I stay here quite regularly as its close to
My head office. It's not a place for a week long family holiday, but for business trips it's ideal, has a pizzeria and a good Italian restaurant. Rooms are not huge, but are big enough.my only gripe is that there is a nice desk, free wifi BUT the one plug socket is nowhere near the desk. Didnt think that one thru chaps!

Dear Steve,
Thank you for rating us again on TA and naturally for visiting us regularly! You are absolutely right, the only thing which is forgotten while constructing a building are the pretty useful plug sockets! :/ But do me please a favor Steve and ask at the reception for a extension cable next time, they can help you for sure.
We are looking forward to welcomeing you soon again at Fly away!
See you, kind regards,

I had my doubts when I booked but they were quickly forgotten upon arrival.

While the hotel is quite close to the Zurich Airport, it does not feel like an airport hotel. It is a boutique hotel tucked away a little bit in a small town, so it did not feel like a typical airport hotel. Almost zero airport noise.

The staff was excellent and attended to our every need. There are several places close to eat included a bar and two eating places on site. The food was good and the atmosphere was very comfortable also.

The rooms are a bit basic, but were clean and comfortable. I had a very early flight the next day, and the shuttle was right on time.

For those not requiring luxury, I would recommend this hotel highly and will certainly stay here again during my next visit.

This hotel is ideal for me when I travel for business because it is very well located, near the Zurich airport and my Company premises.

Rooms are quite basic but comfortable, service is excellent and the Italian restaurant is good.

A word of warning you can't check in after 12 PM so ensure you arrive before that time.

A good hotel if you want to be near the airport

We (2 adults) stayed at this location for 2 nights in late June.

Hotel Location:
The Hotel is located in the town of Kloten near the airport. It has a FREE shuttle service from Zurich airport that runs from early till late and usually every 30-35 minutes. The driver’s speak excellent English as well and the shuttles run on time.

If you take a cab from the airport, it will cost you about 16 -20 CHF one way.

The hotel is in a residential neighborhood and so there is not a lot of street noise. It is also only 2-3 blocks away from the Kloten train station that takes you into the city center in 15 minutes.

Additionally, there is the MIGROS supermarket about 3-5 mins walk from the Hotel. This allows you to get cheaper staples – bottled water, fruit, meat, breads, pastries. The supermarket is quite large and you can buy all kinds of items here.

The hotel also has a restaurant attached to it – as well as other eateries nearby.

Lobby/Front Desk: Very helpful people and they speak excellent English. They are quite knowledgeable about the neighborhood. You can also purchase train tickets here for trips on the local Swiss train network. The elevator in the lobby will allow you to access the floors if you have large bags.

Room: The rooms are of adequate size and have hardwood/tile floors. It is sparsely furnished but does have a desk by the window where you can sit and work. There is also another small table for additional workspace. There is excellent heat and AC in the room. We used the AC due to the heat wave when we were here.

The non-carpeted floor means that you can hear all the noises from adjacent rooms when they move their chairs or drop something or walk around. The walls are pretty thin here.

Bathroom is pretty basic. No tub, just a standing shower. There is no fridge in the room.

WIFI/Internet access: The WIFI in the room is free and has very good quality. Password and login is available from the front desk at check-in time.

Overall:
I thought the hotel was pricey given its location and the basic setup. Then again, Switzerland tends to be pricey. But if you’re in town just for a day or two – and don’t mind a 15 min train ride to downtown – then I would recommend this hotel.

Kloten is right next to the Zurich airport and on the train line up from downtown so the location is perfect for a night prior to your flight out. We had a party of 13 with 5 rooms (the four-bed room was perfect for our teenagers). The hotel provides a shuttle to and from the airport which was only a few minutes away. While the beds were up to the standard of say the Ameron Flora in Luzern, they were fine for us. For the price and location, it was worth the stay. There is a great cafe with pastries and coffee just down the street if you don't want to pay hotel restaurant prices. Caution, if you are there on a Sunday morning, be prepared for 10 minutes of church bell ringing at 7 AM.

Room Tip: Recommend a room on the front side away from the church.

We chose Fly Away for the location to the Zurich Hotel. We were greeted by a very friendly desk clerk who congratulated us on our 40 wedding anniversary. The clerk suggested she make reservations for us in the dining room to celebrate our last night of our trip. The room was comfortable and very clean. Airport shuttle was the reason we picked the Fly Away. We were pleased with all the hotel had to offer. Better than most airport hotels.

"So...where did you book our room?" I asked my husband after a looong day's train travel.
"One of those airport hotels."
I stifled a groan. This man had already packed my bags and zigzagged us through the maze of German train connections.
After a maddening trek through Switzerland's lovely but under-signed airport, we arrived at the hotel van pick-up line. A driver cut through my nerves by arriving fifteen minutes early. Yay, Swiss!

Within ten minutes, we arrived at Hotel Fly-Away.
NOT YOUR TYPICAL AIRPORT HOTEL.

A friendly greeting and rapid check-in helped assuage travel nerves. A nice offering of fresh fruit, the wafting of garlic and yeasty aromas, and a spotless, efficient room changed our mood for the night.

This is before we ate at Pizzeria Giardino, one of TWO Hotel Flyaway offerings.

Locals crammed this joint. Always a good sign!

We ate to our stomach's content, all for a reasonable price, then relaxed in a quiet, comfortable room.

Hotel Fly Away arranged free airport shuttle and an amazing complimentary breakfast!

The next time you need an easy stay near the airport, let Hotel FlyAway show you they are NOT your typical airport hotel.

When compared to the amenities, the price can't be beat.

Room Tip: Swimming pool and fitness center are off site, so we didn't choose those options
