The service was perfect, a sweet and most friendly place. How nice to be welcomed with a great smile from the owner. The food was soooooo good, thanks for the cardamom. We for sure will be back next season.

We enjoyed our stay at Hotel Christiania for a number of reasons: spotless, spacious room with balcony and nice, large bathroom; excellent breakfast; accommodating and friendly owners who take a personal interest in their guests; convenient parking next to hotel and location at one end of the pedestrian promenade in Gstaad.

Went to the Restaurant for a late lunch. The Menu was disappointing, we were hoping for some genuine Swiss dishes, only after the Menu was brought to the table, did we realise that this was really a Mediterranean Restaurant, with mainly middle eastern dishes on the Menu. So I settled for the Burger only, which turned out to be reasonably... More

Hotel Christiania is incredibly charming and a superb location. The rooms feel very "Swiss". The family that runs the hotel provide the highest level of service possible for a small hotel. The Breakfasts are excellent. It is a memorable stay and I will stay at Hotel Christiania the next time I am in Gstaad.

Cosy, small family run hotel in a good location. Rooms are cosy and comfortable rather than luxurious but includes everything you need. Including a kettle with teas and coffee. Breakfast and food were superb and homemade with fresh, local ingredients. Staff and Proprietor were very helpful and friendly. They could not do more to make people relaxed.

Despite no reservation in off-season, I was warmly welcomed to this lovely traditional property. Asked for room facing away from train station, and was given upgraded double. Lovely furnishings and amenities. Amazing breakfast to order of many items, wonderfully prepared. Interesting menu for other meals, with Lebanese specialties if you are schnitzeled- or wursted-out. Easy walking around town, with excellent... More

I was asked about the Christiania by my sister who is going to visit Gstaad. I prefaced my remarks by saying that I had not been there in many years. I have stayed with the Geddah-Nopper family Hotel Christiania at least 5 times and always found the service impeccable, the cuisine worthy of Michelin stars, the rooms quite adequate, the... More
