This hotel provides a comfortable setting from which to view the high Alps. Situated at the base of glacial peaks, the Sunstar Boutique Hotel gives one a base from which to hike, ski or simply rest amid spectacular scenery. It is a simple, yet clean and comfortable property. It has very amiable staff who are willing to help accommodate almost any request for assistance in planning a great stay. We went to Saas-Fee alon the spur of the moment, but easily found information on site to make our long weekend fun and adventurous.
I cannot recommend this hotel more highly.

3 star hotel in very good location, managed by the excellent Dom Collection. Friendly. Cindy does a great job and cares about her guests.
1) Breakfast team is friendly but could be better trained and more attentive, often missing details such as replenishing food or making sure all is working well (egg cooker for example not cooking at all).
2) Wellness area has a sauna but no towels. Would come back especially if carpets get replaced with wood floor.
For a truly fine, 3 star hotel in Switzerland , consider the Hotel Berghof . It is the perfect accommodation in Saas Fee …More
We stayed here in early March for the tail end of the ski season and had an enjoyable time.
The rooms, while small, were comfortable and cozy. The website describes the bathrooms as partially open, which in our room meant that the toilet and a sink were in a separate room, while the shower opened directly off the bedroom with a sink beside it. This is fine for a romantic getaway (as ours was) but something you may want to consider if you're planning to share a room with someone who is not your significant other.
Our rate included breakfast, which was ample and tasty. We had supper in the hotel restaurant once, which was good, though there are so many restaurant options in Saas Fee I'd recommend getting out into the village and trying a few of them, rather than eating at the hotel repeatedly.
The staff were generally helpful whenever we had a question or request.
A few things to note for your stay, if you're here to ski:
- the hotel wasn't able to assist with pre-purchasing lift tickets, so we had to go to one of the ticket windows in the village and wait in line for about an hour to get our passes.
-the transfer to the hotel took us quite a while. From Geneva, it took us a little over 3 hours to get there.
-you can rent skis / boots at Cesar Sport. There are at least 3 in the village, so go to the one right beside the Alpin Express lift (hotel staff can show you on the map) and ask them to store your skis / boots there.
The Hotel is very centrally located next to the village square. The best thing about the hotels is the "ice breaker crew", the name with which the hotel staff is known as. I was the first guest for this year summer season, my first visit to Saas Fee.
Daniel, the 'dude' was very courteous in explaining to me the various excursions I could do.
My only suggestion (maybe its mistimed) is to have a wider menu on the room service.
Will be back in jan 2013...

"Very friendly family run hotel with lovely rooms. "
We arrived at Hotel Allalin unsure as to how to get to the hotel and were greeted by transport from the hotel and taken there (which wasn't far but was much appreciated with our luggage and not knowing where we were going) and checked in easily. The hotel was great and we couldn't fault it. The room was lovely with a huge deep bath with views out onto the mountains, a really comfortable bed and great shower too. We did have a nice balcony with a lovely view but it was a bit too chilly to sit outside! As we were at the hotel out of season they gave us breakfast in our room for several days which was great - lovely fresh bread with ham and cheese and eggs. The couple who ran the hotel were very friendly and couldn't do enough to help us. Would thoroughly recommend Hotel Allalin and we are hoping to go back this winter!
Second time i have been there, i am a huge traveller, spending every week in another hotel around the world, this is the best hotel i have ever been!! Special tnx to the belgian receptionist! She is one of a kind!!
