Historical Traveler Reviews Kempinski Grand Hotel des Bains St. Moritz St. Moritz
With 185 rooms, this is one of the largest hotels in St Moritz. It was acquired by Kempinski a few years ago and appears to have been completely refurbished. The hotel is located at St Moritz Bad, a little outside the town centre, but this is not a problem. Car parking in the town centre is both easy and cheap, and the hotel offers a free limousine service into town, though we did not use this.
Excellent five stars hotel
How can you criticize if you get a free BMW series 7 pick up service from the St. Moritz station! Also we have a free room upgrade because My wife and I stay there for honeymoon. The service is excellent with welcoming drink and fruits. the indoor pool, gym, spa and all facilities are good! It is the best Hotel in St.Moritz! Highly recommended!
For the second time around, I stayed at the best hotel in St. Moritz, this time with my fiancé. We got an exceptional deal for 7 nights with half-board at the Kempinski Grand Hotel des Bains right after the New Year in January. We are XC skiers, so we asked for two massages each instead of the ski lift pass. No problem. They gave us a standard room, but standard at the K is like twice the upgrade at the other luxury hotels in St Moritz - and I have been in standard rooms at the Kulm, Suvretta House (even since the renovation)and at Badrutt's Palace, and none compare to the spacious and well-planned rooms at the K. By the way, the decor in most of these hotels is, well, Swiss/German. You can't expect French Regency antiques or Italian Armani Casa. What you'll get at the K is at least an absence of kitschy 'alpenpaintings' (Suvretta House scary standard), Laura Ashley drapes (Badrutt's, no thank you) or cheesy modern (Carlton.) There are plenty of framed mirrors in the room and there's a black and gold table identical to the one available in the rooms at the Kempinski Adlon in Berlin. There is plenty of closet space and the WC is totally separate from the marble bathroom. Rest assured, it's much better than at the rest of the luxury hotels in St Moritz. No cuckoo clock alpenfantasy, thank God! You're there to ski, not to play house anyway, no?
Had a wonderfully romantic stay at the Grand for our wedding anniversary.
We had a fantastic deluxe room and the hotel facilities (wellness, restaurants, bar and casino) are top notch, in fact we didn't leave the hotel much during the entire weekend - bliss.
Received particularly good service from the reception staff, thanks guys for making my anniversary plans go off without a hitch.
We visited during off season and I was very happy with the special rate I got from the Kempinski website, unfortunately this rate is doubled during ski season but if you can afford it you wont be disappointed.
My husband and I went to Europe for two weeks and stayed in a total of five hotels, the Kempinski was by far the best! Everything was great! The staff was extremely courteous and very helpful. We were treated like royalty. The exercise area and spa are top notch. The view is unbelievable; surrounded by mountains and a lake within walking distance. The breakfast buffet was the nicest I have had in a hotel; a whole room filled with gourmet chef prepared hot food and so many varieties of fruit, pastries, and jams. The maid service was excellent; they would notice how you liked things and would customize your room to your likes and needs daily. I have nothing negative to say about this hotel. It is a great place for a romantic getaway, an activity filled vacation, or families with young children.
Never seen something better
We arrived with our old car at the entrance of the hotel and we felt we were in the wrong place. Staying here in low season and paying a very good price, we paid 150 Euro/night including breakfast, feels like being jetset. We got an upgrade, honeymooners ;-). The room was huge and magnificent. Facilities in this hotel are great, the pool, sauna and all other things are superb. Choice for breakfast was overwhelming, we didn't eat anymore till the evening. In fact we didn't see that much of St.Moritz, we just enjoyed being in the hotel. For us it was one of the best hotels ever (maybe the best). So don't doubt, book this hotel if you go to St.Moritz.
We decided to go for a luxury skiing holiday this year, neither of us having done it before. We went to the Kempinski Grand Hotel des Bains in St Moritz on the excellent value 7 day ski package which included half board for 7 nights with a ski pass for 6 days.
This is a truly fantastic hotel, which one would expect from a Kempinski, but it's service and amenities, especially when compared to other St Moritz hotels are beyond.
Truly a Grand hotel!!!
From the moment you set foot in the hotel, the Kempinski lives up to its name of a Grand Hotel. The public areas are beautifully decorated. Our room was spacious and the beds were comfortable. The bathroom had the fluffiest towels ever!! The service was impeccable and the breakfast was out of this world. From every cereal, bread, muffin, pastry, fresh fruit one could think of to made to order omelettes, there was something for everyone! Although we didn't spend time at the spa or pool, the staff was very polite, attentive and answered all of our questions when we went to check it out. We would highly recommend this hotel and will definetly stay there again.
Wonderful hotel in a beautiful town
Had a great stay at the Kempinski. The rooms and public spaces were well appointed. Service was excellent. Ski rentals and walk to gondola were quick and easy. The spa was great after a day on the slopes. Worth the money if heading to St. Moritz.
