Built in 1875, the Steigenberger Grandhotel Belvédère Davos is an elegant five-star retreat with stunning views of the Swiss Alps. Located in Davos Platz, the hotel combines Old World charm and luxe perks, and provides a handy base for mountain pursuits year-round. The spacious rooms start at 240 square feet, and most come with a balcony with alpine views. The bathrooms feature bathrobes and sleek black countertops. Wining and dining options include Restaurant Belvédère for fancy French fare and specialties from the surrounding Graubünden region, Romeo & Julia (closed in the summer months) for classic Swiss dishes in a rustic setting, Bistro Voilà for light bites on the sun terrace, and the Carigiet bar, an intimate drinking den with live piano music. After a day of navigating the slopes, hiking the summer trails or sealing a business deal (Davos plays host to the World Economic Forum every January), head to the wellness center to kick back in the Finnish sauna or take a dip in the heated pool, which has panoramic views of the Alps.
In the Area
At 5,120 feet Davos is Europe’s highest city and is a popular year-round escape for its vast array of alpine pursuits. In winter 54 ski lifts connect a huge network of slopes and cross-country trails, and in summer cable cars provide access to four hiking areas. Davos Lake has a swimming area and a sailing and surfing center. The Alpinum Schatzalp is a five-acre botanical garden that is home to high-altitude flowers from the Pyrenees, New Zealand, China, Nepal and Tibet. For an art fix head to the Kirchner Museum to see works by the German impressionist Ernst Ludwig Kirchner. Refresh with a brew at the Bier Vision Monstein, Europe’s highest brewery. Davos is a two-hour drive from Zurich and is the starting point of the Glacier Express, a scenic railway route that cuts through the Swiss Alps.

The Steigenberger in Davos is one of the great hotels in the world with a great history. We visited in 2017 and then returned last week for a late season ski trip. Whilst this is still a great hotel, it's sad to see standards have fallen. There seems to be noticable cost cutting going on, with reduced facilities in rooms and the spa. Breakfast is still very good with lovely ingredients and the hotel retains it's beautiful classy decor and feel. The main issue for us is the staff are less friendly (with the exception of the lovely Judith at breakfast) and seemed a little unhappy generally. One example, was an unfortunate incident at the al la carte restaurant one evening when we asked for a table for dinner. The staff member who manages the dinner service was quite unprofessional. He made us go to reception to book a table when the restaurant was clearly empty. Reception then told us to walk back to restaurant as quite correctly, guests shouldn't have to book a table in an empty restaurant! he apologised for the misunderstanding but seemed arrogant and unfriendly. Overall it's a sad reflection on how this great hotel seems to be being managed. I realise that costs have to managed sometimes but hope they can go back to the great hospitality of the past again.
Nice hotel in the centre of Davos.
Service was far away what I expected, even though there were some personnel that was great.
Asked for a late check-out, until 13:00 ok, after that you had to pay (30CHF/hour). Dinner first night, that was included in our room rate, was some green sallad and a rösti, no choices available. Dinner on saturday, ordered a ceasar sallad, some ingredients was missing in the sallad. Asked about this and waiter come rudly with a plate. We had to ask/remind about the water few times, same thing to refill our wines glases.
You could/should expect more from a 5-star hotel.
Breakfast was great!
My family and I came back to Davos for a few days and we enjoyed staying at the beautiful Steigenberger Grandhotel Belvedere for the second time this year.
The staff at the front desk made is feel welcomed back and check in was quick and efficient. Our room was ready early and we were able to relax from the only 2 hour, but snowy drive and watched the continued snowfall that started to cover all of Davos in a beautiful white blanket - sunshine was on the menu for the next day :)
We went for an early dinner at the main restaurant which my family and I enjoyed tremendously. You can read a more detailed review of the Belvedere Restaurant, a very beautiful place with an amazing chef, the food he prepares is simply fantastic! Breakfast is superb, there is something delicious for everybody to get the day started right.
Since the spa was under construction the hotel gave us tickets to go to Eau-la-la across the street which has a huge sauna area, heated outdoor and indoor pools with a beautiful view of the mountains.
Thank you to the GM Tina Heide for making our stay at the Belvedere an unforgettable experience of relaxation and great dining, we look forward to coming back again very soon!
