Kitty corner from the Klarer is another typical Engadine building housing the Crusch Alva. Its interior is all stone arches, bleached wood ceilings with big beams and paneled walls. Young Silvia and Peter Jörimann are especially proud of the hotel's restaurant which has been recognized by Gault Millau. The couple offer "refined" regional cuisine in their 300 year-old, paneled dining room.

Though we missed the formal restaurant, a light lunch of risotto in the stuva was excellent. Number 18 is typical of the dozen or so guestrooms. On a corner, it has a carved wood bed and a large bathroom with its own window. The hotel has no elevator but is the best value in town.
