Hotel location is perfect for those who want to be away from the city noise. City center can be reached in 20 minutes using the cable car and trams, the station is few steps from the hotel. The hotel staff were friendly and provided us useful information. Room size and amenities as described and clean. Hotel car parking is an...

The Dolder Waldhaus is the poorer cousin of the Dolder Grand but shares its great location on a small mountain overlooking Zurich and the lake. Lake view rooms are a must. The staff have a fantastic service ethos and the food is good too. The best way to reach the hotel is by tram and then rack railway up the...

I stayed one night in this hotel. Honestly, it does not look nice from the outside. However, the personal was very helpful. The room was clean and convenient for a short stay and the view on ZH and the lake is a plus. The breakfast was ok but could be better for a 4 stars hotel... What I really did...

This hotel is bit far from main Zurich city but it takes hardly 30 mins to reach the main hub by tram. We loved the location and the view from balcony was really awesome but if possible try to stay during clear weather as foggy weather will block awesome view of the lake as it happened to us.

This hotel positions itself as the sister hotel to the Dolder Grand. I stayed for one night in November and the hotel was fairly quiet. This might have something to do with its location. If you are after easy access into the city centre and old town then this probably isn't the hotel for you. However this hotel does provide...

Beware inflated reviews. One below here says "a little older design…" The place is *dreadful*. For the price there's simply no excuse. It's awful, dirty, old concrete towers thankfully perched high above the city. The furniture is as outdated as the building, walls paper thin. I can't imagine what other reviewers are thinking, even though Switzerland is expensive and you...

Stayed at the dolder Waldhaus for one night on a business trip. From outside the hotel doesn't look great however it is really quiet and there is a little balcony in the room with really nice views of Zurich and the Alps. The receptionist was not particularly helpful - a bit weird - and the staff doesn't speak good English....

Zurich is known for it's expensive hotels with very small rooms. If you want a comfortable hotel just minutes away from the city centre, then the Dolder Waldhaus is a very good choice.
