Hello. My husband and I will travel with another couple to Sils. We have hiked briefly in this area and find it beautiful. We would like to stay in Sils, Sils Fex area. Can someone recommend the best hotel (not stuffy, warm and clean)? We are also thinking of Pontresina instead. Would love advice on specific hotels there. Have looked at several websites, but cannot always tell with few reviews. We will come from Soglio and stay in one of these areas 2 nights before moving onto Como area.

Please advise.

Hi Europehikers

Sils and Pontresina are two completely different parts of our valley and you could spend a long time hiking in either of part. As you are arriving from Soglio and are going back to Como, Sils would be on the way. There is a whealth of nice and romantic hotels (totally 17) in Sils (www.sils.ch). You did not mention which cathegory of hotels you are looking for. In Sils I would recommend the Chesa Randolina (www.randolina.ch), a former farmers house converted into a hotel under family management (most of them are in Sils) with beautiful views over the lake. If you prefer the Fex valley (more isolated, you would be confined to your hotel e.g. for dinner - but most hotels are halfboard anyway), there is the Hotel Sonne in Fex (www.hotel-sonne-fex.ch), a really nice hotel, or very far into the valley, where the road ends and the hiking trail to the glacier begins, the traditional hotel Fex (www.hotelfex.ch), an oasis of tranquility as soon as the day tourists have left. At the beginning of the valley, there is the romantic hotel Chesa Pool (www.chesapool.ch). All those hotels - as also the others in Sils - are very good Please mind that the Fex valley is closed for traffic, means only horsedrawn carriages and the hotels shuttle bus are allowed. Sils is perfect for hiking. Don't miss the Fuorcla Surlej with a breathtaking view of the near mountains.
