“A Room with a view”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2014

If from the outside the hotel has nothing special to offer, the view on Zurich city is a amazing. The room are nice and comfortable.
But as so many time in Switzerland, the staff is not very nice and helpfull. They refuse us to drive uswith their electric car because some stupid rules they made up themself.
Breakfast was very good and the meeting room are good.

We had a 2 day business meeting here and what a stunning venue!
You take the train up the mountain and then do have a steep 7-10 min walk up to the hotel (but the hotel will send down an electric cart for you if you wish). Once at the top the views are breathtaking and you can climb the lookout tower for an even higher view.
I was in the newer part of the hotel in the tower suites (rm 58) and the view over Zürich and the lake was beautiful
We had dinner and breakfast in the restaurant which had amazing views of the Alps.
I would return in a heartbeat

We spent a weekend between Christmas and the new year in one of the "rooms with a view", which came with a nice (tho' not completely comprehensive) breakfast buffet. Spent CHF 25 extra per head for access to their sauna area and about CHF 80 per head for a 3-course meal at dinner including wine.

To start off with the good part, this hotel really has a priceless view over Zurich and invites you to linger in the dining area to watch the sun rise over the alps. The restaurant gets the top grade from me (lovely venison; gourmet portions). The staff was always attentive and friendly and the room was clean, although for the view, you needed to crane your neck a bit and the pillow was not the best one I've ever slept on. The location of the hotel is very nice as it is ideal for short strolls or a walk down to town. There is even a sledge path close by and lots of fun playgrounds for children.

There is nothing negative to say about our stay, although for the price I would have expected a few more amenities in the sauna area. They offer a small Turkish bath and a small sauna (mixed for men and women) as well as two showers, a toilet and an artificial ice grotto. You can grab an apple and some bottled water. You also get complementary bath robes and slippers. It would have been nice, though, to have a small pool and perhaps some warm tea. But the view of the city's night lights while sitting in the sauna makes up for that.

I would recommend this hotel although I'd suggest to look for special offers. The restaurant is A+. Try to aim for good weather.

Room Tip: If you can, ask for the city view.

TOP for service. TOP for “The Top of Zürich”; The Uto Kulm. The Üetliberg (“The Top of Zürich”) needs no introduction. It’s the town’s very own (little) mountain and probably everyone living in the city has been up there at least once in a lifetime. The view of the lake, the Alps and the city is spectacular… when there is no fog. It was (very) foggy when I surprised my wife with a ‘Tête à Tête’ stay in the hotel/restaurant by the same name (you know, the one with the illegally built terrace). So the beautiful room with the spectacular view was a waste of money. On the other hand, the five-course gourmet dinner was worth every penny. The food was exceptional: Perfectly prepared, presented with great care and very tasty. The restaurant setting, too, was fabulous; the candlelight, the decorations, the seating arrangements. Picture-Perfect. Regarding the ‘Top for service’, we have rarely experienced this kind of customer care. Attentive without overdoing it. Manual-Perfect. And the atmosphere!! Despite the place being rather busy – which kept the waiters on their toes – there was no hectic, no shouting, no stressed faces. The staff smiled, talked among themselves and helped each other out, and always finding time to speak with the guests. The ‘orchestration’ by Diego; the ‘host’, was Amazing-Perfect. His eyes are everywhere. He discretely guides the waiters and knows when to fill a glass of wine… and does it with style! We had the impression people who worked there actually loved what they were doing. All in all, the friendliness of the service staff is overwhelming (in the hotel, too) and their professionalism in everything they do is Beyond-Perfect. Feeling welcome and appreciated with so much class makes going out a real pleasure. Matter of fact, we were so impressed that we stayed an extra night – just so we could experience the outstanding hospitality (and a great meal) one more time. Perfection at its best. Top of the Top!
PS: I’ll be back next week for lunch with my daughter!

Stayed here for business and have to say that I love this place. Fantastic alpine views over Zurich and the lake. The rooms are spacious and cozy not to mention the restaurant, which is one of the best in Zurich. Can only recommend this place. Location is naturally special as the hotel sits on a mountain but it's definitely worth visiting.

I loved staying at the Uto Kulm Hotel, the view is amazing, the restaurant is very nice and the free breakfast is the best, you can take the beakfast from the restaurant featuring a very very nice view of zurich, it's totally worth the ride and the clim/walk!

The view from hotel's location is fantastic! The room was large enough for one person; there were a double-sized bed and two armchairs. The room was equipped with a coffee machine (free of charge), a safe box, a flat TV and a mini bar. The hotel offers guests and luggage pick up service from Uetliberg train station upon request. The walk from the station up to the hotel is a little bit steep, so I'd recommend to use this service, especially when arriving there for the first time with luggage to check-in. The breakfast was rich with plenty of choice. The staff was very friendly and helpful.
Zürich city center can be easily reached by S10 train from the near station (the train leaves every 30 minutes and arrives to Zürich main station). However, the final station of Uetliberg is currently closed due to the renovation works, so the S10 train stops about 300m before it at a temporary platform, that's why you should do a longer walk to the hotel.
