“whiskey galore and peaceful hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

We stayed overnight and had a 'stylish' room which was furnished with dark wood. The room had a lovely small balcony to sit out on and enjoy the sunshine. The garden was also perfect for doing this though.
Downside was a small bolt on bathroom but more positives that negatives. Patricks bar has a lot of good whiskeys and the bar tender a very friendly and helpful advisor.
Hotel is set about a 15 min walk from the station and in a quiet street about a 15 min walk to the centre.
Zwolle is very pretty and worth a visit.
Breakfast was ok . Lovely setting but ad hoc service.
We would return though to hotel Fidder.

This hotel we spend our weddingnight and the first three anniversaries. It;s a wonderful hotel. From the outside it looks nothing spectacular, but wait till you enter and you will feel like you were set back in time 100 years. And I'm not just talking about the ambiance, but also the personal service. High quality breakfast. Try the breakfast on your room!
I can recommend this hotel to anyone looking for peace and quiet, for good personal service, for classy and yet homy atmosphere.

Room Tip: Try a room on the road side, these rooms are more bright. The suite is very nice.

Two business meetings brought me back to Zwolle. Looking for a less expensive hotel than my previous stay, I tried Fidder Hotel situated in a quiet residential neighbourhood, at 10 minutes from the NS station and also a 10 minutes walk to the city center. The hotel building is integrated in a couple of connected houses and has a small, cosy restaurant.
The room was clean and comfortable. Integrated bathroom. Original small mini-bar. Diner was excellent! Staff act friendly and professionally. Nice small bar with an excellent choice of whisky (even the only Belgian whisky - Belgian Owl - was there).
Very friendly priced hotel: good value for money: € 110 including breakfast, wifi.

This hotel exceeded our expectations. It is only a 3 star, but it feels much more like a 4 star. The communal areas of the hotel are really lovely and cosy, filled with interesting antiques. The bar is very cute, we enjoyed a drink in there before we wandered in to lovely Zwolle for the evening.
Our room was lovely! We were delighted with it. It was really peaceful with a big comfortable bed, a jacuzzi bath and a sauna, Fantastic! The breakfast was good and plentiful in a lovely room with beautiful furniture.
The staff were very professional, friendly and efficient. Overall, the experience was excellent and we will very happily return.

Room Tip: Room 31 is quiet, has a queen sized bed, jacuzzi and sauna

I love this hotel and everytime I go to Zwolle, I rest in this hotel!
the location is an old house and the business is managed by a young dutch guy. inside the hotel is beautiful with real old style! everything is clean and the rooms are comfortable. there is a great bar downstair with a huge selections of rum, whiskey and grappas. the breakfast is very good with good food and different chooses. location is good and price is more than fair. jsut internet connection isn't the best.
just choose it!

Fidder's - as the hotel staff wishes to have it's name spelt - is a typical Jugendstil-style hotel - as many of the houses in Wilhelminastraat are. By and large, our group of scientists visits the hotel once every year when their annual meeting brings them to Zwolle. The hotel has a restaurant, which we did not put to the test (due to lots of competition in the city!), but breakfast is excellent, and Fidder's has a nice bar of which some 150 whiskeys are the specialty. A (mild) critical comment go to the beds (at least, in room 22) that have had their best time and remember me of the way Grandma might have slept. The staff promised to put new beds on their task list for 2013.

Room Tip: My partner and I use room 22 on the ground floor which is silent and comfortable. A caveat is a smal...

The real advantage for this hotel is it's location. You can get into the city center in 15 minutes walking. The breakfast it's good, with some dutch style influences served in a very nice restaurant with street view!.
No elevator available, but the reception guy offers to carry my luggages upstairs. Friendly staff.
Wireless connection speed very good in both rooms I stayed.
Anyway I enjoyed this nice and old stylish hotel in Zwolle!

Room Tip: Choose a room with Garden view (in the back of the building). There is one room that have sauna bath...
