    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.

    Elegant Modernism


    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.

    Great Place


    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.

    ... days we had the car so not a huge mileage. We were fortunate that the drop off depot was only about 1.5 kilometres from the hotel so we enjoyed a walk back. We had selected this hotel as Sarah's apartment is just across the road so very convenient. It was so good to see Sarah again - it is seven years since we last saw our "lonely Swiss girl". (When Sarah completed her exchange papers she had written she was a lonely child rather than an only child so she ...

    ... for Brienz near where we had rented an apartment for the next week, we couldn't get in until 4pm, so did some sightseeing along the way. Although we could see snow on the tops of the alps, with the cloud cover & rain it was not the picture book or postcard scenes, but still very beautiful. We drove up mountains with narrow roads, not as hairy as those in the French Alps, & Clem did really well considering we had left ...

    Happy to see in Air India's Shubh Yatad magazine articles on Puskkar and Hampi. Did not realize was going via Mumbai. Had a mango juice and cookies on that short haul.

    ... wooden Chapel Bridge decorated with geraniums, we both had a real "wow" moment and it helped to melt away the frustrations of the day.

    The excitement was short lived as we walked through the Coop and looked at the price of food compared to Germany! You can add a healthy 40% on to the cost. Campsites too are now up around 45 Swiss francs which is about 36 Euro. In Germany we were paying no more than 26 Euro. A coffee has jumped from about ...
