- A few things -

There's no better place to be in the heart of downtown Zurich than the Widder Hotel, a boutique property just steps from the city's famous Bahnhofstrasse. This hotel is as unique as they come, with 49 rooms that all vary in design. My suite featured a large second shower with a flat screen television (inside of it!) just off of the living area. If you're tired of the traditional, the Widder Hotel is the perfect place for you. Here, expect the unexpected. Stroll down Zurich's quiet back streets, just steps from the property, and experience a city that seems new and old at the same time. Then, return to this five star hotel and treat yourself to a drink at the stylish & amazing bar! You'll never want to leave.
