“Good hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2012

We stayed here for just one might in transit from the glacier express to the Bernina express, so I don't get time to explore the hotel fully.

Staff were pleasant, room was nice, small with a view of the trees at the rear. Room was the most expensive in the whole trip, but it is st Moritz! Bed comfortable and shower over bath was good.

Great views of the lake and very close to the train station. Breakfast Buffett is very extensive. I was able to fry my own egg In a small hot plate. There are cereals, breads, fruit, fresh juice squeezers, but the coffee is from a very average automatic machine.

Restaurant is very expensive, we found a good cheaper place just down the hill near the station with good steak and trout.

Room Tip: You need to pay more for a lake view. Get a free peak of the view at breakfast or on the lakeside wa...

We stayed for 3nights, we had a lovely view of the lake from our room. The beds were comfortable and the room very clean-also the bathroom which was well equipped with hair dryer and plenty of storage units. There was a T.V., safe and a fridge in the room. We also had free WiFi in our room, and although it was very cold outside -6, the room was very warm.
We used the sauna & steam room, also free to guests.
Our room rate package included breakfast buffet, which was very good, and dinner which was however rather disappointing. The hotel restaurant is quite large with bright lighting and was very busy- definitely not the venue for a romantic or cosy evening! Adequate for a large group or family just looking to eat (there was a self service salad bar) but we found the dinners almost cafeteria type and the service (although polite) a little hurried. Due to this we ate out on the last evening and the hotel refunded us CHF 20 per person for not having taken dinner.
We hoped to experience the whiskey bar, which is advertised to have the largest selection, however it was so crowded and very smokey we just couldn't stay in there.
We did enjoy our stay at the Waldhaus am See, and the staff were very pleasant. Great
lake views and would be perfect for walking in the summer, but next time I would ask for a B&B rate only. The lack of atmosphere in the restaurant and the "package dinner"in the evening really is the only thing that was disappointing with our stay here.

Room Tip: Some rooms have a lake view. There are also rooms on the ground floor if accessibility is an issue.

In a place where everything is very expensive this hotel is real value for money. The hotel is located conveniently close to the train station and 10 minutes walk to the center of town. We occupied a family room that was simple but comfortable and clean. The staff is friendly and helpful. The hotel is uniquely located at the lakeshore and has an awesome view of the lake and St. Moritz. Combination of price and location are unbeatable.

My wife and I enjoyed two nights at Hotel Waldhaus-am-See, St Moritz, last May 2011. We chose this hotel for its unique location with its great views of the lake and alps. The hotel’s minibus picking us up from the nearby station and on return was much appreciated.

Our Lakeview room, on the first floor, had access to a small deck overlooking the lake. Our room was clean and comfortable, with plenty of storage in the foyer, and the bathroom had enough space.

The highlight was the restaurant with its wonderful views of the lake, the town, and the mountains. Full-width windows, chandeliers with white linen, silver and flowers on the table set the tone.

The breakfast buffet was unbelievable with a vast array of food and drinks. We had never seen an egg boiler before, but it worked very well. You pop the egg into a wire scoop with handle hooked over the edge of an appliance with boiling water. By the time you select the rest of your breakfast, the hard boiled eggs are done to perfection. There were also small frypans on hot plates, if you preferred scrambled eggs. The quality and variety of the bread, jams, cheese, meat slices, etc were superb. The cheese was presented in a cheese wagon in the shape of a round hard cheese.

The set menu at night was excellent value with very good service.

There is a path from the hotel down to the lake for an easy stroll around the lake. The hotel is close to the railway station and bus-stop.

Room Tip: There is a lift so ask for a 2nd or 3rd floor room with lake views.

Outside of the nice lake view this hotel is as simple as things get for St Moritz. Each room comes with a VHS player and CDs from the early 80s, including Ike and Tine Turner.

Rooms are small, basic with little thought gor design. But if price and location are your two goals then it's one of the few options.
