“Nice Hotel very comfortiable.”
Reviewed May 13, 2012

I would go back very nice hotel staff was very friendly. This hotel is located within walking distance to the railstation and the pick for the tour bus. For those who have never been to Zurich it is very expensive there for eating out. expect to paid a mnium of $100 for dinner and even McDonalds is around $20 a meal for one person.

Location was excellent and terrible at the same time. Hotel is located very close to the train station, shopping, restaurants and the lake. However, it is located on a very busy downtown street making the noise factor terrible. Was there with a group of business associates, half the group was facing the street and could not sleep due to the street noise all night long while the others were facing the courtyard and did OK with less noise. Room was tiny and the shower was smaller than on a cruise ship, which is saying something. Water pressure however was strong and water hot. Rooms were way too hot but could not open window due to noise. Staff professional but did not find them overly friendly. There is a Asian Restaurant attached. Food is so-so but very overpriced. In the morning a continental breakfast is laid out and that was nice as there was always a nice fresh assortment of breads. All things considered I would not choose to stay there again due to price/value ratio and lack of sleep.

Room Tip: Ask for room facing the courtyard and on the highest floor possible.

We travelled in October so it was not so cold, however since we are from Orange County, CA we thought it was a little too chilly. But we enjoyed the beauty of the city,
The location of the hotel is in the center of the city and very close to the great shopping district (Bahnhofstrasse). When we arrived at the airport we took the train to the city and walked a short distance to the hotel. The architecture was wonderful, and Lake Zurich was very nice and relaxing. We were fortunate enough to meet the relatives of a friend from California, and they were so nice to give us some mini tours of castles and the Alps. The hotel was nice and fairly standard for most rooms in Europe. We have traveled in Spain and Italy and the hotel was about what we expected for the price.

I have been staying in this hotel now for some time while doing business in Zurich. The location could not be better, 5 min from the main train station and 20 feet from the most prestigious shopping in Zurich.

Breakfast is very good and the rooms are comfortable as well. I can highly suggest this hotel!

Room Tip: Ask when booking, otherwise when you arrive. There are often choices for a room. Unfortunately they...

Yes, the irresistible pro is the location. right in the center of town. 10 minutes slow walk to the lake, 5 to old city, 5 to the main train station, 2 to the main fancy shopping street and right across from all the big department stores.
its old-fashioned in style, which was nice - the staff very friendly like a family-run establishment... and somewhat restrained in its decor - no pictures in the room or corridors, simple and "plain design".
BUT - the room was big and spacious unlike European standards. it was very clean, our room (316) was quiet and peaceful. the room was well heated (we slept with the window open for fresh air and it was lovely), bathroom was clean. bath duck in bathroom and chocolate ducks on the pillows (first night only!) made a nice souvenirs to take home for the kids. breakfast was lovely. good choice of fine food.
CONS? elevator was tiny and old (but gave us no problem). no free wifi in rooms (the option is quite expensive, 15 CHF per 3 hours), there were two computers in the lobby available for guests (but little to none privacy). the towels were thin and small. toiletries provided did not include lotion and conditioner and those supplied (shower gel and shampoo) were not renewed. nor were the coffee-sugar-sweetener.
but all of the above can be easily corrected by approaching the front desk.
maybe our maid had a bad day.
TV is poor and mostly payed for, though we didn't care much about TV.
all in all it was a very good experience. we will definitely come back.

Room Tip: third floor back was quiet. we stayed in 316, a spacious lovely double. do point out the kind of bed...

Located strategically just off the highly popular Bahnofstrasse, Seidenoff is a five-minute tram / bus ride from the station. One couldn’t ask for a better location, especially if you want to be doing a lot of shopping. Its proximity to Bahnofstrasse makes the process of dumping shopping bags in the room easier! (Trust me, you’ll need to.) It is also a short walk from the hotel to Lindenhof, a little hill that once housed a Roman fort.

Unfortunately we had a street-facing room on the first floor, which could get a little noisy, but wasn’t much of a problem. The hotel staff was helpful, even calling a taxi for us at an early hour of the morning. It was also one of the few hotels we stayed at in Switzerland that had air-conditioning. Air-conditioning in Switzerland? Yes, you’ll need it in May. The room also had a lovely coffee machine and we were most thrilled to make use of it!

We had dinner at the Asian restaurant ‘Mishio’, which is a pleasant courtyard restaurant. Breakfast was served in the dining area adjoining Mishio. In all, Seidenoff scores high due to its location and the fact that the staff made it all seem so easy.
