What a treat!
I was lucky enough to stay at the widder for four nights in August 2004. Wow what a hotel! if you have an appreciation for fine design, great food and an unbeatable location this is the place for you ( if you have a large enough wallet!) I was upgraded to a deluxe double which was stunning. Better still, my parents opted for a duplex suite which was amazing. We have stayed in many leading hotels but this was definately one of our favourites due to its originality. Finally, the staff were great. You will not find a better hotel in Zurich. We will definately return ( once i have saved up!!) thankyou mum and dad for a real treat.
This review is based on a 3 day stay at the Widder in Sept. 2004. This is a fantastic idiosyncratic hotel that will appeal to those with a taste for elegant modernist design. Service was excellent throughout. Bath towels are quite luxurious and plentiful. The courtyard is a great place to enjoy a meal. In fact, we ate dinner there twice. Request a contemporary decor room if this suits your tastes.
Questo albergo ci è piaciuto molto. Il personale è gentile e disponibile. La posizione è perfetta, ottima per fare shopping e andare a mangiare fuori. La camera era bella e i letti erano molto confortevoli. Consiglio caldamente questo albergo.
We loved this hotel! The staff is friendly and helpful. The location is perfect, great shopping and restaurants. The room was nice and beds were sooo comfortable! I would definitely recommend this hotel.
Loved the Widder. Excellent second floor restaurant. My room was extremely well appointed. Loved the church bells tolling on Sunday morning from down the street. I overheard the manager saying it cost 160 million swiss francs to renovate this 40 some room hotel. I believe it, very European, very nice. Centrally located in excellent walking area, I will certainly stay here again my next time in Zurich. This is the best Hotel I have stayed in Europe. Great place if you can afford it, but definitely not cheap.
This hotel was absolutely beautiful. The beds were the most comfortable that we slept on in Switzerland. Fantastic a la carte breakfast. Great wine bar...excellent service, and it has live music every night.
Questo albergo è assolutamente bellissimo. I letti erano i più comodi in cui abbiamo dormito in Svizzera. Colazione a la carte formidabile. Ottimo wine bar, servizio eccellente e musica dal vivo ogni sera.
My husband & I stayed at The Widder, Dec 24, 2001 for 3 nights and were very impressed with the hotel. The design was superb. We were upgraded to a suite no additional charge due to availability - didn't have to ask! Spacious, wonderful contemporary decor, leather bed spread, down comforter and pillows, comp Perrier for night water and swiss choc on the pillow, yum. Incredible service. Restaurant food was to die for.
This has to be the most amazing hotel we've experienced. If you have a love of design and architecture this is for you. impeccable..........
Albergo di prima classe
Ho avuto il piacere di alloggiare molte volte in questo albergo e lo raccomando altamente. Ogni camera in cui sono stato era diversa e comunque splendida. Una aveva un piccolo soppalco con una poltrona. Vale quel che costa.

I have had the pleasure to stay here several times and I highly recommend it. Each room I have been in is different and all were wonderful. One had a small loft with a reading chair. Its worth the price.

... and then hit the sack, ready to head into the Alps the next day!
As we made our way through more mountain passes and beautiful green valleys we passed what I thought was our first toll stop on our drive through Switzerland. Having been so desensitized in France we simply pulled up and paid the toll, but I remember thinking that twenty some Swiss francs was a lot just for one toll and then we saw why. This wasn’t any old toll booth, but instead it was the ...

Tuesday (Sept 2nd) there didn't seem like there was that much more to see in Zurich, I debated heading out to another town nearby but instead set out on an adventure to find a nice Swiss army knife for myself since I totally didn't end up losing the nice one I brought due to accidentally having it in my carry on when I flew from London to Caen ...

A walk down to the water front encouraged us to get on a 1.5 hour boat tour around the lake which, again, had fantastic views of the Alps. It was a great experience, even with the crazy wind outside on the boat.
They had to catch a flight, so we said our goodbyes and I went shopping to find myself a fondue pot to bring home as a nice souvenir from my incredibly memorable time in Switzerland!
... expensive!!! We quickly found out that a normal sit down meal with "average" prices is about 50 CHF (exchange rate is close to the USD) per person!! Everything seemed to convert to about double the prices we pay in the US. Needless to say, since we are on a budget we headed to Germany the next ...
