“Great location and nice rooms”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 December 2013 via mobile

I stayed here for a week on business. The location is ideal. A two minute walk to the lake, and about five minutes from the Stadelhofen station and Bellevue tram stop. There is a supermarket in the Stadelhofen station too.

My room was small but comfortable, modern furnishings and clean. Double bed, decent sized bathroom with a good shower, desk, tv and fridge. The minibar in the room is free, with beer, coke, and a couple of snacks. Wifi was also free. The room had a balcony too. There was building work in the courtyard but I couldn't hear it with the window closed, and there was no noise while I was sleeping.

Breakfast was lovely, continental style with croissants, cheese, meat etc. On arriving for breakfast you are asked what drink you'd like. The staff are very friendly and helpful. I would stay here again.

Stayed August 2013, travelled on business

Stayed at the Seehof for 4 night first week of December. Our check in went as expected, since we arrived before noon. So we went for lunch and then back to to get our key. Our room was on the 4th floor (Room 402) facing the back of the hotel. We had no noise for all 4 nights. The room was much bigger than I expected. The breakfast was again more than I expected. We had eggs/bacon/ham plus all the fixing each morning. Service was prompt. The other bonus, free mini bar in your room. Never had that before. The front desk staff was very helpful with recomendation on restaurants and directions. If you are traveling via train from the airport get off at the Stradelhof station, 1 past the main Zurich HB station. Then you have a 6 minute walk to the hotel, and I mean 6 minutes with your luggage. The only draw back and they are making the change, for English speaking guests, there is no English TV Channel, so no CNN or BBC, however they say those changes are coming in January 2014. So in ending, great location, great room(4th floor back), excellent breakfast and very friendly and helpful front desk staff. I would go again.

Room Tip: If after reading other reviews you are concerned about noise, ask for room 402 you will not be dissa...

We stayed at the Seehof for a few days in late November. We found the hotel to be conveniently located and the staff exceptional. The room was basic with simply a bed and a clean bathroom. We ended up switching rooms due to a problem with the TV and the vent in the bathroom. This was handled quickly and efficently. The second room had a shower rather than a tub which was more convenient for us as the tub was a bit awkward to get into and out of. The complimentary mini bar was basically a few drinks and snacks but came in handy. Breakfast was included in our rate and we found it filling--good scrambled eggs and bacon with breads, cheeses, meats yogurts and great coffee. The staff was very helpful in booking tours, making dinner reservations and giving directions. If you want luxury stay elsewhere but if you want a convenient location and helpful personnel this hotel is for you. We liked the complimentary wifi and enjoyed the short walk to Old Town and the train and overall had a comfortable stay. We would stay here again if we are in Zurich.

Stayed at the Hotel Seehof for a single night in November. Arrived late and left early but the service was good, at check in and checkout, answered questions re transport and local dining and was very positive! Rooms are simple but good, nothing really missing and the breakfast was nice. Dined at a nearby restaurant and had a very pleasant evening.

Although the staff was excellent and the breakfast perfect ( the European meat and cheese breakfast with eggs and bacon on the side), the noise from the street was too much. Reading the reviews I knew there was some noise so I contacted the hotel to put us in the quietest room. This was the top floor street facing since the rear garden had construction happening,but it didn't matter. We could not sleep through the night as there was a club nearby with drunk people leaving til 4 am. Even being mid October, it was unseasonably warm so we needed to have the windows open for some air...big mistake. For a restful night's sleep I would suggest another hotel.

Room was clean and comfortable, service was good, location was central and it was easy to get around, and the breakfasts were good. The main reason I would hesitate to stay here again was the noise from outside. Never heard a thing from any of the other guest rooms, but our room was on the second floor facing the street and there were a lot of loud people out in the street very late at night. Although it was early October, our room seemed uncomfortably warm and we really needed to at least crack the windows, and even though we wear earplugs we were woken by the noise every single night. Also heard loud noises outside early in the morning - not sure what it was (construction?) but it was quite a racket on some mornings.

I hate to give it such a low rating, but the noise was a big issue for us. The Zurich Film Festival was going on while we were there, and I don't know if that was why there were so many loud people out late in this neighborhood - perhaps it's normally quieter. I doubt we will try it again, though. :( Also note that there is no AC and we were too hot in October - seems like it would be miserable in warmer months.

Room Tip: Rooms on upper floors or that don't face the street might be quieter.

We are terribly sorry you did not enjoy your stay in our hotel.
Usually the street is pretty calm especially for this central location. But just for your information: the outside constructions in the courtyard from the building opposite the hotel are finished.

Das Zimmer ist kahl; nichts gemütliches!
Very basic - not a room to enjoy spending any time in .
Nachts sehr laut und unbequemes Bett - very loud during night and uncomfy bed.
Frühstück nichts Besonderes; breakfast - average.
Gute Lage ; good location.

Just for your information; the outside constructions in the courtyard from the building opposite the hotel are finished. And another good news coming January we will change all beds in the hotel.
Maybe you give us a chance to prove that we can do better.
