Welcome back to the blog! Today I want to take you Zürich; and more specifically to the iconic Dolder Grand hotel in Zürich. Known for it’s exclusive location, breath taking view & modern art collection. This grand hotel is many of Swiss’s favorite .
This 5-star hotel located on the Adlisberg in not only a place to sleep, but a social hub too. With 175 rooms and suites, world-class restaurants, a spa covering 4,000 square metres, spacious event facilities and an art collection boasting more than 100 works, including originals from Andy Warhol and Salvador Dalí: the Dolder Grand, which opened in 1899 as the Dolder Grand Hotel & Curhaus, is a luxurious City Resort in the truest sense of the word.
I had already been to try their breakfast, and was awed by the Swiss Service and spectacular views. The hotel is located on a hill 5 min away from the center of Zürich, giving a full perspective on the Swiss Alps and the city.
The single and double rooms come in various sizes and with different furnishings, but they all are unique for their individual modern interior and tasteful luxury. Every room offers you all the amenities of a five-star hotel. They include not only an elegant interior guaranteed to let you enjoy maximum relaxation, but also perfect service and a lot more. Most of the rooms will also offer you a breathtaking view of the city of Zurich or its surrounding nature.
We stayed in room 2114, located on the old wing. A beautiful room with a marble bathroom, balcony & lavish entrance.

When I arrived at The Dolder Grand I had lunch at SALTZ!
The Saltz restaurant, designed by artist Rolf Sachs, exudes a unique atmosphere of relaxed familiarity combined with an air of understated opulence. It is a place in which guests can question their preconceptions and see things from a completely new perspective. Our Chef à la carte Julian Mai has created a menu of uncomplicated sophistication, which is characteristic of the simple yet refined approach he takes to cooking and his belief in using regional ingredients and specialities.
The Saltz restaurant has been awarded 14 GaultMillau points.
Zürich is a great city to visit from Geneva, it has different vibe & urban feel than Geneva. We actually created an e-guide to visit this beautiful city from a Geneva local perspective.
