Gstaad is filled with top-quality hotels and a cluster of well-preserved wooden buildings in the traffic-free village centre. The best-known hotel is the Palace, which has received criticism for being over-priced. Recommended restaurants include the Sonnenhof, La Cave in the Hotel Olden and the 16th-century Chlösterli. The Bären at Gsteig offers traditional Swiss fare. The Café du Cerf in Rougemont is a typical Swiss restaurant with live music at weekends. The Palace's Greengo night-club is the main late-night venue. The locals meet at Richi's. Other haunts include Pubbles in the Hotel Boo in Saanen, Club 95 at the Sporthotel Victoria and the Grotte in the Hotel Alpin Nova in Schönried. Down Town is a bar with live jazz in the Hotel Ermitage-Golf, also at Schönried.
The Grand Hotel Park in Gstaad sets the standard for accommodation in this discerning resort. Tapestry, wall-hangings and delicately-painted woodwork set the tone for a hotel that is at once up-to-date and highly traditional.
The fairytale turrets and flags of the Palace Hotel look down on the picturesque postcard chalets of Gstaad. Inside, the dream continues with open fireplaces, glittering chandeliers and five restaurants, ranging from silver-service to check-cloth informality.
Hotel Steigenberger Gstaad -Saanen is located in the homonymous Alpine town ski resort. This 4-star hotel in the holiday resort of Saanen enjoys magnificent views on the Waadtländer Alps landscape in the Bernese Oberland.
