Way up the mountain!Posted 17/08/2010 on Hotels.com
Leysin is a beautiful ski resort close to Montreux, Switzerland. During ski season the hotel would be ideal as it is right next to both the ski lift and cable car. We were there the first week in July. No snow but still great. The view driving up the mountain was breathtaking. The hotel is family owned and run. The manager is fluent in English, German and French and was extremely helpful. She helped us choose some great site seeking locations in the area and had printed information on everything within 150 km. There are rooms in the original house and a newer section. The newer rooms are larger and more modern. The front wall is a combination of glass doors and window for a fantastic view of the valley. By American standards the beds in Switzerland are very firm. King size beds are rare. The Au Bel Air has the choice of separate twin beds or two twins put together on the same box spring. Our room also had bunk beds. The internet was free and very fast! Breakfast included cereals, muesli, ham, cheese, breads, juices, coffee and tea. No other meals were available at the Hotel this time of year. There are many restaurants and a large grocery store close by. Food in Switzerland is twice the cost as the US so this came in handy. We had a great stay and would not hesitate to go back this hotel in the future.

outstanding value and charmPosted 09/08/2009 on Hotels.com
I recently stayed at Au Bel Air hotel in Leysin two nights, separated by a week. When I rushed in an hour after check-in time for my second stay, the owner, who was working with other guests, looked up, greeted me by name, and simply handed me my key and said, "Welcome back, your room is ready!" That was the end of my registration process. His wife drove me to the train station after my first night there--I had a car for the second night--and they could not have been more helpful. The rooms are simple, plain, mountain-rustic wood, but very comfortable and well appointed. One caution, however. Leysin is a town built on a giant complex of switch-back roads, and the street signs are non-existent, and places can be hard to find. A detailed map is essential. Leaving yesterday morning in the dark, rain, and fog--read "in the clouds"--was an interesting experience. But I plan to take my family back next year, and I'm sure I'll be recognized. This place was a real find.

Great clean 2+ star hotelPosted 08/09/2008
Very nice european style hotel. The hotel is next to the Leysin ski gondola. The rooms are small but well kept. Satelite tv with many different language choices. My room had a european double bed (which is two twins pushed together) and a set of twin bunk beds. The room has its own bathrrom with a shower. Not the greatest quality towels and wash cloths but the rooms are kept very clean. Wifi internet is also available.
