“Not what I expected, MUCH better”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 March 2012

I was a bit shocked at the idea of a Holiday Inn for well over $200 per night, but apparently that is good price for Zurich.

It was a delightful surprise to find a clean and comfortable room with a large picture window looking over the airport. A nice bar and dining area with an elegance and sophistication I would hope for from a Hyatt Regency or similar. The menu had a very broad selection of foods suitable for travelers from anywhere to get something familiar, and the Chef (yes you read correctly, the Chef at the Holiday Inn Express) brought out my meal and chatted for as moment.

The hotel is new, the rest of the staff was friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: There is a pretty nice view of the airfield from the rooms on the street side, and zero aircraft noi...

We stayed here the night before our flight home. This is probably the best value that we have ever experienced in the area. I was a little apprehensive since the price was only 89 ChF a night and included a shuttle to town and airport as well as breakfast. We certainly were pleased with what we found. Very clean, comfortable room, friendly staff and prompt shuttle. There isn't any restaurants nearby but we settled for an excellent burger in the bar area.
Highly recommend this hotel and will certainly stay here again.

We recently spent our last night in Switzerland at this hotel. The courtesy bus service from the airport and into the city centre was punctual and a great bonus (between 15 mins to 30mins ride depending on time of day). The hotel is fairly new, modern, very clean and the staff were very professional and helpful. The room was a good size, very cleverly designed shower room the only negative was that the room was too warm for us and we could not change the temperature. Whether for business or pleasure I would highly recommend this economical hotel in what is otherwise a very expensive city!

My wife and I stayed there for one night in early March before we go to Interlaken on the next day.
The rooms are clean, comfortable beds and also serves free breakfast.
The management is also very quick to respond when asked for a reconfirmation e-mail for our booking from the travel agency.

Overall we are satisfied with the rooms and perhaps one that could be improved is to make the numbers queuing for shuttle buses to the airport or the city.

One that is best according to the price.

We caledl the hotel from the airport, and took the bus directly to the hotel. The hotel was very clean and the staff was very friendly. You can walk approximately 2 blocks and take a train to downtown Zurich. If you have only 1 night in Zurich (in transit), it’s certainly a good place to stop over. We did not see any good restaurants close by, but being that close to downtown, no problem!
