I stayed here during the Omega Masters Golf tournament for one night and after reading the reviews was probably over expecting. Check in was quick and received a room on 4th floor. The room was fairly small but had everything I needed. It even had a nice balcony looking out to a great mountain view. The breakfast was good with... More

As opposed to most other Swiss Historic Hotels, who are mostly really old, the Bella Lui is from the 1930s and has a beautiful charm of the early tourism days. You can really feel the history of the building. The highlight is your balcony: A fabulous view down the Valais, just awesome. For a 10CHF upgrade you can get a... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The present-day Hotel Bella Lui - "beautiful light" in the ancient Valais dialect - was built in 1930 and stands today as a listed building, testimony to modernist architecture. It was originally opened as a luxury sanatorium. Later it served amongst others as a spa and holiday home. The hotel will close in September and the structural alterations to transform it into a youth hostel are expected to last eight months. ... more   less
