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

Me and my girlfriend spent 3 night surronded by a stunnig atmosphere on the Zurich hills. The hotel is located in a lovely and calm zone, very close, at the same time, to the city centre. We stayed in a deluxe double room with a kitchenette and an amazing view over the Zurich lake. Definitely a place to be...

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. Cannot praise the staff at this hotel highly enough as all requests were met within a short space... More

We stayed at the Waldhaus Dolder for the second time since Christmas. Although the bed was too short for my 6'7" partner, we picked this hotel again for its short distance to our family's residence and downtown Zurich, its quiet location (forest, residential area), its free parking and spacious rooms overlooking city and lake.

Has all the basics. If you're looking for fancy, you won't find it here, but everything a few-days traveler may need is there, most importantly, the friendly staff. The hotel has a tram line a few steps away. It's located in a quiet area by the mountain, and overlooks the old city of Zurich
