Sporthotel Victoria
Ranked #18 of 21 Hotels in Gstaad
Reviewed December 14, 2011

We are from New Zealand and stayed one night at Sporthotel Victoria in Gstaad, on Friday 9th December.
We were very well looked after by the friendly staff, and our room was perfect for the two of us, for one night. The room was quite small, but we were warned on check-in that the only 'double' room they had available was quite a small (we did not prebook, just received infio from the Gstaad Information Centre on arrival about which hotels were available), it had a balcony and looked down onto the pedestrian street below.
It's probably a 3 star hotel, but is very clean, nicely furnished, and the bed was very comfortable.
There is a lovely 'wellness' area at the basement of the hotel where we had a sauna, and is possible to have a work out in the small gym, have sunbed, massage etc. It's not open reguarly, but you just need to request with the front desk to use the facility and they will arrange for you.
The European continental breakfast was delicious, and there was a lot to choose from (contrary to another comment I have read on this site).
Gstaad is a very small town, and this hotel is located in the centre, not too close to a main road so is very quiet.
We stayed at the hotel approx 1 week prior to the busy ski season starting, so we did not see the town in full swing, though it was bitterly cold outside! Most beautiful location.
I would definitely stay here again, and recommend to other 3-4 star travellers.
Thanks for having us!

I recently stayed at this hotel for 11nights. The room was ok,clean, with basic things.
Breakfast buffet was also ok, not much to choose from. Every day same things to eat.
The hotel restaurant serves nice(but quite small) pizza. The staff friendly.

We stayed at the Sporthotel Victoria in Gstaad for 1 night. This hotel is ideally located on the Promenade, the main street in Gstaad. The room was newly refurbished, very clean and quiet. The only downside was the parking as there are only a few places available from the hotel, we had to leave our car in the carpark and drag our suitcases along. Breakfast was great and we really enjoyed being able to walk everywhere.

Simple, very clean and tidy Hotel. Very happy with week long stay. Very few facilities but a large room and very spacious bathroom with adequate shower. Lift but some stairs cannot be avoided. Friendly staff who go the extra mile. I recommend it.

Located on the Promenade, the central car free main street of Gstaad, just 75 metres from the railway station, adjacent to which is the postbus and skibusstation.
Gstaad is ridiculously expensive (particularly with the £/Swiss Franc rate at CHF1.60/£1), but the Sporthotel Victoria was pleasantly affordable, both for food, which was ok without being great, and beer and open wine. Locals as well as visitors in the café/conservatory; pleasant restaurant to the rear. Friendly patron and staff.
If you are looking for a comfortable 3-star base, with no pretentions to being more than this - good little sauna, steamroom and fitness centre, though - then this should suit.

Hotel located in pedestrian area (although via the back reachable by car, nr of own parking places), just 75 meters from little train station where also the local buses depart. Supermarket: 100 meters.

Easy going little hotel, good breakfast buffet (when we were there very good fresh fruit also). Their restaurant is always filled; with locals (who come from 8 pm) and outsiders. Good food with amicable prices.

Something different: have dinner at hotel Cristiania!!! Surprising menue but very good. Staff ever so nice! And.....if you want to surprise (or impress) your boy/girlfriend, husband or wife: order fro her/him a "crepe suzette" for dessert. (I cannot reveal "the trick", you have to trust me).

Right in the centre of town - opposite the railway station. Very peaceful though. By Gstaad standards, reasonable value (prices are high in the whole resort). Restaurant was good with pizzas and basic main courses at affordable prices. Probably best value beer in town. A good choice if you are looking for a comfortable base without being luxurious. Breakfast was a bit sparse - not much choice but good quality and fresh. Not recommended for disabled or very elderly visitors though. Our room was on 4th floor but lift only goes to 3rd. Lift is very small - says it takes 4 but I guess thats based on the supermodels that come to ski!!!!
