The Holiday Inn Zurich Messe is a functional hotel; it is conveniently located directly across from the Messe, and kitty-corner to the Hallenstadium, It is within easy walking distance of the main Oerlikon shopping area.

I really liked this Hotel. It's located in the pleasant and leafy Messe district opposite to the Stadionhalle concert arena and a major tram stop. Therefore, it's a convenient location from which to reach the central city. The rooms are comfortable and modern; the bedding was excellent and I really loved the flick switch curtain shutters. There are good computer...

It is a relief to find Holiday Inn properties that have retained their distinctive quality. This is not always so, but this hotel is modern, comfortable, convenient, and well staffed with multilingual staff. Public transport is easy, once you get the hang of it. Apart from usual fair or exhibition activities, the area is quiet. The only down side is...

We stayed two nights after arriving in Zurich. The hotel is new, clean, and has a very nice staff. The hot breakfast is well worth it! The rooms are cosy, not large, but the beds are great and the bathroom clean and modern.

Stayed over 1 night for biz since my office is walking distance. The basics in the hotel is available; quiet and what to expect of a Holiday Inn hotel. Very convenient to come by tram 10 from the airport and walking distance from cozy Oerlikon where you can have dinner and drinks. I would've appreciated a little bit bigger gym...

We had the opportunity to stay at this hotel because another hotel which we booked in the same area, Hotel Sternen Oerlikon, messed up our booking, and despite the last minute check in, we had a pleasant one night stay with a huge executive room which comes with complimentary mini bar.
