This historic hotel from 1840 has the best panoramic location on the Scheidegg Pass. It has been managed by the 5th generation of Andreas and Silvia von Almen's family since 1988, and has 100 beds. The building, its interior and its guest list are steeped in history, while the hotel is also famous for being the location where "The Eiger Sanction" starring Clint Eastwood and "North Face" with Benno Furmann were filmed.
This nostalgic Art Nouveau style building with its Belle Époque atmosphere, already described in Thomas Mann's book "Zauberberg" [Magic Mountain], opened its doors in 1900 as a luxury sanatorium and was later converted to a mountain hotel. The soul of the house, its architecture, has been preserved in its original form until today. The Villa Guarda - formerly the former doctor's residence - and the Chalet exude new splendour with their luxurious suites. With the Schatzalp train, the "Magic Mountain" is just four minutes away from the centre of Davos. Free WLAN access throughout the hotel premises, even in the Schatzalp/Strela skiing area.
Guests at this top hotel with its stunning views are taken directly to the Arosa skiing and hiking area aboard the hotel's own Tschuggen-Express (ski-in & ski-out). The 130 rooms and suites were designed by Carlo Rampazzi, while star architect Mario Botta created the hotel's 5,000m2 wellness complex. The hotel also includes a kindergarten, 5 restaurants and a sports shop. Member of The Leading Hotels in the World amongst others.
Newly constructed in 1999, the hotel is ideally situated on a plateau at 1860 metres a.s.l. amidst a pristine landscape. The generously-sized twin rooms have been lovingly furnished with stone pine furniture and have a terrace that offers up spectacular views. Predominantly Graubünden specialities prepared using regional products are served in the restaurant and the 'Arven lounge'. The hotel is readily accessible by private car, post bus and – especially romantically – by horse-drawn carriage.
