Few hotels have their own mountain railway station! And yet, this rack railway is located within the City of Zurich and included within the ordinary public transport ticket.
This hotel is located in a residential area, on a wooded hillside above the city with outstanding views of the city, the lake of Zurich and across to the Uetliberg.
I had a comfortable, well-equipped modern room with balcony and a spectacular view. Although the hotel does not have airconditioning, the location benefits from any cooling breezes.
Very good buffet breakfast selection to enjoy seated inside or on the large outside terrace.
Although the current buildings date from the 1970s, I was surprised to learn that the hotel will be closing to enable a replacement to be built.
Travelling to your hotel by rack railway is not only a different experience, but the frequent service makes this hotel easily accessible for the city.
