Cranky service in an outdated hotel May 19, 2010
In search of a fair priced hotel near Zurich, I ended up in Hotel Landhus in Seebach, a suburb of Switzerland's largest city. Booking the hotel was easy enough, but actually finding the hotel wasn't easy at all. We drove by it several times without noticing it behind a shield of green trees.
During our entire stay and despite her Italian ancestry, the proprietress comes across as cranky. No service with a smile here. Even though she had seen me come up to the desk, I had to wait for quite some time at the check-in desk before she even acknowledged my presence.
The hotel, built in the 1960's, has many original features. Unfortunately, management does not use that to their (and thus my) advantage. Both the reception area and the tiny rooms are outdated rather than nice retro. The furniture in the room is standard and bland, the bed too small for my 6.5ft. Yet, all the bare necessities are there. LAN Internet access was available in my room. Apparently the hotel has an outdoor pool, but I couldn't find it anywhere. I did find the bowling alley, but all the lanes were booked, so I can't tell you if they're any good.
The restaurant is the only up-to-date part of the hotel, but I didn't sample their cuisine. Breakfast was fine, served in a conservatory. With the sun out, it felt more like a hot-house and I had to wear my sunglasses the whole time. A few yards of linen would have done wonders for the place.
On a more positive note: Parking is free and the hotel is conveniently located at the end of tram-line 14 that took us to Zurich centre in 20 minutes. Little noise came from the tram stop. The overhead passing planes on their way to nearby Zurich Airport, didn't bother us too much either.
I wouldn't recommend this place for tourists, but if you're on business and need a reasonably priced room within reach of both the airport and the city centre, this is your place.
