We have to be honest, we only spent one night at this hotel, actually less than 10 hrs.

Between two flights, we had the option to stay around the airport. But we wanted to eat somewhere nice and sleep in a comfortable bed. We even kind of ''push it'' by telling them we were on our honeymoon, which was true... but you know we're only there 10 hours! Wow... is all we can say. Friendly, easy, comfy, a few stations away from the airport, close by restaurants and more. The checking in was so fast and easy, we had our room key, a wake up call set up, a reservation for a local ''raclette'' restaurant, a route to our restaurant on a map and our luggage in our room in less than 10 minutes!!!

On top of it, the staff surprised us with chocolate in every corner of the room! You know the feeling when you get more than you feel you deserved... well we had more than we paid for!

The room was nice, not the most modern one but with a lot of taste. Very clean and spacious. A bargain for the price... but for the service too!

We were anxious to get to our next location, but we told ourselves that we would be back at this Swissotel, for a short lay over, for work or vacation. The checking out was as fast and easy as the checking in was.

Best regards

Stayed for one night and the found this hotel to be average with a few positive attributes and some clear negatives. Room and bathroom were tiny and somewhat cramped for 2 people; dated fixtures and electronics - rooms could definitely use some updating. The most annoying aspect of the room was that at the head of bed there was a shelf built into the headboard that is several inches above the mattress - this is both uncomfortable and even dangerous unless fully covered by pillows.

The location is convenient to the airport as hotel is one stop away and steps from the train station; also two stops from Zurich central station. However, not an area for tourists so if you plan to explore/enjoy Zurich would recommend staying in the city center or plan to take train rides (or very expensive cabs). Also, the staff was quite helpful with questions/requests.

Wifi works well throughout the hotel. Gym is very limited - only a few cardio machines. Pool on 32nd floor nice but sauna is nude and coed?? (Very odd for a major, international, business hotel).

Overall, would only recommend for a 1 day trip if coming in on business.

Really enjoyed my recent stay at Swissotel. The hotel is across the road from Oerlikon train station with easy access to anywhere you wish to go in (and out of) Switzerland, through a very efficient and widely connected Swiss train system. Check-in was quick and the room wonderful. The rooms are cozy and kept very clean with ample amenities such as tea and coffee . Our marble bathroom had many extra touches. The heated indoor pool along with a small yet effective fitness room on 32nd floor were a welcome change after long flight. The staff is very polite and carries a wonderful touch of Swiss efficiency. Thank you Angela and everyone at front desk. Thanks also to very polite and efficient bell-staff. This was my third visit, if given a chance I will certainly stay at this hotel again during my next visit.

Providing you know you are going to be staying in Oerlikon and not downtown Zurich, I think you would be pleasantly surprised at what you get for a very reasonable price. Plus access to downtown very easy indeed and Oerlikon itself has its own character and decent places to eat and drink. Ultra efficient and friendly check in, car park under hotel with direct access (allbeit at rather a hefty fee), clean and comfortable room which is small but sufficient with some great views if high up.
The bar on the ground floor is buzzy, service efficient and pleasant and does not feel like the typical hotel lounge bar. There is also a Starbucks which offers a pleasant alternative - and again counter staff super. Did not take breakfast - seemed expensive to me, but a Starbucks coffee and breakfast muffin suited perfectly. In my opinion Swissotel as a brand stands up well in each I have stayed in (all bar this one) outside Switzerland.

I always enjoy my stays at the Swissotel Zurich. It has a sleek, modern edge and great city views from the higher floors. There is an excellent indoor pool and jucuzzi on the top floor too. It is adjacent to the Oerlikon train station making it very convenient to the airport (4 mins) and to the Zurich main station (about 15 mins).
