From my perspective, it is extremely hard to predict what will be open and what will not be. At the moment, international mobility in the European Union is heavily restricted, and there is an...

Checked this out - looks quite nice, but pricing is very ambitious. Summer rates start at EUR 1,525 for the lowest category mountain view room, north of EUR 3,000 for a suite. Not quite sure what...

Cannot comment on the quality as I have not stayed, but: If you consider it, be aware that it is not actually on the beach, but set back quite a bit, with a couple of private villas inbetween. If you...

That's exactly the point. I can somewhat understand it from a hotel's perspective - this is a tough situation, especially for family-run places that do not have strong backers behind them. But it...

Thanks, that's a helpful datapoint. Looks indeed like I should cancel for the moment, and reconsider in January.

The only thing I still cannot understand is why hotels do not offer more flexible...

Thanks everyone. For the moment, I have booked Burg Vital in Lech. Fully ski-in, ski-out, next to the children's snowgarden, so pretty ideal in terms of location.

However, I am having second...

Thank you for posting this. I was considering LeCrans for a winter stay. It is sometimes advertised as ski-in ski-out, or nearly ski-in ski-out. Can you comment on how close it really is to the...

Sounds like a nice trip! I have no experience with 7132, but know the 3 others.
Buergenstock I found to be a slightly bizarre place. The hard product is excellent: >500 million of investment over 7...

Thanks - will look into it. Spent a week in St. Moritz 3 years ago at Suvretta House. Not so thrilled with the hotel, but great ski area.

If you have no reason to be specifically in Lugano, that sounds like a wise decision. There are other options relatively close by (Lake...

Gstaad Palace, Gstaad

Overall: The highlight of the trip. If you have only little time to spend in Switzerland, I would suggest you come here. The surrounding region is very picturesque, with green rolling hills, dotted...

Mont Cervin Palace, Zermatt

Overall: A very good stay. We stayed on a very good offer (stay 3 pay 2), so this came out to be the least pricy hotel of this trip by far, and had the best price/value ratio. Would I return? Yes, in...

Eden Roc, Ascona

Overall: A very positive surprise. We went in with quite low expectations we thought the highly-specific interior design (check the website) would not be our cup of tea. Also, the hotel is split...

Splendide Royal Hotel, Lugano

Overall: This conclusion of this review is similar to the one above about Kulm not a bad stay, but again unlikely to return. Another very traditional grand hotel. Beyond that, it is not quite clear...

Kulm Hotel, St. Moritz

Overall: Not a bad stay, but unlikely to return. This feels a bit stuck in the past / resting on its laurels. The target clientele seems to be regulars who have been coming for decades and don’t want...

Grand Hotel Quellenhof and Spa Suites, Bad Ragaz

Overall: A positive surprise. Convenient to reach, and well suited for e.g., a long relaxing weekend. The surrounding nature is nice but not quite as picturesque as in other parts of Switzerland,...

Feels pretty consistent with my experience. I am sure fluent Italian really helps.

If you stay in Winter, Suvretta's ski-in/ski-out location would be a big plus over the hotels in St. Moritz...
