I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights while on a couples trip with my wife and another couple.
The location of this hotel is quite unique and comes with a lot of advantages. It is basically next door to the Pontresina train and bus station. With multiple trains and buses departing for St. Moritz (and many other places) every hour, this means you have ready access to anywhere in the area at just a moments notice. However, since you're in Pontresina and not St. Moritz, you get this access at a fraction of the cost.
The second advantage of the location is proximity to the heart of Pontresina. The downtown area is a 5-10 minute, very scenic walk from the hotel. In town you can find restaurants, shops, and guides and equipment rental for outdoor activities.
If you're into cross country skiing or biking, there is a bike/ski trail that starts about 100 meters from the hotel. There is also an equipment rental shop here stocked with reasonably priced gear and expert staff. You can bike or ski to neighboring towns in a matter of minutes or hours. You can even hike, ski, or bike to St. Moritz relatively easily.
So those are the big benefits of the location. On top of that, the hotel itself is a typical Swiss 3-star hotel with some extras here and there such as heated bathroom floors. The other thing we loved about this place was the restaurant. This was some of the best brick-oven pizza we've ever had, better than most of what we had in Italy! Despite the numerous local restaurant options, we ate at the hotel's restaurant on both nights of our stay because we couldn't imagine finding anything better (and of course for reasonable prices).
All in all, I would highly recommend this hotel. It was the most expensive night's sleep on all of our trip, but as I said above it's a deal compared to what you get in St. Moritz and, as in the rest of Switzerland, you pretty much get what you pay for here.
