“On the Nordic ski trail”
Reviewed March 16, 2014

The Hotel Europa is in a St. Moritz "suburb" called Champfer. As a result the nightly rate is less than a similar hotel in downtown St.Moritz, a significant bonus for those of us who have discovered it at no significant inconvenience. St. Moritz-bad is a 10 minute bus, 10 minute ski or 30 minute walk through absolutely beautiful scenery. The cross country ski and hiking trails (separate) are a 2.3 block walk from the hotel. The bus stop is only 2 blocks.
The hotel itself is fabulously clean and well appointed with beautiful furniture, art and windows. The pool is great for lap swimming. The hot tub and sauna are lovely. Breakfast comes with the room. The evening dining room is in the Panorama Restaurant at the top of the hotel with fabulous views. The menu is great, the food well prepared and, amazingly, the prices are
reasonable. The best feature is the manager, who was always friendly, always helpful and seemingly always available.
We were there to ski the Engadin Skimarathon. The hotel served breakfast an hour early for all the skiers who had to catch buses to the start. They were very accommodating!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony. Even in winter the south and west balconies get so much sun you can s...

We had booked this hotel based on positive reviews and looked forward to our brief stay having travelled on the Glacier Express .
The initial mistake was believing that the hotel was in close proximity of St Moritz when in reality it is a good 15 minutes drive by taxi and therefore once there it would be problematic to get back to town without having to hire a taxi.
The receptionist was very welcoming and efficient , our room had been booked for a South facing view but on entering the room we discovered that new buildings were in the course of construction and very much spoilt the vista, none the less the room itself was extremely comfortble and provided the ingredients for a quiet nights sleep.
We dined in the restaurant which was moderate in quality and but in price, however for breakfast this proved to be the biggest disappointment , the waiters including the Head Waiter were without personality and warmth , the selection of food can only be described as basic with little thought of meeting the needs of the European traveller.
We left the establishment for our return trip on the Glacier Express with an avowed intent not to come back to this hotel.

We had booked Europa hoping and expecting a unique hotel experience . What we received was a very polite but cold,business like reception.Had heard a lot about the hotel but was let down. Our Room on the second floor was comfortable and "Teaky" with a neat bathroom without any toiletries or even a dental kit. We got no view of the famed Swiss peaks or lakes.instead Ugly boxlike structures being constructed infront of our room(some kind of office blocks or apartments) . Breakfast was a fairly large spread however without any warmth or hospitality feel !!! Not an easy place to reach after getting off the Glacier Express, although we were ,very reluctantly,dropped off to the railway station on our way back in the hotel shuttle . Anyways it isnt actually St. Moritz . It is Champfer-a suburb of St.Moritz.

Having in mind St. Moritz is the pricy high roller hot spot, this hotel is one of the more affordable hotels. Most hotels in St. Moritz are large, so is this one - so if you are looking for a cosy, and charming place, perhaps one should look elsewhere. A bit unnessesary that wi-fi was extra charge, but free parking was appreciated. The room was standard, clean, friendly staff, and breakfast was included. In short, the typical hotel - nothing special.

Located outside of St Moritz in the village of Champfer, the Hotel Europa is a very good value. The daily room rate includes an amazing breakfast buffet complete with eggs, cold cuts, cheese, cereals, croissants and on and on and a five-course dinner. The dinners are quite impressive: on certain days there could be a seafood buffet as a starter and on another day a dessert buffet, both amazing. Through the hotel, one can purchase a daily ski pass for only 25€ (with a 6 day minimum). There is a nice pool, sauna and jacuzzi which are most welcome after a day of skiing. Attending a reunion of high school friends, I booked a single room and was pleasantly surprised as mine was recently renovated. It was lovely with oak floors, oak paneling and a small deck. The hotel staff is friendly and helpful.

I must say i was very disappointed with my stay at Hotel Europa: I arrived very late on a Sunday, covered in snow (for a Brazilian , it is quite a picture!) and hungry! the receptionist was colder than the snow: hardly looking at me, she was obsessed with something in the computer, gave me my key, told me the restaurant has just closed and i should eat in the "morning" (?!)
Unfortunately, other staff from the hotel were a little bit rude as well, but there are other people like the German guy helping with the transfer and one of the italian receptionist who were very nice and helpful...
The rooms are nice, but very small, the heating system can be a little bit troublesome and the internet has an outrageous price in the rooms! Breakfast is only ok, but the window view is astonishing; dinner was nice, but the price of water and non-alcohol beverages seemed an extorsion..

Unfortunately, I spent five nights in this hotel and I do not recommend it for anyone. Terrible service (complete lack of hospitality and cordiality) from the staff in the reception to the restaurant, that make you fell not welcome at all. Don't expect help with your lugagge or any kind of orientation. The hotel is not in St. Moritz actually but in Champfer (3 km away) and the buses to get there are not so frequent per hour. My room was very outdated, the shower douche was broken (Pointing only to the wall and to shower you had to hold it up all bath time long), the shutter curtains did not close completely because they were also broke and the two light spots in front of the only mirror in the room were burnout! The restaurant, oh, I got the half board option that was supposed to include a 5 course menu: don't waste your money with this low quality food and very expensive wine menu (that is not included in the price) - a bottle of a local wine that you would find for 4 euro in any supermarket there was 22, in reality you are even going to be charged for a glass of tap water! The breakfest will only offer you a minimal variety if you arrive early (up to 8) otherwise there will be lacking a lot of foods, and most of the left are low quality. There is no free wireless internet. Finally, I was very suprised in a negative way in how a Swiss Hotel - that is said to be 4 star (but it is not for sure!) treat your guests. Don't recommended: look for otherwise hotels in the area that are beterraba ranked on tripadvisor and don't waste your money on this one.
