I have been visiting Zurich pretty regularly, sometimes on business, sometimes with my wife who loves Zurich opera. She is quite conservative as for the hotels to stay at. But surprisingly enough after a few tries we fell in love with Widder hotel which is a manifestation of high tech rather than of old time luxury. The design is quite...

This Hotel is probably one of the best in Zurich. We have stayed there a couple of times and have never been disappointed. The breakfast room has been changed and has a very nice atmosphere. The only negative in this room is, that the tables are too close together. However, the buffet was excellent. The rooms are really nice and...

If one can afford this hotel, it offers many things not found in other Zurich 5 star hotels. Perfect location to walk to nearly any attraction or restaurant and also in the middle of Zurich's great shopping district. A unique blending of a very old building remodeled with the latest modern touches and amenities to make your stay pretty special....

Wonderful staff members who were kind and helpful and provided outstanding service. Excellent, clean and spacious room with most comfortable bed and pillows. The food in the hotel restaurant was delicious. We found the hotel to be in a great location and we could easily return to the room every now and then between tours, meals and shopping. We are...

We, some 100 women strong, just celebrated Christmas at the Widder Hotel. And EVERYTHING was perfect! Only compliments and not a single critical voice, and that alone should be sufficient recommendation. The room was beautiful and the acoustics were accommodating, so that despite all the high voices we could actually talk and hear one another. The food was excellent and...

Wonderful hotel, fantastic service - until valet brought back a new car which had just been run into a wall (by the valet). Management immediately took care of paperwork, apologized, and paid for repairs. And then disappeared - no compensation for the multiple days of re-scheduling needed to deliver, check, and pick-up damaged vehicle. In my opinion, a shoddy response...

Great choice for zurich city center just a couple of minutes of walk of everything. Located in an historical building in the old town with fairly large well designed rooms you will get swiss service at its best. The widder bar is also worth a visit if you like whiskey they have a huge amount of choices, moreover you can...

We were first given a spectacular room with beautifully painted wooden beams, very historical, and very roomy. What a disappointment to discover it was a smoking room. There was a musty smell and a slight smell of smoke so we asked to change. Unfortunately the room we were given, although luxurious and with interesting art deco elements, was smaller and...

The Widder is understated, yet elegant. We arrived with our little dog in tow and this was a first...the staff issued her a dog tag with the hotel information to add to her collar just in case she decided to sneak out on her own! Truly genius! The staff were polite, informative and helpful in a very understated way. Our...
