The Hotel Steinbock is a gem. In a great location, with nice rooms. We saved by taking one with the bathroom down the hall. You have access to the Grand Hotel facilities of the Hotel Walther just across the lawn. Quiet, comfortable and welcoming. After a few days of hiking hut to hut this felt like pampering. We will be back. A nice hotel in a relaxing town.

Room Tip: A wide range of rooms from excellent suites with half board to a basic room with the bathroom down t...

Stayed at the Steinbock for a week with family and mother hiking. Wonderful hotel. Perfect. Outstanding local food. Very attentive owners and staff that are always making sure everything is first class. Great location in the middle of town with excellent restaurants. And benefits from luxurious pool, hot tub and spa for after hiking relaxation. Excellent base from which to hike the Engadin - Bernini, Segantini, Boval, Diavolezza, St Moritz, Corvatsch, Piz Nair and we even made it by car through the Vereina train tunnel to Klosters in under 90 mins.

Hotel Steinbock offers exceptional value for money. It is an old style Swiss property with shutters and an eighteenth century building with historic murals on. I was in the attic in a clean and comfortable room with ancient beams running across the ceiling. The staff are friendly and speak excellent English. The restaurant serves delicious local specialties (with a vegetarian menu) and a wide selection of wine (but no cider...). The wifi was strong and free. Breakfast is a simple continental but the quality was excellent and there was a good choice.

Secure covered parking is available for 15 Francs a night. Steinbock guests have access to the five star facilities of the Hotel Walther next door, which include a huge, heated pool and a really luxurious spa area with steam room, multiple saunas and a solarium. You have to cross the garden to get there, but this is a great perk.

The town centre is only 800m walk away and there are other restaurants and bar a few steps away.

Room Tip: Room 48 a lovely twin room is in the attic

I visited the restaurant of this lovely and cute restaurant and had a blast.. Served from really professional, kind and smart servants, delicious food, just everything was perfect. So perfect that i decided to come back as a hotel guest. This was about 10 years ago ! And now i was there for 6 or seven times.

The 3* "plus" hotel is really welll located, you will be picked up from railwaystation for free, you will have nice people to talk to, reception is always there for you and the owners Mr and Mrs Walther will be always happy to talk to the guests and spread the spirit of being superb hosts...

They have rooms from small and not costly to really big and having a price that is related to swiss prices:)

If you decide to take half board you will be very happy. They German chef is a magician and the place is so nice to sit and eat and enjoy the atmosphere, cloth napkins and start talking to other guests.

Moreover there is fresh newspaper to read everyday in the lobby, you may use the pool and sauna area of the 5 * hotel just 30 steps to walk to which belongs to the same owner.

To make it short: this hotel is not a hotel, it is more likely to come back to good neighbours who invite you for a stay and the staff is really kind. Use the day to climb the mountains, take a walk or just sit somewhere in the garden of the hotel and dream about the view to the mountains just in front of you.

Oh, ... and make sure to visit the cinema in Pontresina. It is a delight, really old and located in a school.

Room Tip: 43 quiet and big

Steinbock stay is an affordable and yet relaxing one especially easy to fit into your schedule if you happen to be taking the Bernina Express. Pontresina is a good place to stop and relax along the Bernina Express belt. What i did, is to call Steinbock about the train timing of Bernina express i'm taking, and from where im departing. They got all the time schedule calculated so they know what time your train will arrive and they just fetch you at the station. Car transport services are provided free of charge for the first time. During our stay we also visited Muotta Muragl, an incredible mountain alp view of the Swiss alps. In the morning we had a generous spread for breakfast and even went for Aqua Aerobics classes in their Wellness center. Their wellness center facilities are also very comprehensive, from Oxygen room, sauna, jaccuzzi and all kind of affordable swiss massage and spa.

Definitely a stay pack with many activities to do, you will not feel bored staying with them!

Room Tip: they dont have an elevator. If you have elderly guest or have many luggages, request for a lower lev...
