Very well maintained with top class housekeeping and attentive staff. Many thoughtful items in the room such as travel adaptors, and an excellent turn down service, Breakfast was varied and healthy options were available. Lots of help and advice when requested. The room really did not lack anything at all.

I have stayed at the Widder on business in Zurich and my wife and I stayed for a long weekend recently. Unique and outstanding property in the heart of Zurich's Old Town. Steps away from great shopping and dining. The staff are helpful genuinely interested in ensuring a good stay. Included breakfast was outstanding. Will go back again soon.

A leading hotel of the world member, the Widder is ideally located in a pedestrian area near the famous Bahnhofstrasse. If you want charm and a hotel like no other, this is the place. Built within seven houses there are no boring straight corridors. The rooms are perfectly equipped with lots of high tech and and nice contemporary furniture. Highly... More

I stayed at the hotel several years ago and was totally blown away. Unfortunately only for one night. Service levels were some of the best in the industry and the choice of whisky in bar is astounding. All the rooms are different in decor and totally unique. This hotel definitely rates as one of my top five in the world... More

Somebody can tell about possibly better hotels in Zurich, about value for money etc. I will not argue. I will smile and just stay again in the Widder next time I'm in Zurich. Because...I just love it. :-) One more thing: Widder Bar is a must, you can beleive me.

You cannot go wrong here...it is just wonderful and has all the services that you would expect from a 5 Star Hotel. It helps if you are on an expense account though. The rooms, restaurants and outdoor dining and central location all made it my go to Hotel here.

When my future wife visited Zurich I wanted to show her one of the best kept secrets of Zurich, the Widder hotel. We had one of the very old rooms with original paintings and decorations and it felt for her like a dream as it is was completely different to any US hotel she has been in so far. The... More

After enjoying a couple of nights at the Widder hotel in March 2015, I agree with all the other reviews: this hotel is really magnificent. But let me tell you that what makes this establishment an amazing experience is the staff. They were all professional beyond description, and really sweet and friendly. The hotel itself is well built (they spent... More
