First of all there is very little parking space in front of the hotel. After that it just got worse. The rooms are small, the beds very small. The bathroom shower cubical was too small for an adult to use. No aircon, and our room was in the roof, so very hot. The standard of fabric maintenance and cleanliness was... More

The hotel staff was always missing - making checking in and out a long ordeal. Room not as advertised - we were put in someone's apartment rather than the double room we booked & the staff couldn't even muster up a bar of soap for our bathroom. Nice breakfast. Spa pass is only for 3 hours.

Upon check in we were greeted by a really friendly lady at reception who took her time to explain everything with a small. We felt immediately welcome. The room is cozy, a lot of wood. The room was very clean, of a big enough size including a spacious bathroom. We did not spend much time inside but the time we... More

Great hosting, special thanks to the manager and staff who made our stay very pleasant. This is charming hotel with 2 restaurants: a pizzeria and a brasserie. My husband and I had dinner at their brasserie twice and the food was fantastic. Good location, right in the heart of the town of Charmey, at walking distance from the newly build... More

We stopped off here for a quick coffee before walking down the Jaunschlucht to the Maison Cailler in Broc. Great sunny terrace, good service and nice coffee too. Would recommend this place, as well as the walk down the gorge ...

Nice location, good for excursions like hiking and in winter probably skiing. A bit pricey but for Swiss standards ok. We only stayed 1 night, reached late and left very early, so can't commend on food. We entered through one of he restaurants and it looked quite nice and rustic. Service was good, I had booked this hotel through Switzerland... More

In the center of Charmey, on the high road, well located. Close to the spa and to the hiking trails. Simple rustic decoration. Room was quiet with a nice view. Room was not so well cleaned (long blond hairs on the floor carpet). Staff is friendly but a bit amateuristic. Maybe these were students. I would however not recommend the... More

The hotel Le Sapin is makes you feel welcome straight away. The rooms are cosy and quiet and the continental breakfast consists of various local specialities and is quite plentiful. In summary: This hotel knows its business and makes sure guests are well looked after. Highly recommended!

hospitality with no courage the computer acts as a glue for the various receptionists they cant lift their eyes from the screen just to say hello or welcome... we booked a full double room, full rate months ago, since we had tried the restaurant before and quite like it we thought it would be nice to spend a weekend there....
