Be careful with this hotel if you arrive late at night or depart early in the morning. There is no 24-hours Front Desk service in summer and there is no info about it on the hotel’s web site. Moreover, they don’t do breakfast before 7:30am. If you leave early & breakfast is included into your room rate, think what you... More

We stayed one night at the Art de Vivre and had diner in the restaurant of the hotel. The hotel is very well located between Montana and Crans Montana. Close to facilities, boutiques, restaurants, bars and clubs. The hotel is nice with very nicely decorated rooms with wooden furnitures. Rooms are of an OKish size. THe maxi double is perfect...

We stay here for three nights in July. Loved the hotel. It had a very homey fell to it. Staff were very friendly, spoke English quite well, and had lots of helpful information. Our room was well equipped, a terrific bathroom, and balcony overlooking the Alps. The buffet breakfasts were wonderful. There is a bar in the lobby area. They... More

For the price of 350CHF per night this nice Hotel/Spa could have had better WiFi, the speed was quite slow. The bar had some food plates "dried meat plate" on the menu but they were not available outside dinner and lunch times. The whole point of bar food is that you have a snack at a time other than lunch... More

Stayed at this hotel for a week's ski holiday through Inghams. The small size and quiet location was the appeal for us, and we stayed with another couple. The hotel staff were lovely and friendly, and very helpful. For example, they offer a free lift service to the nearest lift station, which whilst only 500 meters away, they were happy... More

The hotel has a charming feel, nestled between the two lakes, a short walk from the Montana lifts and close to Crans. The view of the mountains are breathtakingly beautiful, from the jacuzzi. The sauna, Turkish baths and swimming pool offer relaxation after a hard day ski-ing. The spa treatments and particularly the massage were amazing. The food was excellent... More

I loved this hotel. One of my favorites. Our room was impeccable! The beds were very comfortable and our balcony was my favorite place. It looks straight out over the alps. The room was very spacious and all the staff was very helpful. Definitely plan to be back again!

We were two couples staying for a long ski weekend at the Art de Vivre. We chose different room types, and both couples had a great time at the hotel. Check-in was prompt and easy, even for non-french speakers such as ourselves. Within minutes we were in our rooms and unpacking. Our room which was a full-south facing room with... More

We booked 2 rooms, 1 double and 1 single. The double room was large and south-facing. Comfortable firm beds, soft fluffy comforter covers and pillows, minimalist décor. Spacious terrace with a table, 2 chairs, and mountain views. Large bathroom with standard amenities. Wifi. The single room was actually a southern-facing double room with a separate living room alcove, and terrace.... More
