A historical hotel 100 years old - but should have been since then renovated
Posted Feb 3, 2010
The setting of this beautiful, historical hotel from more than 100 years old is great, and has direct access to a smallish private skiing area, which actually turned out to be very nice, as there were not so many people skiing. Beautiful views over Davos. But the hotel definetely and deperately would need renovation, now I am not surpriced why a hotel in famous Davos and with this great location was so inexpensive. Rooms were very basic and the hotel services, such as sauna and pool had seen their best times (some 50 years ago). Breakfast was good and the lobby areas etc looked nice and historical, but I certainly would not come here for a holiday again. The service was lousy, seemed as all personnel were trainees (probably true). The elevator did not work (I stayed in 3rd floor, so with the ski boots it is a challange), and there was no note of this on the door of the elevator and you just stand there and wonder why does the lift not come while several hotel personnel walkds by and says nothing. Overall the service was really unprofessional. If the hotel undergoes a renovation, with this location it could be luxury hotel.
