The hotel keeps its four star promises: modern, large rooms, large bed, good toilet, and of course impeccably clean..... but....BUT... why save on towels? They are too small (I mean, if you take a shower). Of course no bathrobe. First mystery. Second mystery: why an hotel with an international standing has only Swiss plugs, which make it impossible to connect...

This is an excellent hotel, right in the heart of Winterthur, a short walk from the train station. I had a room in the old building of the hotel and it was fabulous! Spacious, ample wardrobe space, separate sitting area, two desks to do your work, a separate dressing area, large new bathroom, and a nespresso coffee machine! I had...

The hotel is close to city center and extremely close to the railways so it's always noisy if you keep the windows open. If you close them you won't hear a thing. Thank God it wasn't one of those hot days. Other than that, the staff was nice, wi-fi was great and the facilities were nice.

Hotel staff were very welcoming, service was very good. Prices a bit on the expensive side due to being in Switzerland. Local Irish pub 'Paddy O' Donnellys' in walking distance, very welcoming but again on the expensive side.

I stayed here for one night for a business trip in the local area. The hotel was a quick five minute walk from the nearby train station and easy to get to.

The hotel is located about 5 mins walk from the train station and very close to the downtown. The food in the restuarant was very nicely presented. We discovered several very nice restuarants near the hotel and our main destination (Stadthall) was only about 15 min walk. I thought that the extra cost for a city side room was a...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Winterthur's Friendly Business Hotel Hotel Banana City is a completely independent hotel under private ownership. It's part of SISKA Heuberger Holding AG's multifunctional services complex located in the centre of town, close to Winterthur's central train station. The building complex, more than 200m long, has such an intriguingly arched shape that locals have come to affectionately call it <>, hence the hotel's name. What used to be an industrial site has been successfully converted into one of Winterthur's most beautiful hallmark buildings thanks to its modern glass facade. Successful and Popular The hotel is very much focused on the specific needs of business patrons. With 10 conference halls and meeting rooms, the banqueting hall and 101 guest rooms, it has all it takes for efficient congress organisation in a single place. Hotel Banana City is becoming an increasingly popular venue for congresses and meetings. Each year, the hotel played host to more than 52,000 guests, amongst them many conference and meeting participants or persons attending cultural events or private parties. Hotel Banana City (including all guest rooms and conference facilities) has been consistently built to give full access to persons in wheelchairs. Health and Relaxation On our premises, you will find Winterthur's largest fitness and spa centre (exercise machines, saunas, relaxation pool) ... more   less
