"Good solid hotel"
Good location opposite Oerlekon train station. Staff are always excellent. Le Meh bar always has a fabulous atmosphere if you're a lonely business traveller. Breakfast is excellent. Rooms are comfy, warm and quiet. I stay here a lot and it is lovely to arrived after a long trip. The gym is poor though, small, dark and with limited and old equipment - it really needs a refit.
"Perfect combination of location and service"
I used to live in Oerlikon and whenever I had friends or relatives come to stay I always used to put them up in the Swissotel. All had great things to stay so when it was my turn I followed suit. Have to say the service is outstanding, the room was great value and the views unbeatable. Very convenient for both central Zurich which can both be done from the number 10 tram close to the hotel or 5/10 minute train if you fancy a less scenic route. Whether for business or pleasure it's well recommended.
Business hotels in Zurich center are very expensive, found this one to be much cheaper and although there is not that much surrounding the hotel (a couple restaurants and 1 grocery store) it is right on the train station with direct lines (only a couple mins) to either the airport or central. Has all the features you'd expect in a chain business hotel Only issue was the bed is a bit weird. Rather than a bedhead, there is a tabletop between the bed. It was fine to sleep on, but uncomfortable to sit on/watch tv
"comfortable stay...awesome position of the hotel.."
Swissotel is a good stay in Zurich. I loved the location of the hotel, it is very close to the oerlikon rail station and in the heart of market place. To shopaholic this place hence felt like heaven. The location is the biggest pros of this hotel. Rooms: The rooms were small but decent and with all modern amenities. Beds were comfortable and the rooms has station views only. washroom was small but clean with frosted door(thank god not see through doors as i was sharing room with business associate,it would have felt awkward) Food: The breakfast buffet taste good with continental options. The interiors was okay with excellent wifi in rooms too. Service: okay type..I loved the fact that they personally came and knocked on the door to wake me up after i failed to respond to the wakeup call. The only cons, it was difficult to charge mobiles and camera charger as out of many charging sockets none seemed to work properly :( Overall it was a pleasant stay...
"Close to city centre"
The hotel is one train stop from the airport and one stop from city centre. The area is not the best since it's across the street from the rail station but it is very convenient for getting around. There is a pool on the top floor which has a fantastic view of the city. The nepresso machine in the room was a nice touch. There is a Starbucks in the lobby of the hotel and a supermarket just around the corner of the hotel. Overall it's a nice hotel for a short stay in Zurich.
