Review - Hotel Belvedere (Davos, Switzerland)

On my recent visit to Davos, I got to stay at Steigenberger Belvedere at Davos in Switzerland.

Time of staying - December 2010

One line summary of review - "The best possible hotel to stay in Davos, which will give you an experience of a lifetime"

Now to further expand the one line summary further, I would like to mention of 5 following things which are important for me to stay at any place - 

1. Location of the hotel - Belvedere is quiet centrally located in Davos. Most of the places, including market, stadium, shopping places, restaurants, skiing areas are walk away. 

2. Service - Very nice and courteous  people are there to help you anytime for whatever possible. shuttle service to any location with Davos (pick up and drop) is available anytime at no cost! I particularly liked their reservation table staff. All of them were smiling, cheerily natured and ready to serve you immediately!

3. Facilities / Amenities - Gym, Spa, Swimming pool (beautiful one) are all available with the hotel and can be used at will. Gym is not that great and had basic equipments though.

4. Food - I am strict vegetarian and still managed to eat quite tasty food including vegetable filled risotto. Breakfast for me was usually toast, cashew nuts, almonds, tea, corn flakes, cheese, etc

5. Pricing - Rates are from 300 CHF and above but thanks to my MNC company, I got it a much discounted rate.

Overall, I would definitely recommend to anyone to stay here, provided it suits your wallet.

Top 5 things that make World Economic Forum work

World Economic Forum, Davos 2011.  5 days from 26 - 30 January 2011.  2500 delegates. 26000 people.  In 1 village called Davos whose population for the rest of the 51 weeks is only 13000.
Questions on its efficacy and impact are bound to happen. Especially when world's top leaders spend millions of dollars. Not counting their opportunity cost of millions of dollars which they could have used for their work.
I attempted my own rationale on 5 reasons which make World Economic Forum work.

How Branding can help your startup

I can bucket a startup entrepreneur into either of 2 buckets – one – Branding-is-for-Biggies! and second  who believe -Branding-is-important-after-Series-A-funding”. And first bucket is full till the brim. Let me start with a simple question with a possibly simple answer -

Remembering Tej...

You don't normally think of writing this for a friend who was just 31 years old.
Friend who you have just met.
I dont want any of you, reading this, to experience this ever again.

Tejendra Gwala, or Tej, as we lovingly called him, a 6ft 2 inches man was still a boy at heart. Full of dreams, full of youth and full of  dare to be different from everyone out there.

Few things -

1. He knew how to make you comfortable - I spent innumerable evenings with him - where he would just go and start speaking with strangers - whether t was a gym, dhaba or a 5 star restaurant

2. He knew his values - I was just 1 year younger than I was but he respected me and Aakriti (my wife) as his real brother and Bhabhi. There were dozens of time, when he would just call and say - I want "Ghar ka khana" and lets go for a drive.

3. He was the best closer that you would want in your team - knew how to finish things. Whether it was AV shoot in Chennai, fixing dozens of cabs, writing a strategic prese…
