Swiss City Hotels

Switzerland’s elegant and gracious cities have some of the best luxury hotels to be found in Europe, but also have plenty of mid-range Swiss hotels that accommodate the majority of the tourists, and back-packer hostels for the large numbers of young people who visit every year.  Here are a few of the best in some of the principal cities:  Zurich has several of the best hotels in Switzerland, including the Widder Hotel, the Baur au Lac and the Dolder Grand.  For a good budget hotel consider one of the Ibis hotels in Zurich, either the City West or the Ibis airport hotel, both of which offer excellent value for money. 

In Geneva two of the best luxury hotels are the Hotel de la Paix and the Mandarin Oriental, while in the moderate category Hotel Carmen and the NH Geneva Airport get the best reviews.

Luxury Resorts in Switzerland

Most of the best luxury resorts in Switzerland are to be found in the popular skiing regions of the country.  A few of the very best are Grand Hotel Park in Gstaad, Badrutts Place Hotel in St. Moritz and the Grand Regina Alpin Wellfit in Grindelwald.  All these ski resorts are distinguished by the levels of luxury, service and pampering their guests enjoy. 

There are also many luxury Spa resorts, boutique hotels and even golf resorts where you can experience the very best of Swiss hospitality.  For golf, try Hotel Guarda Golf in Crans Montana, while for a Spa experience you will never forget have a look at the Cinq Mondes Spa at the Beau-Rivage Palace, Lausanne.
