The benefit of stars

In Swiss tourism, holiday apartments, guest rooms and bed and breakfast form an optimal complement to the hotel industry. The Swiss Tourism Federation manages the official Swiss holiday apartment and guest room classification. More than 28’000 properties are classified and have acquired between one and a maximum of five stars (with the additional superior categories). The quality is regularly monitored by random inspections.

There is a specific classification system with five categories for holiday apartments, guest rooms and bed and breakfast respectively. In each category the must criteria, a given number of points and the overall minimal requirements have to be met.
