Reviewed 14 July 2013

Great location, around 10 mins from Chur station. Supermarkets are nearby. The apartment is large (whole ground floor). A large living room, bedroom, kitchen and toilet. The decoration is simple but lovely and cozy! No breakfast, but the host provide milk , bread, tea, coffee in kitchen. The host is friendly.Once we arrived, she gave us a map and told us the attractions and where to eat!
The only inconvenience is the bedroom is separated from the toilet and living room, you have to pass through the stair and lock the bedroom when going out.
Good value for money!

I stayed in 7 different hotels during my recent trip in switzerland, and I loved Backpacker Planaterra the most. I had a whole ground floor apartment to myself. Its huge, cosy, with a full kitchen and complete utensils. Location is great, just 8 minutes walk from railway station, and within old city. Meals are not included but the fridge is stocked with toast, butter, jam and milk, so its as good as providing breakfast, a huge convenience. The best thing about this place is its very kind and helpful landlady Jacqueline. She helped me get back the wallet I left at the hotel in Brig! I'm forever indebted to her:) I'd strongly recommend it to anyone/family seeking accommodation in Chur. You cannot find better value anywhere else.

Room Tip: Its a huge and beautully furnished apartment, complete with everything!

We were met at the station and taken to accommodation which far exceeded what we were expecting. It is more like a self contained flat, with separate living, dining and kitchen facilities. The bed was comfortable and it was great to be able to make breakfast, tea and coffee for ourselves. It was just a short walk from here to centre of the old town with good restaurants.

On arrival we were collected at the railway station by Jacqueline and taken to our rooms. Our accommodation was a very large bed room set up for a family (single bed, cot and double bed), a very well equipped kitchen, separate sitting room and bathroom. The setup is a little quirky as the bedroom is separated from the rest of the apartment by access to the front door and stairs, both of which are used by other tenants. A generous continental breakfast was left in the refrigerator. The building you see on the website is exactly what you see on arrival. The rooms we used, on the ground floor, were much older but spotlessly clean and comfortable. Jacqueline has an impressive supply of toiletries in the bathroom if you forget your own, plus a hairdryer, small clothes line and pegs.
This is a quiet neighbourhood, not far from the historic old part of Chur. It is an easy walk back to the railway station. Jacqueline was a very helpful host and provides a variety of local maps and books in the sitting room for those wanting to explore the town. No wifi available.
