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.

BY JACKSON: The differences between Qatar and Switzerland couldn't have been more extreme. Everywhere you looked it was lush and green. There was even a light drizzle. No hot, dry and dusty desert here. A mix of traditional Swiss homes and more contemporary styles were evident. There were many houses that looked like my Lego houses complete with the pitched roofs and window shutters. In fact, they were everywhere! There were also very few high rise buildings. The city of Zurich ...
... from two days ago.
Saw the airport just before noon. Got the bag x-rayed, checked in and up through domestic security, all within a half hour. Security was different. You leave your carry on bag for x-raying and go to a different line for the body scanning stuff. Men and women were separated. It's a spacious airport. Can't get the wifi to work. Had a granola bar for lunch, saving the rupees for a modest repast in Delhi.

... proves how hard we worked during the hike! For dinner we had traditional Raclette which is both a type of cheese and a Swiss dish based on heating the cheese and scraping off (racler) the melted part and then eating with vegetables (we had pumpkin, gherkin & potatoes). The next morning Beat took me to the city of Solothurn where we wandered around the beautiful historic monuments, the patrician buildings and through the markets in the pleasant Old Town before enjoying a cool drink ...
... another suburb. So we headed over there, and for some reason Matt couldn't see the funny side of it all. Poor guy! We had to wait an hour or so to check in and by then the rain was really coming down so we just hung around at the hostel, thinking maybe we should have kept going on to Bern since the day was completely wasted. To Matt's disgust there wasn't even any soccer on TV today, so we spent the night watching movies on the now completely operational laptop. In ...
... br> After parking our luggage in our quaint hotel room, which reminded me a bit of a Faulty Towers guest room (except nicer), we dined in the Light of India restaurant inside the hotel on the ground floor. It was advertised as an award winning restaurant for the best Indian food in Kensington. It certainly was good, the flavours were delicious and service excellent. A late night stroll down Cromwell Road to work off the meal finished off the ...
