This is an old world hotel that is trying to preserve what makes it so special while offering all the modern comforts as well. The location is superb. We are hikers and with the travel card that comes with the room, the wonderful local transit--trains, buses, and lifts--are all available to make superb hikes throughout the valley accessible.

without any shadow of a doubt the best hotel I have ever stayed in. it's like a cross between a film set and a fairytale. the location is breathtaking. the hotel has more charm than whole countries do. utterly exquisite. the hotel is old fashioned, but in a good way. the rooms were perfectly appointed and so unbelievably cosy. the...

My son and I spent the winter vacation 2015 at the Waldhaus in Sils. We had a fantastic stay. The hotel may not be the fanciest 5-stars with a grand spa (it's being built right now!) or a modern ski room, but it more than compensates with absolutely fantastic service. It all starts before you arrive. I often send my... More

We loved the retro mood with lots of original pieces of furniture and overall stylish ambiance. Service was attentive and kind and had that low profile mood that elder guests from another era give to the place. The rooms are comfortable and clean and we had a great balcony with a view onto the village.

The Engadin, the valley in which the Waldhaus is situated, claims to be the birthplace of winter tourism. If after 150-odd years you too want to know what the hype is all about, consider giving the Waldhaus a try. The managers (notably the descendants of the people who built this place) keep an oasis of warm winter luxury in what... More

Our previous visit to this hotel was great and we feared that our expectations this time might not be met. Yet, we enjoyed our stay just as much, had a different style / location of room which we liked just as much. Friendliness and perfect service, especially at dinner time, made our stay once again great.

If you dream of perfection, this is the place for you. The Waldhaus is the perfect hotel, in the perfect location to enjoy the beauty of Switzerland.

We spent several winter vacations at the Waldhaus between 1997 and 2001 when our children were young. This August we returned to the Waldhaus for the first time in 13 years, for a week without the children. It was lovely to be welcomed back after a long absence.

Just coming back from a wonderful stay at the Waldhaus: this house is boutiful with large, beautiful old rooms, various pleasant and cosy places, but not "overdone" with fashionable renovations.
