Arrived in St. Mortiz off the Glacier Express. As soon as we stepped off the train we were met by the shuttle bus (mini-van) driver for the Laudinella. Was not expecting this so it was a big bonus. The hotel is not situated near the train station so you will need to organise a taxi if the shuttle bus is not around.
The reception staff were efficient and helpful, although not overly friendly. The lobby and communal areas are large and there is plenty of room to play cards in the lounge (important for us). There was a cat wandering around reception that seems to live there, very cute, affectionate and well looked after.
We were travelling with another couple, but for some reason we were given rooms on totally different sides of the hotel. We booked with the same travel agent at the same time, so I'm not sure how this happened. In any case it was a little inconvenient as our elevator was located next to reception, while theirs was located through a rabbit warren of corridors at the other end of the hotel.
The rooms were very sterile and bare, and the tv was a little old. The bed was comfortable but the pillows were tiny. Our room was well insulated from the cold outside and the noise in the hallway. The bathroom was huge, but then our travel companions had a tiny bathroom, so I guess it's luck of the draw. There is free Wi-fi
There are numerous dining options available, from asian cuisine to an italian pizzeria. I honestly can't remember them all, but there's no need to leave to the hotel as everything you need is right there. Breakfast buffet is very good if you can contend with all the elderly German trekkers.
Have stayed elsewhere in St. Moritz, but for value for money in Switzerland, I recommend this place.
