The restaurant in this hotel doesn’t accept US vaccination cards as proof of COVID vaccination. They they refused to serve us, even for sitting outside. The COVID certificate app that they wanted only applies if you have been vaccinated in Switzerland. So what are tourists to do?

We stayed there for two nights. The hotel is pretty new and all was very clean. Spa was very nice. The hotel is right at the train station Zürich Altstetten and very easy to access by public transport. The only thing we missed was a bit more choice for dinner.

My partner and I are travelling a lot for work and private. We always look out for good hotels and stays at a responsible price. A-ja matches all of our expectations and we keep spreading the word about our great stays there to our friends and family. A few highlights that I want to stress: Super clean and lovely rooms - we like the simplicity of the room's set up and that you get a lot of space. You don't feel like you are put in a cage, but really that you can freely breathe and find a nice place to relax. Gym - Given that we are both travelling a lot, I like to add 1 or 2 workouts to my stay. The gym at A-ja is not super big, but offers everything you need. The equipment is of good quality and clean for use. Spa - I highly recommend to make use of their beautiful spa area. It is super relaxing. to use all of their saunas and take some time off to relax. I think just the spa is worth a visit. Parking - Parking in Zürich is super expensive and parking lots even harder to find. A-ja offers onsite parking. Unfortunately I did not find that information upfront my last stay so I first parked somewhere else, but I can only recommend it to people travelling by car - this is where you save money! Service - The staff is always super friendly and nice. Proximity to the city - The hotel is just a few minutes train ride away from the main station in Zürich. This may sound far away, but I've never came across a hotel that is this quiet and at the same time so close to the city center. A-ja is my favorit and whenever I have to go to Zürich I try to stay over night, just to stay for one night at this relaxing place. I actually considered whether I should even put this review because I hope there will still be rooms left afterwards!

This was my first time going international - a very spontaneous decision, having purchased my ticket 5 days before my flight and arranging hotel and events just as soon. It was a trip to go meet someone very special to me for the very first time, and the whole process was stressful to THINK about. I'm originally from the United States, so going international when I knew very little about the language, location, and transport was quite concerning and a scary idea at first. However, Aja Zurich was an ideal hotel for my first time in Switzerland and international in general. In terms of location, there's a train that's very close to the hotel, along with buses, and it's pretty easy to get wherever I need to go from the hotel. Such easy access made traveling and sight-seeing much easier than I had anticipated. The local services made it so I didn't have to leave the vicinity every time I was hungry - the deli and bar offer a sufficient number of options to keep you happy for the duration of the stay. Additionally, the Coop provided me with any other items I might have forgotten for my trip. The staff for the hotel, bar, deli, and Coop were incredibly helpful and kind, making the trip a lot less stressful than I was expecting. The room itself was beautiful -- I had yet to stay in such a seemingly luxurious room, with a beautiful backdrop, pleasant window view, comfortable bed and blankets, and a shower/bathroom that I admittedly fell in love with. The fitness center and spa center are a nice added touch to the whole experience. While I didn't have the opportunity to participate in these this time around, I fully intend to the next time I'm around. The rooftop view is also nice, and a wonderful place to relax and unwind after an adventurous day (I did take advantage of that!) Overall, the experience was fantastic. My only issue was the lack of control of the thermostat -- regardless if I wanted to hotter and cooler in the room, it didn't really seem to take effect. Luckily, the room was a pretty comfortable temperature for me (a bit chilly, but that's generally how I prefer sleeping). I thank the kind staff for a wonderful and helpful experience!

Newly built, beautifully decorated, modern yet cozy and clean hotel situated 5 minutes walking from Zurich Altstetten train station. Altstetten train station is 3 stops away from Zurich's central district (Zurich Stadelhofen). The convenience store at the hotel and the Nivea house is situated next to the reception and the convenience store is kept open for 24 hours. Apart from all these, next to the hotel building, there's a Coop Grocery store. I must say, this hotel exceeded my expectations. The room was beautifully decorated, and it was exceptionally clean.
