Woke up to sun but a much cooler temperature than we have been having...my tootsies were freezing...only problem is that when we left the UK I hadn't thought about coming back at the end of September when it would probably be cooler, and I only took my flip flops!... You still wearing yours chicken? Left this lovely site and set off towards Ottenbach, our second stop in Switzerland. Haven't got to travel too far today. To get ...
... airport at 3 and flew to Helsinki at 7pm. Before landing found out our flight to HK delayed till next morning and we were having to stay night at Holiday Inn near airport. Arrived in Helsinki and we were placed on direct flight to Beijing at. 5.20 tomorrow. Holiday Inn very nice and we had our own ...
... and I felt super proud to be there with him. Two teens who live in Switzerland but have a South African mom were there and they were so excited to chat to Matt about all things skate and they even asked if they could have a ...
When we left Florence, it was in a state of readiness to tackle the unknowns of the following two days. Firstly we had to get to Milan, where we would board a local train for Tirano (not to be confused with Torino - which is Turin). We had accommodation booked at the The Hotel Bernina, across the road from the Swiss-run rail service up the very pretty mountain route to the city of Chur. From there it was another 1:15 train ride to Zurich, our final destination. Thank goodness our ticket ...
... Lake of the Four Cantons, we soon found ourselves wandering amongst a much more stereotypical Swiss city. Lucerne has a much more cheery feel to its character in my opinion, with vibrant flowers in most every windowsill, brightly colored homes, and streets filled with smiling people (even in the rain and on a Sunday, when most shops are typically closed). Strolling through the cobble stone streets filled with innumerable Swiss watch and knife ...

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.
