I am not sure if you have ever stayed in a hostel, this is not a hostel. Clean rooms, Own Bathroom, TV, toiletries,room safe and breakfast. To be honest we were not expecting much, family of 5 last minute booking for 2 nights stay in Switzerland for 700chf's for 2 rooms!!! This was half the price almost of anything else... More

The hotel is located on a hill so it is an uphill walk from the station. Most of the other hotels (including 3 stars) have a pick up service from the station. The rooms are absolutely terrible, no double beds just some cheap furniture with broken side tables, no tea making facilities, no fridge in the room. It felt like... More

We stayed here only for one night so the room was OK for us (quite large and with a great balcony). There are some small problems if you'll use this hotel as a transit hotel - there is a small parking (so we had to park our car quite far away) and also the reception is closed after 23:00. In...

Clean and large rooms for what you pay. Great breakfast buffet. What we didn't like was the staff talking bad about guests that just left the table next to us. If you didn't like your guests; talk about it in private and don't let other guests hear you!

I stayed at this hotel during the last 2 WEF meetings where you have to reserve about 6 months before. All hotels at Davos are overpriced at this time of the year and offer terrible accomodation for unreasonably high prices. This hotel is at least very centrally located, has reasonable sized rooms and offers sauna, gym, pool and reasonable service.... More

I spent 12 days in this hotel and accommodation is far from the only thing it has to offer. Great central (but very quiet) location, close to everything in Davos you can think of, no matter the reason for your stay. The room itself was in every respect perfect, clean, comfortable, furnished with taste and practicality, affording lots of sunshine,... More

The first impression you get at this hotel is that it is old and not very fashionable, but it´s location is impeccable. The hotel itself is actually a old hospital. Still it has all the features that you want and need, plus a great breakfast and a very helpful staff. They helped us find a route to go trekking in... More

Large, modern, clean and simple rooms, our had also a balcony and great views of the mountains. The staff was very friendly and helpful in answering questions, finding activities and dining options. The whole family used the swimming pool for several hours in the evening, and was told to hold on as long as we wanted even if the pool... More

relatively expensive hotel for what it offers. must admit that there is a good breakfast, good location but the rooms are very basic. the service from the reception friendly in the basic level only. adding the all additional prices (room, city tax , parking) is rather expensive. it is too big, like in the hospital. Ah, and the SPA (vary... More

A young, lively & refreshing winter-concept for a relaxed & casual clientele, realized in just three weeks from a bunch of highly motivated young professionals from all over Europe, together with the staff of the art deco hotel Dellago, Melide. Mixing the experience of a very successful boutique hotel with the wild enthusiasm of graduates of one of Switzerland's hotel management colleges, a bright, cheerful winter 2007 is granted. ... more   less
