Just back from staying 3 nights, the location is fabulous with the village being as beautiful as ever, the rooms are comfortable and spacious. The food is very good too. I can't believe there's a friendlier place to stay anywhere in the country. Can't wait to be back again.

The hotel is quiet, clean and comfortable. Its location is ideal if you are planning a hiking trip in Engadin. Internet facilities are great; there are even laptops that you can use for free. Above all, the staff is very friendly, especially when it comes to special requests.

We stayed for 2 nights (in room 17 on top floor facing the village with a picture postcard balcony view of snowy rooftops and snow filled mountains). The room was spotlessly clean and spacious with modern contemporary high quality furnishings. Free fast Wifi. Great well lit bathroom with walk in shower and toiletries. The 'soft close' drawers on the bedside... More

Very comfortable hotel in this small town in the Engadin - clean, modern rooms, friendly, competent staff and very good food (dinner and breakfast) in dining room. Since we were hiking, food was available for us to make box lunch for our day away. I highly recommend this hotel.

A wonderful place for alpine walking with a comfortable and hospitable hotel to return to! We only stayed one night on our way through from France to Austria but will be back. We were greeted by a very charming English speaking host and shown to a very comfortable,modern room on the top floor with a wonderful view. We ate in... More

This is a lovely hotel towards the top of a very pretty village. We had a type A room, with a small sitting area outside and a view of the mountains on the other side of the valley. The room was a good size, with simple but stylish design, especially in the bathroom with its grey, black and silver. The... More

We were hiking in the mountains above Ardez and there was too much snow in the pass to continue to the SAC Hut Tuoi, so we made our way down to Ardez. We were soaked to the skin, muddy and unhappy! Fortunately, the Alvetern Hotel had two double rooms available and we arrived on their doorstep to the MOST wonderful... More

Though it is a UNESCO World Heritage site, the town of Ardez isn't widely known. That means it's not overrun with tourists and remains a gem for those who love the mountains and hiking and historic towns. The stenciled house exteriors are remarkable, and what gained it the UNESCO status, but the setting is also spectacular. You look out at... More

I chose this town based on it's driving distance from Munich and Interlaken. And I chose this hotel because it had a good Internet rate and decent reviews. But I had no idea it would be my favorite stop on a ten day trip from Munich to Geneva nor that its owner would be so earnest and endearing. The room... More
