“perfect location but outdated, hence reasonably priced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2012

perfect place for 1 or 2 nights, on boys weekend rather than with family or romance. the hotel is really outdated, particularly the bathrooms, decor, noise insulation and electricity. but this is compensated by good bar, perfect location, ok breakfast and indoor parking (maybe i was lucky in off-season). i would stay here again, but any guest should be aware of more negative points. service is friendly.

Room Tip: stairwell is really noisy, go for high up rooms,

Went here at the end of January with a group of friends, having been attracted by the very good reviews on tripadvisor. I am afraid to say that we were all very disappointed. The rooms were large and comfortable but a bit dated but that wasn't the issue. What was an issue was the appalling breakfast. The very limited amount of hot food was cold and the cold selection was very limited to put it mildly. The waitress was pleasant but trying to get a hot drink was a real battle. without a shadow of a doubt the worst breakfast I have ever had. The ski room was at the back of the garage on the lower ground floor which was okay and you could exit via the garage door.But most of us weren't provided with a key to the garage so upon our return someone had to wait with the skis whilst someone else traipsed through the hotel in ski boots to open the garage door. A real faff. Positives were great location for nightlife and nice bar. Could be good with a little more effort.

The Hotel Phenix has the best location and the friendliest welcome. Just adjacent to where you arrive on the Post Bus.

Guests are friendly too and prices are competitive in this rather expensive resort.

The Cosy Bar is a lovely place to meet and they do a terrific chocolate chaud.

But please don't tell too many people. It's already popular. But they deserve to do well.

Great location next to ski bus stop so not far to walk back after a tough day's skiing. Ski hire shop also next door as is the place to book lessons. Ski hold had no heated boot racks and just a room off the garage definately no frills there.

Big rooms but very dodgy electricity point with cables running off to the appliances, had to fiddle and wiggle them to make the connection to old fashioned tv- would not have passed UK health and safety for sure. good ensuite with shower and bath.

Simple breakfast but served with lots of hot coffee. The bar was the selling point for us, reasonable prices good beer and friendly staff even had a chinese take away menu which we could eat in the bar. The staff friendly but new nothing about skiing which was very odd indeed, couldnt recommend a ski guide, hire shop or where the best snow was-this is really the basic minimum for ski hotel staff to know!!

This is my second time in Phenix hotel and I’m again extremely pleased with the service and everything. The cozy hotel has the best location of all, in a great area to be able to walk around and is surrounded by other restaurants and bars. Nice and spacious rooms with big balcony and great view of the mountain. Fantastic service. Staff are so helpful and warm.If I go Verbier the 3rd time, I"d certainly would want to stay at Phenix hotel.

I was booked to stay in the Phenix with my dad and brother for a week. Due to the UK flight chaos in December, they were not able to make it, and I had to leave early after only a few days of staying on my own. The hotel staff were friendly and very understanding of my situation, not charging me extra for leaving early, and in fact giving me a very good rate.

The hotel is by no means sleek and modern, but it is perfectly comfortable and clean. With all the crazy prices in Verbier, the Phenix is an excellent choice if you want somewhere central and friendly without breaking the bank. I would definitely stay there again.

I stayed in this hotel alone in July for about a week to visit the Verbier Festival.
This is an absolutely nice recommendable hotel, in terms of a perfect location, friendly staffs, a comfortable nice room, and an incredibly reasonable price.
It is located within 1-10 minutes walk to almost every venue concerning the Festival, but at the same time at nicely discreet distant from the very centre of the busy spot.
But it takes only 1 minute to the centre, though.
The guy at the reception is very nice and friendly.
The room I stayed is a double room, which is pretty large, and has 2 closets and a clean bath room, with a huge balcony, from which you can see the Alps mountains.
There is a free comfortable Wi-Fi.
Even though they don't have a restaurant, they have good wine selections at the Cozy bar.
The price is absolutely reasonable. I guess this is one of the most costless in Verbier. But I saw no shortcoming. I definitely recommend this hotel, and am sure to stay here again.
