It is good, though maybe a little dated. Rooms are clean and comfortable and not at all cold. Breakfast is expensive at CHF18 but there is a kitchenette in the room and it is good for a business traveller or a family. Fast and funny access by a funicular tram which is an attraction for kids by itself.

Dolder Waldhaus is quite an old hotel. Clean and correct I would say. The rooms are not at all cosy but cold. I didn't like the white , empty walls and the old furniture. The view of Zurich is beautiful from the balcony. Very friendly people. The breakfast was quite ok but expensive for what you get.

Dolder Waldhaus is slated for demolition sometime in 2016. It was built in the 70's, has a great view, good location, free parking, good wifi, and a nice pool/sauna. However, it is not really a 4-star - the rooms are small and very cold, even if you do get a nice view. Breakfast is not included in the price of...

Clean, spacious rooms with balcony and a view. very helpful desk staff and a bar serving cold beer (which allows smokers - indoors!) The pool is a good size for swimming with showers, a sauna and beds poolside....

When we arrived our room was prepared only for 2 persons. We had to ask reception to add amenities accordingly. Additionally we were charged for extra bed!!! But as...

We have stayed fiirst at this hotel in the 1980s. All the good things are still there, nothing has changed! We stayed on the 8th floor, the room was huge, the view was for honeymooners.

Here in Zurich on business. Opted for the "4 star" dolder Waldhaus over the dolder grand (5 star). To clarify the dolder grand is an amazing 5 star hotel.
