Rooms on high floors gave exquisite views

The pinnacle rooms on high floors are excellent, they have an excellent view and are of an amicable size. The sports area on the top, 32nd floor as amazing. You can swim in the pool whilst gazing over sublime Swiss scenery. Or go to the Hot Room and see the high speed train zoom past whilst you relax in hot heaven. Very good hotel. Will be even better when the lobby refurbishments are finished. read hotel review

Great service, great pool, gladly again!

  • March 2014
We booked this hotel because of the location selected (4 minutes by train from the airport, from the hotel to the city 6 minutes, really practical!). Our double room was in the 18. floor. It was not large particularly, but we had a corner room with a view on both sides, really great! The equipment was also very good, in addition to the usual (tv, safe) there were also a nespresso machine (capsule included) and a kettle. The bathroom was small, but also here everything was available. Disturbed us only the air conditioning - it was just very slow ... (for 'heat' comes first time 10 minutes cold air.) and the air was also very dry. Air was just a mini-break. Super was the pool and sauna in the 32. floor, with all around view, a real experience. The breakfast was also very nice, a buffet with very much selection of cold and hot food, in addition also juices, coffee and specialty coffees. Especially great was the service, it is really great in the morning just so great friendly to be welcomed. The same goes for the front desk. Gladly again! read hotel review

We were within a short time 2 times in the swissôtel Zürich, since it pleased us very well. They gave us both male a free upgrade to a business room offered. Thanks to this point to mrs Laura s. at the front desk! Prima also the pool on the top floor to relax with a great view over Zürich and the mountains. Not to beat is the excellent transport links to the airport! Only one station and you are in the terminal. The ideal hotel for a city tour, i would book it anytime again! read hotel review
