Although the Swissotel is several miles out of the centre of Zurich, it is so easy to get to from Zurich HB. We arrived on the sleeper train from Cologne, and simply purchased a Day card at CHF8.40 per person which meant that we could travel back and forward as much as required from the Hauptbahnhof to Oerlikon station which is adjacent to the Swissotel. S-Bahn trains depart from Platforms 21-22 at HB towards Oerlikon every 5-10 minutes and the journey only takes 6-7 minutes meaning that you are never more than 15 mins fromm the centre of Zurich. The hotel is a 1970s tower block, so although unattractive from the outside it is a different storey inside. It has recently been refurbished and all of the public areas and bedrooms are beautifully modern. Our room was on 14th Floor and was spacious and bright with a great view towards the hills around Zurich. The bed was really comfortable, and there was even a pillow menu of you preferred a certain type. There was a Nespresso machine in the room, and a Starbucks in the Lobby if you preferred a Latte etc. The highlight for us was the Breakfast, included in our Room Rate. Having stayed at Hilton, Shangri-la, Le Meridien across the world - have to say that the Breakfast was the best we have experienced anywhere. Not only was the choice and quality first rate, but it was served until 1200 midday on Saturday and Sunday - a real bonus. We were attending a concert at the Hallenstadion, and it was only 10 minutes walk away, so the hotel is also most convenient if you're heading to show or convention. Zurich is a truly beautiful city, and although famously expensive we got a rate of around £120 per night at the weekend which was excellent value for such a top class hotel. Hope to return to Zurich again, and Swissotel will be our hotel of choice.
