Hotel Arc-en-ciel was in a great location. It was right next to the gondolas to go up to the mountain and is a short 7 minuet walk to the city center. The service was excellent and the staff was very helpful and friendly. I will definitely go back!

Lovely hotel in the foothills of the mountain, very convenient for the ski lift. Great staff and a very comfortable room - possibly a bit warm for some. Nice breakfast with a decent selection. Superb views

We went for dinner in the restaurant. A family dinner in a great ambience. Very family oriented. They have everything from pizza to typical Swiss dishes or international. I guess the hotel must be as good as the restaurant. Excellent.

Its location close to many of the summer walking routes means this hotel was picked by us for its convenience. But when we got there we found we had picked a real gem. The staff are a great asset and we were well looked after, particularly in the restaurant.
