I stayed at the Widder in February of 2014. I was impressed with the location of the hotel upon arrival, in a lovely section of Zurich set amongst historic buildings. My husband and I were upgraded to a very large and special room. I was thrilled with the quality of the food and cleanliness of the hotel. It is extremely... More

I have had the opportunity to be a guest at this great establishment several times but never took the time to share my experience about my visits. No matter what time of the day or evening you have any type of interaction with any team member it has always been very professional outgoing and one can tell the people care... More

This hotel is located in a meticulously restored series of building in the heart of old Zurich. Our attic suite, with a mezzanine sleeping level was immaculate. The mezzanine bed meant that the room could be comfotably shared with our son. The hotel was a great base to explore Zurich on foot. For runners I would recommend runs along either... More

This is our third stay at the Widder Hotel, and each visit has been marvelous. The staff members are courteous, professional and responsive. Each room or suite we have occupied has been unique, but each has had comfortable beds (those in suite 310 are adjustable), premium bedding, and a contemporary bath with heated tile floor. The hotel is undergoing renovation... More

This is the second time that I have stayed and both times were a wonderful experience. It is walking distance from the train station. There are shops and restaurants right outside the hotel front door. The room was a decent size with a separate sitting area that had two chairs, couch and coffee table. The bathroom had an inviting large... More

Spent a day & a night at this unusual 13th century property in a pedestrianised part of Zurich. Restored frescos in our room old exposed stonework connected by stark steel & concrete passageways & swiss quality carpentry. (I think it's owned by UBS and some of the modern bits felt like a branch of the bank; to industrial not designer... More

Visited for both business and pleasure across end of November and beginning of December : total inconsistency in service - people go to the Widder for its vibe, location and the history behind the hotel - it is almost a landmark of Zurich but also for its outstanding services - I am afraid , I can't affirms the service was...

Having just returned from four-nights at The Widder, we can say that everything about the hotel was perfect.....almost. On our arrival at the hotel we were shown a selection of rooms from which to choose (all superb and unique in their own way). The check-in process was seamless and the staff very friendly - Fabian worthy of mention for the... More

I have stayed at the Widder Hotel on more than one occasion.It is my favourite hotel in Zurich, in a beautiful part of Old Zurich. The rooms are tastefully decorated. The staff looks after your every need. As well, the restaurant in the hotel is excellent. Enjoy your stay there like I did!
