Mixed feelings but great memories after all

First of all it is not that close to the center as I expected and as written at hotels.com, Oerlikon is about 45 minutes’ walk from the center. Of course, station is right across the street and there are lot of trains going in direction to the main rail station. But if you get back late from the center, you need to take taxi anyway and it costs you at least 33 EUR.
Check in was smooth and quick, no problems. My first room had a bed reading lamp which was broken, kettle lid was also broken, floor carpet was dirty, no slippers and no bathrobe. Next day I got upgraded and new room was better.
Breakfast is very average and does not worth 35 EUR unless you drink whole bottle of prosecco which was offered among other drinks for free.
Spa. That is a real pearl of this place which can make you forget about all disadvantages and bad experience. It has great view on mountains and city and you relax totally while enjoying the view after workout and swimming.
Bar. Bartenders totally made my stay. Thanks to Tobias, Patrick, Ksenia and other girl who worked on 23th of August I felt like in my home bar. They were very considerate and friendly, talking to me all the time in spite of being busy and advising right drinks, excellent job! I would say it is a heart and soul of this hotel and that team make their best to make guests feel happy. Dear management, if you read this review, please reward them, they have deserved it.
