“Charming hotel in Zurs for a ski trip, great value for single rooms.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

Booked 3 single rooms at the Edelweiss, for a trip with friends. The single rooms are large, quiet and well kept, you could easily fit another person in there and even room for another folding bed. I had rooms much smaller than this sold to me as double rooms in the past. Tub was big and very clean. Price for the single rooms was very good - we had offers from different hotels that cost the same for triple rooms in which we'd have to share a bathroom.

Service at the hotel was impeccable - and the whole staff, desk, restaurant bar were always smiling and friendly, with perfect English. One of us had a problem with a female desk staffer who didn't explain to him that there's a surcharge for paying credit card for external services like ski rental and ski passes - this should be explained to guests in advance!

Restaurant was great too, the food was very interesting, never the same dish twice at dinner, with a few nice surprises like a dessert dumpling buffet. Service at the restaurant was especially friendly!

Internet access was especially convenient - with free wired internet in the room and wifi in the public areas, no hassles or strange password schemes.

Hotel parking is just across the street, in an open lot - we were afraid we'd have to dig the car out of the snow, but when we had to leave, the housekeeping manager did it for us!

Location is very good, 2 minutes walk to a lift, ski back to the hotel, and bus stops 20 meters away (important, since Zurs is pretty small, and you are likely to end your day at Lech nearby).

Zurs itself was kind of a disappointment (not the hotel's fault, of course) - no street action at all, just a group of hotels - plan on apres-ski at Lech.

One room for improvement: the showers at the sauna had faulty taps, and water fluctuated between hot and cold.

Never occurred to me to write a review of the place my children regards as home away from home. We have been going for 20+ years, so yes we like it. It has it's cons as do all hotels, one of them being that there are mostly Germans staying there. The other cons in my opinion are just that, my opinion and may not be that bad to others. The food has been improving over the years. The chef cooked some of the best Asian outside of Asia (where we used to live), but you have to ask for it. Seems the clientele don't like to eat Asian in the Alps, they have no idea what they're missing out on. The Ice Bar when the weather is nice is heaven. The staff, as at all other places, can be a hit and miss, some of them have become friends that visit us, others I would be very happy to never see again. The location very handy to some of the best skiing in the world. If you like night life, of which Zurz doesn't have a lot, the entertainment value of being at the Edelweiss is great. People really do do the oddest things when drunk. Again may not be everybody's cup of tea, but it is lively here, other hotels don't seem to have that. This is a fun place. The grown ups should go stay at other hotels :)

Room Tip: HIgher floors, and away from the street.
