Very Swiss Hotel - very nice, well appointed rooms with a Swiss character.
Awesome restaurant with very energetic and warm ladies serving the guests, delectable food!
Took the Glacier Express to St Moritz from Chur on a wet and windy day - so spent a lot of time on the terrace of the hotel too!
Recommend it fully if you choose to go to Chur - the oldest town of Switzerland!!

Diners smoking in the bar/longe area was the only dampener. Otherwise would recommend highly. Location great. Hotel/staff very good. Might be a bit pricey, but I was with a group.

Room Tip: I'm told the annexe upper rooms aren't for tall people ! "

Very nice room here with lots of carved timber to create a warm atmosphere. Everything you should require is in the room.
Not as close to the Old Town as we hoped, but not too far. We were only here one night, so time was limited.
Check in was easy and reception staff very friendly.
Breakfast was good.

We stayed just one night as a stop before boarding the Glacier Express to Zermatt. We had a larger "attic" room in the adjoining building, with atmospheric beams and dormer windows (watch your head!). Very friendly staff at front desk during our stay. Although pretty, the lack of any reasonable lighting in the room made it difficult to find clothes in the closet, pack, read, etc. We ended up unplugging a floor lamp and moving it around where we needed light. Also, turning on the kettle made all the lights go out - we realized that everything was plugged into the same extension cord. Finally had to move the kettle to the bathroom plug to boil water for tea. There was no coffee in the room. Breakfast room was somewhat crowded and buffet selection limited. Staff at breakfast seemed overworked and not as friendly as the front desk.. We didn't try the restaurant but it looked very nice compared with other restaurants nearby we checked out.

Sofa bed was odd, as it slid out and opened up when you sat on it. Perhaps we were the only ones who ever tried to use it as a sofa for sitting? No fitness room (not unusual in Switzerland but a dissapointment in this price range) and no bellman/doorman available. the hotel is on the edge of the Old Town so easy to walk to the train station one direction and the Old Town the other.

Overall not sure if it's worth the price or the reputation with such basic issues.

We stayed for three nights at the beginning of October with a railway travel group of 26. The meals were lovely. We had two set meals with the group (the hotel coped well with low potassium diet requirements too) which were excellent, and a meal downstairs on our last night. It was busy, but it was jolly good!
I really enjoyed being in our room. All wood, cosy, comfortable, and opposite the church. The bells were no worse than your average grandfather clock, except when they went mad at about quarter to eight in the evening. We didn't bother with the TV, we used the rather expensive wifi, and I loved the recipe book.
It was an excellent base for trips on the railway and for exploring the old town. We are already planning a return.

We were able to walk to this hotel from the station. It is in a good location at the edge of the old town. We were given an attic room in an adjoining building. The room was large, but like the other reviewer said, "Be aware of the low beams especially near the windows".You need to book if you want a good table in the hotel restaurant. It is a one hatted restaurant and the food is delicious. The serice was good and they gave you little chef's specials between course. While you may think the restaurant is expensive it is really better value for money and much better food than other restaurants in the town. Even the Swiss say that their food is expensive!
Breakfast provided a variety of cold food with boiled eggs being the only hot. Staff were courteous and efficient. The main building is very Swiss whereasa the adjoining ones are more modern. This hotel was a pleasant base for our trips around Eastern Switzerland.

Room Tip: If you want an old world Swiss feel ask for rooms in the main building.

The Romantik Hotel Stern although not luxurious, is a charming little hotel. Our Standard Double room was extremely small but very clean and the bed quite comfortable. The floors are wood laminate, a plus for those of us with terrible allergies. I would suggest booking a larger room if your stay will be longer than one night.
