We spent one week at Giardino Mountain Hotel at St. Moritz. It was our first experience in this place, also we know St. Moritz and most of its Hotels. We enjoyed Giardino, with its Relaxing atmosphere. It is a top Hotel with 3 restaurants and the top rated restaurant ECCO deservices the 2 Guide Michelin stars. We do recommend the Hotel highly, also for families, very friendly and helpfull staff. It won't be our last time at this Resort.
Most hotels in the St Moritz area have been around for decades. As a result they are decorated with dark carpets, dark wood, antique chandeliers and very formal, uninviting dining rooms. Further many have small guest rooms as is expected in old European hotels. Giardino by contrast is an upscale chalet style hotel that has been tastefully renovated. The room furnishings are clean and well designed. Some rooms are rather small (not much bigger than the area of the bed) but some rooms are large by European standards. We stayed in a suite which was very spacious and comfortable. The staff is excellent and they really understand the meaning of "hospitality." The inclusive breakfast was excellent. The hotel is a short drive from the ski slopes but the hotel provides transportation to and from the lifts. The only critique I would offer is the following: 1 - The beds are a bit too firm for my liking but the hotel provided mattress pillow tops that corrected the issue and 2 - While the hotel provides transportation to and from the ski areas, they do not generally provide car service to other destinations and taxi rates are outrageous in St Moritz (like $25 for a 4 minute ride / $50 for an 8 minute round trip - no joke!) The bus service is rather convenient during the day but not so much during the night. On a separate note St Moritz itself is a sleepy town - there is not a lot of excitement to be found in the evening but of course this shouldn't be a deterrent if you are going to ski during the day and relax at night. Finally a special shout out to the concierge for recommending Bellavista for dinner - excellent. Overall a great hotel with excellent service.
We were offered a night in this hotel and arrived not knowing what to expect. We were collected at St. Moritz station and whisked away to the hotel by a friendly driver, our bags being delivered starlight to our room. Reception great: stress-free as you are lodged in a very comfortable log-fire lounge/bar. The room was very nice, though at first you need a map to find it....! I had the pool/jacuzzi all to myself so that was a bonus. Dinner was really good in a delightful restaurant with excellent service and a magnificent wine list. Breakfast was equally good and we were disappointed when the time came to leave.
Totally love this hotel. Been coming for years and pretty much everyone else is a regular too.. it’s not over to top St Moritz glamour.. it’s just right. Low key place where you can hide if you want to.. Service is absolutely amazing ... it’s the kind of hotel where they just remember your name magically.
For two days we had an amazing days at this hotel. They have bikes for rent and we did a great tour around st moritz. They staff are very helpful and the room is very chanrming. We had an upgrade and the view to the mountaim is beatiful. The breakfast was delicious too. My husband loved the cheese selection. I recommend this hotel.
Spending New Years Eve in St Moritz is always going to cost, however, I think Giardino may have gone a bit too far with the prices for what is on offer. The room was a good size, with good amenities, bathroom also spacious. Eating options we found a bit limited and breakfast was a bit of a mess , people running everywhere. Hotel service was good, staff helpful and polite. If you are looking for a quiet break I would recommend somewhere less "child friendly" though. Nice views, easy transport to town and walking to the lake.
A resort style ambiance hotel with excellent facilities such as gym, spa and sauna. A brand new establishment, despite lack of knowledge of some of the new staff, a very satisfying and enjoyable stay. We had excellent food in the bar. Quinoa salad and mountain cheese burger "a must try"!.
Beautiful property, in a nice little village a few minutes from St. Moritz, but definitely quieter. Excellent service, excellent rooms, super clean, very design and very nice staff. I have just words of praise.
We (myself and two friends, all males in our late 20s) had the pleasure of staying at Giardino Mountain for one night on a quick visit to St. Moritz. First impressions were WOW, we walked in and one of the lovely reception staff was waiting with a friendly smile and already knew our names before we had a chance to give over our information. She made us comfortable in the lounge area with welcome drinks which made a very pleasant and calming check in experience. Further to that the hotel manager Mrs Katrin Rufenacht personally came and introduced herself and welcomed us to the Hotel. It made us feel very welcome and at home, a personal touch that is appreciated and often lost on large scale luxury properties. We wanted to have dinner in the Hotel restaurant Stuva, to which Katrin kindly took care of for us and made a reservation to suit our time. We had two rooms and both were very nice, comfortable and calming. Beautiful furnishings, large bathrooms, balconies, plush bed linen, natural timber colours... One of, if not THE best, hotel we stayed in on our 3 week European holiday. We were given a tour of the boutique property and all facilities were pointed out to us as well as all relevant information. We had about 4hrs to kill before our dinner in Stuva so we decided to use the hotels spa facilities. They were perfect for unwinding and relaxing after driving through the alps from Austria. We used the pool, Finnish sauna, steam room, and whirlpool. All spa facilities were spotless, well maintained, relaxing and just the perfect way to wind down before taking dinner. We then enjoyed our dinner at Stuva, a typical swiss mountain restaurant with dishes specialising in the local cuisine. The food and wine was amazing, the service was outstanding, so warm and friendly yet still very professional. The manager Katrin also stopped by to see how we were enjoying our dinner and our stay, again a warm and personable touch that was greatly appreciated. We also observed her having light conversation with other guests and by the smiles on their faces, it was very much appreciated by all. Pure class. Breakfast the next morning was sumptuous, generous and delicious! Buffet style whilst being able to order hot freshly prepared dishes like eggs benedict etc. In summary, this hotel is a very finely tuned property, down to every last detail, no matter how great or small. Everything was calming, relaxing and perfect to unwind and enjoy the upper Engadin. Every staff member we encountered was genuinely friendly and caring, polite, conversational and professional. Finally the Manager Mrs Katrin Rufenacht is, I believe, the reason this hotel is a very well functioning property. She was on top of every detail, seen interacting genuinely and with warmth with all the guests, ensuring everything was as it should be. We felt at home at Giardino Mountain, which is a very good measure of a hotel, especially when you're on the other side of the world. Everything was perfect, we couldn't recommend it enough.
I routinely stay in a hotel around 150 nights a year, and having spent 5 nights at Giardino Mountain I can safely say you will never regret staying here. The staff are all incredible, the level of service is exceptional and incredibly consistent among all the friendly staff members. The breakfast is superb and the staff put up with our party spending a good couple of hours enjoy enjoying it daily. The decor of the hotel is extremely tasteful, it feels homely yet still managing to feel special. The beds are fantastically comfortable. The hotel will allow you to chose one of a number of pillow options if the stock ones don't suit you. The hotel provided free transfers to several nearby attractions and this allowed us to really make the most of our stay. Finally, this Summer the complimentary lift passes we received also made it easy to get the most from the valley. In summary I had the most memorable hotel stay I have had in years, I truly didn't want to leave and I am sure I will return again in the future. My only suggestion to improve the guest experience would be to extend the hours of the Spa, pool and gym, it was a beautiful facility and I would have liked to be able to use it after 8pm at night.
