This is a very nice old fashioned grand hotel where the owners take great care to offer a personal service. The hotel is kept in perfect condition. Beware that all the rooms are very different: some are very old style while others are more modern. Most rooms on the higher floors offer fantastic views. The hotel has a frequent shuttle... More

This is an exquisite place, not at all a typical five-star hotel. Following more recent architectural interventions, one can enjoy beautiful juxtapositions of old and new, e.g., the main entry and its overhanging roof, public spaces on the main floor, added staircase to the top floors, etc. Hotel management and the staff are all extremely friendly, atmosphere is serene, food...

Not far from St-Motitz and yet worlds apart, the Waldhaus in Sils-Maria is like entering the gentle world of a forgotten era. I think the fact that the hotel is privately owned by an old local family makes the difference: as soon as we got to the check-in counter the elderly owner came and introduced himself, as if this were...

You may find several luxury hotels with grand architecture in Switzerland. Sadly most of them, although having maintained their architectural legacy and character, succumbed to modern hotel management standards. In this case you will be inmersed in not only a wonderful historic building on top of a hill overlooking a picturesque Swiss village and lake, but also in the atmosphere... More

My family has been enjoying this wonderful hotel for about 15 summers now. With an idyllic setting amid majestic mountains, blue placid lakes and green, green trees, coupled with efficient, friendly staff and management, the Hotel Waldhaus Sils always delivers. Well appointed guest rooms with amazing views and fresh air in abundance is very relaxing. An indoor pool and sauna... More

We had a really lovely dinner at the restaurant there! The decor is very old traditional Swiss, plenty of alpine carvings on the walls, wooden panels everywhere and even wooden chandeliers! It's not modern and it cannot be compared to a city 5* hotel; it's old fashioned and understated. The service was immecable and they served each customers their dish... More

Understated posh hotel where you'll not be bothered even if you are someone. Cultural events in the hotel and Sils Maria are excellent for a mountain resort. Close to village but higher up on a hill with a view. Try to get a view towards lake on Maloja side instead of the village.

The Waldhaus is in a league of its own and absolutely outstanding - and not only because of its superb location which overlooks the whole of the Engadine valley. Every room has a marvellous view. This hotel has been continuously run by (now the third) generations of the same family, and it is obvious how much care and thought they... More

We try to visit the Waldhaus every year in late winter, if we find time. As everyone knows, it is a hotel beyond dreams, a magical place, with wonderful staff, family run with much more than just personal touch, great food and perfect location. It is and old house, so that the style, size and atmosphere of the rooms vary.... More

I don't normally take the time to post reviews to Tripadvisor, but Hotel Waldhaus deserves a proper, "thank you". The rooms, views, meals, service etc are all that other reviewers have said they are, but for me Hotel Walhaus has another, more intangible, quality. The balance between perfectionism and authenticity is such a challenge for a hotel nowadays; we all... More
