to be able to receive an SMS code...

We received a 5 digit pin via email to retrieve our transponder to enter into the apartment a few days after confirming our booking. It was close to a 7-minute walk from the Oerlikon train station, a stop away from Zurich HB main station. There wasn't a clear sign to the entrance of the inn, we had to ask the...

It's not even a hotel. It's really an apartment. I received booking cofirmation from Expedia but upon arrival, was told by the (detached) restaurant of the same name that I needed a code to enter on the machine on the outside of the building. I had not received an email containing such a code so was forced to make a...

It's taking 'self-service' to the extreme. This is my second night here and already I have helped two stranded couples from Korea and Australia who could not get their keys. You MUST be in possession of the 5-digit key collection code to punch into a box next to the door (not the box at the door), to have your key...

Pros: affordable price for Zurich, good location with easy connection to the main train station and airport, rooms have private bathroom. Cons: no reception, so nobody to help if you need anything, key boxes are not very easy to use, almost no housekeeping (they occasionally change towels, nothing else. We stayed for 4 nights and there was visible dirt on...

If you are new to Zurich, and need assistance/support/information on your stay, you will want to choose another hotel. We had booked the hotel for it's wonderful price in Zurich, but failed to read all the extensive reviews until the night before. I even called the day before to get the key code, but was not told that since we...

The good part of this hotel is the location. Very near to Oerlikon station. Tram 11 is the mode of transport around. Zurich Airport, HB both are connected via frequent trains from Oerlikon. Rooms are also OK. Now coming to the not so good part. I don't understand how a 3 star facility won't have a reception. Moreover, there is...
