Widder Hotel

A design hotel with history

What it is

A stylish design gem that, impossibly, feels like a comfortable home.

What it isn't

A happening scene. It has live music and the best bar in town, but town happens to hit the sack early.

What we think

Built in the center of the quiet, historic Augustiner Quarter, the Widder Hotel strikes down any preconceived notions about Zurich being a sleepy old business hub. The Widder is an architectural gem: nine medieval townhouses have been stitched together with Swiss precision, creating one interior. The buildings date back to 1490, but before suits of armor pop up in your mind, know that despite the traditional exterior, the hotel's 42 rooms are not only up to modern standards—there's air conditioning and Nespresso machines, don't worry—they're top of the line. There is an enviable ease in which the hotel balances striking style with comfort—you can actually sit on the chairs in the lobby without wondering if your perched on a sculpture. The service is of course wonderful; it falls right between formal and friendly. Also wonderful is Daniel Käser's rustic chic AuGust. The traditional Swiss classics have a heavy focus on meat, but the menu is far being a treat for only carnivores. The bar here is the local haunt—check out their library of spirits. There's over 1,000 of them.

You're here because

You appreciate a place that can pull off a mix of Warhols and medieval wooden beams.

The Moment

Chatting with the concierge about what sights you shouldn't miss, he tell you that it's easy to see all of it and motions to follow him. Up the steel and glass elevator to the penthouse, he leads you out to the terrace for a 360-degree view.

Location

In the heart of Zurich's historic quarter. The historic sights are a stone's throw away and it's a 5-minute walk to the train station and a 15 minute drive to the international airport.
