I stayed at Hotel du Glacier during the Haute Route. It's ideally located when you come into the village and beautifully decorated with hanging flowers. From the moment I arrived the staff were excellent and very welcoming. The location is stunning with views of the mountains and the breakfast was one of the best of the whole trek. I would... More

This hotel has the perfect location in the center of the quiet village of Arolla, with a gorgeous view of the Alps. The rooms are quite simple, but comfortable. Everyone who works at the hotel is friendly and helpful. Our room included breakfast and dinner, which were fine, but nothing special. However, since everything is so expensive in Switzerland, I...

I stayed at Hotel du Glacier as part of a trip with Jagged Globe. Our group stayed in their annex. It was clean and comfortable and we had access to a lounge/kitchen where we could make ourselves a cup of tea, store food and drinks in the fridge and relax on the balcony after a hard day. The staff were... More

We stayed a night here whilst on a ten day walking hike of the Alps. We arrived in Arolla exhausted and with a sick wife. We expected our request for a room separate from the group to be denied but they were on to it immediately. The diner served to the group was the famous raclette and was served by... More

After crossing the last pass of the day, we descended into Arolla and began to seek a hotel for the night. There at the end of the plaza sat the Hotel De Glacier completely covered in flowers of every color. Thousands of them! Inside the staff is very courteous and took care of everything we needed. The room we took... More

Due to bad weather, we have arrived one day earlier in Arolla. By chance, we found this hotel, and it was great! Very friendly staff, good facilities, clean, and simply charming. The food was great, the view from the balcony extraordinary, towards Mont Colon and the surrounding peaks. And the price was good too. Highly recommended.

A visit in the 1970's found us staying in the hotel, which was very nice. At that time it was the Swiss National Holiday and they served a special meal which began with ginger soup--very memorable! It has been expanded and enhanced since that time. Not long ago we ate in the restaurant--the food is still excellent. The hotel is... More

We use the Hotel du Glacier for our clients who book on our trekking holidays in particular on the Haute Route. The feedback we have received from our clients this summer has been great... it is well located with good facilities and food and friendly helpful service.

I really liked this property. We went in the Summer for the hiking. The entrance and the hotel are ensconced in pink and purple flowers. The room was spacious with a great view. The staff were friendly. The restaurant was great. The only thing that I would say is that this is a hotel not a bed and breakfast and... More

We loved the night we spent here on our Haute Route trek. The food in the restaurant was great. Lovely lambshanks. The decor is a bit quirky but it really works. We had a lovely room with a balcony and view of Mount Collon. It had a very comfortable lounge and free wifi. We will be back!
