Reviewed 20 March 2012

I have stayed at this hotel many times on business. The front desk staff is very attentive. Rooms aren't big, but you don't feel squeezed. Everything is always nice and neat and clean. Beds are always comfortable. Bathrooms are always sparkling clean. There is a decent view from any of the high floors. The spa is nice, but the gym equipment is limited and of good quality. The pool is quite nice and is on the top floor with a great view. A 50 meter indoor pool with 3 other smaller ones for diving, children and tottlers is a short distance away and is pretty nice. I restaurant is a decent place to eat. The bar is always full. There isn't a big selection of restaurants in the area, but they are good. This hotel is a relatively short ride from the airport. If you want to get downtown, the tram is right next to the hotel and the cost is minimal. There is a small shopping area across the street and also the ever present McDonald's. This is a pretty nice hotel and I would readily recommend it to friends and business associates.

This was my second visit to the hotel. Always great value for the stay. The location leaves something to be desired, but you can easily catch the electric tram to the old city and lake.

•, The bell staff are very helpful at arrival.
•, Starbucks in the lobby.
•, Rooms are modern and comfortable.
•, In room tassimo-style coffee maker.
•, Semi stocked mini bar.
•, My standard room had only a shower (no bath).
•, Desk staff are a little slow and oblivious to waiting customers.
•, Internet is overpriced CHF 30 per day. Go to the lobby and use the Starbucks acces point.
•, Check out the Sunday market in the square. Amazing.
•, Apparently a great pool on the 31st floor. Never made it that far.
•, Lobby bar closes too early (midnight).
•, Good selection of EN newspapers FT and Intl. Herald Tribune at Guest Services.
•, Three or four English channels on the cable.
•, Breakfast restaurant amazing. Multiple stations of juice bar, cereal and grains, hot mains and accompaniments and more. That alone is worth CHF30

Room Tip: Grab your internet from Starbucks.

good location for overnight stay, midway between airport and town by train. Excellent breakfast buffet. Clean, comfortable and functional rooms. Railway station directly across from hotel, so is the tramway that goes to town. Curteous staff.

The hotel is just too average. Located in a rather dull neighborhood, far from the centre yet easy to reach by tram leaving from the stop just accross the hotel,very small rooms with a view of the industrial part of the city and lacking design and aesthetics in all respects.I also think facility pictures of the hotel are deceiving as the gym centre was super small (rather claustrophobic) and the pool on top floor was not attractive at all....Oh and the AC is one of the noisiest ever! and I had some high prior expectations both due to reviews and also because SwissHotels in Istanbul and Ankara were far too good.Zurich Hotel was nothing comparable.Breakfast is above the average and staff are outstandingly courteous and helpful.But is that enough? I don't think so.

Swissotel in Zürich is an excellent hotel that provides warm, cozy and clean accomodations.
Breakfasts were awesome and the pool, located on the top of the hotel was very cool. Depending on the weather, you can see the Alps from there.

Swissotel is strategically located in front of a train and bus stations providing transport solutions for the guests.

Behind the hotel there's a little square with a very cool bar to hang out.

Beds were very comfortable and rooms are tidy, TV kind of sucks due to the channels included.
There is a Starbucks on the first floor where you can get free wi-fi because the one provided by the hotel is not free.

Hotels need to understand that no wi-fi means no business.

Prices are kind of high, like in every good hotel in Zürich.

Overall, pretty good experience. Totally recommended if you don't care about spending some bucks but hey! You are in Zürich, nothing is cheap there.

Stayed: September 2011
