“Fantastic rooms”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

I stayed here with a friend early in 2012. We were very plesantly surprised with the hotel and the quality of the rooms. The room we stayed in, had been beautifully renovated, the beds were comfortable and there was plenty of space in the room. The icing on the cake however was the jacuzzi bath complete with coloured lighting, a very nice treat after a day's skiing :-).
The breakfast is buffet style with great choice on offer. If you want anything cooked, you have to ask, but the staff are more than happy to fulfil your requests.

You really can't beat this hotel, it is really special. The only things are the wifi only works in the lobby and if you like bacon and eggs for brekkie you need to ask the waiter. They make them for you but if you don't ask you don't get ;)

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2012

The Meta Resort Bernina is a beautiful old hotel in the middle of Samedan. We were surprised to get such a great room for a reasonable price!
For skiing or hiking, for a romantic vacation in this beautiful region for a good price (CHF 150-180) this hotel is perfect.

Pros
- Old but nice hotel, rooms are clean, no carpet
- Very good service at the front desk, very nice people!
- Tasty breakfast with good selection
- Big rooms and big bathroom
- Sauna and Turkish bath
- Close to train station

Cons
- Our room and the breakfast room was too hot
- Internet did not work when we were there (lobby is supposed to have internet but it did not work)

Room Tip: Room 208 is big and has its own balcony (which most rooms do not have). See pictures.

We stayed here 2 nights in September and it was one of our best hotel experiences ever! This hotel has just been remodeled and the room we had was super. It had a huge, beautifully decorated room room with a jacuzzi tub, a great bed, safe,TV and a large balcony. Our balcony was bigger than some of the other rooms I stayed in that trip. I could not find an English channel on TV, but it was not important enough to check with the hotel about. Breakfast was in a huge ballroom and had the best fresh baked croissants that I have ever had. I thought it was a very good value for what it is, a 4 star hotel. The room was less than 200 CHF per night and well worth it. The attached restaurant was very good and an excellent value. The hotel also provided a free shuttle to & from the Train Station, which is only a 5 minute walk away. Samedan is very convenient to all the sites in the valley. My only complaint was the internet access in the lounge. There was a technical problem that caused us to get disconnected every couple of minutes. I was able to check email, etc. without any real difficulty.
However, the best thing about our stay was the staff, Sonya was wonderful to us and made sure we taken good care of. My wife really enjoyed being serenaded by the Italian staff member who came to our room to help us with a slight problem with the jacuzzi. The entire staff was outstanding! We will never forget our friends at the Hotel Bernina!

We've just been spending a couple of days in this very nice hotel with our daugthers and granny. The place has been recently renovated. Rooms are spacious, clean and nicely furnished. Jacuzzi with cromotherapy is available in every room. Everything was fine, from breakfast (beautiful room) to service. Lots to do in the area, nice walks. It's worth a visit and a longer stay. We will defintely consider going back next year!

My son and I stayed here in July two years ago for 3 nights. This is a beautiful hotel, with clean, nicely decorated rooms. The service was outstanding, with the staff almost aniticipating our every need. We couldn't believe that it was only rated with 3 stars. Compared with any other hotel that we stayed in, in Europe this should have been given 5 stars. Our top floor room, at the front of the hotel, had a spectacular panoramic view of the mountains. I would return to this hotel at any time. It was that good.

The town of Samedan is old, small and quite nice. At night everything around here is very, very quiet and certainly very peaceful.

I can't wait to go there again.
