Reviewed 15 July 2014 via mobile

We had high expectations for this place - and they were met! On check in we were greeted by the manager. We got a nice tour of the hotel and it's services.

Nice room, although maybe a little small and lacking with extras. But bed was magnificent, and it was very clean.

Food was spectacular. Great service and friendly staff. They really make you feel at home. Although this is a high class hotel it have a very friendly atmosphere. It's very down to earth and not full of jetsetters and newly rich people. 100% class.

The most negative is the hotels fitness room. Very small and badly equipped. Could have been much better!

Will definitly return some day.

Stayed: July 2014

You want an old fashion family owned hotel with Swiss attitude ? Well, you wont find better then this very often. Take full board, your skis and enjoy true service. Long journey by train to get to St-Moritz but the vue will make the trip shorter.

This is a very nice old fashioned grand hotel where the owners take great care to offer a personal service.
The hotel is kept in perfect condition.
Beware that all the rooms are very different: some are very old style while others are more modern. Most rooms on the higher floors offer fantastic views.
The hotel has a frequent shuttle to the nearby Corvatsch ski area.
It's a relaxing place outside of St Moritz without the hip and fashion people.

This is an exquisite place, not at all a typical five-star hotel. Following more recent architectural interventions, one can enjoy beautiful juxtapositions of old and new, e.g., the main entry and its overhanging roof, public spaces on the main floor, added staircase to the top floors, etc.
Hotel management and the staff are all extremely friendly, atmosphere is serene, food delicious. We enjoyed every moment of our stay!

Not far from St-Motitz and yet worlds apart, the Waldhaus in Sils-Maria is like entering the gentle world of a forgotten era. I think the fact that the hotel is privately owned by an old local family makes the difference: as soon as we got to the check-in counter the elderly owner came and introduced himself, as if this were a small inn with just a few rooms. In fact this is a big and rather grand old dame of a mountain hotel, well renovated, yet still very old fashioned in the old Swiss tradition. I loved the live chamber orchestra that played early evenings in the grand salon; it felt like being a very glamorous character in an Agatha Christie novel - despite the fact that not much happened, certainly no murder, to my knowledge..

Room Tip: There are many types of rooms with different price ranges, so hard to tell

You may find several luxury hotels with grand architecture in Switzerland. Sadly most of them, although having maintained their architectural legacy and character, succumbed to modern hotel management standards.
In this case you will be inmersed in not only a wonderful historic building on top of a hill overlooking a picturesque Swiss village and lake, but also in the atmosphere of how these traditional Grande Dames where managed many decades ago.
Huge elegant public rooms, afternoon tea with soft music beeing performed by a quartet, a grand restaurant in the old tradition plus an a la carte boutique swiss restaurant for a variation, reception greeting and checked-in by a member of the family that has owned the hotel for more than a century, a Concierge in the old professional tradition, daily activities program, and a general atmosphere of a place that is special.
We reserved a Junior Suite. We where shown to two rooms to choose from. We selected the furnished in classic style not because the other, furnished in the original turn of the century style what not nice, but because the bathroom turned out beeing larger. They also have modern furnished room but we prefered to stay away from them.
Our room was of above average dimension, with a modern beautiful bathroom with separate shower cabin and segregated WC + bidet.
The bed was king size very comfortable and the wardrobe space enormous. The shutters made sleeping very easy in total darkness and nothing was missing from what you would expect in a 5 star hotel with all the contemporary conveniences.
The breakfast and dinner served at the grand restaurant where excellent and the service of all the staff we met superb.
The swimming pool and Spa are at the level of this cathegory hotel with nothing to critize.
Complimentary WIFI works well but slow. I measured a speed of little above 1 Mbps, which is not high enough and below the standard of 5 star hotels.
In conclusion : a special experience in a luxury hotel in a very pretty location only 15 minutes from St. Moritz, sorrounded by woods and lakes.

My family has been enjoying this wonderful hotel for about 15 summers now. With an idyllic setting amid majestic mountains, blue placid lakes and green, green trees, coupled with efficient, friendly staff and management, the Hotel Waldhaus Sils always delivers.

Well appointed guest rooms with amazing views and fresh air in abundance is very relaxing. An indoor pool and sauna to wallow in after a day of exploring the numerous hiking trails and alpine wildflowers is very welcome. Retail therapy when needed can be found in St Moritz, just a short drive from the hotel.

Culinary works of art are served at the Main Dining Room and the Arvenstube for dinner. Breakfast is a buffet and weather permitting dine al fresco for lunch at the terrace while listening to the melodies played by the Trios Farcas.

We are already very much looking forward to our next vacation in June 2014.
