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.

... having no time to do anything, because you work too much... And about you having no seat in the train, about birds waking you up in the morning (I actually overheard this. Douchebag)
So HONESTLY PEOPLE, celebrate life, go out and love yourself and all the ******n endless possibilities, stop whining about your own stupid decisions and responsibilities you actually force on yourself.
It's all you. It always has been.

... were doing the final call for the flight and asking if we were there over the speakers. We ran through the airport like crazy people and made the flight. (Yey that was a relief!) They closed the doors just after we got on and off we went.
The flight was good, they kept bringing free food and drink and the seats were comfy. I watched some movies I'd been meaning to see and we arrived after around 9 hours in Hong Kong. That ...
... curry each, and a non alcoholic drink later we had just spent $100 AUD [snaps fingers], just like that. Although delicious, the taste of dinner was quickly forgotten, and instead leaving a bitter taste in our mouths. Next day it was our job to get extra stingey and save a few dollars. A local supermarket near by had self serve salads, milk and yoghurt which we bought for our breakfast and lunch. Although it came to around $30 on just these, this is the cheapest ...
I woke up in the morning still feeling ill and knew that I had caught something the night before. We only had a short drive today, so we hopped in the car and made our way down the Swiss Autobahn to Zurich for lunch. Zurich is known for having one of the most expensive shopping streets in the world, the Bahnhofstrasse. It is also the home to the Swiss stock exchange and ...
... In fact, I liked that the church provided shelter from the cold wind and a resting place to sit. I think we stayed in the Great church for a period of time while waiting for the Water Church to open at 3pm.
The water church was interesting in that it was under water - kind of like a basement church.
Zurich although not very memorable was definitely more things to see than Geneva. Although also very city-like (where you dont' see anyone until lunch-time and ...
