2/5 Poor

Cheap but....
This is one the cheapest places to stay in Saas-Fee and, of course, you get what you pay for. But the Walser is a very basic annexe of the Hotel Tenne where you check in. The room was old but clean and reasonably well appointed. But there is a derelict air about the rest of the place. Don't be fooled by pictures here and elsewhere of a comfortable lounge etc. The public room - which was once a bar and breakfast room - is a bit of a dump and looks completely neglected. There is a free wi-fi - obtained through the most old-fashioned code machine - but it's a weak signal and not much use for anything. Handy for the bus terminal, shops and bars but quite a hike to the lifts. The ski storage close to the Alpin Express lift is handy. Whether this is a good value option is a matter of opinion but not certain I will be returning.

Perfect hotel for our long weekend
Fantastic service from Richard as our flight was delayed and we did not arrive until 3am!! He put our room key safe for us to find and even sent me a photo of where to find it!! Would stay there or Hotel Tennne again as they served the best waffles in their sister hotel!

All you need.
Good location close to several restaurants and next to a supermarket. Close to the bus station - easy to get the bus to the Alpin Express. Accommodation is basic but comfortable and was excellent value.
