- What's Included
I've been to other 3 stars hotel in Switzerland before and this one is the best so far. Service is good, always had a smiley and helpful staff at reception and restaurant, breakfast is way above the average for that type of hotels in Switzerland, food was good for other meals as well and very importantly the hotel is only a 5 minutes walk from the main train station. I stayed in a solo room for a business stay so room was a bit small (not surprisingly) but the main negative point was the bed which was not very comfortable.
Arrived midday from an overnight flight. Staff held bag while I walked around city. Room was very nice, clean and well appointed. Convenient to restaurants, sights, shopping and restaurants. One significant downside was the restaurant at the hotel. Menu was not very extensive and staff, including manager, were not interested in waiting on customers.
We spent 4 nights in Sorell Seidenhof. Stay was quite OK. Hotel has a perfect location – it is right in the middle of the city, everything is within walking distance.During booking process I was offered early check-in, which I booked. However, after our arrival at 11 a.m. the room was not ready and we were waiting till 1p.m. To be sincere, I must admit that we were offered something to drink in the meantime. On the other hand, on our departure day, we stayed in our room till 2 p.m. without additional costs.We had superior room for 3 adults. Size of the room was adequate. There was an air-conditioning, however we did not use it, due to rather cold weather in Zurich during our stay. Our room was on the 4th floor with courtyard view. Some say that courtyard view is better because such room is quieter than a room with street view. But in street view room you have some view. In our room we only saw the sky and the wall. In my opinion rooms were updated not long ago and are quite modern and clean. I cannot say this about bathroom, which was clean but a bit outdated. There is free TV in the room (just press TV on the remote control) but every day TV offers you access to pay TV. Wifi is good and free, also safe is free, but minibar is expensive.We were on B&B basis and I must say that breakfast, like coin, has 2 sides. On the positive one is the quality of products like ham, chesses, fruits, juices, tea, which are really superb. However, on the negative one, there are warm meals (scrambled eggs, bacon or sausages), which were cold or just a bit warm. There is also problem with tables in the breakfast room. About half of them are normal tables and another half are very high (bar) tables.Summing up, I would recommend that hotel.
Cons:The toilet had not been cleaned and black hairs in the shower. The room smelt of smoke even though it was a non smoking room. Noisy aircon, Bad quality bed linen. Pros: Nice staff and central location
The hotel is nice and the location is superb. I liked our room, it was spacious and the beds, pillows and blankets were so soft I would gladly give them a forever home here in Finland :) The hotel is kept clean but I think there might have been some mold in the bathroom, because it stank when we used the shower and the floor got wet. Not too bad anyway, but I recommend to check if you are severely allergic to mold. The room didn't smell though.Breakfast is adequate, you won't leave hungry and the breakfast room staff was very friendly. I think the hotel itself with the breakfast is worth 3,5 stars but the staff raises the ranking. I would specially like to thank mr. Paparis at the front desk for making us smile every time we talked with him. We got our room before the chek-in time and our bags were already in the room! We also got to lend umbrellas when it was raining and he gave us tips about where to go and how. He really brightened up our day :) Thank you, you are worth five stars!
