“Great hotel for stopover in Zurich”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2009

Loved this hotel! Nothing bad to report at all. Our room was lovely and clean, the bathroom was spotless with a great shower and some toiletries provided. Beds were comfortable...

THe hotel provides a free shuttle service to and from the airport which was great as it saved us the usual amount to get from the airport. The hotel is in a lovely location, close to loads of great restaurants, a Migros supermarket and all amenities (bank, ATMs, cafes etc) and a beautiful patisserie/chocolate shop... amazing hot chocolates and patisserie:)

THe best thing about this hotel was probably the incredible pizzas and calzones that we had for dinner. To die for... not overly expensive for great quality food, so we were very happy. The hotel has two restaurants, but this was the one that purely serves pizza... so good, definitely recommended.

A short report, but only because it was all good! If you are stopping over in Zurich for 1 or 2 nights and don't want to go right into the city centre but still want to be around good food, pleasant surroundings and have the convenience of supermarkets, banks etc, this is perfect. Comfortable, clean, not too expensive considering the cost of Zurich, great hotel food if you dont feel like venturing off, and good location.

I think this hotel is owned by a chain called Airport Hotels, because there is also the Hotel Allegra whihc my partner stayed at a few years ago and said was excellent too.

I would absolutely recommend staying here and next time we stop over in Zurich we will definitely stay there.

Stayed November 2008

Just as many others have said, this is a good hotel for a one or two night stay. Maybe I didn't read it or maybe I just chose to ignore; the breakfast is not included in the price of the room. In fact, it is rather high priced in my opinion; 15 CHF per person for cereals and breads. This hotel must be in partnership with a few others; the shuttle bus goes to several different hotels in the area. You need to reserve the shuttle for airport departure. Our rooms were on the 3rd floor and were pretty dark. We did have a skylight which made things a bit brighter. Like I said before, this hotel is OK for a one or two night stay, I certainly wouldn't stay more than that. There are too many other outstanding places in Zurich.

We had a 3 night stay at Fly Away Hotel Zurich and enjoyed our time there. We paid about $145/night for a double standard room. The service was efficient and friendly. The free airport shuttle pickup and dropoff is very convenient, the airport is about 15min away from the hotel. There is a Spar supermarket about a 10min walk away and we bought some groceries from there which came in handy.

The room was very clean and had a balcony which we used a couple times. Since it is an airport hotel, you will get some noise from the planes overhead when the balcony doors are open. The room does not have any bar soap or shampoo so you will have to bring your own. It does have liquid soap by the sink and body wash in the shower.

We ordered pizzas from the pizzeria downstairs. Prices are about 18CHF for a pizza per person or 30CHF for a family pizza(2-3 people).

The Kloten train station is a five minute walk away. We bought 24hour return train passes to Zurich HB station (15 min ride) from the front desk for 12CHF each. We also took a day trip to Lucerne which was about an hour train ride away from Zurich.

We stayed 1 night at the Fly Away hotel after 2 wks in Europe as we had a fairly early flight out of Zurich the following morning. The hotel is located just a 5 minute walk from the Kloten train station which made it very easy to get to. We were also able to ride the train for ~15 minutes to go to downtown Zurich for dinner and then walk back to hotel at night. Our room was good size and clean. The hotel has a complimentary shuttle that will take you to the airport in about 10 minutes or so. Overall, this hotel was a good value for the price we paid and met our needs. I would recommend this hotel for similar situations.

I have stayed at several of the Zurich Airport hotels over many years, many trips, and the Fly Away is the one I now use every year. While there are more luxurious places, the room rates here are better. The rooms are small, but provide all the amenities one wishes. The restaurant is quite good. The free airport shuttle runs frequently.
