We had no idea what to expect when we arrived at The Proposal this past week. The pictures online do not do it justice. The Proposal is an awesome, one of a kind experience that is not to be missed in Zurich! Jeremie, Raffaela and Lenny are the most wonderful, friendly hosts you could ever imagine! The two rooms are...

We spend 2 nights in the proposal. We did not sleep in the room, but in their bus, it was really a fantastic adventure, like diving into a completley different world, far away from everything. Fantastic place to relax and dream. great & friendly hosts!

Stayed a couple of nights early June at The Proposal. It was a very memorable stay. If you rather not stay in a traditional style hotel but prefer to see something new then this is an excellent choice. The rooms are a little on the small side but they were clean and stylish decorated. The staff is very friendly and...

Conveniently located, nestled in a quiet courtyard not far from Zurich’s city center, The Proposal offers so much more than any regular accommodation: It’s a gallery and a bed & breakfast at the same time. This concept invites the guests to interact with the exhibition and literally spend a night at the gallery. The Proposal team was attentive, friendly and...

My boyfriend booked this as a surprise for me, and what an excellent surprise! So unique, both spaces were comfortable, the beds were hotel quality, the space was clean and so interesting. We arrived late, after 10pm, we were met promptly and made to feel welcome. The space is a little hidden, but this is beneficial in the long run,...

We very much enjoyed the Proposal, we love the concept of residing (comfortably) in art. The welcome was very warm, the breakfast delicious and prepared with affection. The whole place was just full of positive energy. We do hope that you will continue, we will be back that’s for sure. Joost & Sophie, Geneva, Switzerland

Stayed here for 3 nights and had a chance to sleep in and experience best of both worlds in the gallery and the van. Even though we have never met Lenny before, there's somehow a special feeling of staying over with a friend. From the first contact, he has been helpful with answering all questions and queries promptly. Breakfast was...

We loved staying at The Proposal. Lenny and Jeremie, the gallery's owners, have mastered hospitality; they make you feel genuinely and personally welcome. I agree with the other reviews that say that it feels like staying at a close friend's house, but with more autonomy. They are helpful with tips about visiting Zurich, including restaurants and nightlife. Some practical details...

I stayed here only for a night as it was only available for a night in May 2012. A unique B&B inside an Art Gallery. Location wise: It's in a quiet area, not in the center but quite quick to get there if you want to. Here you will meet 2 enthusiastic owner who treated me like an old friend....

My wife and I spent one night in Zurich last month and couldn't be happier with The Proposal. Of the two rooms, we opted for the Bus, which, as advertised, was unlike any night's stay we've ever experienced; it was comfortable, cozy and surprisingly quiet. Lenny and Jeremie, the 2 owners of The Proposal, treated us like family the second...

“We loved the van!”

“We stayed in the inside room, which I'd recommend if you have a lot of luggage. There was a very comfortable queen sized bed, a full-sized mirror, a lamp, an I-POD dock, hangers and hooks, and two windows.”

“There are only two rooms: One in the bus and one in the Gallery. If you have a big suitcase or need more space, then opt for the Gallery room.”
