My wife and I stayed at this hotel for 1 night during a tour of Europe, and found it to be an excellent choice.

This hotel is centrally situated and easy to find, as it is right opposite the Oerlikon Station, which is only a few minutes away form the airport. There is also a tram terminal right at the hotel.

Upon our arrival we were welcomed in a very friendly way by Nico at reception. Although we were early for check-in, he informed us that it did not present a problem, and that they had a room ready for us. Check in was fast and efficient and Moorthy assisted us in a helpful and friendly way with our luggage to our room.

The room was found to be spacious, neat and clean and had a good view. Although it was opposite the railway station, we were not aware of any railway noise. It also had a nice modern bathroom that included all amenities and a bath. It also had a fully equipped coffee/tea station.

Nico at reception was very helpful in providing information and a map on reaching and walking Zürich's historic Old Town (Altstadt) sight seeing route. Here you can leisurely stroll down the old cobblestone streets while viewing interesting buildings and visit a variety of stores and restaurants. This route stretches on both sides of the scenic Limmat River that flows into Lake Zurich.
If you find the Swiss food prices very high (like us) there is a McDonalds very close by.

This Swissotel was experienced as a high standard hotel, that met all our expectations.

We would always stay at this hotel again, should we visit Zurich in the future.

We recently stayed there for a couple of nights.

The room was quite tidy. For the lovers of it! (me being one of them), the breakfast was *fantastic*. The staff was very very friendly & helpful. The restaurant of the hotel simply ~rocks~ was well.

Also to mention, the location. The train station is simply in front of the hotel, and in no more than 6-7 minutes, you are in the center of Zurich (i.e. Hbf)

I would definitely recommend this place, and very would like to stay there again.

My husband and I had a wonderful weekend get-away at Swissotel. Although not in center of Zurich it was a convenient place with easy access to everywhere. It 5 min on the train to the central station and less than 10 min on train to the airport. They serve a fantastic breakfast and has a spa/fitness with a view. Our room was with a great view and even a pillow menu!Be aware if your room rate includes wifi and breakfast. Simply ask for a room with a view when you check in, there is plenty to choose from. Don't forget swimsuit!

We stayed with our 2 young children (2and4). We had interconnecting rooms and the children's rooms was had been made up specifically for children with books, toys and teddies which our children loved. All the staff were so friendly and welcoming. The pool is warm, and such amazing views! Although we overlooked the railway, we had no railway noise once windows were shut. The pillows were soft and duvet too hot, but this was all very efficiently rectified wi a quick phone call. Thoroughly recommend.

Confortable and in front of a train station. The room is vice and big, the food is perfect! The team members very friendly and nice. I stayed for a business trip, but I strongly recomend this hotel even for vacations and hollidays. It´s close to the station and downtown and 15 minutes far away from the airport (using the Tram).
