Excellent food, staff, and service combined for an awesome stay in Leysin, Switzerland. Great location, right next to the lift up to the top of the mountain, where there are beautiful hikes and two awesome Via Ferratas. Trust me, take the gondola up and see for yourself. I've travelled all over Switzerland now and some of my favorite sites are...

Beautiful views, kind staff, clean, cozy, great food, would definitely recommend to anyone! Lots of storage in my room and right next to gondola. The bed was simple but very comfortable and it had a surprising amount of space with a nice big glass door for taking in the scenery.

Stayed here for a snowboarding holiday with a couple of friends in March 2014. The location is fantastic couldn't be any closer to the telecabin. Service was excellent, special thanks to Dominique for the lift to the station with all of our kit at the end of our stay. Room was clean and simple and very reasonably priced compared to...

We are a family of 9 (including 2 kids under 10, a 13-year old, 4 twenty-something's and the grandparents), and for many, this was the first time skiing. Leysin is a great spot to ski and a great village with good restaurants. Dominique is a fantastic host and made our restaurant reservations for us every night. La Calabre was our...

I looked at trip advisor before making my decision to stay at this hotel. I was terribly disappointed with the hotel, service and food. I felt like I had been taken. The only good thing about the place is the location. It's very rudimentary. Would NOT recommend.

This hotel is the absolute closest place to stay for skiing in Leysin. The hotel is immediately at the base of the cable car (telecabin for you Europeans). The hotel is VERY clean as well and zero dust (normally I wonder at small family run operations). Friendly staff. I would have given this a 5 star rating, but we had...

The ultimate charm of Au Bel Air is that it is literally like living in a postcard that you looked at when you got the idea of coming to visit Switzerland. You could find hotels that are newer and flashier, but if you want a true, warm, welcoming Swiss experience this is the place for you. It truly is a...

This hotel is not just a good hotel, as the person who runs it takes notable pride in his hotel. The breakfast is great with homemade apple juice, fresh bread and about a dozen different (local) cheeses. The interior is a bit old fashioned but good and the beds are excellent. The Wifi was good and there are stores and...

The best thing about this hotel is that it is family run and the manager was very friendly and helpful. The wifi works and there is on-site parking. The breakfast room is very authentic and charming. The breakfast was adequate and the food was fresh. The bar closed at 6 p.m. but there is another hotel just up the road...

I had the opportunity to stay at this beautiful mountain inn for four weeks during my study abroad in Switzerland. I couldn't have asked for a cleaner, cozier place to stay.

“Rooms on the bottom floor have a full wall that's just a window, giving you an amazing view. Upstairs rooms let you wake up to the cheery sound of traditional Swiss cowbells. It's a win-win.”
