The staff at the hotel looks to make your stay great. It is not just the desk staff, but also the Kitchen staff, the cleaning staff, and the restaurant and bar staff, all looking to make your stay comfortable. The rooms are clean and quiet. The bar is cozy and usually there is a small crowd. The complimentary breakfast is well stocked. There is a well-equipped fitness center that is available at a reduced rate.
In the warmer months, with the windows open, there can be some noise from the local rail system but this is limited to the rooms facing the rails and is not a problem during the months when the windows are left shut.
The train/bus station is a 5 minute walk. The hotel is convenient to the Olde town section of Winterthur where there are a number of restaurants and activities.
I stayed at the hotel in October 2010 and January 2011, on and off for nine months. I had my choice of where to stay and I always chose to return to Banana City and will continue to do so.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Winterthur's Friendly Business Hotel
Hotel Banana City is a completely independent hotel under private ownership. It's part of SISKA Heuberger Holding AG's multifunctional services complex located in the centre of town, close to Winterthur's central train station. The building complex, more than 200m long, has such an intriguingly arched shape that locals have come to affectionately call it <
>, hence the hotel's name. What used to be an industrial site has been successfully converted into one of Winterthur's most beautiful hallmark buildings thanks to its modern glass facade. Successful and Popular The hotel is very much focused on the specific needs of business patrons. With 10 conference halls and meeting rooms, the banqueting hall and 101 guest rooms, it has all it takes for efficient congress organisation in a single place. Hotel Banana City is becoming an increasingly popular venue for congresses and meetings. Each year, the hotel played host to more than 52,000 guests, amongst them many conference and meeting participants or persons attending cultural events or private parties. Hotel Banana City (including all guest rooms and conference facilities) has been consistently built to give full access to persons in wheelchairs.
