Amazing hotel and amenities

Posted Apr 26, 2017
Gorgeous rooms, clean and modern. Staff by far the nicest hotel staff I have I ever dealt with. Helpful and kind. Superb location for train use and killer views from rooms and top floor pool and spa floor.

Convenient hotel with pool near Oerlikon station

Posted Apr 25, 2017
Pros: Fantastic pool and spa on the top floor of the hotel with amazing views, I didn't want to leave!
Cons: There was no bathtub in my bathroom which was disappointing, bathroom was very small too
Location: Across from Oerlikon train station. For city centre, get a train to Zurich central station which is about 10-15 minutes away
The Swissotel is very well location for exploring around Zurich even though it is not right in the city centre as it's just across the road from Oerlikon train station and tram stops. It is the tallest hotel in Zurich and has amazing views, especially from the rooftop swimming pool on the 32nd floor which I used in the evening the day I arrived and next morning. The room I had was a single room, but double bed and was rather small for what I paid for, but the bed was very comfortable. I was disappointed that there was just a shower and no bathtub and this is unusual for a four star hotel in Zurich. Besides the lack of bathroom space, the room was nice, well equipped and had a Nespresso coffee machine and teas and a very large TV screen. It was quiet, too, even though the hotel seemed busy, especially in the cocktail bar same evening. The spa area was really nice, but the changing room was really small and wouldn't be pleasant if it was busy with more than three people in there. I liked the steam room and sauna and relaxation area. There is a jacuzzi by the pool and gym and the beauty salon has various treatments available but it all looked very expensive. I didn't have any food in the hotel as my room rate wasn't including breakfast, but that didn't matter as there is a Starbucks joined onto the hotel and various places to eat and shops near the hotel. This hotel is walking distance from Hallenstadion arena, so it's ideal for anyone attending concerts at that venue.

Easy Access to Zurich Airport

Posted Feb 27, 2017
We needed a hotel for a night on the way back from skiing before flying back to NY. The hotel is a very short walk from the Oerlikon train station, which is a 5-minutes train ride from the airport, so you can get to the airport in about 15 minutes if you time it right. To us it was better than an airport hotel as the neighborhood has nice restaurants and is closer to city center in case you have time for a quick trip. The hotel itself is modern; the rooms new and, while not spacious, very comfortable; and the plush 32nd-floor SPA offers a pool, jacuzzi, and sauna room.

Excellent location near the train station

Posted Dec 31, 2016 on Orbitz
Hotel is a large building right across the street from the train station. Rooms are quite and neat. Not so large. Hotel has a great pool on the 33rd floor. Nearby are plenty of restaurants and shops. A good hotel for a short visit.

Perfect location on the edge of downtown Zurich

Posted Dec 23, 2016 on Orbitz
Pros: Location, clean room, peace and quiet, train, breakfast.
Cons: Nothing
Location: Edge of Zurich. 5 minutes to the lake by car.
Really enjoyed the quiet clean room and kind staff. Excellent meals in the hotel restaurant if needed. Garage parking. The train to Zurich is literally outside the front door. A great choice!
