“"Space for us on a skiing holiday"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2010

Klosters is a charming high quality place. The hotels are generally of reliable standard, yet some stand out. The Veriena is well regarded. but represents a bit of a missed opportunity to embrace the Grand status of the building when it was refurbished. The Alpina somewhat struggles with the label as the best trendy/modern classy hotel but it is a very welcoming smart establishment, the Walserhof is a tiny wonderful gem, but one you are more likely to visit as a diner than a resident, but they are truly charming the bulding is wholly uncorrupted, charming and genuinely welcoming. The Steinbock does not necessarily compete with erther the Veriena or the Walserhof on all fronts but it is probably fair tht its tripadvisor rating is ahead of the Alpina, perhaps this is value and views rather than contemporary enticement, but Steinbock deserves some important credits.... The rooms for a seven night stay are very generous generally for Swiss resorts.. The food is good, but like all but the best Swiss hotels it feels rather formulaic and a wee bit uninspired, well engineered and entirely competant, but not really exciting..the convenience of the location is great, but make sure you do try to get them to help with the bags from the station, it is only 500m if you know where you are going, but if yu dont it can be a perilous cit shoe hell dragging over heavy, capacious luggage through charming streets but even at 1100m above sea level this is not really a good way to start your winter break. The reliability of the Swiss train service should be part of your plan to get picked up at the station. Other positives, neverending hot water, good reliable pressure, the balcony rooms are worth it, 36m gives you efffectively a junior suite with a great office area that masquerades as a dinner table and a futon style arrangement.. Downsides are few but you should be aware,,, bathrooms are corian vanity units(that are holding up quite well), tiles all around that are definately of the past, all is very clean and all works well in the ensuites, but the tiling style(not Quality) is very out of date. Most of the staff are very charming, always helpful,,, sometimes a little shy, but this is a place that does want to look after you and it is important also to play your part in encouraging communication...the litlte lounge area gets locals in which is a welcome rarity, the small bar can get a little smokey, the residents restaurant is perfectly fine if a little quieter than the very busy a la carte... you can use the lounge as well to get power for your laptop, and whilst paying for access is a pain it is at least reliable. the real pain poits area lack of leads so you can use the great tv's to show dvds from your laptop,,, bring the leads and a couple of dvds you will get a great picture...the lack of any remotely good englis language channels,,, CNN may well be fine for a good base level, but really need BBC news for Brits as well as English Language Versions of Eurosport and Euronews etc ? I accept it is unresonable to expect free wifi, free sat tv stations etc in such a small hotel, but there has been investement in very good panansonic Viera tvs,,,small step etc may well be quite good fro reviews..

If you are skiing only in Klosters the Best pace to leave your boots in a locker is under the railway in the very smart new shop, but if you want flexibility and intend to go to Davos by bus, or Madrisa at Klosters Dorf then use the places on the "hotel" side of the tracks....

The main point ids though that these are good rooms for a ski resort, and the hotel is deserving of its current thrid ranking in the town...

The Steinbock hotel is an excellent option for spending some quality time on the Swiss mountains in the Davos area. The hotel is located perfectly in the centre of the village, close to everything - railway station of the UNESCO Rathischebahn, start of the XC tracks and starting station of the cablecar to the ski-slopes. Rooms are very nice, spacious, quiet, very clean and with all required services. I strongly recommend the ones with South view that add to the package nice small terraces with view on the mountains. The restaurant in the hotel is worth a visit independently from being an hotel guest.

Excellent hotel. Great location. Great staff. Scrumptous food. The rooms are attractive and exceptionally clean and the views spectacular. I would not hesitate to recommend the Hotel Steinbock to friends and family. I felt pampered during the entire stay and cannot say enough positive things regarding how this hotel is managed.
I cannot wait to return .

We went for a family ski vacation and stayed at the Hotel Steinbock for five nights; our rate included meals and lift tickets.

The location was great; we had a lovely view from our window (some of the rooms have balconies), and we could walk a few blocks to the main tram station and everything in Klosters.
Our room was very clean and comfortable. We had a king bed and the sofa was made into a comfortable bed for our child. The decor was simple, but comfortable and very clean. We had plenty of room to stow our winter gear.

The hotel had a wonderful, clean spa area with whirlpool, sauna, steam and showers; (heads up to the modest: bathing suits are not allowed).

One of the dining rooms served a wonderful breakfast each morning with a wide selection of foods. The staff was very attentive and answered all our questions about food ingredients (our child has a severe food allergy) and was very accommodating. The dining room for dinner had a very cozy (romantic) setting and the menu had a nice selection to choose from each evening (we don't eat meat and there was always a fish or vegetarian dish); the staff always let our child choose from either the adult or child menu.

We would definitely consider returning to Klosters to ski and to the Steinbock for it's comfortable, cozy atmosphere.

Stayed February 2007
