It is a modern hotel with nice restaurant and very nice buffet. There is no lobby so if you want some place to sit you must go to the restaurant. It is in the center of town. Five minute drive to Gstaad . Ski bus runs from train station ,one block away. Five minute drive to ski lift or gondola.

We came for a night in the very off season. Most hotels in Gstaad were closed for the off season. Alphorn was reasonably overpriced and about 15 minutes walk from the Gstaad train station. The whole city of Gstaad was really beautiful but closed by 7 in the off season.
Had dinner at the hotel restaurant which had a good menu selection and good service. The food was good and as is the norm in Switzerland, overpriced for what it is.
The room is a bit dated but clean and comfortable. 2 sinks in the bathroom. Slightly hard beds according to American standards.
Main complaint. My room was on the 2nd floor. Starting around 9 pm there was loud music, shouting and partying going on until some time around midnight. I checked and it was from the bar downstairs. I eventually put in ear plugs and did my best to sleep.
Breakfast was what I would call continental European. Good cheese and bread choices. Salami, cook your own boiled egg, juices and jams, cereals and Nutella. Included in the price was nice and adequate.
Overall a small town, clean hotel that worked well for an overnight stay in the off season.

"Absolute Perfection in a Stunning Alpine Setting"
This hotel is everything you'd expect in a fantastic, world-class hotel: the setting is stunning, set on a mountain overlooking the charming, pristine village of Gstaad; the staff bend over backward to be helpful and yet it's not fussy or overplayed service; the rooms are incredibly plush with small touches that impress, like Laderach chocolates.
Then there's the outdoor pool, with the views to the Alps, and the spa, which is managed by Six Senses and is sublime.
Downsides? You're a car-ride away from town but don't worry--they offer chauffeured Land Rovers to get you there on demand...free.

It's not cheap, but you don't really expect it to be. Having said that, I've stayed in plenty of 5 star luxury hotels , and I have to say that in terms of friendliness of staff, cleanliness of everything, helpfulness all round the hotel could not be faulted at all.
Gstaad is known for its luxury hotels and shopping, high-society nightlife, fine dining, and international stars. It is also one of the largest ski areas in the Swiss Alps. Saanen is home to the John F. Kennedy International School, which is a private boarding school offering instruction in English, as well as ski instruction in the Swiss Alps.
