Travellers' Choice 2018 Winner
Certificate of Excellence
Nira Alpina, a 4* Superior hotel situated in the Swiss ski resort of St. Moritz, is connected to the Corvatsch cable car station via a private walkway. Within our hotel, winter or summer, you'll find warm, heartfelt service and a cool, quirky style - we're not a typical St. Moritz hotel. You'll sense an ambiance that's buzzy, bordering on Bohemian...

We stayed at the Nira Alpina because it was an SPG property and unfortunately no longer is.... however I highly recommend the hotel because of the excellent staff and ambiance. It is very modern with a picturesque rooftop bar at the base of Corvatsch, perfect for a drink after a

The five of us had an excellent stay at this property. We had reserved two rooms with points with Marriott Rewards. I had emailed the hotel in advance and they had a shuttle waiting for us at the St. Moritz train station when we arrived. It was about a 15 minute ride to the ho

is there a shuttle service to and from the airport we could book
Hi Jane, We do not have a shuttle service from the airport, however, we could assist in booking a transfer for you. A good alternative is indeed the train from Zürich airport to the train station in St. Moritz and from there we can pick-up. Kindly let us know if you have any more queries. Warm regards, Claudia Pronk General Manager

I am interested in staying at this hotel in mid-January and have the following questions: - Is the local skiing connected with St. Moritz? If not, is there transportation to St. Moritz (we will have a car, wondering if there is a shuttle)? - Is it the same ski pass to ski the local mountain and St. Moritz? - Are discounted ski passes available is we stay for 3 nights? - How are the ski conditions this year?
Dear Billygood, The ski area next to the hotel is called "Corvatsch" and this is a really nice skiing area. This is not really connected to the St. Moritz/Corviglia ski area but there is a local bus leaving directly in front of the hotel to this skiing area. Alternatively you can also go by car. It is about 10 minutes away from the hotel. Yes, for both those areas there is the same skipass. Yes, for stays of more than 2 nights, there are discounted skipasses available. The special price is CHF 35 per person per day and the conditions are that it has to be purchased for the whole duration of the stay and is available when a stay is minimum 2 nights. The conditions are good in both areas despite the fact that it is mostly artificial snow. We had early snow in October and this has become a great base. As from then it has been very cold during the nights so the snow machines could do their work. For tomorrow and Thursday there is snow expected. I hope to have been of help and do not hesitate to contact me if you require any more information or would like to make a booking. Warm regards, Claudia Pronk General Manager

Im trying to decide if i should book half board? I wondered whether dinner was a set menu each night ? whether there was a free choice to choose anything you wished? Are you restricted to certain restaurants or dining times? I also would like a Sunny Balcony do they exist in the winter months(i am a non skier and would like to sit whilst hubby is skiing)
Dear Dawnrams I must honestly admit that I only see your question right now. So sorry for my late answer. It is nice that so many Tripadvisor members have already replied to you in the meantime. With regard to the half board, I have to inform you that in winter we have a slightly different set up than in summer. The price is also CHF 55 for a 3 course meal. In winter we do make a daily changing half board menu with 2 starters, 2 main courses and 2 desserts to choose from. The difference between summer is also that in winter we require that half board is being taken for the full duration of your stay. We serve the half board in Stars restaurant and also have a choice to take the Cheese fondue or Raclette as part of the half board menu in our Pitchalain apres ski hut, in front of the hotel. With regards to enjoying the sunshine from your balcony, it is true what everybody has written. All rooms are facing the same direction and all balconies and terraces have seating arrangements so you should be able to enjoy the sunshine whilst your husband is skiing. I also recommend to go up with the cable car at least once to enjoy the amazing view from the Corvatsch. We hope to see you this winter! Claudia Pronk & Team

Wie ist es mit dem Abendessen, gibt es einen festen Termin oder mehrere Sitzungen ? Danke für eine kurze Info.
Lieber Franz H. Wie schön, dass Sie schon so viele Antworten von unseren Gästen bekommen haben. Alle haben recht, es gibt keine feste Sitzungen. Das Restaurant is geöffnet ab 18.30 Uhr und bis 21.30 Uhr und am Empfang oder beim Frühstück nehmen wir gerne Ihre Tischreservierung entgegen. Wir können keine Feste Tische (Fenstertische) reservieren und unser Restaurantleiter macht die Einteilung. Wir freuen uns auf Sie. Mit freundlichen Grüssen Claudia Pronk General Manager

Do you have ski storage avaiable at Nira Alpina?
Dear Anelize, Yes, we have a ski room available in the hotel and per room there is an individual locker to store your skis and shoes individually. This locker also contains heated shoe dry racks to put your shoes on and find them back the next day dry and warm. Please let me know if there is anything else we can do for you.
