Stayed here for several nights on a business trip, it’s the usual hotel for visitors to the company site and everyone seemed happy with it. Located in the northern Zurich suburb of Kloten close to the airport.
The ground floor has a bar, bar area, sitting area with a couple of PCs (need to pay) and restaurant that doubles as breakfast. There is a small gym (about 5 pieces) on the top floor. Rooms are standard fayre, clean and modern, well equipped with flat screen TV, air con (I think – control on the wall but never tried it), wired internet connection, complementary bottle of water each day, the bathroom is quite nice with lots of glass and large mirrors. There is a complementary shuttle from/to the airport.
The train station is at the back of the hotel but just about every room faces the front so not a problem. Kloten looks to be a nice Swiss town, a couple of shops and restaurants close by with a wider choice in the centre about 10 minutes walk away. Trains run regularly to Zurich taking about 15 minutes, you can buy day tickets at the hotel for about 10 euros, remember to stamp the date on them using the machine on the platform.
Only had a fleeting look at Zurich but looks to be an interesting old city with a European cosmopolitan flair – lots of people eating/drinking outdoors, trams rattling around, boats running up and down the river, trendy shops, lots of restaurants.
To summarise, a nice hotel in a nice town close to the wonderful city of Zurich. Just one final note, Switzerland is a little expensive, prices are often quoted in Swiss francs, euros and sometimes GBP but I think the rate used is a little optimistic.
