Hotels in Arosa
There are two 5-star hotels and they are both very good, as evidenced by the high ratings given to them by previous guests.
The Tschuggen Grand Hotel Arosa is perhaps more striking because it has its own private funicular ski lift. It also hosts a spa and wellness area spread over 5000 m².
The Arosa Kulm Hotel & Alpin Spa is conveniently situated at the bottom of the piste next to a ski lift. It has kids clubs, a mini golf course and a bowling alley as well as all the mod cons you would expect from a very good 5 star hotel.
4-star hotels usually stand out in a ski resort, but not in Arosa where there seems to be one around every corner. The Waldhotel National is technically a 4-star ‘superior’ hotel and that seems right. It is actually two hotels merged into one: the traditional Waldhotel and the modern Chesa Silva. It has an indoor panorama pool, 7 saunas, 2 relaxation areas, a gym, a massage and a beauty treatments area. It’s main restaurant was awarded 16 Gault Millau point (the equivalent of a Michelin star). It’s near the top of the resort and you can usually ski to the door.
The BelArosa Superior Hotel is nicer to look at because it resembles a large, and very smart chalet. It’s a 5-minute walk from the centre of Arosa and about 400m from Arosa Train Station and the main lifts. You can ski to the door and it has a spa and fitness area that includes an indoor pool with a 30 yards water slide, various saunas and steam baths, a relaxation room, and a modern fitness room. It also has a slightly cheaper sister hotel less than 100m away, the Alpin Arosa, and its guests can share the same facilities. The 4-star Valsana Hotel & Appartements overlooks the lake on the edge of the resort, so has beautiful views. In good snow conditions you can ski all the way back to it (with some pushing) but it’s a bit of a hike (or a very short bus ride) to the lifts. Other recommended 4-star hotels include the Hotel Cristallo and Blatter’s Bellavista Hotel.
4 star hotels that offer something a little bit different include the Hotel Prätschli, located near the piste, high above Arosa in a genuinely ski-in, ski-out location; and Robinson Club Arosa, located close to the Untersee Lake, which is an all-inclusive adults-only hotel.
There are well over a dozen 3-star and 2-star hotels to choose from. Based on location near the slopes and lifts, and favourable reviews from previous guests, the best for skiers are probably Hotel Hohe Promenade, Arlenwald Hotel, Hotel Garni Sonnenhalde, Hotel GSpan, Arosa Vetter Hotel, Hotel Astoria, and Hotel Stoffel. The Home hotel is slightly further from the lifts and pistes but gets very good ratings. The 2-star Erzhorn Hotel (about 300m from the lifts) 2-star Hotel Hold (450m from the lifts) , the 2 star Pension Mezzaprada (200m from the lifts) and the 1 star Hotel Haus am Wald (100m from the lifts) all offer good, simple accommodation for skiers that is vouched for by previous guests. In good snow conditions you can ski back to all of them.
