I stayed at Banana City for one night when I was passing through Winterthur on Business. The location is excellent, only a few minutes walk from the train station. When I arrived the hotel looked very nice and modern on quite a large complex. Upon arrival the staff were helpful and polite. However I was disappointed with my room considering... More

This is the third time I have been booked into this hotel. This time it was for a conference. The check in staff on reception were as accommodating and friendly as ever.

First of all I have to say that I have stayed at this property many times and I do not have any complaint with regard to the rooms, food or service. But I have doubts about their claim that it is a 4 start property. It is a regular business class hotel. Clean rooms, simple breakfast and friendly and helpful... More

I enjoyed my stay here at Banana City. Friendly service at the reception. View of the train tracks, and I don't know why other people are complaining about the noise, the trains weren't even that loud. Good sized family room, the bathroom was spacious and very clean. Comfortable beds = great quality sleep. There was a wide range of breakfast... More

The name of this hotel definitely caught my attention. Someone else made the hotel reservation for me and when I saw the name of the hotel I wondered what type of place would have a name like Banana city hotel. It turns out that it is just a regular 4 star business hotel close to the station. Apparently the name... More

I already wrote about the noise and lack of air conditioner in the rooms. This time we can also add the fact that the rooms are not being cleaned properly. Below few just couple of photos to describe what do I mean. On the first photo we can see pigeon droppings. On the other corners of the floor at the... More

Stayed here for two nights on business trip. Hotel is fine but there is no air con. It was nearly 30 degrees in the room at night. Staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms are standard enough. Free bottled water in the fridge was good. Breakfast was pretty good. Nice choice of hot and cold food. Ask for a room... More

I have stayed in Hotel Banana City for at least 3 times now. The building looks nice from outside, it has two sections, one newer and one older. I have quite mixed feelings, because something always disturbed my peace. One time I was in winter, the room was super cold in spite of the heating. One time I was in... More

I stayed at the Banana City Hotel for one night and was made to feel very welcome. The rooms were nice, the staff were friendly and the restaurant served excellent food. All round a very positive experience, especially with free Toblerones at reception!

As a Global Conference Planner it is critical that a hotel meets my conference needs. This hotel did just that. Staff was very friendly and cooperative with all of our "special" needs. Sleeping rooms are clean has amenities a business traveler requires. The location of the hotel is excellent, close to the train station and downtown Winterthur where restaurants, bars... More
