“characteristic village, functional hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

Great spot for hikes straight from the hotel. If you are planning to make challenging, scenic 5/6hr walks in beautiful surroundings this would be a good hotel to stay 2/3 nights. But also hikes along the river with great sunbathing& swimming spots. Make sure you bring a good walking map (Kompass valle Maggia for instance). The village is very pitureque with authetic houses. There is a small supermarket and a bakery (to buy picnic lunch), but not much else. Terrace and restaurant next door to the hotel are more atmospheric, but food in the hotel might be better (we tried both). Our rating of the hotel is average as our experience was 'okay'. Reception staff was not really attentive, you are not made to feel welcome, which is a shame for a small hotel like this! Breakfast buffet is not replenished. We asked for bread, juice and cheese as everything was finished by guests having breakfast before us and kindly received refills though. The decor in the rooms is rather dull and lacks charm and warmth. Our room was spacious, but with Ikea bed side lights, no hair dryer and no wall art a bit underwhelming.

I have been at Hotel Walser in May with my girlfriend, coming from Lugano. The road to reach the village is winding, but once up at the village the atmosphere is incredible.
Hotel Walser is located right in the center of the village, a Walser village. Rooms are very big for a 3 stars hotel.
The hotel's restaurant is ok, food quality is good.

It is a perfect village to relax!!!!

It is a good place to stay, with excellent kitchen, optimal price / value, bedware could be better, synthetic cover is either too warm (no humidity absorption) or without it is too cold. Nevertheless overall experience was satisfactory. Very quiet place. Room size is big compared to hotels in the same price class.
