We stayed here for 2 nights. Comfortable, good sized room. Small balcony with great views over Courmayeur. Short walk to the centre of town. Free wifi in the lounge, not in the rooms.

Good breakfast.

We stayed five nights at Hotel Walser in Courmayeur.
It is a good hotel: spacious rooms, comfortable beds, simple but good breakfast, friendly staff, etc.
Price-performance ratio is OK, especially knowing Courmayeur is relatively expensive.
Wifi is available in the lounge, airconditioning is missing.
The restaurant's menu is very limited and deserves a quality boost.
The location of the hotel is fine for day trips in the beautiful Valle d'Aosta and Chamonix (to be reached via the Mont Blanc tunnel within half an hour).

Just returned from a week's ski-ing in Courmayeur and stayed at the Hotel Walser. On first impressions the Hotel looked lovely, old and traditional decor and nicely situated for the main gondola lift (approx 10 mins walk in normal shoes, ski-boots may be a bit longer). We travelled with Inghams and after being dropped form the coach in the middle of a busy roundabout we were escorted to our Hotel across the road. Room was not ready so we ventured in to the town for a bite to eat. Courmayeur is a lovely village with a lovely atmosphere and easily accessed from the Hotel (about 10 mins walk). On returning to the hotel we were told our room was ready and ventured on. Rooms are quite dark and the furniture is old but plenty of storage and space for ski-ing gear. First impressions were good and then I ventured out on to the balcony to admire the well publicised view of Mont Blanc only to hear the traffic noise from the main through road which was 50 yards away. Such a shame as the views of the mountains were amazing. I decided to ask for a change of room as I am a light sleeper and when you opened the window in either the bathroom or bedroom the noise of the traffic was awful. They agreed to move us the next morning as there would be availability so we agreed to wait. Breakfast was good, typical for ski-ing, but plenty of choice and coffee was good too. On returning from our wonderful day's ski-ing we picked up our new room key and they had kindly moved our cases which were all still packed. We entered the room and found the bathroom had a fair amount of mold above the shower cubicle and also it was black all under the window pelmet which ran alongside my bed not a pleasant sight when lying in the bed as you could see it clearly. I complained to the ski rep and she then spoke to the Manager who in turn said it was due to previous occupants who did not leave the window open when showering and therefore caused the problem. She asked if we wanted to move again, but we had unpacked by this stage and were not willing to repack and move again. My initial thought was that we should not have been moved to this room in the first place. I have to say that this was not one day old mold of any description and I also think that because the room was on the outside of the building on the end it probably did not help. However, the cleaner was tasked to try and clean the mold which she did during the day and we came back to a rather strong smell of bleach which lasted for 48 hours but it did not remove the mold to any great extent. That said, we did not want to let this spoil our holiday and the rest of the room was kept very clean throughout out holiday.

I would recommend this hotel on the basis that it is very well situated and also the staff were very warm and friendly, in particular the 2 lovely italian girls who served us with breakfast and evening meals each day, they were exceptional and looked after my husband and I extremely well each day, hats off to them for all their hardwork much appreciated. We did not use the sauna/jacuzzi as it was not switched on until after 4pm in the afternoon and did not get hot enough before you then had to get ready for dinner which was between 7.30pm to 8.30pm.

Courmayeur is a great resort but I would say that the ski-ing is not as vast as other resorts and thankfully there was an opportunity to ski Pila and La Thuille which I would recommend as they both offered excellent variety of ski-ing and the snow conditions were much better. Take a look at Bar Roma which is fab for a bit of apres and offers a free buffet through out the day but they compensate this with the drink prices, 8 Euros for one JD and Coke!

Please note that you have the option of leaving your skis and boots at the top of the mountain but there are other options at the base of the gondola for the same price. Just a thought to note as if you decide to ski elsewhere you then need to bring your gear down in the gondola at the end of the day. Inghams are very good at pointing their customers to the mountain option but it is just a shelf for your boots and your skis are not locked in place but left in a holding pod in the building overnight. Security was not an issue for us but when we viewed the other options they were locked in place with a specific key storage box.



Overall we had a great week of ski-ing and I would recommend this Hotel. I

I stayed with my wife at Hotel Walser at Courmayeur for a skiing holiday in early December and I would say it was the perfect place to be. It is a modern building decorated in a traditional alpine way within 3 minutes walking of the main Via Roma and 8 minutes walking from the ski lift departing the town (which anyway is quite far from the centre of Courmayeur).

The hotel is in a very good location just a few meters from the main entrance into the town from the main road and features a very ample free parking within the building, very useful if you get there by car. The rooms are extremely well cleaned and quite spacious, with all basic ammenities in it, including safe and hair-drier, while space for skis and boots was provided in the basement of the buiding (we didn´t use it as we hired the material). The furniture was somewhat aged, but the room perfectly suited all our needs during our stay. I would highlight that we stayed over a particularly cold period in the region and the room was perfectly hot at all times, as was hot water in the bathroom.

Breakfast was served in a nicely decorated spacious room in the main floor and featured a very complete continental offering with hot bakery available. We had dinner once in the hotel and food was delicious. The cook features regional valdostan cuisine and the result was certainly good.

Finally, I would like to highlight the amazingly pleasent staff at the hotel which worked really hard at all times to accomodate each of our requests with a wide smile, despite some of them being at unconvenient times.

All in all, a highly recommendable hotel in Courmayeur, with the nicest personnel and all the necessary ammenities to allow for a remarkable holiday, well worth the value.

Hotel was good, everyone friendly and had a comfy stay. Meals were fairly basic but filled a gap and was pretty much what we expected. Rooms were comfy, clean and warm. Only a few minutes from main gondola up to ski runs. Enjoyed stay and would go back again.

We spent Christmas in this wonderful hotel, It is one of the nicest and friendliest hotels we have ever had the pleasure to stay in, all of the staff were brilliant, very friendly and helpful, the rooms were clean and warm, the food was also very good. especially the home made soups. I would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone thinking of going to Courmayeur Italy. Thank you to all the staff at the Walser Hotel especially Gianni Serena and Mauritizio.

We booked directly via email with this hotel approx 6 months prior to our trip planned for March. We had reserved a double, twin and one single. A week before we were due to go we emailed the hotel to re-confirm our booking - we heard nothing from them. We decided to call them and were told they were unable to provide us with the original rooms for the first night and they only had a double and triple available due to a large travel agent booking. This was not suitable so we cancelled our booking and frantically emailed other hotels in the area. We managed to get a booking in the hotel listed No1 on Tripadvisor in Courmayeur and we were not disappointed.
