The Donatz is a spectacularly presented modern hotel which, for me, is a demonstration in good design. The hotel is located in Samedan, a few minutes drive from San Moritz, and as scenic and characterful a town as you could wish for. Our corner room was huge, extremely light with several windows along two sides, and with simple but flawless...

My wife and I are very experienced travellers in more or less all parts of the world and we have backpacked and stayed in five-star hotels and everything in between. Our stay at Hotel Donatz was the worst so far in our lives. The hotel is nice and tidy, but watch out for the owner! I'm polished enough not to...

A friendly hotel. A lovely clean room with a mountain view from the bed and four windows in the room. Samedan is a charming place-especailly so if you go down all the side roads and enjoy the charm. When hotels offer a spa down the road you are in for a trek. Not here. The price include the Samedan spa...

Used Samedan as a hiking base and stayed here. Good hotel at a reasonable price with a great breakfast and wi-fi access (not free, but most places in this area don't have any access). Especially liked that the Engandine Card was included in the price. Gives you free access to all transportation in the area which saves an appreciable amount...

My husband and I have just spent the weekend in Samedan at this delightful hotel. Rooms were big, clean and quiet. Breakfast was very good (buffet) and included in room price. They also provide you with a free travel card to use during your stay. This was handy to get back and forth from St Moritz, which is only 10...

This hotel is within five minutes' walk of the train station, and from here you can go to anywhere in the area. The hotel gave me a discount transport card for staying a minimum of two nights, which was great. Of course, I lost it, and my sfr 10 deposit, but they issued me another. The staff are kind and...

This hotel is a very good value. It is accessible to St. Moritz with a bus stop just down the street. The hotel provided a free public transit card. It is also close to the train station. The hotel is modern and well cared for. The tiny elevator was funny, but it did the job. Our room and bathroom were...
