Our 5 weeks around the world trip started like this: After getting the last seats on the flight from Luxembourg to Zurich we would not have the same luck for the onward journey: Only 3 seats left on the Emirates 777 to Dubai – we are 4- meaning we were stuck in Zurich until at least the next day! So here we are with 2 kids at 11pm and nowhere to sleep. That’s when the Radisson Blu Zurich Airport hotel saved us.
Brainstorming started on the iPad and it appeared quickly that the most convenient choice would be the Radisson Blu Zurich Airport.
Located inside the airport, the Radisson Blu is a perfect choice if you have a layover in Zurich. It is easily accessible from the terminal in about 5 minutes walking.
Checkin was quick. At that time there was nobody else anyway!
The Atrium is very spacious, with two glass elevators and access to the bar. The spectacular wine “cellar” is several floors high. Choose a bottle, and a beautiful creature will fly to pick it up.
We stayed in a family room that had a large king sized bed and a convertible sofa for the kids. The room was really spacious and the furnitures modern. The kids enjoyed the glimpse on the runway we had from the window.
Our flight was late in the evening so we paid for a late check out. Having a place to relax and stretch before a night flight is key to stress free traveling with kids! We had a pleasant stay at Radisson Blu Zurich Airport and we would not hesitate to stay here again on a layover in Zurich.
Pros and Cons:
+Possibility to have a late check-out
+ Good noise isolation
+ City is easily accessible by train
