“Tough to beat.”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

First time visitor to St. Moritz. The service and ambiance easily met our expectations.The staff as well as the other guests were polite and friendly. The restaurant experience was superb. I recommend dining at a variety of restaurants included in the half board plan either directly or indirectly. Don't miss the Kronenstübli and the Grand restaurants at the sister hotel, the Kronenhof in Pontresina, as well as the K at the Kulm.

Room Tip: I would recommend a room with a balcony facing the lake. The views in the morning at sunrise and in...

For the seasoned St. Moritz visitor the question is always : do I stay at the Kulm or the Palace?
For us it ended up often stay at the Kulm and go for an occasional dinner or night life to the Palace.
When we stayed this year again ( so often that they are writing our names on the pillows)
we where totally pleased. Good skiing, fantastic dinners and to our surprise also an entertaining night life with life music from 10 pm to 12 pm at the Miles Davis lounge.
Just enough for some drinks and still good for early skiing.

So for the Palace we only had time for an afternoon tea - but lets see what the Kulm will do
about this.

It's Saint Moritz so of course, so you expect perfection from swiss hospitality and the well-earned fame of this bulwark of St Moritz's history. You expect it and you get something that's very close as - as we all know - perfection is not of this world. Classy without being too formal, luxury but still cozy and homelike, the Kulm really is the incarnation of high-end swiss hotellerie. Two excellent restaurants (maybe the Grand does in traditional cuisine more than the K does for gourmet cuisine), a very nice Spa and swimming pool with an AMAZING view of the lake, ample rooms furnished as you'd expect from the class, and a fantastic service all around, always with the right tone, never too uptight nor too friendly. Overall, a really pleasant experience, a rare one to find even among 5 star hotels.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the lake take your breath way. Get there by using the Bernina Express train if yo...

Its the feeling of coming home. Everything perfect, this is our forth visit
to the Kulm.Its so typically Swiss,beautifully clean, wonderful food and
exceptional service.The staff and management are fantastic.
We enjoy the late summer for walking in the Engadine and discover
new opportunities each year.We are worried about affordability for
2012 as the Swiss Franc has gained huge value against most currencies.

This hotel is one of the most magnificent I have ever seen- the stunning lobbies, dinning halls, lounges, and hallways left us, yes- stunned. The service was also very friendly, with almost every hotel employee greeting you by your name as you walk by (notwithstanding one incident in which we saw one of the desk personnel mock us behind our backs).
Would choose it again in a second, and could almost guarantee that anyone would very much enjoy the Kulm.
Just so nobody should have false expectations from some reviews- while the hotel does have a limo, they also pick up guests with their other car, which is not a limo.

I've stayed in many 5 star hotels, but none come close to the Kulm. The whole ambiance of the hotel is quite different than what you experience elsewhere. I was met at the train station by a complementary car, and everything improved from there. My only complaint would be the location of the Kulm, St. Mortitz is a steep hike, and the Kulm is both the proverbial and literal pinnacle, it's up there on a steep hill. 5******'s
