“Comfortable and economical”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2006

We stayed at the Sternen Oerlikon in early June 2006. Oerlikon is a suburb/satellite of Zurich, but this hotel is situated a five minute walk from the station, which has trains into Zurich every two minutes. The hotel is right next to a tram stop and there are buses that run into Zurich. The best part about this hotel was the price - $110 a night with a pretty decent breakfast included. The staff were very helpful and polite and we were able to leave our large suitcase with them while we travelled to Bern and Geneva, before returning for two nights to the Sternen. There are numerous restaurants around including a north Indian and a south Indian resturant, a Burger King near the station which offered a great veggie sandwich (much better than what they serve in the US), and a cafe next door to the BK.
The rooms were clean, though the lift following European tradition is meant for pencil thin models alone! Overall, a great experience. Its much cheaper than the $200 plus you might pay in Zurich city, and the ride into Zurich is 5 minutes or less. Trains run late into the night so you have the advantage of being close to the city but not affected by its noise.

  • Liked — The cost - it was priced within our range
  • Disliked — The layout of the rooms was not very comfortable

A very clean room with all the amenities. Pricing is excellent for Zurich. The staff is very friendly and fluent in English (if that is an issue).

Close to the Oerlikon train station and 1 block from the tram and bus stops. Close to stores and restaurants.

We would definitely return (and we did- 3 nights one week, 1 night before our return flight).

Other than the reception this hotel has not changed a bit in the ten years that I have used it. Don't let this put you off though as it is extremely well maintained and cleaned. There are all manner of different room layouts, sizes and facilities, so if you don't like the room you get it is worth asking to change. Convenient for Oerlikon railway station and trams into Zuerich, which takes less than ten minutes. The restaurant used to belong to the hotel but is now a separate business serving classic Swiss food in a typical Swiss atmosphere.
For budget travelers there are good options for eating during the day - the best being the self service restaurant in Migros supermarket. Once a week there is a market in the town square.

The Sternen Oerlikon is a very clean budget hotel located in a nice suburb of Zurich. Our room was small with a comfortable double bed (2 singles put together) and a couple of sitting chairs and round table. The bathroom was adequate but the sink was inside the bedroom. Our room faced the main street occupied by a constant flow of trams, and buses but it was very quiet at night. The hotel is about five easy walking blocks from the main train station in Oerlikon (if you have luggage, you will have to negotiate the steps in the train station). We loved the stay here because it was a good value - about three miles from the center of Zurich, quiet, friendly and easily accessible.
