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,...

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...

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.
