Hotel is far from heart of Zurich, yes it can be reached by tram 4 easily but in a very remote place. The room is awkward with the bathroom split into three areas !!!!! first experience in my life. staff are normal with no special attention to the guests or more friendly. The onl good thing we tried was the breakfast which was of good quality but again the staff are more or less like robots and you never get a smile or a greeting easily. We were a fmily with 2 kids in 2 rooms, it is not recommended. Might be ok for couples really on tight budget or friends.

The hotel was OK on an average and the people manning the reception at night were of Indian/Bangladesh descent. One funny experience I had was with the vending machine. I put it some coins but because the water bottles were not correctly labeled I didn't get anything out so I called out for help and the guy in charge of the reception at night, an Indian/bangladeshi man came to help and he was so hilariously funny-his speech, his gestures and his Swiss in general I had hard time explaining to him with a straight face. But in the end, he opened the machine gave me a bottle of water and my change. I loitered in the lobby while my husband copied some files from the SD card to the USB with the free PCs they have at the lobby and watched yet another funny scenario unfold. The same chap gave away a room to a late night check-in group of guests from Russia to a room already occupied by another guests. When they came down to tell him he looked shocked and was scratching his head. hahaha I am guessing this kind of things happen of regular basis here

The breakfast selection was good and you could see the train/tram station from where you have your breakfast. As usual no air-cond but it was cool in the room and we left the window ajar so we could get some cool air at night. Overall the stay was pleasant and service was good. The swiss has a different type of power outlet so the receptionist was kind enough to loan us an adapter for 10 euros (refundable)

They don't have laundry service here but if you walk behind the hotel to the red Ibis you could do your laundry but they charge for each item so it's better you just get new ones in town. There is also a restaurant nearby-an overpriced Malaysian/Thai restaurant in an abandoned warehouse converted to a "mini-mall" within walking distance but I would suggest you to just take the train/tram no.4 (purple) heading towards werdholzli and get down at Central station/Rathaus(less walking) for the food/nightlife experience at Old Town

How do you get to the hotel from the Zurich HB station?

You walk out of the main station towards the trams and wait at the train/tram no.4 (purple) heading towards Bahnhof Altstetten or ask someone where the Bahnhofquai/HB station is. You get down at Schiffbau station and cross the road to Ibis hotel

Our room had the basic:

separated handless toilet and shower
basin
2 towels
soap
TV
bed

It's a little out of the city centre, although the Technopark tram stop is just outside and Zurich Hardbrucke station is around 7-8 minutes walk away. The weather was lovely when I was there, so most of the time I walked into the city, and was at the main railway station in 10-15 minutes. It is a budget hotel, so don't be surprised to find a bunk bed over the main double bed, no locks on the shower cubicle or in the toilets. I was caught off guard by the Swiss plugs which aren't the same as the usual continental round plugs. What I couldn't understand was the height of the toilet. At 5ft 10" my toes could just touch the floor when seated, and I think this wins an award for the highest toilet I've ever come across. Otherwise the staff were friendly and the rooms clean. Just remember, it's called the Ibis BUDGET Hotel, so don't expect it to be to the usual 3* Ibis quality. If you're look for somewhere to lay your head that's clean, relatively close to the city centre, close to transport, and not breaking the bank (Zurich can be pricey), it's strongly recommended.

Room Tip: The quietest rooms overlook the side street called Technoparkstrasse. The main road is Pfingstweidst...

Its a very simple dorm like room but very clean & new ... For 128€ it was too simple .. There is 2 kind of Ibis in tecno park we were in blue one( economy) the break fast was fine but receptionist was lost & angry when we were checking in . The tram to city centre is just out side the hotel we asked the receptionist for franks for tram offering euros , he seid we dont have any here angrily but when we got it from the corner bar some hotel guests came out of hotel with franks we ask them where did you get it they said from reception!! . Over all you get good location simple clean rooms unfriendly receptionist for 128€.

the toilet is a little bit too high like your feet can't touch the ground while you are sitting on it. A little bit far from the city but there is a tram station near by. The staffs are nice to offer you like adaptors.
