“Very comfortable stay, nice connectivity”
Reviewed 7 July 2014 via mobile

We stayed at the Raddison Blue Hotel as it was the starting point of my 1-week Trafalgar tour of Switzerland. We stayed here for two nights. It's very close to the airport; infact it's right next door. You get out of the airport, cross a very small roadway, get into the building across the street, go down a level and then follow the signs and walk across to right inside the hotel's lobby.

The check-in was quick. Rooms are great. We did not get one facing outside, so we had to settle for one that faced inside (the lobby area). It was a very busy day. But the hotel is great. Rooms are big, bathrooms are nicely done up and are very convenient. Breakfast was very good and so was their dinner. Portions are gigantic, so it's best to share a plate. Staff was also very nice and cooperative.

And because it's so close to the airport and railway station (airport connectivity, that itself is just 2 stations away from Zurich main town), Radisson Blu Zurich airport hotel is a winner.

Pros: located very conveniently for airport. Free wifi. Decent Italian restaurant.

Cons: cleanliness of first room was inadequate. Hairs on floor and toilet stained. Duty manager handled very well, giving us a new room with an upgrade immediately saying our room was not up to standard and sending housekeeping round to vacuum the new room. However on closer inspection it still could have been better (see yellow mark on photo of toilet). In a country where everything is very clean this was disappointing.

Other than the quality of cleaning needing to improve significantly this is a good choice for the airport.

Only stayed for one night on business. Wow... Fab room. Great breakfast. Great setting for business. Wish I could have stayed longer. Would have loved to visit spa and gym but sadly no time. Perfect venue for business training meetings and impressive.

The Radisson Blu is a very nice hotel. I stayed here for work, so would never be able to afford it personally, and I'm glad I stayed. The lobby is really neat because they have a 2-3 story wine tower that lights up all different colours and occasionally a performer on a wire will dance up the tower to grab a wine bottle for a customer in the lobby restaurant (overpriced). The room was immaculate, and shower (a person fetish) was sleek and sexy, and the TV was a good size (I didn't use it). Very convenient if you need to stay near the airport, but a bit of a distance to the city centre of Zurich. The hotel breakfast restaurant was delicious with a lot of variety (but extremely expensive). Overall, the hotel is excellent.

Room Tip: Try business class if you can swing it. All the drinks in the room fridge are complimentary, you get...

As a professional training/event organizer, I love this hotel for the following reasons:

1. Convenience - it is literally AT the Zurich airport/train station - don't have to walk through the weather to get there from plane or train.

2. Conference services - they are prepared for delivering professional seminars, with plenty of plenary and breakout space, good technology, healthy and tasty coffee breaks, and flexible/supportive staff who help make you look good in front of your clients.

3. Lobby and restaurants - great ambiance, totally cool "wine tower" centerpiece, very good food and service.

4. Wifi - the best hotel wifi I have ever had the pleasure to use. Works all over the hotel, seamless - it even works in the elevators.

Thank you Radisson Blu!

I stayed in the hotel for 3 days. It connected to the airport underground, just a few minutes walk to airport. The hotel and rooms are designed in modern architecture. The bed was comfortable. We had the best view from the room; saw the flight take-off and landing. The breakfast buffet had varieties food from different culinary. Chef was present on the breakfast buffet area talking to the guests. Friendly staffs, we even left luggage for one day at no cost, was complementary for the guest. The porter who came to pick our luggage was very helpful and friendly (can't remember his name, I should have, description, curly hair, possibly from African background, not to discriminate anyone but he needs a complement). ONLY, ONLY, downside was the OPEN WASHROOM, I read on the description, its a modern architecture. But what is so innovative and modern about seeing someone taking shower or doing other stuff. The curtain they provide if requested hangs outside the washroom, it should be inside, then it would be more private. Overall, the best hotel I came across.

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.
