Arolla is an attractive mountain resort reached after a long day's walk from Cabane de Prafleuri. The hotel is located right in the centre, there is a small supermarket nearby. There are flowers everywhere, which makes it really inviting. We had an ensuite room with a balcony, clean and nice. There is a terrace downstairs with lovely views, good place...

The Hotel du Glacier is a great little place tucked away in peaceful Arolla. Nothing spectacular but it has everything you need. As with everything in Switzerland, daily incidentals are not very cheap. Wifi not available in rooms but I don't think that's really why people are travelling to the area... One suggestion: If you're based at the hotel, get...

Very conveniently located at the center of Arolla, and adorned with thousands of flowers in the summer, the Hotel looks attractive and has outdoor space for drinks and coffee, as well as great views. The staff is friendly. The rooms are chalet style, but not elegant -- a cheaper version of the great swiss tradition. Our bathroom was just a...

My husband and I were staying at Camp Arolla, and decided to try and walk up the mountain one day. The up was amazing, interesting, fantastic, and very hot once the clouds cleared! And after we'd managed about as much "up" as we could, we started on the down. It was at this point that The Hotel du Glacier became...

Stayed here on our hike of the Haute Route and enjoyed dinner (fondue and salad) and breakfast. The room (#6) was clean, charming and very comfortable with an en suite shower and toilet as well as a balcony overlooking Mont Collon. Dinner for two (shared cheese fondue, salad and 2 cidres was 49 CHF, but par for the course of...

Such a lovely place to spend a night after hiking! Amazing views of the mountains both from the terrace of the restaurant and the balcony of our room. Charming decor and the most spectacular flowers. Had an excellent but simple dinner of cheese fondue and salad. And then a hearty breakfast before setting out to hike, that was included in...

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...

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...
