Schönes großes Zimmer, gute Lage, ein supernetter Gastgeber, Naschis auf dem Kopfkissen. Sehr empfehlenswert. Wir kommen wieder!!!
Definitely a good choice if your looking something in the city of Winterthur with some green around you!! there you can closely find a forest to enjoy!! The room is well size and clean. Roberto is a nice guy who makes your stay really pleasant. I can definitely recommend to stay in Oberwinterthur.
We recently spent several nights at Roberto's charming house, and we could not have been happier. He is a generous and kind host, and we plan to stay again next year. The location is brilliant. The village is charming, and there are many shops close by. The train is just a few hundred metres away and takes you to Zurich and the airport and also to the main precinct of Winterthur. There is a bus there also that takes you into Winterthur.
Roberto's house dates back many centuries, and he has renovated it very well. The bed is great, and the bathroom is new and well appointed.
Roberto is very willing to give you all the info you need to enjoy a stay here. We shared a bottle of wine with him this year, and look forward to doing so again next year. Thank you Roberto.
My husband and I have spent 2 days at Roberto's place in Oberwinterthur.
We had an amazing experience we loved the location and the house was absolutely perfect, we slept in the most comfortable bed ever! Roberto's house is is located in the middle of a very picturesque village very quite and convenient, it is absolutely beautiful and such an interesting place to visit. Roberto and Ursula are very friendly and perfect hosts, they had spare bicycles which we borrowed to go around. We spent some very valued time with them chatting over a coffe or tea...
We cant wait to be there again.
Roberto and Ursi have been the most hospitable hosts for me and my little son. They gave us all the information we needed to enjoy our vacation. I would always like to return to stay in this warm and charming home and will remember our vacation with a smile in my face.
Roberto was a terrific host -- the room was comfortable, and light and spacious, and I was happy to have a computer available to me. Roberto went out of the way to be hospitable. He is truly that world citizen, (and he spoke English well, which was great for me!) and it was a pleasure staying there.

About the Host, Roberto
Slightly chaotic vegetarian refusing to accept the world as it is today. Still regarding the future with hope - despite the often depressing facts. World-Citizen with strong local roots.
