“Super Convenient, Very comfortable hotel”
Reviewed 20 December 2011

I've often traveled to Zurich and am now wondering why nobody ever told me about this place before. Just one train stop away from the Zurich Airport, and one or two stops (some with a train change) from right into downtown. The location is truly convenient in car-choked Zurich. My room was well appointed, if not large, but I appreciated that the bed was comfortable, there was enough hanging and storage space for my things and a very nicely appointed desk with wired and wireless Internet options. I saw that you could actually get ice from an ice machine (instead of having to wait around for room service as is the case in many European hotels). Didn't have any meals there, but was able to take the train to the Christmas market at the main train station easily. There is a small gym and a pool, although it doesn't open till 6am. One minor complaint is that the aerobics equipment is all placed away from the lights, and if, as I do, you like to read while on the equipment, you are basically out of luck unless you have the foresight to bring a flashlight (or have a backlit device, which I may get after this experience). The views from the room and the gym are beautiful. I can definitely recommend this as a pleasant, convenient place to base yourself if you are in Zurich, particularly on business.

Room Tip: The higher up, the better the views.

The hotel is situated about 6.5 km from the city centre, but this is no problem since Zurich has top class public transportation, with which you have access everywhere, reliably and fast.
The infinity pool is situated on the very top floor with a fantastic vista of city.
The gym is really state of the art, life fitness machines (2 treadmills, elliptical, bicycle, rowing machine), everything working perfectly.
The room is good and the only disadvantage is that the bathroom (with the toilet) which is practically in the same space with the bedroom and separated by a glass (exactly beside) and with visual contact with it.
The muh restaurant is aesthetically very pleasing and the breakfast has everything you could ask for.

Convenient hotel for those who don't want to spend a fortune in expensive Zürich. Excellent breakfast. Efficient check in and check out. Slow internet connection. Nice & clean room with modern amenities.

I had the opportunity to make a one day trip through Zurich so I was looking for a hotel that was east to get to from the airport and to visit the city – The Swissotel Zurich fit this perfectly, ten minute ride from airport to hotel front door and another 15 minute ride to the center of Zurich. I arrived before mid-day, but I was able to check into my room to refresh and drop my luggage. Rooms are small, but efficient, so if you are there to spend lots of time in your room this might not fit the bill. The hotel has a nice bar, and the restaurant has adequate tasty, but I recommend the city to enjoy the fare of Zurich. If I had more time I might select a hotel in the city, just to stay in the city, but I do recommend this hotel for a stop over or where you are going to be out and about most of the time.

We had a great experience when we visited in May 2011.

The hotel is well located - not too far from the airport; and train and tram stations are right outside. The views from the room were spectacular. The only negative was that the rooms were a bit cramped; but the hotel had done a good job of making the room nicely functional despite the space limitation.

The staff was friendly and were able to accommodate some of our extra meal requirements. The breakfast buffet was excellent - with a wide choice of bread, cereal and hot food. The area outside the restaurant is good for a stroll. Lastly, the staff were able to recommend some good tour plans to make the most of the short stay we had in Zurich.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the neighbouring hills

This hotel was great. It is so convenient, being located right outside the Oerlikon station, which is easily accessible from the airport and into town (on either Tram or Train).

We received a fantastic check in from Mark, who explained all the local transport and sights to us. The staff we very prompt in bringing extra pillows to our room etc.

The rooftop pool is incredible. It is an infinity pool with views of the Swiss Alps and the city. There is also a hot tub. We didn't find the massages that great, but overall our experiences at this hotel was incredible.

The breakfast is good, but very expensive at 35F.

We would definitely stay at this hotel again in Zurich.
