Why Should I Sign up at Bed and Breakfast Switzerland?

Star Classification

Ensuring a high-quality and transparent offer, and allowing a quick overview, Bed and Breakfast Switzerland introduced a star classification in 2003, which has since been continually improved. The participation of the classification is mandatory. However, the host can choose not to promote the star level on his listing.

Your Personal Page

Each host has the opportunity to provide his personal profile with his own touch. Do you have pets, unique views, or would you like to introduce yourself? Photograph the most important things of your accommodation. Up to 30 photos can be uploaded to your page, and create your own advertising. We will take care of the translation in three more languages.

Contact with Guests

You can decide to offer the possibility of direct booking or whether the guest should contact you only via mail or phone. Both options are available to you. You decide which one is right for you. You decide on all bookings and enquiries. A direct link to your website is also provided.

Visits by Inspectors

Our trained inspectors visit your BnB once within the classification period (currently 4 years), verify your information, and adjust if necessary the star classification. They are available for further questions.

Your Interests

BnBCH has been committed to representing the interests of the BnB providers in Switzerland for over 20 years. BnBCH is a member of Switzerland Tourism (ST), the Swiss Tourism Federation (STF), and along with “Parahotellerie Schweiz” partner of “Schweiz Tourism”.
