I usually stay at the Widder Hotel when I am Zurich. There are other internastionally recognized hotels in Zurich but I must say that it is the finest in many ways. The central yet quiet location is perfect for me and the room are spacious and very tasteful. Also every room that I stayed in was decorated in a different way which adds to the boutique nature of the Widder Hotel.

The property was created by joining a few town houses together which adds to the charm of the exterior while at the same time, there no annoying sets of small steps along a floor, which you get sometimes in other town house based properties.

The staff is highly professional and attentive, efficiently solving every request. My only semi-negative comment would be that the staff can be a bit too attentive at times. For example when I return to the hotel, the reception welcomes me by name. Also when I come down for breakfast the waiter seems to know what I had previously. Obviously this is a sign of great service but sometimes I find a it a bit creepy. Nevertheless I would highly recommend the Widder.

Widder is a boutique 5 stars hotel! No doubt! It s not classic! It s new! Location is perfect,in the very heart of the old town,close to the main street Banhofstrasse! Arrived in the hotel by car. Attention,it s located in a pedestrian zone,and sometimes the GPS doesn t show the right durection, check in was normal,no welcome drink. The concierge is very kind and likes what he does. Helped in changing an air ticket,but gave the price of the new air ticket the double that I payed in the air company website. The maidas are very good,as well as the drivers. No doubt,in a next stay Widder is the hotel

We just returned home after a 3 day weekend in lovely Zurich. On previous trips, I had stayed at the more classic Storchen Hotel which is also very mice but Widder is the place I will be going back to. Built from a number of old city center town houses, the Widder hotel has gone through an amazing renovation that has kept elements from the old structures (remaining wall decorations, window styles and shutters) and has added a very modern touch with marble and glass staircases and elevators (as well as the breakfast room) and introduces elements of design with original Eames chairs and other furnishings from big names.
The bathroom was great with a huge shower.
Service was great and the place impeccable. The free wifi was ppreciated (as some hotels just harrass you with charges) and the fresh fruit and free minibar snacks were great to have.
The hotel houses a great restaurant with a terrace if weather permits and a very nice outdoor bar.
For colder weather, the library is nice to hang out in.
We travelled with two young children (6 and 7) and the staff were all very kind and welcoming to us (and them) and made our stay very pleasant.
The hotel is wonderfully situated in the middle of the old town and just 7 minutes walking distance from the main train station.
A great find.

Stayed for a long weekend visiting friends in Zurich and loved this hotel. Very unique mixture of rustic architecture renovated to contemporary state-of-the-art design and decor. Can't wait to go back and the staff respectfully and happily caters to all your needs.

Room Tip: I stayed in the duplex deluxe suite … simply amazing and probably one of my favorite suites ever. H...

It's an amazingly well designed, excellent details, full care on everything place. In the centre of Zurich (not easy to reach by car given the 'one way jungle of Zurich), you feel the beauty of the city centre, you enjoy the series of old buildings it is treasured in. With a modern and stylish taste, with a very very nice garden for drinks, a superb place for breakfast, spacious rooms-everyone different from the other-great staff always helpful. You just feel good !!! I'll go back there when traveling to Zurich which is an amazingly beautiful city. On top, as I am a smoker, they have charming smoking rooms!!! I would say everything is perfect.

Room Tip: I was in the 403, Amazing.

As non-residents, I took friends here for afternoon drinks in the wonderful outside garden terrace bar and enjoyed efficient, discrete service in the warm sunshine. Fabulous hideaway in Old Town Zurich. My parents are here next weekend and it's on the "visit list"! Try, you won't be disappointed.

Well situated just of the main street Bahnhofstrasse at the edge of the old town. Easy to walk most everywhere you want to go.

Great character and style around every corner. Our suite was enormous and lofted. Helpful concierge staff and the outstanding Widder Bar. So much scotch so little time!
