Rated 3,0 out of 5,0 by cmjcmj Recommended... but only just !
Staff are nice and efficient, rooms very small, air-conditioning is, it seems, just for show - no cold air actually comes out if it, even on "full". Breakfast adequate (again, only just), watered down orange juice with more water than juice ! Location is not a destination but hotel may be of use for a one-night stay en-route to/from somewhere. I would not recommend this hotel for longer stays due to the size of the rooms and non-functioning air-con, at least for stays from Spring to Autumn - and definitely not for even a one-night stay during the height of Summer - but it is bearable for a short night stay. We checked in late afternoon and had a meeting directly after checking in, so we set the room air-con to full and left the hotel, arriving back at shortly after 11 p.m., choosing to eat out as there is not any "real" food served in hotel. A word of warning : nearby restaurants (and even further afield) and mostly mediocre but VERY expensive. There was a smell in the room, coming from the air-con unit and the room was warmer than when we had left it ! I requested another room and was shown one on a lower floor, in the middle of a noisy group who walked around the corridors for several hours visiting each other in their various rooms. Our new room was marginally cooler but this was only because it was on a lower floor. The air-con didn't work in this room either but set it to minimum, just in case... of course, this was a waste of time but at least it didn't start smelling - like setting it full would most likely have done. As it was the only free room and it was too late to find anywhere else, we reluctantly accepted to stay. Conclusion : I would maybe stay again, if the price was right, but NOT in Summer (our stay was on May 24th and the rooms were already stuffy and without opening windows) and with the knowledge that room size and breakfast choice is minimal. Reasons : rooms are clean, staff are friendly. They have an (expensive) underground car park but you may be lucky an find a spot (only 2 or 3 available) on the waste-ground opposite, next to the train lines - at your own risk of course. NB : off-site Fitness Centre may cost you more than the hotel room. Beware : parking next to the hotel, even whilst unpacking you car and checking-in, in the residential apartments' parking spaces may result in your car being vandalised. The hotel manager told us of some cases of previous hotel clients having their cars badly scratched and dented by "sledge-hammer". Bottom line : I would - at a pinch and with the above-stated provisos - recommend this hotel but only just...

Rated 4,0 out of 5,0 by JDD2953 Fantastic if all you eat is pizza
This is a lovely, modern, comfortable hotel with very friendly and at tentative staff. The negative for me was the only thing on the menu was pizza!

Rated 5,0 out of 5,0 by NYC12345 Brand new hotel, comfortable and clean
If you have a car in Zurich, no need to think - just go to this hotel. It's 15-20 minutes drive from the center, but everything else is impeccable: the price is right, the hotel is brand new, rich choices for breakfast which is included in the rate, clean an bright everywhere.
