A meeting place.
An oasis of well-being
in the city.
Welcome to the Alma Hotel – your temporary home away from home.
Our art nouveau villa has been here in Seefeld for over 100 years – for more than 20 years under the name LADYs FIRST, and now freshly renovated as the Alma Hotel. Your temporary home away from home. What are we passionate about? Our hotel operates sustainably and socially. Serves regional, fair-trade food. Creates spaces beyond its 16 rooms and two apartments. You can cook your own soup in our communal kitchen. Women can relax in the ladies-only wellness area. Read a book above the rooftops of Zurich. Relax and enjoy a cappuccino or an aperitif while watching the world go by on Mainaustrasse. Sit outside in the rose garden or meet inside in the Salon Rosengarten.
The Alma is a city hotel in an elegant Jugendstil villa with spacious, nicely furnished rooms and views of the beautiful city buildings nearby, or the wildly romantic rose garden in the inner courtyard. The high-quality box spring beds are perfect for a deep and restful night’s sleep.
Time to relax! The popular ladies-only wellness area renowned throughout the city is still open to women who are not staying at the hotel but looking for a little relaxation. A relaxing wellness massage or a powerful, energising sports massage can be booked in advance. During the summer months, yoga classes are also held regularly on our beautiful roof terrace.
Wondering how we ensure social, environmental and economic sustainability at the Alma? Our social integration measures create jobs for women with disabilities. For breakfast, we serve regional, organic and fair trade products. And we’ve deliberately opted to go without certain things. Curious to learn more?
Events in the Salon Rosengarten
Our Salon Rosengarten is private and inviting. Those not staying at the hotel can also rent the space. It’s perfect for organising family celebrations. The salon is suitable for meetings, small lectures or workshops, private dinners, press conferences or coaching for up to eight people. On request, we can also provide you with a presentation screen. And, as the name suggests, the room’s window opens out to our beautiful rose garden.
Pricing for room rental:
CHF 70.- / per hour
CHF 60.- / per hour from 4h
Coffee, tea and water are included – catering is available on request.
Our Feel-Good Areas
Right in the middle of the city and yet nice and quiet
For us, balance isn’t just a trend, it’s a requirement. With its many feel-good areas, the Alma Hotel offers a variety of places for you to retreat to and have a natter – what do you fancy doing?
Venture down the well-trodden stone steps right behind the hotel to visit this little oasis in the city. Or carry on to the castle gardens.
In the summer, the fragrant scent of the queen of flowers pervades here, while an overgrown arbour shields you from everyday noise.
Peace in the city…
Anyone familiar with the Alma Hotel of the past will immediately notice that the building has been given a new facelift and now looks out onto Mainaustrasse with open eyes. The new wooden veranda gives the hotel a spacious entrance and another place for guests to enjoy breakfast, coffee or an aperitif. And it’s sure to get you in the mood for a leisurely stroll.
Enjoy a glass of prosecco over the rooftops of Zurich and gaze out over the city, lake and mountains. The terrace is furnished with seating areas and loungers and decorated lovingly with greenery. Visitors to the wellness area will find a ladies-only area. The large pergola provides shade in the height of summer. Chin-chin!
Lobby with Guest Kitchen and Honesty Bar
The lobby functions as a living room for our guests. Guests can and should occupy almost the entire mezzanine floor, whether for breakfast, a cappuccino after a stroll through the city or for a homemade dinner with the family, all prepared in the fully equipped kitchen, which we open to all Alma guests between 11 am and 10 pm.
At the honesty bar we provide Zurich water, tea and coffee free of charge at any time. Why not also fill up a glass with soft drinks from local producers, organic and sparkling wines or with selected spirits? We don’t have the classic minibar and we’re sure that nobody will miss it with this range on offer to you.
