“Very Nice Chalet in Gstaad”
Reviewed 15 January 2013

This is a very nice Chalet/Hotel
Located on the begin of the pedestrian area, its no problem to unload your car in front of the main entry and park behind and take a different entrance.
The staff is very friendly, we have been travelling with 2 kids and we got an upgrade to a bigger room.
The rooms are very warm, and the bathrooms have a good standard.
It was quiet silent and we could not hear other guests.
I would recommend for family ( there is no lift for buggy )

The Rossli appears to be a charming local institution and enjoys a great location right on the main promenade in Gstaad. We stayed at the recommendation of friends who are 20 year veterans of Gstaad.

The rooms were nice if simply furnished - in keeping with a three star hotel. The vintage photos and prints hint at the history of both the town and the establishment. Breakfast is included in the room rate as is Wifi and parking.

The staff was overall much more welcoming than the hotel management. If you want to be in the thick of the Gstaad scene, then this is a reasonable option. For a bit extra, the Bernerhof Hotel (4 stars) is also on the promenade. It has nicer rooms and better facilities like an indoor pool and sauna plus a couple of restaurant options.

We've been to the restaurant, wich is inside the Hotel... The food was very nice, and the fondue was delicious. They sai that that was the first hotel in Gstaad area, and it is walking distance for city main road (shops, bars, etc).

The family-run Post Hotel Rossli in the center of Gstaad embodies the essence of a Swiss family-run Chalet. Our room was large, quiet, very clean and nicely appointed with wonderful views of the Alps and grazing sheep. The staff is knowledgeable and helpful with respect to cycling routes, restaurants, hikes and other outdoor activities in the Gstaad area. We went 3 days without the use of our car – you can walk, hike, bike and take the trams and gondolas everywhere. The Gstaad Sports Complex is very close by, offering tennis (indoor and outdoor), swimming and much more.

The hotel is extremely cute and so are the rooms, really what you expect from a chalet in quaint ski resort but the room smelt bad and a strong perfume was present, which I understood was to mask bad sewage odors in the bathroom. Personel is friendly but owner could chill up a bit and show some delicatesse and avoid some words said in swiss-german that should not be translated if in their way...

Room Tip: avoid room on back side where the chimney of neighboring house expels bad fumes

Went to this hotel last year and happy to come back again. But I was so disappointed to find hair in the bath tub, dirty bin, and dry blood or other traces on bed sheets. Really disappointed... don't know what happened.

This was the third time we had spent Xmas at the Rossli. We were lucky this year as there had been a heavy fall of snow just before we arrived but as walkers we were pleased to find that all the paths had been cleared. We had a superior room with a balcony which faced the sun all day. Part of the reason we go to the Rossli is the food and as ever this was excellent. This hotel suits us perfectly, a very pleasant staff and the hotel provides all we need for a good holiday.
