I stayed 4 nights in this hotel, in the second part of August 2013. Hotel Privata is, I think, one of the better hotels I've ever stayed at. I don't normally grade hotels as Excellent, but this place is really worth that. Compared to the budget I normally aim for, I felt that I splurged just a little by booking... More

We were on a walking holiday, hotel to hotel, and this was our last base. The previous hotels had been very good, but this was excellent. We were given a room upgrade; lovely and light with a small balcony, good bathroom, comfortable beds, stylish too so we were happy! Evening meals are served at 7pm. The 4 course menu is... More

Hotel Privata hits the mark perfectly: it is an authentic, family-owned (for 35 years), charming Swiss hotel. It's just the right size-- big enough to feel lively, small enough so that the owner, Corina Giovanoli, is omnipresent (and making sure things run just so). We stayed here for three nights in August 2013; the kids were in a smaller room... More

This is a sweet, intimate place but still with lots of privacy. The rooms are good-sized, very well-kept and clean. And the little vegetable garden is very pleasant in the summer. The service is great. It is perfect if you go to the area for hiking, mountain-biking or skiing and do not expect a large, complex infrastructure. The staff are... More

We stayed (a party of 4) half-board in August 2012. The rooms were good, with a good powerful shower and a decent buffet breakfast. Good location in the centre of the village. The only aspect that didn't suit us was the evening meal, where there was no choice of dining time (19:00) or menu, although the food itself was fine.

We had booked our room directly with the hotel ; the Engadine Inclusive Pass (free bus / train / cable car for all places between Scuol and Alp Grum) was part of our offer. When we checked in, we were greeted by a sunny friendly young lady, Corina, who spoke perfect English – which laid to rest our faint apprehensions... More

Great small hotel. From front desk to room maid, the staff is extremely professional : friendly but not familiar, knowledgeable and obliging. The young owner (second generation) makes the difference : most of the days she was visibly present, coaching her staff and helping at breakfast and dinnertime. We went two years in a row (first time) and saw the... More

Although we know Switzerland well, this was our first sojourn in the Hotel Privata - but what an experience! Maybe, we were already biased by the peace and beauty of the upper Engadin (valley), these were the most perfect vacations we ever experienced. But let me rave about the hotel. It is run by a young woman and her enthusiastic... More

I spent a lot of time researching the many, many charming Swiss towns before deciding on Sils Maria, and am so glad that we ended up there. The town is lovely without being twee, and the Hotel Privata was a perfect choice for our family. As there are very few reviews on this site, I will provide a bit of... More
