“Zurich from the Top!”
Reviewed 24 August 2014

My family was really impressed of our first staying in the hotel: great view of the city, excellent service especially at the reception, good breakfast.
The new "round" hotel wing is really nice: quiet and trendy.

The hotel is a short drive from the city center but the tram is much more comfortable to get right to the center. In 5 minutes by walk you are in the zoo. I would reccomend with family!

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony room: great view of the city.

Nice hotel but extremely far and inconvenient from the city. Hotel has a nice overlook of the city but that's about it. Rooms were extremely small however it was very pleasant to enter a room with a plate of fruit with a personalized welcoming letter. Down side- no one offered to help us with our luggage so that was very much a hassle.

An excellent Hotel. Very romantic. This property has everything you could ask for. Excellent service, food and atmosphere. A short tram ride up to Zoo then a short walk up to Hotel will give you a view that is worth every euro. Winter was stunning with everything covered with snow. Absolutely pristine. Situated next to the grounds of the Zoo very quiet and romantic. Internet was excellent. Free breakfast was superb. A great choice when staying in Zurich. Nice to get away from the hustle and bustle of inner city. Short tram ride to city center and you have it all. Nothing short of excellent as only the Swiss can do it.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the lake and City. Beautiful

I have stayed in Zurich before, but always in the city. For my most recent trip, I decided to try something different. This hotel is a short drive from the city center, in a nice neighborhood and mostly wooded area.
It is really wonderful! My room had a very large balcony with an amazing view of Lake Zurich. And it was close enough to the city that I could still hear the church bells from below. The staff is very friendly, and the restaurant and patio areas are gorgeous!
I will DEFINATELY stay here again!

Room Tip: ask for a room with a balcony.

I booked this beautiful location for a romantic weekend. Even if hotel is out of the center and if you have to climb the hill to reach it, view is wonderful. But then, nothing more. Poor service. Nothing like what you are expecting for that price category. Had to wait 10 mn at checkin for a poor girl who was alone and overwhelmed. I boooked for two on a bookingwebsite but hotel did not get the info. I had to beg to get extra towles in the bathroom and then was suspected to have cheated at the booking. After a first night in a small room I complained and got an upgrade with a bigger room. But still, hotel is overpriced and you have no service. Breakfast room is just as unpersonnal as a central station. No deckchair to relax and enjoy the view in the garten. Overpriced food. Boiled ravioli with no sauce, no butter, no oil for 30 CHF....
I picked up this location for a romantic experience and we ended up fighting because of the accomodation.
Go there to have a drink but that s all.

We were three guys and stayed here for four nights. The property is nicely situated atop a hill with a fabulous view over the city and the lake.
The construction is unique in the sense there are no floors to climb - it is a spiral walkway to all rooms. The colour theme is very refreshing.
We had the lake view rooms which was great with a balcony to enjoy your wine in the evening.
The restaurant is great which served excellent breakfast in the morning and nice meals on the sit out patio in the evenings.
The tram station is a minute away with a nice Italian restaurant " Diercii" close by.
THE ONLY THING MISSING IS SOME ENGLISH CHANNELS ON THE TV. It is a business hotel and one would think that they would be having English speaking guests!!!
The staff agrees but it seems the manager does not.
A great place to enjoy your vacation and value for money.

Room Tip: Lake view is good

If you're looking for a different hotel - not your standard chain hotel then this is the one for you. It is set in the hills above Zurich with beautiful views over Lake Zurich and only about 10 minutes taxi ride away. We held an event there and whilst we had some issues with the rooming lists, Anja at the hotle managed to sort it all out for us. Our guests were very happy - I am sure they will remember this meeting vs one at a Hilton or Meridien Hotel. The food was good. Rooms - alot of them are smoking rooms although we could not detect smoking smells from them so it wouldn't be so muhc a concern. There are rooms on the new side but I preferred the ones in the main building which to me had a better feel (personal taste perhaps). Also, some of the rooms on the newer side were ground/low level so I wouldn't want to open the window in these and there was no air conditioning - o.k. for now but perhaps not in Summer. I dont' think it would have gone as well as it could if it had not been for Anja.

Room Tip: If you can get a room in the main building with a view of the lake - you're on a winner!
