We stayed two nights at the Dolder Waldhaus and we enjoyed the stay tremendously. The building is quite unspectacular, a testimony to the 70's architecture. We were told that the building will be replaced in 2016. But once inside, the reception is extremely friendly, genuine and professional. We were upgraded to a suite from a luxury room and the space... More

The Dolder Waldhaus is the poorer cousin of the Dolder Grand but shares its great location on a small mountain overlooking Zurich and the lake. Lake view rooms are a must.

I stayed one night in this hotel. Honestly, it does not look nice from the outside. However, the personal was very helpful. The room was clean and convenient for a short stay and the view on ZH and the lake is a plus. The breakfast was ok but could be better for a 4 stars hotel... What I really did... More

This hotel positions itself as the sister hotel to the Dolder Grand. I stayed for one night in November and the hotel was fairly quiet. This might have something to do with its location. If you are after easy access into the city centre and old town then this probably isn't the hotel for you. However this hotel does provide... More

Beware inflated reviews. One below here says "a little older design…" The place is *dreadful*. For the price there's simply no excuse. It's awful, dirty, old concrete towers thankfully perched high above the city. The furniture is as outdated as the building, walls paper thin. I can't imagine what other reviewers are thinking, even though Switzerland is expensive and you... More
