“Now This is a Hotel Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

Excellent Hotel,Excellent Art, Superb Rooms and Service,this is in short the Dolder Grand ,probably one of the best in zurich.
The best part about this hotel is that you just do not feel you are in a big city when staying here.
\The area around the hotel is superb for walking and just relaxing with the views.mine was a very nice spa junior suite, very well appointed.
The art itself in this hotel is so uplifting and the restaurants are good too.
would love to stay here again

What a wonderful way to relax. The hotel is impeccable - rooms are super quiet and really well set up to promote relaxation. The art collection is wonderful. The restaurant has its own well-deserved Michelin Stars and is a "must go" (the Lobster with strawberries and beets was the single best item on our entire 3 week trip). It is near a wonderful forest area for walking. The spa rooms, pool and treatments are well worth it.

We visited the Dolder Grand in April, since it was a late spring there was still snow on the ground as we arrived but the hotel still strikes an imposing and impressive first impression. The staff are very friendly, the restaurants are great, the spa is amazing (albeit a little like being in another world as you walk along the architectural glass walkway between the old building and new spa building). The breakfast was fantastic, all à la carte and fresh, without a dry, picked-over, buffet in sight! The pool and fitness areas are awesome and sitting in the hot outdoor pool with snow all around if a pretty memorable experience. I would happily go back for another short (or long) break to the Dolder as even a couple of days is enough to revitalise.

Room Tip: The spa building rooms feel a little bigger than the original building rooms.

I stayed in the Dolder Zürich last weekend and have to say that it was excellent from arrival to departure. Staff was so helpful and friendly and service was exceptional. The room (suite 1305) was special, nicely decorated with everything with you need. Wifi was for free in the whole Hotel. The bathroom was great as well with fabulous amenities. Had a lovely dinner, food was amazing, I ordered a Wagyu Beef fillet and it was out of this world.
Breakfast was also amazing and tasty. Spend some time at the spa which was relaxing, beautiful and clean.
Will definitely return one day

For five days my husband and I stayed in The Dolder Grand and from the moment we checked in we felt genuinely welcome. The gentleman who helped us at the front desk guided us personally to our room and explained everything we needed to know about the high tech features concerning the lights, audio, video, wifi and heating. Our room and bathroom were luxurious and very clean with a nice atmosphere. The whole atmosphere in the hotel was one of great harmony. Breakfast is a real treat to start the day with.The architect who designed the new building bracing the old one did an awesome job. The art throughout the whole hotel is magnificent and creates a lot of surprising scenes. A great compliment for the spa with it's beautiful swimming pool and in- and outside whirl pools, very nice hosts and all the luxury you wish for. One thing we could not very much appreciate: one of the evenings we had dinner in the 'Garden restaurant", the other than the 2 Michelin-stars one. Quality of the diner was moderate and when we were still having diner, the personnel already fixed the tables for breakfast. Not very romantic. Except from this, all our senses were pampered during our stay, so I will end this review with a warm recommendation for this excellent hotel.

Room Tip: Spa Wing Lakeside.

One of the most beautiful hotel I have ever seen. The service is perfect, the food is amazing, don't miss the Michelin star restaurant. The spa is something that I cannot describe, you must visit, but they don't accept kids.

Room Tip: Ask for the city view, and you will see the Zurich lake.

Design, decor, service, comfort, views...Dolder offers the best of Zurich. It is a bit out of the way (5 minute drive to the lake) but it is worth it. My room was probably the most basic in the worst location within the main building...and despite this i still appreciated the place! Dorder is great to relax with an amazing spa (which i didnt try!) - in the afternoon the sun deck offers the best place to bask in the sun. The only minor negative was the lighting and domotic system that was high tech but a bit complex to understand at first. Maybe a bit too "tecky" for my taste! A final touch: the art collection is amazing and spread around every part of this huge hotel which combines a modern and classical building with the most amazing seemless and yet audacious manner. A true luxary!

Thank you for staying at the Dolder Grand and your nomination of the Dolder Grand as pure luxury.

It is great to read that you enjoyed the interior design, furnishing of the guest room with its fantastic views and the distinct art collection. In order to offer even better value, it would be our pleasure to introduce you to one of our rooms in the newly built wings which exude a modern zeitgeist on a future stay. Concerning the remote control, I would like to inform you that we are currently working on a more user-friendly solution by rendering the navigation more intuitive.

Since you particularly enjoyed our art collection, we would like to point out our iPad application that enables for self guided art tours through the interiors and exteriors of the resort. We would be delighted to welcome you back again soon for a stay with more time to explore our Dolder Grand Spa. Until then we wish you all the best.
