You might expect a small on-station hotel to be a bit tired and run down. Not this place. Its lovely! I had the corner "Bernina" room overlooking the station platform. Its a large room with a superking bed, set up Swiss style with two single quilts and big fluffy pillows. Great ensuite with a powerful shower. Spotlessly clean. Tip: If you like to sleep with a window open then take a small rubber wedge in your bag - the windows have no stays on them. The RhB station wifi works in the room. Beautiful and quiet at night - there was what I think was a rubbish collection by rail at about 0530, but otherwise no trains from say 2200 until beyond 0600. I had a great night's sleep. Wonderful outside terrasse overlooking the glacier. Ideal in the summer, or in the winter sunshine! Great food too at reasonable prices. Good choice of food and drink. Arrive by 1900 if you want to eat there - one of the last trains up from Pontresina arrives at 1848 so is perfect. Lovely breakfast that even includes fresh croissants.…
What an absolutely stunning location. A restaurant/hostel above an old traditional Railway Station perched up overlooking a beautiful valley. The restaurant has fresh food & is not expensive. Plenty of excellent walks, especially the valley walk which takes you to a waterfall & a lake that was only recently discovered (30 years ago). I could easily spend a week here- bring some books though. There is a small hotel nearby too. This is also a photo stop for the Bernina Express.
Alp Gruem is a station and a hotel / restaurant at more than 2000 metres above sea level on the Bernina railway from Switzerland tot Italy. So you can only reach it on foot or by train. We stayed here during one night in May. It was foggy and rainy, so we didn't see much of the spectacular views on the Bernina mountains, but we had a great time in spite of that. When the tourists from the trains are gone, the quietness is overwhelming. No wifi, no television. Fantastic. We had a spacy and lovely room. The only drawback were the separate beds. Staff was super friendly and in the evening we enjoyed a nice swiss fondue. If the wetter is good it should be a great starting point for several hikes in the region.
On rail trip we stayed on top of the restaurant/station. Spacious room; fortunately the manager could provide us with adapter to use Euro/Schuko plug to charge mobiles/laptop. Top notch bathroom with very large shower! A great place to walk and unwind (especially in nice weather which we had). A beautiful stop in the equally beautiful Bernina route. Dinner at the restaurant is not cheap, but really delicious. Breakfast is a bit sober, but adequate. Staff is excellent - helpful, friendly and very professional.
The hotel is situated at the railway station of Alp Grüm. It has decent rooms with picturesque views. The dinner is good, breakfast basic. Price level is reasonable for Swiss standards. We enjoyed our short break here.
