Expert reviews

Frommers review:

“Old meets new at the luxurious and quirky Widder, made up of eight adjoining medieval houses, and named after the 13th-century Augustinian monastery once located here.”

Fodors review:

“Zürich’s most captivating hotel was created when 10 adjacent medieval houses were gutted and combined—now steel fuses with ancient stone and timeworn wood.”

Featured as Fodor’s Choice in Zurich.

Telegraph review:

“Widder Hotel is an intriguing concoction of townhouses dating from the 15th century, artfully melded to make space for 49 unique rooms. Located in central Zurich, the five-star also boasts a library decorated with Eames chairs, two restaurants and one of the city’s best bars.”

All you need to know

While the Widder Hotel’s exterior might look medieval, the interior is as modern as possible. Comprised of eight medieval townhouses, this hotel has 42 guest rooms, all completely unique from each other. While some areas feature exposed beams, stone walls, and fireplaces, other rooms in the hotel have a colorful, ultramodern, loft atmosphere. Beautiful design, unique art, comfortable furnishings, and friendly service abound no matter which style of room you choose. Each room has Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs, Nespresso machines, and minibars. Upgrade to an apartment for a sitting area, roof terrace, and a luxurious free-standing tub.

Six onsite restaurants mean that you will never run out of places to eat. Enjoy a gourmet meal prepared by Chef Stefan Heilemann at Widder Restaurant, or taste high-quality meat and sausage at the bistro-style cafe, Boucherie August. Grab a cocktail and quick bites at Widder Garage or Widder Bar. This hotel creates a Christmas pop-up bar in the winter, The Greenery. Showcasing birch trees, wood tones, and lots of champagne, The Greenery is transformed into a magical winter wonderland. The Widder Garden, only open in the summer, serves a variety of snacks and drinks, set to the backdrop of an outdoor patio in the heart of the Old Town.

Located in the Bahnhofstrasse shopping area, you couldn’t ask for a better location in Zurich. Only a two-minute walk from a light-rail station and a seven-minute walk from Zurich’s main station, a stay at the Widder Hotel will allow you to have all of Zurich at your fingertips.
