  • I have 2 children... Can we accommodate them with an extra bed...
    Dear guest, the maximum occupancy per room is 3 guest. In each category (except single room) we can accomodate one extra bed at the daily rate of CHF 120.00
    Answered on November 28, 2019
  • Can 2 people reserve a single room? We only need 1 queen bed
    Dear guest, thank you for your kind message. Unfortunately a single room is only for one person. You would need to book a Deluxe Double Room or higher categories for 2 guests
    Answered on January 9, 2020
  • I have two children aged 2 and 4, could you accommodate and cot and an extra bed in any of the rooms other than the corner suite? we are coming for wedding being held at the hotel itself.
    Dear guest, only one extra bed or one cot is allowed per room in any category, for safety reasons. It's not possible to add both extra bed and cot.
