Beautiful rooms with large space, well equipped with everything that might be needed during a stay. We loved to be here with my wife. The breakfast was also very good served in a hall, that might be a place of classical musical events at other times. The ambiance of the location is so pleasant that I absolutely recommend to stay...

Our stay in the Hotel bernina (1 night) was short but actually we were quite happy to leave. Check in: At our arrival the receptionist did not even welcome us or show us our room. A very cold welcoming. The room was nice but some small things were missing (like cussions for the deck chairs), shower ("only" bath tube) or...

We stayed here for 3 nights. Here is the break down: Location: Great location within walking distance to the bank, Coop supermarket, train station, and bus stop. Only a 7 minute train ride to Pontresina and a 15 minute train ride to St. Moritz. Generally less expensive than hotels in St. Moritz for what you get so may be more...

Incredible value, in charming old historical building, yet with all modern facilities and very comfortable. Fantastic friendly staff at the reception. Ideally located to visit Engadina, at the crossing the valleys, in a very quiet place.

As soon as we arrived and we're greeted by the friendly and efficient staff I was impressed. We were upgraded to a suite as the hotel was fairly full with group travellers. The hotel us beautifully appointed and the breakfast superb. They make their own preserves and I had to buy their fig jam. The bar was intimate and the...

I just want to start off with a heartfelt thank you to all the staff at the hotel Bernina. I travelled here as my husband had been in a motorcycle accident in the Swiss Alps and had been hospitalised just up the road from this hotel. I booked online for two nights and upon checking in (after 14 hours travelling)...

Perfect stopping point if you're taking the Bernina Express. We'd read that Samaden is a more interesting town than St Moritz for a night. The hotel is 5 minutes walk from the train station, and the town is small and quaint. Local eatery is Rene's Raviolis. Eat in the bar area for homemade local food. Town market was Tuesday morning...
