You can not imagine how it is amazing to have your breakfast near to the river. You can not imagine how it is beautiful to open your window to see the pure green land scape. Arcenciel the nice friendly hotel has all of that and more. It is surrounded by wonderful natural life. So friendly stuff, humble spa and small...

Spent a week at Hotel Arc-en-ciel in July - our third visit. Again we were not disappointed - great service, food, hospitality and views. All staff members went out of their way to ensure we had an enjoyable stay. The hotel is a 5-10 minute walk from the centre of Gstaad in tranquil surroundings. We had a double room in...

Had lunch there the other day. The restaurant is basically Italian - has pizzas etc - but also a wide choice of other dishes including some traditional Swiss ones. The terrace was really lovely and it is out of the main pedestrian centre of Gstaad so a bit quieter. For families there is a nice small childrens playground next door...

I absolutely loved my stay here. All the staff were incredibly nice and helpful. Walking into my room I instantly felt a wave of relaxation come over me. From the water, little snacks, the bathrobe and slippers, even all the information about the area, I knew I had made the right choice. I had a very large balcony (I don't...

A synonym of the Gstaad paradox. Posh by its (especially Winter) clientele, yet very welcoming mid-mountain restaurant. The last manager who stayed in service for more than 3 decades was a gentleman with amazing service. The new one is....well, different. Food remains as good as it used to be 30 years ago, with the same classic dishes. The wood over...

Thank you for your nice review. Your comments and compliments are very welcome and a great motivation for the whole team. The last winter not only Gstaad was affected by the lack of snow.

We stayed for just one night in Arc-en-ciel and yet it was the most memorable stay of our Europe trip. Firstly the Gstaad place itself is very scenic and romantic. On top of that this beautiful hotel is like an icing on cake. The rooms are very spacious and the decor is top notch. There is plenty of space in...

We have been in that hotel 8 years ago (with three other friend families from Greece) and our family came back again this year for Easter. We found it broadly renovated, with modern wooden interior, alpine decoration and a very friendly staff (including the owner), extremely welcoming also to children (offers a big playroom downstairs and a nice cart-piste outside)....

If you're looking for a more casual and relaxed hotel with great service and probably the best family restaurant in Gstaad then this is the one. It's so nice to be in Gstaad and not feel like you have to dress up just to go down to the lobby. And it's right next to the Eggli Gondola and a short...
