Reviewed September 23, 2013

Location -- Oerlikon one stop from Zurich Airport 14 mins.to HB, 24 mins to Burkliplatz for boat
across the train station, close to tram #11 stop. very easy reach to Old Town and all the other sights. Coop supermarket is next to hotel, and a shopping mall. on Sat. I was glad and surprised to find a pretty good size Farmer's Market next to the hotel. Fresh fruits.

Room: I was on 13th floor, facing an office bldg. given my rate, I had no complaint, esp. I arrived 7:30am and I could check-in to my room!! Thanks. Washroom is small, but good amenities.
Coffee and tea making facilities.

Service: the concierge provides a detailed Tram 11 timetable and the hotel printed a card w train time and track to and from HB. Very handy. Very helpful Concierge.,

Restaurant: I had dinner there, not very busy, good service by Anna.

I will definitely return.

The hotel's location is excellent. being beside Zurich Oerlikon station, near the airport and near the city. Once i stepped into this hotel, i was greeted by a number of staffs around. Check in was fast and great, was put into room 2012 and the view is great, i will suggest requesting rooms on the higher floors for better view. The bad thing is that the hotel does not provide free wifi. I was unable to proceed with my internet check in for the flight back to Singapore because of that. Overall its quite a pleasant stay.

Comfortable Hotel from a large Brand at a reasonable price and far cheaper than central Zurich, yet only a 7 minute train ride from the central station and trains running every few minutes. Efficient and comfortable with all modern amenities and an excellent breakfast. The hotel is across the road from Oerlikon Station in an are bustling with shops and markets.

The hotel is just perfect. The rooms are very comfortable and had the luck of staying in the 28th floor which gave us a perfect view. The staff was always helpful the breakfast was probably tha best breakfast I have ever had in an hotel. It is not on the city center, but there is a direct tram from the front of the hotel to the city center and it takes no more than 10 minutes.

The hotel is located between the airport and city which is very convenient - a bit cheaper than the city centre and only a few minutes away. The staff were really friendly and helpful, and we enjoyed our stay in a comfortable and well equipped room... no complaints!

This is really only somewhere to consider for business - but if you are working in Oerlikon it's a good location - less than 10 minutes form the station and a further short trip into the city - all by train - the hotel is right next to the station. Service is extremely good and receptionists very friendly - some of the best I've seen. Rooms are just about ok for a 4 star - very clean but slightly dated. There is also a good bar on the ground floor. The only other option in this area is the Courtyard Marriott - and this is the better hotel (I've stayed at both).

Outstanding service by efficient and well trained team both at front desk and food service areas. Breakfast better than any comparable hotel I have stayed in. Only disappointment was lack of shuttle from airport which was offered by some other hotels
