You cannot go wrong here...it is just wonderful and has all the services that you would expect from a 5 Star Hotel. It helps if you are on an expense account though. The rooms, restaurants and outdoor dining and central location all made it my go to Hotel here.

When my future wife visited Zurich I wanted to show her one of the best kept secrets of Zurich, the Widder hotel. We had one of the very old rooms with original paintings and decorations and it felt for her like a dream as it is was completely different to any US hotel she has been in so far. The...

After enjoying a couple of nights at the Widder hotel in March 2015, I agree with all the other reviews: this hotel is really magnificent. But let me tell you that what makes this establishment an amazing experience is the staff. They were all professional beyond description, and really sweet and friendly. The hotel itself is well built (they spent...

This hotel may be all cut up but it is all metal and stone and so neat! We stayed in a two room suite with an old charm feel. Nice piece of fruit and water left every evening. Breakfast is a treat every morning as is the staff. The front desk staff is helpful and kind. The whole hotel is...

Excellent small hotel in the middle of the city. Luxurious, private, perfect combination of 5 old buildings with new elements. Very friendly staff, lovely garden restaurant unseen from the Rennweg, cool outside lounge - like an exclusive quiet oasis between Rennweg and Bahnhofstreet. Very good food in the hotel restaurant, the new AuGust Brasserie (opened in november 2014) is cool...

I usually stay away from modern hotels.. This hotel is the exception. For me the best hotel experience in Zurich year over year... The bar is a destination in Zurich.... and this year they opened a new small cozy brassarie style restuarant which us very nice... The place to stay in Zurich..

This hotel is a mixture of modern facilities and old world comfort. Its small but I got lost in it a few times as its old buildings linked together. The room was great, and the bar is excellent. A historical boutique hotel , in a very central but quiet location.
