It sits within walking distance of the city’s charming old town, where visitors can enjoy the many churches and museums dotted around the picturesque district.
The hotel itself almost feels like a collection of private apartments rather than a hotel, yet never forgoes the attentiveness and professionalism of five-star service.

Though the rooms are, inevitably, not as fancy or laden with extras as those you might find in 5-star resorts, they are nevertheless functional and have everything the budget traveler needs. Each room has a private bathroom, hairdryer, and TV with satellite access.
The onsite restaurant – also run by the owners – gives guests a true taste of Switzerland, with traditional Swiss cuisine prepared by local cooks and with locally sourced products. The selection of regional cheese is vast, with the restaurant’s Gruyère particularly excellent.

Another slice of luxury in the Swiss countryside, Suvretta House is found amid tranquil parkland about a mile from downtown Moritz.

Guests tired from their day on the piste will find many options in the hotel’s extensive spa and wellness facilities. There is a 25-meter swimming pool for those who want to engage in something more strenuous than a paddle.

La Réserve Eden au Lac Zürich
Sister hotel to other “La Réserve” hotels in Paris and Geneva, Eden au Lac Zürich borders the titular lake and offers easy walking access to many of Zürich’s biggest landmarks.
The hotel’s building has been reimagined from its Belle Époque roots into an ode to yachting, and a lot of the décor has been designed with this in mind. Wooden canoes hang from the ceiling in several rooms, and old watercolor paintings serve to round out the hotel’s distinctly nautical feel.
La Reserve Eden au Lac Zürich also offers two restaurants. The first one, simply named ‘The Eden Kitchen’, largely offers Italian staples with a few Asian dishes thrown into the mix.
But it is the second restaurant that offers a truly unique experience. La Muña is perhaps the only restaurant of its kind in the whole country – a Japanese-Peruvian fusion restaurant which offers such tantalizing specialties as sea bass ceviche and grilled vegan gyoza (Japanese dumplings).
The balconies and terraces of the hotel look out over Lake Zürich, offering wonderful views (particularly in the summer) and cementing La Réserve Eden au Lac Zürich’s place as one of the best hotels with a view in Switzerland.

The resort is great for hiking in summer and skiing in winter, and the Schanfigg valley and nearby viaduct offer majestic views no matter the time of year.
No matter where you go nearby, the mountains are never far away, whether snuggled up in your room or enjoying a drink in the bar. In summer or winter, there’s nothing quite like watching the sun disappear behind the imposing mountain ranges with a drink in hand.

Overlooking the Rhone Valley high in the Alps, Chetzeron is reachable only by snow-mobile or cable car. The hotel compensates for its inaccessibility with stunning views and excellent skiing opportunities, and on clear days you can see Mont Blanc and the Matterhorn.
Though the property wasn’t designed as a hotel – it’s actually a converted gondola station – it has been renovated with the surrounding ski slopes in mind, and affords its guests one of the most interesting and unique stays in Switzerland.
The hotel’s restaurant puts a unique Argentine twist on their many grilled meat dishes, with every steak and filet seared to perfection on their Argentinian parrilla. All ingredients are fresh and locally sourced too, meaning you’re in for the finest meals to be found at those kinds of altitudes.
The heated outdoor pool offers some of the best Alpine views in Switzerland, and if you’re still cold after going back inside, you can warm yourself up in the sauna.

Switzerland’s Jungfrau region is rightly regarded as one of its most beautiful, and the Salzano Hotel is uniquely positioned (quite literally) to take advantage of that majestic natural beauty.
The tranquil rustic location is nicely juxtaposed by the awe-inspiring views it offers of Mounts Niesen, the Eiger, and others.
When thinking of the best hotels in Switzerland with a view, it’s hard to imagine many places that could beat Salzano. Europe’s highest train station, Jungfraujoch, is easily reachable from here, and in the nearby Lauterbrunnen Valley you can marvel at the sight of 72 waterfalls bouncing down the sheer rock faces of the valley.
If boating is more your thing, you can descend to where the previously mentioned Victoria-Jungfrau Spa sits between the two great lakes, and take yourself out to enjoy the pristine tranquillity of the still waters.
