Most Romantic Swiss Hotels

What do you think are the most romantic hotels in Switzerland (in any price category)?

Hi browdl,

I can think of two off the top of my head --

Hotel Victoria, in Glion above Montreux. Furnished in antiques (may be reproductions) with colors in pale blue & whites. Incredible views over Lake Geneva. I can attest to its romantic power -- not from any action in my own room, alas -- but the walls are paper thin.

Hotel Grand Chalet in Gstaad. Furnished in pine & delicate flower-print fabrics, with billowing duvets on the bed. Incredible views over Gstaad and onto the mountains.

Both hotels are not centrally located and will require some walking, taxis (Gstaad) or further train connection (Glion).

I might also recommend the Hotel Steigenberger in Saanen (it's just as cozy with perphaps better views than the Grand Chalet), but it's a larger hotel. It's also a bit removed from the village.

Let me know if you'd like more info.

There are so many ... and everyone has his/her own understanding of "romantic". For me it is either a cosy small hotel with wooden panels on the walls in the mountains, or a (smaller) Belle Epoque hotel.

In the first category I stayed in a small B&B style hotel in Guarda/Engadine, Pension Val Tuoi. Relatively cheap, cosy and familiar atmosphere.

For the second type of hotels - I once stayed in the five star hotel Waldhaus in Sils, absolutely fantastic Belle Epoque style in the mountains, a Grand Hotel at its best. It is the "Historic Hotel of the year 2005" in Switzerland. Definitely stay in one of the old style rooms/suites, original 1908 old world charm.

As others have said, "romantic" depends on your personal preferences. Mine lean toward the Park Hotel on Lake Lucerne in Vitznau. It's like a castle on the lake shore with all the amenities, wonderful rooms and baths, great food, and excellent staff. Views across the lake and mountains are worth remembering forever. For special occasions the hotel manager will hire a yacht to take guests and travel across the lake to Lucerne or other venues. Good luck.

Just the name "Switzerland" conjures up romance to me, so any hotel I've stayed there is a gem.

However, I would have to second the Park Hotel in Vitznau. Were fortunate to stay in one of their suites a couple years ago. Be prepared to be pampered. First class all the way. Just wish I could still afford it....

Happy travels!
