This hotel is situated on the Zurichsee outside the city of Zurich, and therefore benefits from a quieter location, but with its own pier and a railway station very close at hand guests can be in the city for shopping, sightseeing or dining within thirty minutes. Two sightseeing boats visit the pier every hour, the cost of which is included... More

Central location but in a quiet side street. Very friendly staff. Simple but clean rooms. The 4th star is for the Kiehl's products, and the free minibar with soft drinks. The wifi was free as well, but was a bit slow and fell out some times. The breakfast was wonderfull, and the coffee was great :) We missed a kettle... More

Very positive surprise in the otherwise rather drab and shabby 3 star Switzerland hotel landscape. Very affordable, in quiet side street, but very central location along east side of Zurich lake. Just behind Opera house. Simple but not spartan rooms, cosy. Free minibar with water, coke and a beer. Nice Kiels shampoo and lotion. I was on forth floor towards... More

Hotel Seehof is a nice little hotel behind the Opera in the pleasant Seefeld area, not far from the Zurich lake. Staff was genuinely nice and helpful both at check-in and check-out. The breakfast staff was equally friendly - and made some of the best hotel coffee I've ever had (strong and plentiful!) The room was quite basic, looking like... More

Staying in Zurich doesn't typically come cheap so when I found a rate of 170 CHF a night at Hotel Seehof, my expectations were measured. I have to say that I was thoroughly impressed. I was upgraded to a double room with super plush feather pillows and duvet. The items in the mini-bar (beer, soda, water, and a few snacks)... More

We stayed here for one night in the Junior Suite. It's a block or two down from the Opera House and one block up from the lake. It's an easy walk from the Opera House tram station (on line 4). I thought it was a great location and an easy walk to Old Town. When we arrived early, our room... More

Very good value. Extremely helpful and friendly staff. Breakfast was very nice. Excellent water pressure in the shower, and high quality bath products (shampoo/conditioner). The decor is a bit spartan, but we prefer high quality service and friendly staff over ornaments! Beds were very comfortable (two twins put together, which is very common in Europe). Good location. Small fridge in... More
