The Space

Hey, welcome to my place! Here's what you can expect:

- wonderful and spacious living room in my apartment (see photo, for 1 person) - For sleeping, you can use either the couch or a mattress (just got a mattress [not an entire bed] since April),
- the room has a table for working, eating or reading.
- apartment is centrally located in upscale Seefeld area, very safe
- 2min to lake, 4min to city center of Zurich (bellevue), 30 seconds to public transportation (tram) and supermarkets,
- 3 min by tram to the next train station.
- free use of furniture, kitchen, dishwasher, WiFi
- this central location saves you time and money when getting around. No hills to walk up since it's right by the lake

This is a simple room without a closet or anything fancy, for simple travellers :-)

Smokers: I'd kindly ask you to smoke outside of the apartment, not on the balconies.

The room can be rented for short stays. I'd also be happy to help with arrangements or giving recommendations for activities.

If you are interested or have any questions, please feel free to contact me. May I kindly ask you to bring your own towel, please. If you really need a towel feel free to let me know.

Info: Switzerland has a different electricity plug than most European countries, please be aware of that in case you need to charge your device.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • I enjoyed this place. Check-in was smooth,the host's roommate met me and explained the apt basics. The place was calm and quiet,I had a good sleep every night. I didn't know what to expect since the room looked more like a living room in the picture,but it was very comfortable. A matress is put on top of a sofa. It feels just like a bed in the end. I also liked the big table and the room itself is rather large. Good place to stay.

  • Tommy ist ein netter Gastgeber, persönlich kann ich ihn weiterempfehlen.
    Die Lage der Wohnung ist verkehrsgünstig und sehr nah am herrlichen See.

    Aber leider gibt es statt Bett nur eine Matratze, die man sich selbst irgendwo in Tommys Wohnzimmer legen muss. Die Decke ist zu kurz und die Kissen des Sofas sind dann die Nachtkopfkissen.
    Es gibt weitere Mitbewohner, von denen ich vorher nichts wusste, denen man vielleicht zufällig irgendwann im Flur begegnet. Dementsprechend unruhig geht es zu.
    Man kann das Zimmer nicht verdunkeln, vielleicht weil man ja auch kein Nachtlicht hat ;)
    Habt keine Löcher in den Socken, denn Schuhe ausziehen an der Wohnungstür ist heilig!

    Ein- und Aus-Checken war easy, weil Tommy viel in der Wohnung ist.

    Response from Tommy:

    Danke für deinen Review. Dass es nur eine Matratze ist, steht ja im Listing (!).
    Bgzl. dem Lärm am Morgen tut es mir leid, normalerweise ist fast niemand zuhause.
    Das Zimmer kann man übrigens verdunkeln.

  • I booked the room on the morning of my stay. Tommy was very responsive. Tommy is welcoming, friendly and interesting to speak with. We had a cool chat about entrepreneurship and his different health-oriented ventures. The bed was comfortable.
