Hotels in Switzerland

For impressive views at a more affordable price, this property is perfect with its wood-beamed rooms that are simple but cheery.

The ground floor of this updated 15th-century house near Zurich is occupied by Face, a postmodern gallery, while the remaining three floors—called Brain and Soul—contain a suite and a private apartment with an open fireplace and platform bed.

Family-owned since 1861, the stately, neo-Renaissance Hotel Schweizerhof, near the lakeshore promenade, has a storied past. Luzern is known as Switzerland’s “festival city” (chiefly for its summer music festivals), and the five-star property hosts several events of its own throughout the year.

Zermatt’s oldest hotel, on a coveted corner near the Matterhorn. 

Room to Book: Standard rooms don't have a view, so if you want one, you'll have to pay for an upgrade.

Doubles from $562, minimum stay of seven nights in winter.
