I stayed here one night on business. It is very convenient for the airport but out in the countryside. The hotel offers a free shuttle to and from the airport. It is housed in an old cotton mill so a very interesting building. The rooms are all on the fourth floor. They are large, modern and clean. Great shower in... More

Went here with a work event. Looks like this place specialises in "events" so the layout is a tad unconventional. But that aside can't really fault it. Food & service were all perfectly good, and some of the decor also added interest (old machinery from Spinnerei). Also liked the car museum and the bowling alley.

Riverside Hotel is in a very nice location right on the Glatt River. They claim to be an airport hotel, careful depending on time of the day travel time is up to 45 minutes. They offer airport transfer which is not always reliable. No connection to public transportation. Taxi transfer from the airport: 90 -100 SFR depending on traffic. Rooms... More

We booked this hotel for a bit of luxury on a cycling trip but were very disappointed. The main problem is the design of the bathroom. The walls are all clear glass and there's just a flimsy curtain covering some of it so that while in the shower or on the toilet you are in view of your room mate!... More

Spent a day and night for a workshop here and was really pleased with all the service. Excellent and competent friendly support in the meeting room. Nice food although some dishes were unusual. Direct shuttle transfer to the airport. As our host paid for all services, I am not sure how much it cost, but probably quite pricey. If we... More

This hotel is a bit difficult to find as its address gives a street, but not a street number. Certain navigational systems get confused about that and may not lead you to the hotel without asking you to make a few u-turns. It's no big deal, but if you are totally unfamiliar with the area it may make you a... More

Beautiful countryside and good for walking, hiking, cycling etc. The bedrooms are spacious and very modern.....down to a glass bathroom!! They are perfectly appointed. Everywhere was spotless.

First time here at Hotel Riverside having a 3-day business meeting. The hotel is located right next to a river where you can enjoy the tranquility of nature. The room is spacious and comfortable while the bathroom is equipped. The bowling center is located inside the hotel but it's closed in summer.

Hotel Riverside is quite an interesting place: perfectly designed hotel rooms in an office compound, with a Ferrari Enzo downstairs. It turned out the owner had built a place he liked, the Ferrari is also his. If you are just passing by like we were with a family of three, this is a really good place to sleep, like we... More
