Highest building in Oerlikon. Fantastic views from 32nd floor spa. Good sauna. heated to 65 degrees and really clean. Small swimming pool and small gym. Good beds in the room as well as a good selection of TV channels. I do not really like Swiss hotels at all as the breakfast and internet are not included in the price. At least the internet worked fine and one could even stream TV. Excelent connections to the airport and downtown by train. Fantastically friendly and efficient service.

This is really an excellent hotel. Nice large room with good bathroom and nice amenities. Very good breakfast and restaurant. Excellent location. The check in process was very smooth and the concierge was very helpful and really took the time to help out on recommendations, transportation option, etc.... All in all a very nice stay.

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.
