We stayed at this hotel for a week during our christmas vacation in Davos. The staff and dining are very good, considering that you're staying in an alp village. We also found that the breakfast had a lot to offer and certainly had a better selection than normally on our skiing vacations.
The location is not ideal, since the closest lift (Jacobshorn) is about 600m away from the hotel. Bus stop is about 200m away but the hotel is uphill from these two mentioned locations. Another thing that you should consider is the church (Marienkirche) right next to the hotel, so make sure you get a room facing south. Otherwise you will need earplugs to get away from the bells.
The rooms we stayed in were a bit worn, especially the bathroom color was quite hideous (not from the last two-three centuries). It might be that we did not have the refurbished rooms and during the week we thought that we should have asked for an upgrade in the first place. The room was also very warm and it was impossible to get the heat down from the radiators. Only way to cool down was to keep the window open for quite some time.
The service and dining in the evening were very nice. They also had quite good selection of wines to choose from. We were served four course dinners every evening. One thing that we found a little odd was that there was nothing special for the Christmas. In some of the other places we've stayed in they've always had a special christmas dinner, but here they served the normal course. For New Year's eve they will have a special serving. There is a nice little fondue restaurant just down the main street (Gentiana) where we had our christmas dinner.
All-in-all a good stay, but I would propably not give the hotel four stars. Maybe ***+ would be in place!
