Hotel Vorab
Ranked #14 of 16 Hotels in Flims
Reviewed 24 January 2011

The hotel had awful service! The receptionist never smiles and actually the only people who did (younger women), worked at the restaurant. The smell from the fonduestube is god awful, most people can't bare it I'm sure. The location is ok, but there are hotels at better places if you're planning on hitting the slopes. The value is terrible, very high prices and very small rooms. Wouldn't recommend for anyone.

Reviewed 17 December 2009

We (adult+2child) stayed at the hotel for 7 nights during December 2009.
Excellent location, about 30m from the bus stop and ski shuttle.
Superb! 5-course dinner at the hotel restaurant (I recommend the halfboard, it is one of the best restaurants in town).
Noissy a little at rooms facing the main road (but not crucial).
There is a free internet, but had to low signal from our room.
Very nice sauna room, clean and comfortable rooms.

Stayed here for two nights in May 2009. Overall we were very unhappy with our choice of hotel. Firstly, Flims is a town with a long main street and this hotel is at the end where there are little or no restaurants, bars, shops. The hotel is on the main street so even though we had a room with a balcony there was a lot of noise from the road. The rooms were miserable, the bathroom similar to a one you would find in a nursing home. The decor and in particular the carpet throughout the hotel needs a serious update. The breakfast was less than adequate. There definitely are a lot better hotels in Flims for the same price. Keep looking!

Spent 4 nights here on bed and breakfast basis with my boyfriend and was very happy with our choice of hotel. The room was clean and warm with a great shower in the en suite. Plenty free parking also which was great as we drove from Friedrichshafen airport (very good road to the hotel - no issues with snow/ice as only a few miles from the main dual carriageway). Breakfast was one of the best I've had in Europe - great choice of breads, cheese, fresh fruit salad and you also had the option of boiling an egg. Location was also great as we were able to walk directly to the main ski lift (apparently this is unusual as many people end up relying on buses in this resort). The added bonus was leaving our ski gear at the rental shop in the night storage so could walk in trainers rather than uncomfortable ski boots to and from the slopes :-)
Found the skiing in Flims/Laax really enjoyable - esp as very few moguls - the pistes are wide and not too steep - great for intermediates..
A word of caution for those planning to use the sauna/spa area - its very nice but be prepared for nudeness!!
