Massively over priced for what it is - a run down building that was no doubt very beautiful in its day but now suffers from neglect both in terms of maintenance and the attitude of its staff (who genuinely seem to wander around with an attitude of "why did i bother to get up today?"). Even the basics such as check in, check out and breakfast they treat with a surly indifference (including blanking my wife and looking to me repeatedly despite her being the person who booked, paid and had the keys in her hand). Hire sled? Rolls eyes, huffs and puffs. Get coffee? grunts and groans Checking out? 15 minutes to do the basics and the afore mentioned casual sexism. Add to that the prevalent 60-packs a day cigarette smell that permeates rooms and common areas and you've basically just paid for : - a nice view - some cats - a room so basic, worn and dirty that it makes any chain hotel or hostel look luxurious by comparison - really poor service at the end of the day its your money but the value proposition just doesn't add up unless you REALLY like nice views but basically are happy to sleep in the equivalent of a dorm room. if however (like me) you thought this would be a quaint retro hotel and a bit of a treat then you're probably about 60 years too late - any charm this place once had has since been eroded by years of neglect and indifference (likely borne from an arrogance of having such a nice location and believing no effort was needed beyond that). a real shame as there's plenty of potential but I'd recommend simply visiting the grounds , maybe having some food (i didnt try the restaurant - just had breakfast - so it might be nice?) or enjoy the sled run. staying overnight? not worth what's charged by any metric.
The hotel is in a beautiful location with excellent views of the Alps and access to hiking trails. The food was good but not excellent, service left a bit to be desired for.
Pleasure place for relax, great dinners and weets. Very good service.
Good hotel but old. Don't expect to find many things you take for granted
This place is heaven. In the first chapter of The Magic Mountain, Hans Castorp ascends the mountain and feels his concerns and the normal world are being left behind in the village below — and that is exactly the feeling of taking the funicular car up to Schatzalp. The hotel itself reminded me of The Grand Budapest Hotel, and the rooms were somewhat unconventional but very comfortable. My bed was not terribly big, but my bedroom and bathroom were both very spacious. Outside my window was a snowfield with cypress trees, and the view of the mountains from the lobby was stunning. At the lobby, or at the bar, you may meet the cats of the hotel, and they are adorable!! There is also a movie screening room called X-Ray Bar, where you can watch the films shot at the hotel (or other stuff, if you prefer). This morning I took the cable car up to a higher spot on the mountain. The whole place was covered in snow. Listening to Wagner and watching snow enveloping the mountains, which looked so grand and so still, I felt I had a religious experience.
A must visit while in Davos. Have a tea or coffee on terrace, overlooking the valley. Enjoy lunch inside as well, there is a beautiful dining hall with stained glass, vaulted ceilings, and a coterie of cats who patrol the area for creatures we don't care for. The cats are also very friendly and welcoming. Desiree the cat sat with us for a nap while we enjoyed coffee. The restaurant is a great experience, the house blend fondue is delicious and I highly recommend finishing it off with a kirsch, just to be as cliche as you can. If you are brave, you can take a sled back down, a magical experience with the right people and the right amount of kirsch. Highly recommend experience for a first time visitor!
