Apparently, the place has been (and still is) under renovation for quite a while. Our taxi driver wasn't even sure the hotel was open for business. After going through a dark side-door and up two flights of stairs, we found the small, temporary front desk. My husband and I arrived around 10pm, having pre-paid for a room with a king... More

The first night we arrived very late, from a long drive and were given a budget room, even through we had pre-paid for a normal twin room. The staff were apologetic and said we would be upgraded to the best room for the remainder of our stay (7 nights). Happily they kept their word. The bigger room made conference preparation... More

No iron or fridge. Reception lady was not to friendly and did not quit understand English. Left at 5am on departure day and still... More

Hotel Arosa's location is great as it is just in front of the subway station Martinstrasse. Also near Ruttenscheneider where the street has plenty of shops. Room is pretty decent as well and breakfast is good for its price.

The hotel is situated on Ruttenscheider street at three subway station far away from city center. The position is good considering that near this hotel there are many pubs and restaurants.

Well located close to the fairs centre, this hotel is functional and does the job, without the need to be extravagant. Rooms are modest but satisfactory, Breakfast very good. We were most impressed by the female morning receptionist who was always very helpful and cheerful. Her constant smile is truly an asset for the hotel.

Hotel is well placed for the exhibition centre and is staffed by some of the most helpful hotel staff I have ever come across. Breakfast is great too. Just as well, because the interior decor is hideous. The rooms are dark and oppressive and the bedding is beyond pathetic! The wi-fi is also really unreliable.
