Very quiet, comfortable and clean. Lovely location on the river; with some great view Ls. Brekky selection is tremendous for a smaller hotel. Staff are helpful and always on hand. The Japanese restaurant, Satsuki, literally around the corner make for a great combo. Would not look to stay elsewhere on a future trip. For walking up the valley de L... More

Excellent hotel, the staff great, everything is in place for your happiness. The room super, clean and comfortable, the only point is the cable tv. But you don't go there to watch the tv anyway. The busses to the ski fields were a steps from the hotel, the location is fantastic, near of the city center but not exactly on... More

The location totally makes this a great hotel. Walking distance to all the shops, restaurants, and bars. But very quiet location, which is nice. Great storage room for our ski gear. Our room was clean but very basic. For a 3-star hotel you get exactly what you see on their website, no surprises. Decent hotel in an expensive town. Staff... More

I spent two nights in this hotel and we all were very satisfied. The rooms were big enough for two people and we did have nice views from our rooms.

We spent in Hotel de l'Arve 4 nights (19-23.02.2014). In my opinion this is great quality comparing to the price that you are paying. We were looking on many hotels and finally chose this one and we didn't regret. The place is wonderful. We were staying in the room 45 (double superior room) on the third floor at the side... More

Just returned from a 4 night stay with my girlfriend. Great value for the money and very accomodating staff (store bags/skis if arrive before check in or after check out).
