    • Single
      7.4

      The amazing landscape, the large size of the rooms, and the overall quality of the service

      The breakfast was not included, and therefore I had to pay 24 swiss francs per day in addition to the hotel fee. I also think that the design of the rooms should be in the next years revisited to make it more adequate to its 4-star rating

    • Family with children
      9.6

      Clean, comfortable, quality, quiet, friendly.

    • Single
      4.2

      Convenient for the places I need to reach, when in Zürich.

      Not good value for money. Out of date bathrooms. Poor and expensive food in the restaurant.

    • Older travelers
      9.2

      Friendly and helpful front desk staff. Proximity to the forests is charming. The pool and adjacent garden is very quiet and good for sunning oneself. The room was sizeable and well-equipped. Worthy of mention is the Dolder Bahn (which is very cheap) and the use of the hotel shuttle service to downtown Zurich provides all one needs for access to the city.

    • Older travelers
      10.0

      We like the location, the breathtaking view of lake Zurich, the swimming pool and the comfortable room.

    • Single
      8.8

      Excellent and quiet location at the edge of the forest on Dolder Mountain, with a magnificient view over Zurich, the lake and the mountains. Yet close to downtown thanks to very efficient public transportation right beside the hotel. Free parking and a swimming pool and spa are additional benefits of staying at Dolder Walhaus.

      the rooms are a bit small

    • Older travelers
      9.6

      The magnificent view over lake zurich and the surrounding mountains is amazing! The room is spacious and very welcoming. We just love this hotel!

    • Family with children
      9.2

      The Superior room was excellent, large with exceptional view over the lake and city. The hotel is not in immidiate downtown, but the views and the easy access to downtown is all worth it.

    • Single
      7.8

      The hotel was very clean and the room very quiet. The room was small but with a beautiful view of the city.

    • Single
      7.0

      Single rooms are separated from the Next single room by à door; quite noisy! Not sth you expect in à 4 star hotel. When I complained I was immediately given à quieter room.

    • Family with children
      8.8

      good spa, great view from the room, very big room

      a little far from city center (though the view of the lake partiall compensates this inconvenient)

    • Couple
      6.6

      Nice relaxing location in the hills above Zurich, great views from balcony, good indoor pool and sauna, convenient transportation link with Dolderbahn tram stop outside the hotel, linking with No.3 tram to Central/Old Town. Good size rooms. Extended our stay for 1 more night quickly and with breakfasts included, as opposed to booking through internet.

      Outdated, too "plasticky" bathroom appliances (would expect better in a Superior room at 4+ star hotel), limited breakfast choices (eg need to pay extra CHF 10 for scrambled eggs instead of boiled eggs?).

    • Family with children
      7.4

      Spacious room, panoramic view of Zurich. Very friendly and helpful staff.

      Deluxe rooms are decorated in a traditional style and a bit old fashioned. Book Superior room for modern style.

    • Group of friends
      9.2

      I like the nice few from room and nice treatment from staff

    • Family with children
      8.2

      Lovely view from the balcony and excellent facilities in the room (except a kettle!)

      Hugely expensive and then you're asked to pay extra for breakfast (which we didn't, there's a lovely cafe at the bottom of the funicular)
