“Beautiful Dinning Hall”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

My wife and I spent two nights @ the Edelweiss. We liked our stay there. Our room was on the 3rd floor not in the main building.

The room itself was quite big. The bathroom however was pretty small. But it had a wonderful rain shower and the whole bath room looked freshly renovated.

Breakfast was served in the beautiful art-nouveau dining hall.There was a buffet breakfast with a good choice. Severall breads, scrambled eggs, bacon, cold meat, juices, joghurt etc. The first morning we were a little disappointed by the choice of cheese - but the 2nd day it was perfect.

In the evening we had twice dinner in the hotel. One evening in a small dining room the second evening in the dinning hall. The quality of the served dinner was very good. The 2nd evening we got even entertainment by two musicians. A piano player and a singer. The two sister played some classical Italian, French and German chansons.

Every evening the hotel director showed up, went to each table and asked about the day etc. This was very personable and friendly.

Sometimes we wished the waitress would been a little faster and they sometimes did not see small details to fix. But they are all very friendly.

What we liked very much and have not been aware while booking the rooms, is the we got two free passes for the local buses, trains and cablecars. With these pases valid as well on the day of departure you can save quite some money.

Definitely not the last stay in Edelweiss

We were going to St Moritz for an event, but couldn't find anywhere affordable in town itself for just one night, so booked here. As soon as we walked through the door we knew we'd got it right. Hotel was just lovely, relaxed atmosphere, modern alpine decor, friendly English-speaking staff, made a real fuss of us and we only stayed the one night. Didn't eat dinner there (went to the Alpenrose in the village - excellent) but did have breakfast which was a vry good and plentiful hot and cold buffet. Best part was the tea - make your own from a variety (including English Breakfast) in a little iron teapot - perfect! I booked a single and got upgraded, the room was lovely, very comfortable, spotlessly clean and plenty of room. No bath, shower only. Sils-Maria is a very pretty village, a few miles out of St Moritz, and the hotel offer a shuttle service into town. Only regret is we weren't staying long enough to make use of the spa facilities and treatments, which seemed to be reasonably priced (for Switzerland!).

Room Tip: I don't know if they have rooms with baths, but if it's important to you you should ask when...

In previous years when staying in Sils, we have stayed at Waldhaus. Because we were vacationing with friends and family, we needed a place that was a little less expensive. Hotel Edelweiss is not cheap, but you get a lot for your money here. The rooms are nice, we had a little balcony in ours which was wonderful. The hotel itself is gorgeous, "Old World European" dining room and common areas. Breakfast and dinners were delicious, lots to choose from, all very good. When we were there they had a great pianist most evenings. The staff cannot do enough for you. They picked us up at the train station when we arrived, and took us to the agency to pick up our rental car when we left. They made sure that we could all eat together in their dining room on multiple nights. The staff was always helpful and patient with our many questions. You also get a pass for free access to the many cable cars, and for local busses and trains. The area was expecting about 4 inches of snow one of the nights we were there, but was surprised by over a foot of wet snow! The next morning we took one of the horse drawn carriages up into the Fex Valley for lunch, and walked back to Sils, it was magical. After the storm the weather cleared so the next few days we had magnificent views from the top of the mountains, we could see forever! I would stay here again, Waldhaus might not get us back!

Room Tip: We loved our room with a balcony!

Friendly and efficient staff with a superb dining for breakfast and dinner. We stayed 2 nights in Sils Maria on a Swiss hiking tour and found the Hotel Edelweiss to be top notch in all respects. The dining experience at dinner was by far one of the best experiences we have ever had in any major city, with an outstanding chef and gourmet dining at its most relaxed and best.

This hotel was much larger than I expected for such a small town and much larger than the quaint boutique hotels we had stayed at in the Engadine until arriving in Sils. It was also much grander and luxurious than others as well and had a spa and an old world charm grand ballroom restaurant as well as an inviting lobby and bar to relax.

The terrace out front was a pleasant place to enjoy a bier and wait staff were quick to assist in taking an order. Great place to people watch and enjoy the mountain views and fresh air.

We were informed of a six course concert dinner that night and also advised that if we didn't wish to be seated for that an ala carte dining room was available. We opted for the six course dinner which was lovely with wonderful service, music and food, but long (~ 3.5 hours).

Our room was not in the original building, but still spacious and nice. The bathroom was small and counter space was minimal: however, very modern and updated.

Staff was friendly and helpful and overall a wonderful visit.

Good-sized room, nice bathroom. Try and stay in the main hotel; the annex has less charm. Great decor in the big dining room, where excellent breakfast is served. There is also a smaller dining room where you can eat a la carte, good food and service. Personally I can do without the piano player in the lobby, but that's a question of tastes. Couldn't get internet access, the system was down.

We stayed here for a week in June. Sils is a lovely little village about 15 minutes drive from St Moritz. The hotel picked us up from and returned us to St Moritz railway station at no extra cost. The hotel has a large lounge area with comfortable chairs and piano music in the evening. There is a small cafe area at the front of the hotel but no other outdoor space. The hotel dates back over 100 years and the amazing dining room maintains the original grand style. Our superior room in the attached Solidella annexe seemed recently refurbished, was furnished to a high standard. had a modern bathroom and a balcony looking out at the mountains. We recommend a room on the top floor and at the front of the hotel to maximise the views. Even though this overlooks the road it is quiet. Breakfast is buffet style and very extensive and tasty with fresh orange juice, cereals, breads, meats, cheeses, fresh fruit, cakes etc. We took the half board option and the four course meals were all delicious with a choice of starters and main courses. We had one six course gala meal and a starter buffet one night and a dessert buffet another. Service was friendly and efficient.
The hotel manager visited the restaurant on several evenings and talked to the guests. The whole atmosphere was very positive and you felt they wanted you to enjoy your stay.
The area is beautiful and excellent for walking and wild flowers. The hotel is part of a scheme offering a free transport pass which covers buses, trains and cable cars. This makes it very easy to get about and can save you a lot of money.
We like a quiet location and were glad we did not stay at some of the bigger, more popular resorts in the area. We were also glad we chose this hotel - we did not want to leave.
