Our family of 4 stayed here for one night in Sept 2010. We were coming in on the Glacier Express train from Visp; and the following day we were heading to Tirano by train via the Bernina Pass, so we needed a place to stay overnight.
Initially, we were looking for hotels in St Moritz; but even the cheapest hotels there (in St Moritz-Bad) are 2x as expensive as All in One Inn Lodge. After some research, we realized that Celerina will work out just as well for us.
The main Celerina train station (where the Glacier Exp stops at), is located uphill from the hotel. Therefore, when we disembarked the train, it was a 12-min downhill walk for us to get to the hotel. It was an easy walk with our wheeled carry-on sized luggage.
The following day, we boarded a regional train from the smaller Celerina-STAZ train station to Tirano. The Celerina-Staz station is only a 7-min walk (flat terrain) from the hotel, so it worked out well for us as we didn't have to hike uphill back to the main train station.
From the hotel, it's easy to catch a local bus (5-min walk to bus stop outside Cresta Palace hotel) to get to St Moritz. The bus runs every 10 mins during day time, and is only a 7-min ride (4 stops) to St Moritz. The bus ride is covered by our Swiss Pass, and we were in St Moritz for some sightseeing and dinner. At night, the bus runs every half-hour.
The InnLodge itself is modern, sleek, and clean. If you're looking for a traditional Swiss Inn, this is not the place for you. It has bare concrete walls, which is great for soundproofing.
We booked a Studio M, which is okay for 4 people for 1 night, but I would not recommend it for longer stay because it is a bit cramped. The lower level has the bathroom, a sofa-bed (already converted to a double bed for us), and a small-ish table with 4 chairs. With the sofa-bed opened, there's really not enough space to sit all 4 people at the table. The kitchenette is adequate, but we didn't use it to cook meals except to boil some water and used the fridge to store some foods.
Upstairs is a loft with 2 twin beds. Wi-fi worked well in our studio. Hotel staff was pleasant and helpful.
Someone else had mentioned in his/her review about the lack of towels and soap. We DID NOT find that to be the case. We had 4 sets of towels in the bathroom and were not charged extra for those.
Celerina itself is a small, quaint and picturesque town. We absolutely felt Celerina was a fine alternative to St Moritz, for 1/2 the price!
