The hotel was very nice. Rooms are older but very clean and charming. The elevator is very old but a great throwback to another era. The rooms were nice sized, especially for european hotels. The bathrooms are very large. The staff were very friendly and efficient. The only problem was that I went for a walk early (4:30 a.m.) and...

We had an upgraded room, 303, which was lovely. Breakfast was fabulous, the servers are charming and the food is varied and plentiful. Great espresso! The hotel is a short but uphill walk from the train station. You can ask for a hotel shuttle, which we did due to rain. Good location to escape the prices of St Moritz, but...

Very nice, very friendly and professional hotel. good restaurant, the prices a bit high, such as mineral water for Italians standards, but in line with others in Austria Mountain hotels found. Anyway I hope to return.

The Bernina is an historic hotel (1865) with great bones that is kept in excellent condition. It is located some kilometers outside St Moritz. There are lifts and trails locally, but that was not on our itinerary so I have no personal experience there. We visited in mid April, which turns out to be (very) low season. Visitors are few...

Amazing views, especially from the beautiful breakfast room. Ideally located for easy access into St Moritz. Great jacuzzi baths and good size rooms. Pizza restaurant downstairs has fabulous pizzas too! Definitely one of my favourite Swiss hotels to stay in

I could not comment on the Bernina without initially commenting on the professional and amiable staff. Never have I met such genuinely lovely people. Stefano was always happy to engage in conversation and carried out his job to the highest standard. He even provided restaurant recommendation from places he had been to before, and they were some of the best...

Bernina feels rich in history and sprit of alpine resorts of the "old days" but doesn't quite live up to modern hotel standards and it's price (USD 400 for a double room on a weekend in February). The hotel seems to be running on a tight budget, saving on electricity and furnishings, and feels a bit lifeless despite the high...

Very comfortable bed, clean, very good breakfast. The hotel staff are helpful with information and hospitable. Breads and croissants are freshly baked with home made jams of all sorts. Hot breakfasts are individually prepared for each guest. Good cheese selection and freshly brewed coffee too.

What you experience is more than staying at a hotel. Christina and all of the hotel staff make you feel like you never left home. Food is great, it is very comfortable to go to St Moritz which is only 10 minutes away by the city bus.

One of our many memorable experiences from Switzerland...it was May 2014, before the beginning of the European Holiday season. We were driving down from Austria to Milan for our cruise and decided to stay overnight in St Moritz since the drive and the place was far too beautiful for just a day trip and drive through. We landed up at...
