I am having some difficulty in deciding where to stay in St Moritz. We are a family of 2 adults and 1 Child (4 years old). Planning to visit St Moritz and stay for about 5 to 6 nights, arriving on 19 Jan 2020. Looking at a Budget of CHF 100 per night but seems impossible. Because we will be in Switzerland for approximately 3 weeks, therefore trying to find cheap and good accommodation. I have not started looking at accommodation for the remaining of my trip yet. Trying to settle the accommodation for St Moritz portion before I start looking for accommodation for the 2nd part of my trip (Zermatt). I have checked the prices of hotel and holiday homes/apartments on Agoda, e-domizil etc and they are quite costly.
Activities/places I’m considering are
1. Walk around Lake St Moritz, Ice skate and sledging near some hill
3. Val Roseg - Feed birds
4. Watch Snow Polo World Cup
5. Morteratsch Glacier
Villages I am considering as my base are Sils-Maria, Saas-fe, La Punt-Chamues, Zuoz, Pontresina, Samedan, Celerina.
Based on the places to visit, which village should I base myself? Or is there a better option which I have not listed? Consideration : ease of going from place to place, child friendly and cheap accommodation. Would you be able to share which of these village has a similar vibe as Grindelwald (relaxing and we can spend the whole day just walking around the little village and pulling our kid on sledge)?
