I just had a very short stay at this little gem of a hotel as arrived late by train and had an early morning flight next day. The price is reasonable for Switzerland.

About 15 mins walk to opfikon train station, which will take you about another 15 minutes by train to city center. Room is really small, reminds me of hotel in Japan. Very basic amenities but sufficient. Free shuttle bus to airport is the reason i pick this hotel.

Good value, 10 mins from Glattbrugg or Opfikon stations. Facilities good, rooms perhaps a little dated. Rooms on 5th floor have open terrace areas on the roof. Plenty of restaurants locally as well as those in the hotel. Coop supermarket handy too open long hours. Only (minor) downside are the planes, seems a rush when the airport opens for landing...
