Reviewed 22 March 2014

Right in the centre of Kloten, minutes by a short but frequent free shuttlebus from Zurich Airport, and walking distance to the suburban train line to downtown, you’ll find the Welcome Inn.
This is not my first stay here and I am happy to report that many renovations have taken part over the years, however, the welcome is always as efficient and friendly as ever. The staff at Reception anticipate your needs and hence the check-in/check-out are seamless.
The rooms are spacious and well equipped with very comfortable beds and first class bedding and linens; the windows double-glazed for a good night’s sleep.
The breakfast room serves a buffet with items for all tastes. Two restaurants, one more casual than the other, offers Swiss and international dishes.
An empty fridge (for one's own snacks) and and old-fashion soap bar, or no-touch soap dispensers, instead of un-hygienic touch/squeeze soap dispenser bottles are my only pet peeves... surey I am not alone?

We stayed here during the return leg of a recent vacation. While it may feel a little dated without the fancy room key cards and such, it is well maintained has generously proportioned rooms with separate toilet and shower. The hotel is practically in the Airport , and quite near the train station. It has a regular shuttle to the airport and ski equipment is accommodated with a locker at the front door . We were surprised that we weren't affected by street or airport noise. The on site restaurant provides a modest but ample menu, breakfast is not included but if you have the time and are hungry it's worth the money.

If we travel through Zurich again we will stay here.

I arrived at 11pm, left at 6am so I just wanted to sleep. This hotel was ideal for the purpose, and value-wise was at least 30% cheaper than anywhere else.
Much more convenient than ibis, which is further from the airport.

I only had 1 day in Zurich and stayed at the Welcome Inn. It has a free shuttle to and from the airport which is obviously very convenient but it's also very close to the S7 stop at Kloten. That stop is about 10-15 minutes from the main station and the old part of town a.k.a. all the main sites to see. Zurich is one of the more expensive places I've traveled but the room we stayed in had 4 beds and the hotel is reasonably priced so split 4 ways would be a great deal!. The room was bright, very clean and safe. The staff are wonderful and very helpful. There are a few restaurants near by but not a large selection. May want to eat before heading back to that part of town?? Would definitely stay there again!!

Room Tip: I didn't book the room so I'm not sure about variety. There is some sort of construction/bui...

My husband and I have stayed several times at Hotel Welcome Inn upon arrival to Zurich from USA. We like the free airport airport shuttle and ability to check-in early afternoon after flight arrival around noon. Rooms are bright, very clean and the modern decor is warm and welcoming. Hotel restaurant is consistently good and served up two great meals for us this time - grilled chicken breast with nice vegetable medley and fries and a traditional Swiss dinner of chicken in mushroom cream sauce, butter noodles, salad and veggies plus ice cream, a good value at 25CHF. Some traffic noise from a traffic circle adjacent to the hotel is audible at night but is usually not enough to prevent us from sleeping well.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from traffic circle side of hotel.

I had an overnight stay at Zurich in December. My stay at Welcome Inn was great! Staff were lovely, room was nice & clean & location was close to airport. Hotel transfer is free as well which is always good. There was two little chocolates in my room & bottled water which was a nice little surprise when I arrived. Would definitely recommend it!

We have been going back to this hotel for over 20 years. It's a great 3* hotel very close to Zurich International Airport - with a free shuttle running every 15 minutes. The staff is always nice. The rooms are clean, comfortable and quite - everything you need to rest before catching an early morning flight. Chocolates on the pillows - a nice (and Swiss) touch you don't see anymore that often...
