Yesterday I had to ask the receptionist of the Arte a business related question. I had to wait very long, because one of the three receptionist was catering to another guest and the other three were cheerfully designing some christmas-like card. No one could be bothered to help me. When the first receptionist was finally available, she answered my questions... More

Room was spacious and clean. And so was the bathroom. What makes this hotel differ from the usual ones are its efforts to live up to its name: putting art at display. I enjoyed my stay. The location is in a outdated "modern" area of Olten. But the city is so small, that both the train station and the old... More

I stayed 5 days in a recently remodeled room in the Arte. Having stayed many times before, the update was a pleasant surprise. There was a comfortable couch, very comfy bed, and the bathroom has a larger shower with rain-shower head. Both the rooms and the hallways were renovated. The breakfast was as I had remembered- the birchermuesli here is... More

We absolutely love the room design. It was designed very well and made our weekend stay in Olten very comfortable. However, we must say, we wished that the Reception would be a bit more friendly. We had some trouble understanding her explaination for a simple wifi request.
