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 The period furniture and ornaments have been replaced by standard facilities.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.
