Hotel Fly Away
Ranked #1 of 3 Hotels in Kloten
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 July 2013

The first time we had a layover in Zurich, we stayed at the Radisson Blu right inside the airport, but this time, we decided to save some money, so we chose Hotel Fly Away. It was a great choice. We found it to be quiet, clean and comfortable, and for much less than the Radisson, which is fine hotel in its own right. The Hotel Fly Away's shuttle bus was right on time. We were pleasantly surprised to find out that the Fly Away is located in Kloten, which is a real village, not just a collection of airport hotels. So, we could choose from a variety of restaurants and shops, and there was a nice playground nearby where our kids could run around. The best part was the inexpensive late check out. They allowed us to check out at 8pm, since we had a late departure for Bangkok. This late departure only cost us CHF50, which is a bargain in my book. And the two restaurants on the ground floor of the hotel were both great (and they seem to be popular with locals, not just hotel guests). All in all, it was a great discovery and I'd recommend it to anyone.

Room Tip: The rooms at the end of the halls are quietest.

This is my third stay in this hotel and I have notice a deterioration in almost everything. Obviously this is a budget hotel and as such you shouldnt expect miracles, but the service was tired, the rooms are dated (for example TV does not work, duvet is too small for the bed...), breakfast continental selection is poor and mediocre quality...
So for a quick night if you are looking for value near the arport this is OK, otherwise probably is better to look elsewhere

We booked this hotel for the last few nights of our family holiday, prior to flying back to the US. As Zurich was not really on our list of "destinations" for this trip, we were mainly influenced by the reasonable price (for Zurich) and the easy same-day cancellation policy, in case we wanted to spend an extra night in Austria. What a pleasant surprise! The 3rd floor "family room" was clean, spacious, and comfortable. The staff was great, and the location perfect. After a week of fog, slush, and snow in the Austrian Alps, the weather in Zurich was perfect, and we had arguably the best part of our holiday here. The train is a very short walk (1 block) from the hotel, and the Zurich Card recommended by the staff gave us two days of remarkable touring at a very reasonable cost, including all trains & buses, the lake boats and the cable car to the Felsenegg & Panorama trail.

Room Tip: The family rooms are on the top floor.

Nice quiet hotel located well for Kloten, the airport (free shuttle) and the training Zurich. Restaurant serves great food too, and this plus their pizza place were both very busy on a Tuesday night. Plenty of local restaurants too if you fancy a walk or something different.

The first thing I noticed that this hotel was VERY Clean. The rooms were spacious, nicely furnished & comfortable. I was very surprised because I thought this was a budget airport hotel.
The staff was so friendly and even though I arrived late, the pizzeria still made me a VERY good personal pizza.
HUGE PLUS: The hotel is located in a quite neighborhood about 5 minutes from the airport and has a free shuttle service located in the airport's hotel bus area Zone 3.

Great surprise since we weren't expecting much for the price and location. Very friendly and accommodating staff. Helpful with plane booking, taxi and power adapter. The restaurant was wonderful. One of the best meals in all our dinners in Europe and reasonable for Switzerland. We arrived on Mothers Day and they were extremely busy and they still got us in with a fabulous meal. Highly recommend the restaurant.

We stayed one night right before returning to the US from our European vacation. The hotel is located in a quite neighborhood about 5 minutes from the airport and has a free shuttle service located in the airport's hotel bus area Zone 3. Although the shuttle also serves several other hotels, Fly Away is closest, so is first on/off which is nice.

Hotel staff were very helpful, the room was comfortable and clean, and had free Wifi in the rooms. A restaurant is located in the lobby, but we had to leave very early for the airport and did not eat there.

All in all, a nice, clean, comfortable hotel that is convenient to travelers coming or leaving Switzerland via Zurich airport.
