Mountain Top Gem
Kulm looked a little too good to be true for the price I was paying, more affordable than most hotels in the city itself and much nicer than the ones for the same price. Kulm was amazing. I paid for a "courtyard view" room but being on top of the mountain I could still see all across the Swiss countryside. The viewing area and observation tower in front of the hotel is spectacular and it's nestled at the top of a bunch of hiking trails so it's a popular spot for tourists and hikers during the day so you don't feel totally isolated. I will absolutely stay there again.
Many would probably dislike the seven minute walk (via wide dirt road) from the train station up to the hotel, I personally loved it but could see it being really annoying with a lot of luggage. Likewise the trains running there stop after 11pm and that is pretty much the only way up there without a really inconvenient hike since it's mostly a no car zone up there, so consider that if you're out clubbing.
Very satisified. Loved the view of the city and the feeling of being away from it all. Enjoyed the train ride from the city to the hotel. Staff was very helpful and willing to please
The walk up a very steep hill to reach hotel
The breakfast buffet and the clean air with the many walking trails.
No teamaking facilities
Marvelous wiew..but it is a usually 4 star hotel
parking situation, missing information about reaching the hotel by car
Place is fantastic. Surroundings are wonderful, convenient for hiking.Very good restaurant.
Bathroom design is inconvenient, it is surprising for this hotel class
Beautiful setting, modern rooms, friedly staff
Isolated and a little hard to get to from the city - you need to clid 10 minutes by foot from the train station, and no train after 11:30 pm to retur you from the city to the hotel.
Very clean, friendly staff, excellent restaurant
was difficult to find, directions to the hotel were not very clear, i.e. it was not immediaely clear that S-Bahn must be used to get to the hotel.
Excellent location, very modern & clean rooms, good food
uphill walk from station in inclement weather
The hotel was up on a mountain with fantastic paronamic views of the city below. For someone who's never been to Zurich it's the best place to start seeing the region.
Nice view of mountains, lake and city from the 'top of Zurich'
With a stay at Hotel UTO KULM in Zürich (Center), just steps from Uetliberg Lookout Tower. Featured amenities include complimentary newspapers in the lobby, dry cleaning/laundry services, and luggage storage.
