When in Zurich on business the Widder is my first choice. The location is perfect and the hotel has quite some style. The staff are wonderful, helpful and polite as well as having great local knowledge.

I stay at the Widder very frequently. It is a very special place. Great location in the middle of historic Zurich. Modern interior with very comfortable rooms. The restaurant is excellent and I would recommend the outside restaurant in the summer. The bar is a real gem and the head barman, a great character, mixes an excellent cocktail. What makes... More

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.
