Official Classifications for Rooms and Apartments

Optimum market positioning is almost impossible without a star rating. That's particularly true where accommodation is concerned. The official classifications create transparency and help guests to navigate the jungle of different reviews.

All certification options for rooms and apartments.

Classifications enable guests to compare options while helping to raise accommodation standards in the Swiss tourism sector. Private accommodation and small businesses can sign up to receive between one and five stars. We distinguish between bed & breakfasts, guest rooms, and apartments.

Bed & breakfasts (B&B)
with breakfast

BnB Switzerland partners with the Swiss Tourism Federation (STV/FST), the official classification body for all Swiss B&B accommodation. Once a host has created a profile, they can complete the classification questionnaire independently online. Certificates are issued by BnB Switzerland and the STV/FST. Unlike classifications for guest rooms and holiday apartments, breakfast must always be on offer at the guest's request. The provider is on site to welcome guests personally when they arrive.

Confirmation of classification must be submitted as part of the online profile when joining www.bnb.ch. Unlike B&B classifications, providers of guest rooms do not have to, but may provide breakfast. The provider is on site to welcome guests personally when they arrive.
