Switzerland is an expensive country – no question about that. This is just a situation we have to live with. We are unfortunately not able simply to relocate our enterprise to the Eurozone, where everything is around 25% cheaper, in order to keep our hotel prices lower with reduced wages and costs. We strive to justify the higher price, however, with our social skills and specialist expertise, so that this is appreciated as added value. I thank you once again for rating our hotel positively. We will do everything we can to keep our service standards as high as possible.
