“Fun but very pretentious”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2013

Definitely one of the best places to go for apres ski in Verbier and also good fun for a night out with live music during the day and a good DJ playing mostly house music at night. The crowd was quite a good mix; from the cool ski crowd to the rich trust fund brigade and everyone in between. Speaking of cash, unless you are part of the trust fund brigade, I would suggest you bring your credit card and a spare kidney - this place is not cheap!

This has to be the best place for Apres Ski in Verbier. The bands are amazing and the atmosphere electric. With an openng roof when it gets too hot, it remains comfortable even when packed to the rafters. Great outdoor seating area available as well.

Farinet is the best accommodation choice in Verbier, a classic! It couldn't be more centric, super convenient for skiing, shopping, clubbing... everything! It has also the best bar - lounge club in the Alps, with the best dj (Laurence). We always have a great time in Verbier and Farinet is part of it. A few good details: fresh orange juice in the breakfast buffet, dvds rentals for free, great service and manager always helpful and friendly. Some things that could be improved: car parking solutions are not optimal, there is not spa/fitness, maybe a partnership with another establishment could be good? And, of course, if you are not planning to party until 2 pm, the first floor is not the best one. Looking forward to coming back in January!

Thank you for your comments regarding your stay with Hotel Farinet. We are now under new ownership and are taking on board comments that previous customers have made, in particular regarding the noise levels from the bar. We have now spent £1 million on sound proofing to minimise the noise levels in the hotel and taken out the rooms on the first floor and created a fantastic new breakfast room for guests.

Farinet is a nice hotel, right in the middle of town. Apres ski in the sun! Very good and friendly service. The only thing is, if you want to go to bed early you don't want to have a room on the first floor because you will hear the music from the lounge bar.

I have travelled in more than 35 countries and visited the most amazing 5 star hotels but nothing compares to Farinet. This is the place where I cannot wait to return and I will, again and again / hopefully. The heart and soul of this hotel is the staff > Stephanie, Jeancharles, Simon and Andy to mention few who have made our stays unforgettable. Cannot praise you enough! No doubt Farinet has the best afterski in the world, but it is not only the partying that brings us back. The rooms are ultimate cozy with romantic ski getaway feel, the terrace of the room looking over the central roundabout of Verbier bathes in the late afternoon sun and location, location, location is just unbeatable - just get up and go skiing. The boys in the lounge shake you the best cocktails in the town, the ladies in the reception help you with anything you have in mind and there are sometimes nice surprises waiting you in the room like free drink tickets or little bars of chocolate. It is hard to explain the charm of Farinet and you certainly better be certain type of person to understand it - stiff, boring and high maintenance types should not bother... Farinet is the ultimate hotel for fun loving people, who work hard, play hard and love hard. I have my best holidays ever while staying in Farinet and I cannot recommend it enough. Just do not expect to have quiet boring time there. And certainly do not complain about the party next room - instead join it! 5 star atmosphere and highest recommendations all the way. See you next year guys!

Room Tip: If you can afford reserve one of the bigger rooms on 3rd floor

If you want to go to bed early and a quite place, chose another hotel or chose another ski resort than !!!. If you want a great after ski, great parties, central location, cosy bedrooms with Swiss athmosphere and delicious breakfast the hotel Farinet is THE place. We loves it, and greatly recommend

Not only is the hotel in the centre of the vollage, but it is also super cosy and comfortable for a very reasonable price. Staff is friendly and helpful. I heard there is alot of noise at night, but as I was downstairs at the party it didn't keep me from sleeping :-) Very young sporty crowd - perfect for a group of friends who want to have fun!

Room Tip: I ahd the most basic and it was very nice
