I suggest you disregard earlier reviews. My Inghams rep tells me that this hotel has recently changed management and has had a major refurb.
Certainly, the National Hotel I stayed at bore little resemblance to the one I was expecting based on the reviews I read here. I found an excellent hotel. Recent refurbishment was obvious, but was pleasingly sympathetic to the hotel's original styling; nothing looked "tired" to me.
My single room was smallish, but well equipped with wardrobe and drawers, so I had no problem with clutter. Everything worked, and everything was clean. Doors connecting adjoining rooms created a bit of a noise transmission problem though.
Great staff, attentive, smiling, and all of whom spoke excellent English. Free wifi Internet access on ground and first floor. Location as good as any in Davos (I'm not sure Davos has an "ideal" hotel location - it's that kind of place).
Ski equipment room arrangements are unusual. There's a room for your skis, but you're allowed to put your ski boots on in your room and walk through the hotel wearing them. Unique in my experience: all other hotels I know of forbid that.
The food was a highlight - really good, perhaps the best food I've ever had in any hotel. I recommend you stay here half-board. Multi-course meals, served with a pleasing flourish (I won't spoil the surprise by telling you what I mean by that). Bring some smart casual clothes though: everyone but me dressed quite well for dinner, leaving me feeling a tad embarrassed in my T-shirt, jeans, and walking shoes. Darn that 20kg luggage allowance!
