We enjoyed out stay at this excellent hotel! The room was very good, the staff were very friendly, and the breakfast was outstanding. The cable car pass (which covered the funicular to Muottas Muragl and the cable car to Diavolezza, in addition to several other cable cars in the St Moritz area) was a huge bonus.

We enjoyed our stay in this tastefully renovated hotel full of tradition. All members of the staff were very friendly, helpful, attentiv and cordial, especially Filippo and friends:-). We appreciated our spacious room with the well smelling Swiss pine wood furniture. Breakfast and dinner were excellent!

The hotel is located perfectly for the place to stay if, like us, you were taking the Bernina Express to St Moritz from Tirano to catch the Glacier Express to Zermatt. Our alpine type room was a nice size but the bed was 2 single beds pushed together to make a queen. Adequate but tight for a 6'2" man and... More

A 5 minute walk uphill from train station with beautiful views to Muottas Muragl. Large comfortable room. Lovely breakfast in elegant dining room. Nice bar. Best of all are the friendly, helpful, efficient staff. Free pass for local binoculars and cable cars. This hotel is excellent value and only 10 minutes from St Moritz.

We stayed here for two nights and can thoroughly recommend this hotel. The welcome was warm and the service efficient. The receptionist knew we had bikes with us and arranged to store them in the ski room. The room was spacious with views over the valley and the bed was extremely comfortable. There is a bar area where you can... More

We were part of a weeklong bike race and just wanted a place to stay. This hotel was great in every respect. Comfortable in a nice little town and less than half the price of St Moritz up the road. The restaurant served lovely food and good wine. Because we had to leave very early with the race, the hotel... More

I really was not expecting how wonderful this hotel is. You can see from the pictures how beautiful it is but what the pictures don't show is how great the staff are. From the first contact until we said goodbye they were welcoming and wanting to make sure everything was perfect. They would anticipate what you might need and offer... More

Nice hotel. Nice rooms. Be sure to register kids when making reservation, charge is the same as an adult at check-in. Maximum room occupancy is 3 people. Sofa-beds are small and only for one person. Small tables for breakfast buffet. This Hotel is in Samedan which is a different location from St. Moritz. It's like 15 min away and is... More

Quite big room which can accommodate a family of 4. Big bathroom as well. The hotel is close to the station and is just 3 minutes walk from the station. The location is very quiet and an ideal place to relax.
