“Top location, ambience and service”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

I had to stay at the Radisson involuntarily because of the flight cancellation. Impressed by the friendliness and the responsiveness of the staff, starting from the check in, to the service at the bar and the restaurant but equally for housekeeping. Not to forget the servants at breakfast and particularly the chef who had lots of egg orders and did a great job fulfilling all the special requests. Well done.
Probably one thing to consider are the amenities in the room, eg missed the Q tips.

I stayed here recently on a 36 hour trip! The hotel is great! It is inside the airport so everything is close! Including the train station! The hotel is nice! I like the wine bar with the wins angels! The hotel staff members were polite and friendly! The rooms were nice! The bed was comfortable!

The hotel is great, connected to the airport that makes it really easy to walk to check-in. It is super modern, the lobby is great and the breakfast buffet was really good. It had air conditioning which was a bonus! I can't explain the wine fairies but you will have to see this yourself at the hotel bar.

My only issue was others in my party were upgraded to a better room and when I wasn't I asked why not and was told they had a higher status than me. I get it but you have to use some common sense and when you upgrade 4 people and then not the 5th person.

I recommend this hotel to stay in and it was less than 10 minutes train ride into the heart of Zurich (and the train station is underneath the hotel)

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,

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.
