My wife and I found the hotel quite good for short stay, within easy walking distance of the city centre. We found it cheaper to walk to and from the city centre. Breakfast was good and customer service was excellent. However we did not find the room we were booked not suitable for long stay.

Spacious rooms with descent standard. Make sure you get a room that is not facing the railroad. As the hotel does not have air conditioning you will need to have the window open warm nights. With trains passing by only feets away avoid this side of the hotel. Descent bar with a good wine selection, the restaurant has a very... More

Stayed here during a business trip, location is good with plenty of parking. Rooms are good and have everything that you need. Dinner wasn't special but okay, the service on the other hand was great. Breakfast was nice but I expected better.

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. The refurbishment had moved on well since my last visit with all the corridors looking totally refreshed. The room was a good size with a very clean and... More

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
