How to find a cheap hotel

  • Apart from the hotels listed below, you can visit the page of a specific town you want to stay in and view the hotels we recommend there;
  • Some towns are very popular and thus expensive. Find a town nearby with a rail station. Accommodation can be cheaper there and you still have quick access to all local attractions;
  • Look specifically into Swiss Youth Hostels. They offer lodging in dormitories too, which is the cheapest way to spend the night.
