“Enttäuscht - disappointed!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013 via mobile

Das Zimmer ist kahl; nichts gemütliches!
Very basic - not a room to enjoy spending any time in .
Nachts sehr laut und unbequemes Bett - very loud during night and uncomfy bed.
Frühstück nichts Besonderes; breakfast - average.
Gute Lage ; good location.

Stayed October 2013, traveled as a couple

Dear guest

We are terribly sorry you did not enjoy your stay in our hotel.
Just for your information; the outside constructions in the courtyard from the building opposite the hotel are finished. And another good news coming January we will change all beds in the hotel.
Maybe you give us a chance to prove that we can do better.

Best regards,
Your Hotel Seehof Team

Stayed in Seehof hotel for business purposes. It was conveniently situated. I booked (via "hotels.com") a single standard bedroom which cost CHF 480.- for both nights (i.e. CHF 231.21 per room per night + 17.58 for taxes). The room was clean but small and in desperate need of redecorating. Poor value for price. Otherwise, the service was kind, especially the lady serving at the breakfast. I would not recommend to book a single room in that hotel. It was extremely noisy also there was work being done on the building around the hotel. No way would anyone want to spend more time than absolutely necessary in such a room. I stayed the first night on the first room but asked to be put in a room on a higher floor which Seehof Hotel accepted. The rooms were both identical.

Please accept our apology we know we do better and hope you will give us the chance to prove.

perfect location to take in the lake, the old town, and surrounding areas. Close to tram stop, main station, ferry pier and lots of restaurants. Only 15 mins train ride from the airport. We had a great 5 day stay and all the staff - on front desk and at breakfast - were all genuinely friendly and helpful. The price was great for Zurich and offered twin beds (which not many hotels seems to do but is great if travelling with friends.) The location was quiet although its just a short walk to the lake and the old town and lots of bars and restaurants. Overall I will remember a great stay in Zurich and would highly recommend this hotel to other visitors.

I had an outstanding stay in Zurich, Seehof Hotel. Respect to the management.
The front desk agents are very customer oriented, very helpful and well trained. They assisted me with information what I could do cultural on the weekend in Zurich and even they were very busy they still kept smiling. Also the housekeepers were so helpful and friendly that I had a feeling like home.
The location of this small hotel is outstanding, it is located at the lake side, just a few of minutes to the old town part of Zurich the Niederdorf and from Bellevue or Stadelhofen train station you reach quickly the airport or the main train station or the famous shopping mall bahnhofstrasse. I really enjoyed the stay. The rooms are simple, very clean and comfortable. There is TV with any international channel, and the size of the room is perfect for a city trip.
Additionally I like to mention that there is a cute nice courtyard for having breakfast in the morning which is for all including. They serve great cappuccinos, tea, fresh bread, a huge choice of swiss cheese and fresh eggs, juices and Birchermuesli;-)
There is free WIFI, free mini bar in the room and free breakfast. I loved my stay there and recommend this friendly place to everyone who needs a stay in Zurich.

I spent two nights here in early July. The hotel and rooms are rather small, but well laid out and clean. The location is well located and most major attractions are within walking distance. The main stand out and why I would recommend this hotel is the service. Everyone at the front desk was extremely helpful and informative during our stay. They made excellent restaurant suggestions, took messages, gave directions, and set up spa appointments for us. I would definitely stay here next time I'm in Zurich.

Other reviews are spot on and this is a great hotel located near the opera house. The area is quiet, yet still close to cafes, restaurants and other places around the city. Less than a minute and you can be walking along the lake. The price is great for Zurich where accommodation prices tend to be in the high side.

It was unseasonably warm during the first part of my stay and my room was on the fourth floor. There is no air conditioning, however, there was a fan. This wasn't a problem for me as I'm used to warm places, however, if you enjoy a cool room perhaps ask for a lower level room that would probably be a bit cooler.

Minibar and internet is included and another reason to choose somewhere like this hotel over the larger chain hotels that still think it's fine to charge for internet access.

Definitely recommend this hotel to people visiting Zurich.
