We came to Flims for a long weekend of snowboarding and skiing and chose this hotel as it was by far the cheapest option, included free parking and was just a five minute walk to the ski lift.
At three-star level, it's not a luxury hotel but the rooms, although basic, are clean and provide everything you need when you're on an active holiday. I'm totally shocked by the previous review about the receptionists being rude - all of the staff at the hotel were really friendly, helpful and polite during our stay.
The inclusive breakfast is really great, lots of healthy options as well as a big selection of fantastic local cheeses and freshly baked breads and pastries.
The spa is basic but offers two saunas, a steam room and a jacuzzi. As there are a lot of European/German visitors, there's a lot of nudity in the spa, which may put some people off.
The Italian restaurant, which forms part of the hotel, is fantastic. Great pasta and pizza, especially after a busy day on the slopes.
The only negative aspect of the hotel was that the fondue restaurant really stank the whole hotel out and in the communal areas there was a strong smell of cheese.
Overall I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a short break in Flims. The location is brilliant, really close to the ski lift and bars and restaurants, the staff were friendly and helpful, the rooms are basic but clean and overall it offers good value for money.
