The Dolder Grand Zurich was originally the Curhaus, which dated back to 1899. However, this space has now been transformed into the beautiful luxury hotel that it is today. The hotel is higher in elevation, which means that guests are rewarded with extraordinary views of the city, the Alps, and the lake.
There are 173 spacious rooms and suites and they all have gorgeous white marble bathrooms complete with soaking tubs and separate showers. The floor to ceiling windows completely changes how a person will view the surrounding area, as will time-spent out on the historic balconies.
Artwork can be seen everywhere on the property, so every guest will want to keep an eye out for works completed by Dali, Botero, Andy Warhol, and more.
Business travelers will appreciate the large seminar facilities, as well as banquet areas. During the winter, an ice rink is created out on the grounds, allowing guests to have a little extra fun on their holiday. There is also a golf course next door, for those sunnier and warmer days of the year.
The on-site spa has four thousand square meters of space, which is perfect for those who are looking to have a few treatments during their stay. The on-site restaurant serves amazing cuisine for those who do not want to venture into the city for a bite to eat.

Highlights & Reviews
- On a hillside a 15-minute funicular and tram journey from central Zurich, the Dolder brands itself as a ‘city resort’ and has an impressive roster of facilities to back up the claim: a golf course stands adjacent, there’s space for a 4,000sq metre spa and an ice rink opens on the grounds each winter. The setting is even better on a clear day, when Lake Zurich can be seen glistening from below and the snow-capped Alps, distant but still so majestic, loom over the horizon.
- Dating from 1899 and reopened in 2008 following the construction of a vast Norman Foster-designed extension, the Dolder’s traditional core is now enveloped by two elegant curved wings. The juxtaposition works surprisingly well, but the property’s most dominant design feature is its unparalleled collection of museum-quality artworks, strewn seemingly casually along corridors and in courtyards. Watch out for a Dali on the way to dinner, a Botero sculpture by the spa and dozens more priceless pieces by artists such as Henry Moore, Andy Warhol and Keith Haring.
- All bases are covered here. Rooms in the original Dolder are traditionally styled, with hand-painted wallpaper, gleaming white-marble bathrooms and, sometimes, an integrated sauna. In the newer spa and golf wings, floor-to-ceiling windows capitalise on the wonderful views, bathrooms are finished in sand-coloured Jura limestone and technological accoutrements work seamlessly.
