I was not expecting much as a 3 star was posted on this one, but I enjoyed the stay. The friendliness and availability of hotel staff was something that impressed me, and I am somebody who travel a lot. So congratulation to whoever made it possible.

The hotel is very close to metro, tram and Old City. The reception staff are super, especially Lisa. They were very attentive to our needs and helped w ideas of places to visit and how to get there. Latina and Sina, were also helpful. Great breakfast and staff of bar area were great. Like the welcome email and the other I received upon departure.

Good service from the personnel. A few problems with the room (fridge did not work and was not repaired or replaced, soap forgotten by maid). Decent breakfast and good service in the restaurant. Good wi-fi service.

No sleep in Zurich

2 out of 5
Posted Sep 12, 2014
Pros: The breakfast included with the stay was nice.
Cons: Get air conditioning for the warm days. Ensure the staff enjoys working with the public.
Location: It was a 10 minute tram ride to the center of town, so that was fine.
It was September and the weather was warm. My room was on the 2nd floor and since the hotel has no air conditioning, I had to attempt to sleep with the windows open. One building away from the hotel is a restaurant and since I was on the 2nd floor, it sounded like I was sleeping in the middle of the kitchen floor! The warmth of the room coupled with the noise ensured I slept very little. I've traveled the world and this was probably one of the worst stays I've had. On my second day I tried to arrange for a couple of tours. The hotel employee who helped me seemed bothered that I was asking her to do so. Not only was she unfamiliar with how to do the tours, but when I asked questions, she frustratingly grabbed paper and pen to obtain the answers from the tour operators.

Good location for walking into centre

4 out of 5
Posted Aug 20, 2014
Pros: The location for the price we paid
Cons: Comfort of the beds and larger, thicker towels.
Location: Very close to the lake and you can walk into the old town with plenty of restuarants. Try Zeughauskeller in the old town for good traditional food.
This hotel is in a good location and you can walk to many areas of the city. There are also tram stops nearby. Breakfast had a reasonable choice and the hotel was clean. However, the pillows are very thin and lumpy and the beds quite hard, so if softer beds are important to you don't stay here. Also note that this hotel does not have air conditioning, but their own air cooling system which was not as efficient as A/C so room was a little hot at night.

Very nice, affordable hotel, conveniently located

5 out of 5

Posted May 19, 2014
Pros: Its cleanliness and location.
Location: It is conveniently located to downtown. Restaurants all around, the opera house about a half mile away near the train station and late night clubs
I had an excellent stay at the Hotel Seefeld. I decided to cab to the hotel after arriving early in the morning on an overnight flight from the US -- about 65 Swiss Francs (about $70). The staff who greeted me told me that it would be easier to take the train back to the airport (take the S16 to Stadelhoffen and then walk or take the tram about .5 miles down Seefeld Street), and it would cost about ($7). The staff also immediately set me up with an available room, so I could get a nap. This is not a luxury hotel, i.e., no one running to grab your bags and carry them for you and then expecting a tip, but it is a nice hotel. The lobby is right next to the front door, as is the bar, where you eat breakfast. My room was very modern, and the only downside was the bed, which was comfortable, but consisted of two mattresses next to each other -- it would not be ideal for romance. Being required to insert your door key into a wall slot to operate the lights also takes some getting used to, but at least it made it difficult to lose your room key when you were in your room. Breakfast was included in the price we paid, and it was good -- a buffet that included scrambled eggs, yogurt, cheese, some sandwich meet, breads, juices, coffee/tea, and croissants. Once I was settled into the hotel, downtown was a short walk/tram away, and there were many great restaurants nearby. Overall an excellent experience while on a business trip.
