“Just the bare necessities”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

It is situated 5 minutes drive from zurich airport, but the shuttle bus charged quite a stiff amount. I thought for that amount, i could have stayed in the city itself.
The hotel stands out, all alone, right opposite teh Messe, Fair area. I guess, if i had been here to attend the fairs at the Messe, maybe i could have appreciated the location better. Anyway, i chose from the website thinking it will be near the airport, so i could savethe trouble and time to reach the airport, but it didnot meet this criteria in the end.
the room was ok and had all the bare necessities, so was the toilet, nothing much to complaint, but also nothing much to crave about.
Breakfast was good and sumptuous, going by European standards and worth mentioning.
The staffs were curt and to the point, but Gordian at the front desk must be mentioned, for his helpful nature and very resourceful too.
The location is neither here nor there. you need to take a bus or taxi to reach the Airport or Railway station. The hotel doesnot provide transport shuttles.
Did not have much time or chance to try any of the other facilities, because the stress of planning your arrival and departure and daily commuting to your meetings was enough to keep you occupied.

Room Tip: nothing much to add.

Dear guest,

Thank you very much for your detailed comments on your recent stay. Especially the comments on Gordians efforts are highly appreciated. We are sorry to hear that you were dissapointed by the location. It is true that we are not an airport hotel but both, the city and the airport are easily accessible by public transport within 15-20 minutes.

We would be happy to welcoming you again on your next trip to Switzerland.
Thank you again for staying with us.

Kindest regards,

Michael Deutsch

was a bit nervous about staying here as I usually like Marriott's. The hotel/rooms were good though and the breakfast fab (albeit expensive at nearly £20). The hotel is in the middle of a commercial area but only about 15 mins by cab to the centre of Zurich which was lovely

Stayed here for business several times. Rooms are a good size, clean and well equipped. Free WiFi is available. Good showers.
There is a restaurant and bar downstairs, and a seating area outside.
Breakfast is expensive, but there are several places in Oerlikon where you can go for breakfast for less expense.
10 Minutes walk to the railway station in Oerlikon. Bus stop just outside.
Suggest some research into local restaurants as there are not many in the area. Mamma Mia pizza in Oerlikon is good.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are quieter.

Nice hotel with quite big rooms, near the city center, nice bar on the lobby, bus stop is just outside the hotel, nice qualified staff, free wifi, great breakfast!
it was offered me a free upgrade for the room.

There is no minibar at rooms which very disappointed for 4 star hotel, parking is very expensive about 24 francs.
Breakfast very rich but quite expensive!

Rooms are clean, friendly & helpful staff but not a great location for tourists. No room service, no good restaurants nearby. Location is far from central places. Good if you have any business in surrounding area otherwise look for any other hotel in more central location.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for having taken the time to write down your comments on your recent stay.

It is true that we are not located dirctly in the citycenter, hoever we have a tram stop a few meters away and a direct tram brings you to the main train station in only 20 minutes. Just for information: we do offer roomservice in our hotel.

We do appreciate your positive comments on the hotel and the staff.

A very good quality, modern room to which you are welcomed by friendly staff. Breakfast was also good.
The hotel bar seems popular on Friday evenings.
Hotel is located at about 5-10 minutes walk from Messe train station. The surrounding area is not the most attractive for tourists. The same goes for places to eat around the hotel.
