      Switzerland Jan 3, 2015 at 8:28 AM

      Hello!
      I need to find out this hotels name, it's situated in Ticino.
      This is what I know about the hotel:
      It is very big and have both a main building and other buildings as well. It can have 400-500 guests when full.
      It has two or three restaurants one restaurant is in another building and that restaurant is more for banquettes and big occasions it's called "the Paradise".
      The hotel has one bar inside and one pool bar.
      It has a Spa with emotional showers.
      It has 24 hours reception service.
      The floor in the reception area is blue and beige tiles.
      This Christmas there was a big celebration party with dinner and a band and this New Year they had a big party too and the hotel was full.
      It is a family owned hotel, the owners are old and they have two adult children, one daughter and one son
      The hotels entrance have glass doors.
      It has several levels and it's very hard to find your way there if you are not familiar with it.
      If you stay in a room in another building one of the staff will take you to your room in something similar to a golf car.

      Please if anyone knows what hotel this could be, answer me.

    • A 6 days 5 nights itinerary in Switzerland? (Zurich, Bern, Lucerne, Interlaken, Geneva?)

      Switzerland Dec 14, 2014 at 11:01 AM

      Hi everyone. I and my friend (2 girls) will be travelling to Switzerland from 22-27January. We will be arriving in Zurich on 22Jan (22:30) and departing in Geneva on 27Jan (12:25).

      We would love to see the mountains and alps (more of the nature) during our trip. We would also love to see a bit of the city part. We are confused about where we should stay for visiting the mountains and the transport. My friends recommended me to go to Appenzell, Santis, Walensee, St Moritz, Montreux and Zermatt. Really hope someone can help us with that as this is our first time going to Switzerland and planning from scratch for our trip. Any recommendations/ suggestions please? I know we sound really greedy because there seem to be a lot of nice places that we don't wanna miss! But we would also want a relaxing trip which we can really spend some decent time in the beautiful places. Please share with us your ideas... Loads of thanks! :)

      Travelling within Switzerland!

      Switzerland Oct 27, 2014 at 12:05 PM

      Hello everyone!

      I am planning to have a 2.5 days trip in Switzerland. My plan is to reach Zurich (from Milan, Italy) on Thursday late night, spend the whole Friday in Zurich, go to Lucerne and spend the whole day there and get back to Zurich at late night. I will spend half day left in Zurich and go back to Milan on Sunday late afternoon.

      I am just wondering whether I can buy a round trip train ticket from Zurich to Lucerne, and can I book it online? As I've checked on several websites and they only suggest me the Swiss passes, which are quite expensive. I also want to go to Mount Pilatus, could you please suggest me how should I get there from Lucerne centre?

      If you had any experience of a day in Lucerne please advice me how should I plan it in a day time!

      Thank you for spending time reading my question! I am really appreciated your suggestions.

      Phoebe.

      Will be landing in zurich airport at 21:50 just as "transfer" to the next flight on 22:45 to Israel. The inbound flight comes from Warsaw, Poland (schengen block) probably to the main part of the airport and the next flight will be leaving from gate E bulding which is not the same building as the main area of arrival. It is "transfer" with Swiss. I have Polish citizenship and passport. How EXACTLY should I go from the place of getting off board the first flight, to the place of E gates, in just 30 minutes? does anyone can explain it as I've never been in this airport (or Zurich) before?
