Swiss Hotel Accepts Bitcoin Payments

A Zurich based luxury hotel is the first in Switzerland to offer the option to use Bitcoin to pay for accommodation, food and beverages or spa treatments.

This is made possible with the introduction of «inapay», a mobile app facilitating the payment process, so The Dolder Grand doesn’t have to worry about exchange rate risks or managing cryptocurrencies.

“The wellbeing of our guests is front and centre in everything we do. Many of the improvements in our service in recent years were made possible by advances in technology. As we believe Bitcoin is here to stay, it only seems natural to offer more choices in the payment process“, explains André Meier, Director of Finance at Dolder Hotel AG.

The new payment option was part of a pilot project with inacta AG and will go live 1st May. Roger Darin, Head of Crypto Assets at inacta AG, elaborates: «Bitcoin will establish itself as a means of payment, both, internationally and in Switzerland. Thanks to inapay, all kind of businesses have an easy way of accepting cryptocurrencies without the obstacles traditionally associated with it».
