  • Simply wonderful

    by Sydney866 on 2020-01-17 01:38 pm

    This is our third winter at the Waldhaus, and we hope to return every year. This really is a remarkable place, not just because it is beautifully situated and appointed. It is also family run and everyone who works there is devoted to ensuring guests feel truly content and revitalized. For us, it feels like a homecoming of the happiest kind.

  • An unforgettable experience

    Thanks goodness that the Waldhaus, founded in 1908 and still run by the same family, has not been tempted (or obliged) to join a chain of hotels. From the moment you arrive you are greeted by members of the family as well as by a team of concierges fluent in various languages. All seem motivated to please their guests, and throughout our stay we were asked discreetly if there was anything that could be done to make our stay more agreeable. The spa, completed in 2016, is state-of-the-art, with various pools, hot and cold, indoor and outdoor, saunas, steam rooms etc. The treatments are inexpensive by comparison with many 5-star establishments. Four of my family had separate treatments during our weekend and all reported favourably. The demi-pension dinner is superb, with five courses and a choice within each one. We noted small pleasures like the bowls of mandarins on every floor, along with plentiful supplies of bottled water; as well as a breakfast buffet that caters to all tastes and diets. Kudos to Patrick and Claudio Dietrich, the youngest scions of the family who clearly revel in their work of maintaining one of Switzerland's greatest hotels.

  • Incredible place

    by smatamor on 2019-12-30 04:21 pm

    This is one of my best hotel experiences ever, a very special place. Have stayed in countless 5 star resorts, but this stands out because it is like going back a century in time, as if being in a movie...early 1900s elegance and luxury, in the most pristine and perfect condition. The hotel has the best customer service I have experienced in Europe, with the hotel owner greeting us with a gift and giving us farewell at the end. Loved the live music at the beautiful bar, and at the lounge. Breakfast was superb. The spa is wonderful. The nature nearby is incredible, we did beautiful walks by the lake overlooking the mountains, i will be back!

  • Charming hotel in every way---rates a trip

    by Eleanor B on 2019-08-12 11:34 am

    I recently stayed at the Waldhaus with a Swiss friend who is a knowledgeable traveler. She had told me that the Waldhaus was her favorite hotel, and now I understand why. Although the Waldhaus is steeped in fin-de si?cle elegance, it was never stuffy or pretentious. The hotel's motto, "A family affair since 1908" rings true. The owners, the Dietrich-Kienberger family, go out of their way to make their guests feel at home by mingling with guests in the hall before dinner, in the dining room after meals, and throughout the day. They want you to love the place as much as they do. Urs Kienberger, in particular, is steeped in knowledge of the hotel and is happy to share that knowledge with you in a disarmingly self-effacing way.

    I stayed at the hotel as part of a package which offered accommodation in a historic room, free transportation (buses, trains, funiculars, boat trips on Lake Silsersee) from St. Moritz to Chiavenna, as well as both breakfast and dinner. In addition, I was given a free CD and book about the region. The hotel also includes a fine day spa where I had an excellent massage (additional). There are tennis courts, a swimming pool, and free fresh fruit and bottled water constantly on offer in the hallway.

    The food was excellent. The breakfast buffet was extravagantly laid out and offered something for everyone. It featured some of my favorite French and Swiss cheeses along with Swiss meats from the region. There was also a handsome menu for those who preferred not to use the buffet. I had delicious, albeit small, Eggs Benedict and Eggs Florentine. As for the dinners, they were superbly prepared and presented three-course meals. I would recommend taking your meals at the restaurant.

    I was particularly pleased with the staff, which was conscientious, yet friendly and fluent in at least five languages. They were never confused by my language-soup of German, Italian, French and English and always polite.

    A list of activities and cultural events are posted daily. These include activities physical as well as concerts and plays sponsored by Waldhaus. I attended a concert of Romansch songs by a local choir in the church of Sils Maria. Later, I had the opportunity to meet the conductor and choir members at the hotel. The area abounds with opportunities for hikes bike rides at all levels of difficulty, and carriage and boat rides through beautiful, unspoiled mountains and villages.

    The only thing that could have improved my stay was having an electric fan or air conditioning in my room. I was there during a heat wave that made even this mountain retreat swelter in the daytime and evening. However, I was assured that this was rare.

    This was truly an experience like no other, and the Waldhaus is now my favorite Swiss hotel as well.

  • Like Staying with your Family, only Better

    by John S on 2019-08-09 03:02 am

    After staying at the Waldhaus, other hotels are bound to disappoint. No wonder most guests become regulars and come back for another visit. I loved everything about this hotel: the friendly reception, the impressive building with its vintage furniture and decoration, the rich cultural heritage that is preserved through every member of the owning family and staff, the spa which was built into a mountain next to the hotel later but boasts natural light through architectural finesse, the wine cellar and Oscar, the sommelier. There is live music every day and a fumoir to enjoy a cigar, a reading room to enjoy your book. A magical place. I will be back soon
