Saas-Fee has about 60 hotels, ranging from 5-star luxury ones to simple guesthouses. There are over thirty 3-star hotels and there’s an even bigger choice in self-catering apartments; but choose location carefully if you don’t want a hike to the lifts.
Saas-Fee’s most prestigious hotel is the centrally situated 5-star Hotel Walliserhof with three restaurants, stylish Vernissage piano bar, indoor pool and extensive spa and wellness facilities. Just behind it in terms of historic reputation and facilities, but not in customer satisfaction, is the 5 star Capra Saas Fee. The Romantik Hotel Beau-Site (also called the Sunstar) and the Schweizerhof Gourmet & Spa are 4-star deluxe hotels with gourmet restaurants, swimming pool and wellness facilities.The 4-star Golfhotel Saaserhof is among the leading hotels in Saas-Fee and conveniently close to the ski lifts.
If your budget will not stretch to 5-star or 4-star, there are plenty of cheaper hotels and garni (bed & breakfast) hotels rated 3-stars or less including the Hotel Christiania (3-star) the Dom Collection Hotel Glacier (3-star) and the Hotel Artemis (3-star) in the heart of the village. If looking for hotel accommodation close to the ski lifts, the Hotel Derby (3-star) and Hotel Burgener (2-star) and Hotel Astoria are well-situated next to the lifts, whilst the Amber Ski-in/out Hotel & Spa (3 star) goes one better and lives up to its name.
Saas-Fee apartments and chalets
The Saas-Fee Tourist Office lists over two hundred and fifty chalet style apartment buildings, most of which have an official rating (5-star down to 1-star) and with a wide choice in each rating category. With so many chalet and apartment properties available it’s hard to make recommendations, other than to single out a few properties mainly because of their charming traditional exterior and convenient location.
In the 5-star chalet category, Alte Post (the old post office) is a charming 19th century chalet building which is centrally situated in the old quarter of Saas-Fee. The Alte Post offers 140m² luxury accommodation for 6 people including space for children to play and suitable for families who travel with their children’s nanny. Chez Nuit and Old Saas-Fee are similarly pretty 5-star chalets with accommodation for 4-6 people and conveniently situated in the centre of Saas-Fee.
If looking for 4-star rated chalet accommodation close to the ski lifts in Saas-Fee, try Haus Felix which has two apartments each sleeping 2-4 people or Haus Golf which has four 4-star and two 3-star rated apartments each sleeping between 2-6 people. Both are a short walk from the lifts. Amor is a larger 3-star chalet apartment building with multiple apartments each sleeping between 2-6 people and similarly close to the lifts. Bargecho is another multiple apartment building with 3-star rating, which is more centrally situated but not far from the lifts.
For something quaint the 3-star rated Le Camée (Tel: +41 27 957 1452) is a delightful looking detached petite chalet for up to 6 peoples just a short walk to the lifts. Pension Waldrand is a pretty red shuttered chalet apartment building immediately next to the base area and conveniently close to all ski lifts.
