Being a family of four, we reserved one of the Widder Residences, full suites with kitchen and washer/dryer in a medieval building across the street from the main hotel. Not the least expensive option :-); however, it was worth it, as the facilities are spacious and lovingly renovated. Our residence (no. 3) may not be ideal for people who who are not very agile, as access to one bedroom requires taking a few narrow and steep stairs, and the floor in the living room has a noticeable slant that may feel disconcerting (remember that the building is at heart from the 16th century). But overall, the rooms are wonderful. The back of the residence overlooks Lindenhof, a large municipal courtyard, very quiet. The location is perfect, in the city center, yet away from loud traffic, particularly the back bedroom. Many attractions are within walking distance. Our only meals were the delicious breakfasts, offered in charming breakfast room in the main building. Staff are amazingly helpful and friendly throughout. The only complaint was that the rooms were not ready when we arrived at 3pm; we had to walk around and return to inquire several times. If arriving after an overnight flight, the late (or belated) check-in would be a drawback. An option to change or freshen up in a dayroom or bathroom would be a welcome addition. Otherwise top notch.

Room tip: The residences across the street are recommended for families with children, if you don't mind the price.

Staff is friendly and helpful. Rooms are unique, clean and comfortable. Our suite had a high tech shower which was a bit wasted on me, the led light show in the shower was distracting. Lots of hot water and ample nicer linens, towels and toiletries.

The 700 year old building has been completely modernized with a successful attempt to maintain some of the original architectural features and finishes along with some very contemporary features like the glass elevator.

Hotel is a bit of a maze with short runs of irregular stairs everywhere. You really need to watch your step getting around inside.

Furnishings are all comfortable and functional. Hotel is close to shopping and dining. Great place for groups to meet as well. It was our second visit and it will not be our last.

Room tip: Don’t bring your own car.

Dear CJLNYC1962

Thank you very much for staying with us and for sharing the feedback with us.

It is a pleasure to see that you enjoyed your visit in the Widder Hotel. Our property is indeed a quite historical building with 53 rooms which are all a little different from each other and we are more than happy to see that our guests appreciate this individuality.

Hopefully we will have the pleasure to welcoming you soon again in the heart of Zurich.

The hotel was perfection in every way as demonstrated by the outstanding staff, accommodations and location. If you require and expect the very best of everything then the Widder is for you! Our room was beautiful, quiet and every comfort. The dining was exceptional with a Michelin 2 star delicious lunch.
