Lovely place in a quaint town

The staff were very friendly. The hotel and accommodations were beautiful. The buffet was magnificent. We couldn't have asked for a more pleasant experience from the moment we walked through the entrance.

Legendary hotel with great ser....

My wife and I were visiting St Moritz but found the hotels too expensive. So decided to stay a few miles away from St Moritz in a town Samedan. Hotel Bernina is an 1865 property in a legendary building. It has large rooms overlooking the Alps. The Front office staff was very friendly and professional. It was a convenient 15 minute bus or train ride to St Moritz and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Only two issues- their restaurant staff needs to provide better food and service and the elevator needs to be replaced.

Beautiful, relaxing stay

The hotel was lovely and clean, with spacious rooms and all the amenities we needed. The breakfast was fantastic, and everyone we met was very friendly and helpful. We visited in the off-season, so most of the town was closed down, but that was actually kind of nice.

Grand and Gracious

While traveling from Lake Como, and hoping on the Bernina Express scenic train in Tirano, we decided to take a couple of days and explore the region around St Moritz. After seeing what travel guru Rick Steves had to say about the area, we decided on Samedan as a good central base. This turned out to be a good decision, although traveling to that area of Switzerland in May turned out to be a bad decision. We arrived at he Samedan train station and the hotel was a very convenient 10 minute walk away. (Most people would say 5 minutes, but With a bad knee I do not like climbing hills.) At check in, the cheerful and helpful staff gave us passes for all local transportation within he St. Moritz valley. We were given a beautiful room on the second floor with a large terrace overlooking the village and circling mountains. I think there are only two rooms like this in the hotel because the terrace is over the breakfast room at the back of the building. Other rooms had small balconies. The hotel itself dates from the mid 1800’s and has that grand style, but with all the modern updates that you expect in a luxury accommodation. There was a large window in addition to double patio doors opening out to our private terrace. Heavy designer draperies and an elegant leather loveseat made he room warm and inviting. The bathroom was spacious and well designed with a bidet and huge triangular corner jetted tub (with additional shower fittings) that could easily fit 2 people. Quality toiletries were supplied instead of the generic wall mounted soaps that are now so common in Switzerland. The hotel has a grand staircase, as most buildings of that era, that has a cozy elevator tucked into the central core. It is a bit rickety and small but does the job. We were told that there was a spa downstairs that were welcome to use but their masseuse was not available during our stay. My husband and I decided to check out the spa and were told that we would have to walk downstairs to use it as he elevator did not go there. We proceeded down the first flight and found empty massage rooms. Down a one flight and we found a hot tub, not much larger than he bath in our room, with tepid and dirty water. We passed. Down a third flight of stairs was a sauna. I wished I would have been forewarned that I would have to climb down (and back up) 3 flight of stairs to use the facilities because I doubt I would have bothered with it. That was really my only disappointment with the hotel, but I think it would take a major renovation to retrofit another elevator into this historic building. As most hotels in Switzerland, the Bernina had two eating areas; the breakfast room and the restaurant. We happily sampled both of these facilities. The breakfast room was a spectacular room with high ceilings, bountiful windows, elegant chandeliers and an incredible view of the surrounding mountains. In another era it may have been a grand ballroom...this would not surprise me. Today, the warm peach walls and genuine vintage travel posters give the room a cheery ambience and made eating breakfast a celebratory event. As for the breakfast selections available, I can say that absolutely anything you could possibly desire is offered here...from healthy make your own smoothies and juices with a juicing machine, to decadent cream custard filled croissants. Eggs, bacon, sausage, fruits, cereals, cheeses, breads, meats, veggies, yogurt, juices, coffees, teas.....anything you could possibly want. When traveling in Switzerland, you will find the food is quite expensive. I believe that if you can find a hotel that offers such a sumptuous breakfast, it justifies the additional expense. We also had a couple of dinners in their restaurant. It is quite different from he breakfast room. While that is all chandeliers and grand vistas, he dining room has the appearance of a cozy Swiss cottage, with golden knotty pine paneling and built in cupboards and booths. Antique copper cookware is scattered around for decor...it was probably left over from the original kitchen. Here is a wood burning brick oven and pizzas are popular with both guests and locals. We dined on home made tomato cream soup, an eggplant first course that was the best I ever had and roast venison with a wild berry compote. Everything done to perfection. It was easy to see the area from the hotel. We used our free transportation pass to hop on a bus directly across the street from the front door. It took us right to St. Moritz in about 15 minutes. We could have also taken the train. We found St Moritz disappointing. It didn’t have the charming ambience of he little village of Samedan and absolutely everything was closed for the season. We stopped at the tourist into center and they sadly confirmed the whole town shuts down in May...stores, museums, lifts, hotels, restaurants. The place was a ghost town full of locked upscale boutiques. I guess I won’t buy a $10,000 watch today. We were happy to return to the comforts of the Bernina. I guess I could have went hiking in the mountains if I was so inclined, but I preferred sipping tea from my terrace and enjoying the view. I highly recommend the Hotel Bernina 1865 and would recommend it for a traveler any time of the year.

A good stay at the Alpes

The place was good, the staff was helpful. The rooms were OK. The breakfast hall had a great view - large windows, variety of choices for a good snack. The restaurant was also nice and quiet. The hotel is close to St. Moritz and it is a good option for people who want to visit the place.
