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

I really enjoyed my stay at the Hotel Art de Vre. The rooms were clean and very comfortable with excellent views from the deck. The bed was particularly comfortable although the down duvet was too warm for the weather (very warm springtime in Crans Montana). There was a couple of small deficiencies in maintenance evident, but overall the hotel is... More

We have stayed several times at the Hotel ART DE VIVRE which is a nice place to stay in the Crans-Montana resort. Standing as a good value for money, this hotel is a relaxing place to stay a few days. The spa is not very big but offers all the necessary amenities, with a very nice outdoor sauna benefiting from... More

We stay 4 nights, beds were not good enough for the rates of the room. Windows in the room and corridors are older than me, rooms are dark, not enough space and very noisy from the room next to yours. I would never spend such money for this quality, I have no idea how they get their 4 stars????

Well located hotel, just between Crans & Montana ( 5min walk from both centers). Lovely modern & design rooms. Great food prepared by a Chef which will satisfy your personal taste if needed. Staff that will make you feel like being at home. Apres-ski with a modern spa: small pool with streams, outside (in the snow) heated jacuzzi, 2 hammams,... More
