  • 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

    Owner Response
    We are glad to hear how you loved our services beside the building with its facility and so on. Hearing that we won another regular guest makes us very happy and we are delightet in seeing you again.

  • 100% Relaxing!

    by BernardW466 on 2019-08-08 10:48 am

    Stayed recently for the second time. First visit was in March 2018 and with the snow still very much around. We decided that it would be good to see what the summer season had to offer, hence our visit. Not disappointed with either the hotel (facilites/food/staff/comfort) or the activities in the area, many suggested by the staff. Will be returning without doubt.

    Owner Response
    Many thanks for this pleasant message. We are happy, that you came back and your stay at our place was just the same as in wintertime. We are looking forward to welcoming you shortly.

    All the best and kind regards,

  • A Classic Grand Hotel with first class service

    by MicaZH1 on 2019-07-29 08:36 am

    This beautiful classical historic Grand Hotel located in a picturesque landscape of forest, meadows and lakes made our stay so special.
    The service was first class and the food delicious.
    We could completely relax. It felt like being in a different century.

  • Swiss Hospitality

    by DannyAn on 2019-07-22 08:43 am

    After travelling 7 weeks in Europe, staying at many good places, when asking myself which one is the most impressive and memorable place we had ever stayed, definitely the answer comes to the Hotel Waldhaus Sils Maria!

    From the location, view, guest rooms, facilities, F&B to Spa.... everything is impeccable and top notch, needless to say , but it is their SERVICE which makes our living experience so unique and different from others!

    Upon arrival, we're greeted and welcomed by Maria, the fourth owner generation, during the stay, again met and spoke with Michael and Claudio, the fifth generation and current management, when departure, farewelled by Maria & Felix at the hotel gate, we can see that owner family has been working diligently with passion to look after each guest and oversee the guest satisfaction infront, which is hardly seen in other places. (recalled our recent experience staying at another famous castle hotel in Europe, we never see this happen there and dont receive these sincere care and geniue respect like this at Hotel Waldhaus!

    Apart from owner management, the whole service team is friendly, polite and helpful, would like to say thanks to all and especially to Walter, Oscar, Bruno, Domingo.... from F&B team who look after us so well!

    As one leading five-star hotel in Switzerland and world alike, I am sure, they never shortage of fans and customers, but here we are still happy to recommend hotel Waldhaus to all Tripadvisor travellers!
