I was asked about the Christiania by my sister who is going to visit Gstaad. I prefaced my remarks by saying that I had not been there in many years. I have stayed with the Geddah-Nopper family Hotel Christiania at least 5 times and always found the service impeccable, the cuisine worthy of Michelin stars, the rooms quite adequate, the... More

My wife, daughter and I stayed for one night at the Christiana hotel in Gstaad over the European Easter break. We were able to rent a two room suite at a last minute rate of about CHF 320 per night. The hotel is located next to the Coop shopping center with one side of the hotel looking out into the... More

The hotel is located on the main street just a short walk from the city center. Pleasantly surprised us with a very homely atmosphere. Accommodation We were in the apartment, which was very spacious. Lyse you have to jet ski bus or car, but it is the same in all local hotels, because the slopes are a bit out of... More

We booked hotel Christiania in February 2012 for 2 nights in August. We selected this hotel first because of its central location within Gstaad and second because of the positive comments on trip advisor. The afternoon before our departure, we received a phone call informing us that our booking was transferred to another hotel because customers wanted to extend their... More

This hotel offers very homely atmosphere and a great place to stay in Gstaad. Its location is just ideal with good view of city, Tennis courts and the valley. Location is very near to the railway/bus station which makes it easily accessible. Hotel staff was very friendly and offered homemade breakfast every morning. This place adds to your fun time...

We stayed for two nights in this ideally located hotel during the Crédit Agricole Suisse Open Gstaad end of July. The room was very clean and comfortable with a warm cosy atmosphere. Breakfast buffet was terrific! Very nice choice of Swiss cheeses and tasteful omelettes. We had our coffee in the morning sun on the small terrasse in front of... More

I stayed in this beautiful stylish intimate luxury chalet hotel on the pedestrianised main street in the centre of Gstaad, right by the mountain railway station, Perhaps its most unusual feature is that the much travelled, cultured proprietor himself personally serves his guests, with the help of his courteous staff. Watch him prepare the Steak Tartar to the exact liking... More

"The customer is king" at this small, family-run hotel. Guests are treated like royalty: from the courteous reception, to the clean, comfortable rooms, to the exquisite restaurant. I've stayed here twice, and have been impressed with the warmth and attentiveness of the owners and staff. Hotel is centrally located in Gstaad-- a downside being that street-facing rooms may be a...

We returned to the Christiania Hotel, having stayed there many years ago. By Swiss standards the Christiana is well priced and delivers a very comfortable room and an expansive breakfast. This is not a grand hotel - it is built in the Swiss Chalet style and furnished accordingly. It is a homely and comfortable establishment that delivers. We looked at... More

We like to travel by rail. Arriving in Geneva airport from Newark, USA, one can be on the train within an hour for a scenic ride lasting about 2:45 with one change in Montreux. At the airport, we checked our luggage to Gstaad which the hotel staff delivered to our room later. We arrived via the Goldenpass train at Gstaad... More
