Reviewed 17 June 2011

I spent two weeks in Scuol and booked into the Hotel Belvédère. It turned out to be the perfect location for a perfect holiday. The room I booked was in the new wing, called 'Ala Nova', with large, modern and spacious rooms. The rooms are elegantly and comfortably furnished and offer stunning views up and down the valley. I especially enjoyed the free internet in the room. The hotel itself is a historical building but has been refurbished completely and is now a charmin combination of old and new, old and modern.

If you decide to stay half-board (and you should, it's so worth it!) you will have dinner in the lovely old dining room, with a five-course-menu and top-class food, with friendly, attentive and competent waiters. Breakfast is very good as well, there's nothing you'll miss there. The hotel bar is in the new part and very modern, with comfortable seats and a crackling wooden fire.

From the hotel there is a direct connection to the thermal bath, you can just walk over in your bathrobe. There is a Spa in house, but there are also great and cheap massage possibilities in the thermal bath area. Don't miss the Roman-Irish-Spa, it's just amazing!

With staying at the hotel you'll also get a so-called Wellness-Ticket, that allows you to use all the public transport in the area, including the cable car up the mountain. Too, you're free to use the outdoor (or indoor) swimming pool.

You'll definitely enjoy your stay in Scuol when you decide to stay at the Hotel Belvédère.

The C rooms are not 4 starts superior, much rather, with indulgence, 3 stars – and that for 500 CHF the night! The amalgam of colors in the room (I’ve counted over 8 different colors) is tiring to the sight! The not matching colors and the overcrowded furniture that covers everything from rustic to modern makes you wonder if the designer was colorblind or… if there was any designer involved in the decoration of the room + bathroom.
I have been told that the cuisine is magnificent in hotel Belvedere. Maybe so but certainly not for vegetarians! The service was informed in advance that we are vegetarians and hence don’t eat meat, however we’ve been asked during the New Year’s dinner at almost every course if we eat “fois gras”, “veal steak” and other such wonderful “vegetarian dishes”. ☺ we took it with humor. What we didn’t really find funny any more was the 45 minutes we had to wait to get the dessert.
The breakfast was nice and rich.
The views are nice from the lobby, the bar and some of the dining rooms. The spa area of the hotel – although small – is really nice and enjoyable.
All in all, I would never go again to hotel Belvedere! It is incredibly overpriced for what it offers.

The first stay was pretty good; the second has caused us to never return to this hotel. Yes they screwed up the room on the first visit, but the room we had was comfy, and the association with the spa was one of the things we liked the most, and we had a good time.

The second was 180 degress out of the first. The room was a hole in the wall, and we had reserved a larger one, but did not get it. It also appears that the hotel has gone all-inclusive for the families with kids. Please don’t get us wrong, we like kids, but when they use the hallways as a playground, and parents fail to control or discipline, and the staff does not help the situation all in all….We are not going back, and that’s a shame, for Scuol is a nice town, and a good place to ski.

When the Vereina train tunnel was opened 1999, Scuol became a new favourite in the Engadin - and the Belevedere was the place to be. Its owner was there in the right moment and he did the right things. The Belvedere Hotel enjoyed a great time for some years, its was popular with different kind of travellers. It seems to have become a victim of its success. Soon you could not get any rooms anymore last minute, then a new building was added (modern, but not suiting the old time charme of its main building). Suddenly there were too many guests to handle and the hotel lost the personal touch. This is mostly visible during dinner time. Several times it has been severely chaotic. You have to wait to long for the five courses, sometimes you will not get what you have chosen etc etc. And service personnel is just running around the place rather headlessly. A pity. And rather dangerous. If the y continue like that, they will lose their loyal guests. But, there is hope, try the Guarda Val, that belongs also to the Belvedere group of hotels. Go there, eat there, stay there, and forget (at least at the moment) the Belvedere.

We enjoy skiing in the Lower Engadine region of Switzerland due to the prevailing sunny days.

Scuol does not have a large ski area, however the slopes are well suited for intermediary skiers with kids. The town has an indoor swimming/sauna/spa (Bad) center that is perfect to relax after the skiing.

This is the big advantage of the Hotel Belvedere. It is connected to the Bad so after returning from the slopes, you just put on your swim wear, robe and 300m later you reach the pools and saunas. Jacuzzis, hydro massage, manual massage...

We were on half-board for the week, and we enjoyed the quality of the meals in all dinners. Realizing that we did not understand German, the hotel staff prepared an English version of the menu for us everynight. The wine cart had many versions of regional and foreign wines.

We actually stayed in an apartment that the hotel owns on the other side of the street. We were just four, but the two-floor apartment can fit confortably 6 people. The only inconvenience is the access to the Bad.

For the skiing, the hotel has a van that takes you to the ski resort in pre-determined times. Unfortunately it does not bring the skiers back, so we had to take the free sport bus back to the hotel, a 20 minute trip.

In some nights the Hotel sponsored live music in the bar, which was a plus.

I booked three months before our arrival and was promised a large room. We got a miserable little room facing the main road with a huge balcony that was shared with about 10 other rooms. Reception and their handling of the complaint was marginal. They abviously allocated our confirmed room to someone who stayed more than 2 nights. Meals were ok but the decoration and lay-out of the Hotel is marginal, more like a middle class business hotel in a city. The food was good. If you book there make sure that you get a good room, I saw one corner junior suite that was fine but not available.

This hotel combines super Swiss efficiency with friendliness, excellent cooking (the breakfast buffets are memorable) and panoramic views. It retains the atmosphere and charm of a family-run hotel yet provides the facilities of a much larger hotel. It is encouraging that the hotel retains the same staff for many years.There is a direct covered access to the thermal baths. Located in the town of Scuol it is so easy to reach the stunning mountains, by cable car or directly by foot or by taking the post buses, and shops are just outside - yet is wonderfully quiet in the south-facing rooms. The rooms in the new wing are modern and beautifully designed using wood and granite. The reception (and most of the restaurant) staff speak excellent English and some French - the hotel can provide an English translation of the dinner menu. I have been coming to Scuol every year in the summer since 1992 and have stayed at the Belvedere for the last 3 years - which has been an excellent decision! The family who own the Belvedere also own the Belvair next to the thermal baths and there is an arrangement for taking dinner between the two. And overall the hotel provides excellent value for money!
