"We’ve rarely seen a place where old and new blend so well."



Rooms: In 1995 nine historic interconnected medieval houses were renovated and brought back to life as the Widder Hotel, a property that today is arguably one of the best in all of Switzerland. 42 rooms and 7 suites are spread throughout this luxurious labyrinth, each one with its own particular charm, and all with state-of-the-art technology and creature comforts. We’ve rarely seen a place where old and new blend so well.


Specials: The much loved Widder Bar is the perfect place for a romantic date where you can listen to live piano while sipping whisky from their impressive collection. Indeed, impressive is a word to describe the entire hotel, whose unique design makes use of different kinds of wood, stone, and furnishings in every house. It’s almost an experience unto itself to explore the thoughtful ways architect Tilla Theus managed to combine 700 years of history from the buildings, with modern and stylish influences so perfectly.





Located in the centre of Zurich’s old town, the Widder Hotel integrates perfectly into its historic surrounding. Whether you’re in the mood for a relaxing walk along the Limmat (the river that runs next to the hotel), taking in spectacular views of the Alps, or if you want to go on an exclusive shopping tour visiting high class boutiques (everything is close by and connected through intimate little alleys), the best of Zurich is close at hand.

Hotels with Soul by NECTAR & PULSE is a personal collection of our favourite hotels around the globe. They have two things in common: soul and passion. Some serve the best coffee we’ve ever tasted. Some the comfiest beds and linen. Some have a sauna in the woods and delicious home-made jams. Others have a butler available 24/7 or a hunter ready to take you on a hunt. One has a library where you’ll want to while away the hours, another one a kitchen stocked with the best midnight snacks.

What they all have in common is great design, friendly people, and authenticity. We call it the NECTAR & PULSE vibe. It’s that feeling where it’s so comfortable, it almost feels home, but you feel like there’s so much to learn, see, and do. These are the places that make you think to yourself, “there’s nowhere else I’d rather be.” Hotels with Soul are the ultimate destination for curious travellers with a good taste. Discover their story. Experience their soul.


We love to discover new places and to add more beautiful places to our collection. If you think that your hotel reflects our philosophy, please get in touch with us at hello@nectarandpulse.com. We are happy to give you further information, our media kit and our terms. We are looking forward to get to know you and eventually to work together.
