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.

This conference hotel is actually much much better than I had expected. It has been completely refitted and refurbished. Everything is ultramodern and spotlessly clean. The real surprise was the food in the Italian inspired restaurant. Not cheap, but delicious. The chef is clearly making an effort to make a varied changing menu. It is not Michelin starred, far from... More

I work often in the Olten region and stay in the Arte Hotel. The rooms are nice and well equiped and staff is friendly. Breakfast is fine only fresh juice is missing. For the evening you can eat in the Pure restaurant, that is ok for one time.
