Reviewed May 7, 2013

I stayed one night in May 2013. Arrived in the late evening. It's quite close to Zurich Hbf (Main Station) but if you have anything more than a carry bag, you'll need to take a taxi. It's a good 10-minute walk and lugging around heavy bags is not easy.

The entrance and the lobby are quite tiny, with only one door leading in. Another opens to the Asian restaurant. Check-in was fine and it was done quite quickly. The staff was quite fluent in English, so there was no trouble on that front. They were quite friendly and amiable.

The room was quite good. It was small without being cramped - making full use of the space available. The bed itself was really comfortable, so I have no complaints at all.

The breakfast buffet (also held in the Asian restaurant) was ok. Don't expect a massive selection, but whatever you want is there (bread, eggs, fruits, juices, etc).

Overall, a great little hotel with friendly service and all the amenities you could possibly need for a quick trip. As value for money, the Seidenhof is among the best. I highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing away from the main road (Sihlstrasse). There are a bunch of offices there that...

Stayed there for 4 nights during my business trip recently ! The staff, room cleanliness and hospitality are acceptable, dont expect any special treatment, thou' ...
It is bery close to Rail city train station that can lead you to different famous cities around switzerland - Basel, Lucerne even Paris. 10 minutes normal walk and you'll get there.
If you done with your daily task before 5 pm, stroll by the Limmat river ! Lots of interesting stores and bara along the small alley - brick pavement and old european style buildings - Love it !
Lots of non swiss food, too - if you are an asian. Found a good thai restaurant just across the river, a teppanyaki restaurant on the next block and also a korean fast food close to rail city station.
Overall, the hotel was average but the location is perfect for me. I'd go back there next year during my annual biz trip.

Just a plain good hotel. Nice room with everything you need. Good location and decent breakfast. On the other hand nothing special. But for Zurich probably good value for money. Room has airco and when on the street side that is needed because a lot of streetnoise if you open your window.

I start every review the same way; I'm travel for a living. I stay in over 150 different hotels a year. Everything from high end chains, to boutiques and everything in between. I have a good baseline for hotels and reasonable expectations.

There isn't much to say about this hotel. It's a decent budget hotel, clean with friendly staff. The rooms, beds, etc are ok. It's in a great location though, so it does have that working for it.

This hotel will fade into my memory, but I have no complaints for it.

Located just off of the main street in the middle of Zurich and a short walk from the station or the lake.
Tucked away behind its restaurant and bar; Mishio which serves excellent Asian food as well as doubling up as the breakfast restaurant. The Seidenhof is a good hotel with large rooms but they could do with a little more soundproofing. However they are well equipped and comfy.
A recent upgrade is good free wifi throughout the building.

Good things first: The location is great. The major shopping street is just behind the corner and the main railway station is only few minutes away. The staff was friendly. The room was clean and equipped with all the basic equipment, like tv, fridge, safe and water heater. Free wifi was available. The breakfast was a bit limited, but fortunately it consisted of everything I would choose from a wider choice, anyway.

Then the downsides: The room was quite small. In winter the air was surprisingly damp, perhaps due to lack of air circulation (indeed, in the bathroom I saw some spots that looked like mold). Soundproofing was minimal (you heard everything from the corridor) and in room 403 you heard noise from the elevator mechanism everytime the elevator was moving - not only when it stopped in your floor. In addition, the price of the hotel was surprisingly high...

With somehow lower room rates I could give this hotel four stars, but I'm not sure if you get enough value for your money here. Nice stay, though.

Room Tip: Room 403 is noisy because of the elevator.
