About Klosters

The secret of Klosters' popularity is that it remains firmly a delightful and unspoilt Swiss mountain village. Set in the Walliser Alps in the Graubünden region, Klosters has for years attracted royalty and wealthy Europeans. However, the best places to stay in Kloster’s are not necessarily very expensive. There are, of course, some very luxurious hotels but our hotel gurus have also picked out some charming properties ideal for families or those travelling on a tighter budget.

The train snakes its way through the village from Zurich to St Moritz with skiers clambering on and off in boots covered in fresh snow. The scenery is impressive with steep wooded mountainsides and high craggy mountains. Although the village is low at 1100m there is usually plenty of snow to be found, a terrific variety of pistes and some sensational backcountry to be explored. Charmingly, a third of the ski instructors are also farmers producing cheese and milk from Jersey cows amongst other more typical local breeds.

Some of the town's earliest hotels date back 145 years, there’s a good variety amongst the best places to stay in Klosters from the grand dames such as the Chesa Grishuna to the more affordable Hotel Rustico and unpretentious Hotel Wynegg. In common they share a love of good food (Klosters offers some very fine regional cuisine).

As with all popular ski resorts, the best places to stay in Klosters are very busy during the usual peak times (Christmas, New Year, half term etc). So, unless you want to come during the quieter weeks (or the summer season) you'll have to get organised and plan early.

The best places to stay in Klosters

For great value

  • The Hotel Rustico offers the best value in Klosters we think. Here you'll find simple, comfortable rooms and great food. Rooms start from just €140 per night.
  • Hotel Wynegg is another great value choice. It has a lively apres ski scene and the fondue Chinoise is the best in town. Doubles start from around €155 per night.

For families

  • The Silvretta Parkhotel ticks all the right boxes for families: flexible accommodation, free childcare during the winter season and facilities for all.

For foodies

  • For foodies, the Walserhof is a must. The restaurant has a Michelin star, and the wine cellar is vast. Little extras include a shuttle bus to the lift and entry to thermal baths and a wellness centre.
  • Alternatively, try the Chesa Grischuna. This Kloster's legend offers alpine chic rooms and inventive cuisine in its highly regarded restaurant.

For the location

  • With arguably the best location in town, the Hotel Alpina is perfect if you like to tumble out of bed straight onto the cable car. Service is very personal and the restaurant's pretty good too.

For nearby Davos

  • Kessler's Kulm boasts an enviable location on the Wolfgang Pass. The rooms are simple but stylish, with wonderful views of the area, and there's a lovely sauna in which to relax after a long day skiing.
