The sport central hotel in Davos is a good choice of accommodation in the always expensive town.
the rooms are small but not to bad , the mattress in the beds is not as comfortable as the american hotels but is ok to sleep , but one thing make all the difference , and that is the staff of the hotel
they are amazing in being nice and very polite , but the portuguese staff.
in the restaurant , the breakfast is very good and the 2 waitress are amazing and make me fill at home .
So if you want to stay in a good hotel , that make you fill at home choose the central sporthotel in Davos

Room Tip: the top floors are best

This was my first visit to Davos and was pleased to find that our hotel was in a central location. Hotel was clean and tidy with nice spacious room but disappointed that our balcony only looked on to the back of other buildings so not conducive to sit out. Unfortunately it was at the front of the building and on one night we were kept await by noise from people partying outside. We did mention this to Reception but it was apparent by the lack of interest in our complaint that this was a common problem. It was very interesting to see the photos and read of the history of the hotel; however very sad that over the years with renovations that it has very characterless exterior.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing away from front of building if your want a quiet room.

We have been to Switzerland many times and enjoyed the standard of Swiss hotels. This was the fifth time we had been to Davos but the first time we had stayed at this hotel.
The hotel is situated right in Davos Platz, just off the main street. It is not an attractive building, being a concrete construction and not having the benefit of any flower displays on the balconies. Davos is a busy town, not a quiet Alpine retreat. It is therefore noisy, with traffic noise close by. Our room was at the rear of the building with a view over the mountains. There was quite a bit of traffic noise and there is a lot of building going on nearby. Also, the various coach trips that visit this hotel, park behind it and we had the noise of them loading and unloading at various times of the day and night. There is a sports arena nearby and the balconies have a clear view of the footbal pitch. There were matches etc., on at every time of the day and night.
The public rooms of this hotel vary. The entrance/reception is ok. The main restaurant is very pleasant, light and airy. The Bundnerstubli is the usual Swiss style small restaurant and the piano bar, which is attached, is small but comfortable. The pianist is quite good but you do get a bit fed up with the same songs every night. The lounge is quite awful, resembling an old peoples home. It really needs a modern facelift. The pool and other facilities, sauna, steam room etc., are very nice.
We had reserved a particular room by email, which had been confirmed by the hotel. It was disappointing that we were not given that room and no real explanation was given. As it was, the room we had was excellent. It was large and well furnished. The bathroom contained a superb shower and nice toiletries. The rooms are a real plus point in this hotel.
The staff in this hotel are very good. We found them friendly and very helpful indeed.
We had breakfast each day in the main restaurant. This was a reasonable buffet, with cereals, fruit, juices, bread, rolls, croissants, yoghurts, cheese and ham and boiled eggs. You can obtain scrambled/fried eggs if you request them. It represented a reasonable start to the day.
This hotel has decided that its major source of income in the summer will be from coach trips. As such, we felt we were treated as second class citizens. We were not allowed to have dinner in the main restaurant, that was reserved solely for coach parties. We ate in the Bundnerstubli. It was pleasant enough but open to the public. At times it was more like a kindergarden, with the accompaniment of noises from electronic games! We even had dogs in the restaurant. Whilst the coach parties had a salad buffet, we did not. The menu at nights was very limited, with only a choice of one main course or vegetarian and the quality was anything but four star. The food in the evenings was a disappointment. The sweets however, were always so well presented, unlike the main courses, which were clearly fixed to a budget.
All in all, we had a good holiday but the hotel was not up to normal four star establishments, of the sort we have previously stayed in at various resorts. If we thought of returning to Davos again, we would not revisit this hotel. There are much better hotels in Davos.

Room Tip: Rooms at the rear have views of the mountains but only get morning sun. Rooms at the front look out...

We stayed in this hotel 3 night; we had a 2 room apartment, very new and very nice! Everything was perfect; very nice location (in the centre of davos platz) 2 minutes from Schatzalp. You can go around with public transportation without any problem. You can also use the wellness of the Hotel, included the indoor pool. Parking in front of the aparment.

Room Tip: apartments have any possible comfort!

This was one of 4 4* hotels we stayed in in Switzerland and was probably my least favourite. Having said that though, the hotel was clean, had a reasonable sized room and good food. The staff were very friendly.
The lift / train pass included for the Davos area was a great bonus.
Nothing wrong with this hotel at all, just not quite as luxurious as some of the others I stayed in whilst in Switzerland. The room furniture was very basic.

We stayed for four nights as part of a tour group. We had a nice room on the 6th floor although being at the front, the view from the balcony was slightly disappointing but we were able to enjoy the early evening sunshine.

The room was well furnished and spotlessly clean and we found all the staff we encountered to be very friendly and efficient. This included the restaurant but we did find the food there disappointing with a very limited choice for dinner. In fairness, this was probably due to the tour operator negotiating low rates which meant that corners were cut but we were sure a choice of starter and dessert could have been offered without increasing the cost. The breakfasts were adequate but no more.

On the plus side, the provision of a Davos card meant that we had free use of the local transport including cable cars and funicular railways - a nice touch.

We would probably go back if we could be assured that we would have a better choice and quality of meals.

Room Tip: Back rooms, would probably have a better view with corner rooms best of all.
