“Super Hotel and Super Ski”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2013

My husband and I were truly impressed ... From the first minute until the last! It started with transport to our hotel, which arrived in 3 min despite us having been delayed at Zurich airport. We were greeted by very friendly and helpful staff at the reception, telling us about Sagas Fee and breakfast and dinner arrangements. Our room was on the third floor with balcony and lovely view over the mountains... It was clean, warm and comfortable! I would say it deserves 4 stars rather than the 3 it has now. The room didn't have a mini bar or coffee making facilities, but for us this wasn't important, as we are ski crazy and on the slopes for 5th or more. The breakfast buffet has plenty of choice with fresh bread from the bakery... You certainly won't leave hungry. The dinner is a 4 course meal, varying between meat and fish as main course... Again plenty of food, excellent quality ... And if there is something you would like to change the cook is very accommodating. The ski boots were stored safely with the boot heating system on and working over night. We are happy to return!! (Note - no swimming pool or fitness center ... But the slopes will take care of that!)

Took my family and Golden Retriever Sophie skiing for a week in Saas Fee and stayed at the Bristol. Loved it! The staff made us feel like family and were incredibly attentive. The breakfasts and dinners were amazing; tasty and filling. The location couldn't be closer to the slopes; we skied to and from the hotel every day and hit The Black Bull, located right across the street from the hotel, for après ski each evening. Book the Bristol and you can't go wrong!

I would just like to convey my gratitude to everyone involved at the Hotel Bristol. From the booking process onwards they have shown real proffesionalism, friendliness and understanding. They clearly care about their clients and have made the planning of this trip very easy. A pleasure to deal with.

Many thanks.

Can only say good things about this Hotel: excellent food, very friendly and clean and best location beside the slopes. The food is such a good standard you wont want to visit the restaurants which are generally overpriced anyway!
Could do with a more spacious bar/lounge area but thats the only gripe however there are so many relaxed bars nearby that it's not an issue.
Don't need to say anymore just book it now

Room Tip: All rooms south facing so dont worry!

We highly recommend this hotel in the charming little snow-sure town of Saas Fee

For context we both travel internationally with work to varied destinations and are fortunate enough to have experienced good hotels, food and service around the world. We are a couple in our early thirties without children who live in Basel.

A few things stood out for us, and it's hard to imagine us picking a better place to stay for our first time in Saas Fee:

1. Location
A few minutes walk from the main entry/exit point to the slopes and all the main lifts and right next to the largest ski rental outlet and town (and we received a 20% discount for staying at the Bristol). It's also opposite the (small) heart of Apres Ski (Black Bull, Zur Muhle) so it was all but a hop and skip from the slopes, to the Apres, to the hotel, quick shower and relax and then down for dinner. You cannot beat that. The Apres ski bars were nice and busy from 1600 but seem to close around 1930 so if you value your sleep, you've no need to worry about all night discos across the street! You can also ski in to the hotel from one of the beginners runs.

2. The relaxed environment and service
The family run hotel is a very comfortable and easy place to be. It was excellent to stay at the hotel and nice to stroll down to breakfast or dinner with all of the staff incredibly polite, courteous and attentive. Service generally was excellent and it's the only time i've left a pretty hefty tip for the staff on such a vacation. Well and truly deserved though.

3. Food
We booked a package including breakfast, dinner, ski passes etc. We were considering eating somewhere else for a few nights but the standard of food was excellent on the first few nights so we decided to stay put for the whole week. The second course of dinner comprised a salad bar (which was generally the same each night but with more than enough choice) but the other three courses varies and were not only diverse, but well prepared and well presented - many compliments to the chef. We eat out alot around the world and we were more than happy to stay every night at the Bristol to eat. Also, the dinner menu goes up every morning so if there is something that you really don't like, the kitchen will gladly prepare something else if you give them enough notice. Service also exceptional and you can take the menu at your own pace as you see fit. Nice continental breakfast every morning, nothing too special but all you need before a day on the slopes. :)

4. Cleanliness
Our room was cleaned perfectly every day. Can't say more than that.

To manage your expectations if you travel on business a lot, the room we stayed in was perfectly fine but do not expect the same sort of size or features as the likes of Intercontinental, this a swiss chalet style hotel remember, not a 5-star NYC hotel. The ambience is perfect and in keeping with the rest of the hotel.

You really can't go wrong by choosing the Bristol and we will definitely return in the next 12 months.

Thank you to the whole team and congratulations on your 50th year anniversary,

Mr A.

Room Tip: I think rooms on the third floor probably provide a better view than floor 1 or 2.

This is definitely the best location in Saas Fee. Right before the beginner slopes and gondolas to mountain, but also the village shops and restaurants are at your doorstep. In summer some amazing hiking is also right there. Its a perfect spot.
The hospitality is superb and the family owners and staff are exceptionally friendly and very helpful.I felt like nothing was a hassle and everything was attended to.
Could not help but to feel instantly at home when I stayed in Hotel Bristol.
Very clean with such a cool view into the mountains from balcony and windows.

The hotel is very well located, very close to the ski lifts and ice ring but also to restaurants and shops. Comfortable and clean rooms with a great view of the mountains. The staff and the owners are very attentive and helpful. I will recommend highly this hotel for a family trip. It is clean, quiet and friendly with easy access to everything you need.
