Great location but the charm is gone
We first stayed here as the Bella Lui Hotel but it is now run by a youth hostel organisation. It has lost the charm of the private hotel and is now, because it is a hostel, more functional. The period furniture and ornaments have been replaced by standard facilities. However, the staff are very helpful and location is the key - within walking distance of Crans centre with some amazing views. But the breakfast is the big disappointment. It was wonderful but is now barely adequate. A small selection of breads, cheeses, meats, cereals and yoghurt and that's it. They are exactly the same every day with no variation at all. They will not even do you an egg (I did ask). It might be OK for a couple of days but after a week I was desperate for something else. Overall it is still worth a visit, but please do not be influenced by reviews more that 12 months old - it is now a very different place.

A real gem
Stayed for a week which went all too quickly. Staff both friendly and very efficient. Muriel and Franz extremely helpful with follow-up information and assistance. Good breakfast and had one dinner which was excellent. Central for everything, but tucked away in a quiet spot.

Historic 1930s hotel with beautiful situation
Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Bella Lui. The hotel is of the Bau Haus design, nicely maintained, and very clean.It has an excellent situation (half way between Crans and Montana) with stunning views. Breakfast was good-delicious fresh bread, eggs one could boil to taste, cheeses...The muesli could have been more interesting -Bircher muesli would be nice. The staff were exceedingly friendly and helpful, first class.

Great value at a luxury resort.
To be clear this is not a luxury boutique hotel (but the views are worth a million bucks). What it is though is an amazing value with friendly and super helpful staff. I took a side trip form a business meeting in Geneva to play in the Alps. This hotel is between Crans and Montana and each village (and lift station) is about a five to seven minute walk. The rooms are small but sufficient and I might go for a bigger one and bring the family next year.

Excellent accommodation and warm staff
Pretty much all I wanted from my stay in Crans-Montana; this is not a luxury hotel, but it's impeccably clean, it has everything you need, is located close to everything in the town, and the staff are very kind and helpful. Plus, my room on the fourth floor had a great view.
