“Always very good, now excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2014

I have stayed in the Valaisia 7 or 8 times and it was always very good. This time it was really excellent. The staff are so friendly and helpful, the Food is superb and the Position, just opposite Le Grand Signal lift is perfect. The Manager and wife are very Hands on and have created a super atmosphere throughout the Hotel. It is near the centre and because of the indoor and outdoor pools, massage (really good) and excercise possibilities is also good if the weather isn't so good. The view from the Hotel is also splendid. Very good value for Money.

Room Tip: 5th floor has the best view

I went to Hotel Valaisia with my husband to relax over the weekend. A friend who knows Crans-Montana well recommended it to us. We very much enjoyed the indoor SPA, with salty water, bubbles, hot and cold pools, sauna and hammam. Entrance is free for the guests of the hotel (including towels). All the staff was very friendly, they really took the time to explain how everything worked. They gave us a card that allowed us to park our card in the nearby city parking (8 FRS for one night--the hotel has a parking but it must have been fully booked). As other reviewers have rightly noticed, the hotel is very close to the ski lift. We were there at the beginning of the Swiss ski vacation week and the hotel was literally invaded by skiers, mostly families with children, which created a very informal atmosphere. The hotel rooms really look like the 1970ies, but that is not too bad (it is sort of vintage and you may actually like the style). There is nothing fancy about them, but all the simple things you need are there: cleanness, comfortable beds, shower, hair-dryer, TV, free wifi, good size cupboard, safe. The hotel also has a nice bar and the draft beer they serve (Calanda, from the Graubunde) is among the best you can find in Switzerland. I would recommend this hotel to people who look a good, practical and simple accommodation that is not too expensive (keep in mind we are in Switzerland!).

Valaisia was great... 15 years ago :). Probably the competitiors of 1987 Alpine Skiing Championship found it as luxurious resort but it really needs structural refreshment.

GOODs
Proximity to ski lift - literally 100m. Great deal.
Water & Wellness Center - really nice benefit after skiing. Watchout - it is very crowded in the season.
Friendly service!

OPPORTUNITIES
It is OLD and you feel it - kids corder, playroom, rooms. There are "tired"
Parking is small and super packed - if you come late in the evening no place to park :(
Restaurant - it seems to be too small for the hotel needs. We didn't know that we need to reserve a table for a dinner and ended up waiting till very late to eat sth.

When we first arrived I had a near on heart-attack at the carpeted walls and the very dated 70's era decor. However, you have to see beyond this and what the swiss do best..... Cleaning!!! The place is spotless e en if dated it looks new dated decor!! Very comfy beds that you mould to, fresh linen and doubles instead of single quilts on single beds... Someone after my own heart. We are here on a business trip and although the hotel is a 15min walk from Crans, it's opposite the ski lift. Hope to check out the facilities later! But otherwise we already love this place and have fallen for its twilight zone charm!

We chose this hotel (my father & I) as it looked like it was the closest to the lifts. I agree with all other reviews that it is in need of a facelift. Rooms are tiny for the price. My father and I were here on a family vacation - I'm early 30s. Most people here seemed to be retirement age and stared at us the entire time.... at dinner, when I tried to use the pool. I was very uncomfortable.
I did enjoy the vegetarian option they made for me every night and the staff were VERY friendly. I filled out a comment card before leaving- the manager had to disagree with me on the price of the room for the size and the dated appearance. He seemed very angry that I would say negative things. But I was not impressed!

Having stayed for two days/nights only I couldn't really take to this hotel. The charm of a formerly sanatorium somehow remains in its walls. Anyway, the room was clean and spacious and the bed comfortable (I had booked a single room with panaroma view and got a double). The ensuite bathroom with its dusky pink ceramic tiles contained a shower only. However, one of the advantages of the hotel is its own saltwater spa including steam room and sauna (free for hotel guests). The other advantage is its location close to the cable car. Perfect for skiing!
At the first glance breakfast buffet looks pretty good but actually offers a small variety of food only (except for several very good and fresh breads) and nothing like full English breakfast either (well, we're in Switzerland...). WiFi is free in all hotel areas but needs a login code that can be used on one device only at the time. My overall impression: Good if you don't expect too much, average if you look for the details.

Room Tip: Always book a room with panaromic view (makes up for other things not that perfect!)

We (family of 4 adults) stayed here the first week of February 2013. Knowing Crans Montana for many years we’ve chosen this hotel because of it’s location opposite the ski lift. We had booked adjoining rooms, but by mistake the first night we had to stay at different floors, the North room being very small, the other facing South was OK. But the staff did it’s best to make things OK for us. We could move the next day to another building. Both connected rooms had balconies and were spacey, one even has a small fridge in a kitchenette. All rooms are furnished as most apartments in this area are; a basic standard but clean. Breakfast buffet was good. Diner the first evening was very basic, but the following days became much better and enjoyable. Sometimes buffets were served, once Swiss raclette was served by friendly restaurant staff. The hotel has also a very good underground car park and we enjoyed the excellent free wellness “Solbad” after skiing everyday.

Room Tip: Rooms on the South are more spacey, rooms on the north small..
