Widder Hotel. Already one week has passed since I stayed at the wonderful boutique hotel Widder Hotel in Zurich. A great weekend with lovely people, great ambience and food. One characteristic of the hotel is that it holds up nine buildings which where originally a butcher’s guild. Renovated years later and transformed into it’s current state.

Widder Hotel THE ROOMS

The hotel has 34 rooms and 15 suites all decorated and designed differently. When I entered my room I immediately spotted the lounge chairs from Charles Eames, which I fell so in love with in green. In fact, the hotel director Jan Brugger has a great passion for designer classics. You’ll find much more furniture from Le Corbusier, Mies van der Rohe, Eileen Gray and many more in the hotel.

I got one of their single rooms facing the Rennweg with a cute balcony. And how amazing is that canopy bed? I slept so well and the cuscions were super soft – it was a dream. The room was super clean. In fact, the room service passed twice a day – one time in the morning for a general clean up and later on in the day to arrange the bed ready for the night and to clean up the bathroom one more time (which is absolutely needless but common in luxury hotels). The mini bar was included, which is definitely great and fresh water and some fruit were refilled every time.

Widder Hotel THE BREAKFAST

I’ve already written about the Restaurant– Boucherie AuGUst in my Foodfriday post this week, where they also serve breakfast. I can only repeat myself and I am all over the interior of this place. But let’s talk about the breakfast

Next to à la carte they have a great variety of fresh bread, croissanterie, fresh juices (try the homemade ice tea!!), charcuterie, cheese, fruit and cereals. Everything what you’ll desire! Since I am such a poached eggs fan I was happy to spot three variations on the menu. On the first day my hunger was bigger than my belly and I went for Œuf Bénédict (poached eggs with ham and sauce hollandaise on a muffin toast) and a salmon bagel. Both so good! Luckily, Helena finished the other half of my bagel. The croissants were cross from the outside and soft inside as they should be. Nothing more to add!

Widder Hotel THE EXTERIOR

We had our aperitif on the Widder Hotel‘s lovery terrace on the first day (more pictures below). During all three days it was always super sunny and the terrace looked even more beautiful. I fell so in love with the blue hydrangeas and the cute succulent arrangement.

Widder Hotel THE FOOD

Let’s get to my favorite point – the food. Our aperitif started already really deliciously with an appetizer place. My favorite was definitely the foie gras and spring rolls with jam.

The evening was followed by a kitchen party where we prepared our dishes, such as scallops on wheatgrass with lime jelly.

Afterwards we got an insight into the cocktail world. In fact, the hotel has the second largest whiskey collection in whole Switzerland offering more than 400 types. Moreover, their cocktails are inspired by old movies.

I saved the best for last – our final dinner. The evening started with a lovely aperitif at one of their suit’s terrace with a great view onto Zurich. Afterwards we were brought into the Pavilion where this wonderfully decorated table awaited us. The theme was Urban Jungle.
