We stayed here as part of our honeymoon trip. It was lovely experience even though it's much of a business hotel right in the middle of city. But it was amazing experience; hospitality at it best and it's one of the best location in Zurich undoubtedly. Very close to train station they also help us arranging other city excursion and train ticket. Tidy room with all amenities. Breakfast spread was good and hearty.Its good value for money.

I'll start by the positive: we arrived early, were planning on just leaving our luggage. The receptionist upgraded us to a bigger room available straight away, which was nice of her. After that, it turned out the room was clean-ish, quite dusty, the bathroom door handle was about to fall... Overall, the hotel wasn0t that clean. There was a piece of paper in the life which remained there all day... The breakfast was really really poor, everything was made out of frozen food. I had been several times to the Swissotel in Basel where the breakfast is amazing but it was nothing compared to it. The pool, we never got to see it! We tried once and we were told it was full. We tried again later that day... same. Next day... same! I didn't understand why, if they had some many guests, they could not just oragnise some time slots so that everyone could enjoy it at some point. Disappointing experience, I'm never going back.

Nice hotel with a good location, right next to a train station that can be reached quickly. The staff at the reception are very friendly and competent. Our highlight was the pool and jacuzzi on the 32nd floor with a great view. The rooms are clean, but rather small and no longer up-to-date. For this price I don't think that's appropriate.

We have been very disappointed because the hotel lacks of transparency: when we have booked there was no mention that the parking is not free and in addition there is no mention that the access to the swimming pool is limited..max 25 persons at the same time..ok this is due to covid however the hotel could have implemented some rules such as booking the pool, allowing a max time per person etc..in other words a simple schedule so that everyone could enjoy the pool.. A bit more transparency would be appreciated..

The Swissotel Zurich is in a great location whilst not in the city center it has a tram at the front door and a train station across the street so really great access to public transport. The breakfasts were good as were the meals in the restaurants. The staff were very helpful.
