Need help with B&B/hotels/apt

I am traveling by car from Zurich to St. Moritz area, Ascona, Interlaken,
Luzern and back to Zurich. Please help me find affordable sleeping arrangements. I would prefer out of the way B & B's or small apt's.
We hope to stay in Interlaken area for 4-5 days. (June 19-29)

Re: Need help with B&B/hotels/apt

I don't know who is on line today, but before you get eaten by the EF wolves, I'll remind you that this is NOT a site which is primarily set up to enable folk to avoid doing their homework.

You have no Info in your profile, no Introduction and you want advice. I'll leave this on here, but I advise you to get your post count up from 'one' in other areas of the Forum before too long. If you are taking a holiday from Zürich, you have presumably been here for a while and might be able to answer one of the many, many questions from other members.

Have a lovely day.

Tons of good and independent travel advice available on the Internet...maybe a good place to start?

I am sure that you are now busy searching the internet.

Here are a couple of sites to search.

Pennyj glad you are planning to travel in our beautiful Switzerland. How about giving a short introduction of yourself - I'm sure you'll find it pays dividends here. Great links given above.

This place is on the edge of St Moritz, very airy, ask for Mr Glimaja. All he charged us was a five minute bout of slap and tickle with my wife taking photographs on his old Polaroid camera. Very reasonable, I'm sure you'll agree.


This house is in the centre of Ascona, and is owned by a lovely lady called Mrs Onisco. She was happy to let us stay there for a bag of M&Ms and a quick fumble in the bushes.


This hotel is located in Interlaken. It is a very special hotel as it only has one room, which costs 5 Polish Zloty per night. The owner, a Mr Jez, is very particular on that point: one must pay in Zloty. Still, it's a bargain, as I'm sure you'll agree.



When we visit Luzern, we always stay under this bridge. As long as the police don't catch you, it's free:


Unfortunately, there is nowhere for you to stay in Zurich as the hosting of foreigners in the city was forbidden by Papal bull at the end of April. The Stadtrat is still debating whether Papal bulls are actually valid in the Zwinglian city of Zurich, but until the legal situation is established for certain, you'll have to sleep in a skip or something.

I hope this helps.

Thor's Cave has moved to Luzern? A shame as I quite liked it where it was.
Still this is less surprising than your sense of humour going South
