Secluded hotel in the Swiss Alps, owned/operated by the same family for 4 generations. Delightful experience---generously sized rooms, fine cuisine in the dining room, superb service throughout. Even a string trio playing Mozart in the afternoon tea lounge! This is the kind of getaway royalty visited a hundred years ago. Great scenery, challenging mountain hiking trails, no congestion or urban...

This is a trip that we will never forget. The location is fantastic and The Waldhaus Sils at Sils Maria is the best, classic, family owned 5 star hotel that we had ever stayed. The cuisine is perfect but the finesse and feel of the hotel is like no other. Perfect location, couple steps and you can grab a hiking...

Magnificent hotel in period style with modern amenities, bathrooms. Spectacular views of lakes and mountains. A great place of origin for hiking and skiing expeditions. Beautiful lobby, dining-room, and bedrooms, esp. those with balconies. Half-pension recommended.

Spontaneous decision for a couple of days in Oberengadin, with a stay at the Hotel Waldhaus in Sils. Knowing the region for over 50 years, no bad surprise with regard to majestuous alpine nature and sumptuous flora in July. As usual, a beautiful place to be if not the most beautiful. I agree, I am biased, having been baptized in...

We very much enjoyed our first stay at the Waldhaus as a family of three generations. We had heard lots of positive reports before coming here, but you really have to come to experience it. Although the hotel is quite large, you are certainly not just a number. Instead, it offers a genuinely personalised service which feels very sincere. The...

They don't make hotels like this in the US. Waldhaus is something from another era that still executes perfectly in todays world. The service is not the "thank you sir, whatever you need" kind, but rather efficient, professional and competent with no subservient bent. The employees here are true professionals. From the check-in desk to the bus boy everyone treats...
