My boyfriend booked this as a surprise for me, and what an excellent surprise! So unique, both spaces were comfortable, the beds were hotel quality, the space was clean and so interesting. We arrived late, after 10pm, we were met promptly and made to feel welcome. The space is a little hidden, but this is beneficial in the long run,... More

We very much enjoyed the Proposal, we love the concept of residing (comfortably) in art. The welcome was very warm, the breakfast delicious and prepared with affection. The whole place was just full of positive energy. We do hope that you will continue, we will be back that’s for sure. Joost & Sophie, Geneva, Switzerland

Stayed here for 3 nights and had a chance to sleep in and experience best of both worlds in the gallery and the van. Even though we have never met Lenny before, there's somehow a special feeling of staying over with a friend. From the first contact, he has been helpful with answering all questions and queries promptly. Breakfast was... More

We loved staying at The Proposal. Lenny and Jeremie, the gallery's owners, have mastered hospitality; they make you feel genuinely and personally welcome. I agree with the other reviews that say that it feels like staying at a close friend's house, but with more autonomy. They are helpful with tips about visiting Zurich, including restaurants and nightlife. Some practical details... More

I stayed here only for a night as it was only available for a night in May 2012. A unique B&B inside an Art Gallery. Location wise: It's in a quiet area, not in the center but quite quick to get there if you want to. Here you will meet 2 enthusiastic owner who treated me like an old friend.... More

My wife and I spent one night in Zurich last month and couldn't be happier with The Proposal. Of the two rooms, we opted for the Bus, which, as advertised, was unlike any night's stay we've ever experienced; it was comfortable, cozy and surprisingly quiet. Lenny and Jeremie, the 2 owners of The Proposal, treated us like family the second... More

We had such a great time staying at Lenny and Jeremie's unique B&B. Their passion for art was apparent - it was very cool to hear about their experiences & idea of the Proposal come to life. The gallery/B&B itself was very clean, comfortable (bathrobes, heating blanket, slippers and plug converters available) and fun that I would not hesitate to... More

I stayed in both rooms during my trip, inside the gallery and in the silver 1970s space bus. The place is very clean and quiet, and my host (Jeremie) was friendly, accommodating and helpful. My breakfasts were freshly-prepared and tasty. I was well looked-after and had a great stay, and I am only sorry that there wasn't an exhibition on... More

My stay at The Proposal was perfect. Everything about the place was positive: the concept itself is unique (a B&B in an art gallery), the peace and quiet of the courtyard, the unbelievable quality of the bed and accessories (who gets a fluffy bathrobe and slippers at a B&B?), and above all, the warm and generous hosts, Lenny and Jeremie....

Inspiring experience that is complete with luxury. A unique experience that will transform the way you think about art, hospitality, and travel. We stayed in the van/art/bed display and had the best night sleep of our 12 days in Europe. Get in early and stay now! This will soon be booked years in advance in every major city. The owners...
