My wife and I stayed at this hotel on our last night of our vacation in Europe. We started and ended our trip in Zurich and needed a hotel for one night before flying home the next day. We checked in at 11:15pm at night and felt safe walking to this hotel from the Oerlikon train station. The lobby was clean and well lit and the front desk staff was pleasant even though it was late.
The hotel's location north of the city center in the Oerlikon neighborhood makes it not ideal for sightseeing downtown. A tram costs about $2.50 CHF to downtown or you can take the train for about $6.00 CHF, both from Oerlikon station about 3 blocks from the hotel.
The room was small and overlooked the main street. The ventalation system (sort of a poor-man's airconditioning) didn't work well and we ended up leaving the window open all night. The shower and toilet are in a seperate room but the sink is actually in the hotel room. The beds were comfortable and the sheets clean and crisp. The hotel has obviously had a revamp in the recent past.
The front desk upon check-out was very helpful and called us a taxi.
They did offer a breakfast (not included in the price of the room) for $17 CHF. We didn't take the breakfast.
We purchased this hotel on expedia.com about a week before hand.
One last thing, like all hotels in Zurich, they charge a city tax of $10 CHF at checkout which is not indicated on your original bill.
