For Switzerland, and especially Arosa, not a bad price
Reviewed 30 August, 2021
Please keep in mind that rarely do I book a hotel in Switzerland given that it is my native country, but because of restrictions it happened this year. We were here for 3 nights in summer and among the positive aspects of this place is the location. Because of its central position, the train station is at a 5 minute walking distance (post as well) and the squirrel path is also very close. However, because it is located on the road, this hotel does not have its own parking. We were advised to park on an attached street (1 minute walking distance). The price for the parking is cheap at night and increases during the day (still remains reasonable). The second potential negative aspect of the road is that it could (potentially) become noisy at night. Now, we were sleeping on the opposite side so did not hear anything. Also, the road is possibly not extremely used at night, so I think you should be able to sleep comfortably. There is however, the church which faces the hotel and this one could potentially interrupt your sleep. Upon entering the building you will find a corridor and the reception is located on the left. It is perhaps not so clear for newcomers, as upon arrival we did not see anyone here and the reception consists of one singular table (low table) with a computer. The classic reception with high tables and the hidden computers behind these is not to be expected here (just so you know what you are looking for). Because there was no one at the desk we had to ring the bell located on the table. I am not sure what the common area exactly is, but looks like a furniture shop (the chairs at the fourth floor are for sale). The receptionist was extremely friendly as he showed us were we could park and also took the time to print the Arosa cards for us. This is definitely a plus of staying here, as you will get the free access to cablecars and other attractions in the town. The rooms are very very small ( you will notice upon entering that the bed takes up almost all of the room, with the size of the bathroom and shower also being quite small). There was a wooden closet in the room and the bed was quite comfortable. I can however see where the manager of the hotel was heading, as the rooms are entitled according to some element of the Earth (wood, metal, water, ...) and the room is themed that way. This is perhaps the original touch they wanted to give in addition to the cover of the pillows highlighting the name of the location. Overall I would say that the hotel does correspond to the official three star rating: because of the location and the type of building it is probably not possible to extend the size of the rooms without renouncing on the current number of customers (this is also valid for the missed parking and reception/common area, bathroom). We ended up spending 100 CHF/night which I believe is quite average/good for Arosa. Again, I do not usually stay in touristic places in Switzerland as I myself am Swiss but by visiting restaurants in the town I could notice that this place is more expensive than the average Swiss town. Regarding the price, the negative note is possibly the breakfast with a price of 30CHF. I do not know what they serve (maybe they serve all the cheese, yougurt, meat imaginable) but that seems quite expensive. Suggestion: facing the hotel is a tea room which opens at 7 AM and the prices are a lot cheaper. If you are just a few people coming to Arosa, on a budget and with relatively low overnight standards (not a 5 star hotel or something like this) this might be the place you are looking for (except for the breakfast part; either you wait for lunch or you can visit the tea room). If you are instead many (more than 4 per room) and have higher standards, you might want to look into something else.
A great find; well located, contemporary clean rooms and outstanding service

We came upon this because it had universally excellent reviews and discovered that they were well deserved. Our one bedroom suite was a good size, well decorated, light and airy and immaculate. The service is outstanding, with Nick and his bevy of attractive, competent and helpful ladies always available to help. As noted, there is no TV in the rooms, but Ipads are available. There is also no spa, but this will be rectified soon. Breakfast consists of all natural, fresh ingredients; dinner is available at several nearby gourmet restaurants (once Covid restrictions are lifted). I would definitely stay here again.
Great location, nice design and the best - the most welcoming staff

I just spend a weekend with friends in Arosa. I loved the place. Certainly, it is not a hotel with lots of amentities. But what we needed, was a place to sleep and breakfast. The reception area in a store is nicely made, the rooms are renovated and look really nice with a great shower. The breakfast was much more than I expected - but best of all was the staff. All of them were so welcoming and accomodating. The hospitality is second to none. Definitely a place to go back again.
Small boutique hotel

It‘s a small boutique hotel with very nice decoration, nice staff at a central location in arosa. The price was also more than fair. There is no tv in the room - which is great in my opinion - but you can get an ipad for free. Would stay again!

Central, top service, fantastic individual rooms with wonderful attention to detail.
Can highly recommend this hotel. Breakfast was served, the eggs benedict were top.
The young man at the reception was very helpful.
