Discover our Boutique & Design Hotels offers
If we say Boutique Hotel we mean it. And charge less.
Every one of us knows the classification boutique hotel, but what exactly are the criteria?
Let's start with the name: The word boutique comes from the French and means something like "small shop". However, the first boutique hotels did not originate in France, but in the USA. In the 1980s, when the new hotel classification was created, the collective term boutique hotels was understood to mean individual, rather small, personally managed and often luxurious hotels.
In the meantime, however, the label boutique hotel has been restaged. Finally, the big hotels also wanted to stage their unique character and began to call themselves Design and Art Hotels as a countermovement. However, small, personally run hotels that stand out for their high level of individuality are still called boutique hotels today.
If you are also looking for that special something and value a well thought-out concept, you are guaranteed to find it on hotelcard.com. Dozens of design, lifestyle and boutique hotels in Switzerland offer you their rooms there with 30-50% discounts. Treat yourself to individuality at its best. We wish you much pleasure.

Discover new places far away from mass tourism
"Since I own a Hotelcard, we go on excursions much more often again and treat ourselves to the small luxury of an overnight stay in a hotel. Switzerland has so many exciting corners and with Hotelcard, we are always discovering new destinations far away from mass tourism.”

A great thing for hotels
“As a hotelier, I appreciate the model. Unlike other booking portals, Hotelcard does not take commission on bookings. Hotelcard members are welcome guests at our hotel and are a real asset, especially in the low season”

Win-win situation for all involved
"I would like to thank the whole Hotelcard team for their great commitment. In the meantime, our children no longer live at home and we use the Hotelcard offer very often for short holidays. A great thing and I think it really is a win-win situation for everyone. Thank you very much and have fun and success searching and finding nice partner hotels. See you in the next inspiring newsletter."
