“Nice restaurant, but room could have been better”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2011

We chose this hotel from Tripadvisor reviews, but ended up a bit disappointed. Positives and negatives, in our opinion (my husband and I):
Positives:
- Nice central location;
- Reasonable price;
- Cozy feel, all wood, historic photos on walls, low ceilings;
- Nice restaurant. Breakfasts were simple but tasty with great bread and croissants, fresh fruit, cheese/meats, decent coffee, juice, etc. We had two dinners outside across the street, under the trees -- nice ambience and tasty food, comparatively reasonably-priced (remember, it's Switzerland, where everything is pretty pricey);
Negatives:
- Broken shower head apparatus, so that you had to hold the shower head or risk spraying the whole bathroom;
- No extras -- no shampoo or moisturizer, etc. -- only liquid gel that could double as soap, shampoo, etc., in a container fixed to the wall;
- Common balcony, with the result that if you left your window open, people could wander by and peek in;
- Thin walls -- could hear people moving around at all hours;
- Staff seemed to have a rather distant way about them, not like the usual friendliness we had encountered at other hotels.

So, nothing terribly wrong with the place, but nothing so special either.

This was absolutely the most charming hotel I've ever stayed in--and the price couldn't be beat! Everything was wonderful about this hotel--from the welcoming, helpful hosts to the roomy, yet quaint rooms to the spectacular views from the shared deck. I can't wait to go back someday! The small town of Gstaad is also very cute, and a great place to make your hiking base.

Charming and clean hotel with a friendly and helpfull staff. The restaurang was very pleasant, too. Our room was on the top floor (no elevator but it was not a problem for us) and had a beautiful view to mountains. Strongly recomended!

Of course, you can also spend your night at Posthotel Rössli Gstaad, but it is also highly recommended to visit the "Rössli" just for an excellent lunch or dinner. This is exactly what we did - and what we got.
The atmosphere ist truly, simply and authentic Swiss. On the menu you find an excellent variety of Swiss specialities. And what you get is simply a joy. Everything was perfect and most enjoyable. Also the vine selection was outstanding without being too expensive. Service personnel a joy as well. At the "Rössli" you are truly feeling at home - and one wants to get come as soon as possible. As we ware not the only ones to know about the qualities of the "Rössli" Restaurant you need to reserve your table in advance.

Really good place, clean, comfortable, in a typical swiss chalet.
Nice view, good size bathroom and the breakfast is good with amazing bread and homemade fruits salad and jams.
I was in large room 344 on the top floor with a private balcony. Really great!

We recently stayed at Post Hotel Rossli whilst in Gstaad for a friend's wedding. The service was wonderful and the staff was very friendly. They put up with a rather rowdy crew of American wedding goers with incredible patience and graciousness. The rooms are simple but clean and cheery and the beds are comfortable. We would definitely come back for another stay! As a side note, I accidentally left a few things in the room when we checked out, and they quickly sent them back to me in the States.

We found ourselves in Gstaad to stay, as Glacier 3000 was the only ski slope open during the week of 23 Nov 2008. We stayed at Post Hotel Rossli after being recommended by locals on our train ride to Gstaad.

If you are looking for clean, comfortable and safe atmosphere, I highly recommend Post Htel Rossli. It is a short walk from the train station. The staff is wonderful and the rooms are very cozy. There is free internet access and a computer to use. A gathering room offers checkers/TV/computer...feels like home.
