Hotel Grischuna
Ranked #1 of 2 Hotels in Filisur
Reviewed 17 July 2014

First night we had a suite which had plenty of room and good views of the trains. Subsequent nights we had a room with a balcony, less spacious but with the balcony was great. Staff were very happy and very friendly and obviously enjoyed their work. Evening meals were very good.
Extremely convenient location.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with balcony

We stumbled onto this gem, and stayed a week, moving a few times only because the hotel had many guests with reservations, and all the rooms were very good. The quality of the evening meal was just superb and by far the best we had during a 3 month European Tour...a salad bar to die for and truly 5 star restaurant quality with authentic Swiss accent...and aged wines at very fair prices. All the guest here were happy and smiling and the owners who have been here for many many years are at the top of their game ...Anna gave us such good advice for different hikes combining trains, and trails...and you simply must enjoy the heated pool/spa with massage jets down in the village. Excellent location, right at the station, avoiding step hikes after a long day...a real gem

My wife and I stayed during early March 2014. Anna and her team made us very welcome indeed, so much so that we asked to extend our stay.

Room 1 has a large fully-opening window looking right out over the village below and the valley above and beyond. There is also a balcony directly outside the room door for watching the trains roll by.

We look forward to visiting again.

We stayed overnight at Filisur to catch the Glacier Express, and concur with other comments made about the hotel's location, cleanliness and spacious rooms. If you ever drop by Filisur, it is worthwhile to note that the train station is located at the top of the village. The village itself is a major and steep hike down (approx. 6-7 floor levels) on a compacted dirt path. If arriving by train, getting to the other hotels in the village may be doable with luggage (but not easy) on the way down in non-winter months, and impossible (again with luggage) on the return.

Unless you are able to secure a shuttle service for the other hotels from the train station, I would recommend without hesitation the Grischuna hotel for being able to quickly offload luggage outside the train station and being free to explore Filisur's other attractions, such as the village and the Landwasser viaduct.

Had planned to stay in this hotel 2 nights but because it was so great we stayed an extra night which was no trouble .

Lovely welcome by the owner Anna when we arrived .

We was in room 10 and had stunning views over Filisur

Room was spotlessly clean with a nice comfy bed and bathroom

Wifi worked well and was very quick

Breakfast was also very good . Sit having your breakfast over looking Filisur and watching the passing trains . What could be better?

Had a meal in the in the hotel the first night and a few beers. Lovely food and good Erdinger Weiß beer. Highly recommended .

All staff extremely friendly and helpful. Including the evening waitress and the lady looking after us for breakfast.

The hotel is next to the railway line but the trains silently pass and the trains only run between 7am - 10pm.

The hotel has a lovely collection of photos and paintings around the hotel of the superb RHB railway.

No faults what so ever and cannot wait to visit again soon ! :-)

My wife and I stayed for 1 night in this hotel prior to catching the Glacier Express. It was so lovely we wished we were able to stay longer.

Our room was quite large and beautifully appointed. It was spotlessly clean and had a large balcony overlooking the village of Filisur down below. The whole area was covered in snow and the view from our balcony, particularly in the early evening, was just like fairyland.

The hotel is ideally located, being at the end of the platform at Filisur train station. Altough we were so close to the station, we did not hear any noise from the trains.

I only chose this hotel as a convenient location for catching the Glacier Express, but having stayed there I would love to go back and stay there for a few days. I highly recommend the Hotel Grischuna.

Room Tip: Try to get a room overlooking Filisur village.

There are only a few hotels in Filisur and Hotel Grischuna probably has the best location. It's located next to the train station as opposed to down the mountain, so by staying here you can avoid dragging your suitcases up and down the hill from the train station. The trains do run directly next do the hotel but they don't run throughout the night so this was not a disturbance.

Rooms are decent sized for Switzerland. Wifi was included and reliable. Breakfast was good. The people who work in the hotel were extremely nice.
