My family booked this hotel for 2 nights because of the good rating on the internet but we were somewhat disappointed. To be fair, this is a decent hotel and the room we got was clean and comfortable. But to me that is too be expected for a hotel of this price anyway. Perhaps because we didnt get a room... More

I just spent one night at this hotel because of a course I attended close by. The room was rather small, but ok for the 1 night I've spent there. Furniture, bed etc. was fine. Just the carpet looked a bit old and one could see that already many people where walking over it. Bathroom was fine, although I would... More

We arrived from the airport at 9:30am and the friendly staff had a room for us by 11. While it was only on the second floor, we still had a great view from our nice, small balcony. The room was very comfortable, and we had good sleep during our stay. One morning, we tried out the breakfast buffet and really... More

We visited the hotel with family. The hotel was a pleasant surprise. Away from city notice and a walk away from dolder tram station. The rooms are very spacious and have all facilities including a mini kitchnet. The staff is very polite and cooperative. The breakfast is good and one has a choice of eating it indoors or experience outdoors... More

Dolder Waldhaus was an amazing place to stay. Such a serene setting just outside the city centre. Very easy to get to by tram. The staff were so helpful with giving me directions and assisting with locating my luggage (that the airline lost!). Polite and approachable at all times. The room was nicely presented and there was water and fruit... More

By mistake my husband and I drove to the Dolder Grand so you can imagine the disappointment when we found the Dolder Waldhaus which does not outwardly present nearly as well!! However, any disappointment quickly dissolved when we were greeted by very friendly staff as we checked in. They couldn't have been more welcoming.... even congratulating us on our wedding... More

Spent 2 nights (May Day weekend)here. Hotel is up on a hill in a lovely area of Zurich, very green and quiet. I suppose it is almost the suburbs but I was so impressed with the public transport. They are so frequent even late at night. There is a funicular right next to the hotel which takes you down to... More

At first sight the old concreted facade is old fashioned and not at all attractive, even though the hotel is in a nice location. Inside is not so bad. The reception area is quite modern and the rooms are roomy and have small balconies. The door can be open so you get a nice breeze. So, if you get a... More

We stayed three nights in an apartment on the sixth floor with the most unbelievable views. The room was far more spacious than we expected with heaps of cupboard and wardrobe space, a great little kitchenette, good size bathroom and comfortable bed/s.
