I was at the Seerose for a two-day seminar. The location is nice and quite, the staff is helpful, and the breakfast was very good.
The place is as clean as you wold expect for a five-star hotel. You may or may not like the stile of the interior. They tried hard to interface modern with classic, not always successfully, though.
My room (113) was a sheer let-down. Finding the light switches and operating the water tap was a bit of an IQ test. The bed was hard and uncomfortable, and I woke up early unable to fall asleep again. The desk was unpractical. Again it was hard to find the power plug, and the desk-light (also used as bedside light) works best if you are left-handed. Again, the (modern) stile of the room is debatable. I didn't like the (fake) tropical-looking wood.
Unfortunately our dinner was at the Thai Restaurant, which is only slightly better than average. Me and my colleagues felt that the rice was dry and hard (al dente, if we were talking pasta). The wine served (Amarone) with the food was a mismatch (I don't know whose idea it was, though). The background Thai music was a nuisance,
Hotel Seerose pretends to be an "extraordinary desing hotel", a claim which is not fully sustantiated. Not even the five stars are fully appropriate. I will not be here again unless I have to.
