5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

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

I stayed in the Dolder for a working week. I cannot complain about anything. Very attentive staff, very spacious room, huge with all what you need in them! I used swimming pool and sauna and they were up to a good standard. Breakfast and dinner were good too. I have been to a number of 4 stars hotels and this... More

I stayed here during October 2012 and therefore cannot comment on issues that might have arisen since my visit. When I stayed I found the place wholly welcome with everything you would expect for the price charged.

The staff was SUPER helpful - my husband and I arrived earlier than expected, and they were able to get our room ready within an hour. They also helped us a lot with recommendations and the questions we had about the surrounding area. It was our anniversary so they made it extremely special with some nice touches in the room....

If you are looking for a large apartment as part of a hotel complex with superior service, pool and great food then this is it. We have a 5 month old baby and wanted a bigger space with kitchen and lounge area at a reasonable price (for zurich anyway!) Although the rooms are dated they are spotlessly clean and the... More

The Dolder Waldhaus is the cheaper sister hotel to the Dolder Grand but is not anywhere near in the same league. We stayed there when attending an event at the Grand. It was built in 1975 and has had some refurbishment but is now due for a rebuild in 2016. So the rooms are very large but dated and plain.... More

Stayed here as a cheaper alternative to the Dolder Grand up the road (for a work conference there) Nice hotel, rooms were a little tired and 70s looking, but it was very clean and the most amazing thing was the view from the balcony. Absolutely stunning
