I´ve stayed twice at this hotel; the first time was good (it was 2 years ago) and that was the reason why I decided to book again the same hotel for this occasion, but the second time, which exactly was last week (it was a long staying, 9 nights!!!) has been extremely bad; the room was completely FULL OF COCKROACHES,...

This is a clean, convenient and calm apartment hotel in the center of Oerlikon. It has no reception and no services, but the rooms are clean and comfortable, there is no gimmick but all you need is available.Beds are comfortable, there is a fully equipped kitchen and bathroom with shower. By foot to theatre 11 or sports or music events... More

I stayed in this hotel as part of a business function as it was within walking distance of the venue. It does not have a reception area and I did not have the 4 digit number of my reservation handy. After calling I found out I made a mistake in the reservation, instead of November I had reserved December. The... More

We firstly arrived without knowing you needed a booking reference number to be able to get your key from a machine outside of the building. Because we have been travelling for 4 months we rely on wifi and do not have simcards. So we tried connecting to the wifi but you need to be able to receive an SMS code... More

We received a 5 digit pin via email to retrieve our transponder to enter into the apartment a few days after confirming our booking. It was close to a 7-minute walk from the Oerlikon train station, a stop away from Zurich HB main station. There wasn't a clear sign to the entrance of the inn, we had to ask the... More

It's not even a hotel. It's really an apartment. I received booking cofirmation from Expedia but upon arrival, was told by the (detached) restaurant of the same name that I needed a code to enter on the machine on the outside of the building. I had not received an email containing such a code so was forced to make a... More

It's taking 'self-service' to the extreme. This is my second night here and already I have helped two stranded couples from Korea and Australia who could not get their keys. You MUST be in possession of the 5-digit key collection code to punch into a box next to the door (not the box at the door), to have your key... More

Pros: affordable price for Zurich, good location with easy connection to the main train station and airport, rooms have private bathroom. Cons: no reception, so nobody to help if you need anything, key boxes are not very easy to use, almost no housekeeping (they occasionally change towels, nothing else. We stayed for 4 nights and there was visible dirt on... More

The good part of this hotel is the location. Very near to Oerlikon station. Tram 11 is the mode of transport around. Zurich Airport, HB both are connected via frequent trains from Oerlikon. Rooms are also OK. Now coming to the not so good part. I don't understand how a 3 star facility won't have a reception. Moreover, there is... More
