We stayed in the apartments, 200m from the hotel. They are modern, well appointed and roomy for 2. They have a kitchenette so you can do breakfast and lunch in the room if you wish. The lift and station is only 400m via a back road.

We visited the hotel in mid March for 2 nights. The hotel is old and renovated very nicely. The breakfast room is spectacular. The rooms are spacious and comfortable although the lighting could be better. The food was great. The service was also great - nothing was too much trouble. They have a lovely welllness and relaxation area downstairs. It...

We stayed for 1 night. Booked a double luxury room - which is quite spacious. Staff is helpful (smiles, allowing late check-out), on-site free parking. Good decent room, but pricey due to proximity to St. Moritz. Excellent breakfast. Old furniture - upholstry of the sofa was torn. We were surprised that the room cleaning had been done on the day...

We had an amazing time at this family managed hotel. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We brought along our infant twins and they made us feel very welcome. The hotel is very near St. Moritz and is well connected by train and bus. The hotel restaurant serves very good food. I recommend the fondue. The spa is also...

Stayed here for 4 nights in December. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is very beautiful with its antique charm and history. The breakfast room is very nice to behold and the food is pretty good. A small amount of hot food is provided but you can order a la carte breakfast too e.g. Omelette for an...

This magnificently renovated hotel is beautiful and ideally situated in the lovely and typical village of Samedan, far enough from the ugly St. Moritz yet close enough for those who believe St. Moritz is a must to go. The staff is competent, very kind and helpful, the rooms are big, with a charming chalet style but all comfort (fridg, jacuzzi,...
