    Pocket Guide: Switzerland

    Home to silky smooth chocolate, delicious cheese and breathtaking mountain views, Switzerland lives up to many of its clichés. However, this multilingual, landlocked country also boasts cutting edge scientific institutes, world class museums, cosmopolitan cities and a vibrant arts scene, ensuring there’s something for everyone. Holidaymakers can spend their mornings shopping, gallery hopping or sipping artisan coffee, and their afternoons hiking in pristine countryside or swimming in crystal clear lakes. With its impressive variety of activities and hotels, Switzerland should be at the top of every discerning traveller’s bucket list.

    Areas & Neighbourhoods in Switzerland

    Bern – Though less well known than its more cosmopolitan compatriots, Bern, the capital of Switzerland, has a lot to offer. The city’s medieval old town is the perfect place to start a sightseeing tour of the city, while Bern’s many outdoor swimming areas are great for relaxing and cooling off in the summer months.

    Geneva – Nestled on the banks of Europe’s largest Alpine lake, Geneva has to be one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world. Holidaymakers book hotels here to explore the city’s high end shops, sample mouth-watering cuisine from almost every country on earth and spend hours discovering the delights of Geneva’s old town.

    Zurich – Considered by many to be the coolest of Switzerland’s cities, Zurich is also regularly voted one of the world’s most liveable. Book a Zurich hotel and explore the city’s burgeoning arts scene, enjoy a night out in Züri-West or explore the historic sights of Zurich’s picture postcard centre.

    Lake Lucerne – Located in the heart of Switzerland, Lake Lucerne is one of the country’s most beautiful natural features. In the summer, lakeside hotels and watersports are the order of the day, though the area that surrounds the lake also offers plenty of opportunities for hiking and biking.

    Things to See with a Hotel in Switzerland

    Lake Geneva, with its beaches, stunning setting and lofty fountain is a must see, while the towering Matterhorn, the Rhine Falls and the alpine foothills are also well worth visiting during your time in the country. Impressive man-made sights can be found in all of Switzerland cities, with Lucerne’s art-lined Kapellbrücke, Lake Geneva’s Chillon Castle and the old town of Bern among the most picturesque. Castles, churches and traditional villages dot the landscape, ensuring there’s a great photo opportunity around every corner.

    Things to Do in Switzerland

    Like many alpine countries, the activities on offer in Switzerland vary depending on the season. In the winter months, visitors from all over Europe flock to the country to have a go at skiing and snowboarding, while others head to the country’s festive markets and cosy Alpine villages to enjoy picture postcard scenes. In the summer, Switzerland springs into life with lush green mountains, clear lakes and outdoor public pools providing plenty of opportunities for hiking, climbing, swimming and water sports. Summer is also the perfect time to explore Switzerland’s historic towns and cities, while museums, galleries and castles are open throughout the year.

    "Excellent Hotel with Fantastic Staff"
    While this hotel is very pricey, it is well worth it. I booked 2 rooms for our family. The rooms were beautiful and very comfortable. Lots of light and well appointed supplies were in each room. The only thing missing was an outlet in the bathroom for my hair appliance. So I had to curl my hair while sitting at the desk, which was fine. Central location with the free boat across the street to the main downtown area. The staff were super nice and accomodating. The front receptionists were all very pleasant, well dressed and super professional. Their English was great. The bell men and security people in the lobby were very attentive and helpful. We ate in the Chinese restaurant and the general restaurant on the 2nd floor. All of the waiters were amazing and very friendly.Smiling all the time. Food excellent. We found this a pleasant surprise for Switerland. Our daughter goes to school in a nearby town, so we come often to Switzerland to visit. Since waiters and staff don't work for tips, it is very rare to get good service in Switzerland. We ate at 2 Michelin restaurants in Switzerland, and they provide amazing service, but other than that, waiters and waitresses and not normally very attentive. But this hotel and their staff provided the best service in Switzerland.

    "Beautiful hotel but quite noisy"
    The hotel is centrally located and within a short walking distance from the train station. The inside of the hotel is beautiful, very nicely decorated for Christmas and with a great swimming pool and sauna. The room was clean and quite spacious and we were provided with nice toiletries, bathrobes and slippers. On arrival we found a bowl of fruits on our table and throughout our stay we were given chocolates which was a nice touch. When I made the booking I asked for a quite room but unfortunately was given a very noisy one. The window was facing the main road and was located right opposite a nightclub which stayed open until 5am. The person at the reception offered to give us a different room the following day. That was sightly better as no music could be heard from the nightclub but it was still facing the main road so I was disturbed by the traffic noise. I also felt quite cold at night as the the central heating is controlled by the hotel. The person at the reception provided 2 electric heaters which was great but the room felt a bit cluttered and certainly not something I would expect to experience in a 5 star hotel. Overall, this is a great hotel with beautiful surroundings but the city rooms are quite noisy thus impacting on the sleep quality.

    "Excellent location"
    We were a family of 10 with two small boys, two babies, two grandparents and 4 other adults. The hotel looked after our needs very well.We had 4 rooms, one large with an extra very comfortable roll-away bed and another large with cots for the twin babies.the other two rooms were small as were their bathrooms - elegant but definitely small! Everyone was friendly and helpful from the lovely receptionists to the room staff.
