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.

... classes are shortened to only 30 minutes, in which the exams are given back and then you can leave. All the people I have met and made friends with signs my South African flag, which is now a constant reminder of the friendships I made. This was the last time seeing so many of them, including Mike and Garry McD, two great exchange partners. As we were leaving te grade nines were walking in, having just got back from Kamoka. And thus I made my final trip through the boom ...
... totally uncool in wanting $30 per person entry rather than just taking the Swiss pass, so we blew that off in favor of socialism: refreshments at the Odeon bar, where Lenin, Trotsky and James Joyce worked things out back in the day.
Today's countables: Swiss national museum, one church and two musters, Lindt factory, Odeon.

Today we went to Schloss Neuschwanstein after a tour through the amazing castle with way too many stairs we went back to the car park. As it turns out our hire car (a captiva or as dad likes to Saha ****-tiva or as the fixer man says kaput.) broke down so while daddy call ed the break down sea ice mum the boys and I had lunch I had an $8.00 ...
... to find a fromagerie that trip advisor had suggested. Sadly it was not to be (wasn't at the address) but happily we'd walked past another on the way so went back. Shop was full of delicious looking smelly cheeses and heaps of tasting plates. We selected one that surprisingly had hints of Vegemite. From there we went next door to purchase a baguette and the lady kindly cut it for us so we could make some cheesy sandwiches. Walked back across the river and found a beautiful little ...
The lake is very clean and the water is very clear. Whilst walking around the medieval fortress we saw this HUGE fish swim into shore. So far the biggest fish we have seen, would be less than 20cm at top. This thing was so big that I ( Marg) am convinced that it is either one of the children of the Loch Ness Monster or a lake shark. Personally I am pushing the fresh water shark theory. Every so often you would see duck ...
