30-hour days in switzerland

April 29th, 2009

Does the usual afternoon check-in, morning check-out hotel policy leave you feeling a little robbed? Wouldn’t it be nice to sleep until noon, just once in a blue moon?

The Victoria-Jungfrau in Switzerland has just introduced the ‘30 hour day.’ Guests now can stay 30 hours for each night they book – an extra six hours on top of a 24-hour day – and check in whenever they like.  In other words, arrive at 11 am on Saturday and stay until 5 pm on Sunday.  Or book three nights and you could arrive at 5 pm on Friday and leave at 11 am on Tuesday, effectively getting that fourth night for free.

This can be applied to all stays booked at rack rate and can also be combined with the Victoria-Jungfrau Classic offer (which includes full breakfast and dinner.) There’s no advance booking requirement or minimum stay, they just ask that you let the hotel know when to expect you.

Old World hospitality at its finest.  We love the idea of having much more time to chill in the vast, beautiful spa or the vast, beautiful Alpine setting of this luxe resort.  And if we were going in, say, June, we would surely take advantage of the mountain bikes that the hotel keeps on hand for any guest who wants to head for the hills, free of charge.
