“Everything we needed!”
Reviewed 9 November 2011

We travelled to Zurich as part of a European tour with our 2 children, aged 11 and 13. We were very happy with the family room we booked. It wasn't anything fancy, but it was clean, modern, and big enough for the 4 of us. We also appreciated having this option, as booking 2 rooms would have cost literally twice as much!
I was also very happy with Denise, the receptionist. When I'd booked the room, it was advertised as a "triple" so I requested an extra bed. She wrote to say that it was in fact a "quadruple" (fold-out sofa for the kids), so we wouldn't need the extra bed (thus saving us $). I don't know if this error is one of the hotel's or of the booking site (I think I used Booking.com for it), but I was pleased that she'd picked up on it.
Denise was also great in making us feel welcome and helping us with whatever we needed (e.g. maps and brochures, booking us tour tickets, providing day tram passes, etc.).
We were also very happy with the location. There are lots of shops and restaurants right around the corner and as has already been mentioned, Lake Zurich is also close by.
We were happy to have parking provided as well, even if it was for a fee (which is standard at most hotels).
Finally, if you're expecting a 5-star hotel, you'll be disappointed because it's not. But it is a very nice, affordable hotel in a good location (same location as 4-5 star hotels, incidentally) with very good service. You won't be disappointed!

We had the pleasure of discovering at this hotel on our recent trip to Zurich. It is located in a quiet location near the lake and opera. But, close enough to the heart of the city that we walked everywhere. Our room was lovely, clean and easily accommodated our family of three. The hotel receptionist spoke perfect English which was a huge help and she was able to direct us to the best sightseeing streets and attractions. Delicious restaurant inside the hotel with a very nice selection of wines and wonderful service. Breakfast was a traditional European style with meats, cheeses, breads, and yogurts. Overall our experience was exceptional and highly recommend the Seehof.

Room Tip: If you are traveling with more than 2 people, you should be sure to ask for a room that can accommod...

Stayed one night at the Seehof, and the location is awesome. Just 1 street removed from the lake downtown Zurich.

The hotel is very basic, but everything works and rooms are nice and clean.

My partner & I spent 3 nights in Hotel Seehof last week and I have to say we were not disappointed. The location of the hotel was ideal for us. Just one street away from Lake Zurich an the Opera House, connecting train station to the main train station (very useful when carrying luggage !) but also if you wanted to walk up to the main central area, it was only about a 20 minute walk.

The check in was very efficient and the staff were very friendly & welcoming. Breakfast was what you would expect in most hotels but was very well presented and plenty of choice. Scrambled eggs were excellent - didn't like the bacon but that is just because I don't like that particular type. Plently of fruit juice, cereals, cheeses (of course !) and cold meats as well as yoghurts and fresh fruit.

The room was spacious enough as was the bathroom. A lovely and unexpected touch was the complimentary dressing gowns to use as well as bath slippers individual for each customer.

We didn't try the evening meal so could not comment on that.

There is a lot of building work taking place literally next door to the hotel, however the work is restricted to certain times which the hotel requested on behalf of their guests and we were not disturbed at all.

Two small things - and I do mean very small. The travel instructions from the hotel although very good missed one main aspect which is when you alight at Stadelhofen train station, go down the square towards the main road and from there turn left - hotel is next street on right. We didn't have part of these instructions and as a result, spent 30 minutes going in the wrong direction :( The other thing is in fact something which doesn't seem so typical in many european hotels, but a small guest tray in the room would be nice just for a cup of tea / coffee in the late evening.

All in all though, a lovely albeit small hotel, well situated and the staff were very friendly. If we ever return to Zurich again, I know where we will stay !

Dear guest!

We thank you very much for the good and detailed comment on Tripadvisor! Mentioning the friendliness or our staff is always a pleasure to us! We already offer free Minibar and also dressing gowns to our guests which the clients really appreciate and which is more the client expect in a 3-star Hotel, a tray with coffee and tea making facilities is normally provided in a 4-star Hotel rather than in a 3-star. To update the instructions on how to get to our Hotel from the Stadelhofen station on our website seems a very good idea to us! We thank you very much that you are helping us to improve our service. We are looking forward to your next visit! Best regards your Seehof-Team

Despite the rather small rooms, this charming hotel in a great location (near opera house, lake and trainstation) offers a personal twist due to special attention paid by staff and particularly at the reception. The restaurant is far from typical business food either - albeit a bit pricy. Nice place with even free Wifi and mini bar - when will the construction work in the backyard be done?

We thank you very much for your good feedback we very much appreciate it! We are very happy that you enjoyed the personal ambiance in our Hotel. Unfortunately the construction of the National Bank next door will continue until September 2012. We hope that you will come back soon again despite the noise. Best regards your Seehof-Team

stayed at the hotel for several sessions prior to moving to Zurich: the hotel is very small, yet it has everything that you need to get sleep and food. The rooms are extremely well kept, try to book a higher floor since the rooms towards the inner court can have some slight noise from the restaurant below. Breakfast is simple yet very good, food during the day is very sought after by local business people and some dishes are way above hotel average. Free fast Internet is a good plus (Wifi). Parking 15 CHF/night.
