From the room, the breakfast and particularly the spa: the views are just magnificent! Particularly from the spa, where you can roam in wild forest between sauna sessions. The restaurant was more average with standard regional and international food. The rooms are nice and spatious. Particularly worth noting: all staff were friendly and happy to help. Hotel also engages in...

The area is beautiful, perfect for hikes, to climb the Saentis, and to enjoy wonderful nature when escaping urban life. You drive up the valley to reach Schwagalp and there is this massive building which regrettably tarnishes the area. It just does not fit there and regrettably is another example of some "progressive politician" and "oh-so-creative and modern architect" trying...

I was very impressed about the saentis hotel. Rooms are brand new and very modern. Service is great and very friendly. The hotel is well suited for both business as well holidays. Visiting the Saentis peak is really recommended.

Saw to hotel at a recent visit and liked the modern setting. Decided to come back and stay overnight with an. Overseas visitor. Regrettably when I arrived 20 minutes before checking in time We were lectured about the hotel operation which would not allow check in before 3 pm which was unnecessary and a turn of how it was handled....

I did not choose this hotel, rather it was booked by the leader of our group. Architecture not for everyone - heavy on the concrete and it has an incongruous appearance in this otherwise bucolic mountainside. But the hotel perfectly fine. Food delicious albeit expensive and the rooms new, tidy and with good views of the mountains. We were there...

Only stayed 1 night in atrocious weather. Good breakfast, but other meals average. Hotel still smelt new everywhere, but not pleasantly. Not a fan of the open plan glass bathroom. No chance to use the spa area. Staff friendly and waiter recommended a lovely Spanish white, Oro de Castilla, which I will be tracking down. Lovely colours and furnishing with...

We liked the whole concept of this place, i.e. hotel, restaurant, rope way, wellness center and the facility of top of Säntis mountain are extremely well coordinated. We stayed “Säntis das hotel” for two days and we enjoyed very much. Our room had a wide panorama window, through which we could look up the mountain and look over the meadow...

We've stayed for one night in this hotel because we got it as a birthday present. The Hotel just opened and is in a very good condition with cosily rooms and nice furniture. The wellness part is also new and nice with special wooden sauna etc. But the "relaxation room" is a little small and unfortunateley, there were imho to...

I was stay there three nights for meeting. The room is large with separate toilet & bathroom completed with very nice organic soap & shampoo; the window's view is facing the mountain or trees. The only bad thing is the room is not completed with kettle or coffee/tea for complimentery as I believe that since it located on the mountain,...

Very characteristic place @ 1500 meters asl. Old building that will be destroyed to give space to a new one. Good food. Very nice experience on the cable car that brings you up to 2500meters asl, great view.
