Althhough I live in Zurich, I treated myself with a weekend at the Dolder! Its a true 5 star luxurious experience! Although its very expensive, I would still suggest to stay here for a weekend at least..
Staff is very friendly and professional.. Spa is fantastic with a fabulous view over looking the lake of Zurich.
This is one of the best hotels I stayed in Switzerland!

We chose to stay for the Valentines weekend at the DOLDER. Since Zuerich is expensive anyhow, do yourself the luxury and stay here! It is well worth the money,

We were treated like royals and felt like it in the wonderful rooms.
The service is very responsive, polite and well trained.
The Spa, Wellness and Fitness area is beautiful and well equipped.
The dinner, breakfast and brunch is high quality and an culinary delight.

The location is overlooking the Zuericher Lake. We walked by foot into the city (15-20 minutes) but there is also a free shuttle service available through the Hotel which runs every 30 minutes.
Remember this is on a hill, so walking DOWN is a lot easier than walking up :-)

If you want to either treat yourself to some luxury or if you are used to excellent service anyhow, stay at the DOLDER when in Zuerich.

Room Tip: Chose the older/original part of the Hotel with lake view!

Some hotels achieve their 5 Star rating by adding services and amenities and ticking off boxes but we all know that not every 5 Star Hotel is equal.

As regards this particular luxury Hotel, I could not find fault. I found the property itself, a rarely well-done blend of original 1890's classic Swiss architecture and state-of-the-art luxury.

The staff were outstandingly efficient and friendly and every single one of them made you feel so very welcome and special. The only Hotel I can even compare the service to is the Paris Ritz - absolutely perfect!

The Spa facilities literally took my breath away. I am somewhat of a Spa lover and am a member of the newest hi-tech Spa in Andorra where I live. I thought I had seen it all until I arrived at the Dolder Grand. It is elegant and functional, spotlessly clean and has the most attentive staff. The perfect relaxation haven.

I could not recommend this hotel enough to anyone looking for a little, or a lot, of pampering.

The Hotel has its own collection of private art at every conceivable space for your viewing pleasure. It also has an award-winning barman and a 2 Michel Star restaurant as well as their more casual Garden Restaurant.

The quality of the food is exceptional!

I personally believe that a Hotel can have as many facilities and services but it is the staff that make it a wonderful experience. The Management of this Hotel should be very, very proud of theirs!

Room Tip: Ask for Superior Delux as these give you outstanding views of lake Zurich and the city itself.
