“Nice Marriott Courtyard property with good transport links”
Reviewed June 23, 2014

This Courtyard is very typical of the chain, with an excellent, helpful, friendly multinational staff. Rooms are normal for the Marriott brand, clean, modern well-lit but rather uninteresting. The hotel is close to the Oerlikon train station, only 2 very quick stops to the HBZurich station. I prefer the #11 tram, a scenic half hour ride into the city and then with stops at Bellevue and the Opera House. In-house MAX restaurant good for a meal and a great breakfast buffet. Directly across the street is a large COOP grocery store, for those on a budget as restaurants in Switzerland are really pricey compared to the US and most of Western Europe. The North Zurich area is very up-and-coming and is closest to the airport for flight connections.

Room Tip: Inside "courtyard" rooms quieter than street side rooms.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel the night before our flight back to the States. It is about a 15 minute drive to the airport, which was great. The hotel and the rooms are modern and clean. The front desk staff was friendly and efficient. Our room was on the 5th floor facing the main street, but we really were not bothered by street noise. There is a Coop grocery store directly across the street, an Aldi grocery store, a Starbucks and a Chinese restaurant within the same block of the hotel. The parking fee is outrageously expensive, 36 Swiss Francs a day. The a/c did not keep the room cool at all and if we had not had a fan, we would have had a miserable night's sleep. Our room was a handicap room, which was fine except it made showering for my husband very difficult. The bathtub had a hand shower, but no shower curtain. There is a curtain for a chair shower next to the toilet, but the water runs all over the bathroom floor. I understand and appreciate the need for this room, but how hard could it be to just provide a shower curtain for the tub also. There are also shutters on the window, which we had no control of whether they were opened or completely shut. I guess they are automated. The night we checked in the blind-like shutters were opened enough to see out. The next morning, completely shut, no light at all, couldn't see a thing outside....didn't like it. I'm sure it helps the noise level and there may be some way to control it that we were not aware of. It is a basic Courtyard with some nice features but with the a/c not cooling properly and the awkward to use bathroom, we would probably try another hotel next time.

I have stayed here a few times, but decided not to going forward.
The hotel is your average hotel, but still very expensive for a Courtyard type.
Food/restaurant is very expensive and the food is not that special. Waiters are usually below standard in their attentiveness.
Reception staff is very automatic and does not seem to care about you as customer.
Location close to a main train station is good.
large streets just outside the rooms makes it noisy.

Great hotel - 4 minutes from the airport by train and another few minutes walk to the hotel. The train stops at Oerkilon station. Follow signs for the 75 bus, when you get to the bus stop keep walking forward and the hotel is in front of you. Located next to coffee shops and cafes (including Starbucks).

Free wifi in the lobby.

Rooms are nice, adequately sized (we had a 2 queen beds) and very comfy. Bathroom is ok (average size) and clean.

We didn't have breakfast but went nearby or in town instead.

The centre of Zurich is 7 mins by train from Oerlikon station. Very convenient. There are also bus and trams nearby but we didn't use them.

Would stay here again, stay were helpful too.

We stayed here for a day on way to lucerne and found this hotel to be very conveniently located near the Oerlikon Station and right across from the COOP supermarket. Breakfast was good and so was the staff. Will recommend this hotel to friends.

The staff at this Courtyard remembers your name, your room preferences and whether you like points or your "welcome gift". Given it's business location, that's pretty amazing. There is also a Starbucks right next door and only 3 minutes to the major train artery in Zurich - loving it. Ask for a room to the courtyard....despite the recent room renovations with soundproof windows, one can still hear the road on the (odd room numbers) street-facing rooms

Room Tip: Backside rooms (even numbers) are quieter

Very good hotel, 5 mins walk from Oerlikon train station and you are in the city centre in 10 mins. Rooms are v. comfortable and quiet. Staff extremely kind and managers attentive beyond expectations. Nothing is too much trouble for them. Great breakfast. A Coop supermarket across the road, a few little restaurants in the vicinity and a Starbucks next door. Great place for business meetings.
