The hotel is very well located with parking. Next to chairlift & not even 10 min. walk from the city-centre. The staff was very friendly & helpful. The standard double-room has a very good size with nice balcone. Would definitely go back.

An excellent hotel, well run by Christianne Matti and her team. The Pizzeria / Restaurant served us well for our two week stay. The hotel is an easy level walk into the town. An ideal place for a non skiing member of the party. Great shopping and local attractions. Next to the slopes, one could not as for a better... More

Everyone of all ages enjoys this restaurant very often you see three generations enjoying lunch or dinner together . The children have loads to do with an indoor playroom in the winter and outside in the garden in the summer ? Around 40 sfr for a pizza makes it rather expensive though. The pizza is excellent it must be said... More

I am a first time visitor to the Alps. Was in Geneva on business and decided to chance some early season skiing (mid Dec). Chose Gstaad due to early season snow reports and presence of snowmaking. Found this hotel on TripAdvisor. It was just terrific for us - understanding that we are not millionaires are were there for some skiing,... More

Stayed in Gstaad for 4 nights during November and picked Arc en Ciel based on previous reviews. There was some renovation going on during our stay which did not detract from this lovely hotel. We had a nice room in the other bulding that makes up the hotel .. only a 30 second walk from the main building. The room... More

I came to Gstaad from Geneva to meet up with my aunt and uncle who were staying in town. I chose the place based on value for money and I was not disappointed! I had a lovely room on the river's edge, and enjoyed being a bit "separate" from the village of Gstaad. My room was spacious, and I found... More

As a 50th birthday treat we paid the £360 a night to stay here. Had dinner too. While the room was beautifully appointed we were stuck in an annexe with a view of the car park and the nearby wine warehouse. Staff barely spoke to us, didn't even mention when and where breakfast would be served.

We absolutely loved this property - the service here was phenomenal as was the restaurant. The staff is extremely hospitable and thoughtful. The vegetarian choices at the restaurant were plenty and one could enjoy their meals here for a full week. We stayed here for a week and weren't saturated as one usually is after staying at a hotel.

I have been staying at this family owned hotel for many years. The rooms are all very comfortable and extremely clean. Ask for a room on the river, the sound of the water flowing is very soothing. The restaurant is very nice with smiling efficient staff. The menu has a large selection of offerings but the pizzas are to die... More

Good traditional hotel in a beautiful location. Get a room facing river. Good breakfast and lunch. Courteous staff. Had a spacious room with wooden decor and comfortable bed. Hotel within walking distance from center of Gstaad. Close to chair lifts. Ideal for winter and summer vacations.
