I don't know how I ended up booking this place because our Chur night was only a few hours to board the Bernina Express in the morning. This hotel is about 20 mins bus ride from the train station although the were buses every 10 mins. It's more like a B&B types although the rooms were quite nice. They don't really help with taking your luggage to your rooms and also don't have room service. They do have coop at about 10 mins walk. The breakfast was very basic with boiled eggs, cold cuts, cheese, fruits and croissants. The restaurant had some decent pasta and risotto we had but slightly expensive. Although the hotel wasn't bad, there are so many hotels right next to the train station. So if you need to just spend the night I would suggest to stay near the station and avoid the 20 mins ride.

The rooms are simple, very clean and descent. There is no mini bar. The location is ok. There are restaurants, fast food, supermarkets around. The bus stop is outside of the hotel so it is easy to go to the center of chur. You can also walk to the center for about 20-30 minutes. The stuff is polite and the breakfast is good.

The room is very clean and beautiful decorated. Staff is very helpful and friendly. Nice and comfortable bed. Bathroom is also very clean. It is near highway and would be very good if you are travelling by your own car. Very good scenery. Bus stop is also in front of hotel. Weather is very nice. If someone is planning to travel through Bernina Express, then should stay a night here and take the Bernina which starts in the morning (around 8:30). Railway station is almost 10 minutes away by taxi. For taxi you have to ask and inform reception, they will arrange it and it will arrive exactly on time. If someone likes hiking or cycling, then should stay here. Cable car (chair lift) is around 2 kms away. You can reach there by bus. Then after going on top, you can do everything, beautiful scenery. There is a special track for cycling. There are few cafes up. Chur is a calm and nice place.

Room is quite new/renovated and in very good shape. Location is at exit of highway and close to city center and at the crossroad to many great locations. Breakfast was very good and offered lots of choices.

Only stayed here on business for 2 nights but for the little time I spent here it was a decent hotel, clean and comfortable set in a picturesque location. Breakfast was limited but what was there was nice.

The rooms are absolutely clean and it was the most comfortable bed I ever had in a hotel. Staff is very helpful and friendly. There is noting to complain. Great place if you are traveling as it is close to the highway.

We ended up at the Hotel Sommerau because there was a "Festival of the 60's" in town during our stay--but we ended up being very happy with the option. The hotel was only a 25 minute walk from the train, and our room was very comfortable. We had an excellent dinner at the attached restaurant, and were provided with a truly sumptuous breakfast buffet. The staff was excellent...and, thankfully, spoke English flawlessly!

We stayed only one night as we had an appointment the next day. The lady at the reception was extremely nice and did everything to make us feel comfortable. We had dinner in the restaurant which was very good although it was quite late in the evening. Parking was no problem at all. Breakfast the next day was the normal fare that you receive. The nice thing came slightly later when it turned out that the hotel was owned by a fellow Swede.

The rooms are nice and comfortable, and the location convenient for a one night stopover if traveling long distance. The service at the restaurant was not as nice. The reception gives you vouchers for drinks at the restaurant, but then they charged them anyway... When I pointed that out, I was then first told that I had already paid with my card (i.e. the error is on your side, this is rather common Switzerland), and then refunded in coins.

This hotel, is made in a motel layout. The rooms are spacious. Ground floor rooms has access to the garden, and all rooms have their own parking lot directly in front of the room door. The breakfast has a decent selection of different items, including real Swiss cheeses...
