The hotel comes with an old and long history dating back to 1848. In fact, it is the oldest hotel in Pontresina which was bought and re-laid from the Gredig family as Gasthaus zur Post. Within the time the Engadin area became a famous tourist destination and was renamed as Grand Hotel Kronenhof. After around 140 years in the ownership of the Gredig family it was sold and finally bought from the Grand-Hotels Engadinerkulm AG in 2004.
Kulm Hotel DAS RESTAURANT
The Kronenhof has 66 rooms and 46 suites. The luxury hotel is built into the slope. Therefore the ground floor starts at the 3rd floor which is quite confusing at first. The rooms are decorated in a Belle Epoque design with light materials and golden elements. I fell madly in love with the chandeliers in the whole hotel. The rooms are fully equipped with everything you’ll need – minibar, safe, TV and free WIFI for all guests (I hate the fact that more luxurious hotels always charge extra fees for the internet).
