“Good location”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

We stayed here four nights. Our room was in the front with a nice balcony. The balcony was a real advantage as the Seefest celebrations included fireworks and we could enjoy them from that vantage place. The hotel front, however, was quite close to the rail line, but we soon adjusted to the sounds of the trains going and coming. Breakfast was good and varied. We appreciated being able to eat evening meals in the hotel as during the festival it was less crowded than other places. WIFI was only reliable in the lobby.

My only criticisms include a really awful odor near the third floor elevator, and the fact that the floor around the elevator and the stairs needed a good cleaning.

Room Tip: If you need a quiet sleep, you should request a room away from the rail tracks.

We stayed for 1 night at the Seehof and had a 3rd floor room looking over the lake. The room was small but adequate. Parking was available behind the hotel. The receptionist spoke excellent English and was very helpful. The breakfast was good. There is a rail line between the hotel and the lake but the noise of trains did not bother us too much. The internet wifi coverage was patchy.

Excellent value for money! The staff was very friendly and helpful. We came by car and the hotel has it's own parking spots right in front of the hotel. The room was very clean and cozy and we had a balcony faced towards the lake! We also enjoyed the breakfast buffet :)

I was at Seehof Hotel in May 2014 for 3 Nights. The hotel located very near to the Lake Zell, just few steps walking and the train station is nearby just 5 min. away. The Hotel's staff were very nett , respectful and always helpful.
The Room size is a little small with balcony facing the Lake and sitting there is a wonderful feeling and enjoyable. Bathroom is clean and room-service every day.
The Internet is free and its speed is very good even for streaming online. There are free car-parks for the hotel guests which is around enough for 11 cars.

My recommendation is always to take the room with the balcony lake-view and travel with a car as there are many activities to be done in other areas near Zell Am See such as:
@ Zell Am See = Schmittenhöhe - small and large Boat Trips
@ Kaprun = Kitzsteinhorn - Gipfelwelt 3000 - Alpin Coaster Maisiflitzer - Maisiflitzer Telefrik - Tauern Spa
@ Krimml = Krimml Waterfalls
@ Saalfelden = Summer Toboggan Run ( Sommerrodeln )
@ Leogang = Flying for XXL - Open Air Go-Cart
@ Werfen = Ice Cave ( The largest in Europa ) - Liechtenstein Gorge

I would come the Hotel again for sure next time ;)

Room Tip: Room with Balcony facing the lake ist the best choice here with a lille disadvantage which is the th...

We only booked 1 night here as we were on our way from Innsbruck to Gmund and needed a place to overnight. It was an excellent choice. Our room was on the 3rd floor (#36) with a large balcony overlooking the lake. The room was very nice and the view to the lake excellent. Staff were very friendly. Breakfast was very good too. Lots of parking on hotel property.

Be aware : old, noisy and small. Terrible nightmare.
It was a complete deception. We expected to find a place to rest a night and what did we find? The room ís very small and there is no blackout. The room was full of light at 5 AM. The floor is made of wood and the building seems to have more than 200 years. So you hear every sound specially from higher floors and corridors. It seems that there is no walls! Depending upon who are the other guests it can be a nightmare.
Wifí or internet doesn't work properly as promised so they give you an amplifier to try to get the signal. Even when you get it badly after hours you will see that Youtube is blocked for instance.
What a shame! Plan better your travel!
Consider stay ín other hotel in order to get the minimum what you could expect. If not, you run the risk to pay a lot for a box of about 10 to 12 square meters and loose a night of your life asking yourself why you did this wrong choice due 10 or 15 euros.

The staff and food in this hotel is outstanding. Even when compared with restaurants it is faultless. The only thing is that it is close to the railway line and the complimentary earplugs are definitely required but the hotel can't be held responsible for that. Essentially highly recommended.
