Chesa Silva. A place where a weekend or a holiday could be relaxing and beautiful. That is what I thought.... WRONG! I felt from the first minute when walking in the door that we were not welcome. Sense of arrival? Smile? ... Nothing, except that the lady of the house was very grumpy when asked how we could get to... More

Sankt Moritz area is populated by many snobs without any sense of style let alone measure. Engadin however is really really nice and deserves multiple visits. Finding a good guesthouse at fair price and without the "population" mentioned above is therefore paramount. Chesa Silva is the place. Definitely démodé but super functional, it offers the perfect stay for those who... More

St. Moritz, a posh area as can expected is very but very difficult to find cheap hotels for under CHF 180.00 unless going to hostels or campings... I mean, under CHF 180.00 for a double to triple room obviously not single room... This small hotel is located in Silvaplana, which is not that far from St. Moritz if travelling with... More

We chose the place as the only available for our trip dates in the area and loved this hotel. We were a large family with young kids and grandma on our way from Switzerland to Italy seeking for one night accomodation in a beautiful place so our point of view might differ from yours. THE GOOD The view is amazing.... More

Area around St Moritz is expensive, but Chesa Silva is a great find for budget appartment/hotel. We arrived very late (almost 2am) without informing the hotel. but the staff was very kind to leave notes and keys at the lobby for us to pick up, very thoughtful. the hotel is conviniently located right next to the lake, and only a...

We booked this hotel because the ones we wanted to go to where fully booked that weekend. While it's dated and basic, it was clean and it served its purpose.The staff were friendly, too. Breakfast was included in the rate, too. Be aware a double room has two separate beds only. It's located at walking distance from the water sports'... More

We booked this hotel through Active Hotels. I was a little apprenhensive but on arrival pleasantly surprised. The hotel is about 10 km from the centre of St. Moritz, but there is a bus service that runs very frequently and is very reasonable. The hotel is a two minute walk from the bus stop. We were greeted by big smiles... More
