Alma Hotel.
New design.
Old values.

The new Alma Hotel is due to open in Zurich’s Seefeld quarter in spring 2022.

Originally launched under the name of LADYs FIRST, in the past decades the hotel has accommodated businesswomen and men, solo travellers, frequent travellers, the old and the young. In addition to the approach to social sustainability we’ve been cultivating for more than 20 years with our focus on social integration, we’ll also be aiming to set new standards in environmental sustainability.
New name, new design. Old values, filled with new content.


The stylish Alma Hotel will in future offer 16 individually furnished rooms, as well as two spacious apartments on the top floor.

A unique experience of space

The Alma is a city hotel with spacious rooms and furniture made from sustainable materials. Cosy wooden floors and harmonious colours and patterns all make the rooms a place to feel at home. An ideal choice for solo travellers, couples and families alike! Those wishing (or needing) to work can do so at the ergonomic desks – or move to the new, large lobby if they prefer. The windows offer a view of the beautiful city villas nearby, or the wildly romantic rose garden in the inner courtyard. The high-quality box spring beds are perfect for a deep and restful sleep, and the bathrooms are equipped with either a bathtub or shower.  

Time to Relax

Wellness for ladies only!
Immerse yourself above the rooftops of Zurich.

The lake view offers immediate relaxation from the inviting roof terrace above the women’s wellness area. You can also enjoy a moment of serenity in the steam bath, Finnish sauna or bio sauna, before stretching out on the large, warm and cosy cherry pit pillow.  


Enjoy some time out – alone or with friends!

New as of reopening: book and pay for your time out conveniently online. We want to make sure you have more time for relaxation.


A relaxing wellness massage or a powerful, energising sports massage? Our massage therapists will adapt the treatment to meet your needs. Massages can also be booked for men.


During the summer months, yoga classes are held regularly on the beautiful roof terrace. The Yogaklub teachers look forward to enjoying vinyasa with you.

Sustainability has always made sense to us. Ever since the beginning, social integration has been one of our priorities – our hotels offer a sheltered workplace for women experiencing difficult conditions. The integration team will continue to be responsible for housekeeping and breakfast.

We’ll be placing even greater emphasis on environmental sustainability, and we’ve already been taking approach in the renovation process. Our 20-year-old bathrooms – found to be in good condition and should remain in service for a few years yet. The new breakfast offer – regional, fair and, wherever possible, organic.

Profitable in the sense of economically sustainable for us is the renting of hotel rooms and the sale of offers in the wellness.
