Name: Grand Hotel Kronenhof
A truly elegant neo-Baroque hotel, with décor and service reminiscent of a bygone age, Grand Hotel Kronenhof is the perfect base for anyone looking for luxury accommodation in Pontresina near the sought-after resort of St Moritz. Downhill and cross-country skiing are popular in the winter, while golf and the hotel’s fabulous spa are much in demand in the summer. The Kronenhof is located in the picturesque village of Pontresina, just 6 km from St Moritz. British Airways and Swiss fly from Heathrow to Zurich, and from there you can take the train to Pontresina. The train journey takes almost four hours but is a memorable experience, passing through some very beautiful scenery. You can also take Swiss flights between London City and Zurich or EasyJet flights between Luton and Zurich.
Established in 1848, baroque stuccoes, original paintings and wood panelling fill this hotel with character and a real sense of the grandeur of the past. With a long and intriguing history, Grand Hotel Kronenhof runs as beautifully as a Swiss watch, and despite its undoubted elegance, remains an unpretentious, family friendly hotel with a kids’ club, babysitting service and children’s restaurant.
From the standard single and double rooms right through to the stunning, individually designed suites, the accommodation at Grand Hotel Kronenhof meets all the standards you would expect of a luxury five star hotel. All rooms are tastefully furnished and decorated, with beautiful granite or marble bathrooms and all are spacious and bright. Families can be accommodated either with an additional bed or adjoining room. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout and some rooms boast walk-in wardrobes. Room Tip – Rooms at the back of the hotel enjoy the most spectacular mountain views.
