Hotel Steffani

Hotel Steffani

Built in 1869 in the heart of St. Moritz, the Steffani offers a chance to stay in a quintessential Alpine retreat. The hotel, which has been run by the same family for four generations, features lots of pine, wooden flooring, log fires and red cushions. Out front you’ll find the Steffani rabbit statue. Originally designed to be the 1928 Winter Olympics’ mascot, the hotel adopted the rabbit as its own after the athletes stayed at the Steffani during the games.

The hotel is home to three restaurants, including Le Lapin Bleu, the oldest in town. It offers variety with Stüva Grill and a Cantonese menu at Le Mandarin, while Le Lapin Bleu serves more traditional fare.

There is a range of 60 rooms, as well as a spa, pool, three bars and a nightclub, all within the hotel walls.

Rooms

The 60 rooms and suites are all furnished with local materials for a genuine Alpine experience. The large windows let in plenty of natural light, and the pale pine furniture, wooden flooring and warm tones give the rooms an inviting feeling.

The options range from double and triple rooms to a variety of suites, including the Steffani Master Suite. The higher-end rooms have small balconies with mountain views, while the smaller rooms face the quiet garden.

Due to the historic nature of the building, air conditioning cannot be installed, however the temperatures in St. Moritz rarely make it necessary.
