If staying in a hotel that was built in the 1800s and is located on top of a small mountain with a spectacular view of Zurich, the river, and all the surrounding towns interests you, than may I suggest that you put this hotel on your bucket list. The hotel location does not permit cars so that it can only... More

We only had one night in Zurich and we figured that wasn't enough time to properly see Zurich so we'd go for an experience instead. We got a free upgrade and had paid for a view and it was absolutely gorgeous. The bathroom was luxury! And obviously the view was lovely. We ate at the restaurant too. This cost the... More

If you have enough of time and love to discovery nice places, you have to visit the place, but be ready that its not so easy to reach it, because of its destination. You'll have to take a road trip to the top of Zurich and take a trans and have a nice walk after all. But its worth it,... More

This hotel and restaurant is at the top of a mountain in Zurich with a 360 view of the city and lake. You can only get there by train and it requires a 10minute walk up a hill to reach the hotel. That's the only downside. However, if you have mobility problems or heavy luggage, you can call them and... More

We had a 2 day business meeting here and what a stunning venue! You take the train up the mountain and then do have a steep 7-10 min walk up to the hotel (but the hotel will send down an electric cart for you if you wish). Once at the top the views are breathtaking and you can climb the... More

We spent a weekend between Christmas and the new year in one of the "rooms with a view", which came with a nice (tho' not completely comprehensive) breakfast buffet. Spent CHF 25 extra per head for access to their sauna area and about CHF 80 per head for a 3-course meal at dinner including wine. To start off with the... More

TOP for service. TOP for “The Top of Zürich”; The Uto Kulm. The Üetliberg (“The Top of Zürich”) needs no introduction. It’s the town’s very own (little) mountain and probably everyone living in the city has been up there at least once in a lifetime. The view of the lake, the Alps and the city is spectacular… when there is... More

Stayed here for business and have to say that I love this place. Fantastic alpine views over Zurich and the lake. The rooms are spacious and cozy not to mention the restaurant, which is one of the best in Zurich. Can only recommend this place. Location is naturally special as the hotel sits on a mountain but it's definitely worth... More

I loved staying at the Uto Kulm Hotel, the view is amazing, the restaurant is very nice and the free breakfast is the best, you can take the beakfast from the restaurant featuring a very very nice view of zurich, it's totally worth the ride and the clim/walk!
