“Convenient and Reasonable”
Reviewed July 25, 2014

They pick you up and deliver you to the airport which has the train station on the lower floors. The room is great and by Switzerland standards very nice, clean and very reasonable priced. The staff was awesome. They can provide you with a converter for electrical requirements. They speak English and can help you get anywhere in the city. They have a restaurant and they are reasonable priced as you will discover if you are just starting your travels in Switzerland. The Tram is only a couple of blocks from the Hotel if you want to go to old town and the river.

Room Tip: Do not face the parking lot. It is a busy place. There is not air conditioning as we know it in the...

Green Features: The ergonomic design is very efficient to accommodate overnight stays. No carpet. No furniture separate from the wall except for desk chair. No air conditioning but a cool air system control in each room.

This is a typical IBIS hotel with its ups and downs.

Upsides: friendly staff, nice small rooms with all you need at hand, no 'extras'.

Downsides: lack of soundproofing of the rooms (can get really noisy with un-respectful clients slamming doors, speaking in corridors and loud TVs...

The hotel is certainly convenient for the airport and the fairground, but the location is certainly not 'sexy' otherwise.

There is a shuttle service, to/from airport. Frequency is only every half hour and there are several 2 hour periods in the day where the shuttle does not operate. It is a good idea to double check.

BUT, to double check you'll need to call the hotel... Here is a challenge: I tried twice... First I chose a service in French: ended up talking to a gentleman in a call center somewhere in North Africa (my guess, based on the strong accent of the guy): helpful but had no idea what the hotel was about... Tried in English: all to way to a call center in India! Even worse: the lady really had no idea! This is where globalization hits the wall...

Staff are really friendly. It is located near Zurich Oerlikerhus Tram Station. From Airport we can reach via Tram no 10. From Tram station it is only 700 mts ( On the way you can see Henken and SRF ).
They offer a free airport drop shuttle at 30 min interval. Breakfast is an average British breakfast with limited option. Rooms are a bit smaller without Fridge, Locker and Bathroom accessories.
There is a resturent called KAFI near to the tram station if you want to try.
If you want to go to the Zurich central you can board Tram 10/11 to reach over there.
Limited power plug make it a bit difficult.If you are carrying a big suitcase its really difficult to open because of Space constraint. However it fit to your budget as Zurich is quite an costly affair if you are traveling with an INR converted to CHF.

Room Tip: Book an Daily pass of tram/rail/bus to make yourself mobile.It will be cheaper.

Dear Sunayan_Pal
Thank you very much for your detailed review and for confirming our great value for money.
I would just like to add the possibility to reach us by taking the bus number 781 from the Oerlikon station. If you get off at "Riedbach" you are at the ibis in 2 minutes walk, which is more comfortable than the tram option.
We would be happy to welcome you again soon and wish you all the best.
Greetings from Switzerland!

Comfortable. Friendly staff. A little further from airport than it seems on the map but very nice shuttle service FREE. Decent restaurant with good food at a reasonable price. NO fridge in rooms though one website said to expect.

Room was quite dark, lighting is inadequate. Only one electrical outlet in room itself, though another (can't guess why) right by the light switch in the entrance alcove. Electric adapter bought in US did not work at all, hotel provided one at no charge and we bought another set of adapters at the front desk at a reasonable price.

No snacks except for vending machine outside front lobby.

Overall a good value especially for airport/railway station (airport station) proximityk and shutt.e

Although as an "airport hotel" it offers the shuttle bus to the airport ever half hour, there are "black spots" when the shuttle does NOT run - so you need to take care.

The Ibis Messe - Airport offers standard Ibis fare, the rooms are Ibis standard, as was the breakfast offering.

The rooms were also clean and all the necessary items were working (tv, shower, lights, aircon)
