Swiss Luxury Hotel to Allow Guests to Settle their Bills in Bitcoin
Starting 1st May 2019, guests of the Swiss luxury hotel, The Dolder Grand, will be able settle their bills in Bitcoin. Thanks to the new mobile app inapay, developed by inacta AG, cryptocurrencies get effortlessly converted into Swiss Franc or Euro as soon as the payment has been completed.
The 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 hotel doesn’t have to worry about exchange rate risks or managing cryptocurrencies.
"The wellbeing of our guests is front and center 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.
