I stayed in Chesa Salis during a warm week-end of October. Nevertheless the room, n 41 under the roof, was extremely cold. After the first icy night, I asked to warm it better but, after the dinner, noyhing was changed.(16 ° celsius). Mr Degiacomi then arrived with 2 tiny heaters that changed the temperatur of few degrees.
Adding that in the room there were not beds but 2 camp beds in the centre of the room, we had the clear impression to be in an extremely expensive camping! (Of course the bathroom remained frozen..)
I wander how you can feel in the cold nights of engadine winter!
On the other side the restaurant was flawless; the staff was very very kind and collaborative, but we can not say the same for the owner.
Maybe Chesa Salis was better than in my experience, but I surely will not come again: there are plenty of splendid and charming hotels in Engadine!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Let`s dip into the past! We are located in Bever, a village where time seems to have stopped a hundred years ago. The Chesa Salis is an insider tip. It is part of a row of historic houses in the quiet eastern part of Bever, away from the bypass, almost invisible and that is how it should remain. Dating back to 1590, this intimate hotel harmonises character and style with modern comfort, winning “Historic Hotel of the Year” in 2015. The restaurant offers dishes that pay particular attention to creative delicacies and regional specialities. The carved front door remains, matched by an elaborate wrought-iron gate. The noble heritage of the building is witnessed today by its meter-thick walls, handsome craftsmanship, beautiful wood panelling, handsome beamed ceilings, frescoed ceilings, and colourful ceramic fireplaces. When you enter the reception area, there is an eclectic mix of old and new. All of the guestrooms are lovely. So let`s dip into the past! ... more less
