The Widder Hotel is a beautiful hotel in center of Zurich and only a few steps away from the Banhhofstrasse. We had a deluxe room which was very spacious, tastefully decorated with a mix of traditional and modern artwork and filled with original pieces of designer furniture. A decent quality roll away bed, a child-sized bath robe, sweets and a gift were all provided for our 2 year old son who was travelling with us which I thought was a nice touch.
The service is exemplary and all the staff we encountered went out of their way to make out stay a pleasant one. As we were celebrating birthday during the stay, the hotel presented me with a great customised box of Sprüngli Grand Cru chocolates which was very much appreciated.
Breakfast is a relatively simply affair with the usual choice of continental options (included in the rate over the weekend) though you need to pay for any hot extras which is a bit of a disappointment given the cost of the rooms.
We didn’t eat dinner at the hotel though have heard good things about the food from friends and family in Zurich. Valet parking was 40CHF per night which isn’t bad value considering the location of the hotel.
The Widder Hotel is an expensive hotel but this isn’t a cheap city and is on par with other 5 star hotels in Zurich. What sets it apart is the boutique nature of the hotel, attention to detail and high quality service.
