Although the rest of the hotel was very nice, the bathrooms in this hotel were enough to ruin my stay. I prefer to have privacy in a bathroom - especially to go to the toilet and these rooms had a glass wall which you could see through straight to the toilet . If your partner was in bed or in the main bedroom area - he could see straight into the shower or toilet which I found very off putting and not terribly romantic - A blind would solve this problem . We ordered dinner in the restaurant and even though it wasnt busy and the waiter walked past us a lot during the next 45 minutes - it took one of the female waitresses to look at us and wonder why we were'nt eating - we then saw her go to the waiter and ask what we had ordered and he then realised he hadnt put our order in. By this time we were just too tired to eat so asked for the bill......

Dear GabbySydney

Thank you for taking the time to comment on your stay with us. It is a pity the bathrooms ruined the entire experience at our hotel. Regarding the window between the bathroom and the bedroom; the Radisson Blu Hotels have modern designs with a twist, this too is the reason for the window in the bathroom. We do however offer a curtain which we hang in the room to guarantee privacy.

We regret to hear that our service was not up standard, I will discuss this with my F&B Manager.

We nevertheless hope to welcome you back again in the future and that we will be able to convince you of our standard.

Thanks again and kind regards,

Werner Knechtli

We arrived at 10pm after a long trip from perth via Dubai. It was great to walk for 5 minutes through the airport and get to the hotel to have a shower and well earned sleep, which helped with the jet lag.
Check in was a breeze, no language difficulties.
The room was bigger than I expected, 3rd floor, no views to speak of, right next to a road, but it was very quiet. No problems with traffic or planes and I am a light sleeper.
Very clean and comfortable, the pillows were flat, so I rang and more were sent.
Getting into Zurich wasn't a problem on the rail. We enquired at the desk and they gave us the information and offered to sell us tickets. It takes less than 15 minutes to Zurich HB the main station. Zurich is very expensive, as are all Swiss cities. So I suppose $260 per night is reasonable for a 4 star hotel.

Room Tip: Maybe ask for a higher floor and facing the runways if you're interested in plane watching

Whenever travelling via Zurich, I love staying at the Radisson Blu at the airport. The hotel offers good facilities for wheelchair guests. Spacious rooms, well equipped toilets, friendly staff and good restaurants makes the Hotel ideal for overnight travellers.

This is a great location for staying before an early flight out of Zurich. The hotel was clean and convenient, however it was pretty expensive. You pay a pretty big price for the convenience but we did it for the peace of mind that we would be there on time without the fear of an airport shuttle getting you there too late or the cost of hiring a ride at that early morning hour.

Great location. if one wants to stay near the airport, one shouldn't look for any other alternative. The rooms are big and spacious and the air conditioning is really efficient and effective! The hotel is connected with the airport and the Zurich Flughafen train station.
The only thing that stands out is the wine tower. It is a delight to see one of the angels perform in it.
Overall, a good hotel.

I stayed here, as one does, because I had an early flight out from Zurich. It's very convenient for the airport (you can walk to any terminal and the trains). The room was funky, fun, and up to date - not that I was in it for very long. I met a friend at the restaurant and found the food to be unpretentious and tasty, with a nice wine list to complement. Check in was a tad slow as there were a number of people checking in at the same time. If you need to be near the airport, this is a great choice!
