Hotel of the Month Switzerland – Hotel Piz St. Moritz
Switzerland’s St. Moritz is famous for its endless ski slopes, lavish parties and the flair of jetsetters from all over the world. We all love a bit of luxury, but Hotel Piz St. Moritz goes the extra mile and merges superb facilities with a heartfelt service that makes everyone feel at home. And the best part? It does not come with the high St. Moritz price tag.
Ski slopes as far as the eye can see. The snow glistens in the sun and the air feels crisp and fresh. That is St. Moritz during winter. Long known as one of the most popular destinations for the rich and famous, St. Moritz has so much more to offer than just lavish parties and expensive hotels.
St. Moritz has many faces indeed, which not only undergo beautiful changes from season to season but also has something for everyone. From skiing, golfing and hiking to high-end boutique fashion and a range of diverse events, St. Moritz knows how to attract guests from all over the world.
Supreme accommodation for reasonable prices
Hotel Piz is right at the heart of this wonderful village and provides a homely yet sophisticated accommodation and service. The atmosphere of this rustic hotel with a hint of urban chic exudes style and class.
Owner Patrick Schraemli gives more insight: “What makes our hotel so attractive is that we also offer accommodation for the normal wallet whilst at the same time maintaining a very high standard. Our house is decorated in the Alpine style, the rooms are modern and it is very reasonably priced.”
The youthful and professional hotel team puts all their passion into their work and this enthusiastic spirit is contagious. Guests are not just guests, but are treated as old friends who need to be pampered. “We don’t have a specific group of guests. Everyone is welcome here. Aside from our hotel guests we often become hosts for guests who are staying in the surrounding five-star hotels. They like our pleasant informality, the easy atmosphere and the cosy interiors. The same goes for locals.They feel at home here. Our guests can sense that we welcome everyone,” Schraemli adds.
Relaxation starts right here
The Alpine chic is also reflected in the wooden interior, which supports the warm, cosy atmosphere. The 25 generously sized rooms are equipped with all the modern amenities and are wonderfully bright.
Aside from the various spa facilities in St. Moritz, Hotel Piz has its own sauna and vapour bath where guests can unwind after their adventures in the snow. The relaxation room invites guests to deeply relax whilst enjoying the mountain-top views. With its elegantly designed interiors, the warm atmosphere continues throughout the hotel and there are many spots to stop and take a little break. Staff members truly care about their guests and are also happy to help with questions regarding other spa facilities in the area.
Not only the soul needs food
Hotel Piz is not only known for its warm attitude and hospitality, but also for its legendary pizzas. “Our hotel has a very big restaurant, which is really popular for lunch and dinner. We serve Italian and the local Grison cuisine. Our pizzas enjoy a great reputation and we can be proud to be known as Engadin’s best pizzeria,” says Schraemli.
From popular local dishes such as Barley Soup Grison Style and classic venison dishes to the outstanding pizzas, every guest will find what their hearts desire. It should come as no surprise that the locals as well as the jetsetter league frequently visit this restaurant and it is advised to book in advance.The cosy interiors skilfully implement wood in various ways and the main room is organically sectioned into different parts. This gives an inviting flair, yet remains elegant. Its simplicity in combination with architectonic creativity is striking. If you fancy a delicious meal in a truly Alpine surrounding, look no further.
