“An Outstanding Hotel”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

From the minute you arrive at the Widder, one is treated so well, by all the friendly staff. Their restuarant has an excellent kitchen. The staff are all outstanding. The rooms are lovely and very comfortable.
I highly recommend the Widder

Room Tip: I personally like 303, but this time I was in 304 and it was excellent.

Love this hotel...every room is unique sme are extraordinary,,,if you dont kl\like the room they show you the first time.,,,ask for anohter it will be better! While the lobby is understated and perfect example of Swiss minimal frugality, the rooms are anything but.very comfoprtable , like small apartments with great amenities comparable to any hotel i can rememeber in western europe, bedroom was comfortable and each time i stayed i had a room overlooking the strets below facing the church...the bar is nice and cozy with a cool vibe on many nights...and hte brekafst room is my favorite,,so bright and cheery and the breakfast included with the room was one of the best anywhere i've experienced, do not miss it. Hotel is centrally located and a shprt walk to the Banhofstrasse and not far from the Lake either. Unfortunately, and this is the only negative, the Swiss franc is so strong that I wont be staying there too often but I will miss it,,,Look forward to a stronger dollar!

Room Tip: keep asking for another one until you find one you love

Usually I stay in the Dolder Grand, up the hill from Zurich city. But this time Idecided to stay in town and there truely is no better place! Constructed within several buildings on the Rennweg, which you hardly notice once inside, it has all the comfort you could ask for.
I got my upgrade to a great suite on the top floor, with all the (technical) ammenties you can think of. Great bed, nice couch, movable TV, huge bathroom... should I go on?
Had dinner in their restaurant and what an experience that was! Declicious food, perfect service andvery good winelist.
And to top it all off, don't miss the Widder Bar. Frequently hosting jazz bands, this cozy bar has about any whiskey you can dream off, on top of the usual offerings. Hard to retreat back to my suite....
Location is ideally central in the city. Short walk to about anywhere!

My husband and I went to Zurich for the weekend and thoroughly enjoyed it. They upgraded us to a suite when we arrived, and things continued on a high note from there. Friendly staff, great facilities (I was especially intrigued by the motion sensor night lights in the bathroom and hall!), excellent breakfast, knowledgable concierge, great location. If you do stay there, you can take the train from the airport and walk from the train station to the hotel very easily. I highly recommend this hotel!

Room Tip: All the rooms are unique, which is part of the appeal!

First stay in this hotel, in the old city-center of Zurich, perfect position, the hotel is decorated with taste, a mix of modern and old style. Rooms are comfortable, stylish and well furnished.
Staff was very friendly and profesional.
I had a really nice stay in there and would recommend it to anyone

I stayed in Widder hotel for the third time in the last two years. The service at the desk is very good - but then again, it's Switzerland, on my numerous visits here over the years, I've encountered service like that pretty much everywhere. The hotel's design is light and elegant, and the public areas are immaculate. The first two times I was given the same room that I loved. This time I was shown to a room which I did not like because of the design and the hotel managers have provided me with a different one - a bit worn, but ok. I touch of paint would definitely not hurt, as would not getting new furniture. Otherwise a pleasant stay.

Room Tip: I stayed in room 404. It is ok, just that - it looks quite nice, but I think putting a living area...

We stayed here twice in September. Two different rooms each time. Both unique. Hotel was immaculate as were the staff. Nice outdoor patio/garden, oasis in the heart of the city. Perfect for business or weekend break. Well situated for shopping. Site seeing etc.

Room Tip: All pretty much the same but the rooms on renweg have maringally better views.
