Value for money but better options exist @ same chain Swiss Star Aussersihl. The rooms are noisy, you can hear the lift going up and down and people walking the stair. If you are a light sleeper this is not an option for you.

Stayed for one night, it is right next to the station in Oerlikon which provides easy access to centre Zurich and the surround areas by public transport which was my only source of movement in Zurich so this was useful. My room looked over the train tracks behind and it was hot so I kept the balcony window open and... More

It is cheap but remember you will set fire to your money. Do not go there believe me. every thing was terrible noisy, dirty, bad location and they did not give me the bill with funny excuses. Maybe they fear from something ! do not go there you will be regretful.

The apartment had good aspects about it in that it was roomy and well furnished. The Internet was also very fast and satisfying. However the traffic from outside brought in the worst type of noise, I couldn't sleep all night. There are no garbage bins in the bathroom and no remote control for the tv. And again, the noise is...

A place if horror in summer. Because of a huge trainstation 50 meters from this place. You can't open a window because the noise is terrible. So.....your room is a sauna and still noisy. Worst value for money you can imagine.

Worst place I have ever stayed, and that says a lot! Disgusting neighborhood, no air conditioning meant our room was easily over 90 degrees all night long. No fan, loud noise from the street, and the worst part- THIS IS LOCATED OVER TOP OF AN INDIAN RESTAURANT AND THE ENTIRE PLACE SMELLS LIKE SWEATTY CURRY! Don't stay here, period. Travelocity... More

We payed £55 per night which is cheap for Zurich/Switzerland, so was not excpecting to much. The train station and Tram line all within a 2min walk. Train less than 5mins to airport/Zurich city centre. Tram about 20min to centre. Oerlikon has everything you require Supermarkes/Restaurants etc. As its an apartment you will have access to a small kitchen with... More

Great location for getting into Zurich three different tram lines and a main railway station all within 5 mins of block. However this and being on corner of main road junction with several local bars makes ear plugs a minimum noise reduction equipment for any stay.

I would avoid this place. It is right next to the train station which is currently under construction. There is constant loud noise from trains and construction that run all through the night. I am not a light sleeper but I could not sleep at all. Noise reduces very slightly if you close the window but when you do it... More
