I have been a regular client of this hotel for over 16 years and it's still perhaps my favorite non vacation hotel in the world. The staff learn your name and it makes the place feel like home. The most memorable time was on 9-11 when NYC was attacked. I was in Zürich at the Widder and a bouquet of...

Stayed for a couple of nights on a business trip. The staff were friendly and helpful, the suite was impeccably clean, the food was delicious and the location is a 5 minute walk from shopping and the main train station. Highly recommended.

This top-class hotel really lived up to its billing. The chauffeur service to and from the airport was first-rate, no hitches. My room was perfection itself, even if it took me a while to work out the lighting. My meals were great. The staff were extremely attentive to every need. For example, there was no marmalade for breakfast but the...

I have stayed at the Widder Hotel many times in the past few years. I have also stayed at other high end luxury hotels throughout Europe. The Widder is still the best hotel I have ever stayed at! The service is exceptional, the rooms are large and incredibly well furnished, the hotel is an outstanding Boutique Hotel! Expensive but worth...

Spent a night here on business. Even with a corporate rate it was expensive. Service exceptional. Rooms spotless. Mix of old and new not totally to my taste. Overall a bit soulless for a supposed 'boutique' hotel.

It is expensive for what you get. Location is ideal for shopping and touring.Reception and concierge are helpful and cheerful . The room I stayed in was noisy because it was on top of one of their resturants.

We really enjoyed our one night stay at the Widder. This is a very lovely place mixing both modern design and the old building charming beams and wall paintings. The highly cosy rooms provide exceptional comfort, absolute silence although you are in the old town center which is very touristic. We had no opportunity to experiment more about the service...

We very much loved our stay at this property. It is centrally located -- an easy walk to the main train station, the charming old town and shopping areas, and Lake Zurich. Check-in was efficient and we appreciated the quick tour of the property as we were escorted to our room. We loved the beautiful library -- a great place...
