This is a rustic hotel with fabulous views and strenuous hiking on Zurich's mountain. The rooms are ok, but one should not visit for the rooms. Getting here is somewhat challenging, particularly if you have luggage. Most take a train from the Zurich main station to Utliberg. Then you have a long uphill walk, half with steps, mostly mud. So,... More

I came here as part of a solo 5 stop trip around Western Europe. First time in Switzerland and a great impression. I stayed here for 3 nights and arrived in an evening. Having missed a train up to the mountain (takes 20-25 mins I'd say), I was concerned about my luggage and check-in time so I called the hotel... More

I have been there a few times for conferences, last time was a three days event. It's a great place, especially to stay a few days as the travel up and down is a hassle with luggage and business attire... But once there, you have an unbeatable location to hold conferences, events, workshops... the view is beautiful and the food... More

Read carefully all (!!) informations about this hotel. There is no possibility to get there with a taxi and the trains don't operate during the night, so when you have a long business meeting, you cannot get there after midnight!!!

Dear Guest You are right, it's only possible to go by train or foot to the hotel. While this might be a negative point for some it's a big advantage for those searching tranquility and focus. Warmest greetings from the Top of Zurich More

Stayed in this hotel for two separate nights as layovers. It was a great place to stay. A little far but if peaceful is what you want this is the place to go. Train was quite convenient and ran frequent enough. Need to coordinate to have luggage picked up from train station. Nice trails around it. Room was contemporary and... More

Great location and fantastic views. Staff very friendly and accommodating. Good place for a conference. Rooms a bit student like but comfortable. Enjoyed taking the train to the top and walking up - felt a little quirky.

Dear guest Thank you for the positive feedback. The Uetliberg is a famous place for team-building in Switzerland, so it's great to hear that it's name get's to know in GB as well. Also, it's very unique, that you can only go up by train or walking, so we provide not only a impressive view but as well repose in... More

The hotel is located a little bit outside the town. The local train takes you to the last station where from one can walk... its about 10 minutes. I enyoyed the beautyful view down to the town and the Alps around. The room was fantastic with excellent bathroom. Great breakfast! Friendly staff.

We had a room at the the back of the hotel and the view was still lovely. We only saw glimpses of it due to the fog and rain but not much that can be done about that! The train up to the hotel was quite expensive and it's not the type of hotel you can pop in and out... More
