The Widder is a great example of Switzerland at its best. Service is flawless. Efficient and anticipating your needs in a manner that is friendly but never intrusive. The location just off the Bahnhofstrasse is perfect for business or leisure. The hotel itself is a gem, set in a series of historical town homes that have been merged together with... More

Spent three nights at the Widder. It is a simply wonderful small hotel with remarkable rooms and situated in a particularly strategic location in the middle of Zurich's Old Town. Breakfast was served in a beautiful atrium and the staff couldn't be more accommodating.

To be fair, we did not stay at this hotel so I cannot comment on the rooms. We stopped in while looking for a nice place for breakfast. The lobby is luxurious and the staff all seemed accommodating. The breakfast room was like a greenhouse with lots of windows on the ceiling and exterior walls. The servers were very helpful.... More

Check in took a long time even though we were the only guest at that time. I had to close the curtains all the time as next building was only 1meter away. There, I could see somebody's kitchen, office, etc. I wasn't aware n I almost got heart attack while changing clothes. Furniture was dated, mattress was discomfort. Bathroom toilet... More

Dear Ninakota It is with great regret that we read your message and we are sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us! One of our USPs is our location in the heart of the old town. The streets are narrow within the historic part of the city and neighboring buildings are closer than you are used to in... More

I stayed here for 2 nights on a recent business trip. I can't really add much to the other reviews. The service, rooms and facilities were all absolutely terrific. Everything you would expect from a hotel at this level. Perhaps the best compliment I can offer is that I can't think of anything I can offer to improve the guest... More

It truly is "an oasis of tranquility". I was little bit skeptic regarding this, because the hotel is located in the city center practically, but I had the best night sleep in a looong time! So peaceful, so private, so quiet.. We stayed at one of the very modern, luxurious duplexes, and it was fabulous! All members of the hotel... More

This is one of my favorite hotels in Europe so far. I'm a chronic insomniac and I had some of my best sleep while traveling in this hotel. It is walking distance to many great restaurants and historical points of interest. The hotel food was above average and I loved going down to the sunny breakfast room in the morning.... More

We went to Widder Hotel early June and stayed for 2 nights. It was absolutely great since we arrived. Like mostly everything in Swiss is above expectations, this wasn't different. The staff was extremely professional and efficient. The accommodation was excellent and sleeping in the very comfortable bed and pillows was easy. If they could make any change for better... More

I usually stay at the Widder Hotel when I am Zurich. There are other internastionally recognized hotels in Zurich but I must say that it is the finest in many ways. The central yet quiet location is perfect for me and the room are spacious and very tasteful. Also every room that I stayed in was decorated in a different... More
