Sorell Hotel Seefeld
Ranked #63 of 138 Hotels in Zurich
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 December 2009

As someone else already pointed out, the hotel is modern and tastefully decorated and therefore a departure from your typical (old style) swiss hotel.
My husband and I stayed overnight since we wanted to enjoy ourselves (theater, dinner & disco) and didn't want to drive back to Berne being tired.
First, it's located outside the town, so its' pretty quiet even though it is on a main street and our room faced said street.
The decor was really good, quality and taste went into it and also practicallity. The bathroom was all white and spotless, flat screen TV, really confortable bed (I usually can't sleep well in hotels), and especially important, since this seems to be a pattern in most swiss hotels, it was not suffocatingly hot. Our room came with a small balcony, too, which says a lot. If you've stayed in a few hotels in Switzerland, you'll know this is a rarity.
Breakfast was good, until 13.00 hs (in many other hotels it's until 10/10.30 hs).
The bar was also nice and had a nice vibe on the Friday evening we were there.
All in all, I'd highly recommend this place if you are looking for an affordable place but you favor modern and minimalistic instead of heavy curtains and drapery.
Oh, and it's located a short walk from Zurich lake.

This is a clean boutique-style hotel in a really nice area of Zurich, just a few minutes walk from the lake. The area is full of life, with restaurants and shops, but also quiet. The rooms are clean and well finished. My only complaint--and a big one--is that the dense cigarette smoke from the bar/restaurant drifts up the stairway and permeates the halls on all floors--even the fitness center on the top floor, which sort of defeats the purpose of working out... I travel a lot, and this is something I rarely experience any more in most hotels.

Zurich is a beautiful city with breathtaking architecture in every corner, lovely people and a clean lake you can swim in alongside swans and ducks. Sorell Hotel Seefeld is a five minute walk from the lake and the promenade that is million times better than the Southbank. You can go for a run alongside the lake and once you're done, you can just jump into the lake. The hotel has its own gym on the top floor, which although basic, has a treadmill, a rowing machine, swiss balls and weights. It's perfect. Dont forget to ask reception for the strap that makes the treadmill work.
The staff are all very friendly, especially Saskia, Daniella and Susanne. In fact all reception staff are very helpful. We booked directly through the hotel and although their rates are not the cheapest, i would probably stay at the same hotel again.
The breakfast is good, albeit slightly basic, but there's enough there to fill you up for a few hours.
Surprisingly, smoking is still legal indoors in zurich, but reception told us the ban is coming in in sept/oct 2009, which is great.
The hotel is easily accesible from the airport. The train to the centre of the city takes 20 mins and then it's either a 5 minute tram ride away or a 10 minute walk.
All in all, it was a great hotel in a perfect location to explore Zurich and its attractions, including the zoo.

Hotel is well located and only take 10m from main station.
Received a room upgrade which was very nice and large room, minimalist style. Very clean & comfortable. Location could be noisy at busy times of year but generally very good. Breakfast limited but satisfactory - Service and value for money good.
Would recommend for a weekend stay and Zurich is a very easy city to wander.

We stayed at the Seefeld Hotel for two nights in August. Tram 4 stops very close direct from Zurich Hbf. We had a double bedroom on the top floor with a small balcony overlooking a side street. The room was of a good size with a comfortable bed, good wardrobe space and an excellent en-suite shower room. Everything was spotlessly clean. There is no restaurant in the hotel but there is a bar where you can buy snacks/drinks and where you have breakfast. The breakfast buffet was very good with fruit juices, cereals, fresh fruit rolls coffee/tea etc. There is a
free internet terminal in the reception area. The staff were very knowledgeable about Zurich and were very pleasant and helpful. Next door there is an asian restaurant (Tiffins) which does excellent Thai/Chinese cuisine in a modern setting. There was also a very good Italian restaurant nearby (Latino). Zurich is very clean and public transport is excellent. Buy a 'Zurich Card' at the airport (or tourist office) which gives unlimited travel on trains, trams and buses for either 24 or 72 hours plus a trip on the lake and other discounts! Visit the excellent Zoo if you have time (tram 6) and the botanical gardens (free).

The Highs
This hotel is in a great position. The excelent tram system is right there (try it!) and there is plenty of access to shops, restaurants and sights. The hotel is modern and clean and the staff try hard. The rooms have most of what you could possibly want.
The Lows
If you are on business and want a single room they are TINY. A single bed pressed up against the wall. The duvet is smaller than the bed and the one pillow is like a biscuit. The solitary chair is made of hard wood and does not even have a cushion on it.
The mediums
The public areas are adequate but sparse/minimalist.
The breakfast is a dieters delight but will leave many hungry.
