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! Bewertung lesen

We were over new year's eves in Zürich and in the Swissotel. Somewhat difficult was the prior, since exactly at the oerlikon railway station is being built. The hotel however nothing. Otherwise, the location at the train station simply super, you can quickly and easily into the city centre. The front desk was very friendly and also offers right help, you should ask to the train, etc. Have. Especially cool was the pool in the 32. floor. Although good, it was not too crowded. We could use the time in the jacuzzi enjoy. The only drawback, there was no bathrobes ... more, here with large towels herself. The size of our room was not so big, but enough. For a städteaufentalt adequate. Great was also the view. Whoever wanted could also a special pillow menu. Particularly good for people with allergies. The breakfast was until 12 hours, which at new year really was great. Here there was a large choice, of us has everyone found something. The entire staff was very friendly and helped gladly further. So we would stay there again. Bewertung lesen

We booked the hotel for a 2 - day new year's eve holiday. When we moved into our room, we discovered, that the bathroom with the cleanliness was very saved! The heating in the room fell from, or didn't work properly. We got then 2 options (a room in the same price category there was sadly not anymore): Either we remain in the room and got a radiator, or we get a room with a king size bed instead of the double bed. We decided then for the room change, which unfortunately rather a downgrade as a upgrade was! Also ... a free wlan (in a 4 star hotel!) Was not provided, which nowadays really is not seasonable any more! The spa area, we could unfortunately not test (as we were both somewhat turmoil were!), but we could still look elsewhere we didn't miss anything; everything 08/15 (as my health club better spa possibilities than this 4 star hotel!)! Positive was the breakfast! It was missing at nothing, everything was in 'covering & abundance' as, very much choice and very delicious - top! Equally positive is the location of the tram stop on, the opposite the hotel, and in about 10 minutes in the city - great! Conclusion: For a place to stay a city break the hotel is well, as wellnesshotel rather moderate. The hotel is in our opinion not 4 stars, rather 3 stars! We would the hotel as pure overnight accomodation recommend. Bewertung lesen

A business hotel, primarily, but there were many holidaymakers there as it is a good base for travel and reasonable cost compared to hotels in Zurich itself. The rooms are modern and clean and we have been given an upgrade on every visit so far. The breakfast is one of the best we have ever had at a hotel with plenty of choice, all fresh and well prepared. The views from the higher rooms are great on a good day. The staff are so helpful and friendly and the location next to the station is second to none. We have ... stayed here twice now, and have already booked for next year. Bewertung lesen

    The main dining/breakfast room is large and we had little trouble finding a table on the busier mornings. The food and drinks were excellent. You could even have champagne! Every taste was catered for and service was attentive.

  • Lage und Umgebung

    Although Oerlikon is not very scenic, it has a variety of shops in the area and 4 minute train ride to the Airport, 6 minutes approximately to Zurich HB. You can take a train to Lucerne every hour directly from Oerlikon station. We found dining out was very expensive and headed to the Airport Food Hall for an evening meal on a few occasions.

  • Zimmer

    Although the bathrooms are rather small and the shower screen a bit awkward, everything was adequate and clean. I always appreciate a magnifying make up mirror and a fast filling bath. Beds are comfortable and the rooms spacious, with a small round coffee table and comfortable chair. Coffee/tea making facilities and fridge are very welcome.
