The hotel location and condition of the room was good but the room had no air conditioning just a fan, I guess this will be ok in winter but in the summer at 90 degrees is brutal, make sure that when booking a room at this hotel it has a/c since is not specified in the description, also hotel is located behind the train yard so it gets real loud with the windows open...
Gabriel, us1 night family trip
Exceptional 10.0
The best stay we had in last 20 days of the trip in Europe. We had stay in London and we paid over $800 a night and a hotel was great, but compared to what we paid for both the location Hotel banana city was the best for the money. It is worth every penny we spend on the room. Very clean Hotel and room, great service, breakfast was really good better than any other hotels. If only thing I have to recommend would be portable air condition. So that any guests who have any condition because of heat they can be accommodated. Other than that I would recommend this hotel to anyone who is going to be staying in Zurich Switzerland.
