“Great Location, Snug Sleep, Charming Town”
Reviewed 22 November 2011

This hotel is within five minutes' walk of the train station, and from here you can go to anywhere in the area. The hotel gave me a discount transport card for staying a minimum of two nights, which was great. Of course, I lost it, and my sfr 10 deposit, but they issued me another.

The staff are kind and all speak English. There is a lift, and the large rooms were very clean and comfortable, and well insulated against the cold nights. I do agree with Blondii on the somewhat odd choice of colours (grey) in the rooms, but this is no biggie because it is a good hotel in every other way. There was no mini bar in the room, but if I wanted cold water, I just put a bottle on the window sill outside and shut it out there overnight!

Switzerland is expensive, and although the rooms were a reasonable price, I found the meals in the restaurant a little pricey, although the food was good. There were a couple of other places open in the town itself (which is worth a walk around, it is lovely), but my German is next to non-existent, and I like to know what I'm eating, and what kinds are on offer, before I go in. I could have gone on the train to another town, but sometimes you just can't be bothered going out and want to go somewhere within a few minutes, especially if you've been on the go all day.

The breakfast is excellent, wide variety of tasty foods and hot/cold beverages.

Samedan is a great base for seeing all the sights in this area, and Hotel Donatz is a pleasant, comfortable, welcoming base in Samedan.

This hotel is a very good value. It is accessible to St. Moritz with a bus stop just down the street. The hotel provided a free public transit card. It is also close to the train station. The hotel is modern and well cared for. The tiny elevator was funny, but it did the job. Our room and bathroom were good size, modern, and very clean. The shower was large, but leaked a bit out the bottom. The room had a sort of sterile feeling with the gray colors used. We ate dinner at the restaurant and had a delicious dinner with good service. We especially recommend the beef flambe in mustard sauce with rosti on the side. The breakfast buffet was typical. The hotel is no frills, but an excellent choice considering the budget busting hotels in St. Moritz.
