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 the price and star rating of the hotel. The size wasn't bad and it was clean but the room was very dated and not particularly a nice place to be after a long day of travel. I've stayed in two star hotels in Germany that had the same feel.
I've seen from other reviews that the hotel is under renovation so perhaps I was just unlucky and had an older room. Also I didn't really get bothered too much by the noise of the trains.
