Widder Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 2, 2013

I stayed with the Widder Hotel in July 2013. It is a genuine world class hotel full of thoughtful surprises. The style is rich, authentic modern with eye catching details all around - it is a paradise for design-minded, splurge-willing, luxury-loving travelers. The staff is elegant yet friendly and the summer garden full of hydrangeas feels fresh and inviting. Strolling old town Zürich is easy from the Widder and I can't imagine any traveler who wouldn't fall in love with the surroundings. I had one very, very small suggestion at the end of my stay. I later received a beautiful overseas letter explaining the situation and stating they would make sure the small request was provided in-room when I visited next time. I am amazed by the gracious gesture and send my thanks to the staff of the Widder Hotel.

Room Tip: If you can splurge for a room with outdoor space, do. :)

The exterior is plain and the lobby underwhelming, but then there's the impeccable and genuinely friendly service, and the food (now by Dietmar Sawyer - Sydney's loss is very much Zurich's gain), and the excellent outdoor spaces, and the great bar, and the top location, and the comfortable rooms ...... Phew! All a bit too much. Like Zurich, the Widder rewards familiarity. The sort of hotel that every decent city needs. See for yourself.

When can we come back? The Widder was an excellent base in the City - a luxurious hotel with attention to detail that we really appreciated. The staff were friendly and the rooms were all unique. The hotel made for a very memorable stay in Zurich.

If you like small, elegant, quirky hotels and can afford the high price, the Widder is superb. Our upgraded room was quiet, large and architecturally interesting. The meals, both breakfasts and dinners, were excellent. The location is great. The staff were courteous and professional. The little extras such as a welcome fruit basket and wine, wifi, water, and other such items were included. My local acquaintenances consider it to be the most appealing high-end choice in Zurich. A good pick.

Fantastic Room combining old and new in a very clever renovated update of what was already a superb room from previous visits. Service in the Hotel is excellent, Staff most attentive pleasant and friendly. We looked forward to breakfasts everyday. Lunch and Dinner in the Garden really were fantastic (superb food) Position of the Hotel quiet and yet central to Bahnhof strasse and best shopping all nearby. Walks on the cobbled streets down to the river and Zurich sea were
such a turn on and so beautiful. I think Widder has a variety to suit everyone.

Room Tip: All rooms are different and fabulous.

Marvellous contemporary hotel with very attentive staff and fantastic food (breakfast).

Only hope that people wont be disappointed if it dosent become their "best ever".

You couldnt get a more central location, but was also very quiet.

As with everything in Zurich it was very expensive but ultimately worth it as you can see where the money has been spent. The quality of every single thing was absolutely first class.

This was an absolutely wonderful experience. The room was beautiful! New, clean, modern and every convenience. Centrally located but quiet and relaxing. The hotel staff was extremely courteous and attentive. The mini bar is gratis. Each night they brought a fruit or chocote snack. The first day they brought us a welcoming bottle of wine and apricots and nuts. we arrived early on Monday morning from the U.S. and they accommodated us by 9:00 am. We had a little breakfast in the hotel and by the time we were done our room was ready. This is the most wonderful hotel I have stayed in and would definitely go back and will! Our room had huge windows that opened to the brick streets so even on a rainy day we enjoyed looking out and taking in the quaint area. Absolutely superb!

Room Tip: It ws all perfect!
