“Brilliant hotel. Food hit & miss, but overall brilliant.”
Reviewed 30 March 2014

This is a brilliant hotel. The interiors are stunning - fully deserves its place on design hotels.com. The location is brilliant - right on the tree lined slopes just outside St Moritz, which is just a 5 minute drive. And brilliant staff - cupcakes on my birthday a nice touch, but not just an empty gesture. Friendly, intelligent, helpful, insightful - top, top drawer people.
One criticism: food is hit & miss. Everything in the Italian restaurant tasted the same and felt like food for my one-year-old: tasteless and textureless. But the resident baker is a genius, so just load up on bread & cakes.
Overall, this is a fantastic hotel.

It was my first time in this place and it was great, especially the staff and the service.
The rooms were great, as well as the food.
It is a place to visit twice a year; summer and winter :-)
No need to say that the place is highly recommended.

The Nira Alpina is a nice place and for sure the best spot if you ski at Corvatsch, the cable car is just some step above the hotel and there is even an elevator to bring you up. The rooms are confortable and big we share it with our daughter. At the top floor you have the restaurant and a very nice bar with a fire place. The restaurant is the same for breakfast and for dinner and you have other 2 places where you can dine. Actually we tried just the one at the top floor and maybe because our venue was quite numerous our service was a bit dissappointing, they forgot my main course and I received it when all others where finished. Prices? well, your in St.Moritz therefore don't expect bargain food and especially the wine is quite expensive.

Great location, excellent service, beautiful interior and cosy atmosphere, stunning views and outstanding food! The best ski in / out hotel in the resort. Night skiing on friday nights, slope just above the hotel! Good value for money in St Moritz resort! We were blessed with amazing snow conditions. Cannot wait to go back!

We stayed 2 nights for an anniversary trip and were delighted to have chosen Nira Alpina. We spent some time comparing prices with other 4 star hotels and chose Nira Alpina based on their pics and previous reviews. We were not dissapointed. The hotel has a very "boutiquey" feel to it with each floor and area feeling small and intimate but not too small.

Staff were incredbly friendly and accommodating (if not brilliantly informed about local attractions) and althought the hotel is situated outside St Moritz, its only about 7 mins drive from town in the snow. The room (mountain view) was very well appointed and filled with lovely toiletries and robe/slippers. The spa is small but beautifully presented (the clothes optional is not what us Brits are used to but I believe the spa is only busy in evenings - earlier in the day you can have the spa to yourself)

All in all a great hotel and much, much, much nicer than anything price comparable in the St Moritz vicinity which is full of pricey much stuffier options.

Nira Alpina overall is very beautiful and cozy. The decor is quite tasteful with extensive use of pine and leather. Heavy draperies provide warmth and darkness when you want it. The beds are comfortable with fluffy duvets and soft sheets. The public areas are all appealing and warm in their own ways. The lunch restaurant is warm and relaxing with sheepskins on the chairs and a great little tasty menu -the barley soup is to die for. The Fondue hut is cozy with sheepskin covered benches and barstools, a huge pine table and a very nice guy behind the bar playing amazing music. Breakfast has a well varied selection which is healthy and delicious with a breathtaking view and a terrific professional staff. The tiny spa is quite relaxing with vast selection of treatments, The bakery is adorable and a feast for the eyes as well as the palette. The kids area has plenty to do and a great staff to watch the little ones. The hotel is very conveniently located literally across from the cable car, has a ski room where you can store your things and an indoor bridge to the ski lift. The staff at the front desk are extremely helpful, professional and accommodating - particularly Giannis who we thank for contributing to the ease and comfort of our travels. The only con of this hotel for us is an unprofessional staff member - Theda who several times made us uncomfortable with her unfortunate attitude and disdain for guests. Because of the convenience, comfort, service and beauty of this hotel, I would happily return.
