I’ve extensively reviewed the Hyatt Regency Zurich Airport twice, including recently, and will not do so again here. However, this remains my go-to hotel in Zurich and continues to nicely blend luxury, affordability, and convenience.
Hyatt Regency Zurich Airport – Convenient Family Hotel
We just spent one night here prior to our early departure on KLM to Amsterdam. 180CHF is quite a bit more than this hotel cost during the pandemic on a cold winter night, but still a superb value considering we had access to the Regency Club and complimentary breakfast in Babel Restaurant.
I just love an executive lounge when I am with the kids, because going out to eat (even for fondue) can be tedious. Instead, we had a big lunch prior to driving to Zurich and after an afternoon at the Kunshaus (art museum), we enjoyed a light dinner in the lounge. Easy and convenient, especially considering it was Sunday when most grocery stores and many restaurants were closed.
The selection did not rival a hotel lounge in Asia, but there was a nice selection of cold Mediterranean mezze.
Our room was small, but perfectly fine to get a good rest before a big travel day (two twin beds).
We pulled ourselves out of bed at 6:00 am in order to eat before our flight and enjoyed a very nice buffet breakfast in Babel restaurant. Omelets are made to order and the buffet has a great selection of hot and cold items, including some really delectable halloumi cheese. The orange juice is fresh-squeezed and while the coffee is not great, it also is not bad. I loved the blueberries (out of season).
Finally, the hotel is so convenient. We simply walked out, though “The Circle,” and crossed the street to the airport. We then proceeded upstairs to drop our bags off and were quickly on our way through security. The whole process was so easy and made an early morning flight so much more doable.
We will continue to use the Hyatt Regency Zurich as our base in Zürich. It is a great hotel, especially for families (if you have lounge access or breakfast included) and it is very easy to reach the airport by foot.
