“Cute little hotel”
Reviewed 30 January 2014

This hotel is a 5 minute walk from the main village area, or a 1 minute bus ride (helpful if you are wearing ski boots). Staff are nice. Breakfast was a typical Swiss style, as was dinner- both meat heavy but had some great options for vegetarian likes me. Rooms are a decent size, big enough for all the luggage that my father & I brought from Canada, and quiet. It seems that most rooms are newly renovated and our bathroom looked BRAND NEW.
The only thing which needs to be improved is the WIFI which is currently only available in the lobby so it gets busy at the end of the ski day when everyone comes down to check email etc.
Really well-priced for St Moritz.

The Hotel Bären is very nice and well located right on main village bus route. Rooms are all a little different but spacious. Some have a balcony. Beds were soft with a fluffy down comforter. All have great views. Staff was very very helpful. Breakfast was typical continental buffet of meat, cheese, fruit , yogurt, soft boiled eggs, and fresh baked breads. Dinners featured local fare and were simple, delicious, with beautiful presentations.

I stayed here one night while on a tour of Switzerland with Cosmos, so there were quite a few of us staying at the hotel! I absolutely loved it! It was such a cute hotel - not your typical cookie cutter hotel. Clearly an older building that is very well-kept. My room even had a small balcony! The room itself had the bed plus a separate sitting area! And a very large bathroom with double vanity sinks! Way more than I expected! Everything seemed extremely clean as well. There is a pool but we didn't get a chance to check it out. There are some shops and restaurants about a 10 minute walk into town from the hotel. Not too bad. Unfortunately, most things were closed since it was the evening in the fall - not yet ski season. Everything is fairly expensive, but very cute town! There's an amazing view of the lake with the mountains not far from the hotel!
Breakfast was very nice and well organized. With all of us on the tour there at the same time, they handled it very well! Typical continental breakfast - nothing too special there.
Overall, I loved this hotel and would definitely return! There's even a very cute dog behind the front desk who greets you and then runs back behind the desk on his own! Very homey feeling with a wonderfully smelling fireplace in the lobby! Free wifi in the lobby as well!

We have been told not to expect too much of the hotels in Switzerland. The Hotel Baren proved to be an exception to this. It has good sized bed, bath and sitting rooms and a balcony with beautiful views of the mountains behind St. Moritz.

The food was OK but not what I would normally order (Broccoli soup, ham and turkey and fruit salad).

There is no internet in the room but it is available in the lobby.

Room Tip: Unless you like carting your luggage up stairs then I suggest that you ask for a room that is close...

Hotel was dated , rooms need renovating. Fridge in room. Staff were pleasant. Bed was too soft. Pillows to flat. Carpet was very old & worn. Breakfast was very poor. They need to go to coffee making school, it tasted like dirty water. Free wifi in reception area only. As for the area I think this was the 2nd last building at the end of st moritz. But bus stop is outside hotel. 10 mins walk to centre, if you want to call it a centre, nothing but a few very expensive shops which were all closed. A few restaurants, also very expensive. But if you are coming here I suppose it's for the amazing mountains & scenery, which were spectacular.

We stayed as part of a Cosmos tour and no doubt from other reviews there are some lovely spacious rooms but ours was not. It was tiny and the bathroom had the smallest shower possible. We found the room safe in the wall at the end of the day, we'd looked everywhere around the wardrobe as usual. There was no air conditioning but we were high enough to safely leave a window open, which overlooked a construction site. Wifi worked only in the lobby and dining room.
We did have a good dinner in the restaurant. The first morning we had breakfast which was just cold selection, the other area of the dining room was sectioned off and occupied by another tour. The next morning we noticed the other area had hot food so don't know if that was available the first morning and no-one bothered to tell us or it was meant just for the other tour.
The hotel is located at one of the furthest points from town, uphill, although there is an escalator half way down to take you to the lake level.
If we were visiting again ourselves we would definitely look for a hotel closer to town.

Beautiful hotel, quaint and with picture-perfect views of snow-capped peaks. Huge indoor swimming pool with the views of the snow-capped peaks. Pure relaxation and bliss. Fast, efficient internet. Great breakfast. Spacious, comfortable room and bathroom. Nice children's play area. Lovely quaint bar and entertainment area which must be great in winter with the fireplace. Living room complete with books. Beautiful marble floors. Walking distance to shops yet quiet and a pleasure to sleep at night. Reception staff and friendly, helpful and fluent in English.

Only minor issues that I experienced were a hair in the bath that wasn't mine and a coffee stain on the breakfast table- cloth. Other than that, a magical place and I'd love to go back.
