Honours for Qatari luxury hotel

The general manager of Qatari owned luxury hotel The Hotel Schweizerhof Bern, Michael Thomann, has been named "Hotelier of the Year" by the leading Swiss business magazine Bilanz.

After the reopening in June 2011, the Schweizerhof turned to the challenge of establishing a competitive positioning in the market successfully increasing the hotel’s rankings from 21st to 11th place in the country’s league table of Switzerland’s best city hotels.
