9 centuries-old townhouses joined by glass and steel right in the centre of the old city. No expense spared in the refurbishment. Minutes walk from the river and lake. And well worth buying a Zurich card to get around the city and museums. Cant think of any negatives. Cost for a deluxe room with separate sitting room around 750CHF pn

I love this hotel - especially in the winter. The location is perfect and the rooms are very, very comfortable - with Eames chairs, heated floors and all the technology you could want. The staff is friendly and the building has a perfect mix of old and new. It truly is one of the best hotel experiences I have had.

This is one of those hotels where nothing is too much trouble. Service is polite, efficient and helpful. This applies to the reception staff, the concierge (who sorted our sightseeing plan as well as our dining) and the staff in the breakfast room (very nice buffet breakfast and some extra cooked items are all included). Location is also spot on.... More

From the moment you arrive you feel welcome and at home, and everything works like a swiss watch. Excellent and well-trained staff, who all speak good english, a wifi system that is easy to use, an excellent restaurant, free snacks and mini bar, personal name cards, big room (45 m3) and a location that is hard to beat. Lots of... More

It is worth every cent for CHF 850 per night : Central location, excellent breakfast, quality furnishing and attentive service. Situated in the heart of the historical cum shopping district, this boutique hotel is efficiently run like the Swiss precision clock, with a bundle of small delights that other hotels should benchmark: Bang & Olufsen in-room entertainment system(TV in both...

What a great location. Literally experience being a part of the history of the great city of Zurich. So close to the best shopping. Staff was exceptional. As a history fanatic, being able to stay in a location where you could feel the past was great. Our room was just beautiful, some of the best amenities that we came across... More

It's our favourite place in Zurich. Have been staying here for about four times now and planning to go back again. The rooms are different, all with an individual feeling to them, especially can recommend a suite with a terrace and a roof-top view over the sea. Simply amasing! Definitely recommended!

Great service. Really great. Perfect location. Incredibile room, with a stunning view on Old Town. The restaurant is very nice, and they have also an outdoor sitting and bar. Very nice and elegant. The bar is the best: live music in the evening and a cool scene. Really a wonderful stay!

Wonderful rooms and interior. Modern and chic yet maintains a quaint and charming feeling. Service is absolutely wonderful! Even though the gym was under renovation when I stayed there, the concierge offered a day pass for a nearby fitness center for 20 swiss franks per day. The Altstadt, where the Widder is located, is a quiet and secluded area that... More
