Chose this hotel for a few reasons, it was situated right on the lake which is the only Hotel to do so, it was a 5 minute walk to the train station and the price was very good ( it probably is dearer in the peak season), we were there at the end of season! Our view of the lake was magnificent, didn't even turn on the tv just sat in front of our huge windows until bedtime just looking at the beautiful views and lights of St Moritz. Would definitely stay here again if we ever go back. Staff were very friendly warm and welcoming, breakfast superb to go with the magnificent views, again overlooking ALL of St Moritz. We came here because we did the Glacier Express and so glad we did. I could go on forever about Switzerland, beauty every where you look! Do it!

Room Tip: I think most rooms have a view of the lake and the village, but just incase, make sure you ask for o...

Okay, I admit I am a none-skiier and visited this hotel to eat only during the summer months when the many of the other hotels are shut down! But I expected St Moritz and its hotels to be lush and glitzy; an unforgettable experience etc.

This hotel for me, is like a giant Butlins overlooking a wonderful lake. I am not knocking Butlins... but if you book to go to Butlins you know what to expect. The restaurant is vast, with no intimate spaces and if full, I can imagine noisy with no intimate space to dine as a couple.

Maybe, the hubbub of ski talk makes it vibrant!?

But expensive... it cost 49 Swiss Francs per person to basically eat beef stew. 100+ for lunch; for stew and salad. Served by the most friendliest of waiters who noticed I had a headache and offered to get me an aspirin... but who also sadly smelled so strongly of cigarettes, the smell wafting over my beef stew (Russian Beef Stew, I hasten to add)... was really off putting!

I don't know how people can afford to eat at these prices... especially for very little in return; it is crazy money! Little wonder that the place was totally deserted!

We travelled on Glacier Express for 8 hrs across Switzerland to end at St Moritz Rail Station. The Hotel is located a short distance across a short footbridge. When we got off the train, we were delighted to find a noticeboard with all the hotels, each with a intercom button. we pressed the intercom for Waldhaus Am See and instantly the hotel staff verified us and sent a van to pick us up and the lugguages. The driver was kind enough to drive us for a quick tour of the city and gave us some pointers of the city.

The hotel's architecture and furniture seem to be of Italian influence as St Moritz is quite near to Italy. The hotel fittings and design seems like an art museum with lots of wood structures.
The bathroom wares seems dated. An interesting feature of our bedrooms is that each has a big window which opens out to a veranda which we walked out to view the Lake St Moritz. This gave us a panaromic view of the Alps. We enjoyed thoroughly capturing sunrise and sunset of the scenic view.

Breakfast was served as part of the deal while dinner was paid for separately. Meals were served in the big restaurant on the ground floor. The restaurant has a high ceiling and many big windows with view of the Lake. Breakfast was generous with many kinds of bread and good choice of cheese.

Room Tip: choose room which opens out with big windows to face the alps and St Moritz Lake

This was a wonderful find at a great price as I was travelling from Bellagio to Munich. I had forgotten about their "Guiness Book of Records" largest private collection of single malt scotches in the world (not to mention their 50,000 bottle wine seller), but it probably played a subliminal role in my choosing this hotel from my online search. Very affordable (apres saison) for a single room (which was very small with a single bed); however, the other amenities, from the wonderfully appointed bath to the onsite spa facilities, along with the incredible lakefront location with easy walking distance into town, made the overall experience wonderful. Incredible staff, from the front desk to the bar and restaurant. I had an excellent dinner with fresh "spargel" and a great Tuscan wine. Again, very affordable. Met some great folks from Mittnewald in the bar after dinner and just had a very fun time chatting and sipping on a rare lable (not expensive) single malt. Yes, highly recommended.

What a wonderful location overlooking the lake & walking distance to the train station. Excellent property, Great service with smile, very good breakfast and good food for dinner.
It is little up hill so may be difficult for old people, they provide free transfer service to the station. Our children had fun riding bicycle around the lake which are provided by the hotel.

Room Tip: Choose a room overlooking the lake.

4 star quality family run with welcoming down to earth service, exceptional view and simple quality tasty food with affordable prices for St. Moritz. Free shuttle service from the train station to and from hotel, a nice 5 minute walk along the lake to elevator into town or 20 minutes along the lake and then walk up into the small town. Hotel offers free access to the mountain transport network with a 2 night stay. The sauna room and steam room are not accessible for wheelchair. This is the only hotel on the lake. The 5 star and other hotels are located above the lake or in the small village.

Room Tip: Choose a room with lake view. Also, we heard no noise even if our room was located next to the eleva...
