Mountain JewelPosted Aug 23, 2013 on Hotels.com
An outstanding spot to start your tour of the mountains: pleasant hotel, somewhat run-down, but with tons of genuine charm and comfort. Good service, excellent breakfast and facillities, staff is attentive and organizes programs every Wednesday should you need suggestions how to spend time. Too nice to miss. Bathrooms fully functional, could do with a refurbishing to 21-century. Annoyingly, no TV in the room: poor choice, isolation from news should be by choice.

Fabulous locationPosted Aug 7, 2013 on Hotels.com
The view from the front of the hotel was fantastic, especially having arrived from a flat desert environment. Access from Davos Platz is only via the funicular railway, however, the service runs regularly and with typical Swiss efficiency. The hotel was clean, the staff friendly and helpful. Its not 5* and so no TV in the room, which is sometimes not a bad thing, but there is good wifi internet throughout the hotel. I definitely plan to stay again, and will encourage friends and acquaintances to do the same.

Paradise on the Earth!Posted Jul 18, 2013 on Hotels.com
Had a great stay at this charming Belle Epoque hotel, an ex-Sanitarium dating back to 1900-ish. Excellent view of the valley below and the mountains across from the front garden. To wake up to that view, try to book a Room with Balcony (south facing side) rather than a room with mountain view (north facing side). Excellent food even for vegetarians and ample range in buffet breakfast. Arriving in Davos, go to Schatzalp Seilbahn on the Promenade which gives direct access to the hotel at the top (no access for driving up but it is possible to walk up on a wide dirt path if you have legs for climbing up - I walked down next morning and it was fun 45mins). Cable car ticket is included free of charge in the room cost that means unlimited up and down trips between the hotel and the town (Davos Platz Promenade). Finding the logistics of car parking was a bit of guess work which became clearer when asked at Schatzalp Seilbahn ticket office: They keep a list of room bookings and will give you a parking permit for Hotel Europe car parking 100m down the Promenade on the right hand side). Come ready to the ticket office with 50CHF as deposit for parking and cablecar pass. The hotel will issue the contactless pass for the cable car when checking in. They also eventually bill you for parking at 20CHF per day. Promenade is a one-way road (except for buses) so you have to access it from the East side and then drive West. Alles klaar and Swiss efficiency when you have done it once.

Good valuePosted Apr 5, 2013 on Hotels.com
Despite the hotel being a bit old and run down in some areas the hotel deal we received offered excellent value for money. The location of the hotel is fantastic and many features of the hotel are still excellent. I would recommend this to a family looking for a nice relaxing alpine stay.

Great sledding destination!Posted Feb 14, 2012 on Hotels.com
This hotel is quite charming in its public spaces with a lovely fireplace and comfortable sofas and chairs to enjoy the evening listening to live music. The outdoor "Beach" for snacks and drinks offers a terrific view. The rooms are spacious but not luxurious. Comfortable and adequate. No TV in rooms, but wi-fi. The big draw for us were the two excellent, well-groomed sledding runs from just steps outside the door. Breakfast buffet offered a good selection of hot and cold choices. Could have used more local info (or ANY info) in the room.

Nice, but...Posted Sep 2, 2011 on Hotels.com
We went in the summer, FYI. Having to take the train up and down is fun, though inconvenient. Close to hiking trails and an absolutely fantastic view. The only real problem with the place is that it's so run down. Looks like there hasn't been any real maintenance done in 30 years. The staff is very helpful and the breakfast was great. Also, parking is 20 CHF a day, which they don't tell you.

Hotel Schatzalp - step back in timePosted Aug 15, 2010 on Hotels.com
I spent 4 nights at the Schatzalp in July 2010 for the Swiss Alpine Marathon. Perched on the hills above Davos, you need to take a funicular railway to the hotel. It's a short trip, from the middle of town and the railway goes every 15 minutes. The hotel is a beautiful old classic and although it is a little tired in some places it retains many original features and much of it's charm for doing so. The views are spectacular - over the town and across the valley - from the rooms at the front. While my room wasn't luxurious it was clean, tidy and more than large enough. It also had a large terrace with table and sun loungers. The room was decorated with traditional wood panelling and it's good that this hasn't been renovated over. The bathroom is small but has s good, powerful shower. There is no TV (a good thing, there is one in the bar) and free wifi. The staff were superb - very friendly and accommodating. I had a great time at the Schatzalp and wouldn't hesitate to go back.

You can't ski-in and ski-out.Posted Mar 30, 2010
The hotel has character, the bedrooms are spacious, the staff helpful and the public rooms elegant. However, since we previously stayed there, it has become impossible to ski from the Shatzalp to the Davos ski pistes. This means that you have to go down on the funicular railway and then catch a bus to the Parsenn funicular. This is a serious inconvience and would cause us not to return.

Back to the pastPosted Mar 17, 2010
This is a very special hotel. It is like going back in the past. We felt the atmosphere of what it was like 100 years ago. Not a place for party but much more for relaxing. The only activity that I did was taking a sauna after ski It is classy service in an old hotel. The hotel is quiet and up in the mountain with great view.
