All About the Kronenhof- A Swiss Luxury Hotel

July 29, 2015

As promised on Monday I would tell you all about the luxurious gem of the Kronenhof Grand Hotel in Pontresina, Switzerland.

I think you can be easily underwhelmed when it comes to a “Grand Hotel”. There comes that moment when it is not so grand… more like over priced and overrated. There are so many places that continue to be boasted by their reputation with out much merit.

I will tell you I had only the best of experiences at the Kronenhof. I know I have talked about race and classism a few times on the blog but one reason I want to share these experiences is because it is a rare fate that when I dine or attend a luxury hotel or restaurant I do not receive odd looks. The patrons and employees wonder how Bennie and I can afford to dine or stay at these establishments.

We have embraced this as expected curiosity, can’t let anyone dampen your good time.

People stare in curiosity contemplating if they have seen us on TV or a rap video at one time or another. At the Kronenhof we were treated beyond our expectations with no issues. The staff are smart, experienced and polite and the patrons are classy and kind.

No snooty remarks or rude looks. Thank God!

Everyone was down to earth and the child friendly atmosphere was nice because it was down-to-earth.

We did not see any other Black people during our holiday stay but it was not made a point or highlighted to us as it had been during other holidays or in other establishments where they assume you do not know what truffles are or automatically suggest Moscato as your wine for the evening.


The Kronenhof is refined luxury, not too young, not too old and a lot of fun. The mix of young families, and couples, a few group of friends and everyone is active and ready to have a great retreat to be spoiled by the amazing staff.

There was not one request that was not taken care of right away by the dedicated staff at the Kronenhof.

The five course meal does not disappoint. Every plate more delectable than the last.

Kronenhof_grand+hotel_bite+my+fashion_luxury_switzerland_date+night The Konenhof does luxury right, as I have said many times before how much I love AirBnB but this type of experience is why you must say in a hotel.

Every detail from the decor to hand written notes. I am astonished by their excellence. I will be comparing everywhere to their gold standard.

We even found a bowling alley at the end of the night, I can imagine the stories that have been lived here in the 150 years of grandness. Kronenhof_pontresina_hotel_bowling_alley

    Thank you for sharing these wonderful places. I love hotels, so much that my expectations are high and I’m often dissapointed, I don’t think this could dissapoint me though. I really appreciate what you say about people being educated there, it enfuriates me when people talk to me like I’m uneducated because I’m not European. Have a lovely weekend!

    OMG this place is beautiful!!! Love the pool and lawns, so beautiful and serene.

    I know what you mean about the rude looks and comments. I get those a lot too when in Europe. One just has to shrug it off, like you said, and not let it dampen your spirit.

    Looks like an amazing time had at this hotel. I’m so excited for you, just looking at the photos, haha. Beautiful shoes as well! When in Switzerland, definitely a must visit!

    First of all, you both look divine. I would not question it either, but I know EXACTLY what you mean, & as horrible as it is, it was a relief to read of someone that deals with the same issue. It’s such a pain when you realize people are over-compensating your presence in one way or another. Most days I just want to blend in & enjoy life, temporarily not being bothered with social injustices. Glad to hear of these experiences. It’s a lovely setting. (:
