We got very good flight deal for Switzerland and planning to fly this December,I am wondering if there are any cheap hotels during christmas period? All hotels seem to be very expensive,do u think we should wait for some lastminute deals or we have to book early?

Where are you planning to stay? In Geneva? I would try priceline - in Switzerland, the 3* hotels are very nice and four star are excellent. With very rare exception, the hotel will be clean and well run regardless of whether it is a 3* or 4*

What are your actual travel dates? Can you make the trip for the week over Christmas and heading to New Year? The business cities such as Zurich and Geneva should have some good prices because not too many meetings or conventions over the Christmas/New Year period!

You could take a look at the hotels along the left side here on the Geneva forum to see which ones are popular with other TA travelers.

Hope this helps.

Everything in geneva is expensive...

If you can, have your trip coincide with the Escalade which commemorates an attempt by the Savoyards to take the town of Geneva in 1602 and their defeat by the Genevois. Special meal, and wonderful torchlit pagent through the streets of the old town on the Sunday. this year the dates are

december 7-9.

It would be useful to know if you are hoping to stay in Geneva itself? About 5 years ago a relative got a good deal in a hotel in Montreux over Christmas, so it's possible that if you expand your search along the lake you might get more luck. Montreux would be a nice bet anyway if you are going before Christmas, as there is a good Christmas market up to an including the 24th.
