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.
