Historical Traveler Reviews Widder Hotel Zürich
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.
First Class Hotel
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.

... to decide how to best navigate the Swiss dinner options. For those not knowing, most everything in Switzerland is priced much higher than the rest of the countries we've been in. Lots of travelers deal with this and it is not uncommon for people to recommend going to the local supermarket and stocking foods that can be held in the room or that you can take out to the lake and have yourself a picnic. ...
... a lake with vistas of snow topped mountains. It is very picturesque. It was pretty exciting to be greeted by our friends Benjamin, Nicholas and their parents Kerry and Thomas. The airport was a happening place on a Sunday afternoon. We learnt that a lot of people come to the airport for an outing on Sundays. There is a great viewing platform, playground, shops and eateries to attract the masses. Nearly everything else in Zurich is closed on Sundays. As in most European ...
... an unexpectedly fast customs line, collect our bags and and go in search of our hotel driver for the last leg of this very long start to our trip. We rush through the dark humid streets of Mumbai and arrive at the Regency hotel for a much needed rest where we can finally lie fully horizontal for the first time in days. Sleep comes fast in anticipation of our first full day in ...
... friendly. It's like walking into 'Elysium' (if you have ever watched that terrible Matt Damon film). Anyway, so the train literally goes through the town where pedestrians wave as you go by and then the world heritage part starts. If you ever do anything in Europe, or even in your life, it's to catch this train. Twenty kilometres of the most breathtaking and picturesque scenery you will ever see. Mountains and pine trees (like real Christmas trees), waterfalls and ...
... We were parked on what we thought was the right street but our street number didn't seem to exist. I lost count of how many times Matt walked up and down the street (and I mean literally up and down!) in the rain while I kept nice and cosy in the car. Eventually Matt came back to the car and looked up the address on the GPS again. It turned out we had entered the address slightly incorrectly and there was another street with the same name just around the ...
