Hotels in Switzerland

Yes, Switzerland is legendary for catering to the ridiculously wealthy, but the truth is that there are plenty of hotels in Switzerland that welcome the budget-conscious, the newlyweds and the adventurous set that visit the country each year. Here are a few suggestions for those seeking Switzerland hotels that think outside the box.

If you’re backpacking across Europe and find yourself wander(lust)ing through Switzerland book a room at a Switzerland hotel like Youthhostel Baden or Backpackers Lucerne, where the on-the-go vacationer is more than welcome to rest their head between hikes. Meanwhile, those who will be taking to the peaks for the best in winter sports, there are ski lodges and cabins aplenty with a Switzerland hotel like Ski Lodge Engelberg leading the pack. And if a romance-kindling stay is what you’re looking for, consider staying at any Switzerland hotel like the Hotel Beau-Rivage Geneva or any one of the charming bed and breakfasts that dot Switzerland’s Alpine region.

A throwback to the days of glamorous schussing followed by tuxedo-and–evening gown dinners, Badrutt’s Palace is still the center of high-society socializing in St. Moritz.

This classically Alpine hotel overlooks the valley and boasts indoor and outdoor pools as well as stirring views of the Matterhorn.

The hotel looks like a fairytale castle set against the dramatic Alps. Book one of the Tower suites where the view and personalized service are fit for a king.

Stop at this historic hotel in the center of town. While sipping your drink, try to channel Brigitte Bardot, Richard Burton, and all the other chic celebs who sat at this very bar after a day on the slopes.
