“Excellent hotel directly at airport”
Reviewed 30 August 2014

Excellent hotel, very nice rooms, perfect to stay a night before continuing travelling directly at the Zurich airpoirt. The rooms are nice and calm, the hotel lobby bar with is "wine elevator cube" a nice place to have a drink. For us this was the perfect start of our holidays.
The breakfast buffet is excellent and the rooms are quiet, especially given the fact it is just next to the airport.

Perfect hotel for proximity to both the Zurich Airport and to visit Zurich (via short train ride). The rooms are modern and very clean! The Hotel staff are friendly & helpful. Meals were amazing! We would definitely stay again.

This place isn't cheap but there's no better way to catch an early flight than to already have dispensed with the rental car/transit issues and simple walk from your hotel to your plane. We do this a lot in the states with those Marriotts they have at U.S. airports.

This place is more expensive than those Marriotts, but it's also very cool! The lobby soars above the check-in desks and they've got this bar that features a tower of wine. Keep your eyes on it. Their method of retrieving bottles is like watching a mini Cirque du Solie performance. Very fun---and right there for all lobby denizens to easily see.

The rooms were very spacious and clean. Ours looked out on a parking garage vs. runways, but it was quiet. Never heard a plane engine.

The hotel lobby computers would not allow me to print a boarding pass from Delta's website, but they were more than happy to do the deed over at those check-in desks.

The only other slightly negative thing is that the hotel is actually a pretty long stroll away from security and gates---a good 10-15 mintes, but still not bad and way better than deposting a rental car that morning or having to catch some hotel shuttle.

Room Tip: Hang out in the lobby for a few minutes in the evening and wait for somebody to order a bottle of wi...

Stayed one night in the hotel and though it was rather expensive we did not regret our decision of staying here.

Pros: the location walking distance to the airport and train station is unbeatable. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is decent with a nice eggs station to boot. Gym was very spacious and well equipped!

Cons: expensive with the little bits all adding up for instance there isn't any complimentary bottle of water in the room. The restaurant was good but again rather pricey, beat is to just walk to the train station where there are plenty other options.

Great proximity to ZRH airport (walking distance of 10 minutes to departure gates, dragging suitcase on wheels). Only complaint was glass wall between toilet and sink, serving no purpose. I walked into it going to the bathroom in the middle of the night. (I am 72).

Yes, I have a strange fetish to airport hotels and this one has it all. A good airport hotel is a cosmopolitan spaceship where there is no day or night, each guest has a different biological clock, no one is in a harry to see any city, from your window you do see airplanes landing and parking in the most exciting order but its so quiet, you don't even hear the silence. You sit on the bar or in the spa and hear 100 languages, and even in the middle of the day people become low talkers. Then you wake up in the morning and walk to the check in gate. When the hotel is inside the terminal and doesn't require shuttles, that makes a huge difference. The Radisson blu is perfect, short walk inside the terminal, nice restaurant, great atmosphere, wonderful service, a gym with a steam room and a sauna and relaxation beds.

Nice rooms, comfortable bed and practical bathroom with everything you need!
Interesting wine store _ an acrobatic young lady will locate your wine. The restaurant provides good quality fare to a reasonable hour.
