The hotel is great, location and views are awesome too. Staff is great but housekeeping was bad. If you plan to take Barnina express or any other scenic train, be sure to check the train schedule. Bar and restaurant are also ok. They are open till late.

I stayed in your Hotel together with my wife, I did enjoyed the room and the view was amazing. The good thing is up there you can dee all Zurich and the view is amazing, it was perfect for me and the prices was also reasonable comparing with how expensive zurich is. I would love to go back again.

The room and view were top notch. I definitely recommend taking the train from the parking lot 7min + 15min walk. It takes 1 hour from the parking lot to the hotel and there aren't a lot of signs of you walk. 20min train to downtown. I actually got locked out of the hotel because they close the doors at...

We decided spontaneously to get away for one night and booked a room. Price was alright but rather high. The room was clean and nice but nothing special. Service was good but neither great. Breakfast was great. We really enjoyed the buffet. Highly recommended.

So when they say it's 7-10 minute walk, it's a STRAIGHT UP HILL HIKE! Also the service isn't great. Had to take all my own stuff to my small attic room "with a view" (a 1ft X 1ft window). The room had one pillow for two guests, breakfast isn't included and isn't worth the purchase price. The whole thing is...

Spent a wonderful time on this great mountain Uetliberg just above the Swiss metropolis. Stunning views over the city and far into the Alps. Great rooms with plenty of space. Modern, very elegant bathrooms. Had a great dinner as part of a big party - excellent! Very nice staff. Looking forward to coming back soon.

A fantastic area to be quiet but not so far from the city of Zurich. With the train facilities, we reached the Uetliberg station. A nice view with the lights of the city in the evening... and the Lake. A very nice hotel, with a friendly staff, a nice room with the view on the mountains and the landscape during...

Our family of 5 stayed here for a wedding in August. Our room had the most amazing views - across Lake Zurich in one direction and, when it was clear, to the far mountains in the other. Absolutely breathtaking! A few minor irritations - most importantly for us English was the fact that in the room there was only a...

So I am still here right now and had a fantastic first evening here. The views, the sunset and the paragliders flying round the hotel last night were all spectular. It really is a unique setting and nice if you dont want to be stuck in the heat of the town. Firstly its easy to get here, it takes 20...

We stayed one night in their honeymoon suite- nice large room with a very noisy spa-bath, but very good restaurant. Only place in Zurich we ever found good croissants! The view was great, however the room's window was quite small The reception staff are courteous, but impersonal, however the restaurant staff were lovely!
