“Great value for a place near town and the airport”
Reviewed 4 April 2013

Stayed here with my wife and had a great stay. Rooms are typical Ibis budget - small, very basic but very clean and comfortable. Town/train station is about a 15 minute walk, but there is a bus stop close to the hotel. Free WiFi worked well. There is a McDonalds next door and a Migros between the hotel and the train station. The only negative is this hotel seems to often host bus tours, which means that the elevator/lobby is a mess when they check in. And when they check in at late, there is an hour of door slamming while everyone gets into their room (slam), then leaves to go to McDonalds for a snack (slam) and then comes back (slam). Not bad, but can be a bit annoying when they check in late. Recommended because it is clean and modern and often under 100 francs and within walking distance of town/train station.

What do you expect from a Ibis Budget (Former Etap) hotel?

A clean bed? Check
Air condition? Check
TV set? Check
Shower, easy to use? Check
Toilet? Check

Overall, clean floor.

Decent price (for Switzerland)

Location is quite good as well - 3 stations by bus to Winterthur main station. Nearby is a big supermarket (Coop) as well as a McDonalds, so no need for expensive restaurant inhouse (there is a restaurant in the "regular" Ibis next door)

You get what you pay for - that's all - but that's fine.

I made a mistake. My departuer date is on19th Morning of Jan. so i had to book one room between 18/01/2012 and 19/01/2012. I asked to cancel the this internet booking and i paid offline price for one night staying between 18/01/2012 and 19/01/2012. Hotel employee will check it with his manager and they promise to inform me but not yet. Please kindly check ths situation. I paid 18th's stay with offline price so internet booking should be cancled because i didn't stay on 19th.

The Etap hotel served us for the night before our departure from Zurich/Kloten (Switzerland) airport back to the US. The rate was very affordable, the room clean, and the location convenient. I made the reservation via e-mail and when we arrived in the afternoon, staff was organized and clear. We paid in cash. There was an option for an additional fee for a breakfast which we tried. It was a moderate price for a buffet that offered a typical Swiss selection (not US range of variety). I preferred it over what we would have found at the airport. Overall, I would highly recommend this hotel for a very affordable short term stay.

Hotel is good located, about 10 minutes by walk from railway station or 3 stops by bus. Bur very expensive Internet access in this hotel and no info about these prices at site. also its a bit strange they did not give bonus points at A-Club.
