First, we LOVED Saas-Fee.
My husband and I booked online the night before. I read other reviews that say employees of Marmotte picked them up in a from the parking lot, but we had no idea how to arrange that. We hauled our luggage up and down hills until we found the hotel (we were a bit "deer in the headlights" after getting off a 1.5 hour bus ride from Brig! We had no idea what we were in for!)
I assume hotel Marmotte is reasonably priced compared to all the other hotels in Saas Fee. You pay per PERSON, not per room so do not be shocked when the internet rate says 90 frank but you are charged 180 frank.
The owners speak very good English and are very cordial.
The room, linens and bathroom were all very clean. Great view of the Alps from our room. And great location right next to one of the main lifts.
Breakfast was included which was nice, but once the clock hits 10am, breakfast was over. We arrived late at night from London and our watches were not set properly (we didn't realize there was a time change and there were no clocks to be found) so the next morning, we came downstairs for breakfast as one of the employees was cleaning up and there was no attempt to offer us a quick plate or even a coffee. :-(
Since we got in so late (9pm, which is late in Saas Fee) the woman at the reception area let us have free wifi for the evening which was very nice and very considerate!
We stayed for just 1 night and then opted to find a week long apartment rental through the tourist office for 560 frank, total for 7 days. We did not need daily breakfast or room cleanings - for the most part, we are just not "hotel people".
I give Hotel Marmotte a "good" rating and not "excellent" only because I felt like the employees didn't go out of their way to make us feel comfortable and welcome.
