Stopover to get on the Bernina Express
Our room was tiny, but quaint. And, we had a large balcony which was shared with our friends who were in the room next to ours. It's a bit of a struggle to get from the train station to this hotel, with luggage in tow. But, the hotel bus gave us a ride back up to the train station when we left. The front desk people were very helpful and gave us a jar of honey when we left. It was worth taking the funicular to the waterfront, it's wonderful. We would recommend this hotel if you are in the area.

There are better places to stay
This hotel really needs an update. It’s clean and the service is fine but there are really no amenities. The bath soap and shampoo are the same. The towels are paper thin. The room is dated and modest. I would say this is a 2+ to 3 Star.
