Hotel Cresta Sun
Ranked #46 of 56 Hotels in Davos
Reviewed April 21, 2013

Having actually lived in Davos opposite the Cresta Sun for several years it was a natural choice for a family ski week. Buffet breakfast: great. Reception help: great. Restaurant: good. Parking: sometimes difficult and costs extra. Bar: nice. Location - Central between Jakobshorn (Davos Plat and Parsenn (Davos Dorf) with free and plentiful buses from outside the hotel. Nice views (for Davos) across the Golf Course area to Dischma. The staff are extremely good and the maid called us once we left to say my son had left his ipod in the room. They then sent it to us. Very honest and very nice.

Because they had run out of rooms we were put in one of their appartments. They are several 100m away from the hotel. You feel totally cut off - all the hotel conveniences (especially in common winter temparatures of -12C or so) are a way off and the appartments were noisy (right next to the railway) or very hot (underfloor heating poorly controlled) depending if you opend the windows or not. No maid unless you paid extra, and not real kitchen (just a hot plate). Either insist on a hotel room or go and rent a proper appartment for cheaper.

In conclusion, as a hotel a recommendation, good value for Davos, but steer clear of the appartments to avoid disappointment.

Room Tip: Do not go for the appartments. My ratings are for the appartments, not the rooms.

A hotel that's worth it's 4 stars. Rooms that are well arranged and kept clean, an extensive breakfast buffet, and every evening a fine 4-course meal, with some options. The hotel is situated In the middle between Davos-Dorf and Davos-Platz, but the free busses, which drive with a swiss accuracy, compensate that fully. The hotel has also it's own shuttle-service to the ski-slopes. Wi-Fi, although paying, didn't function always as I wished. The parking-place near the hotel was sufficient, but when the hotel is fully booked, it could be too small. Fully recommended for those who want to ski in Davos or have to be in the nearby Congress Centre.

We found the staff to be very personable and friendly. The owners are a younger couple and have done a great job picking good people for the front desk and the restaurant. The small bar is cozy with the staff filling in as the bartender; so fancy drinks are out of the question.

We went in december in this hotel. (3 rooms 8500 chf : 9000 $). At this price i could expect a good hotel.
First problem: the remote control was not working and i had to wait 1 day until they checked it.
Second: very small sauna
Third: the selection on food in the morning was pretty low.
Forth: the dinner room was like a 3* hotel.
Fifth: i had to pay 50 chf (55 $) for 4 days of WIFI and it was really slow (it was dificult to read the newspapers on the iphone)
And now to the positive:
First: pretty central, 3 min from the mainstreet.
Second: very clean and renovated bathrooms.
Third: food on the evening was pretty good and the young stuff was really friendly

Very comfortable and clean hotel with friendly and helpful staff. Nice breakfast with good selection of breads. No tea or coffee making facilities in the room or snack service and the location of the hotel meant that we had to walk quite a long way into the town centre to find any shops or cafes open. If I returned to Davos for a conference then I would choose a hotel the other side of the convention centre in the main town centre. Quite a lot of things seemed closed, probably because June is low season for a ski resort, and the weather was cold and wet - didn't see the tops of the mountains at all.

We stayed for just 1 night to take advantage of morning skiing the next day. Generally the place seems to be very well run, clean, quiet and comfortable. However 3 things stood out:
1. It's not within easy walking distance of, well, anything - train stations, cable cars, nightlife (a ten minute walk is ok when you not laden down with skiing gear though).
2. The service was excellent, except for one middle aged lady who seemed to be the boss in the restaurant . She seemed to think that all this was beneath her and was too busy looking aloof to crack a single smile.
3. The best laugh came when my friend ordered the fruit selection for dessert at dinner. What he was presented with was 1 x Apple, 1x Orange, 1 x Kiwi Fruit. On a plate. It was almost surreal and was the cause of some amusement among us.

Overall though the general impression was very good, recommended.
