Garbo ticked all the right boxes, and was the best value, last minute accommodation i could find. Ideal location just minutes from Medran, and with the popular Netsu restaurant downstairs, as well as the Garbo bar. The room was reasonably comfortable, but fairly basic, with a rather old fashioned and not very powerful shower. The website is pretty accurate, and... More

The staff were really friendly and helpful and the location is great, however the hotel rooms are not worthy of 2 stars. I struggled to get a warm shower after coming back after skiing, apparently due to limited water tank capacity. The electrics are also faulty; we experienced a power outage whilst there. Not worth the CHF 200+ rack rate.... More

Having booked the hotel for a party of 8 I was worried when I was subsequently alerted to the reviews on this site. I needn't have! The hotel is absolutely fine. It is a 2 star hotel so if you are expecting a 5 star experience all I can say is get real! The location is superb; 150 yds to... More

No messing about with buses and handy for the bars, shops and restaurants. Breakfast is more than acceptable and the staff are friendly. The rooms are a... More

The hotel is very well located (between the central plaza of verbier and the ski lifts), the staff is very nice and ready to help you at anytime. Eventhough the it is not luxurious, the rooms are clean and the two restaurants have a very good quality food and service. The receptionist are very professional and advised me on how... More

This is a horrible hotel, even worse than some realy realy bad hotel experiences I had in New York. It has only 2 stars so one can't expect much, but also keeping that in mind, it is shocking and should be avoided at all costs. The rooms are very small, dirty sheets and old towels with strange spots, too soft... More

Just returned from a weeks skiing booked a part of a package deal. We went to Verbier and stayed at the Hotel Garbo. It is a 2 star hotel and this is worth bearing in mind however even taking this into account it was a poor hotel. Location was good, being only a 5 minute walk from the main lift... More
