We stayed just for one night at the Widder. The location could not be better. The hotel is modern, superb service, nice breakfast buffet The decoration, in my view, could be a bit better. We stayed in a top floor and the AC did not work very well. It was a hot summer day in Zurich.

The Widder Hotel is situated just off the mainstreet Bahnhofstrasse in Zurich. It has just as much discretion and humbleness that one could ask for in a five star de luxe hotel. Widder is run by a top hotel manager and his wife, ensuring that all guests, travelling for business or pleasure will get pampered with top service upon arrival... More

We stayed at the Widder Hotel in a stunning superior room on the second floor with a lovely view of the Rennweg. We received a warm welcome with mint water and fresh butter biscuits. The Hotel's history into the 12th century is mind blowing and there are reminders everywhere. It has stunning modern features such as an all glass elevator... More

Spending too much nights in hotels every year, it is difficult to be really surprised even more difficult to be impressed. But this is just what happens when you enter the Widder hotel. Reception is not so impressive but already showing a touch of difference. Outside restaurants and lounge garden are nicely subtle. Everything is perfectly designed and maintained. The... More

Having traveled extensively for three decades I can say this hotel is in my top 5 ever. Impeccable service, great rooms, superb food and a helpful pleasing attitude. One of the world's best hotels. Worth every penny. Well done Widder. Recommend staying in a deluxe room. Well appointed with a balcony to people watch.

Just returned from 4 wonderful days business/pleasure stay at this hotel. Recommended by my friends and after taking looks at Trip Advisors review, decided to try...what a right choice made as now I tend to stay away from chain hotels (it's boring) and will opt for independently run and "true" so called boutique hotel. Centrally and conveniently situated in Central... More

Situated meters from all the shopping on Zurich's Bahnhofstrasse this amazing hotel is nestled in the quaint cobbled lanes of the Old City. From the moment you enter this opulent hotel you cannot fail to be impressed. The concierges welcome is professional, friendly and efficient. Our room was ready immediately even though we arrived mid morning. The deluxe room is... More

This is a lovely conversion, done at great expense, of old townhouses in Zurich City Centre In cosy surroundings and with an evening piano player, it has a huge collection of excellent (some rare) malt whiskies and the bar staff are experts in their subject. As an enthusiast for Scottish malts, I have never found them lacking in knowledge. The... More

I agree with what others have said about the Widder Hotel; it is stylish and has blended it's history with the new perfectly. It is also in a great location! I used the meeting facilities which were great and finished the evenings with drinks in the bar downstairs which oozed old style cool.

Most old hotels, when renovated, have a very awkward feel. The Widder doesn't. Every room is different and every room is great. Do not miss the bar downstairs, even the locals like it. Don't miss how they lighted the bar, brilliant!
