Only popped in for a hot chocolate on the way to the Therme but very nice and quite. Enjoyed siting outside in the square watching the world go by. If we ever come back we would most likely stay here.

Hotel Alpina is a gem. Great food, clean rooms, lots of space, friendly staff. Love this place. So happy to return again one day. Vals is the most gorgeous place in the world to me. We enjoyed the four course meal. The wait staff was exceptionally hospitable. The breakfast we hearty and gave us what we needed to start our... More

Hotel is located in the center of town. Short walking distance to Therme Vals. Hotel offers discounted entry tickets to guests. Room price inclusive buffet breakfast. It's convenient for skiers, hikers and therme visitors. The hotel is small and very clean. Room is good size for a small hotel. Our room has a view of the snowy mountain. People in... More

The location on the main square is ideal, you seat outside and you see the village life. The reception is most of the time empty and you can tell they have been doing it for to long, no walking maps on loan, free local water on day 1 but not on day 2, rooms have not one painting or decoration,...

In an attempt to say something about Hotel Alpina in Vals and the experience the residence procures, precision is imperative. Located in the heart of the old village of Vals, off the river, on the main square, surrounded by wooden houses, a fountain in the middle of the square, the architectural quality of the both minimalist and traditional hotel building...

I am familiar with Vals, having spent a couple of days in different hotels during the last 10 years. This time we tried out the Alpina and were quite satisfied, though it will probably not be our choice next time we'll go again to Vals. The Alpina offers an excellent location (only 7 minutes on foot to the thermal baths)... More

We went to Vals for the Therme, but chose this hotel as we thought it to be better value for money than the Hotel Therme. This indeed turned out to be the case. Perhaps in response to the popular Zumthor-desgned spa, Alpina Hotel also stresses its interest in architecture and design. There are several books and periodicals on architecture available... More

We had gps issues getting to Vals from Ronchamp and wound up arriving there 3hrs late. Which meant we missed our massage and entry to the Therme Vals booking that we'd made months ago. By this time we were somewhat frazzled and the lovely woman behind the desk rebooked these things for us for the next day and I don't... More

We stayed at Hotel Alpina following an extended stay in Vals. We had been staying at the Therme but due to the short notice of our stay, the Therme was fully booked so we were recommended the Hotel Alpina. The hotel notified us that the room would be small however it was very warm, clean, comfortable and functionable and just... More

My wife and I spent five days in Vals and we stayed at the Hotel Alpina as advised by a friend. The hotel is a great value-for-money place. They can also get you discounted tickets to the Vals Therme! Our room was very comfy and well designed, but we already expected that... What it was a surprise for us was... More
